Santorini places to stay with two kids?

Hi folks, we are planning to take a vacation to Santorini for 4-5 days this year. We have two kids - a 5 year old and a 20 month old. We have been reading up trying to find the best locations for families given that some of the hotels seem not feasible given the location, walking etc. We were hoping to find someone in the Fira area so that we can walk to the restaurants. Any suggestions on locations on the island as well as specific options in the Fira area with kids?

When you ask for hotel recommendations please include your travel dates, the amenities/facilities needed and your combined maximum daily room budget, in EURO. There are just too many choices otherwise. Also, have you tried using the filter system on http://www.booking.com to narrow your choices down based on your requirements?

Fira is very hilly with a number of cobbled streets, so may not be practical for a buggy and the children probably won't appreciate the views that its famous for.

There are plenty of restaurants that are walkable at the main beach resorts of Kamari and Perissa. Although, are you aware that Santorini's beaches are black, volcanic sand that get very hot underfoot?

Naxos has better beaches for families.

Agree with Kennydon. Fira IMO is not the place to take the kids for a few days.

Kamari or Perissa would be a better choice on Santorini

Another good thing about Perissa Beach is the water park for kids. http://www.santoriniwaterpark.gr
