The location

Crescent-shaped Santorini is considered the precious gem of the Aegean. With its white-washed clifftop villages set against the deep blue sky, multi-colored beaches, volcanic vineyards, crystal clear waters, and world-famous sunsets, it is easy to fall under the spell of this magical, mythical island.

Your retreat home is nestled in a valley just below bustling Oia. Oia is a precious gem located high up on what is considered the balcony of Santorini, famous for its amazing views of the submerged caldera. Nestled just 5 mins from a quiet black-sand beach, and with walking distance of vineyards, churches and ruins, the retreat offers an opportunity to relax and unwind in a private setting, whilst offering the totality of a real Santorini experience.

The sublime setting of Santorini will inspire you for an incredible week of discovery.

Life offers us so many moments of pure joy, don’t lets this one pass you by.
