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

Our stay at the Casa Sofia in Santorini was absolutely beautiful. The house was well kept and Maria made sure our arrival/departure and stay were smooth. The view from this location was beautiful.
We were very happy to be received at the end of the taxi ride and help with our bags down the steps. The pace was a good as we expected and very comfortable.
Maria's place was beautiful and exactly as described. Her communication was great as well. We did not have the chance to meet Maria, but she organized a cab from the airport for us and a porter met us at the bus station and helped us with our bags and finding the apartment. Maria checked in with us via phone. She also left maps and restaurant suggestions which worked out nicely. We would definitely suggest staying at this place while in Santorini
Casa Sophia is definitely a wonderful place to stay. The from the terrace
and kitchen window you see one of one of the most beautiful views in the
world--the caldera of Santorini. Yes, you certainly get your cardio workout
hiking up and down the steep stone stairs for 15 minutes each time you want
to get to the bus or the parking lot. Yes, the bathroom is outside.
(Something we didn't realize when we rented it. Probably not such a problem
in the summer but we happened to be there when it snowed!) Yes, there isn't
really a 'living room' or place to relax. But to wake up and look out on
that unbroken vista of blue ocean and distant mountains is the experience of
a lifetime and worth any inconvenience. We cooked breakfast there and wished
the kitchen was a little better stocked, but it was adequate. The house was
kept clean every day by the housekeeper and the porter was ready and waiting
to help us with our luggage. Even during that extremely cold weather, the
house stayed warm. When there was a problem with the power Maria had it
fixed immediately. We truly enjoyed all the friendly cats who visited daily.
But best of all, that magnificent view!
I actually stayed in one of the owner's other homes because I was visiting in the low season (the town of Oia pretty much closes altogether in December). Everything was convenient, as described/pictured, and the owner was courteous and responsive. She set up transportation and a porter to help us with our bags which was very nice considering the twin is situated on a mountain...
We had the most peaceful, relaxing time while visiting Santorini. Maria sent someone to pick us up at the bus/taxi terminal, and the house was within walking distance- very central and with the best views!
Maria was very helpful in organising a cab to pick us up from the airport and making sure a porter was there to greet us and show us around the apartment. The location is stunning and can't be beaten - picture perfect Santorini. The apartment/house was big and had lots of space, cosy with free wifi. All in all a great place located steps for the main shopping street and bus station.
