I have always dreamt of visiting Oia, Greece for a very long time with its picturesque views. Staying at Ifestio Villas not only exceeded my expectations but Katerina is truly one of the sweetest hosts who will welcome you into her arms like family. From the beginning to end, Katerina was very prompt and responsive in emails and answering any... More

For our first trip to Santorini and the Greek Islands, Katerina made us feel right at home and made sure our stay was absolutely perfection. We got in late at night and yet Katerina made sure we had a driver meet us at the airport. Once we arrived at Oia, she greeted us immediately with warm hugs and had our... More

The most amazing place in the WORLD to stay. Put this on your bucket list!! I have heard the saying breathtaking, but now I know its a feeling.. Staying at Ifestio was magical. I travel alone and had a romantic time. I know sound silly but when you stay here, you will understand. Thank you Katerina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We stayed in the Hercules Villa for 6 nights and it was perfectly situated in the heart of the caldera. Beautiful views, exactly what you expect to see when you visit Santorini. The Villa was comfortable, a traditional cave house that gives you the real experience. It was it was like staying at my Greek's aunt house and Katerina playing... More

This was our first trip to the Greek Islands and we feel so lucky to have had our first experience on Santorini... it truly is a one of a kind place in the heart of a volcano! The town of Oia is the most picturesque and quietest on the island. Ifestioia Villas are situated perfectly, close to everything but far... More

Ifestio Villas is a wonderful place to stay for several days when visiting Oia. Our hostess Katerini arranged for all the transfers from the ferry to our lodging, met us upon arrival, gave us a short history of the island, gave us copious ideas on the things to see during our stay and then kept in touch throughout the stay...

We rented all 3 villas for my family and we had a great time. They all have their own characters. The view from the villas is great, overlooking the Caldera. Katerina had a cell phone in each villa so we could call each other all over the island, which was very useful. She'll tell you the main things to do... More

we stayed in the Hercules villa, the largest of the 3 INFESTIO Villas for 4 nights in the beginning of September 2014 and enjoyed the spacious original cave apartment. No need to turn on AC, just a ceiling fan as the temperature inside was around 26 degrees (outside 30++). The best feature staying at Infestio Villas is the expert advice... More

The villas overlook Ifestio all three on a view of the stunning sea , amidst an infinite calm. Yet they are all three near the bustling main street , with its shops, bars and restaurants ; but as soon as you return to your home , silence regns ! They all have a terrace ; the interior is decorated in... More

Oia is the tourist spot in Santorini, Ifiesto Villa's was wonderfully located about half way down the slopes of the oia cliffs so there were a lot of stairs!! Katerina was an absolute pleasure to deal with, she really made the experience extra special. The villa itself was clean, comfortable and spacious. The breakfast supplies that were complimentary were wonderful... More
