Reviewed 16 May 2014

We've recently returned from staying a week in Vallais Villa which more than exceeded our expectations. We could not find fault with anything. The hotel and room itself, the views, the staff - everything was just wonderful...first class! We were met on arrival for help with our bags and from that time made to feel very welcome and special. Breakfast is served on your terrance and in the time we were there, the menu was different every day. It was so relaxing and romantic to sit on your own terrace with a class of bubbly watching the stunning sunsets. We would not hesitate in recommending Vallais Villa to anyone and hope that we'll go back one day.

Our first few steps onto the property, the first words were out of our mouth were "WOW".... This has to be the best location on the island. It's so peaceful and beautiful. We had a nice stay here and the staff were so helpful, especially the young man who helped bring our luggage to our villa and also brought us our daily breakfast. We stayed here for 3 nights and understand how this place would be perfect for longer stays since each villa has a kitchenette with all the amenities for it. Make sure you get a hot tub! A nice touch to your stay.

We stayed at Vallais Villas for 3 nights. The views were stunning and access to the busier towns of Fira were relatively easy via walking along the caldera. Facilities at the villa were more than enough, and Loukas the owner together with his team members were very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this place.

My husband surprised me with a week in Santorini for our anniversary last year. This place is just magical. When we first arrived and were shown to our apartment it took my breath away. It's so pretty and romantic! It doesn't seem real. The views from the balcony are unbelievable, even better in the hot tub with a glass of wine :-). Everyone made us feel so welcome and really went that extra mile. Thank you :-). It was certainly a holiday to remember and I cannot wait to go back.

STAY HERE!!! Vallais Villas is perched on top of the town of Imerovigli. From the church, it is about a couple of blocks away and then you'd have to go down a set of steep stairs. A staff came out to help us with our luggage.
We stayed for 4 nights and wished we could've stayed longer. An awesome breakfast was included (crepe, panini, pastries, orange juice, coffee) daily. One of the days was my husband's birthday and asked Loukas where I could buy a small birthday cake to surprise him with -- Loukas took care of everything and had it delivered with our breakfast -- and refused to let us pay for it! The room itself was wonderful, clean and comfortable bed, with a small kitchenette. Bathroom was spacious with a jacuzzi tub as a plus! AC and Wifi signal strong. The highlight of the place is our balcony: unopposed view of the caldera, you feel like you can almost touch skaros rock. We spent lazy afternoons on the balcony reading and sipping wine while eventually waiting for the sunset. I loved watching the ships go by at night, with its lights twinkling.
Accessibility: Bus stop to Fira/Oia is around the corner, or you can have Loukas arrange for a cab pick-up if you prefer.
Supplies: There are a few convenience stores dotted along the main street where you can buy wine, drinks, snacks.
Food: Apart from Selene (located in the town of Pyrgos), I loved ANOGI restaurant located just around the corner from the church near Vallais Villas. Try their pork medallions marinated in vinsanto wine - YUMMM. For quick eats, try Lucky's Gyros in Fira.
Activities:
1)Imerovigli-Fira hike (we took our time with photo ops and detours): soak in the blue and white facade of villas hugging the caldera, blue domed churches, and spot the antique boat on top of someone's roof! Ask Loukas for starting point.
2)Skaros Rock hike: visit the mythical blue domed chapel of skaros. Quick hike from Vallais Villas with incredible views! Some parts are steep with no railing. Wear good shoes (saw a girl walking in gladiator sandals - yikes!) and apply sunscreen. Also, hike in the late afternoon, when the sun is not too harsh.

We still reminisce about our Santorini trip and Vallais Villas is very much a part of it.
Book in advance, you will not regret it!

We don't know how we lucked out,,,,but staying at VV was the best deal we have ever found in our travels. The view, serenity, hospitality, service, etc etc etc,,everything was TOP NOTCH. Don't waste your time looking any further. Book now because in two days it will be gone. Your 'Bell Boy' will be waiting for you at 5 AM to carry your luggage up those (61) stairs on your arrival/departure.
The only negative thing were those LOUD, OBNOXIOUS East Indians that were drunk and yelling to friends in other rooms. Once they were told to go to bed,,,then peace and serenity returned.

Room Tip: no sense adding a picture. They'r e all the same and you get every pic while staying at Villais...

What's there not to like about Vallais Villas - absolutely nothing! Warm and friendly staff; beautiful and comfortable accommodation with modern furnishings; stunning views of the caldera and sunset right outside the studio terrace and great food with reasonable prices nearby.
Glad that we stayed for three nights - Oia is over-rated and Fira's over-crowded. Here, we can find blissful solitude and probably a real feel of Santorini at its best.
