“Lovely quaint property”
Reviewed 21 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

My wife and I along with 3 teenagers stayed in the Restored Winery for a week in August. Jon met us as we came off the ferry. He gave us an orientation of the island and then got us settled into the Winery. Once settled he gave us a guided tour of the local area so we could find our way to the shops, tavernas and beaches. This was really invaluable as well as enjoyable. Jon then treated us to lunch where he entertained us and provided more tips on how to get the most of our week on the beautiful island of Santorini.
The winery is a really interesting property which is located in a local village a few KMs from the beaches. The road to the Winery is narrow and Jon provided advise on alternative parking. The plunge pool is lovely and there is a magnificent terrace on the roof for relaxing and BBQ'ing. Jon cooked a traditional Greek meal on our last night which was really enjoyable.
We had a great time on Santorini and this was due in part to Jon being a fantastic host/guide.

“Absolutely amazing!”
Reviewed 4 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed at Jon's Winey whilst visiting Santorini for a wedding. The photos don't do it justice on Trip Advisor. The cleanliness was outstanding. The Winery was just perfect and we couldn't have asked for anything more. I'd read all the reviews about Jon's hospitality but you have to witness it for yourself. He showed us the sites and all the best places to visit. He took us for a delicious lunch overlooking the beautiful harbour. He helped us with our luggage and drove it to and from the airport. He booked our hire car and even returned it for us. He honestly made our holiday. We only got back yesterday and we all miss him already. Our children wanted to spend all their time playing in the pool. Our teenager was happy sitting on the sun terrace with the wifi. Having all the amenities really helped and we didn't require anything else as absolutely everything has already been thought of and was there.

“This property is absolutely delightful.”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Booking this property was very easy as the service was great. Jon is a super host and is on top of everything. He is most helpful and responds quickly. If you have a need he will try to accommodate you.
The property is very spacious and a little off the beaten path but still close enough to amenities and it is very quiet. It truly is a gem.
The moment you enter the entrance you are surrounded by charming ,quaint and historical details. This is not your every day ordinary place. The unique ambiance here adds to your vacation experience. We loved it and would highly recommend it to others.
Definitely would love to come back..

Jon's restored winery villa on Santorini is simply the best villa we have ever stayed at. Brilliantly presented, characterful and charming, cannot fault it. Spacious with an excellent plunge pool in the courtyard. Plus wonderful roof space for evening meals. And Jon is a delightful host. We hope to return again someday.

“Great place for a good, relaxing holiday !”
Reviewed 19 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed in Jon's place for a week in April and had a fantastic time. There were 6 of us in the Restored Winery and we had loads of fun; BBQ in the evening looking out over Emporio and the sea. Jon was a great help and seems to know everyone on the island ! He showed us round the places to go and was the best host you could ask for. He made the introduction to Santorini very special and we shall certainly see him on our return later in the year.

The Restored Winery is a beautiful place and has a character of it's own. It really is a special place to come back to after a long day on the quad bikes or lying on the beach. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a real Santorini holiday away from the crowds of Oia and Fira.

We look forward to our next Santorini adventure !!

“Perfect Honeymoon destination”
Reviewed 2 August 2014 for a stay in September 2013

We stumbled apon Jon's restored winery when looking for a honeymoon destination. Having trawled through many many sites, searching for something unique and authentic Jon's offered everything we could have wanted and more (sleeps 6!!)

Jon met us at the airport after arranging our car hire, just so we could follow him to the winery. After giving us time to relax and recover. He called by and gave us a tour of the local area and filled us in on the best spots to eat, drink and visit. His knowledge of the island and his character are second to none, we loved having dinner with him and being in his company.

The winery is stunning, and offers a cool refuge (kept at the perfect temp) and a genuine experience of life on Santorini, based outside of any major tourist destinations, yet the wonder of the island is such that everywhere is accessible.

We particularly enjoyed time on the roof terrace, cooking BBQs, grilling Halloumi and drinking the local wine! PERFECT!!

We would really recommend this location for both couples and families alike. We'd love to come back one day!
