We had an absolutely fantastic stay at Zafira Residence from the 1-8 October 2016 - we literally did not want it to end! Everything about this villa is absolute luxury, it has been built to such a high specification that everything is so perfect and beautiful but yet affordable - all of the facilities are fabulous particularly the pool. The villa is spacious, comfortable & modern & the location is perfect - 2 mins from the airport and far enough away (only 5 mins drive) from the hustle and bustle of Thira but still with the amazing views.
The service that comes with this villa is second to none - Zaph the villa manager was literally incredible & nothing was too much trouble for her, from arranging a boat cruise, booking taxis, ordering quad bikes/food - literally anything we asked for was done within minutes - she was not pushy at all but was always on hand to help us out whenever we needed it, she even gave us a Greek phone so that we could contact her when we were out and about on the island and didn't have WiFi - incredible! Totally above and beyond what was expected - even once we were checked out Zaph was still on hand to help us out when there was threat of our flight being delayed/cancelled, providing us with up to date information and finding us accommodation just in case the worst was to happen - not only for us but our friends also. I cannot thank her enough.
The villa is also thoroughly cleaned every single day by Tasia with fresh bedding, towels etc - again amazing service and above and beyond what was expected!
I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anybody who is interested in staying and I would certainly not hesitate to book again!
A huge thanks again to everyone involved - what an amazing stay, I wish it never ended!

We've just returned from the most fantastic 7 nights stay at the Zafira Residence. The property and the service we received from the owner Zaphiroula were both first class and I would certainly recommend this property to anyone wanting a luxurious and private stay in Santorini.
The property is just outside of Fira and is very spacious. The gated entry is very secure and the sprawling driveway gives you a little hint of what's in store when you open the door to the villa. The decor is beautiful and the villa is very large, as is the outside area and the pool. The villa is brand new and it's exceptionally well looked after.
The villa is undoubtedly stunning but the owner Zaphiroula adds that extra special touch. Nothing is too much trouble for her, from meeting us at the airport to showing us the way to Fira. On arrival she gave us a phone and said she would be on hand for anything we needed. She was true to her word! She gave us lots of great advice on what to do on the island, where to eat and drink and booked us restaurants, trips and taxis. She was so speedy, nothing is too much trouble and she seems to work 24/7!
For an extra special trip to Santorini this is the place to stay for me.
This is an amazing property. We visited Santorini for 3 nights. The location is away from the hustle and bustle which was perfect for our group. We had an amazing beautiful house and had our privacy.
The best part of this property without a doubt is the host Zaphiroula. She was absolutely phenomenal and went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and everything was going well.
Before our arrival she organized us groceries which we had requested. She packed them away properly and asked us if we needed anything else. Everyday she would follow up with us to ensure that we were ok and if we required anything.
One of the guests forgot her shoes in the villa. Zaphiroula without any hesitation packed them and sent them to mykonos on her account. She did not accept any payment from us for the shipping.
This is definitely one of the best places I have stayed in on my travels. I would recommend this place to any family or group of friends. You will love the property and your trip to Santorini will be made perfect by Zafiroula's hospitality.
Thank you Zafiroula!
