my husband and i stayed here for 4 nights on our honeymoon, and it was an absolute highlight, we had excellent help and service from the staff. Flora was away, and Frederique tended to our every need - she even organized a most amazing breakfast for my husband and i every morning. this accommodation is pretty much at the highest point in imerovigli looking over the caldera, so the views from the private balcony are completely unparalleled and breathtaking (see attached photos taken from our balcony). the rooms in our suite were very large, inlcuding kitchenette and lounge area and in 'traditional' greek style. the lack of typical 5 star amnenities like swimming pool, buisness centre and gym (which we would not have used) meant that the 5plus star accommodation was affordable. It takes only 15-20 mins walk along the brethtaking caldera to get to fira, pasing little villages with little shops, cafes and restaurants as well as very cute residential houses along the way. i would recommend anyone to stay outside fira so they can enjoy such an amazing walk from imerovigli to fira along the caldera edge. Of our whole 2 month honeymoon in greece and france, this hotel and stay was by far the highlight and the best value for money.
