Two friends and I had a wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable stay at Chelidonia villas! Simply put - the views are breathtaking! We stayed in a two bedroom suite with 2 king size beds, a living room, a nice sized bathroom, and a kitchen, all of which was immaculately kept. Chelidonia is located in the heart of Oia and despite the...

My boyfriend and two other friends stayed at Chelidonia Villas for 5 days in early June, to celebrate 40th birthdays. We shared a two bedroom accommodation. The owners Rose and Erika, as well as the staff are charming and friendly. The unit and property was spotless and cleaned every day. You can't ask for a better location in Oia!

First of all, Santorini is probably the most picturesque island I've ever been too. For a photographer, it is a dream come true. It does, however, get very busy when the tour boats come in and the beaches are mediocre at best. We stayed 4 nights... 3 would have been fine. Chelidonia is a beautiful property and the units are...

This was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been...Chelidonia Villas are amazing and the owners, Rose and Erika were so wonderful! I would definitely encourage you stay in a villa that has a private terrace with views of the Caldera, it was almost unreal to walk out each morning to the view! They made everything so easy...

My wife and I spent 4 nights here in early September and throughly enjoyed every minute. We stayed in the small studio villa which was perfect for the two of us. We spent much time on the patio area enjoying the 160 degree view of the Caldera. Beautiful and very relaxing. The hosts were very helpful and friendly. They had...

I can't imagine having a better conclusion to our two week vacation in Greece than our three day stay at the Chelidonia! Everything was perfect from our arrival to our reluctant checkout. Based on obsessive research we made a very good decision (for us) to stay in Oia. Oia is at one end of Santorini-- Fira being more-or-less in the...

From the moment we checked in, everything was great. We stayed in a 2 bedroom house. Comfortable, clean, and well furnished. We had a large front terrace with an amazing view facing the Caldera, volcano, and surrounding islands. Owners are hospitable, gave good advice regarding local restaurants, beaches, etc. They live on premises and are available. Worth every Euro...

We booked a Chelidonia 'suite' apartment for a week in July and had a great time. The apartment location was perfect, a stones throw from the many shops, cafe's and restaurants of Oia but hidden away in the cliffside down some steps making it a peaceful haven when desired. The apartment was a good size with a large double bedroom,...
