This look & feel of this villa inside and out was picture perfect. It felt like we were in a very traditional part of Greece with surrounding countryside and the ability to stroll down to a good value Taverna for an evening meal. There was also a village store that sold "to die for" croissants, fruit & yoghurt to pick up in the morning for breakfast.
Owner was really helpful with organising our ferry tickets and providing advise on catching the local bus. The two main bedrooms have air conditioning but the mezzanine floor bedroom are did not - so was really hot.
This place was AMAZING!! Set up high on the hill you have fantastic views of the Mediterranean. The villa was very clean and well cared for. The nearby village provided for a unique Santorini experience with quaint shops and tavernas. We stayed with a family of 6 and this villa exceeded all of our needs! The best part is that it is away from the tourist droves in Oia and Fira.
Loved our vacation here!
Illusion Villa was the perfect base for our holiday in Akrotiri. It is clean, beautiful and full of pretty and quirky furniture and decorations. The view was stunning and a joy to wake up to. The Jacuzzi was amazing for relaxing at the end of the day, and the outdoor seating area was perfect for breakfast. I can recommend watching the sunrise on the roof, it was beautiful. Can't rate this villa highly enough, and especially Fon, who was a great help. Will definitely be back!
P.S if you stay there, please feed the cats! They are delightful and love a bit of fuss.
This was our second time in Santorini and this time we decided to book somewhere quieter than Fira. Booking and communication with the management team was a breeze. Our host (Penny), went our her way to organise airport pickups and make sure we're comfortable throughout our stay.
The property is very well maintained, clean and the Jacuzzi is a nice addition if you decide to skip the beach. All in all a very nice stay. We will definitely be coming back in the future.
We had the most wonderful time last summer in Santorini!! Apart from the island itself, the villa, in which we stayed for a week, was beyond than perfect!! The location of the villa is in the southern part of Santorini in a quiet and lovely village, called Akrotiri.
The villa is built and decorated traditionally and was very clean and fully-equipped! The garden along with the hot tub and the most breathtaking view became our private paradise!!
The owner and the care-taker of the villa were very helpful and friendly!! They helped us with anything we needed. (info, renting a car, book a cruise etc...)
Thank you very much for everything!!
Highly recommend this villa.
