The Chelidonia Villas typify the Santorini / Caldera view that everyone sees in postcards and dreams to stay at! We had one of the smaller suites, down the caldera (note there are stairs you will need to navigate). There was a nice little balcony area, that was quite private too. It was beautiful to sit at in the evening, with... More

Fantastic room. Bright and charming. Very big bed and huge bathroom. Clean. Great views of the caldera. Innkeeper made any arrangements we wanted and offered wise recommendations. If in Oia this is a great place. Now, having said that I think Santorini lacks any character whatsoever. It is beautiful, but too perfect. Like Disney made an island. Much preferred the... More

My wife and I stayed at Chelidonia Villas for 4 days and loved it. The room had a wonderful view; the kind everyone expects when staying in Santorini. The room had a kitchen, living room with a dining room, a bedroom, and a front outdoor patio with a table where we had dinner, and lounge chairs. It was clean and... More

We just returned from 12 glorious days in Santorini. This was our second stay at the Chelidonia and it was as wonderful as the last time! We appreciate that the houses are all preserved in a traditional way. We felt like residents of this amazing island! We had the XL unit which has a large living room, 2 bedrooms and... More

Amazing view, Beautiful terrace, purple Bougainvilleas amazing, Villa spacious and clean, great location. Just didn't stay long enough. Recommend the 10k walk from Thira to Oia... Amazing views of the caldera and whole island.. but next time wouldn't wear Flip-flops/Thongs/Jandals!

Very nice appartaments. They all have privileged amazing views of Santorini's Caldera. They are beautiful appartaments, well equipped and very clean. The owner is very king and will happily recommend you some restaurants and places to visit if you ask him to.

After looking at online hotel booking sites and not finding anywhere that ticked the honeymoon boxes (and came within budget) we pulled out our trusty Lonely Planet guide for advice, Chelidonia Villas sounded great. Chelidonia Villas website said we needed to complete a bank transfer to pay a deposit for the apartment which immediately made us nervous, it doesn't seems... More

My parents and brother luckily stayed at Chelidonia Villas a couple years ago, so I knew to book this lovely hotel. My usual method of just plugging dates into Tripadvisor otherwise would not have worked! Chelidonia villas must be booked directly, but this is what helps keep their prices affordable, and they do not play games to maximize profits. What... More

Our June stay was perfect! The family goes out of their way to assist and accommodate their guests, truly a lost art. We missed our flight and arrived after midnight - not a problem. The A/C stopped on night and Rose was at our door in seconds (power company issue (resolved within an hour)). Wine, water and fresh fruit were... More

I recently wrote a post on my first night at Chelidonia. At that time, I was so impressed with Rose's (the owner) hospitality and service, I felt compelled to write immediately. After spending 5 days/nights there, I'd like to follow-up that post. After my entire stay, I frankly cannot say enough good things about Rose and Ericka, their hospitality and... More
