Why chantal roger chose Greece

It is just MAGICAL (no words to describe it ... one must live it !)

What makes this villa unique

Pristine and breathtaking view !

Privacy (being on the balcony and feeling alone in the world even with so many people visiting the island each year)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Nov 17, 2015 for a stay in Aug 2015

I've spent a few months trying to figure out how to accurately capture the ways in which our stay at Seahorse will stay with me forever. Perhaps it was Athena's sundried tomatoes, or better yet her fried tomato balls that will take center stage when I'm thinking back on the best memories of my life. Maybe it will be Xenofon's stories about jazz, or New York, or Mumbai. Maybe it was the Greek yogurt they made for us from scratch every morning. Maybe it was be watching how much they love each other and how much they love food, and how that in and of itself made every bite of their incredible cooking simply transcendental. Maybe it was the firework show, gastronomy dinner, or world-class professional photographer (Ellegeliki, who was amazing!) that Chantal helped us plan at a very low cost. Maybe it was getting engaged to my partner under the Grecian sun on the cliffs at Seahorse that colors my memories. It's hard to say now. What I do know is that having the incredible fortune of having spent time at Seahorse wasn't just a vacation. It was a meditation on life. It was a reminder of the things that are important. It was an affirmation that in the most seemingly remote corners of the world, there are loving, warm, kind, worldly, intelligent, generous people like Chantal and her staff. It took about two days into our week to absolutely fall in love with Santorini, and it will take a lifetime to forget. Thank you again for everything, Chantal! We will be back!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fantastic; the rooms were all great; even the pictures don't do the view justice; and the location within Santorini was perfect (there's enough going on just steps from the villa, but at the same time you have privacy in that people can't see down to the outdoor space, you never hear any noise, etc. - i honestly thought it was better situated on the island than Oia). And Chantal was superb - she helped with transport, restaurant reservations, directions, groceries... everything! Would definitely go back and recommend to friends / family. We were a group of 8 adults and didn't feel remotely cramped. I wouldn't bring young kids there given the large number of steep stairs, it's impossible to child-proof, and you're basically living on the side of a fairly steep mountain... so glad we left the kids at home!

Best Vacation!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have just been to Chantal's property and could not rave more about the experience. I had 5 girls in this home and could not be more impressed. Great airport transfer is set up for you from the get go... Thomas was great giving us an overview of the island on the way to meet Chantal. From Firostefani, you are greeted not only by sweet, informative Chantal, but also by our porter. You don't carry a bag down to the house which is great.

Your first impression is of course Magical. The setting is amazing! This is what you are expecting of any place on this side of the island but what you are amazed by is the location and level of service.

Service: Number 1 - at this location expect great food! Of the 10 days in Athens and Santorini the best food we had was at the house. Athena and Xeno prepared our best meals. We were silly and only employed them for our first and last dinners on the island. Of course we enjoyed every breakfast here (included in the price) but I wish we had planned on multiple dinners at the home (a small additional fee- but less than you would expect). Also these two do a cooking class.

I did not know about this as we booked dinners before we knew about the cooking class. After we had been there, we definitely felt that we had missed out by not booking them for a cooking class. Xeno and Athena made our trip - as amazing as the house was.... these two made it even better. Xeno and Athena are an amazing couple that also double as great chefs and take care of you're every whim while making it look as if they are not thinking about it at all.

Firostefani is a ten minute walk to Fira and a central place to the whole island. This is where you want to be! I would recommend this as a place to any stranger but more importantly, to any friend I have. I could not have been happier at this home for 1-30 days. It is a paradise location and the level of service is on par with the view- which is INCREDIBLE!

My other question on the way here was where to stay. Fira? Firsatefani? or Oia? I found Firastefani to be perfect. You could be out of the Fira cruise ship traffic. We could still make it it in early in the morning or late at night - about a ten minute walk from the house, but lots of steps from firostefani. But if you see four cruise ships in... you know to try out another city or stay at home away from the mess. As far as Oia... it is a little bit up scale as being out of the way... so on the flip side, would always choose Seahorse!

Best place & Service in Santorini

  • 5 of 5

This villa is GORGEOUS and you feel like you are secluded from all of the cruise ship tourism of Santorini, but yet a short walk away if you want to venture out. Christina and Themis were the most amazing hosts and managers, going above and beyond for us. We had our wedding here and rented the villa for all our guests for about a week. The breakfasts, meals on the veranda, pool and coordination of onsite catering, and vendors was above and beyond the call of duty. Not only that but Themis and Christina are an absolute joy and became part of our party! We all want to go back for reunions to roast more chickens on the spit, cooking classes and poolside wine.

My only feedback for improvement is that the lower bedrooms closer to the water had some mosquitos and all the beds are really firm and not comfortable, although the epic views make you quickly forget about your stiff back.

Many thanks to Seahorse Villa and especially Themis and Christina for making our wedding an amazing experience!

By far our favorite family vacation - ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

Seahorse Villa is located in the most convenient spot on the island of Santorini. Ten minutes to Thira and ten minutes to Imeriovigli. The view is exquisite!!! The beds are a bit firm, but that is the only downside to our visit. Everything else was perfect. Christina, the villa manager, will be a lifetime friend to my family. Anna and Tonia kept the villa, including the pool, spotless and very comfortable. After a day of sightseeing, coming "home" to the villa was the best part of the day. There were 9 of us, and we all had plenty of space to relax and find some quiet time. Everyone in our family agreed that this was the best vacation ever - a once in a lifetime.

Perfection

  • 5 of 5

The property was magnificent. It was perfectly located in Firostefani, easy to walk to the adjacent towns. The accommodations were stunning. The views of the Caldera were the best on the island. The service from Themis and Cristina the property managers was beyond expectations. The description of the property was accurate. I would highly recommend this property to friends and relatives and I hope to return soon.
