Hello my dear friends! Today we are not anymore in Oia! Nope! We are in the highest part of the island: Imerovigli.

Here it’s quieter (that is: way less tourists) and since Imerovigli doesn’t have any particular site to visit, it’s the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the view, the pool, read, take pictures, walk around (although I recommend to rent a buggy so you can explore further). In sum: welcome to the Iconic paradise on Earth!

In Imerovigli the hotel you pick is even more important as this is the place where you will come in order to relax. If Oia is the most visited and busiest town (along with Thira), Imerovigli would be the “relaxing” spot of Santorini.

After 4 days in Oia, I was more than happy to switch and stay at the Iconic Hotel in Imerovigli. I heard this hotel was incredible and had not only the best views but also the best chef named Kostas, who will cook different Greek dishes everyday from breakie to dinner! Indeed, I wasn’t disappointed! 4 days here gave me more than time to try it all (and probably gain some kilos)!

Oh and another big plus: as you could see, their plunge pools’ views were definitely unbeatable and probably the best in the Island!

Imerovigli also surprised me: in fact, being located in the highest part of Santorini, makes it the perfect spot to capture some nice shots not only with boats but also with its surrounding Islands. I was having my breakfast, lunch, orange juices and chilling moments by the pool with views I didn’t get from Oia!

After 2 days relaxing between my private pool and the Infinite one + eating the delicious dishes of our Chef Kostas, it was time to get some action! We therefore rented a buggy and went to explore the Island black beaches! Yes, Santorini has black beaches indeed! And I bet a lot of people that come to the Island never heard of the volcanic Monolithos beach located next to Kamari at a distance of about 9 km from Thira.

We explored the island with a buggy during the morning but it was pretty windy, so instead of wearing a bikini I wore sportive garments to keep me warm. Nevertheless, the view was stunning! I wouldn’t mind to spend more mornings on this spot, it was such a peaceful place, perfect for meditation. Oh! And no tourists!

During our last night at the Iconic we tried another plunge pool, but this time it was located inside the rocks of the caldera. Yes, what you see below is a rock that composes the caldera standing right behind me. How cool is that ?! We were not only inside the caldera but we could see Imerovigli by night standing just front of us.

I’m very happy to have spent here 4 incredible days at the Iconic, such a great experience! Oh and of course, getting to know some delicious Greek dishes (Hello Gym! Yeah I’m a foodie, you know that)! Thank You Dear Kostas for your amazing dedication in the Art of cooking!

If you love food like I do, then don’t look further, this place is the right spot for you! You will have a dedicated Chef to prepare you unique daily dishes like if you were at home! Even for breakfast we had different dishes everyday! No buffets, everything is brought to you.

Alright my dear friends, time for me to get some sleep and hope to see you soon!

Xoxo, Melanie
