About the neighbourhood
The Finikia Village still creates the feeling of the good old Greece of the mid 20th century. The people here leave their houses doors open all day and night, are welcoming everyone who visits their area with warmth and it is so peaceful and tranquil, that during the night you hear only the wind and nothing else. Its spacious terraces make you feel like you fly over the Aegean Sea. On a good visibility day, you can see at least 10 other islands on the horizon. it is the balcony of the Aegean Sea. On the same time it is located only 5 minutes walking distance from the heart of Oia, totally avoiding the massive crowds of tourists. It is a place blessed by god and nature.
