Travelers' Choice
The location of Villa Ilias, perched 1,000 Ft above sea level, is one of the key benefits of this hotel. Those that choose to stay here are afforded breathtaking views that are unique only to Villa Ilias. More than a great location though, what distinguishes Villa Ilias from other hotels is our desire to see our guests as friends; friends who we would love to share our famous Greek hospitality with.

I cannot recommend this place enough, from the moment you arrive you are greeted with warmth and the best hospitality. The room was charming with the most comfortable bed and the views are to die for. We had booked for 4 nights and had to extend for an extra 3 because nothing else on the island could compare. We cannot wait to stay again next summer 🙌🏼💙 I am still dreaming of spinach pies for breakfast a week later!

I had the pleasure to stay for six nights at the villa and it was beautiful! You are welcomed in open arms by George and his wife for providing vacation ideas and tips for around the island. They both have all services needed and when asked for a request, such as renting a scooter, their contact was at the hotel door within 15 minutes to rent me a scooter. Every morning you’ll be welcomed with a great breakfast of your own selection (the coffee is worth the stay mmm). The hotel is situated in the perfect location, walking distance to Fira and if you’re a hiker, to Oia (this was the highlight of my trip). Several cafes and shops in walking distance. The view from my room was on the pool (as shown on photos). The best of all, there is no need to explore the island for an amazing sunset location as it is right at the pool deck of the hotel. Amazing sunset spot!! Thank you for a great stay. Highly recommended to feel welcomed in Greece. Loved my stay!

Fantastic views, beautiful swimming pool, amazing unlimited breakfast included (which saves you loads of money!). Also it’s in the nicest part of that coast for my mind. 10 mins to firo and right on the path so there’s no up and down stairs.

Firostefani is definitely the best area to stay at Santorini. It's a really lovely place, quiet and still just a 10 min walk away from Faros. What I loved most about my stay was the walk from Villa Ilias to Faros. It has the most breath-taking views of the whole island. You just want to stop after every step you take to inhale the atmosphere and to gaze at the caldera. The room I had at the villa is big enough, veeeeeery clean and cosy. But the best thing of this place is definitely George! It was one of the best welcomes I ever had. He really took the time to explain everything what there is to see and do on the island. He recommended me a Catamaran tour which was fantastic! He was so welcoming, always eager to help and suuuuuper friendly! I really felt at home thanks to this wonderful place, the lovely people and great accommodation.
