This house is in the best village on the island. But not only is it in the best village on the island, it's in the best part of the best village on the island. With the best sunset views on the island too!
Panos was a good host - he was there to greet us when we arrived, he arranged airport transfers on request and also someone to bring our luggage to the house (this is not something you will want to do by yourself considering the amount of steps in Oia).
We stayed in the lower house, which is the four person apartment with outdoor jacuzzi. The little cave house was adorable, beautifully decorated in a simple and traditional way. The views of the Caldera , Amoudi bay below and the sunsets were just breathtaking.
If there's one thing to be improved it's a little variety with the breakfasts. It was a lovely breakfast (fruit and greek yogurt, bread basket and honey and cereal with orange juice) but perhaps because we stayed for 6 days it started to feel a little monotonous.
All in all, a wonderful place. We would definitely go back to Oia, and having stayed at Spitia (but also seen most of the other apartments in Oia) - we would make the same choice again. Spitia all the way! :)
