“could not have been any better!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

In a fantastic location, right on the most narrow strip of the island, you are litterally surrounded by the blue of the sea that you can see from every angle of this hotel. The rooms are large, very elegant, yet minimalistic, of typical meiterranean style, rich in every confort and every small detail is there for a reason!
Each room has been designed and positioned in order to ensure you privacy..you hardly realise there are othe guests in the hotel but you. The service was above any expectations as most of the times they anticipated our requests so basically we did not even have to ask!..fantastic breakfast served at the time you request, where ever you want, we suggest by the pool or in one of the many spots with a breathless view of the sea...the freshly baked croissants are a must!! And now the pool, a real attraction of this resort, make sure you have enough memory in your camera because you will take pictures all the time, admiring the unique effect of this pool that seems floating between the blue of the sea and the blue of the sky! Last but not least the great and warm hospitality of the hosts will make us come back for sure and classify this hotel for sure our number one choice in Santorini...

My husband and I visited Greece end June- Early July 2011 visiting a couple of islands and ending our stay in Santorini. We knew after booking our stay at Aenaon Villas that we would be ending our vacation on a fabulous note. It absolutely ended up blowing us away when we arrived. The views were stunning, our rooms were out of a designer magazine and our experience was just heavenly. We were re-living our honeymoon all over again.
Alexandra and her staff (Denis and Alma) were just delightful. We spent two nights just chatting away with Alexandra till mid-night hearing about her stories of her family and how her and her husband built and designed the beautiful villa. I would recommend this place to everyone visiting Santorini. It is simply magical. Just have a look at our photos...you will be amazed. Also...the breakfasts are AMAZING!!! You must have the chocolate souffle, spinach pies and chocolate croissants. We will be back. We promise Alexandra!!! xoxo Nina & Igor your friends from Toronto, Canada.

Spent 3 glorious nights at Aenaon Villas in early July, and it was the perfect spot on Santorini! Alexandra and her staff do absolutely everything they can to make sure all of your needs are met. Alexandra is warm, friendly, and treated us like family. She is the heart and soul of Aenaon. We also had the good fortune of meeting her husband, George, while we were there. Like Alexandra, he is also very warm and genuine. We stayed in the Kallisti Villa, which is the least expensive, and it was gorgeous. It had a spacious living area with large sofa and flat screen tv. There was a step up to the level where the queen-sized bed was located, which was very comfortable. There was lots of storage space for clothing, etc. The bathroom was large and modern, and there was also a kitchenette in the villa. Directly outside our villa was a table and chairs where we could sit and relax. Alexandra has amazing taste, and the attention to detail throughout the entire villa complex is incredible - right out of Architectural Digest magazine. Our villa had a view of the western Aegean, and we simply had to walk around to the other side of the building to be on the caldera side with breathtaking views. Beautiful lounge chairs and bali beds are by the pool, and Aenaon is a very private location. The infinity pool was the perfect place to cool off after a day of sightseeing on the island (while on Santorini, don't forget to swim in Amoudi Bay, and also go to see the ruins at Ancient Thira). Breakfasts were a delicious treat served by Dennis, who was kind, friendly, and always there to help. Each day we were able to select what we wanted for breakfast the following day. Offerings included spinach or cheese pie, an omellette, fresh fruit, yogurt, chocolate cake, croissants, feta cheese and olives, etc. Sipping coffee overlooking the caldera with beautiful cruise ships below is a memory to cherish. Aenaon was the BEST place we've ever stayed at, and we hope to return someday. If you would like to see more photos or have any questions, please feel free to email. Many kind people answered my questions before traveling, and I would be happy to return the favor.

Places like Aenaon Villas are a rare delight. There are 6-7 villa/rooms available in what used to be one larger private getaway, most of which open out onto the pool/terrace area. All of which is picture perfect, simply furnished, cascading down the cliff edge in that perfect white-washed Cycladic style. Breakfast is served on the outdoor terraces perched along the edge of the caldera. You could (and we did) easily leave any exploration of the island for an afternoon with a bottle of wine by the pool.

Alexandra owns and runs the Villas faultlessly. She was able to both recommend and book, or help confirm our pre-arranged bookings; boat tours, restaurants, taxis, etc. The efforts and friendly nature of Alexandra, as well as Dennis and the rest of the staff completes the package. This was a relaxing getaway we thoroughly enjoyed - I hope we'll be able head back in a few years time to find it unchanged.

Imerovigli is the closest village, though not really a convenient walking distance.  The villas are across the road from a bus stop, and taxis can be arranged through Alexandra (all fares fixed). From memory, a taxi to Oia was less than €15, so renting a car for the duration of your stay isn't entirely necessary. We found it comfortable to be living away from the main towns, and that the villas made for a great base from which to explore Santorini (without jostling with the coach delivered crowds).

We'll definitely be returning.

Room Tip: The higher priced rooms open directly on to the pool area (which is shared between all 7 villa/rooms...

The clean, simple and traditional lines of the perfect villas, the spectacular views of the volcano, caldera and the Aegean, the memorable sunsets, the warm and hospitable service by Alexandra and staff, the rich and fabulous breakfasts and unique Santorini wines, the peaceful location, the glorious sunshine filled days lying in the pool looking down at the yachts – all made our stay so special and relaxing. There is truly no place like this anywhere else in the world. Looking forward to returning. Highly recommend staying at Aeneon Villas.

From the moment we stepped into the property we were at " awe". Dennis' warm welcome and helphul hands to carry our (heavy) luggage, and Alexandra's attention to every detail, gave us the best first impression we could possibly have. We were greeted by delicious Santorini wine and fresh fruits, rooms with crisp sheets and minimalistic but yet chic decoration, and spotless bathrooms with the best quality toilletries. The pictures cannot come close to capturing the beauty of this place, regardless of what kind of camera you may have! With breathtaking views in every direction, we started every day with made-to-order breakfast on our location of choice: room varanda, by the pool, or by the sombreros overlooking the caldera. Dinner recommendations, car reservations, non-touristy things to do - everything was taken care of by the most caring and dedicated staff in the world. We certainly recommend the Aenaon Villas and really hope to come back some day! Santorini and the Villas were hands-down the most beautiful place we have been in our lives. We wish we had more time there to just relax and enjoy the view...

It´s difficult to start, every single thing during our vacation in Aenaon Villas was amazing.

As soon as we arrived we felt it was the beginning of some unforgettable days. The hotel is located in the best place of the island where the view allows you to watch the sunrise and the sunset. As we looked into the sea we could easily find harmony in this beautiful set.

We stayed in Villa Elidami for 3 nights. The Villa was very comfortable and the white decoration gave it a fresh and sophisticated touch that perfectly matched with the landscape. During the days we stayed we enjoyed a peaceful environment that let us relax and be with each other. We also had the pleasure to start the day with an exquisite Mediterranean breakfast at the romantic terraces of the hotel.

The owners of the place, Alexandra and George, gave us a very personalized service and their hospitality was outstanding, every advice that they gave us was accurate and helped us enjoy the best of Santorini. Not to mention the nice team, that also attended every single detail and made us feel very special.

As we were there we learned that Aenaon Villas was selected the second best Boutique Hotel in Cycladic islands according to the Condé Nast Traveler Magazine of Greece. We agree with this mention, our expectations were surpassed.

Having the opportunity to be there was such a bless. This experience would stay forever in our memories.
