If you want to stay on the cliffs in a cave house dwelling look in Oia maybe at Esperas or Perivolas. If you are into the beach try the Veggera it's in Perissia right on the black sand beach. It takes about 10 or 15 minutes by motorbike to get to Fira from Perissia. Both places are great depends on what you are looking for.

I stayed in the Esperas Villas in Oia for my honeymoon and would highly recommend them again. Big rooms (we had a two story) and amazing views. People were very nice as well.

Thank you for your replys! Is Estera Studios the same as Espera Villas? We definetly want to stay on the cliffs. What do you think is a better location, Fira or Oia?<BR><BR>Your suggestions are much appreciated!<BR><BR>Chris

I don't think that those are the same. I'm not sure the website, but I know Esperas Villas has a site. I thought Oia was definitely better to stay in. It was more beautiful and quiet. All the tourists on the island come to Oia at sunset anyway to do the view. Fira, in my opionion, was much crazier and touristy. We would just get a taxi to take us out at night to Fira. There is fun nightlife there, but it was also fun to leave it when we wanted to. We drove during the day, but at night we just always taxied. It was pretty cheap. In Oia, there are some really nice restaurants - the Esperas Villas can recommend, but you'll want reservations sometimes because everyone takes l-o-n-g dinners watching the view. <BR><BR>A great travel agent for Greek honeymooners is Carmen at - we went to Athens, Hydra, Myknonos, and Santorini for two weeks.
