The villa is fantastic! A unique experience to stay in a villa built into the cliff side. Great location in the middle of the island of Thira, Santorini. Villa amenities are great, lovely terrace and pool with views across the island. Hospitality is faultless and the house manager does everything to ensure your holiday is as relaxing as it should be. Great for young families, our 9 year old loved the pool, terrace and adventure of a cave!
We are a well travelled family and have stayed in villas and houses all over the world, but this is one of our favourites.
There were 5 of us on this trip and there was more than enough space to feel very comfortable and at home.
The service is absolutely excellent. We were met from the airport, all our cases being carried for us up the pretty lane into the cave house. Panos is a lovely guy who comes every day to drop off fresh bread and provide anything you need from booking trips and restaurants to cleaning out the beautiful pool.
If we go back to Santorini, which we hope to do, we will we would definitely stay here again, great place, great location.
Beautiful traditional cave house offering a very unique experience. It has all the facilities you need and is very well maintained. The rooftop terrace was amazing, with fantastic views across the village and down to the sea, perfect for a dip in the plunge pool and even for my morning yoga session! We would highly recommend the local taverna: Metaxi-mas for delicious Greek food, plus the Mexican restaurant: Senor Zorba with very friendly staff and huge portions, not to mention the fantastic sunset.
Santorini has so many places to visit and enjoy.
A truly amazing holiday, and we always find the Greek people are super friendly!
The only downside was that the path that leads up to the villa can be quite steep in places, so just need to be aware if you have walking difficulties.
I stayed at the Cavern House with three friends who had flown over from Melbourne, Australia for a European Tour in September 2016.
Sarah was very helpful in arranging a car hire and collection to and from the airport for us. Her manager met us at the house and was very helpful in arranging trips and general advice . An additional treat was the bowl of fruit, something for lunch, water and cold beers in the fridge. Everything you could want was in the house, the decoration was very well thought out and it was spotlessly clean. There was also a BBQ in the small outside patio area. We only discovered the DVD's and CD's the day before we left.
There was a short walk up hill along the outside track to the plunge pool but it had glorious views. The house next door had their own access from the patio up some steps.
Happily on arrival we were driven up the narrow road to the house, otherwise the car park was at the bottom of the hill by the red roof church and the walk up hill in the heat is not for the faint hearted. We decided to sit outside and have salads and a drink or two of wine in the glorious evenings after a hard day site seeing in the sun but we tried the nearest restaurant and it was very good, but busy.
Don't expect many traffic directions in Santorini, and the words don't drink and drive does not seem to appear in their language judging from the amount of wine drunk at the tasting sessions at the local winery. All in all a very happy holiday. Thanks Sarah.
We booked to stay at Villa House Anthea for our holiday in Santorini and absolutely loved it. Sarah (the owner) and Iro (villa manager) were so helpful in making our holiday stress free and definitely one to remember. We visited Santorini for a wedding and the bride used to villa to get ready in and for her pre-ceremony photos. The location/accommodation was stunning!
