About our house

A traditional Santorini cave experience

Our house is located in the traditional village of Megalochori, a few meters from the square! It is there before 1845, its total area is 175 m2 (1883.68 sq. ft). It consists of two separate apartments and can comfortably accommodate 7 people in its 3 rooms.

The whole house maintains the traditional style of the island, with traditional domes and restored furniture, in the kitchen and in Bedroom No. 2 you will experience staying in a real cave.

The bedrooms are far apart so that everyone can have their privacy. In the large outdoor space everyone can sit together or everyone can enjoy their privacy, enjoying the palm tree that has been standing there for over a century.

In just 5 minutes you can find yourself on the main road where there is a bakery, a mini market and the bus stop that can take you to the center of Fira, Oia, or wherever you want, quickly, as the village is in a privileged position. In just 3 minutes from our house you are in the quiet square of our village, with restaurants, traditional cafes, wine bars. If you have rented a vehicle, you can park for free at the entrance of the village.

Meters away from the picturesque square of Megalochori this unique house narrates the life of our grandfather. Make some memories at this unique and family-friendly place. Home to historical mansions, old traditional houses, pirate hideaways and wine canavas, it has a history of merchants and wealthy land barons exporting Vinsanto wine that the island still produces. A prominent feature of the historical homes and mansions are the high walls, inner courtyards and solid wooden door entrances, built for privacy and for safety
