illusion Villa in Akrotiri, Santorini - Peaceful Location, Absolute Privacy, Stunning View with Outdoor Jacuzzi, Walking Distance to Restaurants & Shops

Illusion Villa is located on the Southern part of Santorini Island, at the historical Akrotiri. Akrotiri is one of the well-known traditional villages in Santorini; renowned for its pre-historical settlement situated there. The Archaeological site, the famous Red Beach and La Ponta Venetian Tower are within walking distance from the villa.

Illusion Villa is situated in an extremely quiet area of Akrotiri, but still very close to the centre. Mini markets and convenient stores, bakeries and grocery stores, local tavernas and restaurants with home-made dishes are all within walking distance from the villa and easy to access.

The Villa has been built according to the traditional architecture of Cyclades and combines traditional with modern design. The antique furniture inside the villa was carefully collected by the owners to remind you of the culture of the island and travel you back in time.

Luxury, Privacy and Comfort are paramount in this villa. It is ideal for couples, group of friends or families seeking for leisure moments and unforgettable holiday.

Illusion villa offers absolute privacy as it cannot be overlooked from the nearby properties, due to its carefully selected and one level up from the road placement and its very design.

Spend endless moments of relaxation and serenity at the outdoor private built-in Jacuzzi. Get a Mediterranean tan while enjoying your drink under the bright and welcoming sun or spend late night wine sessions inside the hot tub under the moonlight and the stars.

The BBQ and the comfortable seating set overlooking the unobstructed views of the Aegean Sea stimulate the guests to "savour" moments and create memories. Live the magical experience of comfort, luxury, and relaxation treating yourself a barbecue night under the starry clear sky!

Overall: Superb!

"Such a magical house!"

The house was painted full white with beautiful blue doors and windows. A small jacuzzi where you could see the Red Sea from afar. The house was equipped with all the necessities. Everything was clean and tidy. I would definitely go again.

Magical Villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED everything about the villa!! Sunrise to sunset - the villa was a wonder. Perfectly located in charming Akrotiri - getting around the island either by car, bus or walking - was a breeze. The villa is absolutely beautiful - plenty of space inside and out for the 4 of us. Everything is well-stocked and carefully thought out to maximize one's stay in Santorini. Penny and Fon were amazing to work with - easy, accommodating, great with suggestions, and very friendly. PS: I highly suggest taking Fon's local eats recommendations to heart! Thank you again for allowing us to stay in your charming home - we will carry our magical memories of Santorini within us forever.

Beautifully designed and well equipped

  • 4 of 5

Really nicely built and appointed new villa - it actually _is_ what the pictures show - a few minutes walk from the resturants and 'corner shop' in Akrotiri village centre. Well equipped for self catering; everything we needed. Helpful people too; the villa manager came to meet us at the airport so we could follow him there.

Third sleeping area is not quite so private as the main two; it's a mezzanine floor above the main living area, with less headroom and not quite such effective aircon as the other two rooms, which both have their own aircon. Still nicely set up though.

Nearest beaches are not far - and Red beach is spectacular - but a fair trek on foot, especially uphill on the way back. I'd recommend a vehicle, though that would be useful anyway for getting around the island.

Overall, though, the nicest place we've ever stayed in the mediterranean; thoroughly recommended.

Little Gem

  • 5 of 5

Perfect property in a perfect location. Quietly tucked away a clean comfortable villa with great views and sunsets. Everything you need from outdoor space with hot tub and barbecue and a walk away from so many things to see such as; beaches, Ancient Akritiri, Venetian Castle with the music man, restaurants and local shop. A car is a must and is easy to get to everywhere on the island for vineyards, Oia, Fira etc.

Illusion Villa - Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

Thankyou Thankyou Thankyou for sharing your gorgeous Villa with us. We have loved every minute of our time in Santorini . Each day exploring the beaches, villages, environment and restaurants and coming home to this little piece of Paradise. Quiet, private and all you could ever need.

Penny from enquiry to booking to pre-arrival was prompt, informative and helpful. Fon was a wonderful welcome at the airport and was an excellent help over our time, going above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect.

Your attention to detail in the Villa meant we had everything on arrival that we needed to get us started. When you've been already travelling for a while, that is really welcome.

The Villa itself is stunning and beautifully decorated. We loved everything about it from the spa, the housekeeping mid week, the generous welcome package, the garden and picking Santorini tomatoes for lunch and the use of a washing machine. The view is gorgeous and the Villa is absolutely spotless.

Akrotiri is the perfect position with a car, close to everywhere and a sweet little village with a mini mart that has every thing you could need, yummy family tavernas and a dear little gift shop.

Illusion Villa Santorini is spectacular.

Best experience ever! So accommodating and helpful

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best experience Ive had. Right from the beginning there was communication from the villa people, offering assistance with flight info and taxi info. The villa itself is beautiful looking out on a beautiful view! It was clean and roomy! The management team went above and beyond to assist us in many ways. On our arrival there was good, drink, and additional iftoamtion about the area. We wanted to rent quads for the day and they set it all up for us. We didn't even have to pick them up as they were delivered to us at the villa. The jacuzzi was really nice and it was cleane every day. I would definately come back some day!

magnificent & peaceful villa

  • 5 of 5

Firstable, I would like to thank the owner and the manager. They helped me for every services I asked, they made themselves very available and we appreciated a lot . The villa has a perfect location for relaxing holidays. The amenities, the view, the rooms & the service are amazing. The house is very very clean and looks like the pictures. Santorini wouldn't be the same without this villa.

I already recommend the house to my friends and I'm planning to go back next year!

The best Tavernas and the most beautiful beaches of the island are close to the villa.

We had so relaxing time in family. Thank you soooo much !
