We decided to spend 8 nights in Fira mid Oct.2012 to experience the charm of Santorini and the Caldera view and we were not disappointed. We chose this location on the recommendation of a friend who previously stayed here. We booked our room directly dealing with Anja(owner) via e-mail. Her description of the room and location was accurate and helpful. We stayed in unit 9 a studio apartment. The room is layed out in a traditional Greek style. We found it clean and comfortable. The only part of the room I would not consider traditional was a bar fridge but was greatly appreciated. We chose this location for the Caldera view and considered it a great value. Upon our arrival Anja,s daughter picked us up at the airport. She was prompt and pleasant. Upon arriving at the rim of the volcano and parking we were met by Edie who carried our luggage and escorted us to the Scirocco. Be prepared for 10 min, walk through numerous walkways a series of steps to reception. We stayed in unit 9 another 86 steep steps from reception to the unit. I would not consider this a negative but you should be prepared for the physical part of the adventure and it is not for everybody. We dealt mainly with Alma and Arthur. They were most helpful and very friendly. We left with the feeling they both went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. Breakfast was included with our room. We found it excellent. Be prepared it is a European style breakfast. Choice of coffee or tea, orange juice, yogurt, a delicious home made fig preserve, boiled egg, cream cheese, bread, jam and honey. Having this breakfast served on an open balcony was part of the experience with a beautiful Caldera View always there. We never met Anja until the last day because she was out of country. She picked us up and took us to the airport. A very pleasant person and we enjoyed her company. Many thanks to everyone at the Scirocco for making our holiday special.
