The location is great. It's in the best part of this little village (Oia). It has nice views and our room was perhaps one of the best. These are cave rooms so no windows on the sides and you can feel the moisture in the room but it didn't bother us and we loved the charm and how unique it... More

This hotel is excellent. Not only are the rooms perfect and have great views but when an emergency, possibly a vacation killer-type situation came up, the people from Chelidonia were there in the clutch. My wife accidentally left her inhaler in a cab. After a long trek down to a ammoudi bay and back, the owners called the cab company,... More

This is the 5th time I have visited Oia, and stayed at Chelidonia. As always, the villas are immaculately kept and very clean, the family that own the hotel are caring and brilliant hosts, and Santorini is like a dream. I can't hesitate to recommend staying at Chelidonia. If you want a luxe 5 star experience, there are excellent hotels.... 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
