Overview

Pyrgos House Rental Photos and Description

Traditional Restored House, Sleeps up to 6

Situated in the 'trendy' mediaeval hilltop village of Pyrgos. Spiti Stelios originally served as an old artisan house and winery dating back to the early 18th century. This traditional building with beautiful caldera and island views, has been restored and converted into a simple and friendly family holiday home. Teams of local artisans have used traditional crafts, techniques and materials to create this comfortable Santorini 4 bedroom dwelling.

Approached via a footpath which has breathtaking views across the island and the Aegean beyond, the entrance to the property is into a large cobblestoned courtyard with outdoor dining area and barbecue. There is also a spacious roof terrace, ideal for relaxing with a glass of local wine and enjoying the spectacular sunsets (which are almost guaranteed on this island). On a clear day it is possible to make out more than 7 different islands in the distance including Ios, Sikinos, Folegandros, Milos, Amorgos, Naxos, Irakleia, etc.

Inside, the living room features two traditional Santorini couches, scattered with cushions and an alcove which serves as a snug (this used to be a tread for the white grapes). The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances. Adjacent to the kitchen is one of the single bedrooms. An arched passage leads to the other 2 bedrooms and bathroom with its 'loo with a view'. The master bedroom is light and airy, with caldera views and double doors opening onto a second enclosed courtyard. Adjacent to the master bedroom is the other single bedroom. In total there are one master bedroom and two single bedrooms on this level.

In addition there is a cool double bedroom downstairs with en-suite wet room. This benefits from having its own independent entrance from the second enclosed courtyard (which also has an outdoor shower). This double en-suite 'yposkafo' is carved out of the rock in typical Santorinian style and served as the workshop where cheese and other artisan products were made in years gone by.

The beautiful white-washed village of Pyrgos is one of the prettiest places on the island, built around the remains of the mediaeval castle, in a charming mixture of winding lanes and churches with distinctive blue domes. Pyrgos is centrally located with access to multiple beaches and places of interest.

Beaches

There are at least 2 beaches (Kamari and Vlychada) which are a 15 min drive from Pyrgos. In addition, there are Perissa and Perivolos beach within a 20 min drive from Pyrgos. While public transport is available from the village square it can get very busy in the summer months and is unreliable, therefore renting a car is strongly recommended.

On the other [East] side of the island there are several beaches, most notably Vourvoulos, Baxedes, Pori and Cape Columbo all worth exploring. Cape Columbo is somewhat secluded and a perfect location if you are looking for peace and quiet. It is reputed to 'sit' on a series of mini volcanic craters deep under the sea bed and the far end of this beach is a naturist/nudist beach.

Walks

You can walk along the cliffs from Fira to Oia, about 11 km. Start out in the morning when it's cool and be sure to take along plenty of water, a snack, sun cream, sunglasses and a hat!

There is a hiking trail between Perissa Beach and Kamari Beach that passes by the archaeological site of Ancient Thira at the summit of the mountain. The Perissa side is a dirt trail. The Kamari side is a paved road with steep switchbacks. Not counting the time you spend exploring Ancient Thira, the hike will take you about 2 hours.

There is also a trail which starts at Vothonas village, winds up through Pyrgos and continues on to Profitis Ilias (some 567 meters above sea level). From there, the trail continues to Ancient Thira and then on to Perissa. This trail provides spectacular views of the island, and will take 2 – 2.5 hours plus the time you spend at Ancient Thira.

In addition, there is a hiking trail between Pyrgos and Mesa Gonia that passes through Mesa Gonia village. The trail is a bit dusty but most of the walk is very nice. The Mesa Gonia end of the trail really gives a different view of the island, taking you back in time 50 years or more perhaps.

Perfectly restored Pyrgos Gem

  • 5 of 5
Our week in Spiti Stelios was perfect in every way. The house is sensitively restored and well equipped. Spectacular views - day and night - made the inside-outside living a bonus. Easy access to to restaurants, mini markets and transport pick-up points made this the perfect base from which to explore the rest of Santorini.

Booking procedures worked well. Hosting by Regina was well done and she was available to answer all questions and assist where necessary.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
What an amazing property, beautifully restored and so full of character, it was such a pleasure to stay in it. Loved the views & the roof top terrace the best as well as the little enclosed courtyard where we ate all our meals. House is of a very high standard and very comfortable, short walk to parking with lovely views along the way and parking was always available.

Stunning location, peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Spiti Stelios was everything we imagined a vacation on Santorini could be. The house was spacious, comfortable, artistically beautiful, very clean and up-to-date, with awesome views from the rooftop terrace and abundant natural light and fresh breezes from the windows and doors. We loved the private, peaceful location in a the quiet town of Pyrgos, which was also centrally located on the island, making all the attractions of the island within easy reach. The owner was wonderfully welcoming and helpful in providing information and orienting us to the island. There was an adventure to be had each day, whether discovering a beach and enjoying sun and water, wandering through a small village, or standing awed over the rim of the caldera. Setting, accommodation, hospitality, activities, food....all surpassed our hopes and expectations!

Maison authentique et chaleureuse

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons vraiment profité de notre séjour à Spiti Stelios et nous avons apprécié la maison, sa rénovation qui lui garde son authenticité, son caractère chaleureux, la possibilité de cuisiner et de faire des BBQ, sa terrasse d'où on admire chaque jour le coucher du soleil !
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par une amie de la propriétaire qui connait bien l'île et nous a donné des conseils pertinents.
Le village de Pyrgos est vraiment beau, typique et original et il reste calme le soir car il n'est pas envahi de touristes !
La première montée vers la maison avec les bagages en pleine chaleur a été un peu difficile juste après le voyage mais nous avons vite pris l'habitude de ce petit parcours à pied pour rejoindre la voiture.
Nous avions une liste d'activités et de restaurants à notre disposition et nous avons fait le tour des plages pour trouver celle que nous préférions.
Nous recommandons ce séjour et cette maison à tous ceux qui cherchent une maison bien placée sur l'île et dans un beau village traditionnel et calme.
