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 from 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 holidays. Entering the white – washed 3 bedroom Private Villa you will see the cosy living room, with the large windows pointing to the view where the Aegean Sea merges with the blue horizon. In the lounge, the built-in L-shaped sofa, the armchairs, the coffee table and the fireplace follow the distinctive traditional style of the house. Right to the living room, there is the open plan kitchen along with the dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessary utensils and appliances for your meals. The master bedroom has a king-size built-in bed with orthopaedic mattress and a spacious, coloured in blue–green, en-suite bathroom with large bathtub and the appropriate lavish equipment. The private balcony of the bedroom is a comfortable outdoor seating area which offers breathtaking view to the marvellous garden and the Aegean sea. The second bedroom is on the other side of the villa having two single built-in beds and large windows that allow the sunshine in throughout the day, as well as enjoying the same exceptional views. The third cosy loft-style bedroom on the upper floor has one double bed and is decorated with old-fashioned furniture and traditional design. There is a door leading to the roof of the villa, where you may enjoy a 360o view of the Aegean Sea, the Akrotiri village and the gardens.

Central heating system and fireplace is also available for the cold winter days, as the villa is available all year. The shared main bathroom with the traditional shower is coloured in orange tones equivalent to the natural colour of the surrounding land and inspired by the lava of the Santorini volcano. The bathroom is lavishly equipped with an old-fashioned mirror, bath towels, bathrobes, luxury toiletries, hair dryer and slippers. Moving to the exterior area, the Villa is surrounded by a beautiful garden filled with flowers and scrubs, that faces the never-ending blue of the Aegean Sea. A private built-in Jacuzzi, along with wooden sun loungers and umbrellas, lies in front of the house, for endless moments of relaxation and serenity. 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. On the right side of the villa, a shaded lounge area under a wooden pergola with comfortable seating set and BBQ 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! The 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.

Fabulous Villa
This is a very cute and well appointed villa. Photos are all completely accurate - it's gorgeous. Penny was very helpful and easy to deal with. The villa is in a quiet area of the island - not many tourists - which we loved, but definitely used the car. Can walk to great taverna up the road in Akrotiri, and down to Red Beach which has lovely restaurants, but getting around by car is best. Try Grigory's Bakery - 5 minute drive - it's awesome!

Laid back privacy
Beautiful property with outstanding views. Well maintained for a relaxing base of operations on Santorini. Well away from the maddening crowds of Oia. Some form of private transportation needed to visit the rest of the island. Walking to village of Akrotiri can be done if in reasonable physical condition.

Wonderful villa with great views
So pleased we chose to stay in Akrotiri as this was a quieter more authentic area with superb views and interesting things to do . The villa is superbly located on a hill top with a lovely garden with good indoor outdoor flow . The inside was well designed ,comfortable and beautiful . Great space to stay and appreciated the jacuzzi for cooling down. The caretaker was extremely helpful and always available giving us some excellent tips for what to see . Highly recommend this place

Superbe maison, superbe endroit !
Dès les premiers contacts avec la propriétaire, on se dit qu'on a certainement fait le bon choix. Penny est vraiment très aimable et répond gentiment à toutes les questions. À l'arrivée, Fon nous attend à l'aéroport. C'est lui qui veille sur la maison et qui nettoie le jacuzzi tous les jours. La villa est superbement bien située, avec une magnifique vue sur la mer en contrebas. Devant la maison, on trouve un beau jardin bien entretenu. Il y a plusieurs espaces pour se détendre, manger, faire des grillades... L'environnement est très calme et les hôtes bénéficient de beaucoup d'intimité. L'architecture de la villa est traditionnelle avec une touche de modernité et de belles couleurs gaies à l'intérieur. Elle est très agréable à vivre et il n'y manque vraiment rien. Tout est parfaitement propre. Au milieu du séjour, quelqu'un vient faire le ménage et changer les serviettes et les draps. Nous n'avons malheureusement pas vu cette personne pour la remercier. Nous le faisons maintenant, avec aussi un grand merci à Fon et à Penny ! La Villa Illusion est un petit joyau situé dans un endroit très agréable de l'île, loin de l'agitation et du bruit. Nous recommandons chaleureusement cette location. À nos yeux, il est totalement impossible d'être déçu.

Lovely setting walking distance from a village with traditional restaurants
This look & feel of this villa inside and out was picture perfect. It felt like we were in a very traditional part of Greece with surrounding countryside and the ability to stroll down to a good value Taverna for an evening meal. There was also a village store that sold "to die for" croissants, fruit & yoghurt to pick up in the morning for breakfast. Owner was really helpful with organising our ferry tickets and providing advise on catching the local bus. The two main bedrooms have air conditioning but the mezzanine floor bedroom are did not - so was really hot.

WOW! Amazing Villa!
This place was AMAZING!! Set up high on the hill you have fantastic views of the Mediterranean. The villa was very clean and well cared for. The nearby village provided for a unique Santorini experience with quaint shops and tavernas. We stayed with a family of 6 and this villa exceeded all of our needs! The best part is that it is away from the tourist droves in Oia and Fira. Loved our vacation here!

Amazing villa - can't fault it
Illusion Villa was the perfect base for our holiday in Akrotiri. It is clean, beautiful and full of pretty and quirky furniture and decorations. The view was stunning and a joy to wake up to. The Jacuzzi was amazing for relaxing at the end of the day, and the outdoor seating area was perfect for breakfast. I can recommend watching the sunrise on the roof, it was beautiful. Can't rate this villa highly enough, and especially Fon, who was a great help. Will definitely be back! P.S if you stay there, please feed the cats! They are delightful and love a bit of fuss.

Excellent vacation rental
This was our second time in Santorini and this time we decided to book somewhere quieter than Fira. Booking and communication with the management team was a breeze. Our host (Penny), went our her way to organise airport pickups and make sure we're comfortable throughout our stay. The property is very well maintained, clean and the Jacuzzi is a nice addition if you decide to skip the beach. All in all a very nice stay. We will definitely be coming back in the future.

Wonderful stay!! Best vacations ever!!
We had the most wonderful time last summer in Santorini!! Apart from the island itself, the villa, in which we stayed for a week, was beyond than perfect!! The location of the villa is in the southern part of Santorini in a quiet and lovely village, called Akrotiri. The villa is built and decorated traditionally and was very clean and fully-equipped! The garden along with the hot tub and the most breathtaking view became our private paradise!! The owner and the care-taker of the villa were very helpful and friendly!! They helped us with anything we needed. (info, renting a car, book a cruise etc...) Thank you very much for everything!! Highly recommend this villa.

Getting around
Bus stop is within few minutes walk from the villa. Bus services are running throughout the day towards the central bust station. From there connections are available enabling visiting other areas of the island too.

Renting Scooters and Quad-bikes may also be a good idea and a nice experience. If you are familiar with those it may worth trying.
