Desiterra Luxury Apartments in Santorini


It all started in 1998. It was at the end of the summer, when Dimitris and Vivian were leaving Santorini, after their first vacation together on the island, that a big and bright idea struck his mind; Vivian was the love of his life, he had to marry her.

The island of Santorini, has been the land of their dreams, happily ever after, offering them their most cherished moments. Yes, Vivian said yes and those guys keep hoping on the same boat again and again, together. Destination: Dreamland!

This is Desiterra Luxury Suites & Villas, a place to marvel the old and experience the new, in the most breathtaking and magical place of Greece, the island of Santorini.

"Queen of the heartbeats, and wings of the Aegean, with words that convert the infinite with fire, lava, smoke, you revealed the great lines of your destiny."

Desiterra Suites are not a simple accommodation choice. True to its name, it is a place, which offers a unique holiday experience in a serene environment  with high quality services under the exceptional Greek light and the magical view of the Aegean Sea.

It was fantastic place to stay, awesome accommodation with bespoke design, external terrace/garden and pool perfect for the family to enjoy day and night. Owners and staff are very welcoming , friendly and helpful. Great location, quiet away from main road with beautiful view of the sea and only a few minutes drive back to the main road /Fira. Well located for the delightful cool restaurant/ bar / beach- Yalos. Could write much more but simply.... perfect, excellent quality and amazing service / environment. Our toddler thoroughly enjoyed the Villa and all staff made him feel so very very welcome..... We now need to book the Villa again for next year....,


Staying at Desitera makes our stay in Santorini Memorable».
We love the privacy of the villas. Most of all our kids loved the pool which added lots of value to the place. Our host Vivian ,Dimitris and staff was very welcoming and paid attention to the smallest details in helping making our stay in Santorini a memorable one. They helped with things to do, the dont's and the must do's.,


Tranquility, Serenity and Privacy. Easy access to airport (10 mins), Thira (5 mins) and Oia (20 mins). For the quality of the villas with private pools and the excellent attentiveness of the owner and the team, this is excellent value for money.


Had a wonderful time. Would recommend to everyone.»
The villa was beautiful. Host was waiting for us to arrive and gave an overview of the complex as well as getting around in town. They ordered food for us from menus to aid in the translation. Could not put into words how beautiful this resort was. Amazing,


«One of the most enjoyable places we have stayed in the world»
The owners and staff are incredible, we were treated like family the entire stay. Our suite as well as the entire property is spotless and the private pool is crystal clear and refreshing. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable we found in Europe.


Fabulous. A much-overused description but one genuinely deserved by Desiterra»
Desiterra is a small complex of suites and villas situated within a quiet valley close to the sea and not far from Thira. All of the properties have their own small pool and are very well designed to provide a large degree of privacy. They are fitted out to a very high standard and are truly luxurious. But the best thing of all about Desiterra is the management and staff. Dimitrius and his team ( with particular mention of Anna and Maria) couldn't do enough for us. They booked taxis and restaurants and even my haircut ( which Dimitris personally drove me to). They were fantastic and clearly genuinely enjoyed looking after us. Probably the best holiday experience that we've have ever had. And we will definitely return.... soon!,


“Loved our stay at Desiterra Suites! Beautiful accommodations, close to beaches and Fira.” ,
Loved our stay at Desiterra Suites! Beautiful accommodations, close to beaches and Fira. Staff is super helpful and welcoming. A couple traveling with us accidentally left a baby car seat at a restaurant at the port and Desiterra was able to locate it and have it sent on a ferry to our final destination so that they could get it before getting on their return flights!,


The place is very nice and secluded and provide more privacy . The manager Mr.Dimitri and his wife Vivian were very helpful and cooperative and made our stay more enjoyable.,


«I love it»
Throughout the stay , staffs were truly friendly and helpful. Absolutely stunning landscape and breathtaking sunrise view. Private pool was the extra plus point for the stay, service provided beyond excellent. Highly recommended ,


A piece of heaven away from all the crowds. The owners and staffs are super friendly. They welcome you with a bottle of local wine in your room. The Villa with private pool and lounge area are perfect combination for relaxation and tranquility. You can watch the sunrise and sunset right outside your villa. It is 15 minutes drive away from Fira. We are so glad that we didnt get a hotel on the hilltop tightly squeezed together.,


First class accommodation and service. Maria at reception was available to handle our excusions and to give excellent advice for best restaurants on the island. The villa and the view we're fantastic. Having Yalos beach so close was also a plus. If relaxation and no crowds is your objective this is the place. It's nice to visit the busy town but better to come back to Desiterra.,

Simply amazing!
My wife and I recently stayed at Desiterra Suites and Villas for the 2nd part of our honeymoon and we were amazed! This place is so well kept and the views are awesome. From the moment we arrived, we were immediately greeted by the staff, in which they took care of our luggage and offered us complimentary, delicious Greek wine. The owner is also a great, humble individual and made us feel so welcome. He took care of any requests we had and the staff gave us plenty of advice in regards to the best restaurants, views & shops in Santorini. They even called in reservations for us to get the best table at a cliff side restaurant with amazing views! The Villa we stayed in was also amazing. It was definitely more than big enough for 2 people, with 2 bathrooms, 2 king size beds, a kitchen, A/C, daily housekeeping and last but not least, the private pool that comes with the Villa. The view from the Villa was beautiful with the ocean straight ahead and the well kept landscaping. We would highly recommend Desiterra Suites and Villas for anyone visiting Santorini, especially newlyweds!,

Very pleasant place, For those looking to visit and enjoy Santorini but in a peaceful and private place far from the crowds this is the perfect place. Kids highly enjoyed the swimming pool, you can order a nice breakfast delivered to your villa, beach nearby is very nice and quiet but with good services. Definitely recommend it.

What a place to be! The owner and his eloquent staff are so caring. My wife and I have been treated like Royalty since the moment we stepped in. From organizing Taxi rides and activities, to having our breakfast, lunch and dinner ordered. Dimitris' plans for the land will be extravagant, and you see the care and love that is taken care of the villas. I was surly happy to stay at such a beautiful location !, What a place to be!

This place is simply amazing.... the staff is super friendly and helpful. The hotel looks even better in real life than the pictures, very very clean outside and inside.The villa was very pampering...the location is great, right in the middle of the island and a 5 minute ride to Fira(the capital). The PERFECT place to be in Santorini !!!,


Excellent place to spend time in Santorini. After visiting crowded places in Fira and Oia, Desiterra is the best place to relax. Rooms are fully equipped with private pool, kitchenette, shower, bedroom and living room with veranda. Owner takes very good care of the guests.,

Huge thank you to Dimitris & Vivian for being such wonderful hosts - we were greeted by all of the friendky staff and a glass of wine, and lots of recommendations for the best Santorini had to offer. Desiterra is in a beautiful, peaceful location but within easy access of nearby Fira and all the attractions. This was the perfect honeymoon destination for us, our only complaint is that we did not stay for longer - we will definitely be back next year!!! Thank you. ,

Thank you Desiterra 5 stars for sure! We loved the family friendly atmosphere from the moment you arrive from the Santorini airport, only a short drive away, you welcomed us with warmth and true caring. The beauty and clean, well-kept, and owner carefully overseeing all the details are important and 5 stars all the way. Desiterra staff and owner always went the extra mile to make sure we enjoyed every moment. They ordered dinner for us, arranged breakfast to be delivered daily at various times to fit our active schedule and on the 4th surprised us with delicious bubbles, just to help us celebrate our 4th. I recommend Desiterra to everyone and will definitely come back every time in Santorini. Love the privacy, beautiful interior and exterior, the view is breathtaking and I watched the sunrise every single day! So relaxing, inspiring and total excellence. THANK YOU DESITERRA W E LOVE YOU,

Many thanks to Dimitris and Vivian for a wonderful stay in Santorini, you are most welcoming and gracious hosts.
The villa was perfect, so comfortable and well appointed. We got the peace and quiet we were looking for after a long holiday at Desiterra! I would recommend Desiterra to anyone travelling to Santorini, it's the most peaceful way to visit a busy and touristic island. I will be back!,
