I booked for 4 days at this apartment. However, the lady host asked me to shift to another apartment for my last night as she has a big group of guest checking and they doesn't want to be separate. Although I have agreed to help her out but it's doesn't make me feel comfortable, esp when Im a solo traveller....

This queit little gem lies just a 15 min walk from the Oia city center. You have to walk uphill but that something that you have to get used to anyway if you visit Oia. We stayed in the 2 level apartment which was really cosy. The rooms are clean and the breakfast is exactly enough.

Excellent cave rooms with a different style from the other hotel. A calm situation in Oia,Finikia. Excellent view to the sea. Breakfast in your room and wifi very good.

We decided to spend the rest of our stay close to Oia in the north of Santorini. To be exact the place is called Finikia. When we arrived we were greeted by Sofia who is quite friendly. However, we found the transfer from Kamari to Oia rather expensive. We paid €45! More expensive than a taxi as when we left...

Sophia has done an amazing job decorating this beautiful cave house. A ten minute walk into Oia..the hotel is really located in Fanikia but worth the walk. Only a pool could have enhanced the place. ..gorgeous. do not book through air bnb and save a few hundred. Stephano was the booking agent who lives in turkey..failed to set transportation from...

A stunning room in a thoughtful and tasteful development, deep in the heart of a traditional old settlement. Top class room, well designed with a lovely breakfast. A little piece of heaven to escape from the town of Oia. There is always something new to catch your eye and the layout of the rooms with all the levels is breath-taking....

I booked to stay here for 3 nights at the end of my stay in Santorini in June. We had stayed in Akrotiri previously in a fantastic hotel (modern) and wanted to experience something different, so we booked Heliophos. I had seen a few negative reviews on here about getting to the hotel etc, and in all honesty if you...

I had a lovely stay here. It's a beautiful location and the room I stayed in was a nicely renovated cave house. A breakfast hamper with freshly baked Greek biscuits was provided daily which was a nice touch. Only downside was it was quite a way from Oia, I didn't realise it was so far. The hotel is actually quite...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Traditional SANTORINI vacation away from masses. Just 1.5 kms from the famous Oia, with the indescribable view of the largest volcanic caldera in the world, the small village of Foinikia, inhabited mostly by locals, remains in ancient times, before the tourist rush. The villagers with their donkeys, farm laborers and women who talk to their white houses, form a unique atmosphere. Studios Heliophos, in the heart of the village, has been renovated with great respect for rural life, and offers holiday really very quiet, apart from the crowds of tourists, but not far from the commercial and tourist center of Oia or surrounding sandy beaches at 3 kms (Note that inside the volcanic caldera of Santorini no beaches, which are only found around the island). Location: The village Foinikia is 1.5 km from OIA and caldera of Santorini, 15 km from the airport. At 100 meters there is free parking, local bus stop agency and rental cars and motorbikes. Rooms: Each studio decorated with taste, has its own veranda with view, Satellite TV, CD player and radio and are air - conditioned. Wi-Fi Internet.
