My wife and I spent last week in Villa Ilias. In our opinion it is in the best location to stay. George and his team bend over backwards to make sure your stay is perfect. Oh, and the breakfast is just brilliant. Santorini requires quite a lot of walking up and down stairs if the wrong location is chosen. Villa Ilias is at the top and right on the main lane way between Fira and Oia. There are at least 10 restaurants within a few minutes walk. We ate in a different one each night and they are all marvellous. We rented a quad bike for 2 days and can highly recommend this as a way of discovering the island. Top tip - if possible book room number 1. The balcony is your own viewing platform for the sunset.

Room tip: Double Volcano West Facing - Room 1

First off this was a beautiful place to stay, the views are to die for, and the pool and bar is just such an amazing place to relax. Breakfast was fantastic and we were able to have it on our balcony overlooking the caldera which was just so mesmerising.

On top of all this George and Mary were so helpful and always went the extra mile for us.

I could not recommend this place more!

My son and I were lucky enough to spend 3 days and 2 nights here. The location is just perfect with amazing views and walking distance to everything in the area.
We arranged for a 6:30 am pick for 21 euros. Great deal and easy. The office doesn’t open till 8, so we had a little nap in the covered breakfast area, till they opened. The breakfast was the best we had in Greece. Great variety, a special treat everyday. Fresh brewed coffee. Delicious!
The staff are just the best. Mary took great care of us. What a wonderful hostess. George was great as well and also Helen who took care of our room, bartender George who joined us for dinner one night, our driver, can’t recall his name and Mariana who made great meals.
Our room was small but had everything we need. Not luxurious but clean and efficient, safe fridge and WiFi. There is a small pool with killer views. We slept great.
We enjoyed the location immensely. There are plenty of fancier places around that are 2-4 times as much money. We truly felt we had the best service , the central location and price made for a perfect place to stay in Santorini.

My daughter and I had an amazing stay at Villa Ilias. The staff is so friendly and helpful, they truly make you feel comfortable and welcome and happy to help in whatever way they can. The daily breakfast was delicious and offered plenty of variety. While our room was not large, the views were incredible. The pool deck also provided fantastic views and the food and drinks at the pool bar prepared fresh to order, so delicious! Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

This is our 2nd visit to Villa Ilias, and we were just as happy as we were the first time. We had the same room (#4) with a small balcony, which was just perfect for enjoying a glass of wine and a side view of the caldera. The villa itself is great, but the service from the the staff is awesome. Everyone does everything they can to make you feel as you are the most important guest they have. George is fantastic, as well as Mary and the other staff. The breakfast is delicious and very plentiful. You will not regret staying here. It is awesome.
