Villa Gaia

What we like most
  • The best views of any villa in our entire collection worldwide!
  • Upper terrace great for sunbathing and relaxing, and the lower terrace has a plunge pool
  • 3 bedrooms, with an additional sofa bed if required, offers flexible accommodation for up to 7 guests, great for couples or a small group of friends
Insider's Knowledge
  • Close to Skaros Rock - make lasing memories walking Skaros Rock, especially as sunset, the views are incredible!
  • The position of Villa Gaia, as with many properties along the Caldera is not private. Gaia is overlooked by other villa but the views more than compensate and of course this is to be expected when staying on the Caldera side of the island
  • A 3 minute walk to the local bakery, idea for a leisurely breakfast at the villa
Places close by
  • Walking distance to both Fira and Imervogli. Fira is only 15 minutes away and Imervogli just 5 minutes
  • Only 8km from the airport and Exo Gialos Beach is 3.5km from the villa
  • Close to a mini market, bakery and restaurants - all within walking distance

Area description

Villa Gaia is located in Imerovigli which is a village on the island of Santorini in Greece. Imerovigli is mostly famous for its beautiful sunset, that it is called "balcony to the Aegean". The villa offers breathtaking views to the Caldera, Thirassia Island and the famous volcano.

Santorini is an island that needs no introductions. On the top ten “most desired” destinations worldwide for the past ten years, almost everyone wishes to visit the island for at least one time in their lives. The only habitable caldera in the world and
famous destination for weddings, honeymoons and lovers of unique views it attracts visitors literally from all parts of the world.

Imerovigli, where the villa is located, is a village located on a high cliff with amazing view of the Caldera. A stone path beginning from Imerovigli leads to the town of Fira.

Not only is Santorini one of the most beautiful islands in the world, it is also geologically and archaeologically one of the most dramatic. The island, which is also called Thira, is shaped like an enormous pair of jaws encircling a lake filled with pure blue water. This is the core of an ancient volcano, which according to legend destroyed the lost continent of Atlantis when it blew its top about 3,600 years ago, burying the ancient city of Akrotiri (now being excavated) under tons of ash and sending out tidal waves that inundated other landmasses.

The island's two towns, Fira and Ia, are perched on the cliff tops of the highest part of the island. Ferries arrive and depart in the harbour below, and visitors walk or ride donkeys up the steep winding path to the towns. The towns are equipped with hotels, good restaurants, bars and plenty of nightlife to keep visitors happy while you relax between visiting the archaeological remains of ancient Thera, dating back to the 9th century BC, on the east side of the island. Other attractions include the excavations at Akrotiri, an archaeological museum and an 18th-century monastery. Santorini has two swimming beaches, Perissa and Kamari, both characterised by their volcanic black sand.

Wonderful Villa Gaia
Wonderful Villa Gaia

Beautiful location. Incredible views. Hard to beat. Only part that is a little awkward is that it is really a two bedroom with a separate one bedroom. Not a big problem for our group. Overall great place!

Great Location
Great Location

We were a group of 3 couples staying at Villa Gaia and it was perfect. It is such a beautiful villa in the caldera and the views are unbeatable from the villa. Breakfast outside looking out to the ocean was the best! We loved the location as we were able to walk to Fira most evenings and even walked all the way to Oia which was a workout but a great hike to do as you see so much along the way. I would highly recommend this villa.

The Views!
The Views!

What an amazing villa. The views we enjoyed from this villa were stunning. I found myself just sitting for hours watching the cruise ships and small yachts go by in the distance. The location in Imerovigli is perfect as you can walk to Fira where there are some great restaurants and shops. We will definitely be returning to Santorini and Villa Gaia!

Stunning Villa
Stunning Villa

I absolutely love Villa Gaia for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is a beautiful villa inside. It is bright and comfortable and has everything you need. The covered balcony is the best place I have ever enjoyed a morning coffee. The view is simply incredible and I found I could spend hours sitting there watching the boats go by in the distance. The ocean is so still it looks like a lake. The location of this villa is also perfect. You have restaurants and shops within a 2 minute walk and if you want to walk to Fira, it only takes about 20 minutes. If location is important to your vacation, then this is the perfect villa.

One of the Nicest Views I have ever seen

Expert Review Pic On our recent trip to Santorini we stayed at Villa Gaia. It has one of the best views of any villa in our entire collection of villas worldwide. When we arrived in Villa Gaia, I was blown away by the views from the upper terrace - it was the BEST view from any villa in Santorini!! The upper terrace is a great place to relax and sunbathe. There is a nice plunge pool on the lower terrace. We went to the local bakery the first morning which was just 3 minutes walk from the villa. We got a takeaway and had our breakfast on the terrace of the villa overlooking the Volcano. The views are simply spectacular. The only things to note is that it is not a very private villa as there are many properties along the Caldera and very few are private. Gaia is overlooked by other villas but to be honest it didn’t bother us as the views by far made up for that drawback and it’s to be expected when staying on the Caldera side. The only other thing to note is that there are steps down to the villa which are a little steep especially for young kids. The location of the villa was great close to mini market, bakery, restaurants all within walking distance and you are just 15 minutes walk from Fira. Overall, I would highly recommend Villa Gaia.
