Heliades Apartments
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Waking up every morning, opening the door and watching the Caldera from the highest possible point. What else? Well, Heliades is much more than that, with Olympia's warm smile, home-made jams, and care for the details. She also booked our trip in the Caldera up to the volcano, arranging for bus transfer and so on. She run the extra mile giving suggestions on the beaches to visit, according to the day's weather, and bringing a muffin with a candle for my birthday's breakfast. Now, seriously, what else are you looking for?
Definitely recommended!

The view is ridiculous. You are at the highest point of the caldera, with the caldera wrapping around on either side. It might be the best view on the island, though the view is spectacular from virtually everywhere.

And we were soooo glad we stayed in Imerovigli, which was so quiet and peaceful and away from the crowds and the cheap crap in Fira, and the crowds and upscale crap in IA. Olympia was so friendly and helpful with every need we had. We really enjoyed both of the nearby restaurants, especially Mezzes (sp.?). We also absolutely loved Vinilia restaurant, which is about half way between Imerovigli and Fira.

The rooms each have a lovely outdoor seating area, and are cave houses so nice and cool inside, with a nice breeze througout the day.

We walked to IA for the sunset one evening - about a 6 mile walk and wished I had not worn sandles as the path was more rugged than I expected, but beautiful.

We took a day trip to Ios and that was a highlight. Guidebook said it woudl be crowded with young partiers, but we had the most beautiful beach all to ourselves. Rent a car and drive the island -- it is beautiful.

Olympia is the best hostess. She assisted us in our every need including a car rental. With the car rental she waited in the street with us until it arrived. Morning breakfast is huge and her homemade preserves delicious. The rooms are decorated with simple, elegant taste. The view of the caldera I think is the best on the island. Every morning we woke up and went to sleep with a breathtaking view of the caldera. Price of the rooms is outstanding for Santorini. It was wonderful...

Room Tip: all rooms have a wonderful view but the superior rooms are at the top of the cliff and well worth th...

We stayed there for 3 nights earlier this summer.
It represents an excellent value for money choice in Imerovigli, as it is close to the central road, you avoid tiresome stairs and the view to the caldera and the volcano is very nice; if you are looking for a fully unobstructed view to the sea, you might get a bit disappointed though, as there are other buildings right and left, somewhat limiting your viewpoint.
The landlady is very courteous and personally prepares breakfast with homemade jams and other goodies.
Overall a very good option.

Views are amazing. It's very quiet here, yet only a 15 minute walk to Fira. Perfect place to be on Santorini. Olympia is a great host, very helpful. Breakfast on the patio was fantastic every morning. We stayed in an advanced apartment but I think all the rooms are just as good. Definitely recommend. There's no reason to go to Oia to watch the sunset, the patio here is the best place to watch it. Go down to the small grocery store down the road, get a bottle of wine and relax as the sun sets.
