How to Get There
Without doubt one of our favourite hotels we have ever been! The location is iconic, having breathtaking views of the volcano and sea and the room with hot tub simply amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and always kind enough to give good recommendations about restaurants and things to do in the island. 100% worthy!
My husband and I stayed in the most basic room at Oia Castle-- the junior suite (aka Volcano Suite). I'm sure the upgraded rooms are more luxurious, but we found our suite pretty spectacular. The photos of the all-white decor on the hotel website are exactly what you'll find in the room. There was plenty of space for us, the bathroom was clean and spacious enough, I loved having the wardrobe space to unpack, and the private patio/jacuzzi was lovely. We enjoyed wine from our private jacuzzi every night directly overlooking the sunset.
While the patio is private, it's definitely not out-of-view from passersby on the walkway, but we also never felt on display, either. Highly recommend this room as a honeymoon spot!
All the staff was phenomenal and so helpful with everything from getting our luggage to our room (we would've never found the hotel otherwise), to breakfast service, and especially with concierge and reservation assistance.
We walked the 10 minutes over to the Aspaki property several times. We loved lounging at the pool there and ordering drinks and lunch from the kitchen. The view from the pool is AMAZING. And we were nearly the only people there every time we visited.
Both of the properties are immaculately clean. Everything was perfectly updated. We'll certainly visit again! I'd choose Oia Castle over Aspaki again, simply because I loved the direct sunset view, plus we still got to enjoy the amenities of Aspaki.
Santorini - the Island whose mystery and beauty are only enhanced by the legend of the lost city of Atlantis.
This hotel in the little village of Oia, with cobbled stones paths, shuttered windows, delicate flowering pot plants, friendly old dogs, cheeky cats - this hotel is truly nestled in amongst the iconic white cave houses, overlooking old flour grain mills run by windmills of the past, deep deep blue waters that drop right off the little harbour of Ammoudi bay into volcanic depths.
Crystal clear waters, little colourful fishing boats moored at the small harbour that hosts three restaurants right on the water to soak up the delicious local fare, crisp wines and generous hospitality. Only a short walk down the hill or you can arrange a car.
Art Maison Castle Hotel in Oia, has a sister property about ten minutes walk that looks over the famous blue domed churches.
The Art Maison Castle hotel is only a few feet away from the old castle ruins, the meeting place of 100’s to witness the changing hues and colours of a magical Santorini sunset every evening, along with traditional Greek music played by old men with friendly smiles.
Many restaurants within 2-10 minutes walking from the hotel to choose from that means you can select any kind of food and timing doesn’t seem to matter from lunch through to late evenings.
As the cruise ship passengers leave the island there is a quiet lull that settles over the quaint Oia village.
From the hotel you can walk down the cobbled stones steps paths to the harbour - on return you can walk up or take an adorably sure footed donkey for only €6. I’m no rider and I really enjoyed it after I got over my nerves.
We had the room at the top of the resort - the bedroom was in a little cave, small cosy lounge with fridge/ mini bar / tea coffee Nespresso machine/ tv / ice water etc.
There is an alcove for all your bags and is nice having that seperate to the bedroom. Upstairs to the shower and bathroom area.
We then had a seperate perfectly positioned sun / relaxation area, with day beds, Chair table and jacuzzi. This was your own area private and overlooked the whole little bay and village. It’s literally across from the hotel room, so really convenient. Above it is the castle ruins.
We had uninterrupted views of the Amoudi beach and bay, the iconic sunsets and picturesque village with the sun coming into the sunbed area at about midday.
Having taken a tour of the island by private car and tour upon return to Oia and the hotel we felt it truly was the best of the best by views, cobbled stones streets and the proximity of the restaurants and things to do like sunset cruises etc.
Breakfast is fresh and many choices of eggs, traditional Greek fare, breads pastries and croissants.
Fresh juice, tea and coffee. Served with a smile and great breakfast eating space just across from our room, via cobbled stone steps.
The village of Oia has many shops selling high end and really a mixture of reasonable budgeted clothes, jewellery, mini markets, traditional art, foods, bars, restaurants, tour operators, art galleries, book shops etc. We dined at Pelecaros, Sunset Amoudi, and others.
From the hotel arranged by Aphrodite, we took a five hour private guided car tour with Nicholas. We visited the church on the Islands highest peak overlooking the whole island seeing such different perspective as you drove around the towns of Fira, Messaria, Pyrgos, Megalochori, and Empirio.
Met the old man building a new wall, and lite a candle in the old historical church at the Troulos Cape.
From there we visited a local winery and experienced first hand the caves - wine barrels and was guided through the wine making process. Hatzidakis Winery was small and quite interesting in its wines - we tasted five wines - the label was very symbolic - the symbol on one of their bottles is of an older hand reaching out to a young hand - a symbolic of passing the winery over to the next generation - when the wine makers daughter took over the winery after he died.
From there we visited some local beaches as Santorini has Red, white and Black sand beaches - we visited the black sand.
We then drove around the island rim atop the cliffs through the busy town of Fira where the cable car or Donkeys bring many tourists off the cruise ships.
Further on we stopped by Maria’s (Faros - local food market and tasting near Kaparies) where we drank local wine she makes, and some delicious traditional foods and sweets. Truely Greek - wonderful hospitality.
This tour gave a wonderful history at the 4D Lost Atlantic City Museum - a must see and gives a stunning visual movie narrative of the history of the island and the earth quakes, how they changed and shaped the island over the last 2500 years - interactive and great visuals.
We arranged transport from the airport to the hotel. If driving you could park in the village car parks - albeit its chaos, but the driver met our porter from the hotel and what a fun chaotic trip walking through the narrow cobbled stones streets - never would have found the hotel without him.
This was such a wonderful experience soaking up the Greek hospitality and the generous team with Aphrodite and Elios, our delightful breakfast host and the fearless bellman & all things need doing team.
