We stayed at Aura Marina, Ostria Apartment from12-18th July 2013. Nike the manager was extremely friendly and very willing to make recommendations of what to see and where to eat and drink. We followed her recommendations and were extremely impressed with the quality at the price. Some highlights included Nikolas Taverna in Fira, Franco's Café in Pyrgos, Lucky's Souvlaki in Fira, and Dimitri's in Ammoudi Bay.
The apartment is very good for those who are looking for a self catering option in Santorini. One of the major benefits is that Aura Marina is situated away from the busy towns of Oia and Fira. This allows you to visit these places early in the morning and then move back to the quieter confines of the town of Akrotiri during the times when the other towns are heaving with crowds.
You will need to make sure you have a car, as it is a bit of a drive to Akrotiri from the airport and sea port. Alternatively you could hire a scooter or quad bike.
All in all we had a great stay at Aura Marina.
