Firostefani Holidays

Santorini’s crowning glory

More than any other resort on the island of Santorini, Firostefani pulls off the neat trick of being quiet, peaceful and reserved while also being captivating and fun – all just a short stroll from the vibrant bustling capital. Named for its position just next to, but a little higher up than, the capital of Fira, Firostefani (which translates literally as ‘Crown of Firo’) commands views over the island’s famous volcanic craters that are every bit as spectacular as those from its cosmopolitan neighbour, but with substantially less noise and far fewer crowds.

Firostefani holidays are for travellers who appreciate spectacle and love a dramatic view, but also cherish quiet time. Holidays to Firostefani deliver the full Greek island experience with more of a traditional flavour, allowing you to eat, drink, explore and indulge, and really feel like you’re having an island escape.

Your Firostefani questions, answered

Think of Firostefani as being a quiet, upscale suburb of the island’s capital. Walking into Fira along the scenic path between the two areas takes about 15 minutes.
Its clifftop location means there isn’t a beach, but relaxed Pori beach is a 10-minute drive to the north, or party-friendly Kamari is 20 minutes south.
In high summer – June to August – the mercury hovers in the low 30s, but the island’s north is also served by breezes that make it feel very pleasant.
