Inspired by the cobalt-hued waters it shares with the Greek Isles, Santorini is a sprawling, multi-level Grecian villa, complete with a hand-packed dome and access - via a winding staircase - to the pristine beach below.

Situated on its very own stretch of coast just north of the Bazaruto Archipelago gateway town of Vilanculos, this imposing, all-white villa offers unparalleled sea-and-sand views. Surrounded by dense forest and providing guests the utmost privacy and security, its five bedrooms are ideal for multi-generational groups seeking a vacation at their own pace. The discreet and hard-working staff – including a personal chef and management couple – will ensure that your holiday runs smoothly.

Enjoy outings on Santorini’s exclusive-use boat on the stretch of turquoise water between the white-sand beach just outside your front door and the Bazaruto Archipelago in the distance. Spend time with your private skipper, fishing, water skiing or snorkelling the pristine coral reefs that teem with fascinating marine life. Those not keen on the water can undertake exciting beach picnics on nearby islands, horse riding or unique camel safaris. Back at your home-from-home, cool off in one of the two swimming pools while your chef grills freshly-caught Dorado on the barbeque and the stars slowly come out to play.

The fully air-conditioned villa sleeps a maximum of 14 guests in five beautifully-appointed en suite bedrooms. In addition to being completely secure with undercover parking, Santorini has a guarded and gated entrance. A 4x4 vehicle is available for your private use as well as a skippered boat for excursions to some of the best fishing and diving spots in the world.

The villa boasts interior and exterior living spaces, including a lounge, four dining areas and two decks with a wind-protected courtyard that is ideal for alfresco meals on sultry evenings. There is satellite television and a library in the media room as well as a computer with Internet access.

In the courtyard is the larger of two indigo swimming pools (the front deck has an ocean-facing martini pool that is the perfect spot for the grown-ups sundowners) as well a gas barbeque and pizza oven. The lower deck is ideal for private massages or spa treatments and is also a beautiful spot for romantic candlelit dinners. The villa boasts two kitchens: one for the resident chef to create your meals and the other for guests should they wish to prepare their own snacks or help themselves to a drink.

Beach picnics, horse riding, camel safaris and other activities can also be arranged by any member of the efficient villa management team.
