We stayed at Donna's House in the village of Pyrgos for two nights( 4 to 6 May) and highly recommend it for those seeking a quiet, boutiique hotel in a picturesque village. (For those who want bars, clubs and a multitude of nearby cafes and restaurants, plus a beach or swimming pool, or the famous Caldera view, this hotel is not for them.) Instead, one will be treated to a charming village with marvelous views of the highest mountains on Santorini and partial views of the Caldera and the sea on the other side. This is a peaceful place where at night and during the day only the sound of a donkey bell will disturb the guests. The hotel - a refurbished villa -is located in the heart of the village and is not accessible by car. In fact, almost the entire village is a pedestrian zone which is part of its charm. Some of the churches and buildings rival those of Oia in respect to architectural features, color and dignity. The rooms are quite spacious, especially for Europe, and well equipped. The reading lights are worthy of the name! There is a courtyard with a fountain and flowers where guests take their breakfasts. Breakfast is typical of what one gets in Greece; and assortment of breads, yogurt, cheese and ham, cake, juice, water and coffeee or tea. Pyrgos is only a 10- 15 minute drive from Fira for those who crave more tourist attractions. We hired a car for a day and were able to visit the island from one end to the other: The Faros to Cape Ammoudi. In our minds, Fira is a congested, tacky place. Oia is absoutely breathtakingly beautiful but isolated. There are taverns in and around Pyrgos and the local shops and bakery sell beer, water, cheese, bread and other provisions for very reasonable prices. We stayed in one of the upper rooms with a view of the courtyard and mountain side. There is a terrace surrounding the upper floor with tables and chairs outside each room, which we used to relax and enjoy the views. The female manager Xeni is a gem; her English is fine and she is very helpful. One tip: she arranged at our request to have a taxi pick us up at the port. (We arrived form Crete by catamaran.) The fee was 20 Euros which we consider a rip off, since it only took ten minutes and we even had to share the taxi with another couple. When we rented a car for a 24-hour period at 30 Euros, we were able to drop off the car at the airport without an extra charge. Do the math: it might be better to pick up a car at the port or airport to save money. This place is a bargain for Santorini. We paid 70 Euros a night for one of their better rooms.. We would stay there again. Please do not hesitate to ask us about our stay in Santorini. We also spent eight nights in Crete and four in Athens.

Enchanted hotel in the delightful little town of Pirgos. Hotel was very clean and easy to access. Staff were extremely helpful, courteous and very friendly. Breakfast was terrific and the hotel provided a breathtaking view of the island. This is an exquisite hotel for those willing to stay outside the city of Fira. Its relative remoteness made it particularly quiet, a truly idyllic setting for those wanting to get away.

one of the best
I knew them many years ago, when it was a room to let for young backpackers
Now, when i come back, i discovered that is one of the best hotel of Santorini.
It looks like the luxurious on and it still have the warm of the family run hotel
It is in a fantastic village, Pyrgos, in the middle of the island, near to the main village of Thira, only few km, fresh , quiet, friendly people, nice view of the caldera and of the whole island.
The room, a superior, was large and very clean, in the upper floor, with the balcony over the island on the right and the village on the left.
You can also enjoy the greek breakfast in the beautiful patio among flowers.
