Guestbook comments from the manager

Villa Panoramica is magnificent! Upon our arrival we were greeted by Mr. Mihalis who was a wonderful host. He gave us a detailed overview of the house and was available for our every need. I can't tell you enough how awesome this man is! The house could not have been more perfect! Very private, yet the location was a short walk to the adjacent towns. From the immaculate accommodations, to the numerous amenities and breathtaking views from the balcony; we found heaven on earth. I would have been happy if we never even left the villa for the week! Panoramica definitely did not disappoint!

Great view terrace but could use a remodel

  • 3 of 5

Great terrace with incredible view! Villa itself could use a lot of updating! Furniture is old & kitchen had very little functionality. Dishes & silverware were dirty but dishwasher looked worse. Bathrooms could definitely be updated.

The property has a gorgeous view of the caldera. You never have to leave to view the sunsets from anywhere else. The house is a little old and could use a little uplifting, newer furniture etc... but overall it was a perfect spot. The caretaker of the house Mr. Mihalis was always friendly and accomodating. The house is centrally located and accessible. Definitely recommend!

A Slice Of Paradise !

  • 5 of 5

Literally a God send ! Nothing can prepare you for this quiet, isolated wonder of a panorama. Our Family of 9 organized a special "come-together" (parents, children and grand children...) In a fantastic Island of the Cyclades, Santorini. In short , this house is a gem we're returning again this year : "Villa Panoramica" Is set on 3 quiet tiered levels all overlooking the wondrous Caldera .

Our stay last year was the last week in July 19, 2015 and we are now converging again from different directions and cities , namely London, Rome and foregoing our family home in Tuscany yet again for this truly unique slice of Paradise!

The Villa is spacious, very beautiful inside, with extraordinary views constantly reinventing itself with the changing light. Inside area and Bedrooms, large, confortable, tastlely decorated. Everything is in a high level of cleaning and functioning, with an equipped kitchen. Sublime restaurants at walking distance but I warn you , It's hard to leave this place ! And the reason were coming back.

We unreservedly recommend this Villa

This Villa is Magical and Special... A TRUE FIND !!!

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying... What an absolute slice of heaven !!!

I will try not to gush too much for fear of being long winded.

This villa is what Rick Steves would call a "FIND".

Anyone who has been to Santorini knows how beautiful this place is.. how special and magical.

Unfortunately, the crowds have made it not so private and

quiet like in times past.

Here at the villa it does seem like times past !!!!

The villa is set apart from the herds of persons passing your hotel sitting on tiny little balconies on top of each other

paying premium costs.

The villa has a ginormous deck running the length of the villa. Inside is home. All the comforts of home you left behind. The housekeeper/manager, Mr. MAHALIS is our icing on the cake. One of the most darling persons you will ever meet. He is this wonder "old man by the sea". He becomes part of your family and is so special.

This is our third season staying at the villa and each time we leave ........I am sad to say goodbye to this dear man that has

become a part of us. I want to fold him up... put him in my pocket and bring him home..

I have hesitated to write this review because just like when Rick Steves gushes about a place .. next thing you know..

It's not a "find" anymore and crowds take over and maybe I won't have the opportunity to come to the villa again because it will become booked up. Now everyone else has found how truly special this villa really is.

It's a very clean house and furnished very tastefully.The view is extraordinarily breathtaking. One feels like one is conversing with the gods. The house is very comfortable and spacious. The verandas are a great expanse...plenty of room to talk with the gods. Simultaneously the property is very quiet and there is a real sense of a, majestic peace. And then a few meters away you can reach any shops, cafe's or restaurants that you need, but all in the quaint greek village with it's cobbled stones. I really enjoyed our stay and would come back without any second thoughts. Probably will.

Car: not necessary

Follow Directions for Firostefani ( after Booking you receive the Owners detailed "INSTRUCTION FOR THE (TAXI) DRIVER", so you can park on the Main Road, at 25 meters before the Entrance Door of the Villa.

The house lies between the main town of Fira and Imerovigli, in residential Firostefani area.

The 16th century monastery of St. Nicholas is an important landmark.

A marked footpath ,only 25m walking distance (NO STEPS at all), leads from the Main Road (where you stop your Taxi or park your Car) to the Villa. No steps at all to the Entrance of the Villa.

A unique Panoramic View ( 180* ) all around the Caldera. No other House in front of it : the Villa is litterally hanging over the famous Caldera, at a High of 300 meters !
