Your Guide to Santorini Luxury Villas

Whitewashed cliffside villages. Iconic blue-domed churches. Awe-inspiring vistas. These are a few of the things that make Santorini one of the most romantic destinations in the world. Santorini luxury villas take this magic one step further with stays that are as enchanting as the island itself.

While the history of the island itself dates back to the Minoan civilization, the history of Santorini luxury villas dates back to the 1950s tourism boom that turned the island into the most glamorous of the Cyclades.

Today, visitors flock to Santorini to experience a true taste of the Aegean in unparalleled grandeur, and its sunsets alone make it a top honeymoon destination. Perched atop the island’s many cliffs, Santorini luxury villas further this splendour with style and sophistication.

Renting a luxury villa in Santorini is easy with Rental Escapes. First, find your travel dates and party size. From there, your Rental Escapes villa specialist will present you with the best available Santorini luxury villas. After, your concierge customizes your trip, including transportation, excursions, tours, reservations, chef service, boat charters, and more.
