“Great little hotel and very welcoming.”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

We stayed at Chez Sophie for a week at the end of May and had a wonderful time. Its position towards the south end of Kamari suited us being in a quiet area but just a very short walk to the beach and the various tavernas and restaurants. The owner Tina and her son Nikos showed typical Greek friendliness and hospitality. They looked after us superbly during our stay, nothing was too much trouble. They transported us between the hotel and airport and offered us a room upgrade on arrival. Our room was spacious nicely decorated and immaculately clean. Bed linen and towels were changed every day and the room and bathroom kept spotless. Chez Sophie certainly lived up to the reviews on TripAdvisor and we very much hope to return some time.

On the last day of our 2012 trip in Europe, we stayed in this quite,lovely hotel. However, when we arrived, we got off at the wrong bus station. One kind older Greek gentleman called the hotel to pick us up. Then the hotel owner Tina came and drove us. At the reception, Tina helped us to reserve a taxi for our early flight and prepared a breakfast. The only thing was I made a mistake about the flight time so we had to leave earlier (and sorry Tina, if I woke you up in the morning).

The hotel room we stayed was small but very clean. The black beach is only 100 m away from the hotel. The restaurants which Tina recommended were awesome. It was a great experience with Chez Sophie.

Room Tip: If you take the bus, do not get off when the bus driver yells at the first time. Get off at the last...

It was our first trip to Santorini, booked purely on the ratings given on tripadvisor . You can't fault a thing. From the moment we arrived we felt like one of the family. The rooms were immaculate , the breakfasts were amazing, especially the carrott jam !!!!!!!The whole experience was an absolute delight. Kamari it's self was fantastic too. Enough to do, without being over touristey . Thanks a million Tina

We got married in Santorini in early June 2012 and other than the wedding night (wedding was other side of island) we stayed at Chez Sophie. The place itself was very clean with well-appointed rooms, (en-suite, air-con, safe, small fridge to store drinks etc) and very-well located at one end of Kamari beach. It was also adjacent to a municpal (free) car-park. Tina the owner, did everything possible to make our stay a pleasure, which apart from very noisy kids constantly shouting and dive-bombing into the pool outside our room-window, it was. Breakfasts were a treat and nothing was too much trouble for Tina. She even kept our wedding-cake in her fridge when we came back and told us to help ourselves anytime we wanted it - even if she wasnt there. Although we had a car and didn't need it, she also offered us a lift to the airport on our last day which was above and beyond the duties of a hotel owner. We would definitely return and you will find no better accommodation at Kamari beach for the very reasonable cost of Chez Sophie.

We recently visited Santorini for our Honeymoon and stayed 4 days at Chez Sophie. The facility was charming and quiet and just what we were looking for. Tina, the owner, was amazing. We were greeted with rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed when we arrived, a bottle of wine and a lovely card. Every morning you got a great breakfast (the best we had through our trip) of homemade yogurt, 4 homemade jams, sandwich and homemade pastries. On one occasion, I needed to iron my shirt and the only iron was in her room, so she had the shirt ironed for me. She drove us to the bus station on our last day to help us make our ferry connection. Unparalleled service from someone who got into the business for the right reasons. The location was a quick walk from the beach and tons of restaurants and shops. Amazing stay and easily the best accommodation we had during our trip.

Stayed 2 nights with my wife. The room is spacious and clean and bed confortable. The owner made her very best to make our stay as enjoyable as possible: nice welcoming email upon reception of our last-minute booking, enquired about ferry schedules, offered to pick us up at the airport, negotiated a very nice deal for the rental car, waited very late at night for our return (with a smile), and her breakfast gives you a great start of the day (home made jam and pastry...). We could concentrate on the essential: relaxing and enjoying Santorini.

Where to start? Chez Sophie is a special place. Not only is it located steps away from charming Kamari Beach, but it's proprietor is the kindest host one could wish to have. The property is small & intimate, yet private. Rooms are immaculate. Breakfast is lovely and freshly prepared before you. Pastries are served with a variety of homemade (yes, homemade!) jams that go perfectly with the greek yogurt that is served (along with other treats that change each day.) Tina, the best jam maker ever, is a delight. She balances being warm and welcoming with being hands off so you have your own space in this little enclave where you can hear the waves breaking at night.

Our original plan was to stay in Oia--the hotspot. Was somewhat disappointed when plans didn't work out and we ended up in Kamari. BEST decision ever. Will ALWAYS stay in Kamari and more importantly, at Chez Sophie with Tina. (Oia is obviously magnificent. Simply rent a car to spend time there, but the tranquility of Kamari is not to be missed.)

Can't wait for a return trip.
