My Taxi driver (who was the owner of Ltoa Studios nephew, left me in a car park in the traditional village of Finikia - I was thinking what have I got myself into? Shortly Natasa came to greet me in the hot midday sun & we treked (not too far) along the village path to Lotza. If you are looking for 5 star forget it- the rooms are caves & very traditional, although comfortable & with all the mod cons- A/C Wi Fi, modern bathroom, flat screen TV& comfortable (although very high) beds. It was the best nigh't sleep I had had since arriving in Greece. It is a short (15 minute walk - up hill) to Oia, but with all the tourist buses & overpriced cafes & restaurants who really wants to spend a lot of time there? There are two lovely tavernas in Finikia,& not so overpriced. Amazing to watch donkeys going up & down the narrow paths carting guests suitcases & hotel essentials. A lovely breakfast basket was included in the price. I was ill one day & Natasa couldn't have been more attentive. If you want a taste of village life this hotel is for you. A big thumbs up to Natasa & Natalie for making my time there memorable.
