“Heaven.. Breathtaking views, stunning luxury villa. V private!”
Reviewed 3 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Let me start with greeting from our hosts Themis and Christina. Two wonderful people - so friendly, so nice, so helpful! They were the perfect representatives of Santorini, an island full of incredibly hospitable people.
The villa itself is absolutely beautiful. It is postcard, holiday advert, dream nice! The outside areas are incredibly comfortable, lots of cushioned furniture and seating, lovely pool and lighting and a surprising amount of shade should it be needed.
The views over the caldera are spectacular. You are facing directly west into the most incredible sunsets you could imagine. Completely unobstructed view to the horizon and full sight of all the islands. You overlook the big rock Skaros. We hiked up there one day and one friend took photos of our tiny selves in the distance.
You can hike from the front door for hours and I 100% recommend this as an activity. The coastline is so dramatic. It looks different from every angle and the towns hanging from the clifftops are lined with stunning bars and cafes. My heart sings a little just thinking about it. The food at every single establishment we visited was fantastic too by the way.
Back to the incredible villa... The views from the bedrooms are to die for. The beds are comfortable, the rooms are air conditioned. I really enjoyed making tzatziki in the kitchen looking out over the sunny pool and caldera. The bathrooms are fully stocked with soap, shampoo and lotion. Bathrobes are neatly refolded every morning.
I also noted how much more private our villa was than almost any of the others we saw while we were out and about. The nature of the villas built into the cliffside and paths that weave in and out mean that a lot of villas are very exposed. This one was much more private! There were areas where you can see in, but you can happily sunbathe nude if you wish.
Honestly, WHAT IS NOT TO LOVE?!?!
I want to go back. Maybe I will because there are so many good reasons to.
If you are in two minds about whether or not to book this place, do not spend another moment wondering: YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
Enjoy Santorini and love Antelmi!

“Superb stay and lovely hosts”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Theasis and Christina have a very well maintained property and are wonderful human beings. They took care of all our needs and more. Can safely say that the sunset view from Antelmi was one of the best from Firostefani. Theasis went out of his way to' spice' up our breakfast and the other Christina (the lady who keeps the place spotlessly clean) baked us some sumptuous cakes. They helped us with a tour and got us a brilliant guide who took us around Santorini - some touristy and some hidden spots who patiently explained the history of the island. We had a medical emergency and Christina & Theasis helped us with a Pediatric within an hour of calling her. Overall it was a home away from home and if we were to go back, i have no doubts as to where we would be staying.

My wife and I stayed at Antelmi with another couple for four days and had a wonderful time! The location is great (just a short walk to Fira) and the view of the calderra is spectacular. Christina was a wonderful host and helped us arrange day trips and other activities while we were on the island. Would recommend without hesitation to anyone making the trip to Santorini!

“Beyond every Expectation!”

Christina and Themis have to be the BEST hosts on the island of Santorini. Antelmi villa was beyond all our expectations and the location could not have been better. Having never been to Santorini we were not sure where on the island to stay and now visiting all of it, we chose the perfect place. The villa was amazing, and the views are what I would say are some of the best on Santorini right from the pool deck. The hospitality of Christina and Themis made the stay absolutely perfect in every way. Private Chef, dinner reservations, site seeing, private yacht rental, you name it, they sorted it out. Themis made us a fantastic breakfast each day and helped plan our perfect adventures. There were some great restaurants just up the hill from house and tons of things just a short walk into Thira. The only regret is that we did not stay longer as all of us would have like to just spend more time at Antelmi. We now feel that we have made new friends! Hope to return very soon.

What a beautiful villa. A group of 8 of us stayed for 5 nights. My friends had their wedding ceremony at the villa and Christina and Thamus went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect. Great location, fantastic views and the sunsets incredible. If you are travelling with a group of people I would highly recommend the Antelmi....
