On the northern tip of Santorini, Greece, Hotel Mystique's clifftop location offers exclusive tranquility and some of the most staggering sunsets in the Aegean. Handcrafted from local stone and materials in the timeless, Greek island style, Mystique's suites look like they've grown out of the landscape. Your luxury accommodation opens onto a private, sea-facing patio where you can choose to take your meals, or indulge in an Aegean seaside massage. The hotel has mountain bikes available for you to get around the town of Oia. For touring further afield - Mystique has an arrangement to use the facilities of the Vedema Resort and the beach on the far side of the island - a Smart car is a smart option. To complete your Santorini vacation, take a semi-private catamaran tour of the caldera. From the Charisma Gourmet Restaurant, the views of the sea across the infinity-edge pool serve as a reminder of the tiny distance your fresh local seafood had to travel. And the Secret Wine Cave is ... well ... that'd spoil the Mystique.
