We arrived in Oia, after a long trip from the US, as the first stop of our 10 day Greece trip. We couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip, our driver met us at the airport, carried our bags to Infestio, and charming Katerina met us at our room, bottle of wine and snacks set out on the balcony.
The Villa (Paride) was spacious, beautiful with outstanding views from every room. We loved having the kitchenette (stocked with breakfast goodies from Katerina), as it allowed us to make a big breakfast each morning, which we ate out on our balcony, accompanied by the friendly cats of the neighborhood.
The bed was very comfortable, and authentic to the cave house (everything is "built in" rather than bringing furniture into the space)....The bathroom was very modern, and the entire villa was nicely maintained and extremely clean.
Katerina is an amazing host, providing us with an in depth historical and architectural overview of the island on our arrival night. She then helped us plan out our entire trip, including making suggestions of restaurants and sites each day-- we took her suggestions to heart and were thrilled that we did-- each meal was delicious, and very authentic. We felt that we were able to avoid the overly "touristy" parts of the island, and instead focus on restaurants the locals went to. Additionally, she helped us rent a car on our second to last day, which allowed us to drive ourselves to the airport and save $$ on a cab.
I would HIGHLY recommend Katerina and Infestio to anyone looking for a quiet, romantic trip to Oia.
We can't wait to go back to Oia, and wouldn't want to stay anywhere but Infestio!!
