The Golden Sunset Villas is a three-star complex of rooms, studio, apartments and cave houses built into the side of the cliff overlooking the caldera. Being situated in Oia, Golden Sunset Villas lives up to its name with one of the best views of Santorini’s famous sunsets. Families can choose from a range of rooms and villas including a villa inside a traditional Greek windmill. The Windmill Villa can accommodate up to four people, making it perfect for families. However, parents of young children should note that due to the structure of the windmill, only children over the age of 6 are able to stay in it. The cave houses can accommodate up to four people and guests can get to experience the types of houses that local inhabitants lived since ancient times — albeit slightly more luxuriously.
The hotel serves a continental breakfast on guests’ private terrace while those without terraces are served breakfast near reception. All the facilities of Oia are a stone’s throw away, including a mini mart, good quality restaurants, a pharmacy and gift shops.

We came here with our two children for the beautiful sunsets, quiet atmosphere and close location to the heart of Oia. It beyond delivered. The sunsets were amazing. Each night we drank wine and watched a beautiful sunset from the comfort of our villa. With two kids, it was great we didn’t have to fight for a good seat at restaurants in Oia, and we could just relax and get an even better view from our villa. The pools are amazing. They did not have food available, but you could order through reception and they took care of placing orders and delivering food to you, which was perfect. The Villas were spacious and lovely, and the staff was so wonderfully helpful and went out of their way. We loved our stay here.

We didn't stay here but we did wander enough to find it. This is almost to the end of the city and the windmills were a good photo opportunity. This is lodging and there ae patios that offer a great view.
