In the midst of the white stepping-stone houses and glory of Oia is one of the most individual - particularly the individually designed and styled rooms and suites - hotels in Santorini.

Art Maisons is a collection, a gathering of festive romantic design frolic - luxury meets the art of the special. Art Maisons is in fact two creative clusters - at and around Oia castle are magical suites on and in the cliff-side and then, in the centre of Oia on a sort of rocky level promontory, a house and several suites take up this majestic perch with views of the village and the monumentally magical view of the Santorini volcano.

The suites at the Oia castle cluster are the tour de force of Art Maisons design and decor prowess. These amaze you with cave swimming pools, magic balconies with white adobe-curved edges and lounge chairs which support you in comfort as you dream (but dreams are not necessary - you are already where you dreamed of!), whimsically luxurious bathrooms and chic and inspired interiors and furniture, neat and swish kitchens and always somewhere to slink down into a chair...and the view! Amongst the most romantic suites you could stay at in Santorini, you will vow to return!.

Aspaki is the part of Art Maisons that springs out like a step in the clouds, in front of the centre of little Oia village, offering a fantasy in reality. With a larger "house" which looks like a romantic version of a lighthouse-keeper's de luxe cottage, and below this you take steps to the suites which are equally inspired - luxury meets romance, meets romantic fantasy. All of these enjoy the main view to the volcano and a dazzlingly pretty look back at the speckled, stepped houses of the village. Houses lit in the sun like a sparkling tiara and at night, by the scattered lights reflected by the white and pastel coloured walls.
