Homeric Poems, Santorini – independent hotel review & guide!

Homeric Poems is the kind of hotel that you never want to leave. Ever. The hotel cascades down the cliff, just off the pedestrian path through Firostefani, and the views of the caldera are incredulously mesmerizing, either from your private terrace or the infinity pool. Homeric Poems is located in small village, a stone throw’s away from the busy capital of Santorini, Fira, and yet it is an oasis of calm that feels miles away from all the hustle and bustle. The décor of the hotel is perfect: simple and neutral, mostly white and grey slate with an occasional touch of azure blue here and there. Homeric Poems is adorned with broken amphorae and a collection of random quaint objects: I loved the little rusty cast iron in our bedroom. The rooms, which were very split level and spacious, were named after characters from one of my all-time favourite books The Odyssey, which I thought was a charming touch; I stayed in a room called Andromache. This is definitely a hotel I will be returning to, if such an opportunity comes my way. Click here for a link.

  1. […] Santorini will no doubt charm you with its picturesque little villages perched atop the soaring cliffs. The cliff edge of the caldera is decorated with small Cycladic houses, whose walls are all uniformly painted the purest of whites and whose roofs are azure-blue; they cascade down the cliffs until the point where these cliffs abruptly drop into the inviting blue sea. Though Thira is rather touristy, the majority of the villages are quiet. I stayed in the small quiet village called Firostefani, an oasis of peace and quiet, a short10-minute stroll from Santorini’s bustling capital, Fira. I would highly recommend staying in Firostefani, which has the most convenient location for exploring the rest of Thira being situated right in the middle of the island. I stayed at Homeric Poems. I reviewed the hotel here. […]
