Our Story

Our Story

My family name ‘Damigos’ has been a part of Santorini for over a century. I was born and raised here and I have a true passion for the Island’s beauty and like nothing more than to share it with others. When you choose our hotel as your holiday destination, you are sharing in my heritage; Villa Ilias is the former residence of one of my ancestors, George Ilias Damigos. He must have been a very smart man because this particular location really does provide the most breath-taking of views. This is only made possible because it is perched 1,000 feet above the Aegean Sea.

More than a great location though, what truly distinguishes Villa Ilias from other hotels is our desire to see our guests as friends; friends who we would love to share a truly Greek experience with. In choosing us for your stay in Santorini, we want to ensure that you have the opportunity to share in our culture and that includes our legendary cuisine and locally produced wines.

We very much look forward to welcoming you to Villa Ilias.
