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

We had a lovely stay. It's in the perfect location! The guy carried our heavy bags up and down from the bus terminal. Such a gem! And Maria was so nice and helpful as well. Thank you so much!

Maria's place is amazing! It is perfectly equipped with the basic you need to enjoy your stay. We enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning - you can't beat the view. It was very nice to have an umbrella to be able to find shade if necessary - while the weather in Oia was perfect during our stay, the direct sun did get a bit warm! It's good to note that the bathroom is detached from the main house - you have to exit the front door and cross the patio to enter the bathroom. This wasn't much of an issue for us, but be sure to bring pajamas that you don't mind your neighbors seeing! Oia is definitely a tourist location, so be prepared to crowd dodge every time you leave/come home. It was fun to browse the shops and restaurants, but we mostly shopped at the supermarket to save on meals. There is a local bakery on the main street that has amazing bread and pastries, as well as a delicious gyro place near the bus stops that has gyros for under 3 euro - what a deal! The concierge Maria that the host Maria arranges made the trip absolutely wonderful! She told us about a local pool that we spent quite a bit of time at, as well as directions to the cliff diving spot. She even made us dinner reservations at one of her favorite restaurants! The concierge is an invaluable resource for getting tips on places to visit and activities, as well as helping you arrange any activities. The highlight of our trip was hands down the evening catamaran tour with Sunset Oia. Swimming, snorkeling, chef-prepared dinner with unlimited drinks, and ending the night with a sunset viewing from the boat in Amoudi Bay - it was absolutely breathtaking. We would do it again in a heartbeat!

The place is well located. All is clean and perfect. When you arrive, someone comes to get you. We spent beautiful time in there and we slept very well. I recommend it to everyone who want a magical time.

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Maria's place in Oia. She booked us a taxi from the airport and had a porter there to help us with the bags and show us where the apartment was. We got in late at night so this was very helpful. Maria came the next morning and gave us a map of Santorini and explained EVERYTHING that you'd want to know for your trip. We texted her via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) a few times for various suggestions/questions and she was always quick to respond. It was really great having someone so helpful and kind as our host. As for the apartment, the view is absolutely stunning, it looks fake! There are a decent amount of steps from the "main street" in Oia down to the apartment, but it was worth walking every one. You have a great view of the volcano and there was a nice patio where you can sit, have breakfast and enjoy the view. There is plenty of room in the apartment, although we spent most of our time exploring the beautiful island of Santorini. There are plenty of shops and restaurants within easy walking distance of the apartment. If you want to venture around more of the island, you can either rent a car or take the bus; both are very close to the apartment as well (less than 10 minute walk). We saw one of the very popular pictures of Santorini of the blue-top church on the listing and weren't sure if it was just a photo of Santorini or one by the apartment; it is definitely by the apartment. That iconic photo spot is about 20 steps up from the apartment and you get to see that view every time to you walk up and down the stairs to the apartment. I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Santorini. You won't regret it!!

Maria's property is in the heart and soul of Oia. It sits below the beautiful white-washed, blue crowned churches with an unobstructive view of the volcano and water. GORGEOUS!! It's as authentic as they come! 101 steps down & up from and to the foot path. Great workout! Absolutely will return to this property someday.

This was the perfect place to stay in Oia. Beautiful cave home right below the 3 blue domes famous in Oia. Loved the views from the balcony and loved everything else about our stay. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Santorini!

We loved staying here! Maria's team helped us get to Oia, carry our suitcases to the home (no simple task), and make plans for our weekend in Santorini. They shared the best beaches, booked us a Catamaran tour of the island, and told us how to use the public transit. The home has a beautiful view and is in an ideal location.

Traditionally Cycladic quality accommodation, superb locations & Very Personal Service promise that dream vacation you were always looking for.
