“Such a view.”
Reviewed June 11, 2010

If you can its definately worth staying somewhere with caldera views - and this accomodation certainly has them. Our appartment (to suit 2 people) was small, comfortable and clean, and only a 5 minute walk from the bus stop in Imerovigli.

We liked staying in Imerovigli, its not as big or busy as Fira or Oia, it has several good restaurants, a couple of good small supermarkets, one which is a good bakery as well.

The cliff walk from Imerovigli to Oia is breathtaking - its about 5km and a little difficult in some places (wear good shoes) and took us about 3 hours. Fortunately the bus back only takes 10 -15 minutes.
Buses on Santorini are not that frequent and all run to/from Fira, so if you want to explore Santorini easily your own transport helps. We hired an ATV from Sunbird in Imerovigli (30 Euro for 2 days) they were good to deal with and the vehicle seemed quite new. (they also have bikes and cars - as do a million other places). If you like driving an ATV or riding a motorbike then a trip to the port of Anthinios is worth it (even if you dont need the ferry)

We would definately stay here again, the view when lying on your sunbed in front of your room are amazing. Also good was Lucas in reception, he was always very friendly and helpful.

We booked this accomodation through booking.com at 100 Euro a night and felt it was good value.

It was with the help of trip advisor that we selected this accommodation in Santorini. Thankyou trip advisor, it made the holiday. We have never felt so relaxed in this place. There was a little building work going on around but even that did not spoil it. The apartment was immaculate with a fantastic terrace and view to die for. Lovely and peaceful at night. The hot tub on the terrace was great. We would definately go again.

The location is perfect for the caldera view and beautiful sunset. Because it is so high on the cliff, the view is non-obstructed. Everything is very tidy and clean.All cooking utensils are complete. Nice touch to the decor and interior. Most importantly the wonderful hospitality of Lia, the owner. Our stay was unforgettable. The vallais villa is near to the street, very few steps down. Very convenient for a bus stop, taxi catch and also parking is close by. Come in spring so the whole village is really to us only.

We stayed for two weeks in the Vallias Villa complex in September 2008. Our apartment was perfect. We had the most amazing view of the caldera and saw some spectacular sunsets. The complex is kept immacutely clean and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful.
Imerovigli itself is very quiet and you do need to venture down to Fira for nightlife but if you are looking for a quiet and romantic location, Imerovogli is perfect.
We would highly recommend staying at the Vallias Villas.

This was our second stay here and stopped for two nights, we chose "The white room" this time which has a separate kitchen /dining area and it was superb.
We arrived very early morning on the first flight of the day from Athens and as the room was unoccupied the owner let us straight in.
Most of the rooms now have hot tubs on the verandas and it was great to watch the sunset while sitting in the tub bubbles on sipping some nice chilled wine.
Didn't bother with breakfast just got some brekky stuff from the mini market close by.
No negatives other than the "we must be louder than everyone else" young Americans in the hotel down below. just a very nice place.

If you are like me, you do a lot of research on TripAdvisor looking for the perfect place to stay when you go on a big trip. My advice is to look no further and book the Vallais Villa. The cliffs of Santorini are covered with lodging. When you get there, you'll recognize every place you saw on TripAdvisor and many more. You won't be dissappointed with Vallais Villas so you might as well not spend more time looking (unless you really want a pool, there is no pool but nearly all the pools at other accommodations are tiny).

Some other thoughts:

* The location is spectacular. Best view on the island in my opinion and Imergovigli has less foot traffic by comparison to Oia and Fira. Several good restaurants are nearby - try the Imegovigli Restaurant and Blue Note.

* The service is outstanding. Lucas and Leah really are wonderful and went out of their way several times to make us welcome.

* We did have trouble with the hot tub. It is difficult to operate, but does get quite hot. It can get locked somehow such that you can not control it (ELOC, SLOC). Ask Lucas for help.

* The breakfast, while convenient, was just OK. After the first day we got food at the market within 100 meters or so, which was a cheaper alternative anyway.

* As a side note, I would avoid Jimmy's car rental. I won't get into details, but Jimmy does not run a fair business.
