“Stunning view and quiet location - perfect!”
Reviewed 2 July 2010

We spent a week here and during that time we hired a car and travelled to most places around the island, in our opinion nothing came close to this location. There are good tavernas within easy walking distance, the views are to die for, everyone we met was very friendly and it was less expensive than Fira, Oia and Firostefani. Our room was one of three on the lowest level which meant we had nothing between our terrace and the view down to the cruise ships nearly 1000ft below - perfect for a private breakfast that was delivered to our room every morning. Highly recommended.

Reviewed 27 August 2008

A week spent in Krokos Villas was excellent( Olympic holidays, June 2008). The accomodation, a traditional cycladic house built into the cliff face. Ours was called Villa Rinio (Little Irene). Our cases were carried to and from the pick up point in Imerovigli centre. The accomodation was basic but kept spotless by our maid named Sonia who delivered an enormous breakfast to our table on the balcony every morning. Beyond the balcony overlooking the Caldera, was a drop of about 800ft to the sea giving uninterupted views of the cruise liners and yachts arriving in Thira. A number of villa groups share a common reception.

Imerovigli escapes the worst excesses of the hordes from the cruise ships as it is a 20 to 30 minute walk uphill. If you walk into Thira beware Estiatoria or Tavernas overlooking the Caldera you will pay over the odds for the view as I discovered above the harbour in Thira! (26 euros for a cake ,a juice, a frappe and a water)

In imerovigli I recommend 2 eating places, a little Taverna opposite the main parking area called Anestis. The food is simple and taverna basic but I noted the young waiter, who has worked in London, was able to help diners unsure about dishes. No pressure to purchase anything and good plain food.

Across the road is Kappellinos, a pizzeria. This is more expensive but the service, size of portions and quality were the best I found on this holiday. While waiting to be picked up for the return flight, my wife and I were even given a glass of water as we stood waiting in the square.

There is one major downside to Santorini. If you have difficulty walking, especially up or down steps, you will find the island's old towns very taxing. There are no beaches on the caldera side of the island but ............ oh the view!

Reviewed 4 April 2008

My significant other and I stayed at Krokos Villas in Imerovigli in June 2007, this being my 4th holiday on Santorini. Imerovigli is by far the most beautiful location on the island - very quiet with wonderful views, winding, cobbled streets with no cars, whitewashed apartments, a few nice restaurants and gorgeous hotels. Very romantic.

Krokos Villas is a small group of apartments, the main one being the prettiest in the village and we were lucky enough to stay in this villa. The manager of the villas, Anastasia, was wonderful - nothing was too much trouble for her and she even got out of her bed very late one evening to tell us there had been an urgent phone call for us! Every morning we rang through to reception to order breakfast, which was set up for us on our private sun terrace overlooking the caldera.

Imerovigli is perfectly located between Fira and Oia, and I can recommend hiring a car, as driving on the island is easy - you can't possibly get lost - and you are sure to discover many hidden gems.

Santorini is the one place in the world that I would go on holiday time after time, but having previously stayed in Perissa and Perivolos, am now spoiled by Imerovigli and would never stay anywhere else!!
