Never been to Santorini before so wasn't sure what to expect. We read previous reviews and took a chance. What a wonderful place to stay. The house was very comfortable all amenities and 3 double bedrooms. You definitely need a car if you want to see the whole island and it is well worth driving around. Absolutely beautiful location would recommend to anyone. Sarah was so helpful too, couldn't do enough for us. Be happy to stay there again.
