Gorgeous cave villa with stunning views in a great location! Very Attentive Staff. Just magical!
We stayed 4 nights at Ventus Paradiso to celebrate our 20th anniversary and the visit far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this villa! The staff was very attentive from the time we made the reservation to our departure. Babis was thorough and efficient in all our booking and planning correspondence. We opted for the semi-private (mini-van) transport to/from the ferry terminal, which was euros well spent. We arrived in Gali Square and was met by Elena who graciously introduced us to Ventus Paradiso. The villa is located just a short distance from Gali Square (left onto the main walkway, then right at Skaros Restaurant and roughly two flights of stairs down). The villa is quite private compared to many of the caldera-side cave villas/hotels. We spent most of our time on the veranda with the gorgeous hot tub (comfortable bench adjacent to it) and a nice table and chairs (and umbrella) because of the privacy and view. Each morning we enjoyed a delicious breakfast at this spot. Quite lovely. We placed our preferred breakfast time and order (a variety of choices-- eggs, croissants, Greek yogurt, fresh fruit, etc.) the night before. There is also a large terrace above the villa with two lounge chairs, umbrella and comfortable settee. It has a more wide-open view but not as private. A nice place to enjoy the sunset. Inside of the villa is just like the pictures. Very well-appointed. The bed was very comfortable, shower huge (nice hot water and water pressure). The kitchen has all the necessities, including a starter bottled water (water is not drinkable). There are at least 3 grocery/mini-markets conveniently located in/near Gali Square. The villa was extremely clean and maintained daily by the friendly housekeeper (also breakfast cook/server). Elena assisted us with things to do on Santorini and gave us recommendations for restaurants and tours. Very helpful. She arranged two tours for us (a sailing tour and bus tour which included the Akrotiri ancient site, Black Beach--highly recommend, Santos winery) as well as dinner reservations at a superb restaurant "Idol" in Fira. Also, recommend the trail to Oia and eating at Sunset Taverna (Ammoudi) for fresh fish. In visiting both Fira, Oia, and other parts of the island, we liked Imerovigli the best--less touristy, quiet with amazing views. We had a perfect view of the gorgeous sunset every night from the villa (at least in late September). Just magical! Thank you so much!
It was a pleasure having you as guests at Ventus Paradiso Villa, Jennifer. Your constructive and detailed review about your experience with us is very important to future travellers looking for the suitable place (and property team of course) for their vacation. We are very happy to have made your 20th anniversary a memorable experience. We hope to accommodate at your 21st anniversary, as well :) Take care!
Loved this property. The host was very kind and attentive to our needs
Their next door property did not meet the expectations and the owner was defensive when we provided the feedback. Elena was helpful and Ventus villa magic
Dear Tatjana, Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure hosting you this summer and you are welcome back to my property anytime. We had discussed about my other property and you accepted to spend part of your long stay for a lower price after you had seen photos and reviews on the web. My other property is of the same standards, just a bit smaller. On your next travel you or your friends could ask me stay in Ventus Paradiso for your whole stay 😊 Ventus Paradiso team wish all the best to you and your family.
This property is one of the only ones I've ever been to where the pictures are exactly what you'll find when you arrive. I thought before I arrived that if the property was half of what it was in the pictures I would be happy. I was blown away by how perfect it was. The location of the villa is also ideal as it sits in the middle of the island with easy access to Fira or Oia. The staff were fantastic! Gregg was attentive to all of our needs and answered any questions we had.
Dear Jonathan, It is my pleasure that you selected Ventus Paradiso Villa to spend your holiday in Santorini! We have been more that glad to read your feedback about your stay here. We wish you all the best and hope to accommodate you in one of our properties on your next visit to Santorini. With gratitude, Babis
Amazing view - amazing hot tub - great service
We stayed in the Ventus Paradiso Villa for 5 nights as the second part of our honeymoon (Naxos first - amazing island - need min 3 nights to really explore - hike Mount Zas). We were very pleased with the villa and the service Greg and his mates provided. They were very responsive to our needs during the trip and truly made it feel like everything was taken care of. If we needed something, we just picked up the phone and it was done. We also really enjoyed Imerovigli as it as close to Fira and an adventurous walk away from Oia. You can't actually see the full sunset from the villa but you can walk short distance to watch it set. The clouds come in often at night and it is a truly unforgettable experience to be in this hot tub when this happens. It is also a great central spot to travel to the beaches on the other side of the island - which we did. The best Euro we ate in Greece was right up the street next to the square, I swear we ate it daily! Avocado and Mezzo are the best spots to eat near the villa - try them both - trust me! I highly recommend this villa, it's peaceful, luxurious and the perfect treat to go with Santorini. Oh and try the white wine on the island - best in the world. Have fun!
Dear Elaina, We would like to thank you for writing this honest lines about your experience in our place! In fact there are two sides in Imerovigli (Imerovigli is supposed to be the best place for relax and tranquility). Somebody needs to sacrificial a bit of volcano view to have a full sunset view. From places where you have an unobstructed sunset view, it is more likely to have partial volcano view. However, in periods before middle June and after early September, you have a great sunset view from Ventus Paradiso besides the panoramic volcano view! Avocado and Mezzo are really good places to enjoy Greek quality cuisine. By the way, Avocado is within 1 minute from our other property "Villa Lukas". There are more places to enjoy Greek cuisine, in Imerovigli and in other villages, and we are more than happy to assist our guests with recommendations and bookings. Just pick up the phone and call! :) Tip: Asyrtiko (white wine) from Hatzidakis winery is my favorite - definitely there are more to try! Many thanks and you are welcome back! Babis and Ventus Paradiso Team!
The location, cleanliness, and size of this property can not be beat.
I'm going to break this review up into two parts, the first to speak about the actual property. The property is truly stunning. I traveled with my husband and another couple. We had ample space and the villa was cleaned daily. I felt supported by villa Lukas and Greg was phenomenal to work with. He was attentive and helpful and responsive. The villa has amazing views of the caldera and is in a great location to get to oia or Fira. It's quiet and there are a couple of good restaurants walking distance from the property. The property does have cave style rooms but they are quite spacious and the bathrooms are truly a work of art. I would definitely return.
The second part of my review is about my experience working with the owner/manager Babis. Babis was very responsive prior to us arriving at the property. He answered all my questions double confirmed our dates and helped me set up transportation for when we arrived at the villa. The problem started when we went to check in, when we checked in, he had his staff check us into the villa next door to the one we paid for and when I asked why..... they spun it as a promotional incentive and they told us that the one next door to ours is a newer villa and that they want guests to experience at least one night in that villa so that they can get feedback on what they could be doing better. When I pushed further because I was not interested in this promotion, plus the villa was significantly smaller then the one we paid for especially for 4 people, I was told that despite having multiple confirmations from Babis our villa was actually not available for our first day so all they could do was put us in the villa next door. Not only was it not available but Babis did not offer to refund my money for the first night. When I pushed, he offered 50% off and then after down right arguing with him for 20minutes about my disappointment and frustration with the lack of customer service he did give me a full refund for that night. Despite that hiccup our stay was truly amazing, as a customer I would have appreciated the honesty of Babis telling me that something happened with our reservation or that he overbooked the villa and that they were offering us something else vs. it being spun as a promotional gimmick. Despite that, we loved our stay in Santorini and cannot wait to return.
Dear Laiqah A.,
Warm greeting from Santorini to you and your whole group staying with us!
Me and my team would like to thank you for visiting us this summer. I would like to thank you for an honest review, as well. You are describing our property and your overall experience in a very detailed way that could be really helpful to us in order to make things better and improve ourselves and our service. Besides and most important, this would mainly help visitors make a choice among the vast variety of properties that would make them live a dreaming vacation in Santorini and take the most out of their trip.
In regards with the first night, indeed our neighbor property is brand new and started working in July 1st and since then we do offer this property to people staying with us in order to try it. Please, note that the price and the quality is of the same level for all our villas.
Sometimes, however, despite our efforts, the result does not reach complete customer satisfaction, and we apologize for this. We respect your thoughts and your points and will take them into thorough consideration; however, mentioning that we downright were arguing for 20 minutes about your disappointment and frustration for lack of customer service is kind of excessive and let me mention that is far from reality. With all due respect, you and all our guests enjoy 24/7 support and customer service in everything you may need and even for special requests. Moreover, we never actually argued since my first proposal was 50% refund but when you said that this is not accepted I gladly offered a complimentary 1st night of stay with no more discussion, at all. This was an “argument” (if we are allowed to name it “argument”) of less than 5 minutes.
Never ever we argue with our guests since your satisfaction has always been our primary goal. For this reason, we dedicate our whole attention to our guests, aware of the importance of offering services of the highest quality, rigorously controlled and managed by our Quality Management System.
You are more than welcome back to our place on your next visit in Santorini. Me and my team are more than glad to see you soon and offer one complimentary night for a long stay.
Manager of Ventus Paradiso Villa, Olea Cave House and Villa Lukas
Ventus Paradiso Villa is located in Imerovigli, in the middle of Santorini.
Visitors can enjoy hiking through a wonderful path with amazing views leading to Oia. It is around 10 Km from our place and you will go through Prophet Ilias mountain (the name of the chapel as well). Prophet (prophitis is most common) Ilias along with Pyrgos are the two highest spots in Santorini.
There is another hiking path, around 2 Km, to Fira capital. Walking through Firostefani village, you will enjoy sea view.
Anastasi church with the blue roof and it's bell tower will excite you while Saint George church, which hangs from the edge of the cliffs will thrill you.
Skaros rock is worth a visit. It used to be the capital of Santorini until the 18th century. A medieval fortress that was built on the hill would protect the residents that inhabited there from the pirate attacks. Now only remnants of that castle can be found there. It is a place that attracts a lot of visitors offering unique views from the top. Walk around the hill until you find Theoskepasti chapel and the stunning view will charm you.
