Great family accomodation in stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

Cavern House Anthea turned out to be the ideal base from which to explore the island. Extremely clean and well decorated, with everything you need for a family holiday, the house is also spacious and cool. Sarah was extremely efficient in dealing with our booking and any questions we had and the trip was made so easy by being met at the airport and then being greeted by Iro the Villa manager at the house. She was really excellent and was keen to make sure we had all the information we needed to enjoy the island.

Once settled in, the house offers options through the day; a great place to breakfast in the courtyard, cool rooms to retreat to during the heat of the day and a wonderful terrace and plunge pool to cool down in during the afternoon.

The house is in a a quiet location in Exa Gonia, wonderful to retreat to after the buzz of the busy towns such as Ioa and Fira. Sarah arranged car hire and this is essential if you want to explore the island or simply to do the supermarket run! All in all, I couldn't recommend Sarah and her team - and her house - more highly. You can book with confidence that you're in for a real treat. And lastly, we have to mention the food. It would be difficult to order a poor meal. The taverna close to the house is really excellent!

Excellent, traditional property in great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a great Easter break at Cavern House Anthea that was intended as 7 days but got extended to 10 due to Greek industrial action. This extended break enabled us to enjoy more of what Santorini has to offer. :-)

The property is very well equipped and a traditional cavern house in a very nice traditional village. The views are stunning and there is plenty to do in the location and further afield. We especially enjoyed sitting out on the top terrace in the warm sunshine, relaxing with a nice glass of the excellent Santorini wine.

The house is a short 10 minute uphill walk to the traditional village of Pyrgos where there are a number of tavernas and a couple of small supermarkets. Down from the property are a another number of tavernas. Our top recommendations are Cava Alta (Pyrgos) and Anemoloos (Meze, in Exagonia). The later one is only open a few days a week but was the best meal by far all the time we stayed in Santorini.

The house is located near to some great wineries - Estate Argyros was our personal favorite at the bottom of the hill. Very friendly people and fabulous wine. The Donkey Brewery is also in the same location and well worth visiting to pick up some supplies.

There are plenty of places to visit and nothing too far away as Santorini is compact island. The location of the property is outside the traffic hot spots and centrally located, so very convenient for trips out.

Finally, the service and help provided by Sarah and Kimberley really made for a great relaxing trip. Nothing was too much trouble, especially when we got delayed for a number of days and had to extend our stay.

Many thanks for all your help and recommendations in making this a very memorable holiday. We will certainly return and recommend to others.

A gem!

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky to find Anthea - Kimberly was an amazing host and we loved being in the beautiful village of Exo Gonia, away from the more touristy parts of the island. It is in a lovely location with a stunning view and the villa itself is charming and spacious. We also fell in love with the three cats who live nearby - they were so gentle and affectionate, they were the icing on the cake to a perfect stay.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish our holiday on Santorini in Cavern House Anthea was amazing. Sarah was brilliant and could not have been more helpful before and after the holiday and Kimberley was brilliant whilst we were there. Sarah arranged a hire car for us to meet us at the airport and reserved us a table at the local taverna for our first night. Kimberely met us at the airport with the hire car company and then we followed her to the villa where she showed us around and explained everything to us, there is also a very handy book in the villa full of handy tips of what to do, where to go and where to eat. The villa is absolutely stunning with a picture perfect view, it was also stocked up with items to help get us started on our first day (bread, butter, cheese, ham, fruit, milk, water, beer and wine, what more could you ask for). We absolutely fell in love with the place and the rooftop terrace is perfect for lounging around in the sun topping up that tan. We also fell in love with the 2 comical black cats that roam around near the villa and loved their fuss and we even got the gorgeous ginger cat to have a fuss with us by the end of the holiday as he was a bit wary of us at first......we ended up calling them Huey, Duey & Lewis and would have loved to bring all 3 back home with us. Santorini is just gorgeous and the sunset just as every bit breathtaking as you can imagine. We spent a good 3 days exploring the beautiful island and the rest just relaxing on the rooftop terrace......heaven :). Thank you again to Sarah and Kimberley for everything, we had the most fab holiday :).

Amazing traditional caver house

  • 5 of 5

It was a great family vacation spot. It is centrally located on the island and is in a quiet town away from the busy tourist areas but only a short drive to anywhere on the island. Kimberley was there to meet us at the airport upon our arrival and take us to the house. We really appreciated that there was some food and drinks stocked up in the frig for us on our arrival. Many thanks for that. Kimberley was also very helpful in arranging 5 ATV rentals on short notice for us. (Great way to go around the the island - we had so much fun doing that). We loved the roof terrace with the plunge pool - the 6 of us easily fit in. A terrific view of Kamari from the terrace. Big kitchen. The house was more spacious then we thought it would be and clean. They had great restaurant suggestions - all of the ones we tried had very good food and reasonably price. We would highly recommend this cavern house to stay at.

Many thanks Sarah for all your help.
