What a view! This “cave” room has an amazing view and location. And the outdoor, “private”, porches offer a great way to relax and enjoy the scenery. With all that said, based on our experience, if service and comfortable amenities are what you want, I would recommend looking elsewhere. The beds were very uncomfortable, the wardrobe was so musty smelling...

The Chelidonia Villas was the highlight of our European vacation. I traveled with my two young adult children and one of their friends. We stayed in two villas - one a little bigger than the other. They were in close proximity to each other so we were able to walk back and forth and visit with ease. Erica and Rose...

Myself and my friend stayed for two nights in Chelidonia villas, it was heavenly! The apartment was lovely and clean, nicely decorated, perfectly situated and had a fantastic view from the terrace. There wasn't a room available for us for on our third night in Oia but the owner went out of his way to try and find us a...

We spent a week in Oia this summer as a part of our honeymoon in the Greek Islands. The Chelidonia Villas were amazing. We had a private apartment with two private patios overlooking the caldera. Mr. Rose, the owner, was fantastic. He told us about the best restaurants in the area, beaches and the supermarket and bakery. We absolutely loved...

We spent 5 nights (3 consecutive nights to start our trip, and 2 more at the end) at the Chelidonia Villas on our first trip to Santorini and it was amazing. The family that runs Chelidonia gave us great advice about the island that we greatly appreciated. The property itself is in excellent condition. We stayed at 2 other highly...

We have just got back from the most incredible honeymoon staying at Chelidonia villas. We cannot complement Rose and Erica enough as hosts and their incredible villas. Our villa was perfectly situated for an incredible view of the caldera with an enormous terrace for our sole use. The villa itself was large and well air conditioned with a bedroom, kitchen,...

Chelidonia Villas is an absolute paradise. The incredible room, location and view from the terrace/balcony were key to making this one of the best vacations we have ever experienced. Words cannot begin to describe the amazing caldera/sea view from our huge terrace. If you are looking for a truly Greek Island experience, then this is the place to stay. We...

THIS is the place to stay! We had to book at least six months in advance and well worth it! Our "traditional cave home" was fantastic- bright, airy, spacious, comfortable and spotless. If you wish to truly experience Oia while still staying connected to the shops and restaurants, this is the place.The views are everything one could imagine and literally...

We just got back from our all too short trip to Greece and our stay at the Chelidonia Villas was nothing short of spectacular. While the breathtaking views are one of the primary selling points for this property, the privacy and comfort of the Chelidonia Villas is nothing short of spectacular...truly the ideal choice when basing your Santorini visit in...
