Basic but clean. Definately traditional and is a small property in a typical island village.
Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday in Santorini.
We are used to what I would call hard travel and this property and its location are what you would expect of budget accommodation with basic amenities. If you are not used to catering with limited resources, it might not be for you. The journey from the Airport to the property is simple and local buses are perfectly adequate. However, now that we are in the autumn of our life we found the walk from the nearest drop off point to the property a struggle, it is definitely not for the feint hearted! Whilst we were there, there was a problem for the entire stay with the free Wi-Fi, which had apparently been damaged by building works. Our host was very apologetic about this however. There are plenty facilities within easy access eg. Chemist, Doctor, Supermarkets etc. There are also plenty of eateries and we would highly recommend 'Mike' which is a Restaurant/Grill House in the centre of Messaria. All in all we enjoyed our stay.
Dear Norman, thank you for your honest and thorough review. We have taken into consideration all your comments and we thank you for helping us improve our offer for our future guests. You may be happy to hear that the wi-fi services have been restored. We were very glad to welcome you and look forward to seing you again.All the best, Christos.
Internally the accommodation was spacious and pleasant enough although externally the small courtyard was rather claustrophobic and lacked privacy as it is shared. The immediate area is a pleasant traditional village with many churches. Walkways being the only access.
The adjacent modern town of Mesaria has some friendly eateries (Mikes might not be an idyllic location but the food is good and reasonably priced) and small shops. It is a bus ride to any tourist location: Fira, Oia, the beaches etc.
I would recommend the Caldera walk from Fira to Oia (11 kms) and the boat excursion from Fira to the Vulcano, hot springs Thirasia, Oia and back to Fira
