Tucked away on a hillside in beautiful Imerovigli, far away from the tourist crowds, Villa Estelle offers contemporary clean and compact living with sensational views. Ideal for families and small groups, this lovely home from home can also host intimate weddings and social occasions (event fee applies). Fill your lungs with fresh ozone as you gaze across the deep blue of the Aegean Sea to the mysterious Santorini volcano and magical island of Thirasia. A villa manager and concierge will make sure your vacation lives up to your dreams and a daily housekeeper will keep everything neat and tidy.
There is not a sharp angle within curvaceous Villa Estelle. The building - and even one of the nightstands - has been crafted from snow-white stone and the kitchen fits snugly into a rounded alcove. Its splendid waterfront location is mirrored by the softly lit heated plunge pool and you can enjoy fabulous views from the roof garden, day or evening. Lavender sunsets are a Santorini spectacle and an alfresco poolside dining table enhanced by candles means you can gather with friends or family and talk long into the night.
Indoors, a homely living room opens out onto the sun terrace. Cushion-stacked sofas invite you to put your feet up and enjoy all the entertainments on offer. Pick a movie from the collection and play it on your DVD player or VCR. Theres a satellite TV and games console, as well as a CD player and iPod dock for your favorite tunes. Staying connected with the outside world is also an option with a laptop and Wi-Fi. Prepare yourself a fresh juice or strong coffee in the compact kitchen and enjoy it from your lounger as you soak up the morning sun. Later, you might fancy cooking up a feast on the gas grill.
Drowsy from all the sea air and sunshine, youll be looking forward to a sound nights sleep and Villa Estelles three air-conditioned king-size bedrooms can offer just that. All the home comforts are here, from LCD TVs and the finest linen to modern en-suite bathrooms with showers. There are also two sofa beds, ideal for teens and one of the rooms boasts a writing desk, perfect for penning postcards home.
If you feel like exploring the area, a five minute walk will take you to a church, restaurant and grocery store in the nearby town. Its a 15 minute drive to the airport and nearest beach.

The six of us really enjoyed the location and beauty of the surroundings of Villa Estelle. The bed was really comfortable and I loved sinking into it at the end of a long day of travel but two of the rooms were uncomfortably small with the bed taking up almost the whole room and not nearly enough space to unpack and then absolutely nowhere to put your luggage. We were grateful for the kitchen area so that we could have some provisions on hand for morning coffee and breakfast, but we had originally thought we might make a dinner here and that would have been ridiculous with the postage stamp of space and then it being up on a raised platform which we all at one point or another tripped on. The upper level view was absolutely amazing and we enjoyed that area thoroughly, however the lower level patio with plunge pool wasn't nearly as great. It was almost always in the shade and windy/cool and the plunge pool isn't heated and was totally freezing temperature so no one used it.
We stayed at Villa Estelle and had a wonderful experience. The view is amazing - - probably better than staying in Oia since this villa appears to be at the highest point on the island. All furnishings are well-maintained, and there is an incredible maid service daily. Super easy to walk to many restaurants. It was very comfortable for me and my two teenage kids - - plus it was very safe. The kids could walk around as they want on several trails and steps. We took a hike to the Skaros Castle Ruins directly in front of the villa. Do that in the early hours before it gets hot. Not crowded at all and fascinating/beautiful.
Villa Estelle is in the lovely area of Imerovigli away from the tourist crowds of Fira and Oia but with the same lovely view. It is a good choice if you are not planning to cook much (the kitchen is tiny) but want somewhere to enjoy the view. Living is very compact - the cupboards in the rooms are barely enough for one person's clothes and we kept tripping over the other suitcase which we needed to leave open on the floor. A bit small for 6 people.
1. Villa personelle were welcoming and helpful.
2. Villa was beautiful, clean, and great location.
3. All questions were answered quickly and correspondance was easy.
Santorini is as lovely as all the photos you see. The food was great, the villa within walking distance of lots of restaurants. The wine was great too. Skaros was a good place to hike, and lovely to look at from the roof top patio.
Beauticul Argean sea view apartment, laid out for comfort and ease with all the conveniences of a modern home. WiFi, kitchenette with espresso maker and microwave and cooking range and large fridge. Simple comfortable furniture and well functioning bathroom and shower facilities. The small downsides: no doors in the bathrooms, so if you are using all the rooms, bathroom breaks need to be timed to be discrete! The interior of the apartment is stepped in various places-careful not to trip. there is no dishwasher - however, the daily maid service was excellent and dishes left in the sink were always taken care of and put away. The location of the flat requires a car for access to either end of the island and the main towns, but a small car rental is not expensive (do rent a "small" car BTW - narrow streets and lots of motorcycles). It was often hard to park outside the flat because of the adjacent hotel, but we always found somewhere. Within walking distance is a convenience store.
