A small ‘village’ of ten self-catering houses, situated in the northern part of Santorini, on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Oia.
As well as superb views, the location offers tranquility and relaxation. The houses are built of pumice, white-washed in the local style, and manage to combine traditional character with modern facilities. There are three types of houses: suites (the largest and most luxurious option, some of which have private Jacuzzis outside), maisonettes, and studios.
Each house is equipped with air-conditioning, satellite TV, a DVD player and internet access, and all are furnished in simple style. From the houses, steps lead down to a swimming pool. Breakfast is served at Ikies, and there is a daily cleaning service, but otherwise the houses are self-catering.
Each has a kitchenette for preparing food; alternatively, Santorini has some of Greece's best restaurants, as well as simple tavernas to choose from. In the evenings, enjoy a drink on your private terrace and watch the sun dip into the sea.
Why we love it
The houses are dramatically positioned on the cliff-tops, overlooking Santorini's famous caldera, the result of a massive volcanic eruption 3,000 years ago.
