You will feel easily at home in this carefully renovated historical cave house which was literally excavated and restored into a comfortable family friendly home. The high position at the very top of the cliff has two supreme advantages not often found in Oia: Very few stairs to climb and the best views to be found in Oia! Where other houses further below have up to 100 stairs to climb, this house is reached by a mere 20 steps.
The smooth white organic curves of the interior envelop you like a cool cocoon. You enter the house in the living and dining room.
