I can't imagine a better place to stay on Santorini. The location was perfect, the owner/hosts were friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were great and our room with a king sized bed overlooking the pool and caldera was perfect.

Location will often take you to a hotel, but hospitality, exceptional service and cleanliness will keep bringing you back. We have just completed our fifth trip to Santorini and have stayed at the Villa Ilias each time. The hotel is well located with exceptional views of the caldera and just a 10 minute walk to Fira. Each night we enjoyed...
