The Premises 

Aenaon Villas hotel is a series of sugar cubes on Santorini, sat in honeymoon-perfect seclusion between Imerovigli and Oia. Traditional island architecture is joined by crisp, contemporary interiors and pops of Aegean blue courtesy of windows onto the sea. The owner – a former engineer – has thrown both his heart and knowhow into the property: the villas' design cleverly maximises every inch of space; some furnishings were built by hand; and the spiralling-upwards site ensures everyone gets a view they'll reminisce about back home.

At the Hotel 

CHECK-OUT: Noon, but flexible free if there’s availability. Earliest check-in, 2pm.
Rates include breakfast (full English, Greek or Continental). You can take it on various terraces depending on which view you'd prefer.


Terraces to relax on, a small library in reception, free WiFi, and CDs and DVDs to borrow. In rooms: flatscreen TV, CD/DVD player, mini fridge and Korres bath products. Each villa feels a little different; some have a full kitchen and some have a fireplace.


Bring cliff-climbing shoes and sun-shielding hats.


To ensure the safety of our staff and guests during these unprecedented times, we have made the decision to temporarily close our hotel. We apologize for any inconvenience, please check back at a later time wheen travel restrictions in the area have lifted. We look forward to hosting you in the future when the world is a much safer and happier place. We appreciate you, thank you for understanding.


Curved edges, volcanic boulders and contemporary lighting line the freeform pool, with deck chairs, sunloungers and white parasols scattered around it. Villa Elidami has its own private plunge pool.


Enjoy the serenity with a yoga class or in-room massage, both of which can be arranged on request.
The hotel owners have really thrown themselves into this project, aside from cosseting their guests and being incredibly helpful, hearing Giorgos talk about the engineering feats involved in building a stepped stay from the ground up is really rather fascinating – bend his ear before you check out.


No-shows and early departures will be charged for the total stay.


Villa Elidami is at the complex’s summit, so pick it for peace, and its outdoor space: a veranda above the entrance, and a big terrace stretching to the front of the hotel to overlook the main lounge. There's also a private egg-shaped plunge pool, which is perfectly poised for sunset views. Its bedroom is on a loft level, and the floor breaks from the white with a bit of dark wood. The lounge downstairs has views out across Santorini to the sea on both sides. Open-plan Villa Zaneti has a bedroom tucked behind the lounge, and a fireplace by the bed.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

There’s no restaurant; breakfast will be brought to your room, or you can have it outside on your private terrace. Expect a hearty spread of pastries (our favourite was ricotta-filled), eggs and fresh juices, and a few local dishes: cheese and spinach pies, fresh feta, Grecian omelettes with locally harvested vegetables. To accompany drinks on the terrace – a crisp glass of assyrtiko wine? A G&T? – Giorgos will rustle up a plate of bruschetta, a generous Greek salad or a few scoops of ice-cream for you.

Liquid Bliss 

There’s no bar, but, as with any guesthouse worth its keep, there’s always someone on hand to mix you something up. The owner knows the local wine scene well, so something chilled, with an excellent nose can be served on-demand. Rooms have fridges to stock as you please.

Experience the Extraordinary 

Follow the cliffs and walk to Oia to shop for silver and amber jewellery in the maze of streets. The hotel can arrange sailing trips around the Cyclades, diving, hiking, wine tours and a trip to various archaelogical sites. For a wine tasting through steel and oak barrels, sweet sun-ripened tipples and sharp, pale whites hit Sigalas winery close by. Their food is excellent too.


Aenaon Villas is on sunny Santorini, just off the island’s main road that links Fira, Imerovigli and Oia.


Santorini’s Thira airport is 12 kilometres from the hotel. Fly direct to the island from London Gatwick every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday during the summer or connect from Athens in 45 minutes. The Smith24 Team can help you arrange transportation if you wish (whether you need flights or transfers); call at any time on 03333 318 506.


The hotel is six kilometres out of Imerovigli and Fira, and five kilometres from Oia. There’s free parking.


Athinios port can be reached by boat from Athens/Piraeus and other locations such as Mykonos or Crete; see The fast boat from Piraeus is three-and-a-half hours, but others are slower, so it’s definitely worth looking at the timetable.
