This villa is off the beaten path, but the good news is that while we were there they paved the road so that helps! :) The private pool was great and the view was amazing. It's on the east side but most of the Santorini experience is on the west, so I highly recommend having a car or an ATV rental as taxis are expensive.
Our hostess was so incredibly helpful and always there to answer any questions or help us make dinner reservations. She is basically a full-time concierge that you can reach via WhatsApp while you are staying. Her cousin cleans the villa daily and is also available to answer questions while she is around.
highly recommend if you want something peaceful and out of the touristy zone. It was only a 15-20 minute drive to Oia/Ammoudi Bay. It's a little longer to get down south to the black sand beaches and the marinas but not bad at all!
Me and my family had a wonderful and relaxing stay in this lovely villa. The owner Maro took care of our every need including organising transfers, car hire and excursions; an excellent host. The villa was cleaned daily and breakfast is provided which you cook for yourself. Excellent satellite TV including Netflix. The Villa is modern and decorated to a high standard with two good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. I think it is suitable for four people even though it can sleep up to 6. There was 5 of us the 5th was a small child so it worked well for us. The kitchen diner had good kitchen facilities and dining table and a sofa bed but if you wanted to chill in the evening it would feel a bit tight. The outside space is nice and spacious with pool, sun loungers, dining table and BBQ and not forgetting the wonderful sea view and access to a pebble beach. We loved our stay here and highly recommend it. The area is quiet but Oia and Fira only ten minutes drive away. Hiring a car is recommended.
Well where do I start. The villa itself is lovely, its a little off the beaten track in so far as the main attractions of Santorini are on the other side of the island, but with an island that is so small it doesn't matter, everywhere is within a 20min drive anyway. The accommodation is great, superb location, well equipped and set up for either a quiet get away or family living.
The owner and her family couldn't have done more for us and we found ourselves feeling like we belonged to the family by the end of the two weeks break we had with them. But they are not intrusive and respect your privacy.
I could go on about the place for a long while but it still wouldn't do it justice. You need to see it for yourself.
The owner, Maro, was so helpful with all aspects of our booking, car hire, transfers etc. she even managed to get me extra time to hand in the car as I had made a school boy error and it would have meant sitting in the airport for hours.
The cleaner, Eya, cousin to Maro. was a ray of sunshine in herself, the wife struck up quite a friendship with her, she couldn't do enough for us and always had a smile on her face, even when she was working so hard to make things right.
The pool guy, Atonis, father of Maro, made sure all the pool area was spotless and ready to use each day.
in short I couldn't fault the place and the people who we met.
I cant recommend this place enough, you need to go and see it for yourself.
It's indeed a paradise on earth, unfortunately we only had a day and we spent that in hopes of extending our trip at this ausum place. Maro is the best host I have met till date. She was at the Port to drop a friend and was courteous to offer us a free pick up to us from there. That's a big gesture! The villa has a private pool access to a beach. More amenities than a 5 star resort with a full stacked breakfast. Maro spent half an hour explaining which places to see in Santorini with explicit instructions like a private guide. Helped us rent a car. The property has been woth the family for 3 generations and this place was kind of a wine storage place then. Most romantic place we have seen. Waiting to see the must talked about sunrise next morning ;)
We were amazed by photos before booking. After seeing we fell in love with this place. Host Maro is such a lovely lady. She helped us from picking us from port, advising on best tour route best suitable for our short stay. House is clean with best view. Sea is just fee steps away.
Views at night are mesmerising with moon reflections on sea water. Well lighted swimming pool.
Maro made sure we have all what we need in kitchen. Breakfast, fruits, water and lot more.
Santorini is beautiful. Must visit place.
This is an amazing villa! Very clean and comfortable.
Maro our host was amazing. She and her family went above and beyond to help make our stay memorable.
She helped us organise transfers, car hire, bookings, hairdressing, laundry and advised of places to eat and sights to see.
The villa has a magical view of the ocean and sunrise. It is peaceful and quiet which makes for a very relaxing holiday.
I can truely recommend this villa.
The villa has no theft insurance, security system and is located in a distant and dark area. Bad, bad!!
