We had a wonderful 3 days at Villa Ilias. Room was very confortable and clean. People at the front desk (George and Mary) are very nice, and useful for anything you could need. The pool is great, with an amazing 'postal card' view of Santorini. Breakfast is very good, and free. I highly recommend!

Villa Ilias was the perfect place to stay in Santorini. Everything was wonderful including the rooms, views, pool, and especially the breakfast! George and his staff were very helpful and accommodating! I would highly recommend Villa Ilias to everyone!

Villa Ilias offers an spectacular view, beautiful rooms, pool area, lobby, and a lovely breakfast patio (don't skip the breakfast it is delicious!) The location is perfect- close enough to walk to Fira for dinner/night life, then retreat to the peace and solitude of Firostefani (Thought not that secluded- still plenty of good places to eat and drink). It is also right next to the bus stop to Oia which comes every 15 minutes. The staff are so friendly and accommodating. It was such a pleasure to stay here!

Everything about our stay was wonderful! George and Mary were excellent hosts, we were picked up from the airport even at a late hour and dropped off to the hotel. The views of the caldera are beautiful, the pool is nice, and the breakfast is delicious. Can't beat Villa Ilias for a stay in Santorini!

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ilias. Still on the main walkway of Fira-Firostefani, only 15-20 min walk down to main part of Fira, but somewhat out of all the craziness. Great views and Mary at the front desk was very helpful with everything and super nice. Would recommend to my friends and family.

Villa Ilias is a very peaceful place to stay in the perfect location. George and Mary make you feel right at home the second you arrive! The rooms are very clean, beds comfortable, the views from the pool are stunning - but the best part is the warm hospitality. Definitely the best hospitality we experienced while traveling abroad.

George and Mary were awesome! George arranged shuttles for us to and from the airport. Mary was working when we first got there and she was so sweet. They surprised us with some champagne and cake because we were celebrating our honeymoon. They were always there to answer any questions we had. The place was really clean and exactly as stated in the description. The view is amazing. I would definitely stay there again.

Having been born and raised on the island of Santorini, I have a true passion for its beauty and like nothing more than to share it with others. With a background in hospitality – my parents ran a bed and breakfast – running a holiday rental was a natural life choice for me. After all, it encompasses two of my favourite things; meeting new people and sharing my love for Santorini.

Aside from Greek (my mother tongue), I am also fluent in both English and French. The former learned whist studying abroad in the United States and the United Kingdom. The latter as a result of my love of French culture. A passionate traveller, I have had the pleasure of visiting many places around the world including North and South America, Europe and Asia. Learning about new cultures is another enjoyable bonus to run a bed and breakfast which attracts many visitors from across the globe … my language skills come in handy here too!

I very much look forward to welcoming you to Santorini and offering you the chance to create some wonderful memories with your loved ones.
