The room was well laid out and very clean-the manager was helpful and efficient. The walk to the rooms was a challenge but doable-the roads in Oia get very busy with coaches and there aren't many paths-the beach had black sand so wear overshoes

About the neighborhood
During the 18th and 19th century, the village of Oia experienced the prosperity of the naval merchandise. In Finikia lived the farmers who worked in the valley and vineyards, but also the captains of Oia had their summer homes and canavas.

Today, Finikia is a small, well-preserved traditional village now united with Oia with just 10 minutes walking distance. You can stay and experience the feeling of tranquility and authenticity, visiting the beautiful beaches and vineyards in the vicinity of th...
