About the property

Sumptuous mansion with private garden, pool and extensive terraces, sleeping 6

This luxury villa has been meticulously refurbished by its architect owner to create a minimalist and contemporary home whilst maintaining the elements and spirit of its original architecture. The house is characterized by the soft Aegean light pouring in through its numerous French doors and large bay windows allowing sea views from almost all rooms. The materials, furnishings and appliances of the house have been carefully chosen and designed. The core of the villa is composed by the spacious and stylish living and dining room area. The living room with its imposing cross-vaulted ceiling has been furnished in a sleek and modern manner in order to create absolute comfort whereas the focus of the dining room is the unique and seemingly endless oak table equally suited to dining, leisure and work. The modern kitchen combines clean lines with maximum functionality. It has views both to the garden and the sea and is connected to the airy breakfast lounge with access to the courtyard.

The garden: The south facing garden is an oasis in its own right with olive and bougainvillea trees encircling the inviting swimming pool. This space provides ample opportunities for both relaxing by the pool and entertaining by the generous and sun-sheltered garden table.

The terraces: From the garden, stone steps lead to the mansion’s roof terraces offering unparalleled 360 degree views of the island and the surrounding Cycladic archipelago. At sunset, the terrace lounge area provides an ideal setting for the aperitivo hour - before hitting the local night scene.

Beautiful Villa, idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Johan’s beautiful villa from 18th-25th Aug 2018.

The villa was stunning and in a perfect setting. If you walk out the villa and turn right you are only a few steps away from breathtaking views.

Johan and his team were so helpful and we felt very welcome.

I would highly recommend the villa and the location to anyone visiting Santorini!

The villa was all we hoped for and more. We were over for our daughters wedding and Johan could not have been more helpful and patient with my numerous e- mails before our visit! Eleni the housekeeper was also wonderful. The villa is stunning and beautifully equipped, I do not understand some of the negative review comments about the bathrooms they were absolutely fine. We did not want to leave either the villa or Santorini. We would not hesitate to recommend it we had a wonderful week.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Can’t say enough good things about this property. Courtyard with pool was the perfect place to relax. House was private - a rarity on Santorini. We were two couples and a baby and found the place extremely spacious. The house is situated steps away from the beautiful cliffs/views. Highly recommended.

Absolutely Gorgeous!! A beautiful home with spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend a holiday at Johan's home on Malteza Square in Imerovigli. You will not be disappointed. The house is absolutely impecible, inside and out. The sweeping views of the Agean from the multi-level rooftop balconies are amazing. And the courtyard pool is the perfect place to cool off and relax. I stayed with my kids, and we loved every minute of our time there. Johan made sure we felt at home and comfortable throughout our stay. The location is great too. We traveled all around the island and Imerovigli was definitely our favorite village. There are markets and restaurants within a few min walk... And of course breathtaking views around every turn. Luxury, privacy, location, space, charm, views... Seriously, this home has it all.

Serene Villa and quiet luxury in Imerovigli

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to Imerovigli at night and Eleni was at the Villa to greet us. She showed us around and then left us to explore for ourselves, letting us know she would return mid week to clean.We immediately were tempted by the stone steps leading us up to rooftop after rooftop to see the nighttime views of Imerovigli.

The courtyard and pool is where we lived all week because the weather was perfect.

But the great room/dining area is stunning!! The vaulted ceilings and windows bring beautiful light into the space. The same is true of the breakfast area. The architectural details throughout, and natural stone make the Villa truly special. It is close by to wonderful restaurants and steps away from the paths that thread throughout the island. After walking all day amid the beautiful, yet crowded paths of the Caldera towns, it was delightful to come home to the quiet refreshment of the Villa's pool and to recharge before going out to dinner. There is a/c, but at this time of year, we did not use it. Sleeping with windows open was delightful. Johan was very attentive as was Eleni. We had a wonderful time on Santorini and we would definitely stay at the Villa in Imerovigli on a return trip.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL. Villa and location perfect

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Johan's villa and I agree with everything the 5 star reviews have eloquently described. I would like to add that Johan, from the beginning, was extremely responsive. We didn't need to contact him with any problems, but he was great with organising our transfers to the airport and with our requests for an early check in which he was able to accommodate. We had to check out at 11 as there were other guests arriving that day but he kindly arranged for us to leave our suitcases at the villa as we had a late flight out. It was

a pleasure dealing with him.

Other guests have described the serene and private nature of the villa, and I will remember watching both the sunrise and the sunset from the roof terrace. Amenities were great - top of the line appliances and spacious, pleasant living space.We knew before arriving that the 3rd bathroom was remote from the bedroom, so it was not a problem for us. Although "elderly" we managed the steps in the middle of the night just fine.

The location is great - away from the cruise ship crowds but Fira can be reached by foot on the caldera path.

I heartily recommend Villa Maltese and the town of Imerovigli

On the very highest spot of the Caldera rim, on Malteza square in Imerovigli, stands this patrician mansion from the mid 19th century. The village of Imerovigli, perched more than 300 metres above the Aegean Sea, is widely recognised as the most exclusive location on Santorini and a favourite among seasoned travellers. Sheltered from the bustling crowds elsewhere on the island, Imerovigli captures the essence of what Santorini is all about – serenity, tranquillity and a surreal panorama.

Imerovigli is situated some 2 kilometres north of Fira which can be reached via a breathtaking walk along the Caldera. Imerovigli is further some 10 kilometres from the airport and 12 kilometres from the main port.
