SPITI STELIOS TRADITIONAL RESTORED HOUSE (4-6 PERSONS)

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 roof terrace, ideal for sitting 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 as many as 7 different islands in the distance.

Inside, the living room features two traditional Santorini couches, scattered with cushions and an alcove which serves as a snug (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.

Beaches

There are at least 2 beaches (Kamari and Vlychada) both are within a 15 min drive from Pyrgos. In addition, Perissa and Perivolos beach are also within a 15-20 min drive from Pyrgos. While public transport is available from the village square, renting a car is strongly recommended.

On the other side of the island there are several beaches most notably Vourvoulos, Baxedes, Pori and Cape Columbo. 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.

STUNNING LOCATION AND FANTASTIC VILLA

  • 5 of 5
WOW is the first thing that comes to mind! The villa has been beautifully fitted out with all mod cons and is light, airy, cool and very comfortable. The views from the rooftop terrace are some of the best on the island. It's a great place to sit of an evening with a glass of wine and watch the fantastic sunsets. Pyrgos is a traditional and pretty Greek village with taverna's, shops and a great bakery to wander down to in the morning.

The location is central and an ideal base for exploring the whole island.

Thank you Stelios and Caroline - we'll be back!!

LIEBE CAROLINE, LIEBER STELIOS !

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren nun bereits zum zweiten Mal in diesem Jahr bei Euch in Spiti Stelios.

Es war wie "nach Hause kommen", ihr habt uns erneut sehr herzlich empfangen und Euch große Mühe gegeben, unsere Zeit in Eurem wunderschönen Haus wieder zu einem besonderen Urlaubserlebnis zu machen.

Wir haben die Insel in diesem Urlaub ganz neu entdeckt, viel unternommen und erlebt.Es war jedesmal wieder schön zu Spiti Stelios zurückzukehren und am Abend, in Eurer vollfunktionalen Küche zu kochen, den herrlichen Ausblick auf die Caldera zu genießen und die traumhaften Sonnenuntergänge von der Dachterrasse zu beobachten oder einfach nur ein Gläschen Wein auf dem schönen Patio zu genießen.

Ihr versteht es einfach, Euren Gästen einen angenehmen Aufenthalt zu gestalten, indem Ihr alles gut organisiert und durchdenkt, jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite steht und das alles ganz unaufdringlich!

Ein großes Lob an Euch als Gastgeber!!!

Also, an alle die neugierig geworden sind: hinfahren und selbst erleben!!! Hier stimmt alles, was beschrieben wird, die Fotos ermöglichen einen tollen, realen Einblick, in das, was einen vor Ort erwartet! Und die wirklich netten Vermieter runden die ganze Sache ab!

Wir kommen wieder. Schließlich hat Stelios noch ein Bierchen gut bei uns :o)

Herzliche Grüße aus Hamburg nach Pyrgos
Karola und Jörg

EXCELLENT HOLIDAY IN A BEAUTIFUL HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Spiti Stelios very much. Pyrgos is a very beautiful small traditional village and an ideal location to explore the island (our tips: Akrotiri and Oia!). The house Spiti Stelios is spacious, very convenient and provides all the comfort one needs for a good holiday. We thank Stelios and Caroline because they were excellent hosts and were extremely helpful in making our stay unforgetable.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very pleasant week in Spiti Stelios house in Pyrgos. The house has been restored with great care and the authentic character was respected. The friendly owners maintain the house very well since they stay there itself occasionally. The interior offers every comfort. From the roof terrace we enjoyed a magnificent view over the island.

WE WILL DO IT AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
What shall we say ?
We loved this place so much that we already booked again for September.

The owners are more than friendly. They keep everything super-clean and exellently maintained. The house keeps all the pomises that the pictures and the discription make.

The best thing is the fully functional kitchen which we intensely used and the patio, where you may have the sun all day long.

We didn't want to write a review about this place, to be honest, because we would like to keep this perfect place a secret. So don't tell anybody ;o).
