Make a holiday villa in Firostefani your home away from home

Santorini is easily one of Greece’s preferred holiday destinations. It combines majestic geological formations with an incredibly beautiful coastline. This section of the Aegean coastline is dotted with sublime beaches from which holidaymakers can revel in the sublime weather. But it’s not just all about natural beauty; Santorini, or Thira, as it’s also known, also boasts many historical monuments that are sure to captivate not just the history buffs. Holiday homes in Firostefani are a great base from which to explore the Santorini and larger Cyclades area. This village between Imerovigli and Fira promises absolute tranquillity as well as incredible views, situated as it is on the cliffs of the island’s calderas. HomeAway has lined up a selection of holiday villas in Firostefani that will match the needs of most any kind of tourist.

Things to do

-Food and drink: One of the joys of spending time in Firostefani holiday rentals is that holidaymakers can get to try out traditional Greek cuisine in the variety of eateries that are found in Santorini. Instead of trying to put together a meal for themselves they can try out the Akropolis which is found on the road to Oia. The food is excellent and the prices amazingly affordable. A taste of authentic Hellenic cuisine can be had at Nikolas.

-Nightlife: Santorini has the perfect joint for different tastes; those who want to party it up with other tourists can head to the Two Brothers Bar. Holidaymakers who would like to party into the wee hours after other bars have closed should visit the Koo nightclub.

-Art: Lovers of art will find a number of galleries in Santorini to browse through. Among the more renowned art galleries here is the Mnemossyne Artists House in the town of Oia. This is a place where holidaymakers can buy not only paintings but also one-of-a-kind handmade jewellery pieces. Visitors will also get to admire and purchase the photographs of such acclaimed photographers as Andrea Motta. The contemporary, yet uniquely Greek styling of the gallery itself is captivating.

-Beaches: A day at Kamari Beach is enough to purge the stress and anxiety of city living and relax the mind totally. This stretch of Aegean Sea coastline is covered in fine black sand and a smattering of volcanic rock, another indicator of the recent volcanic activity in this area. Those staying in Firostefani holiday homes should make a point of going down there to enjoy the perfect sunshine tempered with delicious sea breezes. The fact that it doesn’t get too crowded means visitors will get a measure of seclusion.

-Museums: There are many museums in Santorini from which history buffs can ferret out information about the locale’s past inhabitants and significant historical events. A trip to the town of Fira will bring them to the Santozeum Museum which houses copies of the colourful frescoes that were dug up from the Akotiri site. The originals of these can be found at the Museum of Prehistoric Thira and trip to the well-preserved site from which they were dug will round off the experience nicely.

Weather in Firostefani

Like pretty much anywhere on the Cyclades archipelago, Firostefani experiences Mediterranean climate which means mostly warm weather throughout the year and mild winters. Most holidaymakers prefer to reserve holiday villas in Firostefani when the climate is at its hottest; between June and September. At this time of year temperatures average between 26 and 29°C and hardly a drop of rainfall is observed. After a brief autumn, temperatures descend into the teens where they remain throughout winter.

Travel to Firostefani

Visitors to these parts will more often than not jet in through the Santorini Airport which is a facility that is mostly busy during the peak holiday season in summer. After touching down in this airport visitors will be just 15 minutes from their Firostefani holiday homes. They can use a taxi for this trip or use the shuttle bus to get into Fira town. From Fira visitors can easily connect to Firostefani.

Perfect little place for a relaxing holiday

4 of 5
We had a peaceful and relaxing week in Studio 1 at Briga Villas. This is an excellent location, quiet but at the same time only a short walk from shops and restaurants in Firostefani. From the terrace (which is shared with the main house) you have an amazing view of the caldera and Santorini's sunsets. Thera is about 15 minutes walk away along the clifftop paths - which is just far enough to avoid the crowds in the centre. The studio is self contained and is partly a traditional cave dwelling. It's very well equipped and contains everything you need for a short stay. Brigitta the owner made us very welcome and even organised car hire for us. Highly recommended.

Beautiful artist designed property and some of the best views in the entire Mediterranean.

Briga Villas house is located in a very privileged position, in a quiet and secluded section of the "caldera" area of Firostefani that enjoys some of the finest views the island has to offer. It is also a short and spectacular 10-15 minute walk to the centre of Fira, the island's capital with the facilities, museums and other attractions it boasts. Brigitta herself was a charming hostess lovely company and was able to give us first class recommendations for taxis and eating out. I can honestly say that our familiy will never forget this beautiful holiday as long as we live.
