|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Resting majestically on a hillside in Imerovigli, this sugar-frosted villa commands dramatic volcano and caldera views from its verandas and pool terrace. This intimate, securely gated vacation home is ideal for romantic honeymooners who want to retreat from the world and focus exclusively on each other. Small weddings and social events can also be hosted here for up to 16 guests. Getting here is easy a rental car with manual transmission is provided and theres plenty of parking.
Its easy to see how The Architects Villa got its name. Sculpted from whitewashed stone, its igloo-shaped features and white dcor are offset by bold splashes of lemon and lime throughout. A contoured turquoise infinity pool provides a welcoming respite from the hot Greek sun and a soak in the starlit outdoor hot tub is just the perfect way to end the day. Indoors, youll find a host of entertainment options, with a plasma satellite TV and DVD player, a CD player and iPod dock. Pour yourself a drink from the mini-bar or rustle up a fresh juice in the citrus-fresh kitchen and snuggle on the sofa while you listen to your favorite playlist.
Salute the sun each morning with an espresso on the poolside terrace. Breakfast is provided daily and for an extra cost you can hire a private chef, butler, security guard and driver. Enjoy your meals at the dining table in the living area or the kitchen, or you could cook up a storm on the outdoor barbecue. Later, let your cares drop away off the edge of the pool as you sip chilled champagne by the soft light of colorful candles.
All that salt-laden air is bound to make you sleepy and there are three very comfortable air-conditioned bedrooms ready to sweep you away to dreamland, lulled by the sound of the waves on the shore below. Each room is simply and restfully styled so theres nothing to distract you from a good nights sleep, and the traditional shutters will block out the Santorini sun until youre ready to awaken. Mosaic tiled bathrooms (one en-suite) with walk-in showers and a tub add an extra touch of luxury.
Round trip transfers are included with your accommodation and activities and excursions can be arranged for an extra fee. If you feel like exploring the area, theres a bus stop nearby and within 10 minutes you can be on the beach, shopping for groceries or discovering Greek restaurants in the nearest town.

The location of the villa is excellent; 1/2 way between Oia and Imerovigli. The hire car (part of package) was particularly useful, and Christos, who looked after in our stay, could not have been more helpful providing lifts, advice on restaurants, and even helping when an iPhone ended up in water!
We had a wonderful five-night stay at the Architect's Villa on Santorini in early June 2016. The villa has a spectacular view of the caldera from the patio/pool area. The villa, itself, is beautiful and comfortable. Our villa caretaker, Kris, was attentive to every need and very helpful in giving advice about travel around the island. The breakfasts he served poolside were excellent, as well. We would highly recommend this villa.
Architects Villa was fantastic. The villa is in a very private area of Santorini but convenient to Fira and Oia. The views of the Caldara are excellent from the villa and outdoor area. The villa was 5 star and there are many amenities such as airport transfers, cooked to order breakfast, a car, cell phone, fully stocked refrigerator, pool, hot tub, daily housekeeping etc. The onsite manager was extremely helpful, providing directions, dinner reservations, and making sure every aspect of the villa and our visit was perfect. I would highly recommend this property and will stay here again.
Superb experience. The villa views are breathtaking
Everything lived up to expectations. Perhaps some of the rooms were a bit smaller than expected. I suppose that's normal as villa pictures are usually taken with a wide angle lens.
We did not see a single cloud the entire time we were there! Lower scores below on Kelly Pearson are only because I don't remember ever dealing with her. Nothing particularly wrong, just more irrelevant. For our purposes the villa was excellent as the white with bright accents are very photogenic.
