“Beautiful Villa, close to Oia village in gorgeous Santorini”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This Villa is in Finikia village, right next to Oia, Santorini. Finikia is a beautiful village set on a little hill ....cobbled pathways and steps through the village lead to the villa. The villa has beautiful views of the white and blue santorini landscape. It had all amenities, the only thing missing was a washing machine:(. The inside was a mix of modern and cave style house - we really loved it.

The walk to Oia village was about 7 - 10 minutes. Oia, I thought was the most beautiful town in Santorini, even better than Fira, its capital. We spent a lot of our time in Oia, walking through the Caldera and tremendously enjoyed every minute of it.

The other highlights of our trip were a trip to Black beach & Red beach and a boat excursion around the caldera - I highly recommend them all. Black beach - has black pebble like rocks and red beach has red rocks - both a by product of the volcanic ashes. A lot of fun as instead of the sand, these pebble like rocks did not cling and felt so good. Walking, rolling in it literally felt like a mini massage. And on our last day we booked a private boat cruise via the Triantafillou Sailing company in Oia village - Captain Lambros Traditional boat. That was one of the most scenic boat trips I have ever done. The view of the Caldera was gorgeous and then the sunset on the water - totally amazing. Really enjoyed it.

Buses from Oia to Fira are frequent and cost less than 2 euros. All bus stops have a timetable posted. Fira is the centre and all other connections are available here. We rented a van for the day as we were too many but later realized when we took a bus trip to Fira that the buses were really good.

All in all really enjoyed FAVA villa - thank you :)

“Lovely house with a lovely setting”

We thoroughly enjoyed the Fava Residence and the host was most cordial and helpful. Our arrival time was delayed a couple of times, but the host was most accommodating and met us when we arrived. There were 10 of our family staying here and everyone loved it. The interior was clean and beautiful, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate. We especially enjoyed the front terrace with tables and chairs where we had our breakfast most mornings. Sitting under the arbor with grapes growing overhead and hanging down was a nice touch to the ambience. In short, it was a perfect place for our Santorini stay.

I will add one cautionary note for elderly people or people with mobility issues. It is a hefty and uneven climb of a few hundred meters with lots of slopes and steps from the parking area to the house.
