About this listing

Villa Sapho was as close to heaven on earth for the 6 of us who spent 9 full days there as I imagine you can get. Others have said being there is better than the pictures and the description and I would have to agree. Our host for the time (another Katerina) was awesome including the meals she cooked and taught us how to cook - miss her already! The family that took care of the house and grounds were Wonderful as well.
The grounds of the villa were glorious and with 6 women it was nice to have several different areas to lounge alone or in smaller gatherings as well as having the 2 outdoor tables large enough to seat all of us. The pool as perfect and many of us enjoyed time hanging out there as well as the short walk to the Black Beach where the days entertainment included watching (and a few of us participating) in the jumping off of the cliffs at the beach. The water was amazing clear and great for swimming. No shell collecting but the rock collecting was a good substitute.
Being close to the smaller town Kamari where we began to know the people in the shops and restaurants made the experience more authentic for us. Our intent was to relax and get the feel of life on a Greek island and this certainly was fulfilled. We did not rent a car but took the bus to Fira for a day (way too crowded!) and had 2 different tour guides to take us to different places on the island. Having the small tours was fabulous and gave us just enough time to see the island. The rest of the time we walked around the local town and area.
I usually don't like to return to the same vacation spot again (so much in the world to see) but I think this spot will be the exception. Maybe again in 2016?
Thanks for creating such a wonderful place for others to enjoy!
We stayed at Villa Sapfo during our European vacation. The internet pictures do not do this beautiful villa and location justice. Our party of 4 adults and 3 kids had ample room to relax both inside the villa and in the spacious grounds. Katerina was extremely helpful during the planning stages and whilst we were in Santerini. I would highly recommend Villa Sapfo.
Great experience, beautiful house with beautiful owners. Amazing , amazing, amazing . Everything about this place is wonderful.
Typically, when choosing a vacation home we get a home with a pool, or one near the beach, or one in a great location near shops and restaurants. Villa Sapfo gives you all three. The home has gorgeous private gardens with a great pool overlooking the sea which is a short 3-5 minute walk. The beach is one of the best in Santorini, clean, not too touristy, and with some great cliff diving. And the town of Kamari is also a 5 minute walk with great access to shops, restaurants, the boardwalk, ATV rentals, your bookings, and more. We have stayed at several beach / vacation homes all over the world and this one topped them all. Thank you Katerina!
We stayed at Villa Sapho for 5 night! It was incredible! The villa is perfect and the location in my opinion is the best on the island! It's 1 min walk to the beach!
We went to many areas on the island, and while Oia and Immerovigli are beautiful for sunsets, those areas are full of tourists! We had our own private heaven at villa Sapho!
Katerina was such a good hostess, she arranged anything we wanted! Highly recommend it and we are definitely all coming back!
Thank you very much for everything Katerina!
Our stay at Villa Sapfo was great. The location is perfect. Private yet a short stroll to the restaurants, shops and bars and beach at Kamari. The bus is nearby and Katerina provided pick up from the ferry and drop of at the airport. The outside terrace, pool and gardens are beautiful - we didn't want to leave.
There is lovely back path and private gate leading a short stroll down to the heavenly beach. We hope to return.
I have travelled quite a lot but have not experienced a better villa and a host .katerina was more than helpful .even though she was not present during our stay her mother Alexandra who is a wonderful lady took very good care of us. The villa itself is very luxurious and wished I had owned one like this in santorini ........
