We loved everything about Santorini and Efterpi Villas. Staff at the family-run business were friendly and eager to help with any enquiries we had about the room or things to do on the island. Nothing was too much trouble and airport transfers were easily and cheaply arranged.
The location was perfect (the mini mart/bottleshop was only a few metres away, as were various restaurants) and it was great to sit out on the balcony and enjoy the free breakfast each morning as well as the sunset in the evening. The rooms were very affordable too.
The room was clean, cute and comfortable, and when the windows were open you could enjoy the view and fresh air from inside. The view from the private balcony was amazing. And despite being on the caldera it was fairly private and quiet at night.
We had read mixed reviews about the hotel, mainly due to powerlines blocking the view. But when we arrived this wasn't really a problem. Sure there are powerlines (they have to get power somehow) but they weren't particularly unsightly and you could still enjoy the sweeping view (I am an avid photographer and found I could easily take photos without powerlines in them).
It's a great loccation, a perfect base to explore Fira (which can easily be done on foot), as well as wandering around the caldera. It is also easy to hire scooters/cars to explore the rest of the island. And it would be easy to spend days and days on the balcony just watching the view.
Yes the pool was small but perfect for a dip to cool off.
We highly recommend Efterpi (and Santorini) and would definitely return.
