“Excellent choice”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

A perfect stay outside of the crowded Caldera and Oia. The room had a nice view and was decorated in a very tasteful way, The lady managing the houses was very polite and helpful. She showed us the other rooms of the houses some of them beeing very impressive.
We had an excellent breakfast, sitting in the beautiful terrace with view.
We will be back for sure

“Couldn't askf or more”
Reviewed June 18, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Afoura Houses is near Pyrgos, on a hill in a village called Exo Gonia. It is 5-10 mins by car from the port and about the same distance from the Airport. As you can see in the photos, the whole complex is an old wine cellar. We booked the Pori House, which is big enough for 3-4 people. The complex itself is amazing. It is very well decorated, keeping a lot of the old wine cellar elements plus the touch of the owner. It has a nice terrace with a great view on the sea. The beds are very comfortable, never had sleeping problems here.

We also bought breakfast, which was delicious and "a la discretion". You can have it either down in front of your house or on the terrace on the top. As one of us has diabetes, the owner always took special care to serve one breakfast portion specially for diabetic.

The owner itself is an extremely good host, very pleasant person and always ready to help. Or to talk with you about different topics concerning the island or Greece :) On one of the days she even spent an evening with us on the terrace, bringing her own wine and good atmosphere. Finest greek hospitality! Overall, I can only recommend this place to anyone and will definitely stay here next time in Santorini!

“Afoura houses paradise of the floral flowers”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

AFOURA HOUSE ... This is what the inspired combination of Santorini's history , tradition , hospitality , luxury, charm. But what impressed me is the garden and its positive energy not let you remove out from its shadow .Looking to the blue sky your glance stop to the tall red color of bougainvillea and walking get confused with capers that grows everywhere . And the hostess Evelyn coordinates with professionalism and the loyalty the Afoura house cottage.

“Excellent conditions, very good position, wonderful people”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

The villa is in a very good position in the island, 5 minutes drive to the beach and 7 minutes drive to Fira the capital of the island. It is recently renovated at high standards and Evelyn is a wonderful host. We took a gorgeous breakfast at the terrace, very well prepared
and the view were spectacular.
Evelyn had a great care and gave us all the important information.
Thank you Evelyn for your excellent renovation and your kindness.
If you want to go to Santorini, definitely stay at Afoura Houses.

“perfection!”
Reviewed June 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Lovely in every possible way! My husband and I already were booked (and paid) to stay somewhere else in Santorini for our honeymoon. We stumbled upon Afoura Houses while on a walk to the restaurant Metaxi Mas and fell in love with this adorable Bed and Breakfast. A hidden beautiful location away from the crowds. This is as close as you will get to feeling alone in Santorini. And yet, a hop and a skip from the wonderful Art Space winery and delicious Metaxi mas restaurant. The place is impeccably decorated, cozy, luxurious, and elegant at the same time. The breakfast on the terrace was delicious and the view incredible. Evelyn is a gem herself and will help you plan out every detail of your stay. Book your stay here before it blows up and there is a year long waiting list.

“Beautiful. Our stay at Afoura houses was an enriching experience!”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

In May my partner and I from Canada visited Santorini to help a professional photographer. So we were looking for a place to get a good nights sleep! Through Airbnb we found an affordable room for two at Afoura Houses in Pyrgos. We sent a request right away. Evelyn the host, sent a reply immediately- i was relieved as it was my first experience with airbnb. She picked us up, asked us if we needed anything from the super market, helped us rent a car, recommended places to go and offered us a catered breakfast. Our suit came with basics- towels, soap and lotion, hair dryer, plates cutlery, fridge, closet, air conditioning and coffee. Each Afoura room in Pyrgos is beautiful, rustic greek architecture surrounded by floral flowers. With a balcony we had the best view of the water in distance, surrounding old village and mountains. Regardless there is a communal roof top outdoor lounge. We got the good nights sleep we were looking for! Evelyn is professional and guarantee can you safety.
