In a quiet caldera location, occupying 16 restored 18th- and 19th-century town houses, the Aigialos proclaims its intention to be a "Luxury Traditional Settlement." The oxymoron aside -- rather few traditional settlements here or elsewhere have had Jacuzzis, swimming pools, and counter swim exercise pools -- this is a nifty place. The units have all the mod cons and all the creature comforts. As the price goes up, you get more space (two bathrooms, not just one) and more privacy (your own, not a shared terrace or your own balcony). There's an extensive breakfast buffet and a highly praised in-house, guests-only, restaurant.
