Lovely villa, exclusive feel & stunning views!
Posted Jun 10, 2015 on Hotels
Our vacation at Villa Fabrica was perfect! The villa is gorgeous: exclusive touch, beautiful, neat style, peaceful, no unpleasant surprises. Hays furniture, Korres cosmetics - high quality over all. Service was also excellent and very helpful.
It takes max 5 minutes to walk up to the villa from the parking slot, with regular health condition it's not a challenge (not even when 5 months pregnant) and the staff helps with the luggage. The walk is quite steep though and there are many levels on the outdoor area of the villa, so I wouldn't recommended it for people with physical limitations nor small children.
The view from the villa's terrace is stunning, you can see almost the whole island and the sunset is amazing (I prefer to watch it at the villa's terrace over the crowded, over-touristic town of Oia).
The small village of Pyrgos, is cute and authentic. Try Selene (the fine dining side of the restaurant), Cava Alta and the small corner café Brosco under the trees in the small square. Don't try Señor Zorba. Wine tasting at Santo Wines is well concepted, but if you're really into wines, try also Hatzidakis (especially their mavrotragano was a highly positive surprise!). Santorini Brewing Company close to Kamari Beach produces great craft beer.
A must do is a catamaran cruise by Triantafillou (the staff will help to book it). You can swim in hot springs, see the incredible landscape of the island from the sea perspective and enjoy a delicious lunch.
