Ranked #3 of 50 Hotels in Imerovigli
Certificate of Excellence

We spent 5 nights in a standard double room in villa artemis:
- the room was small but charming and well organized, decorated in typical Greek style (white and blue colors, orthodox icon, fresh flowers, private terrace)
- the view from the terrace and the pool is totally breathtaking especially at sunset.
- the owners and the staff are extraordinarily nice, always attentive to their guests' wellbeing, providing useful recommendations for trips and walks in the surroundings and small caring attentions (like delicious pancakes or fresh fruit plates in the evening).

Definitely a place to recommend !

I booked it, based on the reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not (at all)disappointed.
Very friendly staff; super authentic two bedroom suite with terraces on two levels (no. 119). Angela and Chris are perfect hosts and the views are indeed stunning.
In fact, almost all reviews are very true indeed. However, two minor points here just for your attention.
1. The pool. A nice pool but in fact it's more of a large bathtub. Just too small and if your appartment is on a lower level; you'll have to take the stairs all the time to get there. (Reception to pool: 72 steps; sorry, I'm in a habit of counting these things all the time). Good excercise but if you have bad knees or legs, just do not book this place (or in fact any other in Imerovigli; it's steep there). When we were there, the pool was also used by guests from other hotels nearby. This is obviously not the intention of the owners of Artemis (but they can hardly check all the time) but as the number of deckchairs/loungers is very limited (only 8 in total), it's not that nice if you walk all these stairs and find the place is full.
2. Hot tub. Obviously a nice feature on your terrace but despite the fact that they say to clean the water every week, ours was just too dirty for words. By the way; who needs the tub as it was 32c when we were there. The tub might be nice when it's less hot outside.

But the positive side. Very, very firiendly and attentive staff and hosts! They'll do just everything to make you feel at home there. Angela loves cooking and almost every day they'll surprise their guests with something from the kitchen or oven. Pancakes, tiramusi and just a fruitplatter. Very nice indeed.
Good beds, good AC in the rooms; fairly large fridge whcih they can stock on request). Very punctual breakfast service (always service in your room or on your terrace; this place does not have a restaurant)

All in all it was a treat to stay here. We'll be back.

My husband and I decided to come to Santorini on the spur of the moment and we were not disappointed. Everyone says the views are amazing, but you cannot fully comprehend it until you see them yourself. There are not enough superlative cliches to cover it.

When we arrived in the airport, our transfer was waiting for us and it was just a short ride to Artemis Villas. We had flown from Milan at 6am that morning, so when we arrived we were still a bit tired and hungry. Turning up at reception, Angela immediately offered to cook us breakfast, asking us how we would like our eggs cooked. We were shown to our room (superior studio with an outdoor jacuzzi!) and a delicious breakfast was served to us on our private terrace just minutes later.

Everything at Artemis is spotlessly clean. It is amazing. But the thing that makes it so perfect is not only the location and the views, but the staff is the best you will find on your travels. They go above and beyond in everyway to make your stay perfect. My husband had to work during our stay and was having trouble getting a good wi-fi signal (our room was fairly far from the wireless router hub) so Angela sent her brother out to get him a USB antenna to help boost the signal. He brought it back w/in an hour! Try that at any Ritz or Four Seasons, and I bet you won't get the same response!

We stayed one night in a superior studio and 4 nights in the white suite. The terrace of the white suite is the best part of it. Breakfasts were delicious every morning. We spent afternoons relaxing and reading and looking out over the caldera. When we got hot, we went up to the pool (fantastic views from there too) for a refreshing plunge. Great lounge chairs w/ cushions by the pool also.

Imerovigli is THE spot to stay on Santorini. We went to Fira, Kamari, and Oia and we were soooo happy that we booked in Imerovigli. It is the only place we would consider staying when we return to Santorini. We thought the sunsets were much better than in Oia!

During our stay, we also checked out neighboring hotels just to compare, and we KNEW we made the right choice at Artemis Villas. If you are the type that likes 5 star luxury, maybe this is not the place for you, but if you want a comfortable, spotlessly clean place with gorgeous views and real Greek hospitality, then do not hesitate to book Artemis Villas!

Our third visit to Artemis Villas was just as enjoyable as he first two. Chris, Angela and their friendly staff contribute to making this a place to return to again and again. Artemis delivers what it promises: a stunning location, reasonable prices in comparison with some other high end accommodation, and comfortable well appointed rooms.

Artemis would be an ideal honeymoon spot, but is just as good a bet for a few days rest in a busy island hoping schedule, or a couple of weeks exploring Santorini, sitting by the pool working on the tan, and watching the sunsets from your balcony. It's difficult to imagine a more spectacular view, and Artemis arguably has one of the best locations on the island.

Having read all the reviews we agree with you all. It was beautiful. Angela & Chris were wonderful hosts & made us most welcome. Nothing can prepare you for the view from your balcony first morning. We enjoyed the location an easy walk to Fira but far enough away during the daytime from the Cruise ship crowds. Comfortable room, great breakfasts, nice pool. We will be back...

Where do I even begin to describe this unforgettable experience? We were supposed to arrive in Santorini on a Wednesday (and leave on Sunday, trust me, you need AT LEAST this many days to enjoy the island if not more. I would recommend 5-7 days.) Unfortunately, we encountered a 24 hour workers' strike in Athens, and no boats were leaving Piraeus until the following morning. We called Artemis Villas and spoke with Angela (one of the owners), and she was so kind to not charge us for missing our first night. When we finally arrived late Thursday afternoon, we were greeted by the other owner, Chris, on our balcony. He showed us how to use our jacuzzi, a briefing about the room, etc. Shortly after, he sent up some amazing dessert and refreshments after our 5 hour ferry ride.

Chris, Angela, and the rest of the staff were very accommodating. They answered every single one of our questions and needs. They definitely make you feel like a part of their family. We stayed in the superior studio with outdoor jacuzzi (and marble bathroom), and it was worth every penny! It is so great to come back to our room and watch the sunset on our own private balcony with a jacuzzi facing the sunset. Imerovigli is the best location to stay if you want to start and end your day with the most breathtaking view of the island. Oia is a nice and cute little town, and I definitely recommend that during your visit, you spend at least half if not most of one day in that area (and then return to your hotel in the evening to watch the sunset), but nothing beats staying in Imerovigli. We rented a car during the entire time that we were there, and it was definitely useful. We were able to drive down to the beach in Perissa on one day, visit Oia and Amoudi beach, and visit the town of Fira during our short trip. Our hotel was very central and was just so convenient and accessible to all of the island. My boyfriend and I were so glad that we chose Artemis Villas. We are definitely coming back when we return to Santorini in the future.
