Peace on Earth

  • 5 of 5

If you ever thought you could find heaven on earth, it’s here. We enjoyed our stay so very much. The owners of this unique villa are very gracious and helpful. Thank you Fontinos & Ioanna! The villa was very clean and comfortable. We appreciated the free internet connection which helped us keep in contact with family back in Texas. The front porch/sitting area was perfect for enjoying the world famous sunsets of Oia. We also enjoyed our coffee (coffee maker provided in the kitchen) on the same porch the next morning. We are not sure when but we plan to revisit this villa in the future and everything else Oia has to offer.
