The space

The house is build inside the ground, like a cave. This makes it bioclimatic, which means that it keep the warmness on the winter, and is very fresh and cool during the summer! This is how the locals used to build their houses, in order to protect themselves also from the strong winter winds, which are very typical at the aegean sea in greece! Also, the comfort of the outdoor private space, is ideal for wondering under the clear sky during the summer night, and also for friendly gatherings at the noon, enjoying some local wine!

Guest access

Ioli is at the village of Vothonas in santorini which is located in the centre of the island in geographically advantageous position to travel around! The property is located at the traditional village, which means that there is only one road approaching the house, from the east side. The road is full of turns, as it used to be an old river. From the airport, using a taxi or a car, you turn left towards fira and after 500 m, you turn left again towards kamari. Moving 400m turn right at a narrow road, towards vothonas, and after 800m, at your left there is a huge pine tree, at the garden of the property. Outside there is a sign, writing "Guest House Kalitsi". If you approach the village from the central road, you need to walk 3 minutes to the property. From the port, arriving at the village of vothonas, after a mini-market on your right hand, you turn right at a steep downhill road, and then you continue straight. The road will make the circle of the village, and finally lead you at the old river road, where you have to turn right and move 300 or 400 m. At the two turns there are small signs, writing "guest house kalitsi". The property is 50m from the biggest church of the village called Panagia. If you need to ask directions from locals, tell them to lead you by car at the church panagia, and you will find it very easily. Taking the bus from the port, make sure it passes by the village of vothonas. From the bus stop, you need to find the way that takes you to the church of Panagia, which is at the south side of the village. Make sure, to contact me when finding difficullties! Taking a taxi, is easy! you just need to ask the taxi driver to call me at the phone for instructions! If you want, there is also the chance to arrange a transfer straight to the property!

Lovely Greek house at the center of Santorini. Spacious enough for the five of us. As it is not located in the city, we had to rent a car, but thanks to Irini it was an easy things to do as she recommended a car rental company. Loads of local tips too! Accommodating with Check in and Check out hours, and if she could not come and see us personally, her son was here to make sure everything was all right

Irini is a very nice host with friendly dog and cats! The house is charming and in a fantastic location to nearby sightseeing locations. It is a bit hard to drive to but you get used to it later. House is dusty but it's probably the area, not the host's fault. A charming place to relax and sit outside. Irini was very kind in helping to book a tour for us as well. There was also transportation arrangements made for us to the airport for a fee.

The quiet location of the the traditional construction will be unforgettable for us. Irini and her family are kind and ready to help. They arranged the transfer from the port and also put us in contact with a car rent company. As guests we are very happy to have found Irini and her facilities.

This place was wonderful for us. We felt secluded but also as if we were nestled in a historical neighborhood while in a beautiful cave home. The place is surrounded by blue domed churches and vibrant blooming fauna. Our quarters were tasteful and had details of handmade traditional Greek curtains and door coverings. The hostess is committed to providing the experience of Greek tradition and local made furnishings (notice the ceiling light fixtures), which lent to the overall charm of the establishment. There was an earthy feel combined with attention to aesthetic. We enjoyed the beautiful patio and garden. We loved the pets that belonged to the owners and their presence made us feel even more at home. The kitchen and bathroom were traditional and beautiful. A bit difficult for us to find by car initially, the location is pretty perfect. While feeling like you are in a remote neighborhood, is also extremely close to a very popular area with many restaurants and beaches. I recommend a wonderful bakery just up the main road where I had a chocolate/banana croissant that I am desperately trying to find a way to have flown in to me on a regular basis. We went from this area to Oia and were so happy to have spent the time we did at this place in the south of Santorini. There are many little gems on that part of the island and it offered a welcomed counter balance to the Beverly Hills feeling of Oia. I strongly recommend the town of Megalochori and a delightful little restaurant in the little town square featuring traditional Greek music and many older locals playing cards. Also, ask about a store where a woman makes prayer beads and rosaries, some out of olive wood. In closing, we strongly recommend Irini's place and hope to return someday.
