Lo que te va a encantar en esta casa
OK, first of all I want to be crystal clear on this: this humble little home is COZYYY, as in veryyy SMALL, around 50sqm with a private garden patio around the same size. The greatest thing for me is it does have TWO full baths, as the house was previously set up as 2 separate tourist studio rentals, so while it's most unusual for a house this tiny to have 2 baths, it's perfect for a couple who doesn't like to share, like us!! :-) The house is IDEAL for 1 single or 1 couple, however it can sleep 2 more (preferably short term guests) in the living room which has a super comfortable sleep sofa with trundle bed, so it's nice to have the second bath there for guests as well. More great stuff: the house is located in the heart of everythinggg and yet surprisingly quiet, in Fira town, the main capital of the island, close to public bus/taxi, so u don't need a car and also it is only a 30 second walk to the most FABULOUS VIEW IN THE WORLD known as the Santorini caldera. Our ritual is to grab a glass of chilled Santorini white wine and literally step across the street every evening to the finest sunsets on earth!! The house has very recently been renovated and so while still petite, has most mod cons incl. wi-fi, etc... great restaurants, cafes, shops, markets, museums, nightlife, etc. are mere steps from your front gate, you can buy fresh fish & veggies every morning at the outdoor market 50m away! And the beach is a 10 minute drive, a motorbike is easy to rent long term if you like, or a car, but the bus goes everywhere, and the walking/hiking is awesome as well! Yes, our home is humble, but this island will BLOW U AWAY!! :-D
As the house will most likely be mainly available in the off season spring/fall/winter months, it will make an awesome retreat for writers, artists, photographers, philosophers, etc. in the more peaceful months, but at the same time this is definitely a year-round destination...
*Btw, we just renovated and just returned to the island so more pics on the way asap!
Lo que te va a encantar del barrio
FIRA, is the capital of Santorini with around a thousand or so year-round residents, it can be quite bustling during high tourist season JUN/JULY/AUG but the rest of the year it's pretty mellow, esp in the evening after the cruiseships clear out, and the house is located just off the beaten path in an old neighborhood filled mostly with OLD native Santorinian families... the great thing is you won't need a car bcuz everything you need to survive is within walking distance and for the rest of the island you can walk, motorbike, or take the bus or taxi...
