Overview

Thira (Fira) House Rental Photos and Description

1 House (60 sq.m., sleeps 3-4) & 1 Studio (45 sq.m., sleeps 2-3)

We would like to welcome you to our beautiful island of Santorini, to experience the hospitality and the friendliness of the local people and our old traditions which are only known in our island.

Our family owns two old houses in the old, traditional area of Fira, which is the capital of Santorini. We have recently renovated them and we did our best to ensure that they would keep their character and unique style: high ceiling roofs and white washed walls, made of thick stone, to keep the rooms cool during the summer and warm during the winter. As the old inhabitants didn't have access to wood as a building material, they used to 'carve' their houses and their furniture into stone hills or caves.

It's a perfect place for couples,families, elder people, and everyone who will appreciate one of the most beautiful and quiet areas of the island, while being just a breath away from the main square and the magnificent caldera view.

Calderimi studio is 45 sq.m. and can accommodate 2-3 people.

It has 1 bedroom with 1 queen size bed, 1 dining-living room with a large sofa which can be used as an extra bed, 1 fully equipped kitchen and 1 bathroom.

Calderimi house is 60 sq.m. and can accommodate 2,3 or 4 people.

It consists of 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other one with one single bed. The second room can host one more person. The kitchen, big and comfortable with a dining area, is fully equipped and has all modern facilities. The bathroom is made according to the local traditional style and painted in a yellow ochre.

Each of them has also a private terrace with table and chairs, decorated with flowers and plants.

Why Vivi and Andreas chose Thira (Fira)

This property was passed down through three generations and was fully renovated, but keeping faith with the essential elements of the original structure.

What makes this house unique

Aegean's blue and white colors, are being reflected on our island's sunlight, which calms both the mind and the soul.

This is what you are going to experience when you come and stay at our traditional houses, which were renovated with extra care, as we didn't want it to loose it's traditional elements.

Also you have the chance to sit in it's sunny yard and enjoy your coffee, your wine or your ouzo, which we will offer to you, in order to make you feel welcome!

Wonderful little gem

  • 5 of 5

I had the privilege of staying at this traditional style home. I can not express how wonderful, kind and helpful the family is.

I left a valuable item on the plane from Athens and they jumped through many hoops to have it found and delivered to my door and they would not take a penny for the extra effort :D

In addition to truly honest staff, this house is in an excellent location to town and the busses. It is clean and comfortable. With the kitchen, you can save on the otherwise expensive eating in Santorini.

I highly recommend this to anyone!!

Owner is very friendly and helpful

  • 5 of 5

The location is great! It is an easy walk to the Fira bus station, a bakery, and downtown. We enjoyed tremendously the marmalades the Owner made. The decor indoors is quite homey.

A lovely greek house

  • 3 of 5

Vivi was so kind to meet us at the Port and transport us to her adorable house. We stayed in the smaller of the two, and it was comfortable for the 3 of us. There was bread, fruit, and home-made jam to greet us which was so nice. The house is located in a good area, and we recommend renting an ATV to get around and explore the island! Everything was clean and accurate regarding the description. However, there was lots of street noise at night which made it difficult to sleep. The wifi also was very weak and often did not work.
