I am lost of words to describe how wonderful our stay in EcoXenia has been. Christopher is an extraordinary host. He was really caring, accommodating, thoughtful and informative. Since we arrived to Oia, Christopher was always making sure we had everything we needed it, making our stay really enjoyable and relaxing.
EcoXenia has everything you need to have a wonderful holidays in Thera. Being located outside Oia make it even more relaxing. We didn't have a car but we could borrow Christopher's bicycles and he gave us several rides when we needed them. If you take the bikes be aware that coming back from Oia to the studio is easier than going up the hill! We loved it, though. The fields were covered in beautiful wild yellow flowers.
Our studio was stunning: the views beautiful, the room perfectly clean, enough utensil to cook simple meals, comfortable beds with warm blanckets, heating and really hot water!! (We stayed in winter so, all of this was quite handy).
When I said that I was going to Santorini in winter, some people asked me why I didn't want to wait for summer. Now I can say to everybody that Santorini is an amazing island any time of the year...and in winter there is an interesting cine club located in a marvelous venue. We missed it this time but we are looking forward to come back to Ecixenia and join in.
I would strongly recommend EcoXenia as the perfect accommodation in Oia if you want to get away from crowds in summer.
Don't look for more places and go to EcoXenia, you will not have any regrets!
From arrival to leaving, everything(!) went so smooth and well for us!
We were heartily welcomed by Petros (because Christopher was on a trip himself) and he took good care of us. He was always worried that we were comfortable at the utmost, and actually we really felt home at Ecoxenia!
Beside the cozy room, the cleanliness of the place, the Jacuzzi and the ocean view, we enjoyed the beautiful garden with lots of places to relax! We also had barbecues on two evenings, which we enjoyed a lot.
We could also rent some bikes from Petros and did a nice, sweaty bike tour along the coast on a sunny day.
Get off the touristy places of Oía and Fira, and stay at Ecoxenia - you won't regret it!!!
Thank you, Petros & Christopher, for sharing your beautiful place. We wish you all the best and hope to see you again some time soon in the future!
Our kitchenette unit at Eco-xenia was perfect for the two of us. It was clean and comfortable, located as advertised close to Oia with a beautiful ocean view and lush tropical gardens.
The studio was beautiful with gorgeous views and although the property isn't in the center of Oia it is close enough to be convenient and far enough away to be peaceful and away from all the tourists. Christopher has provided us with great customer service, even giving us a ride to town when we needed it, and making phone calls on our behalf to rent a car and get food delivery. You have everything you need here including a refrigerator, small stove and all utensils one might need to cook. There was wonderful hot water and the bed was very comfortable. Overall, great stay!! Thanks so much Christopher, we hope to come back soon.
It is really fantastic to stay in EcoXenia! The host is totally a nice and kind-hearted guy. That was the best day of our trip in Santorini. The room is quite clean and well-organized. We have a good view of sea from our room. We are surely appreciate that Christopher also gave us a lot of help.Everything is perfect.We will choose here again and strongly recommend to everyone!
We've had such a lovely time in Santorini - thanks to Christopher! Communications with him had been breezy - very prompt & clear responses. He even helped us booked for airport transfers and a rental car for the trip. It was delivered right to our room and process was hassle free.
The room was clean, cozy and very sweet. it has a nice view of the sea and I absolutely LOVE the balcony. The balcony was big, spacious, with a little dining/coffee table and 2 lounge chairs. We made dinner on some nights and ate under the stars listening to the sound of the crickets. We sat and took naps under the stars after that on the lounge chairs. It was such a romantic setting.
The toilet was clean and complete. It had hot water at all times and sufficient amenities. The bed is comfortable. The room comes with a little kitchen, we cooked breakfast and some dinners there. It has sufficient cooking utensils, we just bought our own ingredients.
Location wise, we had a rental car - so it was perfect for us. Just a couple of minutes drive from Oia town, we had the liberty to visit the beautiful village a couple of times. Had a few dinners there watching the beautiful sunset. Upon arrival Christopher greeted us with some wine and a vast explanation about getting around and some restaurant recommendations. We appreciated that and that night itself - started driving around exploring Oia and had a great dinner by the sea.
The nearest grocery store is also very near, about a 2 minute drive down the road.
I would highly recommend anyone considering this place to book it. It'll make the Santorini dream even more perfect! :)
If you go to Santorini, stay at Christopher's place. It's absolutely perfect! The property is beautiful and well-maintained. The rooms are clean, adorable and have everything you need — we used the kitchenette for a few meals, and enjoyed the famous Oia sunset from our balcony.
When we first arrived, Christopher made us coffees, shared suggestions for eateries and activities in the area and answered some of our questions. He was extremely helpful, and was always willing to answer our (frequent) questions. He helped us contact our car rental company, gave us a ride from town, and helped us start a wood fire barbecue on the grounds (which is available and worth trying out!).
The property is a few minutes' drive outside Oia. I would highly recommend renting a car—we were undecided before we arrived and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made.
But in summary—I only have good things to say about this place. I'd love to go back!
The villa and property are very beautiful. Great gardens, jacuzzi, hammocks. Perfect secluded location to get away from it all.
It's perfect if you have transportation as it is only a few kms Oia. However, be aware it's on the lower point of Oia and overlooks the south west.
The villa itself had everything you could want including a balcony.
We will stay again
We had a great stay! Location was ideal because you are in a secluded part of the island BUT still close enough to walk or take an ATV up the street to Oia! Receiving tips from the host regarding where to visit was helpful as there are for example sooo many different restaurant options. The room was very clean with comfortable beds and plenty of privacy! The only complaint we had (which is totally out of the hosts control) were the neighborhood dogs barking through the majority of the night!
The host assisted with arranging taxi service and placing some other calls for us (set up ATV delivery and called a museum to see if they were open)!
We recently stayed at EcoXenia for 6 days whilst visiting Santorini and could not have hoped for a more accommodating host. From start to finish all our needs were met, in what was a fabulous setting.
We enjoyed the use of the jacuzzi, hammocks in the garden, and Oia as a whole. Christopher advised us were to go and which places to visit, all of which were amazing.
Should we visit again (which we plan on doing), we will definitely look to stay in Oia, and at EcoXenia.
