“Honeymoon Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We spent ten days in October at Aenaon Villas for our Honeymoon. After a stressful couple of months leading up the wedding it was exactly what we needed. When we arrived via taxi Dennis welcomed us by immediately opening the car door and carrying our luggage up to the Villas, whilst George and Alexandra greeted us like old friends. We were shown to our Villa (Kalisiti) and my wife got rather emotional at how beautiful it was; Rose petals on the bed, complimentary wine and fresh fruit, and a vase of fresh flowers.

From the moment we arrived, our every need was taken care of beyond the normal expectations of service, be it booking a rental car or wine tour, or simply a greek salad by the infinity pool. No request was too big or too small. Whilst never intrusive, George and Alexandra provided us with some of the best recommendations (restaurants, sights, beaches etc) that truly made our trip.

Architecturally, so much love and devotion has been poured into this place from its conception to its completion; every detail has been taken into consideration. Featuring functionality and aesthetic appeal, Aenaon Villas is truly a beautiful sight from any angle. In addition, the view of the Caldera is simply stunning, particularly from the Infinity pool.

We would both highly recommend Aenaon Villas without a moment's hesitation--utterly perfect from beginning to end.

I cannot say enough good things about Aenaon Villa's, Alexandra and George are the most generous, kind, perfect hosts and they along with Dennis made our stay very very special indeed. We spent our Honeymoon at Aenaon Villa’s and it simply transcended our wildest expectations!! From the moment you arrive you immediately are made to feel so welcome and at ease. My Husband booked Aenaon Villa’s as a surprise and on arriving my jaw dropped open, such is the beauty of the Villas and the surroundings and the kindness and perfection of the whole experience. There are lots of references to Aenaon being a “heaven on earth” and as far as I am concerned, it’s better, completely faultless perfection- which is saying something!!
Aenaon Villa’s is stunningly beautiful, the contrast between the white, pristine, private spaces and the double aspect azur blue sea is knock out!! Everything is exceptional quality and the whole experience feels very luxurious but not in a flashy way.
The attention to detail is extraordinary from the way that the villa's have been beautifully decorated; to the level of privacy you experience due to George's excellent design.
The breakfast is delicious, perfectly timed and never rushed, ( you can choose when it arrives). We actually found it difficult to leave Aenaon during the day because we just wanted to soak it all up.
I think Dennis is telepathic, you only had to think “ I’m feeling peckish” and a plate of fruit ( beautifully arranged) and a chilled glass of wine arrived without you even needing to ask.
One night we didn’t want to go out to eat and George Alexandra and Dennis fell over themselves to help us order some dinner, Dennis actually went down the road to collect it for us.
After our 5 day stay at Aenaon we left feeling rested, relaxed and restored. We will return to Aenaon Villas again for sure. Until then, we will be dreaming of it.
We cannot recommend Aenaon Villas highly enough, if you’re visiting Santorini, you must stay here. You will not be disappointed.

The reception was very friendly, we were welcomed with open arms. We received useful information about Santorini. This was the best place from every aspect my wife and I stayed at. The accommodation was outstanding, the location was excellent, the view was breathtaking. The place was spotlessly clean, the service was faultless and very friendly. We felt that we stayed with friends. The owners and staff could not do enough for us. The location of the villas was just amazing. We watched the beautiful sunset every night. The design was superb. We would like to return one day and have spoken about our stay to our friends.
We liked everything about the Aenaon Villas.

We visited Aenaon Villas to celebrate our twins leaving home for university and our 18 years of family life in our home that had now come to an abrupt end. We wanted a treat that reflected our hard work in bringing up our girls and that is what we luckily found with Villa Elidami.
It was an absolute pleasure to meet George and Alexandra and we had a lot in common with them both which meant we probably spent too much time chatting to them and interrupting their work while we had all the time in the world.
The villas were all very well designed and ours was at the top of the steps with private terrace looking out at the incredible views of the ocean and sunsets.
Dennis would appear with wine and fruit as we watched the sun go down wishing the days were longer so we could enjoy the villa for longer.
We hired a car and drove to the beaches but only stayed a while as we preferred our villa and its view and didn't want to waste a moment.
We have traveled all over the world and could not think of another place we have stayed with such great atmosphere, service and views. By the end of our break we felt like we were saying goodbye to old friends. We will surely meet again either in London or in Santorini.
Everything about our visit was perfect and couldn't have been better for quiet contemplation of our new life ahead and as I entitled this review it was "A wonderful stepping stone ... to a life beyond !!!"
Thoroughly recommended.

We have just returned from our honeymoon and it couldn't have been more perfect. On arrival we were greeted like family and Georgios and Alexandra couldn't have made us feel more welcome. Georgios showed us to our private terrace and around Villa Elidami, it was so beautiful I actually cried and when I turned to my husband he too was all emotional.... and this never happens!
The whole property is immaculate and very private, with the little touches making it even more special. The views are breathtaking and we watched the sunset every evening from our terrace. We both had a massage (also on our terrace) and it was easily the best massage I have ever had, with the added bonus of it being in the most amazing location.
Dennis was a very attentive host and he too wanted to make our stay as comfortable as possible, for example one afternoon he appeared with fresh fruit smoothies for us both as he thought we might be thirsty, and on our last morning we had ordered breakfast for a bit later, Dennis saw we were up and packing, so he offered to bring us some hot drinks as he didn't want us to have to wait until breakfast arrived.
We forced ourselves to go out in the evenings and Alexandra booked us into the most lovely restaurants and one night she even gave us a lift! Our favourite restaurant was probably Floga in Oia. Oia is a beautiful town with fantastic views but don't wear high shoes!
Georgios and Alexandra really do run this exclusive complex of six luxury villas perfectly. They make it look so effortless and enjoyable and anyone who runs a B&B or a hotel should come here to see how it should be done!
Aenaon Villas is a little slice of heaven and so very special.

Room Tip: Villa Elidami was so beautiful I cried when Georgios showed us around. This villa has it's own v...

We stayed at Aenaon Villas for two nights in late September at the end of our two week trip around the Greek islands and expected our stay on Santorini to be the highlight. We were not disappointed. We stayed in Villa Zanetti, which was a spacious and peaceful villa. It didn't have caldera views as it was looking towards the east of the island, but we didn't find this a disadvantage as we spent most of our time close to the pool or on the terrace area, which had spectacular views, particularly at sunset and whilst we had relaxed breakfasts al fresco. Service was immaculate, nothing was ever a problem. Their restaurant recommendations were top notch, especially Ambrosia in Oia (great for a romantic evening meal) and Psaraki (fish restaurant in the south of the island). The villas are around a 10 minute drive to both Oia and Fira.

Stayed in Villa Zanetti for our honeymoon for 2 weeks in September and words cant express what an amazing place this is!Georgios and Alexandra greeted us as family from the moment we met them.
To begin Georgios showed us the stunning views of the Caldera, told us the history of Santorini how the the Aenaon Villas were built. He showed us the infintiy pool and then we had a delicious wine and the freshest Santorini salad. The villa was spotless, with beautiful fresh flowers and an arrangment of rose petals on the bed.The villa was so private, not overlooked on any side. We had a private veranda where we would sit in the evening and watch the world pass by looking out over the Aegean. The villa was cleaned twice daily by two very friendly cleaners. Everything was so clean, there was never a speck of dust in the place.
Every morning we ate breakfast beside the pool with amazing views of the caldera. The breakfast was fit for kings. Anything you wanted you got. We lay by the pool most of the time because it was so peaceful and relaxing. The pool was so calm and refreshing on the hot days and very beautiful also. Most of the time we had the pool to ourselves as other couples travelled round the island. The sunsets from the pool were dazzling. We travelled to Oia and Fira for sunsets also but nothing compared to the sunset from the Villas sitting out with a bottle of wine.
The staff were very attentive. Bringing fresh fruit during the day and fresh water as needed. Dennis was brilliant, always greeted us with a smile and a friendly word. Alexandra and Georgios were always present and couldnt help you enough.
Every view from Aenaon Villas takes your breath away. No one view is the same and you could never tire from looking out over the caldera.
Really cant recommend Aenaon Villas highly enough. The attention to detail was perfect. I wouldnt consider anywhere else to stay on the island and as far as we're concerned its defintely heaven on earth
