Best of the Best ! !

  • 5 of 5

We have spent our summer holidays of this year visiting the most famous and beautiful Greek Cycladic Islands on the blue waters of the Aegean Sea

On the top of them Santorini : a fantastic volcanic island, maid by...the Greek Gods !

We had next the privilege to Rent a gorgeous Villa, a Balcony upon the Caldera's Rim with tremendous View from every place you ever choose to stay; inside the or outside.

Inside, the spacious House offers spacious and very comfortable Bedrooms and Living-rooms. It is a very tastefully decorated traditional Villa, has all the amenities you ever need, everything completely functioning, including it's Wi-Fi.

Outside, a tremendous Veranda and a green Garden. No swimming Pool ( a question of ecological principles on behalf of the Owner for Calderas beauty, says the young old man, the Housekeeper.....).

The whole Property completely to our privacy: secluded and very quite.

To meet the hussle or anything you desire to find, just close and lock the Property Entrance and keep walking 150 meters to be in the middle of the charming center of Firostefani and it's cosmopolitan ambiance.

All of us thank the owner and very much we thank the Housekeeper, a most friendly


We highly recommend everything to everyone

Magic sunset and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

A lovely week, the house was really comfortable and gave us a lot of privacy, silence and the best view of Santorini! From the amazing terrace we could see the volcano and other islands nearby, unforgettable under the iridescent sunset light

Best house in Santorini!!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us spent a week in August in this beautiful home with the best view of the Caldera. An incredibile experience in this traditional Santorinian Villa, half built into the cliff and half protruding. We had amazing, breathtaking views, enjoyed the spacious terraces and had drinks on the hanging garden balcony. Every morning stepping out on the terrace was simply glorious. The villa was spotless, comfortable and nicely decorated. We had a lot of privacy. I highly recommend staying here. The whole experience was unforgettable.

Vista meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

Innanzitutto la vista, una delle più belle e romantiche di Santorini. Casa di charme a picco sulla Caldera, scavata nella roccia, comoda e funzionale.

Great location very nice owners

  • 4 of 5

The location was very close to everything. The accommodations were nice , however I felt for the money the furniture, and bedding was clean but old and not very comfortable.

Incredible patio, but again some upgraded loungers and outdoor sofas would make the place more comfortable.

Blue white blue

  • 5 of 5

The experience of Santorini white light against the blue of the see below and the blue of the sky surrounding the terraces is hard to describe - this place has a magical effect and the house and its different levels all facing onto this amazing light makes it hard to leave.

Every area of the accommodation is so comfortable and has the feeling of having been superbly well lived in by its gracious owners that it is a privilege to stay there. Having been there for the second time we will most certainly be back.
