“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 December 2011

We stayed in the Zanetti villa for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon in September of this year. We were absolutely blown away with the whole look and feel of the place. Really tastefully decorated and the pool area overlooking the calderon was simply stunning.

Alex and her team really made us feel welcome and it was a lovely end to what had been a perfect honeymoon. You are pretty much left to relax and take the day at your own pace but there is always someone such as the ever present Dennis on hand to take care of your every need. The breakfasts were really nice with plenty of choice and plus you get to have it served where you wish.

Alex really made some wonderful recommendations for trips out and particularly places to eat. Thanks to her we found some really top places to eat.

It is one of the most beautiful places we have stayed and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to the island.

We'll be back.

Room Tip: All of the villa's looked beautiful to us.

I'm about to gush - and I'm not prone to gushing. Our stay at Aenaon Villas was hands down the best "hotel" experience we've ever had and it will be near impossible to top it, anywhere in the world. I use quotes around hotel because Aenaon sort of defies all the traditional categories. It's definitely not a standard hotel, it's technically a bed and breakfast, but really (in my opinion) is almost a full on all-inclusive experience.

My husband and I spent the first 5 days of our honeymoon here back in August and believe me, if we could go back and change it, we never would have left the infinity pool the entire 12 day trip. The level of service was nothing I've ever experienced before. Dennis, one of their staff (who we wanted to take with us when we left) was incredible. Without even asking, he'd anticipate maybe we'd want some delicious fresh fruit, cheese and a bottle of local wine by the pool (all complimentary). He brought beach towels, adjusted our deck chairs and umbrella - all with a friendly smile.

Breakfast was served each morning in the same manner and you got to choose from an incredible menu of fresh fruits and local dishes - served whenever and wherever you wanted. We chose to eat overlooking the Caldera every day. It's impossible to put into words how beautiful the view from there is.

Alexandra and her husband George are AMAZING proprietors and they do a fantastic job running the villas. They are attentive, passionate and make you feel like they really care about each person who stays with them. They set us up with tours and dinner reservations at some of the best places on the island. They wouldn't even leave to go to their home for the evening until everyone was back and they were sure all our needs were met ("You want more wine?" Yes, please!").

The motif is pristine white, and immaculately clean, which I loved. The villa we stayed in was lovely. We had a beautiful view of the ocean on our front porch. We didn't have a view of the Caldera from our room, but it's only steps to the amazing pool. Although we didn't see them, I sincerely doubt any of the villas had less than stellar views and accomodations.

I could go on and on (and on!). My husband and I hope to make it back for our first anniversary. You absolutely will NOT regret your stay here. You'll only be sad you have to leave!

Breathtaking views of the caldera and totally peaceful. Perfect for relaxation without mass tourism,when you want a change of pace,close enough to Oia and Thira .
The wonderful owner, Alexandra, and her staff make sure that you feel absolutely welcome.
All of the apartments/villas are designed and decorated with exquisite taste and attention to detail.
We love been high up on cliff landscapes and Aenaon Villas is simply spectacular!!!
Santorini is one of our favourite islands and Aenaon Villas is the best stay we have had....will definitely return.

It was not the first time we visited Santorini, but staying at Aenaon Villas this September made us love this place even more. The view of Caldera and the famous volcanic islands was unique, the sunset was spectacular, the villas were beautiful and perfectly clean. Our breakfast at the private veranda will remain unforgettable. The service was excellent while the presence of the well trained and always pleasant staff was very discreet. Alexandra and George made us relax the moment we arrived with their warm welcome and their friendliness.
We stayed at Elidami, the villa at the highest spot of Aenaon, which is in our opinion the best, but we had the chance to see also the other villas and each one has its own character and beauty. Their design is such that the visitor can enjoy the view of the sea at both sides of the island. There is only one thing we regret: we should have stayed longer.
My wife and I travel a lot and have visited many beautiful places but Aenaon is unique and we both agreed that it is the ideal place for a honeymoon. We recommend it to all lovers of quality and the beauty of nature.

My family and I had a wonderful and unforgettable stay in Aenaon Villas. It is even more beautiful than the pictures, the house itself and the view. We were totally shocked when standing on the terrace. Relaxing inside the hotel is enough! We had a three-bedroom apartment. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and spacious. Alexandra and her team treat us like family. Staying at Aenaon was like returning home. They can fulfill any requests from us! We stayed at two different hotels in Santorini. Although the other hotel was cheaper than Aenaon, my family and I agree that we should have stayed ONLY at Aenaon when we were in the island. We will go back Aenaon Villas, the best one in Santorini!

After staying on the Caldera four times previously, we can honestly say that Aenaon is truly unique in comparison to other, similarly priced, rated and located villas. For the following reasons:

1. Location. Aenaon has a perfect, uninterrupted sunset view (in September anyway) which you can enjoy in the privacy of this small hotel and without the massive crowds of Oia. FYI Aenaon is located practically on the boundary of Imerovigli, towards Oia. It practically stands alone, away from the tiers of other hotels built on top of each other on the cliff in the main part of Imerovigli.

2. Space. I am pretty certain that you will not find a Caldera located hotel with the amount of open space that Aenaon offers. By open space, I mean terraces (note: plural!) and a large pool area. The pool is quite generously sized for Santorini Caldera standards, and it is not overloaded with sun beds everywhere.

3. Privacy. Only 6 villas in total, which were all occupied when we were there yet it felt empty! Even when lounging by the pool all day.

4. Breakfast. Delicious, plentiful and served wherever we wished to eat on the premises.

5. Service. Brilliant. Alexandra is an amazingly warm and hospitable lady. She honestly made our stay that little bit more special. She went out of her way to ensure we were looked after, offering things that other hotels would have made us pay for. Her staff are amazing; very professional and their attention to detail was very impressive.

6. Extra touches. As you lay on the sunbeds by the pool, out comes Denis with a plate of fresh fruit. Later, as you sit on the day beds enjoying the amazing sunset, out comes Denis again with glasses of wine. In the bathroom, there are Korres toiletries – beautiful products. The pool and beach towels are huge and luxurious. The entire place is finished with nothing but the best furniture, materials, fittings and workmanship. Alexandra has not compromised on quality and takes extreme pride in her gorgeous premises.

Look no further. Pay the extra and just go - because you will truly enjoy Santorini a thousand times more by staying at Aenaon!

Thank you Alexandra for being so lovely and for creating this amazing, magical and breathtakingly beautiful place for us to enjoy. We will be back!

The views are spectacular, the services impeccable, the rooms unbelievable. There are only 6 villas so ideal for private getaways. The owner, Alexandra, is the most gracious host, and goes above and beyond to please her guests. Best Birthday/Romantic Getaway ever!!!!!!!!!!!
Alexandra even coordinated with the owners of the villa we were in the night before for transportation. We were running late for our plane the day we left and she drove us to the airport herself.

A must in santorini.

Room Tip: there are 6 villas that vary in price. Call and speak to Alexandra about needs/preferences.
