“A True Island Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
2
people found this review helpful

What a magical week we spent on Santorini in large part because of our stay at Fava Residence in the small village of Finikia a 10 minute walk from the fabled sunset town of Oia. Owners Antonis and Dora Gavalas epitomize Greek hospitality. Their welcome ways and love of the island provide a memorable introduction for all there is to see of Santorini. For an authentic village experience within walking distance to Oia Fava Residence is the place to stay.

“Authentic Santorini gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

What a lovely place to stay! Antonis is a fantastic host. We really could not have asked for a better introduction to Santorini. He organised a minibus to collect us from the port and on arrival he sat down with us to give a tailor-made guide to the island that was invaluable. Also waiting in the fridge was some delicious local wine.
The place is just as it appears in the photos - an authentic traditional house - with stunning views over the north coast of Santorini. Very clean and comfortable with a spectacular rooftop that wraps all around the building. Sunset and sunrise from this spot are magnificent! The location is terrific for those of you that want to be just outside of the hustle and bustle without feeling like you're missing out on the action. Finikia has some great restaurants to explore but if you feel like even more selection, the beautiful town of Oia is just a short walk away. It was an awesome experience and we can't recommend this place highly enough! We'll definitely be back!

“Sehr schöne Unterkunft in traditionellem Stil, abseits vom Santorini-Trubel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2014 for a stay in October 2014
Google Translation

Wir haben uns sehr wohlgefühlt in der Aelos Master Suite, auch wenn sie etwas rustikaler ist, als die eleganten Fotos nahelegen. Das Appartement im traditionellen und autofreien Dörfchen Finikia ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet mit einem sehr guten Bett, das tagsüber als Lümmel-Couch dienen kann. Die Terrasse mit nördlicher Ausrichtung bietet einen grandiosen Blick über das nördliche Ende der Insel, das Meer, den südlichen Teil von Oia und - bei klarer Sicht - auf die Nachbarinsel Ios. Wir haben dort gerne gefrühstückt und mehrfach den Sonnenuntergang genossen, der täglich Tausende nach Oia zieht, auch wenn man von der Fava Residence aus die Sonne hinter Oia und nicht im Meer versinken sieht. Zur Bushaltestelle, zur Caldera, zum Wanderweg nach Fira und dem Touristen-Magneten Oia sind es nur etwa 10 min. zu Fuß. Die Caldera selbst sieht man von der Unterkunft aus nicht. Gewöhnungsbedürftig sind die Dusche (begrenztes Warmwasser, dünner Strahl) und die Toilette (Klopapier in den Eimer), was aber angesichts der Wasserknappheit auf der Insel nachvollziehbar ist. WLAN ist vorhanden, aber meist mit schwachem Signal. Definitv Luft nach oben hat die Küchenausstattung. Drei-Gänge-Menüs sollte man nicht einplanen. Der Kühlschrank ist laut - das fällt besonders auf, weil es nachts sonst himmlisch ruhig ist. Unter der Master Suite sind zwei weitere Unterkünfte, von deren Bewohnern wir kaum etwas mitbekommen haben. Besonderes Lob für den vom Eigentümer Gavalas beschäftigten Concierge, Mr. Grigoris. Er ist zuverlässig, hat uns mit reichlich Informationen versorgt und alle Fragen freundlich beantwortet. Herr Gavalas hat außerdem den Transfer vom Hafen zur Wohnung organisiert. Wer das Chaos dort kennt, weiß, wie sehr das hilft.

“Luogo indimenticabile, domatia "vera" in borgo antico, accoglienza e attenzione di Antonis speciali”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
Google Translation

La domatia e' ricavata in uno dei vecchi edifici del villaggio di Finikia di origini medievali. Completamente ristrutturata di un bianco accecante come tutto il villaggio, si raggiunge solo a piedi in 6-7 minuti. Per questo e' tranquiliissima e adatta a chi cerca pace e un luogo verace.
L'accoglienza calda di Antonis e della sua compagna ci hanno permesso di conoscere tanti dettagli di Santorini e di passare momenti molto piacevoli insieme.
Anche i nostri bimbi si sono trovati benissimo, in una casa con tetti bassi, tante scalette ed angolini particolari, un posto per inventare fiabe.
