The town of Oia with its picturesque Cycladic houses clinging vertiginously to the cliffside is situated in the north of the island, with spectacular views over the Caldera and the Aegean Sea. Villa Anemos is in a particularly lovely location, perched on top of the cliff, about 15 minutes walk from the town and with panoramic views of the sea and volcanic islands. At the front of the house, a lovely covered facing the sea, is the perfect place to sit and relax with a glass of local wine while enjoying the magnificent sunsets. There is also a terrace surrounding the private pool, with outdoor dining area, with large marble dining table and barbecue, as well as sunloungers for relaxing in the sun.
The house is one of four similar houses, in a row, and sharing a parking area to the rear. Newly constructed in typical white-washed Cycladic style, with blue doors and shutters, the colour scheme is continued in the charming interiors. The rooms are simply, yet tastefully furnished and the many amenities include satellite television, stereo/CD machine, wi-fi internet and ceiling fans.
This property is unique for its truly wonderful location and would be perfect for couples, or a family, looking for an idyllic base to relax in the sun, or explore this fascinating island. Nearby activities include hiking, horseback riding, sailing, snorkelling and windsurfing. The property also has use of a helipad.

breathtaking views, great location
Beautiful property, large enough for our whole family of 6 (4 teenagers). The back faces out onto the Agean Sea, so wonderful to wake up each morning to that view. Pool was great in the heat. Perfect location, away from the busiest area of Oia, but we walked in to town each day...took only 10 minutes. Great restaurant right across the street if you don't want to walk. Beaches on opposite side (east side) we walked to it, but not everyone would do that walk, may need a car to get around. We took the bus to Fira and then hiked back to Villa Anemos (3hrs)...was spectacular. Villa Anemos was just right for us, would highly recommend to any family with older kids or couples travelling together!
Thanks so much Kelly! It was a real pleasure helping you plan this. I hope you'll stay again!
Its all about the view!
The external area beside the pool and the view from this villa are the standouts. The pool is enormous by Oia standards, and its really well positioned for privacy from the adjoining 3 villas, and for taking in the spectacular view - divine. However, there is absolutely no privacy from the other villas when you are sitting at the outdoor dining off the living room, sadly making this space relatively unusable. Internal space was overall a little disappointing. On the plus side, this is a large villa - however the beds are small (there are no king size beds - and the bed in room 3 is very small - this room is really a single room). This wasn't a problem for our children staying in bedroom 2 + 3, but adults trying to share these rooms would struggle. The villa is very homely - but a bit too much clutter for our tastes. We also experienced some issues with the second bathroom - and couldn't use it during our stay. Fortunately, there is an upstairs cloakroom off the kitchen - which was a very welcome surprise. The kitchen is small, and the dishwasher was a welcome inclusion.
There is no A/C which is definitely a problem in the summer season with the warmer weather. There is little to no cross breeze available in the subterranean bedrooms, and the fans are not at all effective.
Overall, it wouldn't take much to make this villa amazing internally - to match the beauty of the external space. This villa would be perfection if the few little things above were addressed.
Hi Monique, thank you very much for your comments. These were passed straight onto the owner, who has in turn made some great improvements to the villa. I think you were also very unlucky with the neighbours during your stay, which was also reported to the owner. I very much hope this hasn't put you off returning to this wonderful villa in the future. Many thanks, Freddie Marquis - The Luxury Travel Book
Great location, beautiful views, easy access to Oia
Wonderful property for our family of five. Only disappointment was the Wi-Fi didn't work and didn't get resolved during our stay.
Thanks for your comments Todd. Apologies for the Wifi issue - I'm pleased that this was quickly fixed during your stay.
Incredible views and lovely!
I had a lovely stay at this charming villa just outside Oia with my family. The 3 bedrooms downstairs are comfortable and cosy and the views from upstairs are breathtaking! The pool is larger than most in Santorini and we spent hours sitting on the raised table area outside the living room/dining room gazing at the stunning views. Will definitely be coming back! Thank you Freddie for organising!
Thanks for your kind comments James! We hope to help you again in the future.
Villa Anemos: Excellent choice
We had a wonderful time in Villa Anemos, Santorini! The house was perfect for our group of 3 couples. We appreciated the refreshing pool, the clean house, shower and toilets that worked perfectly and the tasteful decoration of the house. - This villa is an excellent choice for an unforgettable vacation.
Thanks Sibylle. We're delighted you had an enjoyable stay, and hopefully you and your family will return soon!
once in a lifetime
We spent six nights at this property with our family of six adults. The pictures are truely accurate revealing the extraordinary views from this villa. The villa is cleaned
twice weekly. A nice local restaurant is across the street. Very safe area. Easy walk to town for all endeavours in Oia. There is bus service 50 yards away but a car would be helpful and not very expensive. Wi-fi was a challenge but now corrected.
Actually 2.5 bathrooms.
We would return yearly except for the distance.
So pleased you enjoyed your stay, we hope you can visit the house again!
