Galatia Villas is like a very well run B&B in the UK. It is spotlessly clean and well presented. Our room was spacious and although the bathroom had everything it was certainly small.
The owners and staff could not be more helpful. As a place to sleep and breakfast it ticks most boxes, if you want more then you could be a little disappointed – spend a lot extra and get a hotel.
The walk to the first bars/cafes of Fira is up a very steep hill (5 to 10 minutes depending on your fitness) – a bit more walking to the Caldera (sea view). The good news is that after a night out it is a pleasant enough downhill walk. Taxis are an option but booking them for a shortish distance can prove problematical – they have bigger fish to fry.
Fira is an amazing place and there is lots to see across what is a small island – public transport is frequent and cheap.
Bars and restaurants in prime locations can be expensive but they really are worth the money: Ellis, Aprion and Assyrtico helped make our holiday special. If you want something cheaper but interesting and of great quality look no further than Mama’s House.
PS If you have the breakfast at Galatia Villas then ask for the scrambled egg – seeing is believing!
