Santorini Web : Hotel Information
Santorini Web has attempted to simplify as much as possible the process of choosing a holiday home. Santorini offers all types of accommodation : hotels, villas, apartments, cave houses, studios and rooms.

The cardinal rule is deciding what kind of holiday you wish to have & then combine that with your budget.

The Caldera
When looking at our map remember that the west coast of the island is CALDERA SIDE. That means you are right above the volcano - the cliff side which has a massive drop into the sea.

So any area on this side and located on the cliff is called caldera. It could be caldera in Oia (Ia), caldera in Firostefani, Imerovigli, Akrotiri, Megalochori at certain points or in the main town of Fira. Caldera accommodation (volcano view) is structured in tiers (levels) and many are smallish units due to building difficulties, building permissions and the islands' desire to preserve its original look and charm.

Most offer swimming pools. The lower properties can only be reached by a considerable amount of steps. Properties on Caldera side are usually more expensive due to the spectacular view offered.

Beach Accommodation
In contrast with the highest region of the island (CALDERA - west coast) the EAST coast slopes gradually into the sea

Main villages that cover this area are Perissa, Perivolos, parts of Megalochori, Kamari, Karterados, Monolithos, Vourvoulos, Baxedes, Pori, Agios Artemios and Vlichada (south east). Vlichada has a small marina used to moor private yachts and boats.

Akrotiri on the south west coast of the island is a combination of Caldera (Volcano views) and large stretches of beach.

Village (inland) Accommodation

There are many traditional inland villages which offer views either to the Caldera side or the Beach side.

Pyrgos is situated on one of the highest points of Santorini island and has amazing views of all the whole island. Messaria and Vothonas are traditional villages situated below Pyrgos.

Megalochori village and Emporio lie relatively close to the beach areas of Perissa and Perivolos.
