El Verano is privately located on the east side of Imerovigli, one of the most traditional and picturesque villages of Santorini. There is a very short distance from Fira town, the capital of the island, yet the isolated location of our suites makes the perfect balance for private moments and easy access to the lifestyle.
You may already have been impressed by the famous village of Imerovigli featured in the most carte postales of Santorini around the world. However, it is a matter of a personal experience to visit and discover on your own the unique beauty of this incredible location.
The village is situated in the center-west part of Santorini, only 3.5 km away from the center of Fira, the island’s capital town. Due to its landscape, it is considered one of the most beautiful balconies of the Aegean offering a breathtaking view of the Aegean Sea, as well as the caldera and the volcano above a cliff.
Its name Imerovigli is a compound Greek word coming which means “viewpoint” oriented from the old times, where the location allowed villagers to see dangerous pirate ships approaching Santorini.
Nowadays, Imerovigli is one of the most popular locations to visit in Santorini, an authentic example of Cycladic architecture with narrow alleys, whitewashed houses built on the edge of the cliff, and romantic sunsets and amazing surprises to discover.
