We booked Aethrio for a good central location and it delivered on that front.
We were aware that the hotel was not on the caldera edge with sunset views and were quite unsure if we should spend lot more for a sunset view from the hotel or room. We decided to save the money and spend or on nice lavish dinners instead.
You get the views from anywhere in oia. We did not mind coming back to the room and not seeing the view from there as well. Watching the sunset with other people was a lot of fun. The crowds actually applaud omnitel
the sun. Hs spectacularly set on the horizon. It's the only time I have seen people applauding GOD.
Breakfast was god event, hotel was lean nice ppool, helpful staff. I would recommend.

... winds to get there so made me wonder what the path was like as well. It was beautiful in a windswept way. Do wonder where they get their water. Oh, a side note on the water. Santorini has a de-salination plant where they convert salt water to the water that comes through the faucets. We then filtered it through our filter but it still had a bit of a taste but we were not willing to keep buying bottled water. Toward the end of the two ...
... town a few times but each time the sea of cruise-shippers threatened to carry us away into hell, so we returned with sun ripened peaches and lounged on our balcony, looking out to sea, or watching cats climbing from rooftop to balcony to church spire. It was quiet and idyllic, and I honestly didn't mind it. Oia grew on me on our last night. We ventured into town for dinner and ate at a very popular taverna - Michael had his octopus cooked in sweet wine sauce, and ...
... to get one for the next 11 months, and it didn't disappoint (I mean no skinny dog but a solid 8/10). As we were in mini Australia, and due to missing our local 'Suwan thai' (and let's be honest, Thai food is everywhere in Australia), we had a red thai curry at one of Ios' many Thai restaurants. We hit a few bars in Ios but the party scene was pretty mild due to it being pre-high-season, so we were not too dusty the next day to walk around the island, visiting many of ...
... There were only 2 cruise ships in the harbor today but we were told that at the height last summer there were 17 ships with 45,000 guests all wanting to take the bus to the sunset in Oia (1000 buses). Apparently the traffic jam didn't end till 2:00 am. Today we will explore Oia without the crowds of summer - the beauty of October ...
... over the entire island is from the Monastery. It is only accessible by car. Good thing I was driving, the narrow single lane road up the mountain was a bit hair raising. Mountain wall on one side, sheer cliff on the other. The view was amazing and worth it! For dinner that night we found a small Grill near the hotel which is off the tourist path. The meal was great and the woman and daughter working allowed us ...
