EROSANTORINI Fact Sheet

October 11, 2016

PROPERTY OVERVIEW
Perched on a 1,000-foot cliff overlooking Santorini’s iconic caldera on a lush two-acre Estate, EROSANTORINI is a new luxury retreat offering an experience as extraordinary as its unrivaled location. The island’s first truly private, exclusive-use resort Estate meticulously designed for year-round enjoyment, EROSANTORINI features four independent suites and sleeps up to ten adults and four children.

Reflecting a new concept of hospitality represented by the quintessentially Greek philosophy of “philotimo,” the property’s resident host is on hand to make guests’ every desire a reality. The Estate’s chef brings his Michelin-star pedigree to the kitchen, where he designs menus each day around guests’ personal tastes and cravings, showcasing the finest offerings of the region – from fish caught that morning to Estate-grown fruits and vegetables and delicacies from the local market.

Dramatically positioned on the edge of the cliff for jaw-dropping 180-degree caldera views, EROSANTORINI’s v-shaped infinity pool is the largest on the island, cascading over three levels with underwater music selections customized to guests’ preferences. From the harmonious layout of living and gathering spaces—where natural beauty takes center stage—to the spirit of philotimo that inspires every gesture, EROSANTORINI is designed for, and dedicated to, total serenity in mind, body, and spirit.

The property is easily accessible from Santorini’s airport (5 km/3 miles) and port (8 km/5 miles). Transfers to and from the airport are included.

DESIGN 
Conceived and meticulously executed by Athens-based x2 Architects, along with acclaimed Italian designer Paola Navone, EROSANTORINI is the epitome of contemporary Mediterranean sophistication. The graceful cubist-inspired buildings and outdoor living spaces are laid out on three levels, gradually unveiling the staggering panorama and framing it with serene, harmonious lines.

Paola Navone, recognized worldwide for brilliantly melding a modern design aesthetic with local materials and traditional handicrafts, has brought her prodigious gifts to EROSANTORINI, creating quintessentially Greek interiors and open-air “salons” that exude an effortless barefoot chic.

SUITES  The Estate’s four private suites, designed to sleep ten adults and up to four children, are thoughtfully laid out for optimal communal living and feature glorious views from all vantage points, both inside and out. Flexible living spaces are easily transformed into common areas, allowing for the optimum enjoyment of the property, depending on each group’s needs.

Three suites feature varied one-bedroom layouts, with easy open floor plans and gracious indoor and outdoor living areas that are easily adapted according to the guest’s specific needs. A separate two-bedroom bungalow, adjacent to the Estate's spa facility, offers even more flexibility.

In and around each airy suite, guests experience exquisite touches of luxury and taste. Each offers marble bathrooms with radiant-heated floors, fireplaces magically suspended from the ceiling, outdoor showers, its own landscaped courtyard, WiFi, air conditioning, fully stocked refrigerator, Nespresso coffee maker, fine local Apivita bath products, luxurious plush bathrobes, 40” LCD TV, iPad/iPhone docking station and an electronic safe.
