Welcome to Cactus, a luxurious villa located on the slopes of the highest point of Santorini, beneath the Monastery of Profitis Ilia in Pyrgos. Part of a 4-villa complex, Cactus offers a unique blend of stylish modern living and natural surroundings, providing a peaceful and tranquil retreat for those seeking a honeymoon or an elevated Santorini experience.
Step into the outdoors and ascend the mountain, where the monastery stands proudly above and the scenic town of Perissa stretches out below. As you reach the gated terraced private estate, Cactus awaits you on the lower slopes, accessible via external steps. At the back of the villa, facing the sea, you'll find your own private terrace that truly impresses. The handcrafted infinity outdoor heated pool features a sunken lounge area, ensuring uninterrupted views from inside the villa. Relax in the hammock for a siesta, unwind on the beanbag loungers, or enjoy an al fresco meal under the sunshade at the wooden table and dining chairs, all while admiring the mesmerizing view of the sea, sky, clouds, and, on clear days, the outline of Crete on the horizon.
Step inside the villa and experience an open-plan Cycladic designer living space, adorned in bright white light and pale wood tones. The top-class furniture and fittings, along with modern amenities, create an atmosphere of luxury living. The kitchen and sitting area seamlessly blend together, and through the arch, you'll find the king-size bedroom with an anatomic mattress and a pillow menu for a perfect night's sleep. The stylish double bathroom boasts a walk-in large rain shower, double washbasin, luxury bath products, and robes & slippers, providing everything you need for a pampering and revitalizing experience.
Indulge in the feast-like breakfast served each morning, prepared using organic produce from the villa's vegetable and herb garden. Feel free to pick herbs for your own culinary adventures. Should you decide to venture beyond your private enclave, simply reach out to our knowledgeable concierge, who can guide you to the best attractions and activities on the island.
Noteworthy is the nearby Profitis Ilias Monastery, situated at the island's highest point, 567 meters above sea level, on the mountain bearing the same name. Explore the monastery's gardens and chapel, and browse the small gift shop offering local craft products that support the cloistered monks who still reside there. The panoramic views from this vantage point are truly unparalleled.
At Cactus, you will discover a sanctuary of luxury and serenity, providing an elevated Santorini experience amidst stunning natural beauty.
