This morning we packed up and loaded our gear into our rental car. We checked out of our hotel and then drove to Amoudi Bay. It was a cute little Harbour town but was totally deserted. We walked around there, exploring, for a while and then drove back to Oia where we dropped off our car. We walked to a nearby restaurant and had brunch there, taking …
This morning we went and had breakfast at the local Starbucks and then wondered around the shopping district nearby. We went back to our hotel at midday and checked out and they kindly agreed to store some of our luggage for us as we will return there in a couple of days, when we get back to from Santorini. We then walked to the train station and …
... bustling shopping streets this should go a long way to telling you to lay off the drink AND get your eyes tested. It was a hot afternoon, so it called for a number of stops in cool churches - one is named after a large number of virgin births linked to Saturday nights out in Whitley Bay - the Church of the Immaculate Conception. A short stop for iced coffee brings us to what will be one of the memories from our trip and also a link with Jimmy Nail. You may be thinking ...

OUCH !! 3 am soon arrived and Louise expressed that she needed to sleep, as she is the first one off to the airport at 11am the following day. As our friends bid their farewells, email and facebook names were exchanged as were as huge hearty hugs. (I hope to catch up with each and every one ...

The legend of Atlantis, of a great city destroyed and fallen into the sea, is likely to have evolved from this real and catastrophic event.

Historical Traveler Reviews Strogili Traditional Houses Oia
Fabulous view, comfortable and reasonable
After several trips to Oia, I decided to book a room with a view..well we got a million dollar view for about 100 Euros.
Short walk to the center of town, but comfy beds, mini kitchen,tv,
ac and that view!!! We were there for just two nights, but we wiil definitely return...stylish but simple with many sweet touches.
Nice pool which we did not use, and a location that is a bit from the maddening crowd..mini market next door supplied us with anything we needed for snacks and basics. We will return!
Haben im September für 4 Tage im Strogili Houses gewohnt, nachdem es uns von einem Freund empfohlen wurde. Das Hotel hatte alles, was wir uns vorgestellt hatten. Das Zimmer war sehr komfortabel und der Pool einfach atemberaubend. Das Hotel liegt direkt neben. Die Terrasse ist voller Blumen, dort haben wir auch gefrühstückt. Nebenan waren wir im kleinen Lebensmittelladen einkaufen. Die Halle von Oia ist nur einen kurzen Fußmarsch entfernt und direkt am Hotel liegt eine Bushaltestelle. Wir würden Ihnen den Bus zu jeweils 1 Euro pro Ticket empfehlen. Die Straße nach Oia und Firatown ist recht gefährlich. Die Einheimischen überholen recht oft einfach auf dem Seitenstreifen oder den Engen Kurven in den Bergen. Ein tolles Hotel, das von natürlicher Schönheit umringt ist und dazu noch günstig ist.
Sehr schön. Super Lage
Was für ein Hotel. Tolle Lage und die Bushaltestelle war direkt am Hotel. Sie sollten unbedingt bis an das Ende der Stadt fahren, um sich den Sonnenuntergang anzusehen. Nebenan gibt es einen tollen kleinen Lebensmittelladen, der von einer Kanadierin geführt wird. Die Appartments sind einfach klasse, die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und dies ist noch einer der wenigen Orte, an denen die Bilder noch mit der Realität übereinstimmen. Fahren Sie auf jeden Fall dort hin. Sie sollten nicht vergessen im kleinen Hotel auf der anderen Seite der Insel zu essen, dort gibt es ein sehr gutes Lamm.
Our one week stay at Strogili Houses was the highlight of our family's visit to Greece in July 2006.
I just can't say enough good things about this hotel! The views from their balconies are incredibly breathtaking. The owners are kind, accomodating and always available. They brought breakfast to us every morning and it was delicious. The rooms are simply and tastefully decorated in Santorinian style. They are clean and have equipped kitchenettes. The property is surrounded by flowering and colorful plants.
In July 2006, we stayed at the Strogili Apartments in Oia on the Island of Santorini (Thera) for 5 days with our family of 15 gathered for a wedding. Having so many rooms, we enjoyed a variety of their facility from Studio to Apartment style accommodations.
Absolutely lovely. Great Location
What an amazing place. Great location, Bus stop was right outside, walk to the end of the town to watch the sunset, great little grocery store owned by a canadian woman. The appartments are amazing. the owners are very friendly and its one of the few places where the picture is exactly as the place itself. go there. and be sure to eat at the small hotel on the other side of the island, great lamb.
Greece was wonderful . Santorini was a delight , but Oia , a tiny village in the north of Santorini was a postcard come alive.Detergent manufacturers should look at Oia as a location shoot - I have never seen such intense , brilliant white - the walls and steps, the odd houses that arise in a seemingly haphazard cluster from the sheer volcanic cliffs - a cubist painter's inspiration and delight . Contrasted with the deep azure blue of the sea and the milder sky , its almost surreal . But dazzlingly beautiful .
Great but reasonable!
We stayed at the Strogili houses for four days in September upon recommendation from friends. The place had everything we wanted. The room was very comforable, the view outstanding and the pool terrific. The hotel is right on the side of the Caldera. The terrace is full of flowers. We ate breakfast on the terrace and shopped in the little grocery next door. The all of
Oia is an easy walk from this hotel . There is a bus stop in front of the hotel so it's very easy to get around. We recommened you travel by bus at the cost of one euro. The road between Oia and Firatown is quite challenging. The locals go very fast around shoulderless mountain curves. A great place to stay surrounded by natural beauty and at a reasonable price.
