A fully renovated cave house built in 1929, literally into the volcanic rock, nestled in the quiet village of Megalochori in the island of Santorini.
The Villa features a spacious living room with a fully equipped open space kitchen, 2 double bedrooms both with en-suite bathrooms, a courtyard with coffee table and built-in sofas, a terrace with dining table and an outdoor heated covered plunge pool.
The layout of the house takes the form of traditional Santorini houses and can accommodate up to four guests. Half of the house is built into the volcanic rock.
The main entrance wooden door that leads to a beautiful courtyard with built in sofas and a heated outdoor covered plunge pool gives a short idea of the minimal luxury that characterizes the property. Leaving the courtyard and entering the main house we see that the marble floor, the beautiful colors together with the carefully picked furniture offer a unique atmosphere that mixes scents from the past and contemporary comfort and luxury.
The original structure has been sensitively renovated. Restored to its original splendor, retaining the original layout and features, the gracious proportions and weathered building materials tell a real story and create the charm of this property.
Crescent-shaped Santorini is actually a group of islands consisting of Thíra, Thirassiá, Asproníssi, Palea and Nea Kaméni in the southernmost part of Cyclades. The whole complex of Santorini islands is still an active volcano and probably the only volcano in the world whose crater is in the sea. The islands that form Santorini came into existence as a result of intensive volcanic activity which created a large crater, the famous caldera. Santorini is a world-renowned destination due to its amazing volcanic topography, the romantic setting, the traditional villages and some of the best Greek beaches.
Megalochori is one of the most picturesque villages on the island. Its existence is recorded back to the 17th century. 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. Megalochori is a full of life village with friendly, lively residents. The central square is the heart of the village where locals gather in traditional cafes to unwind and have fun, creating a warm atmosphere. It is definitely worth spending an evening here in order to be part of this sentiment and taste local dishes under the natural shade the trees provide. You can find traditional taverns, cafes and shops in other corners of the village as well.
