My family of 4 (including 2 adults, one teenager and one 10 year old) and a family friend (20 years of age) spent 3 wonderful nights at Oia Sunset, Oia, Santorini. Oia Sunset is set back from the caldera but is within walking distance via a small alley way flanked with shops displaying interesting wares and authentic Greek restaurants. At the top of the walkway is the courtyard of one of the most significant Greek Orthodox Churches on the island. One of the purposes for visiting Santorini was to spend time with the locals as they celebrated the Greek Easter festival. On Good Friday evening, the Epitaphios, the symbolic representation of Christ's tomb was carried through the village in an amazing candleit procession, followed by the priest. A spectacular fireworks display occurred as we walked. To the south, we could see the village of Pyrgos alight with candles. On the outskirts of Oia (within a short walking distance from Oia Sunset) is a small bakery which we frequented every morning to buy delicious treats. My children particularly enjoyed the Bird's nest and they were very interested in the traditional Easter plaited bread rolls with red painted eggs in the centre. After purchasing our breakfast, we would sit on the terrace near the pool at Oia Sunset to eat and to discuss the itinerary for the day. When my children are asked by enquiring relatives and friends about their favourite place in Europe, they both say that Oia Sunset was the best. From the moment we arrived, Panos (manager) made us feel at home. He was very attentive to our needs and made a special effort to accommodate our family in two suitable units. Our teenager was very impressed when Panos gave him a basketball and encouraged him to play on the local basketball court only 100 metres from the hotel . We all had a great time shooting hoop inbetween sightseeing trips. Within walking distance of the hotel is the most stunning spot to see the famous Oia sunsets. Oia Sunset Hotel is a very suitable place for families to stay on Santorini.
