Santorini island is well serviced by both air and sea. There are many flights daily from Athens to Santorini with Aegean, Ryan air, Volotea and Olympic Airlines. There is also a multitude of international lines and charter flights from Europe, especially during the summer season.
The fastest boat to Santorini from Piraeus (the main port of Athens) is the High-Speed ferry which takes 4,5 hours. There are a number of other ferries that connect Santorini with Athens and the other islands.
Moving around Santorini with a rental car or motorbike is perfectly easy but it is of course busier in high season.
The Villa is situated in the "FINIKIA traditional settlement", which is a protected neighborhood of Oia. No cars are allowed inside Finikias narrow streets, and the village is peaceful and relaxing. Distance of the house from the bus station on the main road is 150 meters (walking), from the taverns of Finikia 200 meters, and from the centre of Oia 800 meters . Nearest sandy beach (Baxedes) is 1300 m downhill, therefore it is advised to go there by bus or rented vehicle. Finikia is a small village, attached to Oia as its neighbourhood. There were the wineries where the grapes from the wine field of Santorini, were processed to wine. Village is there since middle Ages. Most buildings were wineries with some accommodation for the workers. The economy of this small village was directly dependent from the wine. As there were not any wells in the area, fresh water was scarce and exclusively supplied by the rain, collected into the sizeable underground cisterns of the houses. In our days, very few houses maintain their cisterns in operation and fresh water is provided by the sea, via a local desalination plant.
In our days, Finikia is characterized as a Traditional Settlement and therefore the local architecture is somewhat protected. No cars or motor vehicles of any kind are allowed into the narrow alleys of the village. Finikia is a very silent and romantic place away from the afternoon tourist crowds raiding Oia due to its famous sunset. There you can enjoy your wine in peace while sun falls….
