Nomikos Villas Caldera Hotel,Firostefani greece
A tiny, unpretentious property offering picture postcard views from its cliff side location, with quaint dining options close by. The pool area is minute and some terraces are shared but this is a charming property with a huge welcome.
Suited to couples for a romantic getaway, although not those with mobility problems or a fear of heights.
Built in typical Santorini style over 3 levels staggered down the cliff, in beige roughcast concrete with white trim. Balconies are wooden fronted and of differing sizes. Standard rooms share the terrace around the pool whilst some superior rooms have a Jacuzzi.
Property type: Aparthotel
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
A compact wooden reception is built into the mountain with standing room only. There is no restaurant, breakfast is served on your balcony.
Compact in size with limited greenery apart from some pot plants and flowering urns. The pool with metal stepped entry is more of a plunge pool and has a hot tub adjacent along with a few sunbeds, thatched parasols and some tables and chairs from the cosy pool bar. Steep steps up give access to rooms.
Area Type: Set on the rim of the cliff face, surrounded by similar styled properties, overlooking the caldera in the centre of Firostefani. A choice of tavernas and a few local shops are a few minutes walk away, along with the car parking area. A wider choice of restaurants and bars are in the capital Fira which can be reached by local bus or a 15 minute walk along the cliff path.
