The Native Eco Villa is a slice of heaven in the midst of the Mediterranean.
Imerovigli, a village on the island of Santorini, Greece, is said to have some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. The town is often called the “balcony of the Aegean,” and perched on that balcony, ensuring visitors won’t miss a moment of nature’s artwork, is the Native Eco Villa. Balanced on the rim of a cliff overlooking the bay of Imerovigli, the villa offers sweeping views of the Aegean Sea and some of the world’s finest landscapes.
Recently undergoing a complete renovation to increase the property’s energy efficiency and eco-friendliness, the Native Eco Villa sleeps eight, with each bedroom accompanied by its own ensuite bathroom. Each of the villa’s two levels boasts its own outdoor Jacuzzi in which to relax and absorb the breathtaking views. Daily housekeeping and concierge services ensure a carefree stay.
With only 470 permanent inhabitants, Imerovigli is the perfect destination for those yearning for peace and tranquility. Nevertheless, if a little exploring is part of the agenda, Fira, the island’s capital, is located less than two miles south. In town, an abundance of locally made jewelry, leather goods, art, and the freshest traditional foods can be found. Situated on the most easily accessed point of the cliff, the Native Eco Villa could not be more accommodating to the needs of the curious world traveler or the busy career person hoping to get away from it all.
Native Eco Villa is available for rent starting at $1,100 per night, depending on the time of year. A minimum three-night stay is required. villasofdistinction.com.
