Travellers' Choice
In a serene environment that offers privacy and refined architecture together with a unique, exclusive view of the most famous sunset in Greece, this newly modernized villa complex, built right on the edge of Oia, offers the best of both worlds: designed in traditional Cycladic style, the villas have their own heated pool and a veranda for endless, carefree relaxing hours in the sun. At the same time, being just a stroll away from the lively market at the heart of Oia, the visitor never misses out on the beat of the street. And, on those days when the market is tempting the senses with fresh choices of fruit and fish, your fully equipped kitchen back at the villa is ready to support a beautiful sunset meal at home. The residence consists of 6 detached indipendent Villas, of which 5 fixed for the visitors and 1 for the housekeeper and insists in an area of 4.800 sqm, with a garden of 3.000 sqm and the private parking of 1.200 sqm.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I cannot say enough about Katharos Villas! Francesco and Allesandro are amazing hosts. They are both responsive, kind, patient and helpful. They take hospitality to a whole new level. Francesco offered us rides into town as it is a considerable walk and made recommendations for dining, etc.

Property's Favourite Review
We LOVED our stay here and would highly recommend it. The villas are beyond spotless, flexible in design ("sofa" on 1st floor makes into a really comfortable bed (along with full kitchen + full bath) + full private bedroom, full bath and living room area downstairs AND your own PRIVATE pool with jacuzzi jets! Quiet and lovely landscaping with personal attention and care. Location is a 10 min walk to the crowded Caldera and the Oia restaurants along the sea. Amoudi Bay is very close just down the hill! The owner, Francesco, literally saved our vacation. I had a foot injury and Caldera Premium Villas had NO info or pictures regarding the treacherous, steep steps to even get to their property (I further injured my foot trying to do so). Katharos is FLAT and ACCESSIBLE!! Francesco gave us a video tour to show us how flat the property is. He and his brother are the owners and are the KINDEST, most honest and helpful humans I have ever encountered over many years of traveling in Europe and the USA! They went beyond our wildest dreams to accommodate my inability to walk very far and even arranged for me to see a doctor!! I could go on and on. There are not enough accolades! Beware of resorts in Caldera being less than honest and only wanting your money. INSTEAD, especially, if you are older or don't want to endanger your health with cliff climbing and no safety measures taken (no rails, no elevators, etc) and looking for something safe yet beautiful, book with KATHAROS!!!

OMG, I could go on forever about how lovely this place is, the sunset view, the warm pool, the villa itself. Let me summarise. The villa is gorgeous. It has all the amenities to cook, store food etc (pod coffee machine), comfy bed, great bathrooms. It's peaceful and not too far away from town The view. We watched the sunset from town with the masses, then watched it from our terrace every night after! Best of all is the team that will look after you, especially Francesco. He couldn't have been more accommodating, providing food, lifts and booking restaurants. Trust me when I say Oct is the month to go.

A super villa (one of just 6) with a small private pool. It was perfect for our family of 4. The hosts Francesco and Alessandro were charming, friendly and attentive and made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. I was grateful for their help in organising a birthday cake for a family celebration. The villa is a 15-20mins walk uphill to Oia along a very safe path - no traffic. Ammoudi Bay is 5mins downhill where there’s a handful of tavernas. Oia is a truly special town with breathtaking scenery all around. Katharos Villas are perfect if you want a relaxing break a short distance from the craziness of Oia but with all the beauty of Oia close by. Highly recommend.

The accommodation is comfortable (especially the bed) and well equipped, the air conditioning is very quiet & efficient, the outdoor space is great & loved the private pool. But the exceptional hosts are what made the stay amazing, nothing was to much trouble, from advice on where to visit, booking the best tables at amazing restaurants, lifts into Oia to complimentary bottled water, coffee capsules, a lovely welcome bowl of fruit, bread & wine. Villa cleaned daily, regular fresh bath & pool towels. Can’t recommend these villas highly enough! We will definitely be returning.

All the reviews we have read about Katharos Pool Villas were true. Nothing was too much trouble for Francesco and Alessandro. If fact, when being greeted, they would say "at your service" They arranged a boat trip (highly recommended) recommended restaurants for the sunset view. There were goodies in the fridge upon arrival. They gave us lifts to the main area when asked. The villa itself is lovely and cool and very will designed, in keeping with the unique architecture of Santorini. It's a really beautiful place and we cannot wait to come back.

Francesco is phenomenal. He is the ultimate host. From before we arrived until after we left, he took care of us. The rooms are top shelf, well equipped and well stocked. The views phenomenal, the village needs another superlative. It's a little off the beaten path so very quiet and a short easy walk up to Oia. Take note, the pools are actually pseudo hot tubs. And there is no privacy. We had crying/screaming naked children on one end, a chain smoking couple next door who filled our kitchen with smoke routinely and loud rednecks who were amazed that they could listen to Irish music in Greece (seriously). Not the host's fault. You never know who your neighbors will be in any rented lodging. However, when you had your pool to yourself, it was sublime. Highly recommend for the price. It's worth it.

Husband and wife + 3 year old. Excellent customer service, attentive and efficient but not intrusive. Villas are recently modernised and of a high quality and comfortable beds. Location outside of the hustle and bustle of Oia but near enough to walk is also convenient. Also very close, 5 minute walk, to Ammoadi bay.

We stayed for a long weekend at Kathoros Villas and had the most amazing time! Alessandro and Francesco were incredible hosts and made us feel so welcome. The service was 10/10 and I would definitely come back to stay with them again :) The villa is located a short walk down to Ammoudi bay which we went to multiple times because we loved it so much and with the view and the pool we also spent a lot of time relaxing on site. The villa is also in the perfect location to watch the sunset every night before heading into Oia. Thank you Alessandro and Francesco! Wishing you all the best!
