We would highly recommend staying at Heliophos. It's near Oia but far enough to feel away from the madding crowds. The little village of Finikia is a lovely traditional settlement and has wonderful views over the Agean, albeit not the caldera. It's DIY breakfast and it is lovely to sit outside on your private terrace, but it is a bit... More

We had the most amazing week here. Sofia is lovely. The location is great just a short walk from oia. The peace and quiet was something else. I could not recommend the place more highly. We stayed in one of the honeymoon suites - I'd go back again tomorrow

We were not expecting such a cute and well decorated room. Little details made it that much more special to stay there. The location was ideal as it was very close to Oia but just outside a bit so it was quiet and less touristy. The neighbourhood around seems still authentic. The hotel is a Oia, cave style house so...

Heliophos is a perfect place for people who like to relax in a quiet,truly authentic,laid-back Greek environment,surrounded by warm and unpretentious hospitality.The whole place is beautifully and tastefully decorated with antique or ethnic objects,lots of them gathered by the owner's many travels around the world.It nevertheless maintains its fundamental Greek character. Our room was a traditional Cycladic cave-house,spacious and airy,with... More

Very nice location, really beautiful place! Sofia, the owner, is really kind and helpful! She gave us all the information we needed about the island, where to eat, what to see etc... The breakfast was really delicious, with fresh bread, a variety of jams, yogurt and local products of Santorini. Our room was really comfortable and beautifully decorated! The decoration... More

Well we did pay the cheapest price so I suppose we got the cheapest room. I think all the other happy reviews are from the lucky ones that did get the rooms as advertised and the unhappy customers got the same small dated room. It is in a nice place and I dont think the walk into Oia was that... More

We stayed at Heliophos for three days. The room was nice, each room has it's own patio or balcony. These are old houses built into the hillside turned into a lovely bed and breakfast. Very charming! When we arrived we were disappointed to find that the air-conditioning advertised was in fact "natural A/C" owing to the fact that the rooms... More

We loved Heliophos when we last stayed in Santorini. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and the accommodation very reasonably priced compared to other hotels or guest houses in Oia. Yes you do not have the view of the volcano as other- much more expensive places- boost but you can walk easily to the centre of Oia and still... More

So cute!!!!! Loved this hotel. It gave me the real Greek experience I was looking for. It's a cute Greek cave. Me and my girlfriends loved it and tried to take pictures but they did not do it any justice. The owner was very sweet and the breakfast was good and made you feel at home. She made lots of... More

I stayed 5 days with my grown up daughters in a nice 2 bedrum appartment with a little veranda with a view of the village and the sea. The village of Foinikia is beautiful and peaceful, abount 15 minutes walking distance from Oia. It has not Oia's stunning views to the caldera, but it is very quite and to me... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Traditional SANTORINI vacation away from masses. Just 1.5 kms from the famous Oia, with the indescribable view of the largest volcanic caldera in the world, the small village of Foinikia, inhabited mostly by locals, remains in ancient times, before the tourist rush. The villagers with their donkeys, farm laborers and women who talk to their white houses, form a unique atmosphere. Studios Heliophos, in the heart of the village, has been renovated with great respect for rural life, and offers holiday really very quiet, apart from the crowds of tourists, but not far from the commercial and tourist center of Oia or surrounding sandy beaches at 3 kms (Note that inside the volcanic caldera of Santorini no beaches, which are only found around the island). Location: The village Foinikia is 1.5 km from OIA and caldera of Santorini, 15 km from the airport. At 100 meters there is free parking, local bus stop agency and rental cars and motorbikes. Rooms: Each studio decorated with taste, has its own veranda with view, Satellite TV, CD player and radio and are air - conditioned. Wi-Fi Internet. The kitchen is equipped (Coffee maker, toaster, electric plates-fridge), always full of required for complete breakfast included in the price (milk-coffee-orange juice-butter-buns-jam). Possibility of use the large terrace and large communal kitchen, washing machine, dryer and linen included. Bathrooms: private bath with shower, hair dryer, hot water. ... more   less
