RUSTIC PERFECTION

  • 5 out of 5
The rustic yet comfortable nature of the converted winery take you back in time. The fact that the sleeping quarters extend into the hillside makes for the best possible ‘air conditioning’ and wonderful sleeping conditions. The rooftop sitting area is wonderful with shaded and sunning areas, and catches a comfortable breeze. It is also the location of the barbeque grill and creates a wonderful atmosphere for dinning or just enjoying a refreshing Ouzo or a glass of wine from the neighbor’s private stock. Jon arranged a fantastic party one night and cooked countless souvlakis for everyone. Jon shows a special dedication to ensuring that your stay is as fantastic as possible, whether that means personal tours or staying out of sight.
The Perrisa beach, which is the longest beach, is just a short drive away with clear water, tavernas and lively beach bars. We had many fantastic meals at places that Jon recommended.
I look forward to coming back and would recommend this place to everyone.

WONDERFUL RUSTIC RETREAT

  • 5 out of 5
On arrival at this winery we were struck by just how well the property had been converted with great attention to detail. The courtyard was a stunning place to eat outside in the evening and the views from the roof terrace day or night were simply wonderful. There is so much to see and do on Santorini and the winery is in the best position for this. Nothing is too far away, yet the privacy the winery affords its visitors means that you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of popular Thira and breathtaking Oia yet return to the winery to relax and unwind.

Jon was the perfect host and without his guidance I would have to say we would have never discovered the best places to eat. Nor would we have seen some of the more dramatic beach landscapes. Nothing was too much trouble. He is a great bloke who simply wishes to share the riches that are on the beautiful island of Santorini.

We hope to return next year.



There is so much to see and do

THE WINERY

  • 5 out of 5
The place was great! It has a lovely feel to it and had everything you need… which at a cut price included a car WHICH WAS ESSENTIAL. The Villa is a tad removed but that was what was so nice about it… BBQ’s on the roof terrace on the warm evening with food bought from the local shops… no one around you... need I say more. The beach was but a 5/10 minute drive and was one of the nicer ones we visited in Santorini… The Villa couldn’t have been decorated any better with the owner taking real pride in the place which was evident from his brillient art work on the walls. Which brings me on to the best part about the place and that it the owner himself! Jon couldn’t have been more acomidating and helpful… but that does not mean to the point he was involved in your holiday… he simply said if you need anything I am here to help and he really was. I don’t offten make the effort to recommend places but I came back compelled to do so as I had such a lovely stay. Thank you Jon!

JUST PERFECT

  • 5 out of 5
Just the most amazing place to stay with a truly wonderful host. We loved the old winery, it is spacious inside with masses of charm. The roof terrace area is beautiful with lovely views and ideal for cooking and relaxing in the evenings. Jon is informative and helpful and extremely good company, our children also adored him. We had a wonderful holiday really enjoying chilling out on Santorini after a few days in Athens. Definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

JON IS BEST

  • 5 out of 5
We were 2 parents, 1 grandma, 2 eleven year olds. Stayed one week.
The host, Jon, an artist (painter) and former business man, is very friendly and forthcoming. He picked us up at the airport and arranged a rental car from a befriended company and passed onto us a special rate which was 30 Euro per day plus 7 Euro full insurance per day optionally.

The rooms are great and it is a small adventure for city people. Not everyone is staying in a former winery every day.

Jon the host, knows his island very well. He recommended us very good and price worthy restaurants in Perissa and Emporeio and a very good boat trip for 22 Euro per person which covers almost all you need to see in the Caldera area, like vulcano, hot springs, a small neighboring island and Fira.

On the last evening Jon made great supper for us and the kids (hamburgers, souvlaki, cheese and other greece dishes). Jon lives in Greek for already 35+ years and speaks the local language.

The rooms are great, TV and home surround system is great, but we did not use it much. Two showers and toilets available, a nice kitchen with large fridge. All in all with much love for details and very perfect matching of new and old things. We just loved it. His cat is lovely and joined us whenever we did some grilling on the roof top.

We can without doubt recommend the place and especially the host.

As our reviewer of Osnabrück said it, yes, Jon was described as a very good host and it made them suspicious, but well it is true, we confirm it.

One small downside was though, that the outside room was a bit warm in the night and the fan provided did help. But it was still very warm in that bedroom. But that may be an individual issue, others might find it not too warm.

EIN WUNDERSCHÖNER ORT AUF EINER WUNDERBAREN INSEL

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben uns in der Winery sehr wohl gefühlt- sie ist wunderschön, mitten in einem kleinen, noch sehr ursprünglichen Ort, Emporeio, wo morgens und Abends Esel durchgetrieben werden, mit denen dort noch gearbeitet wird. Es ist sehr wenig touristisch in dem Dörfchen, und man ist schnell in dem Dorf, aber auch schnell auf einem schönen Weg in den Berg mit baumhohen Kakteen, wildem Thymian, Feigenbäumen...
Das Haus außergewöhnlich, sehr schön, künstlerisch, sauber und mit allem nötigen eingerichtet. Im Haus selbst ist es sehr hellhörig, ein kleiner Nachteil- zwischen den beiden Schlafräumen, beide offen (einer ist die offene Empore) kann man sich fast durch Flüstern verständigen. Der dritte Schlafraum ist über den kleinen Hof, aber ebenfalls in Hörkontakt zum Haupthaus.
Es gibt einige Terrassen, so dass man meistens einen Schattenplatz finden kann. Allerdings gibt es auch etwas waghalsige, steile Treppen im Haus und auch draußen, so dass sehr kleine Kinder oder Gehbehinderte dort Probleme haben würden.
Überall hier werden Lobeshymnen auf Jon gesungen, was mich erst etwas skeptisch gemacht hat. Aber all das ist wahr- er ist mehr ein Gastgeber als ein Vermieter, sehr warmherzig, sehr offen für alles und voller liebevoller Gesten- hat an einem Morgen Frühstück, frisches Brot und Croissants vor die Tür gelegt, zum Empfang am Anreisetag hatte er Brot, Obst, Wein, Wasser und einige Leckereien für uns eingekauft- als Geschenk. Er ist unglaublich hilfsbereit. Er wohnt im Vorderhaus, aber er mischt sich nicht ein- ist aber dabei, wenn er gebraucht wird oder wenn man jemanden möchte, mit dem man ein Glas Wein trinken will.
Ein Auto ist schon nötig, aber das ist wohl auf ganz Santorini so. An guten, bewirtschafteten Stränden ist man mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten- jetzt im Juni waren die Sonnenschirme und Liegen noch kostenlos, wenn man in der Strandbar etwas trinkt oder isst- das mag allerdings in der Hauptsaison anders sein.Das Auto sollte klein sein, die Sträßchen im Dorf sind sehr eng!
Handtücher für den Strand und zum Wechseln gibt es reichlich, eine Waschmaschine kann man auch nutzen und sogar der DVD Player funktioniert gut- man kann also auch mal nen Film gucken- sollte man dann aber mitbringen.
Wir waren dort sehr glücklich an einem Ort, wo die Uhren langsamer zu gehen scheinen und die Luft erfüllt ist vom Duft wilder Kräuter- und manchmal von Eselsdung...;)
Thank you Jon, it was a wonderfull stay in your lovely house and we are sure, that we´ll come bac
