  The place is amazing. My family spent 3 nights here over the Thanksgiving holiday. There are 3 totally separate units in the place. Very nice, clean and secure. Eleni was a great help with travel plans. The breakfast was great! We will stay here again!

We had a large group of nine individuals and this was the perfect spot with plenty of space. Eleni was the perfect host and provided us with great recommendations for dining and excursions, and she was always quick to respond to our questions. About the Villa — the pictures simply don’t do it justice! This is quite possibly the most stunning view that I’ve watched the sunset. I’d highly recommend this villa.

Villa Antelmi was perfect for our 3 families with young children! The views from the villa are absolutely gorgeous!!!! Eleni took great care of us the entire time from arranging our transportation to and from the airport, booking a great land tour and an awesome private sunset tour, preparing delicious breakfast daily. She also gives great restaurant recommendations - every restaurant was yummy. We all had a great time and will definitely come back to Santorini and Villa Antelmi!!!

Antelmi houses is everything one expects and even more. The host, Eleni, is excellent. She recommended restaurants for us to eat at, places to visit and even organised the driver and van for us to get around. The houses itself is just amazing. We were 8 adults with 2 kids and a baby and we never wanted for anything. Everything was provided, including a baby cot and high chair. The breakfast on each day was excellent and served on the terrace. The view from the terrace was mesmerising. The pool and the whole house was cleaned every day. The experience was far better than expected. Definitely recommend the place.

Date of Stay Sep 2, 2017

I can not say enough positive things about my stay at the Antelmi Houses. There were 10 people in my party and we were all able to be comfortably housed. The rooms and property are beautiful and accurately depicted in the photographs provided. The location of the house was perfect for our needs - 5 minutes from the airport, 10 minutes from Fira and no more than 25 minutes to the beaches/sites that we wanted to visit while in Santorini - and beautifully situated in Mesaria where there are multiple food/shopping options. Eleni was a consummate host and a large factor in our great experience. Pick up service was arranged for us to and from the airport, as well as additional airport and ferry transfers for individuals in my party who left at different times. Eleni arranged for us to rent ATVs from a location about 5 minutes walk from the Antelmi Houses and also offered to coordinate on-site massages for any interested individuals in my party. The icing on the cake was that Eleni provided a complimentary breakfast for everyone in my party our second day and it was a truly special offering. I would recommend this property to anyone, whether they are traveling with a large party like mine or in a smaller party as the set up of the location can accommodate both size parties. And if I could give this location, and the overall experience, more than 5 stars I would.

Villa Antelmi was everything we expected and more. Gorgeous views, perfect location in Firostefani surrounded by a small town and delicious restaurants. 15 minute breath taking walk along the caldera to Fira. The house is beautifully decorated. Perfect for our family of 5 with 4 private bedrooms. Private but with access to everything. Anastasia was a wonderful host, always available for any questions and to help us arrange activities. The sunset catamaran cruise is a must! Delicious breakfast made every morning as we got ready for our day. This is truly a special place.

HOMEAWAY Aug 10, 2017 Firostefani, Santorini

Date of Stay Aug 3, 2017

We had a fantastic 4 nights at Antelmi Villa. Antelmi is even better than it looks in the pictures. There were 4 couples celebrating my husband's birthday. We all had our own private space, together with plenty of shared areas. The outdoor area is surperb and views are stunning. Eleni and our host Anastasia could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. From organising transfers, restaurants, boat cruises and even a photographer to take photos of our group prior to the birthday celebration. Breakfast was prepared and served each morning by the pool at a time that suited us. The food was home cooked and of high quality. We all agreed that Antelmi was perfect for our stay and would thoroughly recommend the property . Congratulations to Eleni for providing a first class private holiday villa that delivers more than expected. Happy to share our experience with anyone deciding to book. gerardam@icloud.com

Eleni was a fabulous host. Her attentiveness to any question we had began before we arrived in Greece. She made sure that our transfer to the property was taken care of and helped us with any excursion that we wanted to take. The villa was exquisite and the daily breakfast was out of this world! I have never had such a delicious traditional breakfast - way more than we ever expected. I highly recommend staying at the Antelmi Villa - it is a special retreat.

Everything you could have hoped for...

Tripadvisor - 30/6/2016 Antelmi Luxury Villa Firostefani

We booked this villa over a year ago for 9 of us (Four adults and five teenagers). The villa is located in the village of Firastephani overlooking the caldera, a short walk north from Fira. There are many local restaurant options nearby. The view is ABSOLUTELY incredible. Exactly what you dream of when you think of Santorini. The villa is amazing. Four separate rooms with ensuite baths in three. Another bath out in the courtyard by the pool. Pickup and drop off were included from the airport. Anastasia and her staff arrived every morning to prepare a breakfast feast and to clean the rooms. We stayed six nights and it was simply incredible. We had researched and setup tours for our time on the island but if you stay here, I would highly recommend that you have an idea of the types of activities you would like do and let Anastasia handle the details. She knows the local companies and can setup the tours and arrange local transportation when your legs give out from all the walking. One example. We booked a private yacht sunset cruise several months in advance only to have them cancel the day before. Anastasia was able to book us the same tour with another company on short notice. It turned out wonderful. It was my nephew's 16th birthday and she even arranged to have a cake onboard the catamaran to go with our dinner. She also made several great dinner recommendations during our stay. If you are making that once in a lifetime bucket list trip to Santorini, this is the place you want to stay!

A hidden paradise

Tripadvisor - 24/4/2016 Antelmi Luxury Houses Messaria

A hidden paradise located at Mesaria ( middle of the island) , a village full of old breathtaking mansions . Easy location , access from a path without steps . Close to the airport and as it is in the middle of the island , the perfect location to explore the beautiful island. The outside area was incredible , with many areas to sit and relax . The pool was lovely and very clean . All rooms and houses were spotless and the design magical . The service was very very good and the staff extremely welcoming . All services and breakfast were truly amazing. The perfect place to escape from the busy modern lifestyle and relax . Def recommend it.

Thank you so much for all your help!

HOMEAWAY 14 JUNE 2017 Antelmi Luxury Villa Firostefani

This property was incredible as well as the attentive staff. Each morning they prepared a fabulous poolside breakfast overlooking the beautiful view. While we were eating, Lena tidied up our rooms and Anastasia helped with restaurant and sightseeing choices. The highlight of our trip was an amazing parasail around the volcano. Eleni arranged all of the airport transfers and thankfully someone else drug our bags up and down the hill...something I had not even thought of. The rooms were pristine and comfy - they thought of everything. What a great property and staff!

Absolutely A-mazing!

HOMEAWAY 01 JUNE 2017 Antelmi Luxury Villa Firostefani

This villa is absolutely A-mazing! It is in a perfect location - just steps away from many restaurants, across the street from a parking lot if you choose to rent a vehicle, and less than 10 minutes walk to the town of Fira. I was worried that it wasn't directly in Oia or Fira, and it turned out to be absolutely perfect - we didn't have the craziness of the crowds, but had all of the amazing views, restaurants, and easy walk to the town center. The villa has the most stunning views - there literally is no need to even leave the Villa. We visited all over the island, and this Villa by far has the best views. The villa itself is perfectly set up for a large group - is spacious enough to where everyone has their own space, yet can all be together and relax. Anastasia (the host) and Lena (housekeeper) were both extremely welcoming, nice, and tended to our every need. Breakfast was served fresh every morning on the patio. Eleni (the owner) is extremely responsive and friendly to work with. This villa and experience exceeded our already extremely high expectations. I would LOVE to be back! It was hard leaving this place - we were spoiled! Thank You Antelmi Villa!

Beautiful villa with wonderful Hospitality

HOMEAWAY 13 JULY 2017 Antelmi Luxury Houses Messaria

We rented all of the units and had a great time. The villa is impeccable on the inside and outside space. Eleni went over and beyond to make our stay perfect. It is in the middle of the island right next to a beautiful church and behind a wine museum. We enjoyed being in the center because it allowed us to explore the beaches, Fira and Oia by getting transfers. The villa is very private and we also enjoyed spending time there at the pool. I highly recommend this unit for families that enjoy their space. I hope to go back to Santorini and I would rent this villa again. Ashley A.

The most beautiful home and the most accommodating host

HOMEAWAY 24 JUNE 2017 Antelmi Luxury Houses Messaria

We were greeted by Eleni (our host) the moment we arrived by the van she ordered for us. She was so sweet and answered any questions we had very thoroughly. She then gave us a tour of the amazing villa. We had 11 guests (one guest joined us after the villa was booked) and Eleni immediately set up linens for our extra guest on a small bed. I was so happy she was so accommodating. The villa is 3 separate spaces and had their own keys so although our party was together, we each still had our own private space. Everything in the home was so clean. We had every amenity that a hotel offers, but we had the luxury of having our own space and privacy. It was the best of both worlds. We were able to swim until late into the night and had our music playing. The neighbors were scarce, but the ones that were near us were very friendly. A most enjoyable amenity is the breakfast that is served family style to us each morning. It was a perfect way for us to discuss the events from the previous day and for us to plan the activities of the day. If we were to ever go to Greece again with a large group, I won't hesitate to book the same amazing villa. Vicky T.

  We stayed at this villa for 3 nights in mid May 2017 for a family reunion (10 adults and 2 toddlers) and I cannot say enough about the amazing 5* service that we received. From the airport transfers, to arranging private catamarans, tours, drivers, etc., Eleni went above and beyond to ensure everything was just perfect.

Villa Antelmi was the perfect location for my birthday celebrations which will leave long lasting memories of an amazing holiday. From the moment I booked with Eleni quite a few months earlier no question or request was too much trouble. We had 9 guests staying in the Villa and 2 other couples staying just doors away at the Belevedere Hotel and all of us were treated like family. Harry was there to great us on arrival and helped organise our transfers to Villa and hotel as well as welcoming drinks and advise on what to see and do during our stay. He booked us into OVAC restaurant on our first night and without question it simply is the most spectacular restaurant on the island and one of the best we have ever experienced. OVAC catered my birthday function at the Villa and made the evening magical. Anastasia was there every morning for breakfast preparation and checking on our requirements for the day...organising private transfers, recommending and making restaurant reservations etc. She was always just a phone call away and nothing was too much trouble for her to organise. The villa and location is breathtaking and I could not have imaged my birthday being any more perfect. Thank you all at Villa Antelmi.

Absolutely perfect for a relaxing family vacation. The pictures don't do justice to this amazing villa and the staff was so gracious and accommodating we could not have asked for more. We were a family of six and the villa could easily accommodate additional guests without sacrificing comfort. While we enjoyed a lot of activities away from the villa we were always excited to return and just enjoy the comfort and the amazing views.

An Absolute Dream

Tripadvisor - 19/7/2016

It’s hard to find the right words that describe just how fantastic our stay at Antelmi was. We were a family of eight all staying there to catch up, spend time together and to enjoy the magic that is Santorini – and magic it was. Antelmi is an incredible five-star property in what I consider to be the most perfect location. A fifteen minute incredibly scenic and idyllic walk to Thira and in a village that has plenty of restaurants and shops to offer while not being packed full of people like in the more main towns. And the sunset here at this time of year is the absolute best. The property could not have been more perfect. Stylish and cool with plenty of room, everyone had their own space and the outdoor pool area pretty much becomes the lounge room for the whole stay. The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and outside daybeds and lounges in all the right locations to catch the sun at any time of day. Waking up to that view everyday and watching the sun go down from the patio every evening is so mind blowingly amazing that you really feel like you are in a dream. From the beginning everything to do with booking the accommodation was so easy to thanks to Eleni the owner making everything happen seamlessy. Our host Anastasia was incredibly helpful and organised, greeting us when we arrived and visiting us every morning to organise breakfast and whatever we needed for the day and week ahead. She organised transfers, trips, restaurants – everything and she was a wonderful person who became a friend during our stay. Everything you want in a host. Our linen was changed daily and the villas were cleaned daily all without getting in your way as you had breakfast and started to get ready for the day. We took part in a range of activities and highly recommend a private yacht tour of the islands it’s fully catered, you enjoy some beautiful scenery and snorkelling and watching the sunset from the boat with a wine in your hand is very special. Santorini is one of those places where the magic just really gets under your skin. And staying at Antelmi is the perfect place to make it even more magic. Highly, highly recommend and would love to go back. If there is a big group of you I wouldn’t bother with car rental – the hosts organise transfers if you need to go somewhere that isn’t walking distance and I think this works well.

AMAZING!

Homeaway - 19/6/2016

Everything is perfect about this villa. From the first contact of inquiring to checkout upon departure. The location was ideal as we hiked to Oui right from our front door, walked into Fira for shopping, fantastic restaurants just steps from the villa, sunset viewing from the terrace, breakfast prepared and served on patio and quiet nights of sleep. The Villa is beautiful and the owner has decorated and equipped it perfectly. Harry and Anastasia were so delightful and accommodating, we fell in love with both of them. If I could give it more stars, I absolutely would. As this was our first time to the island, we talked about if there was another location we would have liked better. It was unanimous that this was perfect because it wasn't busy but wasn't far from busy, this has it all. You won't be disappointed with this gem.

What a superb experience at Villa Antelmi! While the space itself was stunning, it was Christina, her husband, the housekeeper and our chef that made the stay incredible. They are there for you for anything at all you need, and treat you as if you are one of their family coming into their own home. I would highly recommend staying here with a large group of friends or family. I had a few logistics questions before arriving, and now that I've been I can share that anything you need (shopping, dining, bars, etc.) are all within a 15 min walk. Don't miss staying here and enjoying Christina's wonderful hospitality.

Dream Come True

Tripadvisor - 9/10/2015

Our stay at Antelmi Villa was one of the best experiences and holidays we have ever had. My husband and I got married in Santorini and booked Antelmi Villa for us and our 6 friends that were part of our wedding party. Christina and the staff made us feel very welcome at all times, were very friendly and were always prepared to go out of their way to make our stay comfortable and memorable. The rooms and facilities at Antelmi Villa were of very high quality, the location was perfect and offered the most break taking views and a front row seat for Santorini’s amazing sunsets. The layout of the villa was perfect for our requirements, as the individual cave houses offered us our own private space, however the shared pool area gave us the opportunity to socialise and enjoy time with our friends that had come from near and far. I would highly recommend Antelmi Villa to anyone looking for an ‘out of this world’ holiday. Our experience at Antelmi Villa along with our amazing wedding was definitely a dream come true and something we will always remember.

Beyond our expectations

Tripadvisor - 24/9/2015

We stayed at Antelmi in mid-September for my daughter's wedding. We had a small group of family in attendance and we all stayed at the villa. The property is so beautiful with a magnificent view in a private and quiet location. Our rooms were beautiful and the area around the pool is perfect. We held the wedding on the patio and it was perfect for sunset photos. Christina went above and beyond with everything we needed done for the wedding. She got the bride and groom's garments steamed. She hired the most amazing woman to officiate the wedding, brought friends to sing after the ceremony in traditional Greek style and provided champagne for toasting. She brought us a wonderful breakfast each morning and attended to our every need. I only wish we could have stayed longer. I would return to this property without a second thought.

Breathtaking and Intimate Jewel

Tripadvisor - 23/9/2015

As two of the members of my daughter's wedding party at Antelmi Villa, I made none of the arrangements but was bowled over when we first arrived and took in the incredible view from this caldera-view Villa. Post cards do this property no justice. It is frankly stunning. Each of the four parties in attendance has their own luxury suite with private bath and 5-star room amenities. Beds were unbelievably comfortable and every morning our manager Christina prepared a king's breakfast which she served alfresco on the poolside patio overlooking the blue waters of Santorini's iconic caldera. Kiki saw to daily room cleaning, linens and order keeping, saving us from the smallest of domestic duties and allowing us to truly relax and enjoy this paradise. Chrstina saw to every other detail of our visit, arranging airport transfers, portering of all our luggage both to and from (some 80 steps down from the top of the ridge above us) offering us information on the best drivers, tour guides and attractions. She handled any need we presented her and with a bright, friendly smile, enjoying anything she could do for us that would enhance our stay. For the wedding held on our private patio, she and her husband surprised us with a ceremonial blessing song sung by they and their friends and followed with a toast for all to share - to our new bride's and groom's joy. We were cared for beyond our wildest expectations and made to feel like part of Christina's own family. Friendships were made and our memories of Antelmi Villa will long endure. Practical matters: Rooms were virtually soundproof. Doors and windows were of superior construction and security, even better than high-end domestic offerings. The architecture was native and beautifully so, with many unique design elements both aesthetic and functional. You have four different levels in the villa from which to look out upon the caldera and adjacent properties and geologic formations. The pool is small enough to be intimate and large enough to welcome a party of 12 or so and there is ample deck area and lounging options abound. The villa was kept impeccably clean for the duration of our visit. Night lighting made the patio and pool our default evening destination after dining out or returning from a tour. Daily, cruise liners, tender ships, ferries and sailing vessels enter the caldera silently and animate a constantly changing viewing-frame. The beauty of Antemi Villa's view cannot be overstated. Again, it is simply stunning. James R., Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA

Luxury

Tripadvisor - 1/9/2015

It's so beautiful in this villa there is the temptation not to leave it to explore the island. We were blown away by the quality. We travelled with our family and so we were 4 groups. We all had our privacy, space as the villa is separated into 4 and you do not have to pass through someone's else's space to get to your own. The kitchen and main living room is communal but we mostly congregated by the magnificent pool. Views overlook the caldera and the amazing sunset. Everyone goes to oia to see the sunset but if you stay here there really is no need to go to oia. We had breakfast cooked every morning and Christina who manages the property would go out of her way to make sure you are comfortable. You need to manage some amount of stairs to get up and down from the village which is not ideal if you have prams or people in wheelchairs or elderly who can't do stairs. But the whole place is magic and we used it as a wedding venue cause it is that nice.

Beautiful villa in a stunning setting

Tripadvisor - 25/6/2015

At risk of repeating other reviews, this is a beautiful villa! Amazing setting hanging to the edge of the caldera, with perfect sunset views from all terraces, but not on the busy cliff path, which makes a massive difference in terms of tranquility and privacy. All the rooms and terraces have been kitted out with high-quality, stylish and above all really comfortable furniture, the various daybeds are particularly hard to leave, as are the showers in the well-finished bathrooms. Christina and Themis were great - they clearly love the villa and just want you to enjoy your time there, so nothing feels like is too much bother Can't think of much more that hasn't already been said - we don't go back to places, there's too many places to see in the world, but we both agreed that we would go back to Antelmi!

Heaven.. Breathtaking views, stunning luxury villa. V private!

Tripadvisor - 3/6/2015

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

Tripadvisor - 20/5/2015

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.

Heaven on earth...

Tripadvisor - 19/6/2014

Villa Antelmi will surpass your wildest expectations. We were greeted by Hary the villa keeper and it immediately set the tone for the trip.  

We were in Hary's hands and we have never trusted anyone more. Hary works from the bottom of his heart and truly wants your experience in Santorini to be unforgettable. When Hary saw how intrigued I was with the local cuisine and how eager I was to learn, he arranged a private cooking class for our group with his dear neighbor who is a culinary legend in the local community. Hary went above and beyond for us in every dimension. Hary took us to local restaurants only insiders would know about.

We were a group of 6 and the villa was the perfect amount of space and had a great layout.

The villa had attention to every detail and nothing is missing.

The villa is private and spectacular with mind boggling views of the caldera. The villa has multiple levels and perches to maximize taking in the scene. The sunset view is the best on the island and was a magical experience to witness every evening.

We cannot wait to visit again - Villa Antelmi we will be back!

Amazing villa with amazing service

Tripadvisor - 3/7/2014

We stayed at the villas for 5 nights and we loved every moment of our stay. We are two families from Melbourne, Australia - 4 adults and 5 children in total. The Antelmi Villas are set up so that effectively there are three separate villas within the one complex. We found that the accommodation suited us perfectly as the 2 lots of parents had our own mini villa whilst the kids had a separate double storey villa that accommodated 3 downstairs and 2 upstairs. The villas are all fully air conditioned and wifi was included. The pool was great, the views are amazing. By far the best aspect of the trip was the service that is provided at these villas by the host Harry. He looks after all your needs be it restaurants, transfers, car hire or tours. He comes in every morning and helps prepare an amazing breakfast - whatever you like cooked the way you want. The kids loved the french toast aka

'fettes'- it was a as good as their grandmother makes them back home.  

If you really want a memorable and truly remarkable experience in santorini - stay at these villas and let Harry look after all your needs. This place was perfect for our 2 families.

Awesome, amazing, fabulous villa...

Tripadvisor - 11/9/2014

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....

Beyond every Expectation!

Tripadvisor - 1/10/2014

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.
