Our group of 6 -- 4 adults and 2 teenagers -- rented the entire villa for 5 nights in early July. Situated on the caldera side of the island, there are three...

thank you so much for your amazing review, we would love to see you sometime soon again in Ilivatos. Many thanks for choosing our holiday house for your vacation.

Our party of 8 - 4 adults, 4 children aged 8 - 15 - stayed at Iliavatos House for 6 days in July 2016. While the house can be split into three units and accommodate 12, we chose to rent the entire home. It was fabulous! There are no better views than those from the three (!) balconies/patios!

Just off the main walkway with easy access to shopping and restaurants, but still quiet and serene. We had the entire place which made it so that in the morning...

Oia is a cosmopolitan resort in Santorini.

It is widely known for its dream-like sunset. Every dawn people gather in caldera to see that magic moment where the sun disappears in the endless Aegean open sea which takes the reddish colors of the day as it goes by.
