This is budget accommodation with the 5 star treatment. Fabulous 2 level room with a balcony overlooking the sea and sunsets. Kostas the manager is so friendly and helpful; he really goes all the way making sure you are enjoying your stay. Generous breakfast served on your balcony, with free pick up and drop service to port/airport.
20 minute scenic walk along the coast gets you to Fira. 5 minute walk to good restaurants, supermarket and bus. Fabulous!

Lightening that lit the entire room through the windows and seemingly even through the doors. I kept thinking I should really get up and look outside and see if we were going to be blown off the hilltop. Finally I did at one point ...
Oia is heavily publicised as a place where crowds gather to see an amazing sunset over the Aegean. Naomi's good research warns us we would probably prefer to be back enjoying the perfectly wonderful sunset from our own little perch. So we enjoy a most excellent rooftop lunch - best fava beans - then head for the bus. Almost too late to make our escape; the masses are pouring in and within minutes some streets have become impassable. For a ...

Before heading back to the hotel and trying our luck again, we went to Fira's Archeological Museum. It's a small museum and contains objects from ancient Akrotiri and Thira and some other Cycladic figurines. It was amazing to see the detail and fine pottery work, especially knowing that it was more than 3,500 years old.
To our great relief, we were able to check in at our hotel when we arrived there at 11h00. The ...
