“Superb stay in Santorini”
Reviewed 7 July 2014 via mobile

We stayed 4 nights at Aegagros Caldera Houses during June 2014. Our 2 bedroom villa (90m2) was an excellent choice and even more beautiful than displayed on the photos provided by management. We were overwhelmed by the beautiful view right in front of us and the whole ambiance of Aegagros Caldera Houses is just magical. The manager, Anastasia went out of her way to provide me with information and assist us with renting a car and book a boat trip. We were spoiled every morning with the most enjoyable breakfast, the freshly baked treats were out of this world. We attended the cooking class with aunt Katarina and enjoyed our own- cooked Greek meal at sun- set from our own veranda. The hospitality of our hosts and luxury of their accommodation made our stay memorable. Thank you Anastasia, aunt Katarina and staff.

Excellent accommodation, beautifully decorated, fantastic views across the caldera and a lovely owner who made us some out of this world breakfast. When I asked for Greek coffee one day, they brought me out an extra cup very morning after that. Plenty of help and advise on hand for restaurants, bus timetables and activities. A wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Apartments 1,2,3 and 5 are the ones with the best views. Apartment 6 has fabulous views on the cliff...

My family of six recently stayed in the Aegagros Caldera Houses and we couldn't have been happier. The cottage was beautiful; the linens were soft and luxurious, it was immaculate, and beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were amazing- when they would bring the basket over our mouths would start to water. Every day we got a savory treat like crostinis with eggplant and tomato and feta, a sweet like meringues with chocolate covered strawberries, and some vegetables. It was the best way to start our day. The best way to end our day was the sunsets that everyone talks about. This people are kind and gracious, and should we return to Greece, we will return.

Room Tip: The cottages are divided nicely, although fully booked, we never ran into other patrons.

Just a few hours after leaving raing and cloudy Duesseldorf airport,coming to this wonderful place and having a warm meal waiting for us in our apaprtment made us feel instantly relaxed. We could simply leave all the stress behind us and begin our week on beautiful Santorini.
Our Villa was very spacious and beautifully furnished in traditional Cycladen style.
No matter where we were during the day we always made it back in time to enjoy the sunset from our own terrace, and our wonderful hosts always had an extra surprise waiting for us in the fridge or on the table for us to enjoy with a glass of wine .
It is definitely an exclusive place here, about 200 metres above the Caldera directly on the cliffside. We could enjoy the sunshine and watch the big cruise ships coming by on their way to the harbour. A dream of a place!

Breakfast was always freshly served on the verandah every morning with wonderful home made Greek specialities...absolutely delicious.
Freshly pressed juices from apples, oranges, pomegranates...all fruit!

Staying at Aegagros Caldera Houses has been a wonderful gift after going through a long winter in Brussels. As soon as you land in Santorini your mind is sending you indications to shrug off all the negative backpack accumulated during the entire year and enjoy the experience. While arriving to Aegagros Caldera Houses you realise that your mind is flying away and you start to relax fully. We stayed at the studio overlooking the cliff and the caldera. I don't have words to describe it. I’ve never had a better wakeup call in the mornings as to look through the windows and observe the ships/cruises arriving to the port. I felt like in a life-travelling experience thinking how many writers could have been inspired by this beautiful scenery from the early morning to the late night. I could imagine Neruda, Isabel Allende, Mario Vargas Llosa, Gabriel García Marquez or Juan Ramon Jimenez getting inspired by the magnificent scenery…Not to mention the wonderful crew running this dream experience! As I walked in the houses I felt pampered by the super friendly staff. Popi and her team are always there to help you and to make sure that you are having a wonderful time. For those lovers of enjoying a nice breakfast with a super view, this is your place. Every day you will get a different variety of salty and sweet greek food as well as fresh juices and season fruits. Of course everything is Organic food, as we would call it nowadays...

In general, I would recommend staying at the Houses for the sunsets. Of course there are other places to enjoy the nice sunsets like at the Vlihada beach, Ammudi (others like Oia might be too packed). Furthermore, the sunsets at Aegagros are very special, perhaps one of the most quiet and spiritual views you could get in the island!

I was lucky enough to arrive in the middle of August when the Vendema party takes place. I step on the grapes and also observed how to produce the wine, it was a very nice experience.

If you are looking for an inspiring place where to get rid of the stress accumulated during a long winter or you are going through a difficult life experience, I really recommend you this place.
You don’t need to go to India or Asia to meditate and reflect about your life. Katherina can pamper you and give you a good treat with esthetical treatments, massages or also a Reiki experience.
BIG thank you to all the crew at Aegagros Houses!!!
Best,

You can take pictures of the view all day long, lounge on your private patio, indulge in the amazing food prepared by Anastasia or her wonderful mom, easily hop to different parts of the island, or just sleep in. Wonderful!! I can't recommend it more highly! (Family of five - 2 adults, three kids) Don't think twice.

We arrived in Aegagros Caldera Houses very early in the morning and it was as entering in a Paradise site....
It is situated in a wonderful place with a fantastic view. The house is really nice and you can see there is a deep attention to details; you feel like you are arrived in your aunt summer house.
Every house has his own terrace and tables and outside sofa were you can relax reading a book watching the sea view from the garden full of nice colored flowers.
Katerina, the owner, is a nice and wonderful person. She delighted us with her own made special breakfasts. Every day different Greek specialities to taste. She were at our disposal for any information about the island and I really thank her for her warm way to welcome us.
I really suggest to stay in Aegagros House to who want a relaxing, peaceful and outside touristic noise places.
For sure I will come back.
Thank to you, I will have great memories about Santorini island.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
have a look at our promo video on youtube (aegagros caldera houses) Aegagros Caldera Houses is composed of 5 independent houses in a 1 hectare vineyard: Two 90m2 Villas, two 55m2 houses, and a 50m2 apartment built right on the cliff of the caldera of Megalochori village. Aegagros Caldera Houses used to be our own houses where we, as a big family, used to spend our summer holidays. Therefore, each house is carefully furnished and decorated with objects and antique furniture of the cycladic tradition. The Houses have now been transformed according to the needs of our visitors, trying as always to maintain the traditional character of the island. What we want to offer our visitors is a unique holiday which cannot be found anywhere else. Our aim is to welcome you and make you feel like home. To introduce you to Greek hospitality as once described by Homer in Odyssey. As soon as you will set your foot at Aegagros Caldera Houses be prepared: because you will fall in love with every little detail that composes this villa, its location as well as the people that will take care of you. With direct onsite parking, the house is unlike most other caldera accommodations. Many of the houses located on the caldera cliffs do not have direct parking and must be accessed by climbing many steps on a footpath, a difficult prospect for weary travelers. You will appreciate the private parking just a few easy steps away from your door, with no stairs to climb. LOCATION Aegagros is built on one of the most beautiful spots of Santorini, and is surrounded by vineyards and beautiful gardens. The area where we are located is calm, quiet, with a breathtaking view to the Aegean Sea and the volcano of Santorini. Megalochori village is only 5-8 minutes walk away, a traditional and very beautiful village with its narrow streets where you can have a walk and enjoy a meal in one of the local taverns and restaurants. The beaches of Perivolos, Ag. Georgios and Vlychada are about 10-15 minutes drive away, and if you like hiking you can take an amazing walk from Aegagros all the way down to the cliff of the caldera, to the solitary beach of Christou Ta Thermi. Pyrgos village: 5 mins drive, Emporio village 8mins drive, Fira town 15mins drive and Oia 30 mins drive. SAILING EXCURSIONS We also organize daily trips to close-by islands and solitary beaches with our 18 metre sailing boat. Visit the beautiful and solitary beaches of Santorini that are approachable only by boat, visit Anafi island, enjoy the sea and the sun, an amazing excursion out in the Aegean sea and around noon either cook with your friends or family into the sailing boat or try out delicious Mediterranean food to hidden taverns that will be proposed to you by us... Keep in mind that such destinations are known only among few people that love everything about quality and personal contact! RELAX, AND OFFER YOURSELF AN EXTRA TREAT If anytime during your stay you would like to offer yourself some serious relaxation, just visit Katerina our Relaxation expert, in a special space arranged at the Aegagros premises that is made just for your inner tranquility and balance. Let yourself go over Katerina's miraculous hands: relax, inhale, exhale, and experience a rejuvenating sensation with your body and inner world. Choose among a variety of spa therapies like a Thai massage, a beauty spa, a reiki session, or even a colorful manicure or pedicure… COOKING WORKSHOPS Experience Greece from within: In two and a half hours you will taste, touch, learn and live an amazing experience through our Mediterranean Cuisine Workshop. By using organic products and vegetables from our front gardens and a selection among the finest local products of Santorini, we will share with you our precious culinary secrets that will leave your friends and family back home speechless! Come and enjoy the most creative, colorful and deliciously fun momentum of your holidays that will give you the chance to experience the 'know how' of the traditional and gourmet Cuisine of Greece. At the end of the workshop you can enjoy all these delicacies you will have prepared at one of Aegagros' beautiful terraces. Each dinner includes a starter, a main course, a desert and a bottle of our home made wine. A CULINARY JOURNEY We also provide a delicious full dinner for our guests that includes: a starter, a main course accompanied by our organic homemade wine, and a homemade all freshly made dessert. So if you wish to spend an evening over Aegagros and enjoy the sunset and the beauty of the surrounding environment let us know a day in advance and the culinary team of Aegagros will take care of all your senses! MAKE YOUR OWN ORGANIC WINE AND BRING IT BACK HOME WITH YOU One of the best periods to visit Aegagros Caldera Houses is the period of the wine harvest. Aegagros is surrounded by gardens and vineyards and every year in the middle of August we have the Vedema, the wine harvest season, a really festive period where the grapevines have given birth to their ripe, juicy, delicious grapes, and are ready to be handpicked after having been chosen one by one. And what’s more: the whole exciting and fun procedure of the wine stomping with your own bare feet, an amazing sensation accompanied by traditional songs and sounds! Of course such a fiesta always comes with a savory variety of local salty flavors and with our own chilled wine or Raki! Aegagros Villas are perfect for families or friends who are looking for a genuinely private and relaxing retreat focused on the natural beauty of Santorini, away from the hustle and bustle of crowds. ... more   less
