We stayed here upon recommendations from my cousin Everything they said was correct. From our pick up at the airport to our final swim in the pool was perfect. The location of the hotel gives you a quiet place to relax yet a 10 min walk gets you into Fira and a bus ride or a rented ATV or car...

Villa Ilias will provide you the spectacular Santorini view you are looking for! And the location in Firostefani offers a far more relaxing experience than the highly touristed Fira or Oia. However if you want to visit those places you can jump on the bus to Oia right outside the lobby (€1.80 every 15 minutes) or take a scenic 15-20...

We stayed at Villa Ilias for a week in May 2017. We picked the East facing room as we were on a budget (it doesn't have the caldera view). The room itself was simple but still great! It was clean, serviced daily, has a fridge, a safe and air conditioning. The Villa also has a balcony that has its own...

Villa Ilias What a fantastic experience we had there. Few tips about Santorini at the end of this review. It is difficult to know where to book your hotel in Santorini when you start searching... Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigli, Oia... if you rent a vehicle (quad, car, scooter or else), which you should do anyway, just know that everything will be...

Staff: 10/10 Amazingly friendly and helpful. Started off with giving us a map and marked it up with a bunch of destinations. Ended up renting an ATV at a nearby shop so we could get around easier.

I booked for 13 family and friends (8 rooms) to stay at Villa Ilias and it was perfect. We had the most amazing views from our rooms, the breakfast buffet was delicious and the staff (George ,Mary and our barman Yanni) were wonderful to all of us. We were a short walking distance from the shops of Fira and as...

“Our east facing room window got foot traffic in the daytime but who stays in their room in Santorini! In the night time it was silent.”
