Santorini's Best Caldera Views
If you go to Santorini, you must take advantage of the Caldera views. This hidden gem helps you do just that, without the snobbery of the other hotels. The hotel manager will do everything to make your stay comfortable. He helped us book the lowest rates on a rental car, guided us to the best restaurants, and generally provided candid advice.
There is a cozy pool with a view that words cannot describe. Each room has a cute mini kitchen so that you can fix snacks or even a meal. Even better, each room has a patio with furniture so that you can take in the view with your food and drink.
I can't recommend this place more. It is a great value.
It's difficult to be original when reviewing this hotel, since after our stay there I can only repeat.
This hotel is lovely.
This is a wonderful place to stay in quiet location
(a perfect place to stay in the most romantic city in the world!)
Ocean view at its best
My husband and I spent a few days in July 06 on Santorini. A friend of ours suggested Nostos Apartments and after a quick check on the web page we decided to go there for a week.
Nostos apartments is located in the fine and picturesque village of Oia. All apartments are built in what we considered typical greek style; traditional houses with white and blue colours - which was exactly what we were looking for. The studio we rent had a beautiful and splendid view over the sea and the so-called Caldera which we enjoyed each morning while having our breakfast on the sunny terrace. The furniture was not poshly but very nice, clean and tasteful as well as the whole facility. In addition we enjoyed the nice and helpful service in a friendly atmosphere. We had a very relaxing and sunny vacation in a beautiful surrounding.

Wonderful romantic stay at Nostos Apartments!
my husband and i spent 5 days last june at the nostos apartments and it was our best holiday ever!
i had always dreamt of going to greece and the greek islands,
and this summer in greece we had such a marvellous time in greece!!!!!!
the most beautiful and romantic place to stay all over greece was santorini, and after reading much about all different villages we decided to stay in oia, and it really was the best option!
once we knew we wanted to stay in oia, for the incredible views, we came across the nostos apartments, which we selected because of the good attention received by owner in our e-mails, nice views on web site, good price, private terrace and brand new pool with those spectacular views to the caldera.
the apartments, all in a traditional cave-style, are very clean and have private terraces overlooking the volcano and the caldera (which is worth the value). they have all you need for small meals (small kitchenette with fridge), air conditioning (although you will not need it bc the cave is cool enough), sun umbrella, and the bathroom towels smell so wel!!
the pool had just been finished last may, so we were able to relax and swim with the incredible views..... what a relax!
the manager andreas is very helpful and friendly and am sure he will do his best to make you feel at home and provide you all information about the island you may need: excursions, car rental, etc, and he speaks very good english.
we would go back to nostos apartments if we went back in santorini, of course. it was a wonderful selection!
also, the hotel is located in a walking distance of the best santorini sunset, and main road with stores, supermarkets ( we recommend "local market" close to the nostos apartments, as the lady is very nice and the prices are quite reasonable, ie 1.5 lt bottle of mineral water was only 0.40 eur! ).
hope you enjoy your stay in oia (pronouced "ia"), with those beautiful colours of the sky and marvellous blue egean sea views and nice weather!
Wunderschöne erholsame Tage !!
Haben die schönsten Tage unseres dreiwöchigen Griechenlandurlaubes in den Nostos Apartments in Oia auf Santorini verbracht.
Es handelt sich hierbei um eine sehr gepflegte, der Architektur angepaßte, einzigartige Anlage mit Pool und einem unbeschreiblichen Blick auf die Caldera. Wir haben es als Wellness pur empfunden. Die Ruhe der Anlage hat sich auf uns übertragen und wir werden lange von diesen Eindrücken zehren.
Sehr empfehlenswert !!! Wir werden wiederkommen !!!
I have to say that Nostos Apartments is one of the most amazing hotels I ahve ever stayed in in my many years of travel. I stayed here with my girlfriend and we both loved it. It is not your high end luxuary hotel, it is more of a minimal apartment style hotel. You feel like you own the building, rather than you are staying in it. The pool is amazing but it is the view that you are paying for. All I have left to say is: Look at these photos I took!
Tiny but cute
Santorini island is a place known for breathtaking view.
Tiny "caves" hanging from the cliff, combine unique view with peaceful environment.
Every year we are spending a long weekend in various establishments in Santorini, and this time we have choosen Nostos apartments.
A complex of 9 apartments of different sizes, provide decent prices, friendly personnel, privacy, and a pool with quite a view !! All the above 10 minutes away from village's centre.
What else to look for.........

Superb view in a relaxing and friendly atmosphere
We have spent 8 fabulous days in Oia staying in this very pleasant and comfortable mini hotel.
The appartment we stayed in was very spacious, fully equipped, styled in simple elegance and The view from the veranda is amazing, the scenery relaxing and the facilities well looked after, comfortable and tranquille.
Andreas, who is managing the place, is very efficient, helpfull and generaly a very nice guy that will try his best to cater for every need you might have. Furthermore he can give you excellent advise regarding where to go around the island, mostly in places non touristic that are secluded interesting and far from the crowd.
The place is highly recommended and very good value for money. You definetely get a lot more that you expect.
Great experience at Nostos Apartments!
My friend and I spent a relaxing three days at Nostos Apartments in Oia in June 2006. We were delighted when we arrived and saw our traditional cave apartment (1-bedroom suite). It was spacious and well-appointed, with a kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom. The manager, Andreas, was extremely helpful and kind. As the other reviewer said, he brought our bags down the stairs and had the rental car agency come to our terrace. Besides exploring Oia, we spent time relaxing in the lounge chairs on our terrace and cooling off in the natural air conditioning of the cave dwelling. We also took a dip in the small pool on the edge of the caldera to cool off. The views from the rooms are stunning, the location of the hotel extremely convenient and quiet, and overall Nostos is just a great place. Highly recommended!!
Fabulous view, fabulous service, fabulous CAVE!!
Just got back from 2 weeks in Greece. Everywhere we went the Greek people were warm, helpful and welcoming. An outstanding example was Nostos Apartments on Santorini.
The property itself is the second closest to the town of Oia, a small absolutely elegant area of Santorini. The views from both rooms we looked at, before selecting the larger suite, were simply breathtaking. The rooms/caves (built into the side of the volcano, are brand new, beautiful, all white, the sheets and towels are all cotton and the kitchenette is well stocked with matching, new plates, silver and glassware. Fridge clean and smells good, the shower amenties were ample and of good quality. Andreas, the manager, was helpful in the extreme, he recommended the best beaches, (make the extra effort and go to the white beach, it's WELL WORTH IT) gave specific directions how to get there, even arranged for a rental company to bring the rental car to us. We filled out the paperwork on the small terrace outside our room. Dare I point out he even ran up and down the stairs with our heavy bags.
Have a great time, we did!

... Now it was time for the Warriors. We had found this Aussie bar last night. We arrived just as they were opening and the game just kicking off. The first half was very good. They scored some nice tries but let one easy try in just before half time. The end result was sadly not what I wanted with the warriors losing the game in the last minute. Same old warriors different days. After the game Lisa had ...
... Of course as the confident sight-seers that we were we took the first entrance that we could find and were immediately very underwhelmed by what we saw. Sure there were a few ruins here and there but we didn’t see anything resembling massive market place buildings and city offices that we should have. Then it dawned on us that we may have taken a wrong turn (ok, I may have lead us through the wrong gate) and then once we found the correct entrance we were ...
4x4 day!! Hired us some sweet 50cc motor bikes for island exploration. After having instructions on - red roads yes, yellow roads ok white roads no - we Headed to a beach on the far side of the island. About 10mins in - bikes were struggling big time, almost decided to take the back and exchange until we realised the road ran out... Turned to dirt and only then we figured this was one of those white road no go zones - whips! Back on track we made it ...
