Poised on a hillside surveying the topaz Aegean Sea, Despina is an architecturally inspiring traditional Greek villa that looks as if it could have been fashioned out of snow. Generous outdoor areas and a high-quality interior finish lend it an air of laid-back luxury, blessed by breathtaking sea views. A separate entrance shields it from the road and there’s enclosed parking if you travel by car. Your accommodation includes complimentary car rental, third party insurance and unlimited mileage as well as transfers to and from the airport.
Stepping inside Despina, you’re immediately struck by its uncluttered simplicity. Modern furnishings are offset by some older pieces and the décor is tastefully subtle. The main entrance leads to a bright and spacious open-plan living and dining area. Comfortably cushioned sofas invite you to take a break from the sun and choose from a selection of movies and music. A flat-screen TV, DVD player, sound system and high-speed wireless internet access makes it easy to stay in touch with the world. If you’d rather switch off, a picture window offers bewitching views of the ever-changing ocean. Fix yourself a cool drink or snack in the fully equipped kitchen and step out onto the pool terrace.
Outside, a sculpted infinity pool mirrors the sea beyond and you can spend many hours just drifting and dreaming. Curvaceous sun loungers beckon you to take your place in the sun and an outdoor jetted tub promises to massage the tension from your shoulders. A well-stocked garden borders the villa and you are invited to help yourself to herbs and seasonal vegetables. Welcome shade can be found under the pergola, where you can cluster with friends for a leisurely lunch or tasty evening barbecue before retiring to the outdoor lounge for a nightcap. A second dining area at the other end of the terrace offers opportunities for more romantic dinners under the stars.
Three air-conditioned, simply furnished bedrooms are brightened by vibrant bedspreads and prints. Bedrooms one and two are both en-suite and are positioned on the ground floor with access to a private terrace, while a third bedroom occupies the loft. Mosaic-tiled modern bathrooms with tubs and showers complete the ensemble.
Massage treatments, yoga sessions and beauty care can all be provided at extra cost, and if you’re tempted to explore the locality you’re within walking distance of the beach, shops and nearest town.

In every way, our vacation at Despina was perfection! From planning our stay with Luxury Resort's staff (Stephanie) to our week at the residence, it was magnificent! Upon arrival, we were met by Maria, who made sure that our stay was comfortable, effortless and fun! Her advice and guidance about navigating the island and its sites was indispensable. We especially loved being on a more private part of the island, away from the busy towns. After a day of exploring, it was wonderful to return to our private paradise. On our first night, Demetri, the talented resident chef, prepared a delicious, dinner of local delicacies for our group. It was the best dinner we had during our trip! Breakfasts of homemade daily specialties was delightful on the open air patio. Simply put, Maria and her staff were more wonderful than we could have hoped for and our trip was a memory we will savour forever! We can't wait to go back and visit this perfect spot and these wonderful people!
The villa was beautifully finished and decorated, Maria was so helpful and kind, breakfast was lovely, the complimentary car so useful, daily maid service ideal If the pool and jacuzzi had been heated, it would have been perfect - unfortunately this was a negative, particularly in October as none of us wanted to venture in and would have loved to. The local beach is disappointing but the proximity to Fira for shops, restaurants and bars means there is plenty to do.
Despina experience was more than expected for all six of us. The hosts were incredibly attentive, informative, helpful, approachable etc etc. The property is immaculate and everything that we were hoping for we received, plus more. each morning we served up a beautiful spread of local baked goods, fresh squeezed juices, cold cuts, made to order omelettes , coffee and espresso! I would recommend this villa to anyone...simply perfect and only 5-10 minutes from main town on Fira
Stayed at Despina for 3 nights in August with friends and family in the 3 bedroom villa. The site of the villa was between Thira and Oia and the car given with the villa made travel easy. The villa and the surroundings were clean and well taken care of. Maria and Nikko were excellent hosts and their staff helped in organizing trips that we needed while in Santorini and were always available for any questions that we had.The morning breakfasts were excellent and they accommodated us even when we had an early morning departure. There is a very nice beach and restaurant within walking distance of the villa. Would have liked to stay there longer.
we really enjoyed our time at this villa, nice view of the ocean, a quiet and a very romantic cocoon. very well equipment, at the team support us for restaurant's booking or excursions trip. The vacation was fabulous and there were absolutely no issues from booking, to conceirge services to our actual stay. Best vacation ever.
