Eight hundred hotels are squeezed onto Santorini, but this private estate dangling on the volcanic caldera has blasted the competition out of the water. With a concierge, chef, trainer and masseur at your service, and a pool terrace suspended between sky and sea, you’ll feel on top of the world.
Beauty, charm, mystery, romance—any traveler privileged enough to alight on Santorini for even a day will use these words to describe it. A word they are less likely to use is privacy. Because this bewitching island, beloved for centuries by travelers the world over, has had little of this precious commodity to offer its most discerning visitors. Until now…
EROSANTORINI is Santorini’s first truly private, exclusive-use Estate, with a secluded cliffside location and spacious grounds unrivaled by any other property. Here, for the fortunate few, resides the ultimate treasure: a blissful haven tucked high and away from the bustling crowds, with glorious views and easy access to all of the activity and vibrant life for which this jewel of the Aegean is justly famed.

Highlights & Reviews
- The secluded setting, 1000 feet above the sea, is pure drama. The two-acre plot enjoys total privacy – the ultimate luxury on Santorini, where most cliffside suites are packed cheek by jowl. You could laze by the angular infinity pool all day, watching clouds and cruise ships drift by, until sunset bleeds into the horizon. Santorini’s cosmopolitan capital, Fira, is just over a mile (two kilometes) away. Postcard-pretty Oia is a precipitous nine-mile (14 km) drive. Transfers to the port (five miles/eight kilometres) or airport (three miles/five kilometres) are included in your stay.
- A cross between a five-star hotel and a fully-staffed villa, Erosantorini is run by passionate insiders who have a knack for anticipating your needs — an iced tea while you snooze on a floating sun-bed, a cashmere throw at dusk, shrimp souvlaki as you watch a movie by moonlight. Days slip by in a blissful haze of sun salutations with transcendental views, an Ayurvedic massage in the graceful spa, alfresco feasts using ingredients from the organic garden. If you can bear to venture out, these guys will show you the real Santorini — private wine tastings, tours with a local archaeologist, a catamaran cruise to hot springs.
- Four standalone bungalows provide flexible accommodation for up to 14 guests (10 adults and four children). Suites with oversized day beds, outdoor showers, and plunge pools blend inside and out with a lightness of touch. Heated floors, floating fireplaces, and hot tubs make this a very cosy off-season destination, too. Marble and concrete bathrooms come with charcoal soap, aloe vera after-sun, and bathrobes as downy as duvets. There are standard luxuries (Nespresso machines, Frette bedlinen) plus wow-factor extras (Smeg minibars, Bluetooth speakers).
- Chef Dimitris Panagiotopoulos honed his skills at Milos and two-Michelin-starred Vissani. Meals are served at a communal table by the barbeque and outdoor oven, so you can always see what’s cooking. The daily-changing menu, designed around guests’ tastes, showcases the local and seasonal: feta and white aubergine frittata, cherry tomato paste on just-baked bread, grilled fish drizzled with house-made olive oil. Santorini produces phenomenal wines and the cellar brims with exceptional Assyrtiko and Vinsanto.
