“Heaven on earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

If there is a heaven, this is what it looks like. Beautiful hotel with a breathtaking view. Stayed there with my wife and we both agreed it was worth every penny! The personnel was super friendly making our stay even better with lots of homemade treats every day! We had the most relaxing vacation ever and we cannot wait to go back!

We booked this hotel after having done some extensive research online. The hotel is amazing but we have all read this in all the other reviews as well. Here are some of my thoughts: The first thing i noticed is that this hotel wasnt available to book on any of the popular booking websites like booking.com or expedia. We had to go through the hotel website direct which shows that the owners are confident that their pricing is competitive compared to their competition and doesnt need travel websites to get people thru the door. The hotel offers good value for what you get considering the "to die for" location you are in and the freebies u get everyday like desert crepes, or cocktails. You also have free coffee and cake for breakfast everyday sent to your room which i thought was a great touch because i wasnt always up for a big feed first thing in the morning. The staff are all really friendly and extremely hard working. Santorini in the summer seasons can get very hot and humid which can make u lethargic but the staff here were full of energy. One guy in particular was more than happy to hoist our 23 kg suitcase on his arms, walk up or down a long flight of stairs and still have the energy to say good morning with a smile and serve coffee and cake to the other rooms without showing a shred of tiredness. If u are after beer there are 7/11 type stores behind the hotel where I bought 440 ml cans of greek beer for 1.20 euro which i thought was quite cheap. We had a room with an outdoor jacuzzi which was really cool but our room was the one by reception which meant it wasnt as private so if u know what room number it is (because i dont remember) try and avoid that one. It was a major issue tho and we still loved our room. We rented a smart car convertible just for laughs and it turned out to be a good decision. The intense heat means u wont feel like walking everywhere. Do make sure u get the car by paying more to reduce the excess tho. The saying " might is right" holds true on this island with its local bus drivers showing u no mercy so the reduced excess might be useful. We had a great time at this hotel. It totally deserves it top 5 ranking and would be back in a heartbeat if we could.

The location is breathtaking and unique. The staff and owners make sure to make justice to this beatiful corner on earth by caring for it as well as for each and every guest, providing great service and top quality breakfast, keeping the place spotless clean, etc. Well done and keep it up!

We stayed at the wonderful Artemis Villas the first week of September.
Hands down this is the best place I have ever has the pleasure to visit. Not only is Santorini an incredibly beautiful island, the service and quality of accommodation we found at Artemis Villas thanks to Chris and Angela and their wonderful team, were second to none.
We stayed in one of the junior suites for a couple of nights and then moved to a studio, as unfortunately the suite wasn't available all week. That being said, both rooms were fantastic. However having a jacuzzi on the balcony with the amazing view over the caldera was something that we didn't want to give up very easily!
As others have mentioned. the staff will bring you treats or drinks every night at sunset which is a really nice touch. The breakfasts every morning were epic and certainly kept you going for some time!
It is Chris, Angela and the team that really makes this place stand out. Nothing is too much trouble, from arranging trips, making reservations for dinner, or just general advice and a friendly chat. Each and every person we came across here made us feel truly welcome and made this trip so very special.
The hotel is located in Imerovigli, and in my opinion it's the best place to stay on the island. So much quieter than Fira and Oia which were always packed with people and constant cruises turning up. Both places are lovely and worth a visit, but we were very glad we were not staying there.
Had the most magical holiday here and did not want to leave. We will be back!

My husband and I took a trip to the Greek islands this past summer. Our last stop was Santorini and what a wonderful place to finish our trip. After much research we decided to stay at Artemis Villas. The hotel views are to die for; the best out of all the islands we visited! However what stands out the most about this place is the service. It was hands down the best level of service we have ever experienced. From the moment we checked in until we left it was truly unbelievable what level of care Chris and the entire staff provides. We will be coming back!

Just one downfall...if you are tall, showering is a bit difficult due to the slanted ceilings in the bathroom. You may want to inquire about the type of bathroom in your suite. Other than that all was perfect!

Artemis Villas was the most amazing spot for our honeymoon!! The staff is so nice and Angela & Chris were wonderful to work with. The food is also great (especially breakfast!) -- be prepared for a lot of food! We stayed in the superior suite with the jacuzzi tub (Room 115) and absolutely loved it. We didn't see the need for a "honeymoon suite" so we went with the smaller room and lucked out getting what we think was the best patio on the property. The views are spectacular and the sunset view is just as good as what you can get in Oia. The patios have unobstructed views of the water & sunset from every room & the view from the rooftop pool deck is stunning. You also get a sunset treat every night which was usually a cocktail and/or dessert. It is so peaceful & quiet on the balconies. Also, even though the hotel is not right in Fira or Oia, getting around the island is easy. The hotel is about a 7 Euro taxi ride from Fira or a 30-minute walk. The walk to Fira is absolutely breathtaking, so we recommend walking during the day and taking a taxi back at night when it is dark. It was about an 18 Euro taxi ride to Oia. We visited two beaches (Kamari & Exo Gialos) and it was easy to get to both by walking to Fira to catch a taxi to cut down on the cost a bit. Make sure you walk to Anogi for dinner -- the restaurant just behind the hotel in Imerovigli. There is no view of the Caldera, but the food and service is the best!

We stayed at the beautiful Artemis Villas from the 20th - 24th of October 2013. Angela, Chris and all the staff really made the difference and we felt more like we were part of the family than guests. Nothing was a problem and they were always smiling which goes to show how much they love what they do.
On top of this, I had told Angela that I was going to pop the question to my girlfriend. Angela organised a personal tour of the island and at the first location another staff member had gone ahead to put a bottle of champagne and meticulously placed rose buds on a section of the track that has a heart shaped rock and looks over a small church. Thankfully the answer was yes!
Every day we would get sunset drinks and delicious homemade deserts and weather forecasts for the next day.
Imerovigli is perfectly placed and just a short walk into Fira but far enough away to be tranquil at all times.
I would not hesitate to recommend Artemis Villas to anyone, it was such a lovely place and we both miss it - and the staff - already!
