“private sanctury in the sunshine - perfect place to relax, away from the crouds”
Reviewed 13 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We had a wonderful time at the villa - the interior is superbly presented and the master bedroom with sunken master en-suite set into the ground is a piece of magic.

The outdoor area is a great place to relax at breakfast or enjoy a drink watching the night sky and lights flicker in the distance. There is a private, secluded sun deck area that we were not aware of at the time of booking - it is gorgeous and has comfortable sun loungers and furniture - ideal for that all over tan in privacy.

We didn't use the second bedroom - but that is also a lovely space and superbly presented - the shutters open to reveal a perfect sunrise we were told - it has a separate en-suite - it is located away from the master bedroom area - so ideal for 2 couples or family to use the space with more than adequate privacy.

Our host helped with the car hire at a very reasonable rate and we would advise any visitors to take out car hire - the island is reasonably small, but hilly and hot - so having the comfort and flexibility of the car was great.

There are two excellent - (one considered the best on the island!) within a stone’s throw from the villa (literally!) - the first night we arrived late but the restaurant next door was fantastic and accommodated us - and even gave us a plastic bottle of wine to take back for drinks on the balcony - the food was superb and extremely reasonable.

Santorini has the busy North areas - especially when multiple cruise ships are in - but the villa is a little in the South, with access to the tourist areas within 15min if that's what you want - the picturesque cliff villas and restaurants are beautiful and a must see - but it does get very busy - worth a cold beer on the terrace and people watch for a few hours.

We are generally very private and like to do our own thing - however our host Jon was absolutely fantastic and spent some time with us - on the first full day he met us to show us the local areas of interest – from historic villages, to local bars and eating places – we ended up having freshly caught fish for lunch on the pier side next to the local fishing boats – a place we would have struggled to find on our own.

We watched the sun go down one night from the lovely vantage point of the Winery on the island with Jon and a local singer playing for the crowd – we then followed him down to a superb little tavern and had dinner on the water’s edge – a piece of magic.

Jon was so helpful in booking the best tables in the restaurants and giving advice and support – but without being too pushy at all.

We only had a few days to see Santorini – and between our own excursions and following Jon on his moped we discovered much of Santorini.

We have absolutely no reservation in recommending the island, the villa and spending some time in Jon’s company – his wit and charm are only surpassed by his boyish good looks and his sun hat! An absolute pleasure to spend time with.

“Amazing Villa, Amazing Island and 1st Class Owner”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a week holiday in Santorini. We booked the villa following the good reviews we had seen online and it really did not disappoint, in fact it was much better. The villa has a great almost rustic charm to it and mini pool is very much appreciated on those warm days. It is perfectly situated to get to all parts of the island, we spent most of our time in the south as it is a lot quieter than the tourist traps of the north. As I say the villa is amazing, but the one massive star attraction is the owner Jon. He ensured we had an amazing trip, from picking us up at the airport to sorting our day trips and car/quad hire (all at cheaper rates than we could find). We could not recommend the villa more highly and will always be grateful to Jon for making the trip so special.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This villa was better than the photos show. We stayed for 5 nights after a week in Milos. Its location is perfect to get away from the crowds but not isolated from a good choice of restaurants. There are 2 within a stones throw (30 metre) that are excellent. The villa is decorated beautifully and with the pool it was hard to leave. Our twins wanted to splash in the pool whilst me and my wife just wanted to enjoy the villa and relax. We will be back. Jon Call the host goes above and beyond to help you settle in and it was a pleasure to enjoy his hospitality one evening at Santo Wines over a bottle of wine. He will give you advice and make reservations when you ask - it really helps to get the best from a few days on the island.

“Best ever”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My partner, teenage daughter and I stayed in Art Villas for 2 weeks at the start of July. The villa was perfect in every way. Really unique property, tastefully decorated and in a great location in the centre of the island. Far enough away from the crowds in Fira & Oia but close enough if you choose to go there. What really made the holiday was the hospitality of Jon Call. What a host! Thank you Jon for all the recommendations and 'little extras' that you arranged. We will never forget having Mr. Jon's mussels in Asterias restaurant in Akrotiri. The 3 of us loved every minute of our holiday in Santorini. Thanks so much. mick, Elaine & Aideen

“One of our most favourite rentals ever!”
Reviewed 12 February 2015 for a stay in August 2014

This was one of the best experiences ever renting a vacation villa. The house beautiful, with two comfortable bedrooms / bathrooms, a nice living room and a small kitchen. The terras has stunning views over Kamari village and a small pool, just the right size for cooling of. One of the reasons our experience was unforgetable was Jon, the owner. Jon met us at the ferry port, with a rental car we had also arranged through him. He also brought his own Jeep so lugguage was not a problem. Since the house was still being cleaned, Jon took us on a tour around the island and a nice lunch in one of his favourite harbor restaurants. Jon is one of the best hosts we ever met! We also went on a catamaran sailing trip he recommended which was great. He waived his commision, so we got a 20 Euro discount pp compared to the other guests! Be sure to make reservations at the Metaxsimas restaurant just up the hill. You will not regret it, probably the best restaurant on the entire island!
This is one place we hope to come back to (if Jon doesn't sell it before...).

“Amazing - perfect honeymoon location!”
Reviewed 25 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My wife and I stayed in Art Villa for 2 weeks in September for our honeymoon and I really can't speak highly enough of the villa and the island.

We booked directly with the owner, Jon, who came and met us at the airport and then guided the way to the villa in his jeep, which was useful not only in finding the place but also in helping me to get used to driving on the other side of the road! The villa is a short drive from the airport and is situated in Exo Gonia, which is a pretty little village with easy links to Kamari, Pyrgos and beyond. The location was perfect for us as honeymooners as we wanted to have some peace and quiet, but as we had a hire car we could still get to all parts of the island with ease. There also happens to be the best restaurant on the island (Metaxi Mas) literally a couple of minutes walk from the villa, and we ate there a few times over the 2 weeks.

The villa itself was immaculately presented and well equipped. The main terrace is great for sunbathing and it was perfect having the plunge pool there to cool off. The view from the terrace out across to Anafi is beautiful (and perfect for watching the sunrise) and there is complete privacy on the separate roof terrace. The kitchen is equipped with the essentials for eating in, but there are so many good tavernas on the island that we ate out almost every night.

Jon was a very welcoming host and a really great guy. When we arrived at the villa he had got us a bottle of fizz to celebrate! He took us on a brief tour of the south of island to show us the best places to eat and drink and was always happy to suggest things to do and places to go, but was never intrusive.

The island itself is stunning and we both felt Art Villa really was the perfect base for our 2 weeks. I would highly recommend it for a romantic honeymoon. We read all the traveller reviews before booking and had wondered if it would be as good as people had said, but honeslty if anything it was better! Well deserving of the 5* rating that everyone has given it.
