My sister and I spent five nights at the Villa Ilias in Firostefani in October 2014 and we could not have been more pleased with our stay. The location is perfect, the staff was friendly and accommodating, the rooms were incredibly affordable, and while on the smaller side, the rooms were clean and comfortable. There would be little need for... More

I went to Santorini for my Honerymoon and stayed in Exclusive Room of Villa Ilias for 5 nights from Oct 7-12. The first thing that you will notice is amazing hospitality of Marie, George, & Georgio, there are no words to express how brilliant they are. Exclusive room has an unearthly view of the Santorini Caldera and the sea. The... More

We were two couples on our first visit to Greece, and we wanted Caldera views in a quiet area, close to (but not right in) Fira, that didn't cost a fortune. Villas Ilias met all of our needs, and then some! It's a 15-minute walk to central Fira, on the Caldera (and the Fira-Oia bus line) and right near lots... More

My girlfriend and I stayed at Villa Ilias from June 3, 2014 to June 7, 2014 and I must say our stay was amazing. Late post but better late than never right? Haha. The staff is really friendly/helpful and even helped us call the rental place so we can rent an atv to get around the island. Having them arrange... More

This hotel offers great service. We took up their offer to have them pick us up from the ferry for 10Euro a person. The check in process was very informative. Ann gave us a list of her favorite restaurants in each area and also her favorite spots on the island on where to catch the sunset. This hotel also gives... More

Villa Ilias is a very nice hotel, renovated and with very friendly and pleasant staff. The room was small but in excellent condition and very clean. Very nice breakfast area and pool with a wonderful view of the volcano. We had great time.

We were extremely excited to stay here and it exceeded our high expectations. The area of Firostefani was perfect as it was close to Fira but very quiet in the evening time. The views from here are phenomenal to say the least! Mary, who operates the hotel most of the time, was extremely helpful and friendly and every recommendation she... More

We were in Santorini for 3 days and found Villa Ilias good enough for the stay. The hotel is directly accessible from the road and no stairs were required to climb up or down from the hotel, a scenario that is otherwise common in Santorini hotels. Firostefani is centrally located and the hotel is right on the walking path from... More

Staff was very kind and the room was spacious and very clean. The hotel has stunning views of the caldera and each room has it own balcony. They also arrange... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Villa Ilias and loved it. It is a family run hotel with family orientated intimacy that makes you feel at home. The breakfasts are home-made (with good variety) and the hospitality genuine. The hotel is in a good location: situated close enough to busy Fira without its noise. Easy walk up the hill... More
