Top 10 Large Villas In Santorini, Greece - Updated 2023

Large Villas In Santorini
| 4 min read

The purpose of the internet would fail if I have to tell you where and what Santorini is. Everyone knows about Santorini and everyone wants that feeling this white and azure town gives. Ever since Lena from “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” climbed a hill in Greece on a mule, squealing with discomfort as every stone on those pavements gave her spine an ache, I gleed, enraptured by the crystal water and spotless walls. Ah! This village is where dreams happen! While the bougainvillea and the blue walls sound tempting, I propose to you this plan — a week-long plan that encompasses golden sunsets, fish dinners, endless pots of moussaka, dollops of tzatziki and good local wine, all made in your very own kitchen in an ideally located, large villa in Santorini. Read on… but save this later if you’re at work, you might be tempted to book your tickets right away!

1. Secret earth villas (from USD 345)

True to the color palette of Greece, these beige and ivory villas by Secret Earth is located in the area of Kamari, and all have a blue pool with a beautifully decorated placed patio. Located only minutes away from the airport, just lift your head to see a white plane soar across the blue skies. There is also a sauna, but you can also walk a couple of minutes to relax at the beach, closer to nature and island.

2. Sea and Sand (from USD 214)

A color palette that can’t escape Santorini — the hues of blue, a variance in the pool and the sea, combined with the traditional structure of the homes, is what makes it unique. The cluster of four homes offer one, three or six bedrooms, and is located in Exo Gialos, a walk away from the famous Monolithos beach. Trying seafood in the local restaurants nearby is a must!

3. Afoura Houses (from USD 54)

A beige, rock and blue combination — the famous blue door welcomes you to this charming location — Afoura Houses is actually a traditional, old winery established in 1879. It is situated in Pyrgos and will give you the experience of living like a Greek, morning to night! The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with white sheets and blue accents, while the walls expose the naked rocks, truly a thrilling combination. Just great to observe the village, live like a local islander and do absolutely nothing on the balcony where the Balkan sun seeps in gently.

A cluster of four villas with private pools and multiple bedrooms offers a panoramic view of the volcano and the Aegean sea.

Great for a couple who wants to bask in the glowing Santorini evenings in a pool, as the chill wind heats up the romance in the air!

Orange, gold, blue, white — those are the colors of Santorini that you simply have to absorb in the most luxurious way, while you bask in the warm water and let the cool winds from the Aegean sea tingle your skin. Wine and grapes are the best compliments to this holiday, and add in a platter for perfectly cooked fish, Greek style, for lunch. This is the vacation everyone dreams of and we’ve made planning the perfect holiday slightly easier! Make sure you to type colorful swimwear on the packing list to compliment the bright colors of Santorini!
