Friendly place in fantastic location
Posted Sep 22, 2016
First of all, a mention about the hosts Nikolas and George (his son). Such nice friendly people, always willing to help and also bringing round free cake etc! The whole experience had a real personal touch. The room we had was the upstairs room. It was spacious and the bed was comfy. Having your own private balcony made it seem a better result for us than if we had one of the downstairs rooms. The only downside was the small shower with temperamental temperature and a shower curtain that sticks to you. But it was plenty powerful and a small price to pay given the great location and price. The location could not be better - it is almost perfectly half way along Perissa beach, so you can walk half a mile either direction and get different bars and restaurants. If you keep walking to the right, you come into Perivosa, another nice resort, so there is plenty of walking to do. The restaurants in Perissa are fabulous (apart from Volcano which is where they try to please the English too much). But the rest serve authentic Greek food with fresh fish platters etc. The bars are relaxed and not too rowdy. People dress up nice on an evening, which my wife in particular liked, as she could wear her long flowy dresses. We hired a car and had trips out to Oia (you have to visit!), Fira and Akintori. We also took the boat ride to Kamari. Overall we had an amazing 7 days in Santorini and staying at Ostria Apartments played a big role in our enjoyment. We will be back next year!
