George and Stela are the kindest, most caring hosts - they stole our hearts. George picked us up from the airport and Stela had cold water waiting for us upon arrival. Although they speak minimal English, their son Nikolas came over to explain anything that needed explaining. The villa is in an excellent location close to Fira center and the rooms are very nice. Upon checkout, they arranged our taxi, gave us juice boxes, a souvenier of Santorini and big hugs. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
The best place we have stayed at! Owned and run by a great family, and they treat you as relatives as you arrive. Would definitely return and reccommend to anyone. Thanks so much for the short, but great stay!
very glad with my stay at the hotel. the couple who runs the place are amazingly nice.
Nice place and very warm people. All the family receives the visitor in a greek-warm-cool atmosphere. I loved the place!
Nice family-run pensione style accommodation. A bit hard to find initially (we ended up having to call and ask to be picked up from Fira town centre) however in a good location once you know how to get there, only about 10 minute walk to the centre of town and the main bus stop (which links to all other towns/ locations on the island) Only downside is the street is constantly noisy with passing traffic, so you can't leave the door open - but that's ok because there's air con.

Great family run hotel that made you feel really welcome and they seemed genuinely excited that we were staying there. The only negative would be the noise from the street below was very loud. The room had a nice deck with a great view and it would have been so nice to sit out there, however we couldn't hear each other speak over the noise of all the traffic. A pool would have made it near perfect!
George, the owner is super sweet...i highly recommend Villa Stella, felt almost like we were staying at a friends' family's house, but a hotel, so: plenty of privacy without the anonymity.
Very clean rooms with a good view. Staff picked us up from bus depot in Fira which made it easy to find. Staff were helpful very accommodating with welcome drinks. Only a 5 minute walk to town centre but still in a quiet area.
A lovely hotel - very simple but all we needed. A ten minute walk to the centre of town where buses to each beach are very accessible. I was in a group of three 21 year old females, would recommend for any age group. Staff were very helpful too and dropped us to bus station on departure.
Villa Stella is maybe five minutes from the center of Fira in a quiet part of the village, and the villa is absolutely lovely- gorgeous sea views, clean and beautiful rooms- this isn't the Hilton, but who needs that? The best part by far is the host family- Valentia is a wonderful, welcoming host, and her parents are so accommodating and friendly; they're more than worth the stay. If you want to feel like part of a Greek family during your stay, this is absolutely the place.
Easy walking distance to the centre of Fira. Lovely, bright and very clean rooms. The hosts were wonderfully kind people too. They don't speak much English but were so hospitable - often offering us refreshments and nibbles. We had a great stay. Thank you.
the host family is sooooooo kind!! Nice place to stay in Santorini!!
So close to the main town Thira, Great hospitality, the family there look after you and adopt you as one of their own. Definately will be staying there again next time i visit Santorini. Highly recommend it :)
The family running Stella Villa are wonderful. Even with a language barrier, I was able to communicate with them. They even drove us to the hospital when my sister got sick. Another important note, thy didn't realize we were sisters, so they asked if we needed our beds pushed together, so it appears they are gay friendly. Great place! I highly recommend it.
