It doesn't take a Socratic scholar to appreciate the natural wonder of Santorini, the Greek island whose dreamy panoramic sunsets, otherworldly volcanic landscape, and iconic white cliffside houses are the stuff of calendars and postcards.

And where better to experience this Aegean island than at the brand new Markezinis Suites, the opulent former home of a Greek Prime Minister.

You'll get a four- ($729) or seven-night ($1,265) stay for two in a Double Suite between April 1 and June 30, 2012, or between September 20 and October 31, 2012. Or, opt for a four- ($999) or seven-night ($1,759) stay for two in a Double Suite between July 1 and September 19, 2012.

You'll also get breakfast for two each day, drinks and fruit upon arrival, a wine tasting for two, and a VIP welcome with early private check-in, and late private checkout.

The stately mansion is situated in the bucolic village of Messaria. Adorned with neoclassical furnishings and regal décor, four luxury Double suites invite even the most chronic overthinker to sink into an antique chaise and rest his weary head.

Not that you'll want to stay inside for long—the glorious Grecian outdoors are an incredible sight. "No island better epitomizes the Greek vacation experience than Santorini," Frommer's says. "This is the Greece of photogenic sunsets and Hollywood backdrops, of blue-domed churches and donkey rides."

Explore the coastline and its many beaches—windsurf in Perivolos or walk the black sand shores of Kamari—and don't forget to look up once in a while at the majestic caldera (volcanic cliffs) above.

Find a tavern in nearby Fira and savor Greek wine and cuisine, or head back to the villa for a romantic dinner at the Markezinis Suites Restaurant.

Awash in sea breezes, sun-soaked days, and lots of local color, you won't have to think twice about heading straight to Santorini on this week's Escape.
