Recipe for the best holiday in Santorini: 1.search for the best place to stay on the island 2. decide on Firostefani - just outside the madness that is Fira but in glorious walking distance if you want to experience that madness 3. Look only for places with a view of the caldera (otherwise - why bother?) 4. Realise that Villa... More

We spent two nights at the Villa Ilias, a sweet little family business. The hotel is located in Firostefani on a walking path. It is a ten minute walk to Fira and a ten minute walk to Imerovigli in the other direction. While our room didn't have views of Fira and the caldera, the pool area offered beautiful views of... More

Perfect location, perfect views, perfect hosts (George, George and Mary). We got the superior room (with private balcony), which was ideal for a romantic getaway. The pic's don't lie. I would recommend Villa Ilias to anyone looking for a relaxing time in Santorini, with accomodation with great views, and great hosts.

I think it’s all been said before: Beautiful views, very pleasant and helpful staff. I have to mention in particular Mary at reception, who could not have been more helpful, friendly and efficient. Yes, the bathrooms are cramped, especially if you are tall, but all the other aspects of this small hotel more than compensate for that. When you are... More

Villa Ilias was wonderful - it's located in Firostefani, a short walking distance to Fira and Imerovigli, and close to the bus stop to take up to Oia. The service was incredible - George and Mary were so helpful and provided us many restaurant recommendations, and helped set up transportation to and from the port. The views of the caldera... More

We visited Santorini when I was 6 months pregnant and I was looking for a quiet place that would be easy to access given that we would be walking plenty hike sight-seeing. Ilias fit the bill. I originally booked a pool level room but after reading the reviews, I decided I wanted to treat my husband and myself to a... More

Villa ilias is one of the best places we have stayed at. The value for money is great considering the amazing views, variety at breakfast and the extreme friendliness of the staff. Would recommend to everyone. Firastefani is also perfectly located just outside of Fira as it's quiet and has nice restaurants.

Amazing villa, great view in a quiet area. The staff are extremely welcoming and helpful. They provide everyone with a santorini newsletter in the morning and have great honest advice about restaurants, beaches and day activities. Breakfast is a decent size buffet and has heaps of options even for the gluten intolerant like myself. Spent 6 days in santorini and... More

Mary, George and all other staffs are very warm and helpful. We've reserved the exclusive room which has a perfert view faces to the Volcano, highly recommended! The hotel provided the information and activities on the island everyday, which are very helpful for us to spend the day.
