I stayed 5 days with my grown up daughters in a nice 2 bedrum appartment with a little veranda with a view of the village and the sea. The village of Foinikia is beautiful and peaceful, abount 15 minutes walking distance from Oia. It has not Oia's stunning views to the caldera, but it is very quite and to me it remiended Santorini many years ago.
The appartment was clean and nice, Sofia very helpful with tips for restaurants and beaches and there was always some breakfast even if you were a late sleeper. This is not a place if you do not want to walk at all (you have to leave your car in the parking area, there are no cars in the village), but it is sertainly a place to enjoy greek hospitality, in very special atmosfere and at a very good rate.
