CALDERIMI TRADITIONAL FAMILY HOUSES

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!

best place to stay in Fira !

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing stay in Fira thanks to Vivi, Andreas and their lovely house. The place is very well located, lovely, fonctional and clean, and with a nice sunny garden where we had all our breakfast ! Our little boy was very happy to play outside. Vivi welcomed us at the port, gave us a lot of information about the island and Fira. We were very happy to find a delicious cake, greek wine and sweet almonds at our arrival. We hope to come again, and we definitely recommand this place, which was one of our favorite during this two weeks in Greece ! Thanks Vivi and Andreas !

Amaaing!!

  • 5 of 5
Fantastic!! Met at the airport and when we arrived we couldnt believe how beautiful it all was. We stayed in the studio for 4 nights( sofa bed only if your young and fit) and 6 nights in the apartment. Both had their own character, if your staying 2 or more weeks go for the apartment as its larger and has a washing machine. For total romance the studio. All the beds were super comfortable and proper lace edged sheets ect. Bathrooms superb and everything you needed. Thira was beautiful and crazy! Met and made so many friends, especially Vivi who owns theses houses. Vivi you are awesome, i am looking to bring my boyfriend with me this year and we'll stay in the studio. Looking forward to staying here again and spending our nights in The 3 Brothers!

A wonderful place in Santorini - even in winter

  • 5 of 5
Even before arriving, our host, Vivi, helped us with some small details like car rental. Upon arrival, she picked us up from the airport and brought us to this nice studio apartment. The location was wonderful; it's right in the middle of Thira, with easy access to just about anywhere. Although there is no view from the apartment, it is a two minute walk to see the caldera and the rest of the town, very centrally located. It was just as nice as it looked in the pictures, if not nicer. The apartment is very clean and new, yet still feels somewhat old, like it's been there for a long time.

Vivi left us some small things to eat and took care of us well, and we could tell that she really paid attention to small details that would make our stay enjoyable. She was always available and willing to help in case we needed anything. Thanks to her we were able to use our time wisely and see pretty much all the big (and small) sites on the island.

Although we came in winter, we can tell that this would be a great spot for the summer, too. Although it is right in the center of the city, it is surrounded by local homes, so you would be somewhat separated from the tourist crowd, and yet only a few hundred meters from the town center and the rest of the hotels. The courtyard is really nice for eating outside and to soak up some sun. Overall a very nice place to stay.

As Vivi gave us a ride back to the airport, we realized we were thankful for such a gracious host and for a wonderful place to stay. We would give the apartment (and our host) the fullest recommendation.

7 out of 10

Yes, the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities.
Yes, the property clean and well-maintained.
The owner is a very nice lady, although since this is the first year in this business she wasn't very helpful on advices about restaurants/places to visit, etc.
She pick us up from the port and drop us off at the airport (this she did it as a favor).
Pros: The apartment is very very nice and spacious. Great kitchen size, lovely patio to have drinks/dinner al fresco. Great location.
Cons: The air condition is in room 1, so in order for the room 1 to get cold, the person sleeping in room 2 is freezing. Cable wasn't working, and we were not provided with toilet soap, soap for the washing machine, paper towels.
Watch out with the noisy scooters going fast down the alley the house is on.

I still Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative.
