I am a budget traveler and don't indulge in luxury while traveling. For me experiencing the place is more important than business class flight or a five-star hotel. However, in Santorini, we wanted to experience something special. The Asteras Villas in Fira is the most beautiful little boutique hotel I have ever been to. The hotel is very expensive in summer and the rooms can cost close to $400-500 per night. But, we got great rates in the March offseason and paid less than half of that. On top of that, I have used Capital One credit card to book the hotel through Hotels.com to earn 10X miles back. I will write more stories about our stay and the place in general whenever I get some free time. meanwhile, we are going out to explore the town.
