The 1809 Villa in Santorini was perfect! Our stay at this property was in Thira and represented the second stop in Greece during my BFF 2017 vacation/holiday. We were overwhelmed by the stunning beauty of this location!
The villa was perfect for accommodating my friends and me and the amenities were on point. Since we are all quite tall, (ie., 175 cm—5’ 9”and above) we were taken aback by the truly cave-like, lower ceilings in the upstairs rooms and for those of us who chose the upper floor sleeping quarters, we had to carefully walk, dress and shower in the stance of a sumo wrestler! LOL. Although, I think we adjusted to the lower ceilings during our stay with no problem.
Visitors reserving this house should know that the upstairs is ideal for children or visitors not much taller than 165 cm (5’ 5”), however. Otherwise, they too can walk, dress and shower in a squatted position, during their visit. Alternatively, guests sleeping in the upstairs can shower and dress in one of two downstairs bathrooms with significantly higher ceilings :-)
Dimos Pramatiotis is the classy and wonderful manager of Hotel Thireas which is steps away from the 1809 Villa---also maintained by him and his team. A huge benefit to booking this house is that breakfast is prepared in the hotel and delivered directly to the villa by Dimos and his staff each morning so there is no need to rush off to breakfast after a late night, for example. Just call Dimos and within 10 minutes he and his team will have a very nice continental breakfast delivered to the villa! The entire Hotel Thireas team was excellent, courteous, helpful, friendly and very thoughtful!
We really enjoyed our stay and was very happy that we found a house where we could all be under one roof, laughing, eating, taking pics and enjoying the hot tub---all within steps to shops and restaurants!
The pics we took and sent back home to friends and family were hugely successful resulting in numerous inquiries by family/friends’ chatting about plans to book future trips to this beautiful Santorini location.
We'll be back!! :-)
