“Best hotel I have ever stayed in- come here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

This really is the best hotel I have ever visited! Even before we arrived the staff were very helpful at arranging our visit including recommending restaurants for my birthday (La Maison and Anogi which were both lovely) and they confirmed we could come with my parents to sit by the pool until we could check in (my parents were not staying at the hotel so this was a special touch). We were given welcome drinks by the pool and they kept our luggage until our room was ready. The room was amazing- the most gorgeous view of the caldera and we had opted for room with a hot tub which was so worth it! The room itself was pretty and had a lovely bathroom with huge shower. We got fresh fruit and bottled water in our room and were given free tea/ coffee and cake in the morning and afternoon. There was extra free drinks by the pool every hour and also a happy hour of free cocktails one hour a day over sunset too. The staff were amazing throughout our stay and made us feel so welcome. Chris made sure everything worked perfectly for us including sending up a bottle of sparkling wine on check in and another with a huge amazing cake (and candle) later that day for my birthday celebration. We even had a member of staff walk us to the restaurant that evening as it was a bit confusing to explain. Nothing was too much trouble for the team and they went out of their way to make my day special- it would'nt have been half as good at another hotel, I felt like a queen for the day. The sunsets are spectacular and we got two as Chris let us stay at the hotel the next day until our late boat which was so kind. A massive thank you to Chris, Angela and the whole team, I really hope I can come back one day and would recommend this hotel to anyone. Well worth every penny!!

Room Tip: All rooms have amazing views but ones with their own jacuzzis are extra special

We had 10 nights at Artemis for our honeymoon, and it was the most amazing holiday we’ve had. We had tried to book one of the deluxe suites, but they were fully booked. We weren’t disappointed with our lovely room though which had (what we thought) was the best terrace in the hotel. We were picked up from the port (complimentary transfer) and upon arrival Chris welcomed us and gave us an overview of the island. We were settled on our terrace with a complementary welcome drink and snacks, and the service just got better from there. The hotel has the best view of anywhere on the island. The sunsets are breath-taking every evening, and what’s better is you can enjoy them with numerous free cocktails brought to you by the super friendly staff! The pool area is never very busy so you’ll always get a lounger, and again we were spoilt with endless free water and ice creams and other treats whilst we sunbathed. The lunches are delicious – you must try the chicken salad made by the lovely Sonja, and the tzatziki is the best we had while in Greece.

There are many fantastic restaurants nearby for dinner in Imerovigli and Firostefani, and I would recommend the beautiful walk along the coast to Fira (takes 20-30 mins). It’s a great opportunity to nosey at all the other hotels on the cliff side, and to take photos of the stunning scenery. We hired a car to explore the beaches (my favourites were perivolos and kamari), and the historic town of Akrotiri. You have to go to Oia for diner, it’s absolutely stunning with little white washed houses and cobbled streets. Just a warning – don’t book a “sunset” restaurant near the castle, it’s not relaxing for as soon as the sun sets you are surrounded by tourists taking photos.

Back to Artemis – one night we couldn’t get a taxi to Fira (we were being lazy) so Chris and Angela dropped us off. They also upgraded us for our last 2 nights to the white suite which was beautiful and very spacious. The service is absolutely second to none, and when we return to Santorini we won’t consider staying anywhere else. Thanks for such a fantastic holiday!

Kaldera= the volcanic cliff* of the main town of Santorini!( *have a look at the web).
My sons got married in Santorini last year (the younger), on 2011(the eldest) and had the chance to see the Artemis Villas! Angeliki & Christos are very nice people and excellent hosts!
The view from the verandas of the Villas to Kaldera and to the volcanic islands -right opposite- is a unique experience! Service is also fantastic!
Whoever you are, if you have not visited Santorini, try to be there and stay at the Artemis Villas!

Room Tip: All villas overlook Kaldera!

In preparing for our visit to Santorini, we read TA reviews extensively and evaluated a number of options before ultimately deciding upon Artermis Villas. As mentioned already by many other reviewers, Chris and Angela have created a 5 star experience for their guests. Why?
1- Staff: never without a smile, always engaging us, proactive in their service, a well-oiled team.
2- Location: quiet, relaxing, tremendous sunset views from our balcony. We valued quiet and views over convenience so keep in mind that Fira is a good 30 minute walk away.
3- Value: in our opinion, you won't find a better value (location, service, experience).
Chris and Angela: AMAZING. Great hosts during our stay and always went out of their way to help. Willing to book and change restaurant reservations, airport transfers, etc..

A few things to keep in mind:
Rooms are smaller, fewer amenities so if this is important to you, then you might consider another location. For us, it was perfect and the happy hour each day is a excellent extra.
Jacuzzi on the balcony - we had in our minds that it'd be used daily but we we ended up only using once. Don't let this influence your decision either way and focus on your overall experience.

My husband and I just came back from our holiday in santorini last week and we stayed in Artemis Villas. Hats off to Chris and Angela as well as to all the staff as they were so accommodating and very polite. The place is very quiet and relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of lots of tourists. The views from room 114 was just amazing! Restaurants nearby are so close we didn't have problems looking for place to eat. We love Mezzo restaurant. Food was superb! Angela was very helpful if we needed directions to go to places. Breakfast was lovely as well. Overall it was an unforgettable experience staying in artemis villas as apart from the views, the rooms were kept clean and tidy. Only negative side is that we cannot stay longer.

Well it's exactly one year to the day that I asked my fiancee to marry me whilst staying at Artemis Villas. We have only the most amazing and fondest memories of this luxury accommodation. Angela and Chris are very welcoming hosts and we would always return here to visit. Truly outstanding and good value for money........

Just got back from our honeymoon on the beautiful island of Santorini, and this hotel gave us everything we were hoping for and more. It starts with the owners Chris & Angela, who are so kind and helpful. Being so far across the world can be intimidating if you aren't an experienced traveler, but these 2 made sure that all of our questions were answered and could not have been better.

Then we get to the views! WOW! You are literally sitting on the side of the cliff, so the ocean is directly below, and with the caldera perfectly positioned in front of you, it's pretty jaw dropping. So much of our time was spent just sitting on our balcony and appreciating where we were and what we were seeing. Every night between 8-9, we would sit in the jacuzzi and watch the sun set, which is something that can't really be explained but has to be experienced. It creates this tranquil, almost surreal atmosphere that really hit hard every single night.

The room we stayed in (Superior Studio w/ jacuzzi) was pretty small, but it didn't bother us at all. We were there to take in the views and be outside exploring, not sitting in a hotel room! It was RIDICULOUSLY hot during the day, so the small air conditioner above the bed was exactly what we needed when coming back to the room, or laying down for the night.

The only negative I would bring up (which isn't even a negative, just a fact of the island) is that you will be needing comfortable walking shoes and need to be in relatively good shape to get around, especially maneuvering around the hotel area...because of the fact it's built into the cliffs, there are lots of steps that you'll be regularly climbing up and down. My wife and I are young and active, so it didn't really bother us, but we commented a lot that it might be difficult for older travelers.

The last thing I'll mention is the actual location of the hotel (Imerovigli) because that was one of my biggest question marks before arriving. Were we staying in the right area?? I think after seeing almost all of the island and towns, the answer is yes...Imerovigli is less populated, which means quiet and peaceful. From what I saw, it has the prime spot for watching the sunset and the best view of the caldera. The 2 main towns on the island are Fira (15 minute walk along an incredibly scenic pathway) and Oia (20 minute bus ride, costs $1.80 and is actually a really nice bus!)...

All in all, couldn't recommend this place enough!
