Architecture

The original cavern building, dating from the 14th century, over the years, has served as a Venetian mansion as well as a monastery’s quarters and storage house.  It was restored in strict accordance with the architecture and geometry of the buildings of Santorini, using local materials, mainly stone, with colors and techniques inherited from the past. This was one of the factors that the property has been officially characterized by G.N.T.O. (Greek National Tourism Organisation) as a Traditional type hotel – one of the only 28 premises of this type on the island. The lluminous white of the cubic building, the black coble-stone terraces, the blue of the water that lies 300 meters beneath it, the gold of the sun above, create a magnificent blend of colours on the canvas of the traditional Greek village that encircles Porto Fira Suites.

The Swimming pool

With its teak decks and comfortable sun-beds is a retreat for hours of relaxation. Sunbathe from April till October, watching the seagulls follow a wind current above the valley of the sea, and over the dramatic fall of the cliffs. The Lava Lounge, by the pool, with relaxing sofas and mind-traveling music is a romantic backdrop for every hour of the day. Benefit from the shadows of the trees for your midday siesta; hide away in a private little cave to sit back and relax while watching the boats arrive down at the Old Port of Fira.
