in Africa, Mozambique
5 double bedrooms
Villa management couple
Villa Santorini in Mozambique is an exceptional villa located a few kilometres north of Vilanculos on its own stretch of beach overlooking the Bazaruto archipelago. The villa rests on an elevated point surrounded by dense coastal vegetation, owning unparalleled views and privacy. The villa can sleep 10 adults or 8 adults and 6 children.
The shaded pool courtyard holds claim to an eternal view and an al fresco seating area beside a pizza oven and gas BBQ. The ocean front deck has a pale blue martini pool which faces directly onto the sea. Relax, meditate, entertain on the covered sala, upstairs from the courtyard. Tucked below this is another deck for private massages or romantic dinners. The Villa has a staircase to the beach.
Five majestic en-suite bedrooms that feature private balconies and breathtaking sea views. All have private balconies with sea views, iPod docking stations, a private room safe, elegant en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and fans.
The villa has two kitchens – one where outstanding meals are prepared by the resident Mozambican chefs. The other is purely for guests to use should they wish to help themselves to an ice cold beverage, a cappuccino or perhaps a glass of wine of their choice. However, friendly and personal waiter service is always available.
Villa Santorini is serviced daily with a full team to look after every need, including a chef and a villa management couple. There is secure undercover parking with electric fencing around the property, 24 hour guards and a gated entrance. A villa boat is available on request as well as meals and locally liquors.
Island hop, snorkel, laze in the warm Indian ocean or around the courtyard pool dreaming of dinner prepared by your personal chef. Listen to the tinkle of ice, perched on the lip of the martini pool or to the slap of waves against fishing dhows while being massaged on the viewing deck.
Vilanculos is well known as the gateway to the Bazaruto Archipelago. With regular flights from South Africa and now improved road access, Vilanculos is fast becoming a popular destination with tourists and travellers alike. The Bazaruto Archipelago, a chain of islands strung out like a pearl necklace, is a protected National Marine Reserve (declared so in 1971) that lies parallel to the historical Mozambican channel. The archipelago consists of five islands; Bazaruto, Benguerra, Margaruque, Bangui and Santa Carolina, also known as Paradise Island.
