the anema residence

My name is Maria Renieri and my husband is Nikolas Zafiriou. We have 3 children: Panos, Christos and Georgia.
We welcome you to our property offering something unique in Santorini, both in terms of style, island architecture, location, and the real feeling of family atmosphere.
Our villas are built in the traditional way, using materials available in Santorini and other Aegean islands, such as marble, black stone, granite stone, and wood.

Our property is situated in a peaceful countryside location, surrounded by vineyards and farms, offering a tranquil setting perfect for couples, families, or groups of friends to relax and unwind, whilst experiencing the more traditional side to the island. Enjoy your vacation with us, feel like home, whilst overlooking the Aegean sea, and the islands of Anafi and Amorgos.

Whilst the caldera offers the view of the sunset, it is the view of the sunrise that you will see from this side of the island! It is simply awe inspiring to watch the sun rising from the sea to meet the challenge of a new day!

Our residence is a stone's throw away from the black pebble beach of Vourvoulos, comprising of a quiet seafront and small port used by local fisherman. There is also a beachside taverna offering fresh fish and local dishes. In the village of Vourvoulos there are 2 more traditional taverns.

All properties are offered with the highest quality of finishes, luxury bath products, and fine bedding made from all natural materials by CocoMat.

our family philosophy 

We are not a hotel. We call it "a home away from home".
Our vision is to create a complex of villas with private pools, and to welcome our guests as family, to experience the real Greek hospitality that we have inherited from our families. Our love of nature, our history, and our culture distinguish our values.
Join us for a glass of wine, become part of the family, taking part in open BBQ's and celebrations. Or enjoy your villa with privacy. The choice is yours.

In our gardens you will find fruit and olive trees, fresh herbs, Santorinian tomato plants, white eggplants, local cucumbers, and other seasonal vegetables. All of these are available to you, to use as you prepare that special salad to go with the meat cooking on the BBQ.

We will also be happy to introduce you to the Santorini local products, including wine, “chloro” goat cheese, fava beans, cherry tomatoes and our homemade sweets.
Enjoy our daily homemade breakfast prepared by our family, using several local products. Don’t forget to try our omelets with fresh local organic eggs.
