“This must have been atlantis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2010

After arrival we had a very warm welcome from Vasillis and his parents.
Every room is very luxurious but unique with perfect service.From the balconies you can expect one of the most breathtaking sunsets in the world.
Each morning you will be surprised by a different delicious homemade breakfast made by Zina with fresh ingredients from Petros`garden.We will never forget the lazy afternoon at a winery with Petros,thank you again.
Santorini is one of the most beautiful greek islands with beautiful beaches, magnificant beachtaverns ( ask Zina) and nice nightlife.
We stayed here for the third time and are planning to come back soon to Villa Renos.

The Hotel Villa Renos is located near the top of the caldera and has unbelievable views across the Caldera from your own personal balcony. Being near the top of the Caldera there are not too many steps to walk down ( or up) and you are located very close to a number of resturants The Hotel is run very much like a family business with for example home cooked breakfast which you can enjoy while looking out across the Caldera. The rooms are very well appointed and the beds are very comfortable. The Hotel staff are very helpful,courteous and friendly. We were on a six week trip across Europe and this rated as one of our best hotels. We will be going back again.

I would like to share our experience at Villa Renos.
Location - Excelent Location at Fira - Steps away from the Village and perfect location to enjoy Santorini´s amazing sunset.
Hospitalitty - No words to thanks Vassilis , Zina and Petros for the hospitality. All needs that we had Vassilis gave us the right directions for Restaurants , Car Rental , Shops, Places to Know around the island... Everything. Extremely Kind .
Breakfast - This is another excellent service at Villa Renos. Zina makes tipical Greek Cuisine every day and you can enjoy the meal outside with great View from Volcano.
Room - Our Room had a perfect view from Sunset at the private Balcony. Very confortable with LCD display, Air conditioning , BathTube and very clean.
So We Recomend strongly to Stay at Villa Renos.

If you want the convenience of being close to the downtown Fira, while still having excellent view of the Caldera, then this is a great option. Out of the all the hotels built on the side of the cliff it’s located the closest to the top so it is ideal if you want to minimize the amount of stairs you have to climb daily. The further down the side of the cliff your hotel is the more sweating you’ll do just to leave your room. This is more of a family run B&B rather than a traditional hotel. The husband, wife, and son were extremely gracious and made sure our stay there was enjoyable. We did very little research or where to eat or things to do while in Santorini, but it did not matter because the son made excellent recommendations throughout our entire stay. We may want to try a hotel in Oia the next time to enjoy the superior sunsets there, but for a place to stay in Fira with a personal touch this is a great choice.

Small boutique hotel with great views across the caldera. Family owned/run hotel with hosts Petros, Zina & Vasilis providing excellent service from the home cooked Greek breakfasts each morning to their advice on restaurants, day tours etc - nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were clean, well appointed and each had a balcony giving great views, especially of the sunset that rivalled that from Oia. We would recommend this hotel to couples looking for somewhere quiet with great views while still being right in the centre of Fira and close to the restaurants / nightlife. Only downside was that like nearly every hotel on the caldera it is a bit of a walk to get to as there is no vehicle access so don't expect a taxi to drop you right at the door. Would definately stay here again on our next visit to Santorini.

My Husband and I have just returned from our 5 weeks in Greece, we celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary and both our 50th Birthdays, the last week of our holiday was spent at the Villa Renos. We booked the accommodation via tour travel agents in Australia, but made email contact with 'Vasilis' and had great communications with him leading up to the trip.

We stayed in Room One, it was a spacious, well appointed, spotlessly clean room, carefully decorated in a traditional chic Aegean theme and the views from the balcony were fantastic. The views of the Sea, Village, Volcano and surrounding islands were so fantastic that we spent every afternoon relaxing, sunbathing and soaking up the views fand unforgettable sunsets from the balcony, we made gret use of the dip pool to cool down, mix with other guests and made some nice new friends.

The hotel is very elegant and tastefully decorated and the family are lovely, gentle souls who make you feel like family. The breakfasts made by Vasills mother 'Zina' were fantastic. We ate home made pancakes, fresh fruit grown from their own garden, freshly squeezed orange juice, handmade greek pastries and had the most wonderful poached eggs cooked for us each day and Zina's Pancotta is to die for, I can still taste it when I shut my eyes. The menu is altered every day so you get to have all her specialties.

Vasillis and his parents 'Petros' and 'Zina' were super and gave us great tips on where to eat and where not to, where to visit and what not to miss, since our return we have been reccommending the Villa Renos and the island of Santorini to absolutely everyone. Its without a doubt one of the best places that I have ever been to.

We had a very special time with them and we thank them deeply for the care and thoughtful way they made sure we had a truly wonderful time. We will always remember our special time with them and treasure the memories made in Santorini. We hope to visit and stay with them again soon.

Many Thanks and deep regards ~ Vasilis, Petros & Zina.

My wife and I stayed in Villa Renos this August. The stay was in one word "splendid". Vasillas and his family were wonderful, the advice the gave us on which restaurants to visit and those to avoid, or which excursions were of value and should be taken were all welcome. The views from the hotel are breaktaking and the moring breakfest's prepared by the family simply delicious. We stayed in Santorini for four days and it was amazing visit and Vasillas and his family made the visit that much more special. I definitely recommend those vacationers wishing to be spoiled and indulge in what Santorini has to offer stay at Villa Renos. We had a splendid visit.
