Grant Dempsey with Family, Australia

Firstly the property was stunning. Family of 6 with the “kids” being all over 18 – so the 5 bedrooms made it easy. The outdoor area was fanstastic with pool and spa and view. Secondly Svati and her team service was floorless. From pre arrival to check in to frankly 18 hour a day “at your service” attitude arranging transfers and tours. Thirdly the daily breakfast was unexpected and fab. We chose 10am most days to allow some exercise pre (when it was cooler) and then be filled up (big breakfast!) for the day until dinner. Location for us was also brilliant. We enjoyed being a little bit out of Fira (about a 20 minute walk) so we could do a daily/nightly walk. In the end most tours are transfers and walking to and from restaurant/shops was part of the visual experience. We are glad we didn’t stay in Oia (too busy and too quiet) – but we did transfer there one afternoon and stay for dinner and also did the hike there early one morning and stay for lunch (before transfer back). The boat tour Svati organised was also a highlight – half day sunset. All in all this was one of the nicest family holidays we have done (6 days was enough) – great memories
