“Best Spot in Santorini!!!!”
Reviewed 29 September 2010

We stayed in Oia for 2 weeks, thus we really know what we are talking about when it comes to location. On top of that, the cleanliness of the room was unlike anything we experienced before, and most importantly, the friendliness, respect, and hearts of the owners were unlike anything we have ever found. We are forever grateful!!!!!!

We stayed 6 nights: 4 nights in the honeymoon house and 2 nights in the cavehouse.
This was an amazing experience! Fotinos is a gracious host assisting with transfers, baggage, etc. The location can not be beat. You are in the quiet part of Oia that becomes the "hottest" place on the island when everyone gathers for the sunset. There is a great neighborhood feel and we became friendly with the neighbors. The view from the houses is breathtaking--we will never forget it. This really is the point to stay in Oia in a traditional cavehouse. It is also a 2 minute walk to all of the shops and restaurants in Oia. We did not want to leave.

Lovely cave house, near the Summer Lovers house, overlooking part of the caldera. Great spot for sunset photos, 5 minutes walk to the castle. The house has one double bedroom, another bed in the living room a huge bathroom and a tiny but workable kitchenette. Fotinos and his lovely wife Johanna are the epitome of hospitality both very caring people who know the whole island backwards. Fotinos collected & returned us to the airport plus carried our very heavy bags up and down all the stairways without complaint - A huge amount of steps to go everywhere and anywhere but if it's taken slowly is manageable. Thank you Fotinos, hopefully one day I will return.

Fotinos House is located near the old port of Amoudi on the cliffs. The location is very quiet and will allow you to see the very famous Santorini sunset. Although you cannot see the entire caldera, the view is magnificent. The old castle of Oia is located at less than 2 minutes walking. The owner is very kind with his guests and offers a lot of help if needed. We would recommend this location to anyone who is looking after a not very commercial place in Santorini.
