It is situated on the top floor of the complex. It has two big balconies – at the south you can enjoy the unique view of “Finikia” village from your Jacuzzi and at the north you can enjoy the view at the “Sigalas” winery and the sea. It is worth mentioning that during the harvest of the grapes, the smell is absolutely intoxicating. The interior makes you feel like being in a winery.
The interior design is with Cycladic architecture custom made for us. It is compiled from a big kitchen with big dining and living area and two bedrooms, in one of which there is a cozy loft with a small traditional window with view to “Finikia” village. The house is located in the traditional village FINIKIA.
It is one of the most beautiful villages on the island, located in Oia. With view over Baxedes beach, Ios and other Aegean islands.
Finikia is surrounded by slopes full of vineyards and stone threshing fields. It was fortunate enough not to sustain severe damages during the 1956 earthquake, and stands out for its architecture. According to poet and writer Kadio Kolimva, the buildings here have "...a different kind of wise analogy, because they don't have to be balanced on the rocks, like the ones built on the Caldera. The houses of Oia talk to the sea, the houses of Finikia talk to the earth. The excellent structure of facades and their harmonious matching of individual elements, stairs, courtyards, ovens, chimneys, give an answer to the question of analogy and measure...".
People of the plain such as winegrowers, farmers and ploughmen, used to live in Finikia. It was full of kanaves (wineries) -it is thought that on its heyday it had about 150-200 of them. As Kadio Kolimva writes the inhabitants of Finikia were "...those who carved and ploughed the fluffy soil, those who thrashed the barley, those who hunching coiled and harvested the vines. The "artists", because in such land, art is needed to produce its best and most valuable product, the wine. And when the boats of Panomeritika set sail for the seas of the North, their livelihood was carried in the holds to the end of the world... And from within their plain had they pushed back from their sweaty forehead their cap to farewelling their livelihood but also welcoming the new coming in".
A walk around Finikia is a unique experience (you should come early in the morning, though, or late in the evening, because during the summer it is realy hot). The houses are painted in various colors. Prickly pears are hidden in the narrow streets and there are fences built from black andesite. The staircases leading to the upper floors and the roofs, where they used to sun-dry figs and grapes, are masterpieces. And when the old courtyard gates open up, you can take a peek at the gardens and yards with the old wineries. At the centre of the village once stood a bakery and a grocery store. One of the best locations in Finikia is the yard of the Aghia Matrona church. From there you can gaze at the lower part of the beautiful village, the sea and the area of Baxedes, or the so-called "Potamoi" (paths that lead the water to the valley in the winter, even today).
