Pura Vida Villa – Santorini Greece villas for rent in Santorini

This gorgeous villa in Santorini has two kitchens, two private hot tubs and an incredible terrace overlooking the sea and caldera.

Perfect for couples or families this spacious villa is a great choice.

Guest review: “We just came back from an absolutely fabulous stay at this villa! We greatly enjoyed our entire time and could not be more happier with the place. (no lockdown would have been nice though!) Katerina was an absolute gem and took great care of us from before we arrived until we were on the plane back. She really did help us throughout, especially given that we were there during the lockdown.

The place is beautiful, the location serene. The pictures cannot do justice to the villa or the views. All the details of the villa, including the excellent bathrooms and bedrooms were excellent. The outdoor part of the villa, however, was absolutely surreal. Sitting in one of the two hot tubs overlooking the magical views will be something we will soon not forget. As a family of four (wife and I, and two teen boys), the villa was perfectly sized for us. We cannot recommend it enough and will certainly coming back again in the future!” – Osman, November 2020

Nicoletta Ammoudi Suite B – Santorini Greece vacation rentals

This beautiful suite in Santorini is located in the atmospheric Ammoudi bay.

Surrounded by seafood tavernas and colourful volcanic rocks, this spot is truly unique.

Recently renovated, this suite is located right on the seafront, and carved into the volcanic rock which is a feature of the suite.

With access to two terraces, one with a shared plunge pool, these suites are some of the best rated on the island.

There are only a handful of suites in the building, so if this one is booked check out availability at the others listed below:

Guest review: “Wholeheartedly recommend Nicoletta, Christina, Alexandra’s place – the listing is clearly impressive, but it manages to surpass expectations in person! We stayed here for the last 2 nights on a 7 day trip, after visiting Thera and Naxos beforehand – & what a perfect end to the trip. From the very beginning, Alexandra was immediately responsive and answering any questions that I had. We found the location perfect – slightly away from the crowds in Oia, but right within the bustling Amoudi Bay.

An array of great restaurants within 30 seconds – although would personally recommend booking Armeni Restaurant within Armeni Bay – they pick you up for free from the small port literally at the doorstep. The apartment itself is faultless – all details thought of, extremely comfortable, with that element of luxury. You’re able to cook in if preferred, and enjoy the amazing views from your private balcony (& perhaps share a beer with the local fisherman that prop up during the evening.)

Oia is accessible – as per other reviews, it’s a 15 min walk up the hill, which we found fine. There is a great cove nearby (10 min walk) where you can enjoy ocean swimming in the beautiful clear waters. Having visited Oia (& how busy it can get), it really confirmed our decision to stay here – it’s a unique blend of being accessible, in a great location, but you can still enjoy privacy if wanted. 10/10 – you won’t regret booking here.” – Tom, August 2020
