So much more than we expected! Our villa was an oasis nestled above the old world traditional Greek residential village of Melachiori in the center of the island of Santorini. The three bedrooms and full bathrooms, especially shower structures, were over-sized and very private within the structure of our one home. Three couples and more can easily share this villa. Bathrooms
are huge. Kitchen areas are adequate. The outside courtyard and pool area and other nooks and crannies are extensive. The housekeeper daily was necessary due to the Greek plumbing issues as well as general daily pick up. The villagers were so friendly and helpful as we visited their restaurants and stores daily. Lovely setting!
The location on the island of Santorini. By car, very accessible to the entire island. The village we stayed in was charming, its locals and their neighborhood which we meandered through in the mornings as we walked to the best bakery up the hill.
The abundance of cats that live and roam in the village and visit the villa daily.
Also, there were issues in the one bedroom bath area with bath water temperature.
We loved exploring all of the island. There are great beaches, tourist attractions, the restaurants, the historical sites, the views as we navigated around this windy volcanic island.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Nothing is within walking distance of the village. Driving is easy. Lots of signs and easily navigated. The islanders are very friendly and helpful. Getting lost was part of the adventure!
Tips or Restaurants:
The restaurants just below the villa are fabulous, fresh, fun with live music and conversation nightly. I would highly recommend the restaurants at the boating and fishing port.The seafood is fresh out of the water and reasonably priced.
Hire a driver to collect you upon arrival to the airport. Rent your car and follow the map. Getting lost is part of the adventure and then you become so familiar with the island you feel like a native.
Check In Out:
Jackie from the villa rental agency met us at the door upon arrival and departure from the villa. She made herself available throughout our stay if we needed her assistance in any way. Nothing to it!
