It's no wonder this boutique bolthole has won numerous awards (including a coveted place in the Condé Nast Traveller Gold List 2012 for Best Location in Europe). And what a location. The views from the infinity pool are unparalleled - your guests will gather before dinner simply to admire the sunset - and the rooms all have terraces looking out onto the lip of the island's famous caldera.
