Santorini with its striking geological structure, is very different from other Cyclades Islands. It is unique worldwide and very impressive: a half submerged volcano with huge cliffs plunging into the open sea. The " Lost continent of Atlantis" legend began here! The island attracts large numbers of visitors to its reputed archaeological sites: Akrotiri  (a 'prehistoric Pompeii'), and ancient Thira, (a superb location overlooking the sea) and also to the old-world romantic charm of Ia Village, the black sandy beaches, the wine tasting and the many other monuments and villages.

Firostefani: is the northerly/suburban extension of Fira. A quiet village, which is mostly constituated of hotels, traditional houses, villas, studios and rooms.

The area proposes just a couple of restaurants and cafe but Fira, where all the activities are concentrated can be reached on foot.
There are 3 pages for Firostefani: presentation + top 5 star hotels, medium category hotels, and the more economical tourist types hotels.

It lies higher up than the rest of the Town, and one of the most picturesque and peaceful neighborhood which is perched on the cliffs of the Caldera, allowing panoramic views over  the Volcano. 
Mykonos Accommodation Center strongly recommendeds volcano rim lodgings, for their unique magical views.
Below are recommended properties for Firostefani, easy walking distance from Fira Town. Each district has own top accommodation with descriptions, photos and prices: Fira capital of the island, residential area  Imerovigli, and famous village Ia. (Oia).

Also see M.A.C. page: other areas on the island (attractive but without  these spectacular views):
