Christa's place is probably my most favorite place to stay anywhere in Europe. She is the hostess with the mostess and a very wicked old lady to boot, only matched by myself. Forgotten how many visit we have had, but she is now a wonderful friend. We always stay in number 2 room because it is closest to the steps up and the public patio down and of course to Christa herself. Also I love the way I can lie in bed and still see the Caldera. I will be very sad if and when you retire from Aris Caves. ... Much love Libby read hotel review

    Love the way we can cook all our own food and no need to even go to the restaurants.

As fan of the greek islands, we are the 2. time on the island thira staying. This holiday, which we as a gift from our daughter got, exceeded everything has ever seen. Actually you can the impressions and experiences not really widergeben. Particular emphasis should be on affectionate handling of Christa with magnificent piece of thira, which you with aris as their own name may. Every angle is lovingly decorated and with the help of the caring caretaker-couple fostered and maintained. This holiday will remain unforgettable for us. A real dream vacation! Thank you read hotel review
