I simply must say that we were so sad to leave Artemis Villas yesterday. We have only been home for 12 hours and are going through withdrawal for the whole experience!
Like many others, we struggled to choose accommodations on Santorini - the balance between price and setting is difficult, not to mention selecting a city to stay in. Let me first tell you that Imerovigli is the BEST place to stay in Santorini, hands down! You can see the same sunset as the famed Oia, but without the massive crowds and from the leisure of your own terrace. In fact, depending on where you would stay in Oia, the views from Imerovigli are actually better because the elevation is so high; you can actually see up and over Oia to watch the sun sink into the sea. Also, you have great restaurants and shopping without the mass chaos of Fira, and are a 5 minute scooter ride to Fira or a 10-15 minute scooter ride to all beaches, sites, and Oia. Stay in Imerovigli and get a 4-wheeler. It was the best thing we could have done!
Back to Artemis Villas...
We stayed in the Honeymoon Suite because a.) it was our honeymoon, and b.) we waited until the last minute to book our trip! It was a fantastic room that had rich details, a fabulous queen bed, and maintained a wonderful temperature. We did not need the A/C at all, and I keep the thermostat set at 72 at home so I like my cool air! Every day our rooms were thoroughly cleaned, mopped, straightened up, and had new towels waiting. I thought this was extraordinary, considering it was an apartment-style place where normally you have to beg for a new towel! The staff is very helpful and knows the island inside out. They even came to our room at 6:00am to help us trudge our suitcases up 61 stairs to catch our flight in time.
I would most definitely recommend Artemis Villas to everyone visiting Santorini. You would be hard-pressed to find such high quality service and accommodations with such an incredible view and setting for a reasonable price. It is worth twice as much as they charge, and you have the best location on the entire island. Go there and enjoy... we did!
