Guestbook comments from the owner

Left on Nov 17, 2015 for a stay in Aug 2015

I've spent a few months trying to figure out how to accurately capture the ways in which our stay at Seahorse will stay with me forever. Perhaps it was Athena's sundried tomatoes, or better yet her fried tomato balls that will take center stage when I'm thinking back on the best memories of my life. Maybe it will be Xenofon's stories about jazz, or New York, or Mumbai. Maybe it was the Greek yogurt they made for us from scratch every morning. Maybe it was be watching how much they love each other and how much they love food, and how that in and of itself made every bite of their incredible cooking simply transcendental. Maybe it was the firework show, gastronomy dinner, or world-class professional photographer (Ellegeliki, who was amazing!) that Chantal helped us plan at a very low cost. Maybe it was getting engaged to my partner under the Grecian sun on the cliffs at Seahorse that colors my memories. It's hard to say now. What I do know is that having the incredible fortune of having spent time at Seahorse wasn't just a vacation. It was a meditation on life. It was a reminder of the things that are important. It was an affirmation that in the most seemingly remote corners of the world, there are loving, warm, kind, worldly, intelligent, generous people like Chantal and her staff. It took about two days into our week to absolutely fall in love with Santorini, and it will take a lifetime to forget. Thank you again for everything, Chantal! We will be back!

A wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for a week at Chantal's property...it was located in a perfect location and had truly breathtaking views. Chantal and her staff couldn't be more accommodating, whether booking catamaran trips or recommending dinner options. Chefs Xenofon and Athena served beautiful breakfasts daily. We can't wait to be able to come back and stay with Chantal again!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic. Views, location, staff all A+. They even provide laundry service!! No hesitation in recommending this place to anyone. You will not be sorry. There are several sections to the property which allow for privacy when needed. Make sure you rent the right group of rooms if you want the pool. Property manager is very helpful and communicative. Great stay from beginning to end. Only regret was that it wasn't longer.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

The experience was absolutely perfect. The rooms and layout of the villa was great four our group. The pool deck views were breathtaking & the set up so comfortable. Chantal and her villa team were so helpful- From accommodating our early arrival with a seamless airport pickup and breakfast, to setting up all the plans we wanted to do last minute & advising when we went out on our own. The chefs took the experience to the next level - with their food and charming personalities. We would recommend anyone we know to stay and hope to go back ourselves.

The view and the villa was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property in Firastefani was absolutely amazing! The rooms were beautiful and also very comfortable. The outdoor areas were stunning and the view was spectacular! Chantal and her wonderful staff were so helpful and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. We were there with our family of 5 including 3 teenagers and another family of 4 with two teenagers. All of us had an unforgettable time. The villa is right on the cliff with the most incredible views and is very private but only 10 minute walk along the walking path which is on the edge of the cliff, into the main town of Fira. The chefs, Xenaphon and Athena were fabulous. Breakfast was great as they cooked something different every morning. We also had dinner there three nights as we knew we would always get a delicious meal. We had never been to Santorini before and staying here made It so much more memorable especially because of this beautiful villa.

Thank you Chantal and Sophie (Chantal's daughter). We will definitely be back!

Regards

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is an amazing experience for all the senses! The rooms are lovely and Chantal's team goes above and beyond to make their guests feel spoiled. The chefs provided us with such an amazingly fabulous meal the first night that we had them prepare a dinner for us the night before we left. Additionally, Zenofon was willing and able to take us to places that we wanted to visit. The location of the villa is perfect! Guests can stay at the villa and enjoy the beautiful surroundings or take a walk to town. Highly recommend this villa!

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fantastic; the rooms were all great; even the pictures don't do the view justice; and the location within Santorini was perfect (there's enough going on just steps from the villa, but at the same time you have privacy in that people can't see down to the outdoor space, you never hear any noise, etc. - i honestly thought it was better situated on the island than Oia). And Chantal was superb - she helped with transport, restaurant reservations, directions, groceries... everything! Would definitely go back and recommend to friends / family. We were a group of 8 adults and didn't feel remotely cramped. I wouldn't bring young kids there given the large number of steep stairs, it's impossible to child-proof, and you're basically living on the side of a fairly steep mountain... so glad we left the kids at home!
