Cactus is a luxury Santorini villa on slopes of the highest point of the island, under the Monastery of Profitis Ilias in Pyrgos. 1 of 4 exclusive units, set in the private grounds of an extensive terraced estate, on the lower level. This is a retreat of peace and tranquility, of local plants and trees, of stylish modern living blended with nature, for those who want to enjoy their honeymoon and Santorini from above.
As you drive up the side of the mountain and see the monastery above you and Perissa laid out below, you come to the gates of the terraced private estate. Cactus is on the lower slopes and up external steps, and at the back of the villa facing the sea is your private terrace. The terrace has the wow factor, the handcrafted infinity outdoor heated pool has a sunken lounge area, so nothing disturbs the views from inside the villa. There is a hammock for siestas, beanbag loungers, and a wooden table and dining chairs for al fresco eating under the sunshade, with curtains for extra privacy. The view is mesmerizing, seas, sky, clouds and if the weather is right the outline of Crete on the horizon.
