“Exceeded my (high) expectations”
Reviewed 3 September 2012

A frequent traveller around the Asia Pacific region, I have been spoiled by the excellent standards of accommodation available in this part of the world. My travels to Europe and beyond have therefore been disappointing - with "luxury" and "service" apparently being relative terms.

George and Alexandra at Aenaon villas however truly "get it". The design of the villas is minimalist and elegant. Its situation on a narrow isthmus overlooking both sides of Santorini is spectacular. But beauty aside it was the quality of the service that was the highlight of my recent stay.

A group of 14 (fairly) demanding and (very) noisy women with a taste for the finer things in life are probably not the easiest of guests. Certainly our group, which took over the entire complex, was probably a lot more work than the typical guest (the villa caters mostly to newly-weds, honeymooners and couples on a romantic break - and it is easy to see why.)

But the people at Aenaon took everything in their stride, booking large group dinners, conspiring to decorate the birthday girl's room while we were all out for dinner, organising quad-bikes, taxis, tour buses, transfers, girlie shopping opportunities, helping us to weigh our luggage after the inevitable overshopping, taking 14 identical photoshots with 14 different cameras - everything was done with a sense of good humour and attention to our needs, which was quite exceptional.

Dennis and his team were ever present but unobtrusive - and ready to handle any requests no matter how late we all rolled home.

What didn't I like about the place? Leaving.

Where to begin? This place is heaven on earth. Having been lucky enough to stay in quite a few luxurious places, we've become very fussy and always do a lot of research before travelling. Aeneon villas not only lived up to expectations, but well exceeded them! Everything was perfect from the first phone call to book the room (friendly and efficient), to the transfer (they arranged a rented car for us, but since we had too much luggage, they'd arranged for the car company to pick us up with an extra car, but at no extra cost!), then the arrival with the view and the beautiful reception area (WOW!), the room (Villa Marily, since we were 2 adults and 3 children aged 14, 10 and 10: perfect set up, beautifully decorated with a mix of designer pieces and local pieces of furniture), the pool, the terrace/deck with the most beautiful views over the Caldera. Everywhere you look is beauty, attention to detail, fantastic taste. But what sets this place apart from all the other beautiful places in Santorini is the tranquil, happy, designer vibe and the unbelievable service. The lovely Dennis is always around, pre-empting anything you might need (towel, drinks, food...) and delivering the most delicious breakfasts. All of the above is of course down to the fantastic owners, Alexandra and George, who make you feel like you're great friends who have come to stay with them. They make you feel totally at home and are always there to give you the best advice on beaches, restaurants (even book you the best tables!). We didn't want to leave and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: They're all amazing!

I stayed at Aenaon Villas as a special group celebrations. I arrived at reception and already felt of the vibes of pure indulgence and better things to come. Its seems George and Alexandra has been running this for a few years and they doing a wonderful job with very discreet and personal service as and when needed. They were so warm and helpful in run up to my visit and during my stay in regardless to planning activities. This is certainly a hidden gem, a luxury location for that escape . As all my friends ask ‘is the place really like the photos on the website?’, oh yes the photos are a true reflection of the place. I am already looking forwards to my next visit to Santorini.

Firstly i would like to say I have worked as long haul cabin crew for BA, I have stayed in some amazing places and experienced some incredible service.
This place is he most prefect place i have ever been. When my husband and i walked up to the pool and saw the view i nearly cried it was truly breathtaking. We were then shown our villa (Elidami, well worth the extra money, the best by far- totally private) there was not one single thing I could fault- the maintenance is suburb. This place has not only one of the best views in Santorini but the villas have been decorated with impeccable taste and to a very high standard. All of the above would have made this place totally unforgettable but the service was what made it stand out, Dennis made us feel like royalty and Alexandra and George made us feel so welcome.
I could write for hours on what an amazing experience staying here was for us but if I had to sum it up in one word PARADISE, I lay next to my husband on the first day and said to him "How could heaven be anymore perfect than this" and that sums up our experience.
All i can say is thank you so much to Alexandra, George and Dennis you gave my husband and myself a once in a life time experience that we will take with us for the rest of our lives. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: Book Elidami- totally private and THE most amazing panoramic views, I think they could easily charge...

We had an amazing experience at Aenaon, would definitely recommend staying here. The whole place has been done with a lot of thought, and great style. We stayed in 'Zaneti' and it was great. Lovely bed linen, comfy bed, and amazing sunrise views from our terrace.

Alexandra and her husband were so welcoming and very helpful with booking restaurants and recommending different things around Santorini. The staff are all very friendly and keep the place immaculate. Dennis was outstanding, he seemed to appear at just the right moment to help and was always so friendly and efficient, nothing was a problem for him to do, he really made our stay. Breakfast was a highlight, freshly made for you when you were ready, fresh fruit, juice, fantastic coffee along with a selection of eggs etc.

We did a lot of research for this trip and were so glad we could stay at Aenaon!

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...
