02 Apr Relaxing
If you are searching for a stylish, relaxing, comfortable, friendly place to stay in Santorini, I cannot recommend Kalestesia Suites highly enough.The location of the suites give panoramic views of the caldera and most of the island, though the location is a little out of the way and without precise directions quite difficult to find, more so if you arrive after dark as we did. Do not hire a car any larger than a Nissan note as the suites are reached through a very narrow gap between buildings ( see photo)Kalestesia Suites are perfect for couples who want a relaxing break so iIf you want to be in the centre of the action this is not the place for you, although the main centres of Fira, Oia or Kamari can be reached easily by car or bus. The centre of Akrotiri, with its few retaurants, is within a twenty minute walk down a steep hill.I cannot praise the staff highly enough, they are very friendly and helpful. In fact one morning whilst having breakfast ( which was excellent and filling) a tourist arrived explaining to Leftie, the waiter (terrific bloke), he was lost and asking for directions. After trying to explain how to get to his destination for 5 minutes with little success,Leftie jumped into his car for the tourist to follow to his destination. I must add Leftie did not abandon his guests.The restaurant and pool areas are very attractive with terrific views. There is also a small gym for those who find relaxing difficult.
