4 of us stayed in one of their 2 bedroom 1 bath villas and loved it! Our stay was also made a lot better because of how much help they provided in reservations, storage for ours bags between checkout and departure time, etc...The owners arranged transportation for us from the port and back. They made reservations to one of the...

From the very beginning the owners made our arrival very special. Mr Rose showed us all available facilities, best restaurants and after went with us to the studio room and showed everything inside. We loved the room! it was the basic one, but even the standard room is great. It has real authentic walls paint, very cozy furniture and a...

Excellent orientation upon arrival. Upgraded to a suite for no extra charge. This was the perfect location in Oia; we had a view of the town and the entire caldera, yet our room and terrace was very private. We found the sunrises to be more spectacular than the sunsets while we were there. Fully stocked kitchen. Recently renovated. Very clean....

Nothing beats jet lag like a cave-quiet bedroom and excellent air-conditioning. And in case you are wide awake at 4:00 a.m. like I was, it’s nice to watch the sunrise over the caldera with a cup of tea and a purring kitty in your lap. And I'm not even a "cat person". Prior to this comforting sunrise experience, we had...

When I started planning our Santorini vacation late 2015, I researched a lot of hotels, villas and apartments. Then I decided to stay in Oia, as our home base while touring the island of Santorini. My wife has knee problems and may not be able to climb up and down a long, long stairway... I found Chelidonia Villas and talked...

This place is fabulous and we would always choose it again. Worth every euro cent :-) spectacular view, authentic Greek cave houses with antique furniture. Yet luminous and a beautiful terrace with caldera view, all some private stairs away from the tourist masses strolling through the city , quiet and peaceful.

We had seen photos of the beautiful while cave houses hugging the cliffs of Oia but actually spending a week living in one of them was a truly wonderful experience. Each has its own private enterance and patio area overlooking the caldera - spectacular views. Our studio had a little kitchen, sitting room, bedroom and bathroom. Beautifully maintained and very...

Great experience. The villa is right in the middle of Santorini on a hillside looking over the Aegean. Cute, well appointed, It came with everything we needed for our short stay, AC; internet, great bathroom, very clean, real coffee, cream, fresh fruit and even a chilled bottle of local white wing in the refrigerator. The guys never let us cary...

We definitely believe we had the best spot on the island. The view was just unreal morning and night, even the day we left we couldn't quite believe it was really there. Erika had been really supportive and helpful to me for months prior to our visit, answering all my emails and questions which made us look forward to our...

I can't speak highly enough about our time at Chelidonia Villas. My fiance and I arrived in July 2016 for four nights and had an absolutely stunning view in lovely accommodations, only topped by the friendliness and warmth of the innkeepers. I almost don't know where to start. But if you are looking for the ultimate Santorini, experience, well this...
