Suggestions for accomodation in Santorini for 2 nights June 29-30, 2011

Jump to last reply

I am a mother travelling to Santorini for 2 nights on a flight from Athens with 2 teenage children. I don't think I have the confidence to hire a car and drive around. I am coming all the way from Melbourne, Australia.

I am undecided on where i should be staying - Fira, Firostefani, Imerovigi or Oia ?

I can spend upto AU$300-$350 a night (Euro 225-263) and want a really nice hotel / villa with a fabulous caldera view to accomodate three people. Since I am spending only two days I don't think I will be spending a lot of time in the hotel - however it would be nice to start and end the day in a really special place. If there is any cheaper and nice clean accomodation I would be happy to hear about it.

I like to be able to walk or take a bus or a taxi to see the red / black beaches and just generally enjoy the restaurants, shops, galleries and views of the island. Would love to see the sunset as well from the hotel or a good spot.

What places can you suggest and where is the best place ? Do I book these on the internet or is it best to ring ?

How far is the airport from Oia ? Most forums suggest that Oia is the best place to stay. Is this advisable in my situation ?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
