Oia, pronounced ‘Ia’, is the most famous of all villages of Santorini. It is known throughout the world for its quiet life and fantastic sunset, and is certainly the most beautiful and picturesque village of Santorini.
The village is also situated on top of an impressive cliff and offers a spectacular view over the volcano of Palia and Nea Kameni and the island of Thirassia.
Oia is situated on the north of the island, 11 km away from Fira.
It is a traditional village with charming houses in narrow streets, blue domed churches, and sun-bathed verandas. Its streets have plenty of tourist shops, taverns, cafés, and other shops.
Oia has several cultural attractions like the Maritime Museum which houses a small library, items from the maritime life of the area, and the vestiges of a Venetian fortress.
Many artists fell in love with the area and settled there. For that reason, the village of Oia has many art galleries.
Oia also has a small port, Ammoudi, which can be reached by a set of 300 steps leading down. There, small boats can take you opposite, to the island of Thirassia. The beach of Armenis is also located there. Taverns in Oia offer visitors tasty meals of fresh fish

Staying at Stella´s house was amazing! Sunset view from Stella´s House is gorgeous and beautiful. There is no words to describe it! We enjoyed comfortably from our own terrace a dreamed sunset and Caldera views for breakfasts, dinners or drinks.
The house is exactly as you can see at the pictures, even better. If you are interested in cooking some meals by yourself, there is everything you need (kitchenware, coffee maker, owen, etc.). We stayed for a week and they cleaned our house and changed towels & bedding every single day. Wifi works perfectly. Everything we can say is positive and we highly recommend it if you visit Santorini.
The communication with Maria was very easy and useful. Because of the situation of the houses at Oia -it´s not easy to find them- they met us at Oia´s bus station to help us with our luggage and take us to the house. Maria and Vasilis were really kind, courteous and attentive.
In addition to everything, we would like to thanks to Maria again because we had the opportunity to stay at ‘The Dream House’ for our first night in Santorini instead of the house we agreed previously for that night and it was absolutely breathtaking, like a dream come true.
We are looking forward to come back soon to Santorini and we are sure we would do it with Maria´s houses!
La description du logement correspondait à ce que j'ai vu. Le lieu était superbe. La terrasse permettait d'admirer le coucher du soleil, c'est la vue idéale de Oia. Ce fut un plaisir de loger dans une maison troglodyte. La décoration n'est pas très moderne, mais reste sobre. Nous avons pu cuisiner et bien dormir au frais grâce à la climatisation. Le local pour la machine à laver est très humide et sent fort si on ouvre la porte. Dommage que pour ce prix, le parasol soit cassé. La personne qui nous accueille et gère une partie de nos bagages est très gentille et serviable. Le service de ménage quotidien est appréciable. Belle adresse, à faire !!!
Our stay in Stella house was really great. The view is amazing, for the breakfast or the sunset. Maria was very helpfull and provide us the tickets for the catamaran tour which was great. We recommend.
This house was one of the best holiday homes we have stayed in. The special cave house feeling, the traditional decor, large rooms, amusing things for my kids, well equipped kitchen, unbelievable view from the private terrace, the proximity of the house from the main street, the sunset view from our terrace while having icecream and playing chess in the evening, looking at the boats at Amoudi bay settling into the darkness of the night from the terrace over a glass of wine and the most amazing feel and view of the sea from the bedroom window !! OMG its just been two days since we are back in London, and I am already missing this beautiful home in Oia.
Watching the sunset from our terrace with hundreds of people around and above on the main street and the castle... the festive atmosphere with everyone clapping and cheering as the sun set .. those moments we will cherish forever ! Ok maybe as some reviewers have said, the sunset view is not direct.. but then there is ample of private space around the house where we can perch and have the best sunset views.
Maria was a brilliant host, very good at her communications before and during our stay. She gave us good tips to make the most of the island. Her porter Versili is a star. All our luggage was handled by him most efficiently. (I would strongly advice you to travel light in Santorini). Also I must mention the surprise element of the cleaner who came home and tidied the house, changed sheets and also did the dishes. I did not get a chance to meet her but she was like the 'fairy wand' I always keep wishing for in London when I dont want to tidy the house myself :)
The two bedroom house is very spacious even with my two little kids running around and playing all the while. The kitchen has got almost everything. I would advice to get a little bit of salt, sugar, tea bags, coffee and butter/oil for the duration of your stay. Not worth shopping for these small bits in Oia. The Mini market and the MIni Mini market just above the house are well stocked up but we preferred to shop for the week from the main super market near the bus station. There is a washing machine and also fast Wifi connection in the house. Air condition is perfect. The bathroom is nice too.
We are two adults and two little kids, very enthusiastic and we love living the life of the locals at holidays. If you have similar interest and are not after the super luxurious all inclusive holidays, then this place will impress you as much as it did enchant us. We spent the most amazing happy family time in the house and exploring the beautiful island of Santorini.
Thanks Maria and her helpers.. Good luck and hope to see you again.
The apt has a wonderful view!!! We enjoyed our one day here. It's such a pity that we didn't stay in this apt for more days!! We enjoyed all the things in this apt although there're so much steps and a little hard to get to the apt.
Changed our house without informing us. The bathroom inside couldn't be used due to the spoilt heater, the water leaking from basin which caused the whole floor wet at the outside bathroom. Not exactly a good spot to watch sunset ( some blocking view) , you have to walk further down to get a better view
Amazing place! Highly recommended. The house is comfortable and in a perfect location. Maria and the porter were very helpful and responsive. There are many steps down to and up from the house so if you have great difficulty walking on steps this might not be the place for you. Otherwise this house is a great choice for your stay in Oia!
Be aware that you cannot see the sunset from the house in late June. But a short walk either just below or above the house gives you full view of the sunset. The house is also very near the public pool, which is probably the most beautiful public pool I have ever visited. You just have to buy a drink or lunch to swim there.
If we return to Oia in the future, we will definitely book Stella's house again!
