Villa DALI: 3-bedroom house for families/friends with unique view to the Volcano

Space 1,076 sq. ft.

Overview

About the property

Hosts 6-8 persons, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with Caldera exceptional view

Villa DALI is situated in an exclusive and quiet neighborhood along the traditional caldera path between Fira and Firostefani, overlooking the world famous Volcano and facing the spectacular Caldera view from the front yard, Fira sideways and the eastern part of Santorini and even the island of Anafi from the back yard. It is located in the most unspoiled part of the old town and perfect to enjoy and relax at the outdoor terrace and the front and back yard of the house.

Villa DALI (licenced by the Greek Organization of Tourism since April 2015) was renovated recently from an old Theran villa. This spacious house provides the unique occasion to live in a private property that combines comfort and privacy. The 100 sq m high-ceiling house consists of three bedrooms (the first two with queen size bed and the third one with double bed), two bathrooms with shower made out of off-white polished cement, a living/dining-room, a fully equipped kitchen with modern facilities and a hall. There is also a WC at the back yard.

Some antique furniture of the older house decorate the villa offering a different and classy touch. Contemporary aquarelle and oil paintings decorate the walls of all rooms of the villa. All three bedrooms are equipped with ecological mattresses and are ventilated with Westinghouse ceiling fans for ecological reasons. The inner temperature in all places of the property is comfortable. If heating is needed, the house has electric convectors. The comfortable living/dining room has two sofas, one of them can easily be opened in a double bed hosting two more persons.

With more than 150 sq m. outdoor front yard and back yard (plus the rooftop terrace) the villa offers the opportunity of outdoor living and outdoor dining (there are two built-in tables made out of off-white polished cement, one at the rooftop terrace and one at the back yard under the pergola). It has spacious outdoor areas, built-in benches around the walls, a big pergola at the back yard, a big 2.5 m parasol at the front yard. So one can easily lie and enjoy outdoors the whole day long, since the property provides a variety of outdoor possibilities for every time of day and night.

Villa DALI is perfectly suitable for families or a group of friends up to six persons plus two extra persons, if needed.

It is very important that there is an easy entrance to the Villa (the car reaches 10m from its entrance) with no endless footpaths, uphill and hard to navigate stairs to reach your accommodation. The Villa is located very close to Nomikos Conference Center, St. John Catholic Cathedral, St. Stylianos Church and the Cable Car entrance, while it is at a walking distance (5΄- 6΄) from the center of Fira (the capital of Santorini) and all the cafes, restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Santorini with a view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I went to Villa Dali and it was wonderful! The view was from the rooftop was amazing, you can see everything. and the sunrise in the morning is stunning. The house was well furnish and our pick and drop off were well coordinated. Maria and Stamos gave us great recommendations for places to eat and the place we so close to town! Easy access to Santorini nightlife. The house doesn't have AC, but it doesn't seem like many places in Santorini do. Once you open the windows the breeze is perfect!

Great Property, Great location and a memorable experience

  • 5 of 5

Vila DALI is an excellent place to stay!  The property has almost everything you will need to have a memorable vacation.  It is also extremely clean and well maintained. The daily housekeeping service provided by Nikoleta was very much appreciated - tip her well as she is a real delight to get to know!  The 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms are very well-sized and were perfect for our family of 5.  There is also a sofa bed so that our 3 boys did not have to share a room. The location and views provide an unforgettable backdrop to this gem of a property - it is higher above Fira so you can look over the town and also the Caldera.  At night, you will really appreciate the rooftop as a place to sit and watch the sunset and activities going on below you.  Some positive things to note: (1) The location is somewhat removed from the touristic bustle of Fira meaning you can easily walk into town and in 10 mins be back in your villa enjoying some respite from the crowds when a cruise ship is in town.  Fira is central to everything and where you can take buses to anywhere on the island. You can also walk in the opposite direction and be in Firostefani in 10 mins; (2) There is a road quite close to the villa so you will not have to drag your luggage up and down steep paths and stairways; and, (3) Maria and her business partner Stamos are extremely responsive, helpful and knowledgeable.  They will patiently answer questions and provided us with very useful information on the property and the island.  We took them up on several restaurant suggestions and were not disappointed.  There was a heatwave while we were there and Stamos and Maria made arrangements to help us get some laundry done.  Stamos also came by frequently to check that we needed anything but was not intrusive.  Stamos also helped us rent a boat for a very private and memorable sunset sail around the caldera.

Finally, please be aware that there is no conditioning in the villa. It can get very hot inside even with the windows open (or shuttered to block out the sun). We slept up on the roof one night to cool down. We also got into the habit of setting off early in the morning, coming back for an afternoon nap and then heading out again once it cooled down.

In summary, you will not be disappointed with Villa DALI - it may look expensive when compared to other properties but you are getting an excellent location, great property and many personal features that you will not experience elsewhere.

Beautiful sunset views and close to town!

  • 5 of 5

The Villa is exactly as advertised. It was clean and comfortable. The service from Maria and Stamos was excellent! The Villa is a close walk to town for delicious fresh food, drink and nightlife. The sunset from the roof is stunning. I would recommend staying here, we all loved it.

Amazing views, clean and updated villa, close to town

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect place to stay with my family of 7 people. The view could not have been better from the two sides of the villa. So many great places to sit outside and take in the spectacular views of the caldera and the volcanic island.

The architecture is beautiful and the place was recently updated. Its quiet and secluded but it's also just a short walk to the main part of Thira with great shopping and fun restaurants. Thira is the best place to stay because it's easy to get everywhere by bus from there. Just note that it's not a place for someone with any difficulty in mobility - lots of steps and uneven walkways.

There is no air conditioning which worried us at first but Santorini has nice breezes and with all the great Windows and fans, it was not a problem at all.

Having the cleaning service was nice every day (especially having someone empty the bathroom garbage cans because you can't flush toilet paper down in Santorini).

Beautiful place!!!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience during our stay in Villa Dali. The position is extremely nice (a medium size terrace on the front side of the house, facing the caldera, a very large one on the back, more reserved, perfect for dining).

The house is very close to the center of Fira (literally walking distance), still in a silent area on the upper side of the village.

The house has been completely renovated, in the structure (bathrooms, windows, kitchen) and in the furniture (most of the kitchen tools still had the plastic around). Kitchen is fully equipped (including a small dishwasher)

The house includes 3 large bedroom, plus a couch that can accommodate two extra people (recommended only for children, since it is located in a living room in front of the kitchen).

Yannis is a professional host, and provides whatever is needed for a pleasant stay, the housekeeping is accurate, fast and efficient

Definitely recommended
