About our home

THE HOUSE IS NOT OFFERED FOR EXCHANGE APRIL-OCT as we rent it. It is a traditional cave house of Oia (the most beautiful village of Santorini), built on the Caldera cliff with a spectacular 180 degrees view of the caldera, volcano, Thirassia island, Aspronissi. The small villa is consisted of two apartments each one with fully equipped kitchen, a bedroom, a WC, shower or bath and veranda and a small studio with a bedroom, a WC, shower and a veranda. Every unit has the same amazing view as the house is facing the sea, private entrance and private veranda. Perfectly sheltered from the cold north winds due to its location down on the cliff, the villa is an ideal place to stay and enjoy your coffee in the patio during spring time and autumn, even during winter time.

There is a path down from the house that leads into a small beach with small volcanic stones and amazing caldera view. You need to step down about 250 steps so it is suggested for athletic types. There are also sandy beaches only 3 kms from the house and a public swimming pool-cafe called Lioyerma only 8 minutes walking distance from the villa.

The largest apartment No 2 (is a cave house about 67 sq.m.) accommodates up to 4 people, has one separate bedroom with a king size bed and two single sofa-beds in the living room. It also has a fully equipped kitchen, a dishwasher, a telephone and a bathroom with shower. It has a veranda about 16 sq.meters.

The above mentioned apartment can be connected (through a door and a corridor with 6 steps) with a Studio about 50 sq.m.. Apartment No 1, is actually a large Studio that has one double bed, and one single sofa-bed in the same area. Accommodates 2-3 persons. It also has a fully equipped kitchen, a washing machine, a TV, a telephone and a bathroom with bathtub. It has a veranda about 17 sq.meters.

There is also a small Studio (about 13 sq.m.) above of apartment no 2, which can accommodate 2-3 adults, has one seperate (by a door) bedroom with a double bed with a wonderful sea view and one single sofa-bed in the entrance hall. There is no kitchen. It has an aircondition, a refrigerator in the closet, a coffee machine and a bathroom with shower. It has a small balcony and a veranda about 6 sq.meters.

There are 140-160 steps from the main pedestrian street to the villa, so our house is not recommented for persons with disabilities.

Minimum stay 6 nights

Where is it?


Walking to the house is like walking through a postcard.

Oia is where all of the famous photos of Santorini are taken, and the house is surrounded by the famous blue and white domed churches, and even a couple of windmills. So, the location is excellent! Also due to its location our house is perfectly protected from the strong north winds and you can enjoy sitting outside anytime even during winter. There are a multitude of cafes/restaurants to choose from, and the main pedestrian strip of Oia is up at the top of the stairs only 3 minutes walking distance.

The house is located in the heart of the traditional settlement of Oia village, so you do not need a car to go around the village. The main pedestrian-commercial street of the village (where are located most of the shops, taverns, bars and restaurants) is only 5 minutes walking distance from the house and the castle where all the people are gathering for watching the famous Oia's sunset is also 5 minutes. The supermarkets and a bakery shop are located in the bus terminal area, only 7 minutes walking distance from the villa. There is a public parking area at about 150 meters from the house and a public swimming pool-cafe only 6 minutes walking distance from the villa.
