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

Best trip ever!! Still here! Haha. It's a shame we have to leave today. This trip has been incredible, Maria and Vasilles have been incredible. I recommend anyone staying in Santorini to stay at one of Maria's LOVELY villas. My wife and I stayed in three of her villas and every single one was absolutely perfect. Seriously. We will be doing this again and again and we will be staying with Maria.
The room is big and clean. The location is good, compare to the price you just paid. The sunset view is good, but not perfect. The house is not build high enough to see the full view of sunset. So we have to clime up to a small place next to our house, where is quite dangerous to climb. The check in and check out time is quite restrict, since Oia is a very popular place to stay. The internet is very good, compare to other places. All in all, it's a good place for those who have small budget.
We stayed at two of Maria's properties - Stella's House and Villa Marina. We would highly recommend both homes, and would stay in Villa Marina again in a heartbeat.
While we never met Maria, she was always quick to respond and eager to make our stay wonderful. She arranged transportation to/from the airport for us, and even printed our Ryanair boarding passes when we couldn't find somewhere to print them on the island. The porter, Vasili, met us at the Oia taxi terminal to help us with our luggage and check us into the house.
We stayed at Stella's House our first night because Villa Marina was booked. The four of us (two couples) agreed that this place would have been difficult to stay at for the entire week because it is quite small - we were right on top of each other and there was little privacy. Still, the place was clean and lovely, with a fully stocked kitchen and gorgeous sunset views. The location was excellent.
Villa Marina was our dream come true - tons of space (we were four, the place sleeps nine) with a large terrace right in the middle of Oia. The two bedrooms are in two separate cave houses, so there was plenty of space and privacy. The view from this villa is the most famous and beautiful in all of Oia. The only frustrating thing about that was the CONSTANT stream of people taking pictures and making noise at the entryway. This means lots of noise and no privacy from your balcony, but we'd say the views and location make it worth it. Also please note that one of the bathrooms is separate from the bedroom and you have to walk outside to get there - right in front of the aforementioned throng of tourists that are always taking pictures. That was a little annoying, since I felt the need to be fully clothed for each trip to the shower/restroom.
All in all, the accommodations were fantastic and we would highly recommend booking with Maria!
We stayed in 2 properties from Maria - this one and one other that has the volcano view (Seacrest or Seavilla, I believe). Both properties were wonderful - exactly as pictures show. We were traveling with 2 adults and a 13 year old and 23 year old. Both properties comfortable for 4. Although it is important to remember that almost all of the properties on this island are on the smaller side so you have to go with that in mind. We did end up preferring the view and location on the volcano side because it seemed less busy - but that is to be expected. Maria was fantastic at scheduling a taxi at the airport for us and a porter to help with luggage - which is a must because there are so many steps to get to most apts. If possible, my only suggestion for travelers is to pack light - take as little luggage as possible.
I booked this villa as a present for my parents who were travelling in Europe - they said this place was the absolute highlight. Easy and accessible. Superb location. All the amenities you could need and obviously a unbelievable view. I couldn't be happier with the booking and will hopefully get a chance to stay here myself sometime soon.
Maria and her crew were extremely accommodating. she booked a mini bus to come grab us from the airport and they handled our ride back as well. we were taken right to the front door and given a tour and rundown of the city/culture/where to eat/etc. even though we had a pretty late flight, our guide Vasily was in no rush to leave. the flat was absolutely gorgeous right in the heart of Oia, with the most desired sunset view right outside the front door. had a beautiful view out the front bedroom window as well. can't wait to come back. thank you Maria!
