“The most beautiful accommodation for the most beautiful place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 August 2014

Having stayed across Europe - Fanari Villas was our favorite spot / accommodation. The staff were incredible, helpful, knowledgeable, the villa's incredible, AMAZING location, amazing view of the sunset. We stayed here for 5 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Some people have said the villas were dirty or floors not clean, I mean, it's the Greek islands, sometimes it's windy and dust gets in - it's NOTHING in comparison to the experience of having private sunset view access, having lovely staff and the restaurant was good too, better than I expected. HIGHLY recommend this place if you wish to stay in Oia - the pool was smaller but it's all you need.The breakfast was the BEST breakfast we had out of every place we stayed. The eggs fantastic but my favorite was the french toast AND each villa had it's own special wifi connection so you were never dropping out or had hardly any reception. Loved it and thank you Fanari - I would love to come back again one day!

Room Tip: We had a room right on the restaurant. I didn't even care though that it wasn't that private...

The wife and I are staying here on our Honeymoon. You will read a ton of reviews talking about the view and the rooms, but I wont bore you with that. Instead I will tell you of the sheer kindness, love and hospitality shown by Mimi and Nikolas, the couple that runs the place.

We arrived just before sunset on a Wednesday. Our luggage never made the connecting flight. The diver (hired by the hotel to pick us up at the gate) went to the claims desk and had us fill out the paperwork. As soon as we arrived, Mimi welcomed us with a smile and took the form we filled and assured us that our luggage will be taken care of. Unfortunately, we weren't able to get our luggage until Sunday, but Mimi and Nikolas took care of us every single day. Mimi even offered to give me one of her good razors for a shave! We were hand washing the clothing on our back as well as some items we purchased in Oia to hold us over. One day when coming back from dinner, the staff put all our clothing on a drying rack on our terrace to dry.

I cannot say enough about this staff. The morning breakfast is delicious (and free). The dinner menu is diverse and tasty. The view is stunning. The pool is refreshing and quiet. This place is just so amazing. Please book here and tell them Stephen and Lane sent you!

Room Tip: We stayed in ROOM 7. It is semi private, but we didnt have a problem with privacy. The view is incre...

Me and my friends ended up in this restaurant to have a bite and to see the amazing sunset. It was absolutely the best restaurant that we ate at during our week in Santorini. We all ordered different main courses and we were all very satisfied with the food and drinks. I would recommend it to all of my friends.

We recently stayed at Fanari Villas for five nights, and couldn't be happier. We were unsure how the stay could live up to the reviews we'd read on this site, but it really exceeded our expectations.

The location is unmatched in its beauty, with the private terrace giving a remarkable view of Oia's famous sunsets. And our suite (number two) was both spacious and surprisingly cool even with the air conditioning switched off - this was a pleasant relief when the heat got a little too much! Everything was clean, well-presented and with modern facilities, but with a traditional twist in the cave setting. The suite was right next to the pool, and it was the perfect temperature for cooling off. Opening the doors each morning was truly breathtaking.

The courteous and friendly staff made us feel welcome from the moment we had booked. As well as arranging airport transfers, they suggested restaurants and activities while we were on the island, including making reservations. And a bottle of wine was waiting for us in our suite when we arrived. During our stay, we witnessed a wedding taking place in the complex (wow, what a destination!) as well as another couple planning their upcoming wedding with staff. And with all interactions we saw, as well as our own experiences, it was clear the staff are willing to spend the time to truly understand their guests' needs.

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return.

We stayed at Fanari for 5 nights in the summer for our first trip to the Greek Islands, and our stay was perfect! Oia is a beautiful village with great restaurants and lovely people. The staff at Fanari went above and beyond to make sure our stay was as good as it possibly could be. Our fantastic suite overlooked Amoudi bay and the Santorini caldera and we had a perfect view of the famous Oia sunset from our private balcony. It was simply amazing! Can't wait to get back there for another trip as soon as possible. The staff felt like old friends by the time we left. They are absolute gems of the service industry. Nikolai, Mimi and Maya are amazing hosts and will make you laugh and feel very welcome as soon as you arrive. A perfect 5 days in paradise. Note: for older or less physically able people, there are a lot of stairs in Oia, and this includes Fanari Villas. But that's what makes the location so amazing and have such beautiful views from the cliffs. (And the porter will carry all your luggage up and down the stairs).

Husband and I went to Oia Santorini to celebrate our 10th year anniversary. We stayed in Fanari villas for 3D2N. We had a beautiful spacious room with private balcony. We had the beautiful sunset in Oia. The staff here are friendly especially Nicholas & Maya. We definitely will come back! For sure not just 3D2N ^^
