This cluster of properties is advertised as private villas so we were expecting a villa and not some room for rent , very smelly with humidity and even the air conditioner was noisy and smelling. The room was outdated with small balcony with some uncomfortable sunbathing beds.There is no services available we had to ask for everything from the owner... More

My husband and I chose Chelidonia for our honeymoon hotel, and we were not disappointed! Very reasonable prices, spectacular location and views, warm and helpful staff throughout, and as for Papa Chelidonia himself, he consistently went above and beyond to make us feel like family. He was very involved, genuine, and downright generous-- aside from making sure we had everything... More

We spent five glorious nights at the Chelidonia Villas in late September 2013; sorry for the late review. I researched every possible travel website, blog, and review before selecting the Captain’s Suite at the Villas. We were not disappointed. The suite was comfy and bright, and the view from the terrace is spectacular. The best part is that the terrace... More

My fiancé & I spent 7 beautiful days at Chelidonia Villas in early October. We arrived very early in the morning on our first day & were greeted by Dimitri who bravely carried both of our heavy suitcases up and down the winding staircases of Oia. We stayed in a beautiful villa at the very edge of the cliff, which... More

My wife and I traveled to Oia for our 30th wedding anniversary. Our studio villa was clean and quiet with a magnificent view of the caldera and Artemi Bay. The bougainvillea growing outside framed everything beautifully. The patio was my favorite place to relax in private and watch the sun or moon rise quietly while having morning coffee or sampling...

This place is breathtaking! The accommodation was ideal. The cave house was roomy, clean, had a kitchenette and quite a large patio to sit and gaze at the magnificent view. The owner was friendly and provided advice on restaurants, excursions etc. We are certainly glad that we stayed somewhere that had caldera views- it certainly is worth paying to do... More

My husband, and I, and our adult son stayed at Chelidonia Villas almost three weeks ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I call it magical because there is something absolutely magical about Chelidonia. The extra large two-bedroom villa where we stayed simply spoke to me. I could have stayed there for the rest of my life. We loved the view of... More

I can't speak highly enough about Chelidonia. My husband and I are expats living abroad and we travel quite a bit, usually we hit a new country every month, and this was by far our favorite accommodations we have ever experienced. The staff was very helpful and flexible with us while we were making last-minute reservations, and they arranged a... More

Our family stayed in a 2 bed villa here in September. Had two glorious days where the blue skies reflected off the surrounding white of the buildings before a bit of rain came in, but it didn't spoil our experience and should be expected at this time of year. It was so beautiful to sit outside and watch the sun... More

My fiancé and I stayed at their lovely studio villa for a week in August. The views were amazing. Staff support fantastic. Owner's recommendations on dining and treks around the island are so on point they put the infamous Rick Steves to shame. We were initially scheduled for a 4 day visit, but extended to 7 based on the hospitality.... More
