My husband and I stayed here for three nights in November. From lthe moment we arrived, we were entranced. We had booked a room with a kitchenette, bathroom, and patio but were upgraded to a room that also had a living room. The patio overlooked the caldera which was amazingly beautiful and was a wonderful place to sit and relax. We felt like we were the only ones around, even when there were tourists on the walkway in the village. It was simply incredible. We were very sad when it came time to leave.
The bed was comfortable and the kitchenette was great for our needs. The owners, Erika and Rose were extremely helpful when it came to giving us information about the area or historical background.
The town of Oia itself is very charming. We were lucky to witness a wedding party exiting the church in the town square after their wedding ceremony. There were serenaded by local musicians playing traditional Greek instruments while fireworks were shot into the sky. It was incredible and one of the high points of our trip.
I highly recommend this lodging! Can't wait to go back.
