My wife and I (along with friends) had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for a week in July 2015. The hotel is situated on the cliff overlooking the caldera. Ideal location. Postcard views with a large private terrace and pool. Walking distance to Fira and many restaurants and shops. Perfect place for watching sunsets with a glass of... More

My family and I rented the entire hotel and it accommodated all 15 of us perfectly. Maria was the finest property manager/hostess ever. Not one request went unanswered. She also gave us great travel advice as to getting around town. The views were simply breathtaking from every level of the hotel. Our motor coach was met curbside by a fellow... More

This is our second visit to Lithies. This visit we stayed in Dion with our adult daughter. The lovely Maria was there to greet us even though we arrived late. Everything you need is there even washing powder for the machine which we were grateful for as we had been travelling for 3 weeks prior. We were sad to leave... More

We stayed in Santorini a total of three nights out of our 10 night stay in Greece and our stay at the Lithies will always be the part of our trip that sticks out in our minds as the most enjoyable. We were met by a kind young man after being dropped off and he took us to our magical... More

I'm sure every hotel on the calderra is perfect, but I promise you, the Lithies Homes are not to be missed. We are first greeted by Makies (sp?) who takes your luggage, throws it over his shoulder, and climbs those Santorini stairs like its nobody's business! SO impressive. Then Maria comes to your room complete with warmth, hugs, smiles, maps... More

We visited Santorini for a week in late April as I was photographing a wedding and It was also my wife's birthday. We stayed in Dione and we both agree that it was easily the most beautiful rental property we have experienced. Stunning, unobstructed view of the caldera and that lovely sunset. Immaculately clean on arrival and live high standard... More

Kept to perfection by Maria nothing is too... More

If you are planning a visit to Santorini, look no further than the 4 magnificent "cave houses" at Lithies in Firastefani. We had a wonderful week long stay in the Zephyr house waking each morning to a sunshine breakfast served up on our own terrace by the wonderful Maria, to the amazing caldera and volcano views and went to bed...

Lithies is how hotel hospitality should be! Maria is surely the kindest (and hardest working) host/manager/concierge on Santorini. In addition to the lovely, spacious apartments, Lithies' all-inclusive service, from airport and baggage transfers to daily breakfast to tour arrangements, makes your stay comfortable and hassle-free. Lithies provides many small touches (small snacks and beverages, kitchen and laundry items) and practical... More
