We loved our few days at the Nefeles Suites in Fira. Arriving at a quiet time of year, it was the perfect base to see the whole island and we liked it so much we stayed one extra day. We will be recommending Nefeles to friends thinking of visiting Fira.
We were met off the boat from Piraeus at the port by George, and whisked off to Fira where Alexandros kindly met us by the road and carrried our bags to the suites which overlook the whole caldera, and felt properly welcomed. As it was a quite time of year and we were celebrating, we were really kindly upgraded into a beautiful tall suite, Afroessa, with a beautiful private balcony, when we would have been perfectly happy with our first choice. The three staff on duty during the day were kind and efficient, and went well beyond what you might expect, whilst allowing plenty of space for us to relax.
The suites are perfectly centrally situated opposite the volcano islands of Nea Kameni and Palea Kameni. In winter the sun sets into the Aegean with a beautiful view of these and Thirasia, though arguably the view in the morning as the sun slowly lights up the bay from behind Fira is just as magical. From Fira it is easy to get anywhere on the island - the buses run to most places about every 80 minutes in Winter - and Alexandros had some good advice of what to see and do.
If you are at all wondering whether to visit in Winter, it is lovely and peaceful, and we had bright sunshine for three of our five days on the island. Everyone has time to be even more kind and friendly and are so happy to see visitors - and generous too. You will begin to appreciate having historical sights to yourself, and will certainly be looked after by your hosts, and the few restauranteurs who have stayed open.
