Make a holiday villa in Thira your home away from home

There are few places in the world that can set the imagination alight the way Thira, along Greece’s Aegean Sea coastline, does. It is a place blessed with incredible geological features thanks to the volcanic activities of the recent past. This island is actually a remnant of a caldera formed by a serious volcanic eruption. Thira, also known as Santorini, is also a place rich in history, dotted as it is with significant monuments. And as they explore the touristic treasures of this locale, visitors can look forward to spending time in cosy holiday villas and apartments in Thira. Most of these structures are situated atop a cliff and offer splendid views over the Aegean Sea. Visitors who occupy holiday homes in Thira will be close to pristine beaches where they can enjoy excellent sunshine. Private pools and Internet access are some of the facilities they will have.

Things to do

-Beaches: There are a number of great beaches including the popular Red Beach which sits amid towering red cliffs. Apart from the breathtaking views seen from here, visitors can swim in crystal clear waters. Getting there calls for an exerting hike but those who make it there always say that it is worth the trouble. Another side benefit of a visit to this beach is its proximity to the site of ancient ruins called Akrotiri.

-Nightlife: For those night owls who won’t want to turn into their Thira holiday homes too early, there are many joints where they can shake a leg while enjoying good company and their favourite drink. In Kamari is the tourist favourite Groove Bar. Most of the patrons who’ve spent time there laud the quality of service offered by the hosts, the warmth of the people and the variety of drinks. Also in Kamari is the Love Boat Bar where patrons can get hot shots of sambuca.

-Museums: The Museum of the Prehistoric Thira is where most of the artefacts dug up from the Akrotiri site are stored. A visit here reveals beautiful wall paintings dating back thousands of years from the late Neolithic period. The museum’s central location in Thira town makes it easy for those staying in holiday homes in Thira to visit. It only costs 5 Euros, a small fee for the wealth of information one gleans.

-Shopping: Thira, or Fira, as some refer to this part of Cyclades, has a number of retail outlets where holidaymakers can get anything from fine art to jewellery to books. In the Aegean Designs studio visitors can get their hands on some exquisite works by local artists as well as get a few art lessons themselves. At Babalu Art & Jewels holidaymakers will be able to browse through unique collections of bronze pieces.

-Food and drink: For a taste of Greek and Mediterranean cuisine, tourists will want to plan for a meal at the Koukoumavlos Restaurant. The owner is a chef renowned for the innovative dishes he outs together. Holidaymakers could also try Ouzeri for more traditional Greek meals. It is conveniently located in the town centre, making it a convenient stopover for residents of Thira holiday rentals not in the mood to cook.

It's in a great location, within easy reach of the centre but very quiet. The house is beautiful and has everything you could need. It is spotlessly clean and attended to daily. Foti and Ian were really helpful during our stay. I would highly recommend a visit.

The place looks just as good as it does in the photos and the view is even more breath-taking in person. Most importantly, the service is superb, as good or better than any hotel -- attentive, but in no way overbearing. Vana and Mary arranged our transfer from the airport (and back on the day of our departure) and even had someone to help us with our bags. On the evening of our arrival, Vana greeted us with a lovely welcome drink and gave us lots of helpful tips about restaurants, attractions, etc. The fridge was stocked with orange juice, bread, cold cuts, cheese and fruit, so we were able to prepare our own breakfast the next morning without having to find a grocery store that evening. The location is perfect -- just a few minutes walk from restaurants and cafes, but an oasis of peace after a busy day of sight-seeing. The plunge pool was a real treat! Serenity Suites offers great value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone wanting to spend a relaxing holiday in Santorini! Thanks again to Mary and Vana!!

(The house was beautiful but a bit difficult to climb up to reach the entrance.) The price was a bit high for the length of time we were there). There is a 15-minute walk (no car access) from the site of the main transportation to the house. They're wonderful with help from porters for the luggage.
