About this home

Delve into the soul of the caldera by staying in this beautiful and spacious villa, nestled in Armeni Bay, the hidden gem of Oia! Accessed either on foot through 300 steps, or by our private boat service. Perfect for those with an adventurous mind and energy!


The villa consists of four levels. The first level features a spacious and cosy living room and dining room, overlooking the veranda and the dazzling caldera. Furthermore, a large, modern and fully equipped kitchen is situated on the ground floor (ceramic cooking plates, oven, dishwasher and large refrigerator). The second level consists of two bathrooms and one bedroom with a king size bed facing the backyard, where there is a third bathroom, and a laundry room. On the third level, there are two bedrooms featuring king size beds and facing the upper terrace of the house, which shares magnificent views over the caldera. The fourth level of the house, is an open loft with a king size bed. The private terrace right at the seafront is perfect for lying back with a good book, sunbathing and enjoying home cooked meals. The beach in front the house is a volcanic pebble beach perfect for swimming and kayak excursions to the nearby small bays. We provide the kayaks! In addition, you could always, walk up to the village of Oia, and enjoy the local sites there, or rent a car and explore the rest of Santorini. This Villa and its location, are both very special, and are ideal for sea lovers and people who are looking to escape the pressures of fast paced living.



This tastefully renovated villa is located in a truly unique spot of the caldera, at the foot of the cliff where stands Oia. It is located in the small, and picturesque Armeni bay, which only numbers a few houses, a restaurant and a pier where private yachts dock. The villa is located only few steps away from the sparkling blue waters. What makes Armeni Bay special, is that is not accessible by car. The two options for accessing Armeni bay are the following: 1)There is a path of 300 steps, linking this small port with the centre of the village of Oia. It is a 15-20 minutes hike through steps. You would need to be reasonably fit and like exercising for these steps. 2) We have our own private boat, and captain, for transporting our guests, upon check in, check out and during their stay. We offer this service (included in the price of the house) in order to be able to accommodate guests that are not willing to use the steps. From Armeni bay, the boat will drop you off in Ammoudi bay. Ammoudi bay, is also a small bay with seafood restaurants. However it is also accessible by car, as there is a proper road. From Ammoudi bay you can either use your car/scooter/atv or take a taxi in order to explore the rest of the island. It is only a 2 minutes drive from the village of Oia. In the village of Oia, you will find a great variety of shops and restaurants.

    A rare gem on Santorini

    Nicoletta and her daughters, Alexandra and Christina, made the trip very straightforward. They arranged for a shuttle service to meet us at the airport and drive us to Ammoudi Bay where Alexandra and Christina were waiting to escort us to the boat and on to Armeni Bay about 5 minutes away. The villa was ideal for our family of 5, which included 3 teenage children. The 3 main bedrooms were air conditioned but not the bedroom located in the upper loft space, which was the only disadvantage. The house is literally only about 5 metres from the sea and although the water gets deep quickly, it is rocky to enter so we benefitted from having brought lightweight swim shoes. There is a stepped pathway from Armeni bay to Oia above, which was quite challenging but not too bad for us and so we tended to climb these steps about once a day. At other times, we simply sent the boat captain, Alex, a text message to arrange a pick-up and he took us to Ammoudi bay where you could make an easier climb to Oia by foot on the road side (or could park a rental car if you wanted). The good news was that the relative inaccessibility of Armeni Bay by foot made it much quieter for enjoying the water and gave it much more of a traditional feel than the busy tourist spots while still being very convenient. There seem to be few such spots on the Island. There are a few small supermarkets in Oia where we stocked up on provisions using backpacks and then generally took the steps back down. The kitchen was well equipped so it was easy for us to eat at home. There is a quality seafood restaurant in Armeni Bay, although we did not use it and chose to have dinner a couple of times in Oia instead. There is a good bus service from Oia to the capital, Fira, from where you could get buses to other parts of the Island. We found the buses comfortable and quite frequent, but not according to timetable! Alexandra and Christina recommended the cliff top walk from Fira back to Oia, which we completed in about 3 hours after a day in Fira. Also on their advice we took one of the several semi-private Catamaran tours on offer, and were glad we did. We would highly recommend this villa to anyone who enjoys swimming and spending time on the water (kayaks and snorkelling equipment were provided) and who feel able for at least taking the steps down.

    A little bit of paradise.

    We had the most wonderful week in this villa. The property is spotless and incredibly well equipped. The rooms were very comfortable. Having the use of the kayaks was a huge bonus, also having the use of the boat and Alex at hand to help out was fantastic and greatly appreciated. The steps up to Oia are quite hard going (mainly because they are rather uneven, but so long as you have sensible footware and are relatively fit, you'll be fine) If you take the boat to Ammoudi Bay, the steps from there are much nicer (not quite so slippery) and the trip in the boat adds to the fun. Boats of sunset searchers come in from about 4 in the afternoon and that is when the path is full of donkeys, which can make for a tricky walk, but other times it is very straightforward. The restaurant in Armeni Bay serves good fresh food and is quite reasonably priced compared to some up in Oia. Oia is stunning and definitely worth visiting but is so full of people waiting for the sunset that is was lovely to escape back down the path to our little piece of paradise! Dealing with Nicoletta and her daughters was a delight, they organised our transfers and gave us lots of local information so we could really make the most of our holiday. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone without hesitation.
