My wife & I stayed here for a couple of nights! Loved the place. The people who run the place are nice, warm and helpful. The rooms are a wee bit small but they moved us into a cave house at a relatively low price. The cave rooms are highly recommended as they have a small veranda area where you... More

Villa Ilias is located in Firostefani, which is approximately 10-15 minutes walking distance from Fira town. We stayed at one of their standard room located at pool level. Although our room and bathroom was kind of small, but I can't complain given the location, service, and great caldera view for our stay here. We enjoyed their freshly made breakfast and... More

We stayed in the Cave house, two apartments joined together with a gate between. We had 4 adults and a toddler in one and 3 adults in the other. Very comfortable, clean and tidy and perfect for our family holiday in Santorini. Firostefani was definitely the place to stay and George and his staff at Villa Ilias were amazing and... More

I was there for 3 nights on September 21, 22, 23. I really love everything and view from my window was stunning. I highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast was good. Everybody in this hotel spoke English very well. Santorini was the best experience ever.

We were very glad we picked this location. Oia was nice, but overrun with tourists, Firastefani was a much better choice. Friendly, helpful staff and a very nice breakfast. Lots of friendly guests here too. We loved the pool area, views were amazing. Room was a bit small, but fine, since we were mostly outside enjoying the poolside area and... More

Amazing sunset view! Staff was very kind and helpful! Walking distance from Firastefani and Fira with an incredible view along the way! Renting a scooter is a good option to get to know the island. Don't forget to book a transfer from the port to the hotel prior to your arrival.

Quiet location, no traffic noise. Small room and tiny bathroom but a window facing the volcano and a balcony facing Fira more than compensate. breakfast plentiful, pool terrace is excellent. Room 2 is wonderful. Staff are friendly and helpful.

Decided to 'pop-by' Greece for a low budget vacation following a trip to Turkey. Santorini isn't exactly a budget destination so it wasn't easy to find a reasonably priced accommodation. Thankfully I came across Villa Ilias. The hospitality from the staff and the view (probably the most important thing to look-out for when deciding on an accommodation in Santorini) was... More
