“Views to die for”
Reviewed 28 July 2009

Stayed in the Afoura cave house with my husband in July 2009. Blown away completely by the spectacular views. Breakfast will never be the same again. The Filotera Villas are situated in an excellent position, just a short stroll away from the centre of Oia, but far enough away to be not bothered by the madding crowd of sunset seekers. Our cave house was spotlessly clean, as was the pool, jacuzzi and sundeck area. The cave house was well equipped with a large flat screen TV, dvd and cd player, as well as a jacuzzi bath. The pool area was reasonably quiet when we were there, but I am sure it will always be that way since there are not many rooms. A highlight of the holiday was using the jacuzzi at midnight, but be sure to take a towel down with you. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. The only down side that we can think of, is the lack of a full shower, with only a hand held shower over the bath.

My husband stayed in the Megano room for 6 nights and were blown away by the magical view from our room. We were greeted with warmth by Nikolas and he and his daughter Margarita were always there to help if needed. Everything you would imagine a greek island to be! The room itself was perfect, enough room for the both of us with a small kitchen, table/chairs and a TV. The bathroom was clean and well serviced.

The swimming pool was well maintained and lovely and cool. There was nothing better than lying in the pool overlooking the cliffs and the beautiful blue sea - breathtaking!

Filotera is in the heart of Oia with supermarkets very close by and lots of wonderful restaurants and shops. Thira is a short bus trip and the bus stop is a couple of metres away. A taxi ride to the airport will set you back approx 20 Euro and they will collect other people on the way. Did this cut your price?? No, of course not!!

The Greeks were by far the most friendly out of all the European countries we visited this trip and their warmth and hospitality will be fondly remembered. We will definately recommend Filotera to anyone visiting Santorini.

My wife and I had such a wonderful time at this place. Our room (Afoura) had a spectacular view of the caldera that left us breathless when we arrived. This room/cave has all the comforts of modern life but at the same time it boasts an unspoiled touch of Greek traditions.
We were impressed by the hospitality of Nikolas and his family, they are the best. And we still miss them. We will never forget the time we spent at Filotera.

We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. A great place to lay by the stunning pool and try out a new restaurant every night! Would highly recomend it. A small hotel so everyone is friendly. Kept immaculatly and nothing is too much trouble for the owner 'Nikos'. Quite expensive for just the room, but that is the case with Oia i think. It worked fine for us as it made us eat out every night.

My husband and I recently spent three nights at Filotera Villas in Oia and we cannot recommend this place enough. The view is stunning and the grounds are beautiful, with a lovely pool area. Our host, Nikolas was very kind and thoughtful, as were most of the people we encountered in Greece. Also, the location is perfect. You are in a quiet section of town, but within a five-minute walk of all the restaurants and shops. We miss Santorini and can't wait to return someday!

Santorini is paradise and I am sure you will enjoy your time here.
My wife and I stayed in one of the large cave houses - Canava.
The cave house was large and could sleep five people, but there was only two of us. The view is stunning from the balcony and the property is ideally placed in Oia.
The owner Nikos, his wife and daughter (Margarita) were very helpful and some of the most genuine people that we have met while travelling.
Try the BlueSky restaurant and a semi private catamaran 1/2 day trip. On the catamaran trip we were only joined by another couple, so we nearlyhad the whole boat to ourselves nearly - magic and the highlight of our trip!

The only negative thing I can say about the cave house is the musty smell in the bathroom, due to the ventilation. Please don't let this put you of staying here.

My wife and I spent our honeymoon here from October 4th to the 10th. We loved every second of our visit, and Nikkos the owner made it that much better. Nikkos had a bottle of wine and glasses in our room ready for our arrival, helped us plan two days of activities with renting a car and getting our tickets for the volcano tour. Our room was cleaned daily and most of the time we had the privacy of the pool to ourselves most of the time. The villa was a perfect location with a great view, we knew we had a prime spot when all the people walking on the path outside the villa would stop to take pictures. Filotera also sits right over Armeni, the smaller port in Oia. The villa was also a straight shot from our cab of about 25 meters, the only steps we had were from the main lobby to our room which was 76 steps, but worth the workout for the view and hospitality of Nikkos. We are already planning on making this an anniversary visit in the future and we won't even consider staying anywhere else. I would suggest this to everyone, they have the best rates in Oia and great views to match. We paid 120 euros a night.

  • Liked — what you got for the price, a great host, great room, and great views
  • Disliked — nothing for us, but i could see stairs being an issue for kids and people with bad knees or joints in the legs
