Accommodation in or close to Fira under 40 Euros?

Hi,

We will be in Santorini in third week of October. We will like to stay in or near Fira (with in walking distance). What are some recommendations for a kid friendly, budget accommodation (under 40 Euros)?

Thanks

In Firostefani, just a short walk to Fira's main square, is Villa Fotini.

In Karterados, about 1/2-3/4 miles from Fira, is Villa Manos

Thank you for the suggestion. The place looks great. The website indicates that they are 9 KM from the port. What are our transfer options? Is the town's main square far from the port too?

This map should help clarify locations and distances. Firostefani is just north of Fira. right on the cliff, more like an annex than a separate village.

There is a bus that leaves Fira for the port about and hour before each ferry departure. The same bus brings new visitors back to Fira. The fare is €2.2

Also recommend Villa Fotini .. I have stayed there several times - they have a good sized family room. Its an easy 10 minute walk down into Fira. If you opt for Villa Fotini there is no need to worry about taking the bus just contact them in advance and give them your arrival details and they will collect you from the port in their minibus.

Sorry! I just realized that I forgot to include the link to the map I mentioned earlier.
