Wow just Wow

  • 5 of 5

What can I say that hasn't been said already!

The owners have obviously spent a great deal of care and attention ensuring the winery has been restored to amazing detail and ensuring that everything is there to make your holiday the best it can be.

We were a family of 9 and not once were we treading each other's toes, there are lots of areas you can escape to if you need, however for us the amazing pool was the centre of fun you want on a holiday.

There is so much to do and see at Santorini, for us the highlights were an amazing catamaran trip which the villa manager Iro sorted for us. This was a half day trip all food and proper beer and wine included and the boat to ourselves.

I would also recommend the walk from Fira to Oia, make sure you wear sensible shoes, go early in the day, take water and a camera the views are absolutely stunning.

In terms of eating the best taverna we went to which is walking distance from the Winery was Marmita, the service was amazing with free Raki and most importantly the food was the best we had certainly I would recommend the moussaka.

Lastly I have to say the local bakery is to die for, we walked there every morning for Croissant and pain au chocolate and then ice cream in the afternoon, what a life!

I very rarely give 5 stars but if I could I would award 6

Stunning and spacious Villa. A must stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this villa (June 2018), and the pictures don’t do it justice. It is extremely spacious and beautiful. A lot bigger than expected. The village it is located in is also stunning, very friendly and quiet. The local bakery is a 2 min walk away and has everything you need. Even Hot cooked meals. We hired a Car but the Taxis are cheap and arrive quickly. We hired buggy’s which were much better and enhanced the experience whilst exploring the island.

The Villa manager Panos was extremely helpful and friendly from before the start of holiday right to the finish. He organised everything we needed throughout the duration of our stay.

Sarah the Villa owner was very helpful and patient with all the usual sporadic pre-holiday questions.

We had an amazing stay and can’t recommend this villa enough for anyone looking to holiday in Santorini. It was so much more than we expected.

Many Thanks!

P.s. The Catamaran cruise and para-sailing is a must!

Perfect Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

What a find! This leap of faith more than paid off. Idyllic, relaxing and beautifully restored by the present owners with an eye for detail and historic preservation. Easy to get to all the island has to offer with fantastic advice from the villa manager on hidden gems. Can't recommend this diamond enough. Loved it and will definitely be back sooner rather than later.

Finery at the Winery

  • 5 of 5

What a place! Superbly refurbished, with all the creature comforts. Very tidy, and centrally located with easy access to the whole island. Large yet cosy, and quiet. Super staff/management.

Awesome base to explore an authentic Greek island

  • 5 of 5

It was the most stunning Villa I've ever stayed in, we absolutely loved it. The house obviously sleeps more then the two of us, so it was a bit spacious, but that made it all the more luxurious! We felt spoiled and pampered! One week was almost not enough time to try out all the different seating areas- terraces and little nesting corners in and around the house. If you do happen to stay there with as many people as beds you can still very easily find quiet time spread out over the different levels. The swimming pool with the "shaded throne" is devine ❤️ This side of the island feels quite authentic and unspoiled with loads of nice walks in the area. But you can also very easily get to the more bustling tourist areas, wether via a long walk or the easy bus connection. Panos - the house manager- was always available for questions or help with organising and much fun to chat to! Enough choices of restaurants and bars on walking distance! We will most definitely try to get back here at some point!

Characterful, spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of room for an extended family of 11 (including 5 children). Pool isn't very big and a parasol would be handy for having 2 babies with us but the villa is well equipped and Panos (the villa manager) couldn't have been more helpful in arranging transport, a sunset cruise and bringing us a bottle of champagne after we got married.
