Harmonious and breathtaking are just a few of the words that describe this private villa on Santorini. Comfort and art welcome you to your Greek villa with a private swimming pool. If you enjoy the feeling of being on top of the world with views of a village across the sea from your private candlelit terrace, look no further. You will find it hard to leave your villa, but can walk to the local town and be back in your own Greek rental home in no time!

It's a beautiful, well-equipped and maintained villa with stunning views.
The view, the interior and the really friendly and helpful owner.
The noisy and busy road made reading and relaxing by the pool difficult; there is a popular view point opposite the villa.
Probably wouldn't stay in Akrotiri again as it was a bit too quiet but obviousy good caldera views.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Akrotiri - yes could walk to a mini market and to a few restaurants.
Tips or Restaurants:
It's important to note that there is a small car included with the villa. If renters only need a little run-around then it's fine although for five of us it would have been too small. (Editor's Note: As of April 2015, the car rental is no longer included in the rate.) Also the basement accommodation is not as good as the rest of the house so really think it's best for no more than 6 people - it also only had four loungers so we had to buy a couple of cheap extra ones.
We were met at the airport and we then followed them to the villa in our rental car so no problem.
Check In Out:
Check in and out both really easy. The owner leaves a mobile with her number in it so you can contact her at any time.
The town of Akrotiri is just 1000 meters away and there you will find stores and restaurants. A walk of 15- 20 minutes will bring you to Akrotiri beach and the dive center. The ancient excavation site of Akrotiri is 3 km from the villa. It is one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The first habitation at the site dates from the Late Neolithic times and in the Middle and early Late Bronze Age. It developed into one of the main urban centers and ports of the Aegean. A large volcanic eruption covered Akrotiri, perserving the city’s buildings and contents for interested archeologists and tourists. For daytrips, visit Perissa, nine kilometers away, where you’ll find tavernas, nightlife and a very nice beach. Kamari is another great destination due to its beautiful beach which stretches all the way to Monolithos, nearly five kilometers away. Kamari’s beach is full of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops. Don’t miss the famous church of Panaghia Episkopi which was built in 1100.
