Briga Villas

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Briga Villas for our honey moon from June 26-July 3. Upon arrival, we were astonished by the location of the villa. We knew the views were great from the pictures, but the pictures did not do it justice!! Within hours of arriving at the villas, the owner (Brigetta) gave us a call on the house phone to make sure everything was alright and ask about our travels. We were also greeted with a bottle of Santorini wine to help us get our honeymoon started. It was so yummy!

Our week at Briga Villas was wonderful. The location of the house was perfect. The word "Firostefani" means the “crown of Fira” and it is due to the touristic development of Fira which has pushed the boundaries of the capital. That being said, the city of Firostefani was less crowded but had plenty of nice restaurants, markets, and tour guides in walking distance from our house. This was perfect for us. We would wake up, and walk to get breakfast at a local restaurant. Then, we would use the resources of Firostefani to plan day excursions around the island. Fira (the capital) is also walking distance from the villa. Almost every night, we would walk to Fira and visit the market and grab a bite to eat. The night life in Fira is FUN!

The Villa was so cute! Gave us a feel for a tradition greek cave house. The views were unbelievable, the venue was private, and we always felt safe. The locals were also accommodating and friendly. We became friends with quite a few locals, and they were happy to help us as needed.

If you are coming from America, please keep in mind that you will need a universal adapter to charge any of your devices. We had never been to Europe, so we did not come prepared with the correct charging equipment.

Your Holiday of a Lifetime Starts HERE!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a MUST to be on your bucket list! Stay here and experience the true beauty of Santorini. We stayed with Briga for six evenings! Spectacular views! No need to go to Oia for the sunset, easy access to great restaurants. Far enough away from Fira that you get few tourists from the cruise lines. Local restaurants include Simone's and "Why Not Gyro?" - (grab a gyro and a bottle of wine and then walk three minutes back to the Villa to watch the sunset!!! The entire place is well maintained and simply immaculate!! We stayed in the house, fully stocked kitchen that we never needed to use, large living space, the outside dining glass room is amazing, the bedroom is spacious. Briga herself is a wonderful good hearted woman. She was responsive, welcoming and extremely helpful. We are a couple from the US in our 50's and were made to feel welcomed as special guests and family members. We are quite meticulous and simply could not find a fault with Briga Villas, Fiorstefani and Briga. This is my first ever review, we can't say more than.......This is a MUST stay!!!

Santorini Sweetie!!!

  • 4 of 5

Wow, wow, wow. We stayed in Studio 2 and adored the location with its private terrace and caldera views. Perfectly situated with a lovely, local feel and several good restaurants close by yet only a leisurely 20 minute walk along the clifftop to Fira for more extensive shopping and dining options. Studio 2 is perfect for solo travellers and loved-up couples. The compact kitchen allows you to prepare simple meals although we did supply our own tea and coffee. If you have a lot of luggage or a heavy suitcase you might want to arrange for a porter to assist you reach the Studio. Brigitta was very easy to deal with in the lead up to our arrival and checked in on us by telephone twice. Our time on Santorini was very special and I look forward to our return visit. Thank you Brigitta!!

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

From the start of the booking process all the way through the entire stay everything was perfect. Briga was so kind and helpful in getting things set including a taxi to and from the airport. We stayed in the house and it was delightful. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for great vacation. We absolutely loved the location as it was far enough away from things to be quiet yet close enough to walk to restaurants, coffee, market, etc. The views from the terrace are stunning and we found ourselves spending many hours just sitting there taking in the views while enjoying a glass of wine ad/or a snack. We ate breakfast (which we prepared in the kitchen) on the terrace every morning. We opened the glass doors of the house and rested on the sofas still able to take in the lovely view. Briga was great and checked on us a few times throughout the trip but was never excessive or intrusive about it. House was very clean and very well taken care of. Location is great as you are within walking distance of Fira and can take the bus to either end of island very easily as the bus stop is a short walk away as well. Please know the walk includes steps, but as long as there are no health issues it is quite accessible. I highly recommend Briga Villas! Wonderful experience from start of booking process through the cab ride back to airport. Briga is great and very easy to work with! Thank you Briga!

Inolvidable. Repetiremos!!! :-))

  • 5 of 5

Mi marido y yo nos alojamos una semana en Briga Villas para disfrutar de unas merecidas vacaciones y, de paso, celebrar nuestro primer aniversario! ;-) Aprovechamos el tiempo al máximo en Santorini y tuvimos una maravillosa estancia que jamás olvidaremos.

Brigitta es una mujer valiente, con gran iniciativa, muy activa, amable, atenta y de mente abierta, lo que la convierte en una gran persona y una gran anfitriona!

Compartimos estupendos ratos de tertulia a la luz de las velas, saboreando un buen vino y en un escenario incomparable.

Muchas gracias Brigitta por una estancia tan agradable, esperamos vernos pronto, seguir compartiendo buenos ratos y exprimiendo cada segundo de este regalo que es la vida!!

Best place to stay in Santorini!!!

  • 5 of 5

Best place to stay in Santorini!!! We stayed one week at Brigitta’s gorgeous cave house and had the best time! Brigitta is a wonderful owner and hostess- she is very quick to respond to e-mails (even though it’s a 10 hour time difference for us), she welcomed us into her home when we arrived, and we enjoyed chatting with her daily throughout our stay. The house is exactly as pictured on the website- a traditional cave house that is gorgeous inside and out. And the view from the balcony – WOW!!! The balcony is the perfect place to relax for the day, or in the evening with a bottle of wine to enjoy the sunset : ) The location of the house in Firostefani is perfect too- a very close walk to lots of great restaurants, but not too close to the busy, relatively touristy area of Fira near the old port. (It’s about a 5- 10 minute walk from the old port). This is the perfect place for a couple to spend a holiday relaxing and exploring Santorini. We loved our stay at Brigitta’s home, and would definitely stay here again if we return to Santorini! Thanks for a wonderful stay Brigitta!!! : )

The Island Santorini

is the most southern island of the Cyclades and is famous as the jewel of Greece.

Its typical and wellknown Cycladic architecture with white cubic houses, built in the cliffs high over the Caldera, the countless white chapels with their blue cupolars, give a marked contrast to the lava rocks.

Guests will find breathtaking views over the waters of the Caldera (crater) to the volcano and other islands, which are enhanced further by the magical sunsets.

Firostefani is a quiet small picturesque place with informal taverns, stylish restaurants with international cuisine, cafés and minimarkets. It is 10 minutes walk from the main town Fira, where guests will find everything, also a very intensive nightlife.

Other Activities: Fitness, swimming, diving, sight seeing, etc.
