First of all, drop everything and book the Paris room at the Chelidonia. All the other overpriced hotels around the area is not worth the price because you are sharing balconies overlooking the caldera...it's not personable....it's like having a shared moment with a group....But not at the Chelidonia....the Paris room gets you an INCREDIBLE room with handcarved detailed rooms with a gorgeous kitchen and a private balcony with a view to die for....the caldera and all the surrounding towns are in the distance. You cannot believe the size of this balcony.....While other hotels has more stars due to a swimming pool...this hotel ( with no swimming pool ) makes up for it with its private balconies.....Who wants to splash around with a bunch of strangers on this romantic getaway in the first place..... A perfect day was.....hiking to nearby towns for 3 hours...then, sunbathing on the balcony with a book ( listening to the Never of Sunday soundtrack...I know...cliche but it works )....picking up dinner and wine and ouzo. Having it on our balcony. Afterwards, walking around Oia at night. The host is a great character with wonderful suggestions. DO NOT MISS THIS PLACE. STAY AT THE PARIS ROOM.
