We are back home from "Caldera Villas" two weeks now, and we are trying to get used to not being able to count how many cruise liners are in the caldera!!!
We miss too the sound of the donkey bells as they made their way up from the little harbour below, passing our private balcony. During the sundrenched days they toiled endlessly with the heavy & the light, the young & the old to the clifftop above where the smooth worn white marbled tiny streets of Oia took over their burden and eased their load..Their only annoyence on the journey back down was the barking from an occasional dog!!
Get the picture!!!
Here in Caldera Villas we met the friendliest of staff, including Sam, Anna & Monica, all of whom went out of their way to promote a lovely atmosphere in this building.
The pool although small was clean and refreshing, but the view here is magnificent.
Oh God how I wish I was back there now as I look out on this cold Irish Autumn day with the wind blowing, the leaves falling and nothing but the long cold winter to look forward to when we are still waiting to have a Summer!!!!
We were presented with a complimentary bottle of wine as the staff/management discovered that we were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary.Thank You again for that lovely surprise.
As it was the end of the season we managed to get a really good rate on the room. A lovely split level apartment with jacuzzi bath, and a view to die for.
I have no problem in recommending "Caldera Villas" and wish
continued success to all involved.
