Overview

Cori Rigas Suites, located on the caldera's cliff of Fira Town, was originally built and stayed through its 250 years old history as a Captain's House. The present proprietors are the fourth generation of Masters of the sea who mastered the Arts too. Their love for tradition and the sentimental bonds with the building led them to restore it into its original form so as life for once more to emerge.

The building has been restored by local masons according to the techniques of their forefathers, using local volcanic materials, making it a living sample of the traditional Santorini architecture.

All of the highly aesthetic suites and apartments, most of which are bioclimatic*, are furnished with unique handcrafted pieces of furniture and decorated with the proprietors' pieces of Art, paintings, and sculptures. The marble terraces have one of the most breath-taking sunset view in the world not to mention the volcano and the glorious Aegean Sea.

*Bioclimatic rooms have high energy-efficiency since the large heat capacity of the exterior walls protects the rooms from the daily changes of external temperature, creating a very pleasant climate in the interior.
