“Fantastic Family Business!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

My friend and I were so lucky to stumble upon these villas during our stay in Santorini. We were met by the owner at the port and spontaneously decided to stay at Villa Aretousa that is run, by him and his family. The rooms are clean, neat, spacious yet cosy. They make you feel so at home! One evening, we sat with the family and drank some of their homemade wine with them! They’re always happy to help with anything you may need. Also, they have a beautiful pool and the location is great; really close to Perissa beach, nice bars and restaurants. I would definitely recommend it and hope to be able to stay there again. Thank you for having us!

I booked to stay here from 13th to 19th june, based on the feedback left and i was not dissappointed. Spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated rooms, cleaned daily by Areti, I prepared all my own food and all that i needed was provided. Excellent location, near all you will need for a great stay in Santorini. But its the family for me thats makes this place extra special (George, Areti dad and mum) son Jacob and daughter Despoina, who work hard day and night to tend to your needs or just a chat and sample the red wine! and home cooking. Many thanks to them all for my great stay.

Room Tip: Book early!! Just ask, simple as that

We stayed 2 weeks in a double room, with air condition, tv, fridge and full kitchen utensils. Very clean with excellent room service every day. Very nice and clean pool, free Wi-fi and very quiet location next to a supermarket, bakery and near the beach. The family that runs it are always around and extremely friendly and helpful with everything. They even transferred us free to and from the airport in the middle of the night, and to top it all they let us sleep the first night free when we came at around 06:00 in the morning!!!!

Thanks to Giorgos and his family for their contribution to a fantastic 2 weeks holiday in Santorini!!

Just returned from a really relaxing 10 days in Santorini. The villa is brilliant and the airport was the icing on the cake. The price is unbelievable. Clean towels every day and bedding changes every 2-3 days. Really friendly family with lots of helpful tips. The best was seeing the sunset and wine tasting at Santo wines. Great value holiday with lovely memories. Thank you.

The hotel owner was waiting for us at the airport even though flight was delayed by 3 hours, and also dropped us off to our other hotel for the 2nd week of our holiday. The first couple of days we spent by the pool and were pretty much the only people there, the family brought us homemade wine, snacks and vegetables from their garden. The room was spacious, very clean and a large balcony, for the price it was so much better than what we expected! Couldn't recommend this hotel enough for a quiet peaceful holiday!

My wife and I stayed here for the last week of May. It's a small family run guesthouse and everything was spot on. We organised a free pick up from the airport via email before the holiday. We were offered the choice of two rooms upon arrival (it was still low season and less than half full). The location was great; close to the beach, mini market, bakery, cheap bars and very good tavernas (it's also at the foot of the mountain that leads to ancient Thira, which was a fun 1 hour hike to the top). The room was spotless & comfortable, complete with full size fridge, air con, mini cooker and safe (bring your own hairdryer). The family were friendly and helpful and obviously pride themselves on offering quality service to their customers. During a couple of "laze around the pool" days we were given complimentary small glasses of home made wine & snacks, which were lovely. At the end of our stay the father then drove us back to the airport and refused all offers of a tip. Santorini is a stunningly beautiful small island; we hired a quadbike to get around. We would also recommend the sea kayaking excursion listed on Tripadvisor for a fantastic day out (we had never "kayaked" before, however the guides were superb)

Excellent, warm welcome. Clean, comfortable rooms. Good beds, free Wi-Fi. Thanks for the recommendations of good restaurants on the beach. For this price - the best deal. Its a small pool. A quiet, cozy place. Its parking lot. Walk to the beach about 10 minutes. To store 2 minutes. From the old port in the car - about 10-15 minutes.
