Firostefani, Santorini

GROTTO VILLAS - Cat. B ' - In Firostefani with Caldera view

This complex of 15 houses first operated some 20 years ago, when some authentic cave houses (7 in total) were bought by their current owner, Mr. Jiannis, a Swiss who fell in love with the island and the people. Since then another 8 houses have been built in the traditional style, and now all of them overlook the splendid Caldera. He has lovingly named them after people (e.g. Mary, George e.t.a.). There are 3 types of rooms: studios (2 people) or one bedroom apartments with separate bedroom (2-4 people) and two bedroom apartments with two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one with bathtub and one with shower) for 2-6 people. Each house has a private bathroom with bathtub/W.C., ample sitting room, fully equipped kitchen cooking rings, utensils, refrigerator and oven (not in all), direct-dial phone, self-regulated A/C (warm and cold), satellite TV, and a big private terrace or balcony with volcano and sea view. The furnishing is comfortable but funny as it mingles different styles. Cleaning and change of towels are daily, change of sheets every second day. General hotel facilities include: a reception that operates from 8:00AM till midnight, a small swimming pool with umbrellas and sun beds, a pool bar, safe deposit boxes and a room where people arriving early or leaving late can leave their luggage and get some rest or have a shower, before checking in/out. Fax facilities and e-mail service are available. Breakfast is basic continental. The complex cannot be accessed by car, and several steps need to be climbed, but it is not a difficult nor a long walk from the town’s centre.
