A beautiful villa that is ideal for an unforgettable honeymoon or a luxurious holiday.
Beautifully restored, this large and very private villa has been renovated to a high standard yet retained its best Greek features.

Tucked away from the main square, the villa is extremely private, allowing you to enjoy the breathtaking views of the south western part of the island from the villa's stunning 100sq meter terrace which features a 2m x 2m Jacuzzi and a traditional stone barbecue and bar.

The Aegean Islands region
The Cyclades is a group of islands north of Crete of which Santorini (Thira), is perhaps the most famous. It lies between Ios and Anafi and is one of the most southerly islands in the Cyclades
Shaped by an incredible volcanic eruption some 3500 years ago, which has been responsible for many myths and legends, the island has now become the cultural capital of Greece, with extremely important archeological finds in the sites of Ancient Thira and Akrotiri. The 3500 year old ancient settlement of Akrotiri has been excavated for many years and has been closed to visitors for 5 years. It has now been re-opened for the 2011 season and is a must to visit. It is conveniently close to Megalochori.
The Santorini climate is very pleasant all year and can become extremely hot during the peak summer months, however the prevailing winds to help to make the temperature enjoyable at these times.
Megalochori (pop 350), is a delightful traditional village which boasts several vineyards, churches, village stores, bakeries, tavernas and restaurants. The Vedema Hotel is one of the most upmarket hotels on the island boasting such guests as Danny DeVito, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and is sutuated just off the main square.
The village is ideally located on the island, being on the main route to the popular beaches of Perissa and Perivolos with all the tavernas, bars, beach and water activities. The historical site of Akrotiri is nearby, as is the historic town of Pyrgos and the monastry of Profitis Elias. The winding road to the port of Athinios is 1km away just before the Santo winery with its stunning views. The main town of Fira, with its museums, art galleries,bustling shopping area, bars and restaurants is 7 km away and there is a bus service which regularly passes the village.
Kamari is another well known resort on the island and boasts many bars and restaurants. Access is better by own transport as public transport connections are difficult.
We would recommend that in order to reach most places of interest a car or scooter rental is advisable. We have some good contacts on the island that may be of help to you.

"Lovely villa in idyllic Greek village"
We had a great time on our recent trip to Santorini for my daughters wedding. The villa was absolutely perfect for us, large enough for us all and for my daughter and her bridesmaids to prepare thems… More

"The perfect retreat, private but not isolated, in a traditional Greek village."
Lovely villa with modern kitchen & bathrooms. The villa is secluded but not isolated with tavernas within a few steps. A lovely bakery is situated at the top of the lane. The owner is very helpful, as is Lainey who manages it in the owner's absence. We loved the feel of the village and although we hired a car did use the bus on one occasion (a hair raising experience!). Perhaps the taxi suggested by the helpful taverna owner would have been better. The information given verbally and left in villa was helpful and we did visit the restaurant recommended which was excellent.

"Booked for a special occasion....and it was very special indeed."
Fantastic property in a fantastic setting, owned by the most helpful people you could wish to meet. From the start of my idea to celebrate a special birthday with friends, through the booking process, (not the flight!!!!!!) to our stay at Villa Olivia, the place, the people, the weather, the village, the celebrations, the local taverna and of course to the friends who shared the experience......it was all wonderful...thank you all

"A perfect place to stay in Santorini, it met all of our expectations."
We spent a week in Villa Olivia and found it to be perfect for our family. We enjoyed the rooftop veranda and hot tub and loved the location. We were very happy that we were not in the middle of the busy tourist and cruise ship areas. But it was very conveniently located on the island though a car is highly recommended.
