An Eco-Friendly Escape: Villa Celeste on Santorini from The Greek Villas

Memorable holidays begin in the Greek Islands — in a villa like this one. Located on the edge of a cliff in the village of Imerovigli, Santorini, this is Celeste — a four-bedroom, two-level villa refurbished from an older original house, with what The Greek Villas calls “the world’s most beautiful scenery.” Look out from your spa-equipped balcony on the Aegean Sea, lounging in your easy chairs, and you’re likely to agree. Celeste is located for easy access in a prime spot on the bay, which makes not only for expansive views but for convenience. And that convenience continues: each of the four double bedrooms has its own bathroom; each floor has a Jacuzzi (one indoors, one outdoors). And it’s easy to go from one floor to the other, on a central spiral staircase carved right into the mountain.

The décor is simple, with soothing white and gray bedding and furnishings as suitable backdrops to the vivid colors of outdoors. Yes, the villa is air-conditioned, but not to fret: you’re cooled with energy-efficient and eco-friendly equipment. So relax and enjoy a meal or snack you prepare in your fully-equipped kitchen, only steps from the outdoor lounge area and balcony; after a full day of enjoying rambling about the island — including a small village, about 2 km away — key down with a glass of wine or fresh fruit and enjoy a DVD movie or satellite TV. A Wi-Fi and media center add to the total Santorini pampering experience — but chances are you’ll already feel pampered enough by the ambience of this easy-living vacation villa. This is just one of many villas available for holiday rentals in the Greek Islands; take a leisurely browse through The Greek Villas site and you’ll see options galore for your next trip.
