    Location 3.95 /10

    The hotel's location can prove to be a double-edged sword. The spectacular views across the hills and the craggy Caldeira Bay can get somewhat irksome if you don't have you own means of transport, in which case you're likely to be waiting hours for a taxi to come and rescue you (few venture up that far, and those who do are generally not in the most pleasant of moods!). Therefore, your best bet is to hire a car. The rates are really very reasonable, at around £30 a day or £34 with airport return. You could also opt for a moped but that would admittedly be more complicated given the position of the hotel.

    The hotel is located in the village of Akrotiri, on the western tip of the island and a 15 minute drive from Fira and its international airport.

    Accommodation 6.95 /10

    The residence offers a variety of upmarket guest rooms, including 10 Junior Suites, 3 Senior Suites, and 2 Superior Suites, housed on various floors of the cream-coloured building. All of them are elegant yet impersonal and intentionally sparse. The light colours used in the decor are very relaxing and the interior of the rooms is refreshingly cool, providing welcome relief from the heat of the day and the sun's dazzling glare.

    The most striking part of the Junior Suites is undoubtedly the bathroom, where great attention to detail has clearly been paid and which is done out in a pale and very bright sky blue. As well as a jacuzzi, these bathrooms also feature a mixed-marble wash basin and come with a selection of hospitality products and two bathrobes.

    The same low key elegance is also found in the Senior Suites, which, in addition, have a mezzanine level housing a double bed and come with two marble-clad bathrooms (one on the ground floor and the other upstairs) with a jacuzzi and a large selection of hospitality products. All of the rooms have a flat screen television, air conditioning, and a free cable Internet connection; room service is available until midnight.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The Maison des Lys is a sophisticated 18th century hotel done out in pastel shades that provides olde-worlde surroundings. Deep within the motionless atmosphere of the summer heat, the hotel seems to lie somewhat unconscious at the top of the hill. It is set against a spectacular backdrop in the silence of the countryside and surrounded by immaculately appointed gardens (it is, in fact, rather unusual to see gardeners at work in the hotels of Santorini). These gardens run down to the stone terraces below right up to the pavilion where breakfast is served in the morning and where later on in the day you will be served snacks and pre-dinner drinks .

    The residence does come across as something of a luxury oasis, particularly as spaces here are limited, yet the hotel still has 3 swimming pools (one large one and two private ones) with a hydromassage area and there is also a private car park. You probably won't be surprised to learn that there is no children's club (and this is certainly not the ideal setting to bring children to, as the clientele consists primarily of couples), but you might be surprised to find that there isn't a gym or a sauna either, although the management team is currently working on a plan for the latter.

    Food and drink

    There is no restaurant at the Maison des Lys. However, breakfast is included in the price of your stay, as are the appetisers served at the poolside and in the pavilion bar at the entrance. When it comes to dinner, the hotel has an agreement with a restaurant 100m away where guests can dine at reduced rates.

    Beach

    Given the position of the hotel, there is no immediate access to a beach, although management does have an agreement with several beaches in the area that are accessible fairly quickly down the hill. There are 4 beaches in the vicinity of the hotel: the first one at the Mediterranean Beach Hotel (in the Kamari region), the second at Perivolos, the third at Perissa, and the fourth at Vlychada.

    A free bus service runs twice a day to Perissa beach, equipped with free parasols and deckchairs, and to the airport.

    To know

    The Maison des Lys opened as a hotel residence in August 2008. The hotel operates on a half-board basis, including breakfast, and is open from 1st May until 1st November.

      Open since 2001, the Zannos Melathron was the first hotel in Greece to be awarded the 'Relais & Chateaux' label. It isn't very big, but its service reflects very high standards. It is housed in an 18th century building which is totally enchanting, but mainly reserved for a wealthy clientele. Guests hardly leave the place at all, but benefit from its peace and quiet and admire the view over Santorini island.

      The La Meduse is a small hotel which features typical Cycladic architecture and enjoys a wonderful beachfront location on Perivolos beach, even though you have to cross the road to get to it! It is also close to the local shops and restaurants, but the hotel itself is sorely lacking in facilities, which are limited to a small swimming pool and a breakfast room.

      • Location 7.59

      The Homeric Poems hotel has gradually extended over the years. Since its opening in 2004, new rooms have been added without spoiling the surrounding area or the hotel itself. It only has 19 rooms, but it is perfect as it is, as much in its interior decoration and the warm welcome that it provides, as in the view that it affords over the caldera. It is a real haven for couples who are looking to relax and explore its romantic nooks and crannies, and, to be honest, this place was our favourite for the quality of its facilities and its suites with private swimming-pools!

      Open since 2004, the Icons is a beautiful, harmoniously decorated hotel and wherever you are in it, the view of the caldera is unobstructed. However, you must not be scared of heights if you wish to get close to the cliff's edge! Attached to its neighbours on either side, the Icons stands out due to its cream-coloured walls. Its stairs are a little steep and its communal areas are not very spacious, but it is nonetheless a pleasant hotel whose clientele consists of couples only, and children under 14 are not allowed.

      The Santorini Grace is hard to find but nobody wants to leave once they're there! Everything about this little hotel on Santorini is enchanting. With its architecture, typical of the island, and its position hanging off the cliffside, opposite the caldera, it is a real haven of peace. The chef here is also worth a special mention as he prepares exquisite meals. We still remember them now! It is definitely one of our favourite hotels on the island and most of the guests here come from Britain.
