A dream coming true! One of the most beautiful hotels in the world!
Homeric Poems is situated on a cliff on the Caldera of the majestic island of Santorini. A five star property of 20 Cave houses in pastel shades inside, built on the rock, each with stunning views of the Caldera facing the volcano and the deep blue Aegean sea.
The apartments, each one named after a Homeric character, from our great Ancient Greek poet, Homer. They are tastefully decorated with antiques and handmade furniture, a built in double bed, large living room area with sofas, dining table and small kitchenette. The biggest highlight is the unique view you can enjoy from the large furnished private terraces.
My favorite is the Captain’s House. An old captain's house renovated to perfection in 1998, giving its place to three two storey suites. White marble floors, original handmade furniture, antiques from the owner's collection, marble bathrooms and excellent Cycladic architecture make these three suites unique in style, beauty, luxury and comfort. They share a very large pebble stone mosaic terrace separated with flower beds with a big extension with sun beds.
The Caldera view is magnificent from every spot of it. Each suite can accommodate 3 to 5 persons and is around 50 to 70 square meters.
