Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with my family (Mom, Dad and sister) at Joanna's place and had a wonderful time! For those who haven't stayed on the Caldera, it's important to note that certain locations require more or less effort to reach, and this location was one of the more accessible ones. Joanna was very helpful throughout our stay, and very accessible as well. She was responsive on email and well prepared for our visit with welcome materials.

When I come back to Fira, I will seek out this property again - it's in an excellent location and extremely well-managed.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more impressed by the hospitality offered to us by our host Joanna. We arrived much later than planned and yet she was able to provide efficient transportation and information to make us feel welcome. The location of the villa, 5 minutes from the cable car, was absolutely perfect, allowing us the opportunity to have access to what the entire island has to offer. We would absolutely recommend and encourage a visit to Villa Dakoronia. Thank you so much Joanna.

Magnificent!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough superlatives to describe our stay at Villa Dakoronia. The property sits in the perfect location on the caldera overlooking the cruise ships. The view is breathtaking from the lower and upper balconies.

It is a close 5 minute walk along the caldera to town for shopping, food & beverages and night life, yet far enough away that it is the most peaceful place on earth. The view at night is equally as spectacular with the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen.

The entrance to the apartment is on the main level which includes a kitchen with everything you will need (and even a full size refrigerator) a very comfortable living room with a fold down couch, a nice dining area and the first of two double bedrooms.

Up the set of stairs you will see in the photos, is the master bedroom. It has its own balcony with a stunning view. It is private and secluded. A nice place to end the evening.

There is a full washroom including stand-up shower on each level which is very convenient.

Outside is where you will spend all of your time, there is a beautiful private pool which lights up with different colours at night. There is also a great entertaining space and lounge chairs to enjoy the sunshine.

The entire place is immaculate inside and out. Who could ask for anything more! Countless tourists stopped to ask about it while we were there. It is that magnificent.

I almost forgot, ask your host about a tour of the Island. This also shouldn't be missed - we lived like a local for the day. It was fabulous!

And last but certainly not least, Memos and Joanna are simply the most kind and gracious hosts we have ever met. The property was overwhelmingly special but it is our time spent with them that we will cherish for a lifetime. They made our 25th wedding anniversary complete in so many ways. Thank you for everything.

Stunning Caldera views, personal touches and location, location. location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed 3 nights while on our honeymoon at Villa Dakoronia. The views are simply breath-taking and the property is in the perfect location. The middle of the Caldera, blocks from the cable car and a few minutes walk into the heart of Fira. Joanna's personal touches from picking us up at the airport, to home-made juice and sweets when we arrived were so welcoming. She provides great information about how to best spend your time on the island too!

High quality place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my best friend in May 2016 for 4 nights. Wow! Every photo shown here is exactly what you get! Joanna was a wonderful hostess, picking us up/taking us to the airport, helping with our luggage (note we only had carry on luggage and I'm glad given the hill we had to take), giving us pointers on where things are located or sites to see. It was the perfect ending to our first visit to Greece. Absolutely fantastic place to stay. I would stay here again!!

amazing villa, stunning views, hosts fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here when we got married. We needed space so all the hotels didn't offer this unless you want to pay outrageous prices. We were met at the airport (even tho we had a hire car arranged) by Memos - husband and wife run the villa- to show us where to go. The wife - Joanna- met us where we dropped off and insisted on carrying all our luggage! The villa has a private Jacuzzi/pool with spectacular views and plenty of seating.upstairs there is ample space with two bathrooms, kitchen and a massive roof terrace seating lots of people overlooking the caldera.Joanna and Memos couldn't do enough too help- cooking cake, cleaning frequently and helping my 'new' wife with her dress on the wedding day to the car.at the end of our stay they came with us to drop our car off and took us to the ferry port. We don't normally leave reviews but I can honestly say if you are hesitating whether to book here you will be far from disappointed! It's spectacular and easily accessible within 5 mins to the numerous restaurants and bars fira has to offer.book it! Forgot to mention the wedding present they kindly got us - such friendly helpful kind people!

Firá is the capital of Santorini. It is a traditional settlement. Fira is a city of white-washed houses built on the edge of the 400 m high caldera on the western edge of the semi-circular island of Santorini. The two main museums of interest are the Santorini Archeological Museum,( 300 m east of Villa Dakoronia), and the Museum of Prehistoric Thera at the southeast corner of the White Orthodox Cathedral .

Access to Fira is mainly by roads on its eastern side, climbing from its port via the Z-shaped footpath on foot or on donkeys, or by riding the steep cable car from its lower terminal by the port. The central square of Fira is called Plateia Theotokopoulou, with a bus and taxi station, banks and pharmacies.

The narrow paths, lined with all kinds of souvenir shops, jewelry shops, and restaurants linking the upper cable car terminal and the central square, are packed with tourists during the summer seasons.

The view from Fira is magnificent, with a nice panoramic view of the 18 km long caldera from southern Cape Akrotiri to northern Cape Ag. Nikolaos, plus the volcanic island Nea Kameni at the center with Thirassia Island in the distant west on blueAegean water. Big cruise ships can usually be seen anchoring in the small harbor between Nea Kameni and Fira.
