The Village Firostefani: The village Firostefani
is a small, quiete and picturesque place, about 800 metres north of Fira.
It has informal taverns, stylish restaurants with international cuisine, cafés and mini-markets.
But if guests want to have a bit more variety, Fira, the main town of the island, is only 10 minutes walk (about 800 metres). Here you will find everything: larger supermarkets, restaurants, cafes (including internet cafes), boutiques, jewelery shops, museums, and also fitness studios.
Fira has a very intensive nightlife with discos and elegant bars which are open almost the whole night (until the sunrise). Some of these continue to be open in the winterseason, especially at weekends.

Love and Santorini kept me here.
I am living some time here and some time in Germany
Brigtta Roussou purchased this house in 1988
Briga Villas are more private and not so much for profit.
The quieteness of the little village FIROSTEFANI, the breathtaking view and the marvellos sunsets
This is a MUST to be on your bucket list! Stay here and experience the true beauty of Santorini. We stayed with Briga for six evenings! Spectacular views! No need to go to Oia for the sunset, easy access to great restaurants. Far enough away from Fira that you get few tourists from the cruise lines. Local restaurants include Simone's and "Why Not Gyro?" - (grab a gyro and a bottle of wine and then walk three minutes back to the Villa to watch the sunset!!! The entire place is well maintained and simply immaculate!! We stayed in the house, fully stocked kitchen that we never needed to use, large living space, the outside dining glass room is amazing, the bedroom is spacious. Briga herself is a wonderful good hearted woman. She was responsive, welcoming and extremely helpful. We are a couple from the US in our 50's and were made to feel welcomed as special guests and family members. We are quite meticulous and simply could not find a fault with Briga Villas, Fiorstefani and Briga. This is my first ever review, we can't say more than.......This is a MUST stay!!!
Wow, wow, wow. We stayed in Studio 2 and adored the location with its private terrace and caldera views. Perfectly situated with a lovely, local feel and several good restaurants close by yet only a leisurely 20 minute walk along the clifftop to Fira for more extensive shopping and dining options. Studio 2 is perfect for solo travellers and loved-up couples. The compact kitchen allows you to prepare simple meals although we did supply our own tea and coffee. If you have a lot of luggage or a heavy suitcase you might want to arrange for a porter to assist you reach the Studio. Brigitta was very easy to deal with in the lead up to our arrival and checked in on us by telephone twice. Our time on Santorini was very special and I look forward to our return visit. Thank you Brigitta!!
From the start of the booking process all the way through the entire stay everything was perfect. Briga was so kind and helpful in getting things set including a taxi to and from the airport. We stayed in the house and it was delightful. Fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for great vacation. We absolutely loved the location as it was far enough away from things to be quiet yet close enough to walk to restaurants, coffee, market, etc. The views from the terrace are stunning and we found ourselves spending many hours just sitting there taking in the views while enjoying a glass of wine ad/or a snack. We ate breakfast (which we prepared in the kitchen) on the terrace every morning. We opened the glass doors of the house and rested on the sofas still able to take in the lovely view. Briga was great and checked on us a few times throughout the trip but was never excessive or intrusive about it. House was very clean and very well taken care of. Location is great as you are within walking distance of Fira and can take the bus to either end of island very easily as the bus stop is a short walk away as well. Please know the walk includes steps, but as long as there are no health issues it is quite accessible. I highly recommend Briga Villas! Wonderful experience from start of booking process through the cab ride back to airport. Briga is great and very easy to work with! Thank you Briga!
Mi marido y yo nos alojamos una semana en Briga Villas para disfrutar de unas merecidas vacaciones y, de paso, celebrar nuestro primer aniversario! ;-) Aprovechamos el tiempo al máximo en Santorini y tuvimos una maravillosa estancia que jamás olvidaremos.
Brigitta es una mujer valiente, con gran iniciativa, muy activa, amable, atenta y de mente abierta, lo que la convierte en una gran persona y una gran anfitriona!
Compartimos estupendos ratos de tertulia a la luz de las velas, saboreando un buen vino y en un escenario incomparable.
Muchas gracias Brigitta por una estancia tan agradable, esperamos vernos pronto, seguir compartiendo buenos ratos y exprimiendo cada segundo de este regalo que es la vida!!

Hoch über der Caldera haben wir 2 wunderschöne Wochen verbracht.
Die Wohnung „Briga Haus“ war mit allem ausgestattet, was man im Urlaub braucht. Sie ist trotz der vielen Touristenscharen, die täglich von den Kreuzfahrtschiffen kamen, ruhig gelegen und bietet eine wunderschöne Aussicht aufs Meer, nicht zu vergessen die einzigartigen Farbenspiele während der Sonnenuntergänge.
Die Gastgeberin hat uns aus dem fernen Deutschland unterstützt, wo sie nur konnte und uns bei unseren Problemen mit der Fluggesellschaft (Koffer weg) mit Rat und Tat geholfen, recht herzlichen Dank noch mal dafür.
Die Wohnung ist auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen, wenn man in Santorini Urlaub machen möchte.
Vielen Dank auch an James, der für die kleinen Probleme immer ein offenes Ohr hatte und geholfen hatte, wo er nur konnte.

Ich war bereits 5 Mal auf Santorini und ich kann sagen, dass ich hier die beste Aussicht auf die Caldera geniessen durfte. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man benötigt und man hat ausreichend Platz. Der Ort selbst ist beschaulich und nicht so überlaufen wie der Hauptort Fira. Kurzum, ein gelungener Urlaub. Vielen Dank auch an die nette Gastgeberin Brigitta.
The Island Santorini
is one of the most southern island of the Cyclades and is famous as the jewel of Greece.
Its typical and wellknown Cycladic architecture with white cubic houses, built in the cliffs high over the Caldera, the countless white chapels with their blue cupolars, give a marked contrast to the lava rocks.
Guests will find breathtaking views over the waters of the caldera (crater) to the volcano and other islands, which are enhanced further by the magical sunsets.
Firostefani is a quiet small picturesque place with informal taverns, stylish restaurants with international cuisine, cafés and minimarkets. It is 10 minutes walk from the main town Fira, where guests will find everything, also a very intensive nightlife.
