Fava's best asset was the wonderful host Mr Gregoris. He was so helpful
We were the first to experience the new apartments fava residence built over the winter. The complex was new and modern. It lacked a good water system. We had a slow, low pressure almost luke warm shower... :-/
It was fun to experience the traditional village of Fanikia, Santorini can be very tourist focused so it was nice to escape that. We started our trip in oia on the cliff with incredible views. So the value for money seemed bit pricey at Fava after that experience . We were spoilt and use to waking up to breakfast and house cleaning.
I do think Fava's original cave houses would be amazing and the new ones will get better with improvements.
We did fall upon a fantastic restaurant called Santorini Mou in Finkia. This is a must if staying in oia.
Hope this helps.
The service of Mr Gregory was second to none with his knowledge of the island and making our stay very very pleasant the service he provided with the changing of linen and towels was more than my husband and i expected excellent in ever way .
The area was lovely and quite amongst the local people who are very friendly you are not far from restaurants,shopping and the beach is a bus ride away and the bus are very easy to travel on the cost is 1.60euro each for each bus ride a great service to use.
Oia is a great evening out with many very good restaurants and excellent views changing everyday.

The room was well laid out and very clean-the manager was helpful and efficient. The walk to the rooms was a challenge but doable-the roads in Oia get very busy with coaches and there aren't many paths-the beach had black sand so wear overshoes
Mr Gregory received us very well and was available to give us many usefull advices. We had a very nice stay in the Estia suite at Fava Residence in Finikia. In one word, Fava residence in Finikia is my best definition of HOLIDAYS! Looking forward to come again, even for a week end, and enjoy vacation in Santorini!!!
