You can't do Greece without seeing Santorini and because my wife and I prefer to get away from the tourist crowd we elected to stay at Oia. Which apart from the two hours leading up to sunset is quiet and very friendly. Esperas Houses looked like a great place to stay and we weren't disappointed. Just walking down to reception you get the feeling that you are really going to enjoy your stay. The view is pretty stunning and the place is spotless!! the rooms are built into the cliff edge (not sure what happens if they have an earthquake) and naturally cool, although we were there in August so the a/c was almost permanently on. The bathroom was well appointed and the little kitchenette made snacks easy to prepare. The pool was always refreshing after a day sightseeing and the Mythos was always cold and served up by very friendly staff. Convenience stores are close by and the local shops sell everything from antiquities to jewellery to artwork - shops are open until about 2:00am (so shop when it's cool). Great stay - thanks guys!!
