The villa is in the traditional quiet village of Emporio at the south part of the beautiful Santorini and it is situated near the castle of the village.
The property is in a traditional Cycladic style with a beautiful sun terrace and a private pool. It has two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, living-room, a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances plus two extra cave rooms. It includes all bedding and towels, plasma TV, DVD, WiFi, washing machine etc. The villa can accommodate 6-8 guests.
6 of us girls stayed at this property for 5 nights. Located near Emporio Square, a short however hilly walk to the villa (however being 6 fit girls, we managed). We were greeted by the housekeeper who let us in. The house was beautifully maintained as the pictures advertised. A stunning rooftop to hang out and enjoy the gorgeous views of Santorini. Each bedroom was equipped with towels and the bathroom was also supplied with soap/shampoo/hairdryer. The kitchen too is equipped with all necessary utensils and also basic seasoning if you plan on cooking. We enjoyed making the famous greek salad!! There was two bottles of wine kept in the fridge upon arrival which was generous gesture :) 20 minutes by taxi to the main town of Thira, 10 minutes to Perissa (lovely black sands beach). Thank you Sotoris for a pleasurable stay at your lovely home, we had an amazing time on what is such an incredible island!!!
This lovely villa made the perfect base for exploring Santorini. Most of all I loved sitting on the roof terrace in the evening watching the world go by - the half-light around sunset, fantastic views out to sea, windmills on the horizon, the Castelli bell tower, the buzzing vehicles on the Emporio road below as they make their way between sunsets and clubs. We all (the children especially) loved the pool! Always clean, a great way to cool off after the walk back up to the house, not big but surprisingly deep. Emporio is only a short drive away from the beaches at Perivolos, Fira in 15 mins, Oia in 30+-. The villa itself is situated up in the old town - a 5 minute walk from the small, modern town centre, where you will find an excellent bakery, 2 well-stocked supermarkets, medical centre and a couple of local bars and restaurants. The house was cool, clean and true to the pictures - traditional styling, a well-equipped kitchen, a great shower/bathroom. There are two double bedrooms, a small cave bedroom downstairs (basic furnishing) and a separate, smart cave suite accessed externally (we did not use this as we didn't need to - but do make sure you ask if you are a larger group). Despite being in the old part of town, where houses are built on top of each other, it is reasonably private (though I did worry the children might wake our neighbours with their early morning swim!).
Sotiris responded promptly by email and was in touch via the family who looked after maintenance and cleaning (the house was cleaned meticulously, daily). On our arrival in Emporio, quite late in the evening, we phoned Vasilly who met us and showed us the way up through winding alleys (we were a bit worried that this way of finding our villa would not work out, but it was fine).
If you are of limited mobility, this is probably not the spot for you - walking back up to the villa, especially in the heat of the day, is strenuous. However, its well worth it for the view, and for the character of the old town you get the privilege of living in. You can wander the alleys and in a couple of minutes you are at the Goulas, or in the other direction the beautiful Castelli (on the way you will find a fantastic tiny roof-top bar for a cool beer before sunset!) - I wish I had had more time to wander these streets; with all the rest of the island to visit too, we ran out of time! Great villa and location combining convenience, atmosphere and history - Thank you Sotiris!
The place is located it a very quiet area , pool is very nice as well, I think I enjoyed it the most about the property as it was hot while we were there and pool was always clean,cool, and refreshing . The host went above and beyond to make sure our stay was relaxing and helped us make several travel arrangements and let us stay a extended period of time free of charge that helped with our 3:35am flight to Barcalona , I would recommend this villa while in Santorini.

En famille avec 4 petits enfants, nous avons passé des vacances magnifiques à Santorin grâce à Sotiris, sa maison, son équipe et ses bons conseils.
Emporio est une ville agréable et calme, moins de touristes.
La maison n'est pas atteignable en voiture ou moto, mais le parking n'est pas trop loin - sauf le jour où il faut transporter les bouteilles d'eau :-) (nous conseillons de se garer près du vieux kastell plutôt que sur la place du village).
La maison avait une taille parfaite pour une famille de 6 personnes et la piscine était très appréciée par les enfants, et les parents.
L'équipe de Sotiris, Vassili et sa famille, est très discrète et s'occupe de vous parfaitement dès qu'il y a un petit souci, pour le nettoyage, etc. ... ne pas devoir s'occuper du nettoyage en vacances, c'est vraiment pas mal :-)
Sotiris, en tant que jeune papa, nous a trouvé une babysiteuse, afin que nous puissions profiter d'une soirée en amoureux.
Il ne faut surtout pas hésiter à demander des conseils (excursions, restos, ...) à Sotiris. Il nous a trouvé toute une série de bons plans.
Nous avions peur de déranger les voisins (4 enfants entre 2 et 8 ans, cela peut faire du bruit), mais ceux-ci étaient très sympas. Le voisin (grec) m'a même emmené au marché afin de dénicher les bons produits locaux aux meilleurs prix.
Santorin est et reste une île magnifique!
Il était dur de repartir après 2 semaines, les enfants demandent quand nous retournerons à Santorin.
Location à conseiller!
La villa était superbe et avons appréciés sont plus avec la piscine. Indispensable pour les enfants:). Sotoris avait organisé une navette pour venir nous chercher au port c'était très appréciable. Le village d'Emporio est tout mignon avec se labyrinthe de petites ruelles. Nous sommes restés 6 jours et avons loué une voiture les 4 derniers jours indispensable a Emporio. Pour éviter les chaleurs visitions les environs après la sieste des enfants. Santorin est une très belle îles comme sur les cartes postales ;).
Sono stata in questa splendida casa per le vacanze con la mia famiglia. Il paesino (Emporio) è un po' defilato ma permette di vedere una realtà un po' meno turistica e più vera, è comunque in ottima posizione sia per il mare che per le visite all'isola. La casa è esattamente quella che si può vedere nelle foto, particolarmente curata, pulita e comoda. Durante il periodo di soggiorno sono venuti spessissimo a pulire la piscina, per il cambio della biancheria e per veloci pulizie, tutti comunque molto discreti e gentili. Il proprietario è stato più che disponibile, ci ha sempre risposto (anche al telefono), ci ha aiutati per l'affitto della macchina e delle escursioni. Santorini è bellissima e la nostra vacanza è stata davvero splendida anche grazie a questa meravigliosa casa.
