Accomodations Abound

There are many places to stay in Oia, I arrived on Santorini/Oia without any lodging, and ended up at the first place I stopped, and was lured to other places along my way. I was not, however, very pleased with this lodge. So here are my recommendations. Oia offers very high end lodging, probably requiring booking in advance, and Oia offers some poor accommodation. Be prepared to shop around, and know what you want. Don't just settle and agree, check to make sure the water in the shower is hot. Check to make sure lights work and etc. The place I ended up staying at, I believe called Marco's House, was a old big house that a Greek couple lived in and rented out the extra rooms. The shower only had cold water and smelled a little foul The bed was old and uncomfortable and the room offered very little furniture or other comforts. It was also poorly secured, good thing Oia is safe. So to make a short story long, investigate before agreeing. I believe I paid 30$ a night for this room, you could easily barter for cheaper stay

interesting about oia is all the cats and dogs...the dogs are everywhere in the streets sleeping during the day in front of the shops and the cats adopt you for the stay!

the buses are fantastic and cheap can get everywhere in about 1/2 hour clean cool and huge
not being a smoker and also from CA, seemed like there was always the smoke factor and car exaust smells...maybe i am a bit sensitive....

Perivolas Traditional Houses: Santorini's traditional accommodation

Voted by Conde Nast magazine as one to the top hotels in the world, Perivolas is extraordinary. Here's an excerpt that I've taken from its website :

Faithful to the tradition of Santorini's unique architecture, a group of 300 year- old caves that were once the homes, wineries and stables of indigenous fishermen and farmers were restored. With the help of native craftsmen and using volcanic raw material, this historical setting has been transformed into an A´ Class complex of 17 private houses, reviving an age-old neighborhood called Perivolas.

The complex is set within an amphitheatrical landscape of curves stepping down to a central stone terrace with a pool that flows over the edge of the cliff into an Aegean horizon. Next to the pool, an old winery is reborn as an indoor cafe and a poolside bar.

Please visit my travelogue for more pictures. Would definitely recommend Perivolas for those who wants a taste of traditional Santorini homes and romance.

Breathtaking panorama from your cave house
Its infinity pool
Unique huge cave houses with vaulted ceilings, domed bathrooms and loungers outside by the pool
Excellent personalised and intimate service by staff
Yummy buffet breakfast
