About this listing
We would like to welcome you to our beautiful island Santorini to experience the hospitality and the friendliness of the local people, and our old traditions which are known only on our island.
Our family owns 2 old houses in the old traditional area of Fira, which is the capital of Santorini. We have recently renovated them, and we did our best to ensure that they would keep their character and unique style: High ceiling roofs, thick stone-made walls, to keep the rooms cool during the summer and warm during the winter. As they didn’t have access to wood as a building material, the old habitats of Santorini used to “carv” their houses and their furniture into stone hills or caves.
It’s a perfect place for couples, families, elder people and everyone else who will appreciate one of the most beautiful and quiet area of the island, while being just a breath away from the main square and the magnificent caldera view.
Fira is a town built around the island’s famous caldera, 200m. above the sea, which offers a panoramic view of the whole island, the volcano and the surroundings islands
Fira is located in the centre of the island, from here you can easily have access to all the other villages.
You will find here all local facilities:
restaurants, cafes and nightclubs,
museums, banks, pharmacies.
the cable car, which leads to the old port
Distances from Calderimi:

In the price is included the transfer from the port/airport.
Amazing traditional house only steps away from the centre of Fira in the real/less touristy part of Fira where real people live. It gave us a very good feel of the place. It was quite, on a small alley of the old Fira. We loved the place, very spacious, beautifully decorated, with ac and reliable wifi, cute courtyard. And of course Vivi was the best: she was very easy to communicate with, picked us up at the ferry terminal and drove us to the place, called a taxi for us on the way back. She was very pleasant and sweet and left a cake for us upon arrival. Wonderful place! Would stay again any time!
This is a beautiful apartment in a quiet but central area in Fra. The decor is lovely and the kitchen very well equipped. Viva was very kind and welcoming (including an early morning car rides to the port). Recommended!
Vivi met us at the airport and acquainted us with the island on our trip to the apartment. The apartment was clean and comfortable. She fixed us fabulous spinach pie. It was an easy place to stay and central to Thira.
Maison traditionnelle très proche du centre, avec les avantages et les inconvénients. Notamment pas mal de bruit, les scooters vrombissent tôt le matin ! Mais on est a quelques minutes de la caldeira et ses splendides paysages. Vivi a été accueillante et discrète.
Our stay at Vivi's house was everything we had hoped for. Vivi was very friendly and helpful with all our needs - she met us at the port, gave us lots of useful information and little treats to eat and drink, yet respected our privacy. The delightful accommodation reflected the local tradition and was exactly as described, including a very cool, spacious bedroom, well equipped kitchen ( including tea, coffee, fruit, etc), and sunny courtyard. The house was very near the centre - just a few minutes walk to the Caldera, bus station, etc. I would highly recommend this accommodation.
This is an adorable apartment, well situated close to the bus stop and the main drag but quiet at night. Even though the weather was quite hot the apartment stays nice and cool; we never needed to use the AC. Vivi was great meeting us at the port and driving us to the apartment and let us leave our luggage for 4 hrs after checkout on our last day as we had a later flight. And the cake she left us was very tasty!
Vivi came to pick us up at the port. Vivi is a very warm and friendly host.The traditional family house is very beautiful and equip with all necessities. The house is very spacious with a wonderful kitchen.The bus stop and restaurants are at the walking distance.Highly recommended for those looking for a peaceful relaxing holiday.
