“Top of the pops!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

We have booked a 5 night stay at Chez Sophie as a start for our 2 week honeymoon. Tina was an amazing hostess. She gave us tips where to go and what to do in Santorini. The room was always clean and breakfast was good. Tina's homemade jams are soooo good, especially the carrot one.Tina also drove us back to the airport! Regarding the location, Kamari is not actually in the heart of Santorini, however, its a nice location with ample restaurants and a nice long walk along the Kamari beach. Its only 15minutes away by bus from Fira. To end, if we were to visit Santorini again, we would surely stay again at Chez Sophie and I recommend others to do so as well. Thank you Tina!

Kamari is a little off the beaten track, but only 15 mins from Fira by bus regular bus service €1.60 or taxi €10-15 each way. Chez Sophie is probably the best choice you can make in Kamari. Yes there are a number of very nice hotels, some right on the beach, but chez Sophie offers excellent value accommodation,modern and well maintained. Tina is a great hostess who will look after you well. She helped us get our bearings very quickly for our 3 night stay and her breakfasts are simple, but very enjoyable. She's a very attentive hostess. Our room had a full view of the sea and beach, very clean, comfortable, with modern fitments and small fridge. It was frankly perfect for what we wanted and it was actually quite nice to come back to Kamari after the hustle and bustle of Fira and Oia.....and no cruise ship crowds to be seen. Loads of good restaurants nearby to choose from. The prom runs for about 1km so a good walk after dinner. Ancient Fira is about a 45 minute walk uphill right next to Chez Sophie, so a good option for a cloudy day! The swimming pool is quite small, but there was always loads of room and sun loungers when we choose to sit around the pool in the afternoon. We didn't use the beach much but the water was clear and calm.

We would highly recommend Kamari as a base to explore Santorini and Chez Sophie as the perfect choice.

We stayed at Chez Sophie for 3 nights from 24th May. My first interaction with Tina, the owner started when i received her mail post my booking at www.booking.com. Thereafter all my mails were promptly answered by her. The other reviews on TA have already talked in detail about how wonderful she is and every word of what has been written by others is so very true. Tina was always there with suggestions when we needed them. Her recommendation of enjoying the a quiet and romantic sunset at Firostefani was bang on. Of course the sunset at Oia is not to be missed though it can get very crowded as practically every tourist heads to Oia. The breakfast spread was great with yummy croissants, mini cheese and sausage pies. The location of the hotel at Kamari make it a very quiet option yet within a 10 min walk to lots of tavernas and a 15 min bus drive to Fira. We would definitely come back to Santorini and Chez Sophie

We stayed at Chez Sophie from 20th May for 3 nights. Tina (our wonderful hostess-the owner) very kindly fetched us from the airport (10 -15 min drive from the airport). Chez Sophie is a lovely hotel just a minute away from Kamari beach (lots of restaurants , shops etc). Location is perfect as its right in the middle of the action , yet it's quiet as its in a lane.
We had a ground floor suite with a double bedroom which opened to a smaller room ,we were travelling with our 12 year old, (so the room with a single bed was perfect). The room opened out to a small patio which opened out to the the pool. The room and the hotel was spotlessly clean.(Rooms are cleaned everyday). Room was well equipped with all the amenities and a very good size for a family.
Tina suggested that we do the boat trip which takes us to the volcanic mountain-hot springs-thirassa-oia sunset. It was a great day spent and the oia sunset is just spectacular, (though we did it the next day). We also did the wine museum which was a nice way to spend a windy morn (very uncommon for summer) in Santorini.
Special mention for Tina's warm hospitality ( she is so helpful and accommodating, also arranged our transport back to the airport), and her delicious breakfasts...yummy croissants,mini sausage pies and marmalades which she makes ( orange and carrot are a must try!!!).
Will definitely stay here again when we go back to Santorini....only regret....should have stayed a few more days!!!!

The hotel is really near the beach. Rely easy to get to all the restaurants. Rooms are really clean and owner is probably one of the nicest people I have ever come across! Her homemade jam is fantastic! Overall one of the nicest hotels I have been at in Greece.

We stayed at Chez Sophie for two nights and I cannot say enough about Tina's hospitality, charm and pastries! She was so helpful before we arrived with arranging another hotel for us because she was booked for the dates that we needed, then ended up getting us into her hotel when we arrived in Kamari! We were unfamiliar with Kamari and her place was hard to find, but it is actually in the best location of any hotel!! I wish we could have stayed longer to get more rest at this peaceful paradise: Chez Sophie. Thanks Tina! We'll be back!!

My husband and I stayed here with our 2 children for 3 weeks in Aug and Sept. We are from Canada, and have family in the area. Our options and recommendations for places to stay were plenty. I chose Chez Sophie based on its review and what seemed great value based on the feedback. Well, it did not disappoint. Tina and her family were amazing. Kind, friendly and more than accomodating. Amazing cheese cake..thanx for sharing Tina! The location is quiet, the establishment small and modern in comparison to many of its neighbors. It was also very clean. It appears we may be back again in 2013 and I will be sure to call Tina as soon as the tickets are booked. If you are looking for simple, modern, clean, quiet, comfortable accomodations with amazing hosts...this is your spot. Recommend = 100%
