Aenaon Villas, Santorini, is both a contemporary and luxury residence of suites, perched on the very edge of the famous Caldera in a very secluded position set between Imerovigli and Oia.
Santorini is more than just a place for honeymooners – although we see why they flock here – it is a place of mystical proportions, jaw dropping vistas and natural beauty, where the panoramic villages cling to the steep slopes reminiscent of cream running down the sides of a cake berg.
Aenaon Villas is like a hotel, but has the luxury of being more private, born of a dream 15 years in the making, you get a sense of the exact detailing that has been bestowed – perched high on the rocks facilitates dramatic views married with a sensitivity to the landscape, customs and climate. This is no ordinary build on the edge of the Caldera.
Smooth layered white interiors reference contemporary lines of design, which are cleverly provoked by the traditional crafted elements of sun bleached woods and quarried stone – this is the signature of identity, locality and the simplicity of luxury.
Aenaon Villas has soul and captures the mystical spirit of the once charred island of Santorini using a natural tone against the unmistakable blues of the Aegean.
