The village of Firostefani

The Agali Houses Hotel in Firostefani is built at a spot called Agali, meaning “embrace”, because it looks like a hug in the centre of the caldera. Once here passed a path leading to a small beach in the caldera. Over the years the trail was quenched, but the beauty and magnificence of the caldera remain unchanged and you can feel and experience the unique aura during your stay at Agali Hotel.

Santorini is one of the most beautiful islands and one of the top tourist destinations of the world. The breathtaking views to the caldera, overlooking the deep blue of a calm sea, the relaxing breeze, the bright sun and the unique cultures developed in the island makes it a destination like no other.

Firostefani is the village where Agali Houses Hotel is located. It is the natural extension of Fira to the north side and one of the most beautiful areas of the island with spectacular views of the volcano and the sea. The village's name means “crown of Fira” and Firostefani is one of the most elegant, quiet and sophisticated neighbourhoods of Santorini.

Here you will find some of the most interesting restaurants on the island serving traditional Greek cuisine, Italian specialties and sushi. Also, there are several options for coffee and drinks overlooking the volcano and a super market for your daily supplies.

You can reach the centre of Fira after a ten minutes walk, from the path starting outside the Agali Hotel, having always by your side views to the volcano, the caldera and the sea.
