Come for location and views ! The best venue at this price in the island but,if you have luxurious expectation,find something else !
The rooms are basic but cosy,very clean,the bath is good size . The view from the balcony,even from your bed is breathtaking,you can admire Caldera and Fira to Oia view are the best.
The place is very quiet, near to Akrotiri,with easy access to shops,port of Akrotiri,many good beaches are also close,beginning with Red Beach,10 minutes drive to the parking place or by boat from Akrotiri,the black beaches are reachable in 15 -20 minute by car,but one of the best and interesting beach in the island, Caldera beach,the only onto caldera,is 10 minutes walk,or 5 minutes drive,with a steep but good road down,parking also available near the beach.
The first part of beach I has peebles,the second one is sandy.
Parking facilities are good,just opposite the building.
The staff made us feel at home as soon we arrived,Vassilis,the owner can give good advices about what to see,where to go,eat..,Vivienne send us welcome messages by arranging towels in different shapes every day. Even the dog,Snoopy was a friendly presence and remind us of our pet at home.
Breakfast was continental,served on a beautiful terrace,also with view,and consist in some cheese and ham,eggs,with the grand finale,made by owner''s mother,some cake with orange ,some small doughnut with honey and cinnamon,and other delicacy.
They can also serve lunch and dinner,only to the guest and by request one day before,the food w as very good and at a reasonable price.
At checkout,Vassilis give us some present : a bracelet ,made by his sister,with the simbol of Greece,the eye and a black stone,simbol of Santorini and a small bag with some blue "shells"that turn out to be candies. Nice gesture,thank you for a pleasant stay.
