My mum, my daughter and myself stayed in this beautiful in the Master Sea View suite for 5 days last week and we could not have been happier. It was exactly as described in the brochure. Absolutely stunning!! From the moment we arrived Nikos on reception bent over backwards to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. His knowledge of the island and places to visit were second to none and his friendly manner was outstanding.
Pyrgos is a beautiful, picturesque village with easy access to Fira and Kamari, many restaurants set into the cliff side and stunning sunsets. Estate 1896 is a small, friendly boutique hotel managed by Christos. Nothing is too much trouble for him, he is knowledgeable about all of Santorini and will give you terrific recommendations and advice. Breakfast is lovely and served either to your room or in the Olive Garden depending on your preference, and Christos is completely flexible about the time. Thank you Christos and the housekeeping staff for your excellent care on our holiday.
We stayed in this beautiful estate for our week-long honeymoon in Santorini, and we couldn’t have been happier with the hospitality of the property manager, Christos. He upgraded us not only once, but twice! We booked the Junior Suite, but we got a complimentary upgrade to the Honeymoon Villa for some 3 nights and then to the Master Suite due to some unforeseen circumstances with the Junior Suite. He was such a great host, always friendly and willing to help! The location of the Estate itself is very close to the main square of Pyrgos, not even 5 minutes walk, with fantastic restaurants, local bakery shop and super markets that stay open till late in the evening. The rooms we stayed in where spot on clean with functioning heating and air-conditioning, very tastefully decorated and furnished, beds were very comfortable and there were no sounds to be heard from outside. Great value for the money spent! …
My friend and I, we had an amazing time staying in the Estate 1896. The Estate is very chaming with a beautiful garden, nice views, and great location. In addition, the customer service is simply outstanding. The manger Christos is professional and very welcoming. The Estate 1896 will be mine destination stay next time in Santorini.
While the apartments are lovely, spacious and bery modern, the singlemost thing that sets Estate above all others is the customer service delivered by the owner and especially by host Christos. He made sure we had his card and number and when we got lost (Google Maps is not always trustworthy), which we did, he was patient, kind, teasingly funny and arranged prompt and courteous transport back to our suite. He is a wealth of information about local sites, customs and is very respectful while having a delicious sense of humour. Breakfast was fresh (but you need to book it ahead of time, not included in room fee). The location is central but the transit system is unreliable and i would not recommend driving here. Christos, you are the host with the most!
