The villa is in the traditional quiet village of Emporio at the south part of the beautiful Santorini and it is situated near the castle of the village.
The property is in a traditional Cycladic style with a beautiful sun terrace and a private pool. It has two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, living-room, a fully equipped kitchen with all the appliances plus two extra cave rooms. It includes all bedding and towels, plasma TV, DVD, WiFi, washing machine etc. The villa can accommodate 6-8 guests.
This lovely villa made the perfect base for exploring Santorini. Most of all I loved sitting on the roof terrace in the evening watching the world go by - the half-light around sunset, fantastic views out to sea, windmills on the horizon, the Castelli bell tower, the buzzing vehicles on the Emporio road below as they make their way between sunsets and clubs. We all (the children especially) loved the pool! Always clean, a great way to cool off after the walk back up to the house, not big but surprisingly deep. Emporio is only a short drive away from the beaches at Perivolos, Fira in 15 mins, Oia in 30+-. The villa itself is situated up in the old town - a 5 minute walk from the small, modern town centre, where you will find an excellent bakery, 2 well-stocked supermarkets, medical centre and a couple of local bars and restaurants. The house was cool, clean and true to the pictures - traditional styling, a well-equipped kitchen, a great shower/bathroom. There are two double bedrooms, a small cave bedroom downstairs (basic furnishing) and a separate, smart cave suite accessed externally (we did not use this as we didn't need to - but do make sure you ask if you are a larger group). Despite being in the old part of town, where houses are built on top of each other, it is reasonably private (though I did worry the children might wake our neighbours with their early morning swim!).
Sotiris responded promptly by email and was in touch via the family who looked after maintenance and cleaning (the house was cleaned meticulously, daily). On our arrival in Emporio, quite late in the evening, we phoned Vasilly who met us and showed us the way up through winding alleys (we were a bit worried that this way of finding our villa would not work out, but it was fine).
If you are of limited mobility, this is probably not the spot for you - walking back up to the villa, especially in the heat of the day, is strenuous. However, its well worth it for the view, and for the character of the old town you get the privilege of living in. You can wander the alleys and in a couple of minutes you are at the Goulas, or in the other direction the beautiful Castelli (on the way you will find a fantastic tiny roof-top bar for a cool beer before sunset!) - I wish I had had more time to wander these streets; with all the rest of the island to visit too, we ran out of time! Great villa and location combining convenience, atmosphere and history - Thank you Sotiris!
The place is located it a very quiet area , pool is very nice as well, I think I enjoyed it the most about the property as it was hot while we were there and pool was always clean,cool, and refreshing . The host went above and beyond to make sure our stay was relaxing and helped us make several travel arrangements and let us stay a extended period of time free of charge that helped with our 3:35am flight to Barcalona , I would recommend this villa while in Santorini.

Nous étions une famille de 5 personnes (2 adultes et 3 enfants) à passer nos vacances dans cette villa à Emporio.
Cette villa récemment rénovée est très agréable, dans un style troglodytique, au centre d'Emporio, où l'on aime à se perdre dans les petites ruelles de ce joli petit village.
Elle est située proche des commerces (5 mn à pied) et proche des plages de Périssa ou Périvolos (3 km).
La maison est spatieuse avec 3 chambres et 1 grande salle de bain avec jacuzzi (erreur sur le descriptif) , confortable et calme (mais attention aux cloches du dimanche matin!!!)
La piscine est relativement petite mais très agréable pour se détendre et se rafraichir avec les chaleurs qu'il peut y avoir à Santorin.
Le propriétaire est très sympathique et accueillant. En arrivant, il vous explique les ballades et visites à faire, en vous conseillant sur quelques bons restaurants. Il est facilement disponible en cas de besoin.
Pour se déplacer, il faut une voiture ou un quad éventuellement.
Personnellement pour ceux qui souhaitent se détendre, profitez de la beauté de l'ile de Santorin, et qui apprécient le style ancien, c'est une location que nous conseillons.
Bonnes vacances à vous.
Merci à Sotiris pour son accueil et sa sympathie.
