Why Stay At Petit Palace
Enjoy the quiet side of bustling, beautiful Santorini at this intimate island hotel, carved into the cliffs of a millennia-old volcano and overlooking the crater's sapphire lagoon.
Popular Santorini may boast the Greek Aegean's hottest nightlife, but this latest addition to the crowded hotel scene distinguishes itself with an emphasis on warm hospitality and traditional island tranquility. Constructed in the classic Cycladian architecture of whitewashed walls, arched windows, and terraced patios, Petit Palace has 12 unique, distinctly contemporary guest rooms, their neutral beige-and-gray palette accented by sleek mid-century-modern divans, apple-red desk chairs, and satiny black bedspreads. The smallest of these airy suites is a generous 375 square feet, but several measure nearly twice that—and all boast whirlpool tubs and private balconies with endless views of the too-blue-to-be-true Aegean. Our favorite details: the Greek bath amenities by Apivita and mini-fridges stocked with regional treats like honey-drenched sesame bars. This tiny hotel promises to be one of the island's most popular spots, but for now, it's still an unknown Santorini gem.
Be sure to order a Summer Bramble cocktail (Bombay Sapphire with muddled strawberries, lemon, and apple juice) at the poolside Elia restaurant as the sun sets over the Aegean.
Less-active types should choose the Petit Suite rooms, which have fewer stairs to navigate (the remaining suites require walking up a steep staircase).
Arrive at Santorini National Airport (JTR) which is approximately 3 miles (10 minutes) from the hotel.Fira, Santorini, Cyclades, Greece

Why We Love Santorini
Check out Fira, the capital of Santorini, a scenic two-mile-jaunt from Petit Palace. Central Theotokopoulou Square is where locals come to meet and mingle, while tourists browse the boutiques and sample the nightlife on the surrounding narrow, cobblestoned streets.
Where to Eat: Family-run Taverna Dimitris has great ocean views, but the real attraction is its Shrimp Saganaki: plump prawns served in chunky, spicy tomato-and-onion sauce and topped with melted feta.
