Having just arrived home from the most wonderful trip to Santorini I felt compelled to write this review (not something I generally take the time to do). First and foremost Maria, her lovely family and all the staff here at Anema are some of the most welcoming, honest people to ever come across. Our friends, my partner and I (along with our two children) were always catered for. Nothing was too much trouble. When initially booking the Villa we knew it would be special, but just how special we were yet to find out. The whole process was stress free with transfers/car hire etc arranged simply for our arrival. Arriving late in to the evening can often be a hassle but the minute we were greeted by our driver there was sudden relief! When we arrived at the residence, Maria's son Christof (apologies for the spelling) greeted us with open arms and lead us to our house - even bringing a bottle of milk for our very sleepy 2 year olds! The house itself cannot be faulted and the hospitality was second to none. Each and every person we met at Anema was a true delight. Special mention (again) to Maria who treat us like family and made us feel like we had a home away from home. Every last detail was beautifully arranged, from organising lunch in the garden on our friends wedding day to sending Champagne the day after. Another special mention to Demetri whose cooking was some of the most wonderful we tasted on the island and his BBQ skills could make any man jealous!
Thank you a thousand times over for the most amazing stay. We would return in a heartbeat!

I'm actually very, very, very late in writing up this review (apologies Maria!). Anema residence in Santorini will forever be my best holiday (May 2014). We decided to take the whole family away with us and have a low-key, stress-free holiday/wedding. It was everything I could have hoped for and more...

Maria and her family were so welcoming and it was an added bonus that Anema residence was simply stunning. All the villas were occupied by our family, each beautifully decorated, modern and spacious. I would definitely recommend a trip to the beautiful town, Oia. The sunsets there are like nothing I've ever witnessed before. We've just celebrated our third wedding anniversary and we're planning on bringing the whole family back again soon!

The Anema Residence is perfect for a fantastic holiday on Santorini. The included car takes away the headache of trying to decide which car rental company to book with, and the pick up and drop off at airport also makes arriving stress free, i.e., no trying to find somewhere in the dark...
Maria and her team go out of their way to make every aspect of your stay perfect. The included breakfast is lovely and plentiful. They make a new cake every day and the carrot cake is exquisite. We stayed in Sorokos villa which was perfect. Dimitri the onsite chef without fail produces gorgeous food and made us some beautiful meals during our stay. Our time here went much to quickly and Santorini and the Anema is the perfect place for a great holiday.

This was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable Holiday we have ever been on!

Despite a 3 hour delay on the flight out and arriving at midnight, Maria was waiting for us at the villa to welcome us and give us a quick run-down on the essentials and where to get breakfast in the morning and then left us to enjoy the bottle of wine that was sat waiting for us!

Breakfast was served in a wonderful setting, overlooking the sea with a great view of the mostly uninhabited land around giving a really peaceful setting to enjoy the variety of treats on offer including a choice of eggs as well as pastries, toast, local specialities and freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee.

We stayed in Skirion which had a fantastic outdoor dining area and used the BBQ a few times during the week which I think was a pleasant surprise for Maria and the Chef but we did eat in the restaurant (same setting as breakfast) and enjoyed a fantastic meal cooked by Demetrius.

The use of the car for the week was really handy and was only a few minutes’ drive up the hill into Fira and not much further to Oia and other must see spots but it was nice to be a short distance away from the hustle and bustle and enjoy the peace and quiet. We had a walk into Vourvoulos one afternoon for a traditional Greek lunch in a local taverna so you can easily enjoy a short stroll if you want a break from driving (or a bottle of the local wine!)

If you want an extremely relaxing break in a perfect setting and to be looked after as if you are part of the family then I’d book today!!

Do you want to stay somewhere that goes over and beyond making your visit and stay on Santorini wonderful? Then this is your place! Our stay included transfer to and from the airport and a rental car. We were just minutes from anywhere we wanted to go on the island. It is removed from the hustle and bustle of all the tourist and provides privacy for your rest and relaxation. The breakfast was wonderful and Chef Demetrius dishes for lunch or dinner are delicious! I can't say enough about Maria. She greeted us upon arrival and made us feel like family! I feel as though I have a sister in Greece :) You will not be disappointed!
