Stayed here for a week with friends. Family run hotel, very friendly and welcoming. Owner Elias couldn't do enough for us and the homemade cakes on offer at breakfast were to die for - all cooked daily by his mother! Rooms very comfortable, well maintained pool and stunning courtyard swathed in bougainvillea and other exotic plants. A real oasis of calm in a busy town.

Elias, the host and his beautiful mom are 2 of the friendliest humans in Santorini. The welcome greeting, the generous hospitality and warm smiles were greatly appreciated. Magas, the friendly dog was the highlight of our stay, approached us with love and warmth. The place is spectacular. The courtyard was clean, well kept. Elias and his mother truly put a lot of heart and hard work to offer a clean and beautiful environment to their guests. My family and I truly felt we were at home, away from home. A must stay for a family. We were offered daily updates on buse, taxis and excursions. Elias was so attentive to our needs and made sure we were enjoying our stay by constantly recommending ideas on where to go and what to see. I cannot thank him enough for his dedication in making us fulfill our stay at Santorini with love and joy... thanks again for Ersi Villa

The good location and the friendly host are the two main positive points regarding this accommodation. The rooms are exactly as depicted in photos, very basic and simple. Despite we had booked a room with a large double bed, we received a room with two small beds. The greatest issue for us was that the room did not have opaque window blinds and we couldn't get a good sleep. Though, it was quiet. The bathroom was too tiny, but for a short stay, it was just sufficient. Overall, it was a very basic room, maybe an option for those planning to spend more time outside.

We stayed at Ersi Villas at the end of June. This lovely little gem is exactly how it looks on the website. It is very hilly around the hotel but this is the same for most of the hotels in the area. The family are are very welcoming and always available to help with any queries or to book trips. We had a lovely room with a terrace overlooking the sea and a good sized fridge. The hotel is spotless and the homemade breakfast is delicious. We booked the hotel to be near Fira yet not wanting to be in the centre and were quite overwhelmed at how lovely Friostefani is. A pretty little village 5 mins walk from the hotel with a few shops and plenty of restaurants. The highlight being a perfect spot to dine and watch the sunset. Fira is only a 10-15 min walk along the road or 20-25 mins along the scenic coastal path with stunning views. Santorini is a stunning island and would definitely stay in Ersi Villas again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it to others. Elias was very helpful and generous with his time helping us out - all recommendations that he gave us for things to do and places to eat were spot on. The location was great, only a few minutes walk to Firostefani village and the caldera views, but far enough to get some peace and quiet after a day battling the crowds.

We had a great experience at Ersi Villas. Elias provided timely communication leading up to our stay and was super accommodating and informative during our time there. The villas are clean, and modern and are a short walk to the central area in Firastefani. You really do fee like home when you get back to your villa after a long day of sight-seeing.

We stayed 3 nights at Ersi Villas in June and loved it. It is located in convenient area. Room is clean with nice setting outside to relax Very nice host who can explain to you in details for what you can do in the island. We would love to come back here.

This place is the best. Really homely feel about it, from the perfectly manicured lush gardens, to the clean pool, and excellent service by the host. Its a really quiet and peaceful place where you can unwind and de-stress. The views to the sea on the east are spectacular. The rooms were spotlessly clean, nice bathrooms, comfy beds with crisp linens, and big fluffy pillows. The rooms are also very well sound proofed, we hardly heard any noise from neighbours or the outside. The location is prefect being slap bang in between Fira and Immerovigli. Both of which are nice places to see, but too busy to stay in (in my opinion). So this offers you a great location but a peaceful one. The host is also happy to arrange transfers and car rentals for you, nothing is too much trouble. Cant recommend higher.

We stayed here for a family holiday and what a great little spot. Ersi Villas are located about five minutes walk from the Caldera and an easy ten minute walk into Fira. Take the top path into Fira, the views are spectacular! Elias is so welcoming and helpful, nothing is too much trouble for him and he will even pick you up and drop you off at the bus depot in Fira. The accomodation is simple, but immaculate and clean. Breakfast is a Greek breakfast, check out the yoghurt and apple cake, it's great : ) Overall great value for money and an enjoyable stay. This place is fantastic value for money

We stayed as a party of 5 for two nights and had two separate accommodations, both fabulous! My husband and I were in the Cave House, a unique experience! It was a fantastic space and we had our own little garden. Breakfast was continental style with lots of choice. Elias was a fab host, very helpful, gave us lots of information on what to see and do. Would highly recommend staying at Ersi Villas.
