Booked this on Booking.com and paid under half the published rate! Quiet village with amazing views of the island and sunsets. It does not disappoint! We stayed for 1 week. I love how you are taken care of from when you land to when you leave. We paid for the transfer porter from airport to/from the airport and it was... More

We enjoyed our stay and it was trouble free. The staff are very helpful and there is the use of a pool 2 mins walk. The view of the Caldera is second to none and the sunsets from the balcony were absolutely breathtaking. 15 min easy walk meandering through the hotels and restaurants to Fira and actually we enjoyed being...

Me and my wife stayed with them for our honeymoon in June 2001 and absolutely loved it. Very hospital and charming staff and the location is great. Right on top of the cliffs over the opening scene of Tomb Raider :)

Arc Houses is great. We stayed 3 nights in the studio with balcony. The view from our private balcony was amazing. There's also a "rooftop" terrace that's available to all guests, which is also fantastic (and we seemed to have to ourselves most of the time). You can order in breakfast or go to a nearby cafe. We bought our... More

Had 3 nights here, just sat on the balcony and drank in the view, room was nicely decorated and plenty big enough for the two of us. The staff organised a transfer for us and there was a porter waiting to carry our luggage, although it was hardly much of a climb. Couple of nice restaurants nearby, but really it's... More

Second time round staying at Imerovigli but first at Arc Houses. This place lived up to our expectations. It had the most amazing outlook, nothing blocking the view, good size bedrooms and living areas. Very quiet as it was tucked away but yet you could access the local restaurants, bars and supermarkets quite easy. Best to get a transfer to... More
