About the property

3 Bedroom Private Villa/House with Pool offering Stunning Views.

Set amongst some of the island’s most exclusive hotels and resorts you will find “Villa Santorini”., one of the few private homes on the Caldera in this idyllic location.

Boasting 3 levels of outdoor patio space, a private pool and views from every angle to the Caldera, our home awaits your family or group of friends to ensure your Santorini dream comes true. The location is unsurpassed , within waking distance along the spectacular cliffside path to the island’s capital yet quiet and serene, with restaurants, shops and bakeries only steps away.

The interior is a classic cave house, with cathederal ceilings in the living room, crisp white walls, and 3 separate bedrooms. The master suite can be used as a fourth bedroom for a large party.

We welcome you to enjoy the SLICE OF HEAVEN we have come to adore here at our Greek island home

Sample Comment:

We had an unforgettable vacation. It exceeded our expectations. The Villa is beautiful, the view is breathtaking and situated in an ideal location(imerovigli) which is outside of the hustle and bustle of Fira but close enough to walk. I consider myself to have high standards, since I stay in 5 star hotels quite often for int'l business travel, and this accomodation surpassed my expectations and I, personally, think the villa is much more beautiful in person than in the pictures. The house is beautiful, the decor is modern but also holding to the traditional santorini style villa, the amenenties are great - eg beautiful kitchen, fresh robes, maid service, the concierge, great hairdryer and flat iron, surround sound .The family that owns this house takes great pride and care in their home and are wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this Villa to anyone visiting Santorini.

Why Susan chose Imerovigli

This property was the last I saw the day I viewed the houses for sale in Santorini and I fell in love with it immediately. Its location was to die for and I knew this one was for me.

What makes this villa unique

Traditional Santorini home built in the volcanic rock from 3500 years ago with Cathedral ceiling and spacious interior.

Ideal home offering patio outdoor life with private pool and stunning views of the caldera while the cool interior welcomes you at the end of the day

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I have just returned home following our stay in Santorini. I

just wanted to contact to you to say thank you so much for the opportunity

to stay in Villa Santorini. The Villa surpassed our expectations in terms

of location and room (even though we thought it was big).

My husband and I travel extensively but the Villa has to be the highlight

of all our trips in recent years. My family from England were even more

impressed with it which made our stay extremely enjoyable.

Vandas help was much appreciated and we enjoyed the local community so much

we felt very sad having to leave. I can assure you when we plan to go again

we will be in touch.

All the best,

One of the best places ever stayed!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Villa Santorini, and this is one of the best places we´ve ever stayed. The best few on the island, high above the sea. The real nice and relaxing and very private pool area. The many outdoor terraces with stunning views. A very well equipped kitchen. The master bedroom en suite offers a lot of space. The “villa in the villa” on the top floor offers a lot of privacy for teenagers. The villa is located conviniently in the center of the island, everything is close by. Parking was easy, three mini markets and many restaurants are very close (1 minute walking) to the villa. A housekeeper comes every day and does the cleaning. It´s a very secure place with a lot of love for details. The owners were great to deal with, they provided a lot of support and good advice, communication was easy and fast. Vanda, their local representative, is a lovely lady with a lot of knowledge about the island and the things to do, and she was happy to share and support us in many ways. We would definitively stay here again and will recommend this villa in particular to all of our friends.

Lovely Villa Santorini

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated between the towns of Fira and Oia. This is just far enough from the crowds yet closet enough to walk to Fira for dinner. It is very peaceful and quite while in the home and enjoying the pool area and yet the busy pedestrian path is just behind the villa so it's the best of both worlds! The villa is spacious with three bedrooms and three baths. Vanda is the caretaker and is extremely helpful in making reservations and such for your island activities. She really cares about you while you stay there. She even emailed me after we left to make sure that we safely made our ferry connections and arrived at our next location safely. So nice! I highly recommend Villa Santorini!!!

Stunning views, well appointed villa

  • 5 of 5

Imerovigli is a picturesque, quiet village near the north of Santorini. In truth there's not much more than some supermarkets and a few restaurants in the village and they are as a result quite expensive. The upside, however, is that it's a wonderfully restful, tranquil location and you can get a decent night's sleep probably not possible in busier resorts. The capital, Fera, is a mile and a half away - an easy and pleasant stroll along the coastal path for dinner. This villa is perfect for a family or a group of friends - clean, comfortable, well appointed and with a pool that may appear to be small but in comparison with other properties in the village is actually very generous. And the views - utterly stunning. The cleaner comes daily but her presence is not intrusive and Vanda the villa manager is helpful and friendly. I only disagree with her on one point - DO make the journey north to Oia for the sunset. Yes, it's a tricky drive and yes, it's very crowded but it's worth the trouble. I can't speak highly enough about this villa, my family had a wonderful week and will definitely be back

Lovely villa with spectacular views of the Caldera! Vanda was fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Santorini for 8 days with 6 people. It's a great location away from all the noise of Thira but only 20-25 minute walk away. Although there isn't a sunset view from the villa, one only has to walk a short way to see it. The view of the Caldera from the villa is spectacular and that's what we wanted. Vanda will go over all the must see areas around the island and different ways to do it. I suggest that you arrange your arrival to and from Port or airport with her. They were always there waiting for us. The Villa sleeps 8 comfortably. Bathrooms are great. Someone comes in every day while you are gone to make beds and do some cleaning. Never had a security issue and always felt safe and secure. Love all the different levels of deck area all with incredible views. It was great to come back to the villa at the end of a long day of fun and kick back with no one else but us. We would definitely stay here again!! Thank you for a memorable stay on Santorini.

Guest Comments

We stayed at Villa Santorini with another family ( July 2009) and found the villa to be very comfortable and spacious. The location was excellent - close to shops/ restaurants and only a 25-30 minute walk to Fira, the capital-with kids!. The local village was great also. Susan and Vanda were extremely helpful with all our questions during and before the trip. It was really nice to be in a place with all the comforts of home - the beds were comfy , there was wifi and all the small details were thought of.

The terraces at the villa were amazing and most nights we found it hard to justify leaving for dinner as we literally had the best view in town! Having said that, I would highly recommend Naoussa for dinner in Fira.

Overall we had an amazing week in Santorini - wish we had more time!

Magical. is the way that describes it the best. The magic began when the manager escorted us to the property. WOW! It is absolutely amazing. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. The property has been renovated and decorated extremely well. You can tell the owners put a lot of time, effort, and money into this house. The owners were so helpful even before I committed to rent the house. When we arrived, the manager sat with us for about 30 minutes recommending where to go and what to see. The manager was always available. The location was fantastic. The town is about a 30-40 minute (beautiful) walk to Fira. I would highly recommend renting this will have privacy, views, space, and will not be disappointed!
