Our stay was everything we could desire.Magestic postion,breath taking views perched on a ridge with the caldera oneside and the Agean the other.From the moment we booked we were made to feel like we were special. The owners were warm, welcoming and nothing was too much trouble.The attention to detail and the simple beauty they created was experienced in every aspect of the villas.

This is where our vacation began, and our only regret was that we did not stay any longer! George and Alexandra the hosts welcomed us to their amazing villas and made us feel right at home from the first minutes! They helped us plan for everything and arranged our transportation and daily activities giving us tips on where to go and what to do.
The place itself is heavenly. We stayed at Villa Zenetti and loved it! Spotless, brand new and breathtaking view over the Caldera! The pool is stunning, pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the place and the view.
The location at Imerovigli was great since it is 10 minutes by ATV from Oia and Thira, so close yet not in the middle of the crowd and noise.
Breakfast was perfect, and they make amazing Greek omlettes! Dennis made sure to have everything ready and cater for our requests around the clock! Not to forget his frappe!
If I may have one recommendation, is to have wifi available outside by the pool. Other than that, we are definitely goign back to Santorini, and mainly to go back and spend our vacation at Aenaon Villas!!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing! Villa Zenetti is on the other side, not facing Caldera and pool, but facing t...

Our stay in the villa has been phenomenal, the view, the villa, the food, the service were remarkable. 14 of us has got the entire villa and we were like friends of George and Alexandra (the owner of the villa), we have simply enjoyed every second of our stay. The villa is well-located and well-maintained. Having said that, our vacation was just too short, wish we could stay longer in Aenaon Villas, will definitely go back there!!!
Thank you George, Alexandra, Dennis, and the whole crew who have made our stay memorable!

I apologize but this review is long overdue! Simply, words cannot describe one’s experience at Aenaon (pronounced eye-non) Villas. We had the absolute pleasure of spending 4 nights / 5 days at this amazing resort this past July. The resort itself is actually situated just midway between the Fira town and Oia, making it the ideal location as each town is only about 5-10min drive (we rented a smartcar which the hotel can arrange). Its location is far enough so that you are away from all the hussle and bussle of all the tourists, but close enough so that you can easily enjoy a fun excursion into town. We chose to stay at the Villa Elidami which was just simply a joy to stay at! It offered stunning views of the Caldera and volcano and has a very private veranda which we spent countless hours relaxing and watching the beautiful sunset. I spent every morning waking up really early just to watch the sunrise and gaze at the Caldera along with the wonderful made-to-order breakfast they provide you, which is served right at your villa.

And as you probably have already seen in all the pictures posted, all the villas, and in general the resort itself, are just absolutely breathtaking. I generally sometimes have the (unfortunate) experience where resorts I previously booked looked nowhere near as they looked in their pictures as they do in person. I think Aenaon is actually the first resort I have been to, and I have been to many, in which its appearance in person completely exceeds on how it’s depicted in pictures! And with only 7 villas you definitely feel as though as you have the whole resort grounds to yourself.
I could simply go on and on about the resort and how meticulously beautiful it is, but let me get to the main reason why you should only stay here. What really separates Aenaon from all the other hotels / resorts is simply the service and attention they completely shower you with. The resort is managed by its wonderful owners, George and Alexandra in which they have one simple philosophy when it comes to servicing their guests; they simply treat you as if your family! We did not feel like we were checking into a resort but as if we were welcomed at someone’s home! They really do care for their guests and really go out of their way to make sure all their needs are taken care of. We even had a little, embarrassing mishap which Alexandra graciously took care of for us which I was continuously apologizing for until the day we left (sorry again Alexandra!). But they took care of everything for us from car rentals, boat excursions to dinner reservations…whatever you needed! From all the attention they gave you, I felt like an adopted addition in their wonderful Greek family!

Also just to quickly note, we actually spent a lot of time exploring all of Santorini. We went everywhere and all the respective “look out / ideal picture” points in all the towns and throughout the island. I can honestly say this without bias or prejudice, but Aenaon simply has the best, serene views of the Caldera and volcano…bar none! Anyway, staying at Aenaon was just an unforgettable experience that I won’t soon forget. Thanks again to George, Alexandra, their daughter Maria and to Dennis and the rest of the grounds staff for such a wonderful and memorable stay! I am just counting the days until I can make return trip back (home) to Aenon!

Room Tip: If possible, choose Villa Elidami. Definitely the best villa in the resort! It's situated at t...

An amazing holiday! We can´t say anything wrong about this place: the views were stunning - picturesque sunsets and great landscapes. The villa ( Elidami) was perfect - everything seemed like it was made for us! Every morning we were brought breakfast on the terrace and could decide what time we would eat, as well as what we´d like to eat. The owners and staff made us feel at home - it was such a friendly, warm environment - it was very difficult to leave.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a " real vacation"

We found Aenaon Villas by accident during a trip to Santorini in June 2011 and knew that it was the place for us. It is truly the perfect combination of stunning views, beautifully crafted entertaining areas, modern amenities and warm Greek hospitality to celebrate that special day. It all starts with the warm welcome from George and Alexandra (the owners). You can instantly feel the difference between someone who owns and runs their own hotel versus a chain or large resort. They really made it feel like we were guests in their home rather than paying clients. Nothing was too difficult - George was even more than happy to drive us to and from Fira on a number of occasions and they didn't charge us for half the items we ate/drank during our time there, gave us gifts when we left and let us wait for our taxi for 2 hours in a freshly made up room on the day we were checking out.

What we liked:
- The owners: The very definition of Greek hospitality.
- The staff: Denis is a rare gem, arranging furniture with near military precision and he also makes a mean frappe. The cleaning ladies were also extremely thorough (eg. cleaning windows daily), friendly and unobtrusive.
- The location: While some people might find it a bit out of the way (it's on the narrowest part of the Caldera between Oia and Imerovigli) it's quiet with spectacular views. And it gives you an excuse to rent an ATV.
- The pool: It's even better than the photo when you're in it.
- The greek salad: As soon as you arrive order one of these. You won't be disappointed.
- Wi-fi: Quick and at no extra charge. As it should be.

What we didn't like:
- The shower: While most of the villas have great bathrooms, the one in Villa Elidami is rather small and it's difficult to use without burning yourself on the hot tap.
- The rooms: The majority of the rooms are amazing with great views but there are a few areas that are quite dark and the bedroom in Villa Elidami is so low that we kept hitting our heads on it. Not all of the rooms face the Caldera, although the view out to the other side of the island is not bad either just not quite the stunning view you would expect.

Overall, an amazing place for a wedding or holiday with the right combination of stunning views, spacious outdoor areas and warm hospitality. We would highly recommend Aenaon Villas and would definitely come back again.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights and had the most wonderful time. From the moment we arrived we knew we wanted to return again, it is that good!
We arrived on the island at 06.30 and Alexandra had arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport. We arrived at the villas around 07.00, long before check in but they were more than happy to make us up some breakfast which was served overlooking the Calderon.
Alexandra and George (apologies George if that's not the correct spelling!) were so welcoming and were only to happy to do whatever they could to make our stay as amazing as possible. They organised a car rental for us, which was dropped off at the villa, and also booked a table at a restaurant in Oia for us with a perfect view of the famous Santorini sunset. Denis was just great - he made sure we always had what we needed, checking if we wanted any food/drink etc and was on hand whenever we wanted local knowledge on things to do and places to go.
I could go on about all the little things that made our stay so good - the complimentary bottle of local wine on arrival, the breakfasts brought to our veranda each morning, the amazing infinity pool with breathtaking views...Everything about the Aeneon Villas is geared to making your stay relaxing and unforgettable!
If you're heading to Santorini, you don't need to look any further than this place - as far as we're concerned there's nowhere else to stay. We'll definitely be returning in the future!
Thanks to Alexandra, George, Denis and the rest of the team!
