This was my first visit to Santorini and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. Recommended by a travel agency in Athens, Ikastikies offers an incredible view of the volcanic caldera. But what makes this place special is the warm hospitality of the owner, Georgios. From the pick up at the airport to the breakfast he serves in your suite, he shows his passion for hospitality and his commitment to his guests.
We stayed in the Spilia suite, which featured two bedrooms, a living area, kitchen, private balcony, and even a private pool! Although we visited during the off season in December, the view from the suite was still breathtaking. I would strongly recommend Ikastikies to anyone visiting the beautiful island of Santorini.

... apparently you can't get a taxi from the port. Everyone gets bus transfers. I was not impressed. All I wanted to do was get to our hotel and the only way we could was stop off at everyone elses hotel on the way. We got shoved on a bus with too many people which meant we didn't get a seat. The journey was long and windy to the top of the cliffs with many stops as the roads were so congested. The bus went from Fira, to Imerovigli to Oia. Every time the bus stopped at ...
... it was so chaotic as people departed and entered the ferries. Ours eventually arrived and we boarded. Although I'd had a cold for the last two day's, I had mostly felt fine. This afternoon, however, I suddenly felt exhausted. I got on the ferry and slept the whole three hours! Adam read his book and enjoyed a beer. It was a bit of a shame that there was no outdoor area. We had organised a transfer from the port to our accommodation, which worked out well with me being sick. ...
... white cave houses dotting the edge. Next was the indoor heated cave pool, massage room, steam room all with gentle music playing and the scent of oils surrounding. We were grinning ear to ear.
Next was our suite. It was filled with fresh flowers, the whole bathroom scattered with orchids. The smell -Devine. Then we were brought champagne and a plate of treats.
Next was 3pm Greek iced coffee and little cheesecake treats. ...
... room so we tend to have to use the public areas to update etc - but we are enjoying a Baileys on ice while doing so. For the record one of the waiters advised us that today was the hottest day they have had this summer being 40 degrees though he seemed to be guessing - it's 10:23 in the evening and 27degrees. As you can imagine when we are not in air conditioning we generally sweat and I've given up fighting with my hair with swimming and sweating, so the curl has taken over. ...
We have just spent five weeks travelling in Italy. As I recuperate on Santorini I am able to reflect on the last five weeks. Without pretending I am an expert on travel I feel I can pass on a few tips based on my experience and the fact that I have lived in Australia for over 60 years! (I believe I know what any 'new to travelling' Aussie would find helpful) Tip #1: ...
