Home Away heaven

  • 5 of 5

Caver house Anthea welcomed us with open arms. The house is immaculate and imaginately decorated. Panos the villa manager was delightful and very attentive.We visited many places of interest on the island but were always grateful to return home to the tranquility of the cave house. Our stay was enhanced by several suppers at the Metaxi Mas restaurant just a short stroll away. We would love to return to this little slice of heaven. Thank you Sarah and Panos for making our holiday so special.

Unique Traditional Cave House with Stunning Views!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband booked for our Honeymoon. The house itself had everything you needed. The kitchen has all the facilities you need even a coffee maker. The outside grounds are beautiful. The house is built in a cave slightly up a mountain which meant the views across Santorini were outstanding. The terrace was a beautiful place to watch the sun rise. The house is situated in the middle of the island which meant exploring was perfect. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this house as a perfect home from home

Fantastic Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Wonderful Traditional Cave House

  • 5 of 5

We booked Cavern House Anthea for my daughter’s wedding in Santorini. We wanted a central base to co-ordinate logistics for our extended family who were arriving separately and staying all over the island. We could not have chosen better.

The perfect place to come back to and relax, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and instead of what could have been a stressful time, we had a wonderful holiday around the excitement of the wedding. My daughter and her bridesmaids got dressed and left for the wedding from the House and could not have had a more romantic choice. The House itself is perfectly laid out and equipped with a cosy and private courtyard and a sun terrace with amazing views. The House itself a perfect retreat from the heat of the day.

Sarah could not have been more helpful answering all our questions, offering to arrange car hire and making suggestions. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to see a large bowl of local fruit and provisions including some local wine! There was a folder in the villa with all the information we needed including directions to the local supermarkets, recommended restaurants and activities. Ira, our House Manager met us at the airport and helped us settle in, going through our options and answering our queries. She was easily contactable and booked the excursions we were interested in as well as organising taxis for us to the wedding venue.

The local taverna was a great recommendation and on our doorstep too. We had our ‘hen party’ dinner there on the eve of the wedding which will be very memorable for the food and location as well as the event itself.

This was our first time in Santorini and we sincerely hope not the last. We would absolutely recommend this House and the location.
