About this listing
Our house is a very old typical cave house ,cave houses are digged in the lava of the volcano. and are at the edge of the cliff .
it is in the oldest neighborhood of Oia next to the castle the best spot to watch the sunset .
We are in the centre of all the activities shops restaurants s.markets of the busiest pedestrian road, ta the same time going 35 steps down our guests drop in another century finding the absolute calmness of a greek island.
Three separated houses with a very big sheared veranda along,
designed with such a way that each house has a discreet privacy.
HOUSE 2 : 24,07m2 Veranda 21,90m2
the house is based in the idea of open space ,there are two double beds, in mezzanines (facing each other) one bathroom, a living room area with couches , and a fully equipped kitchen,WiFi, fans and heating for winter months, And of course the hot spot of the house is the super privileged terrace with 180 degrees view , the whole caldera of Sandorini island in front of you , the volcano and Thirasia island on your right. In whatever bed you sleep in House 2 there is a small window facing the view from the upper levels of the house. We have tried to keep the tradition of the cave houses and interfere as less as possible with the natural form so there is no separation of rooms in order to get advantage of the light in the whole house. The privacy for each room here again is cleverly approched.
You arrive in Santorini either by boat to the port of Athinios or to the airport by plane.
In both cases you need to use a bus or a taxi or a transfer towards Oia.
Please Note that you need to walk down the beautiful caldera which is approximately 36 steps from the main pedestrian path of Oia.
Here is a link for a real time video showing the way from the Koinotita arcade to the house
Because of the stairs our houses are not recommended for older or disabled persons.

Other things to note

Rules of the house
Please read the following carefully
-For safety reasons (vicinity with the caldera) we cannot host children under 12 years old
_The water is very precious in the island so please try not to waste it .
__However it is not recommended to drink it, you better use bottled water you can find it in all supermarkets
_When you want to have a shower you can switch on the hot water ( it is marked on the electric board it takes 15 minutes to have hot water.
I recommend you to turn it off for safety reasons when you have your shower please don't leave it open
_Please do not throw toilet paper or any other disposables or sanitary napkins in the toilet
As this will block the pipes . Please use the basket provided at the sides of the toilet.
_Please turn off the lights when you leave the house
_Please close the window before you leave the house
_Please close the umbrella before you leave the house
because the wind changes suddenly and when the umbrella it is opened it can provoke an accident by falling down to the terrace and if the wind is very strong it can fall to the terrace underneath our terrace so it can become very dangerous without surveillance .
_Please respect the area of the property. After all, it is our house and we want to keep it clean for the next friend/guest who will stay in it.
You have your private space in the balcony to enjoy, but please try not to disturb your neighbor's privacy and relaxation time.
Thank you very much for your attention and co- operation.
Have an enjoyable stay

I am an Interior Architect, I love travelling around the world meeting new people, finding out about new cultures, new traditions exploring different ways of thinking, behaving, and leaving. I am very intrigued and I admire every merging of thoughts, materials, landscapes, or different fields that might seem irrelevant or unrelated but they found a balance to achieve it.
I'm also very interested in yoga, taichi, and meditating one hour daily (vipassana).
