Description

‘Gone With The Wind’ meets ‘Captain Corelli’s Mandarin’. Villa Azura is a neoclassical mansion dating from the 1840s, perched on the edge of a romantic Greek island. Lovingly renovated to meet modern demands, this four bedroom luxury villa sits atop the cliffs of Santorini, enjoying magnificent views across the caldera. Step back in time and live the privileged life of a Greek colonial dignitary.

Shunting the traditional blue and white tones synonymous of Santorini, the villa’s pastel pink facade beams in its individuality. The pale tones continue on the luxurious day bed, perfect for relaxing on after a dip in the ocean view Jacuzzi, equally enjoyable of an evening under a starry sky. On the terrace, rich wooden decking with inviting plush sofas offers the best seats in the house for the island’s iconic sunsets. The glowing embers of magical sunsets reflect off the Aegean Sea and light up the three levels of this house from every angle.

Drift through the cool, classically furnished rooms of Villa Azura to escape the warmth of midday. The cavernous living area and traditional dining area are perfect for family get togethers, whilst outside the cushioned al fresco dining nook could be mistaken for being in a Moroccan medina. This villa certainly has an abundance of character.

Santorini is famous for its beauty and romance, with charming whitewashed houses clinging to the cliffs and blue domed churches, both of which can be admired from Villa Azura. Set in the north of the island, the villa is just a two minute stroll to the heart of the most famous town of the island, Oia. Whether you are travelling with friends or family, a stay at this island mansion house is a unique and luxurious experience, with the charming towns of the island on your doorstep waiting to be explored.

Eating

It is possible to arrange for a private chef to come during your stay at Villa Azura. Every morning a freshly made breakfast would be prepared by your dedicated chef to set you up for the day. Freshly baked bread and locally grown fruit are a treat for your tastebuds, and you can enjoy leisurely meals inside at the elegant dining table or out on one of the terraces.

You would be fully in charge of your menu. Just speak to your private chef about when you would like to eat, and any dietary preferences. Santorini’s fertile volcanic soil produces some of the most delicious fruit and vegetables, and the island is famous for its uniquely flavoursome tomatoes.

Alternatively, if you would prefer for Villa Azura to be pre-stocked with all your favourite snacks and drinks, anything from a particular fine wine to a bumper pack of nachos, it can be arranged at extra cost.

However, with some of the most romantic restaurants in Greece all on your doorstep, you could choose a different dining destination every night of your trip.

Staff

Villa staff include:
Daily housekeeping & daily preparation for breakfast
Villa concierge service

Additional staff such as a private chef, nannies or driver service can be arranged on request.

Kids

Santorini is a volcanic island and as such the terrains are hilly with dramatic cliff edges. Oia has pebbled streets and a maze of steps up and down the cliff’s edge which are not accommodating to push chairs or little legs.

For older children and teenagers, there are plenty of boat trips, water sports and other adventures to enjoy here, and beaches can be found in the south of the island.

We personally would recommend alternative Greek islands, such as Corfu or Crete, which are perfect for families with children of all ages.
