This charming accommodation is a cluster of 5 traditional luxurious villas providing serenity and relaxation in an authentic environment untouched by mass tourism with easy access to the cosmopolitan Firá and to some of the best beaches in the island. The five stone built houses, dating from the early 20th century, have been fully renovated in 2011 paying attention to detail and following the traditional unique techniques of the local craftsmen. Amenities include a lobby, wireless Internet access, room service, a laundry service (fees apply) and a garage for those arriving by car.
The 5 villas are situated within the preserved settlement of Emporio Village (Kastelli). Emporio Village is 11 km from Firá, while Athinios, Santorini's port, lies 5 km from the property. The archaeological site of Akrotiri is about 5 km away and Perivolos, one of the best beaches of Santorini Island, is 2 km from the villas. Santorini Island's most famous beaches, Agios Georgios, Lichada and the Red Beach, are also very close to the establishment. Santorini Thira National Airport is 7 km from the property.
The villas have panoramic views of the preserved settlement (Kastelli) and the sea. The high outside walls ensure guests' privacy, while the modern amenities provide an ideal relaxing environment. The stone built villas are naturally cool even during the heat of midday. They are equipped with an LCD TV with satellite channels, a DVD Player, a direct dial telephone, and free Internet access. There is a double bed in the bedrooms. Each villa also comes with a private en suite bathroom with a shower, and a fully equipped kitchen featuring a fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
Each villa has a private indoor and outdoor heated swimming pool allowing for refreshing dips, as well as terraces and yards equipped with sun loungers and parasols ideal for relaxing and sunbathing. Further amenities include a hot tub and, for an additional fee, a range of massage treatments. The property is happy to arrange private visits to Castelli and the surrounding hills with mules, if desired.
Breakfast is prepared and served in guests' villas, on request. Lunch or dinner is prepared with local organic products and is also served in the villa. Guests can choose from a variety of dishes that represent the authentic cuisine of Santorini. (1 day advance notice is required.)
30 percent of the total amount is required as a deposit for the reservation. Guests can pay either by bank transfer or by credit card. American Express, MasterCard and VISA are accepted for credit card payments.
Drive from the port or airport to Emporio Village, ask for the traditional settlement and the road to the church of Agia Paraskevi. The villas are located on this road.
The property works in cooperation with a car rental office on the island. The everyday care of the houses is done by a friendly woman, Mrs Anna, who also prepares special meals to introduce guests to the local cuisine. A mobile phone is available to guests so that they can communicate with Mrs Dimitrina for free, should they need any information or help. Mrs Dimitrina is responsible for the villas and can be contacted 24 hours a day.
