About this listing
Caveland is a complex of cave houses and terraces with amazing views and small gardens with lemon, pomegranate, orange, pear, vanilla and pistachio trees. The decor is largely home-spun, in refurbishing the walls we have used many types of local techniques and the rooms are furnished with refurbished antique and local furniture. In the late 18th century, this complex was used as a winery. In May 2011 we opened Caveland as a boutique hostel.
Each Cave has an A/C or a fan that can be turned into heating, heating blanket for the bed (you will appreciate this during the winter months), small kitchen corner with a fridge, double bed, closet.
Possibility to rent per week or month for discounted prices IN THE WINTER!
There is also a big communal kitchen for cooking, outdoor terraces and gardens with our dog Klara that stays outside! You can browse our bookshelves, join morning/evening yoga classes, chill out at the pool (June-September) or play tennis at our courts.

Les caves sont très originales et le cadre est très sympa. C'est un petit coin de paradis au milieu de santorin qui est une île pleine de touristes. C'est calme et la chambre est fraîche. Il font aussi auberge de jeunesse ce qui permet de rencontrer pas mal de monde ( tout en restant un lieu calme et d'apaisement). Je n'ai pas rencontré l'hôte car le cours de yoga était annulé... Dommage.
게스트하우스같았고 리셉션 데스크가 따로 있었습니다. 호스트를 직접 만날일이 없었습니다. 숙소 내부는 동굴처럼 되어 있어서 시원했고 에어컨을 켤 일이 없었습니다. 대신 침구류가 살짝 사용하기에 찝찝했습니다. 피라까지 걸어서 20분 정도 걸린것 같습니다.
Very very nice location, and we really enjoyed our stay there. Mid way from very nice beaches (Kamari) and from Fira (everything is around 12min away with a scooter which is great)
the apartment itself was great, and the swimming pool was a bonus as we didn't realise we were going to have one!
Very smooth communication with the hostel.
Caveland was an overall amazing hostel experience. From the hospitable staff, to the hostel pups, to the other tourists staying at the caves, my time at Caveland was so much fun. I would recommend to any young person looking to experience the beautiful island of Santorini and meet some awesome people along the way.
Nous avons passé un jolie séjour au calme dans cette auberge de jeunesse accueillante et chaleureuse juste à 20 minutes à pied de Fira. Avec la piscine c'est l'endroit idéal !
Simple, unusual accommodation. Very relaxed, nice pool & great location, away from hustle & bustle of Fire but within an easy walk.
Caveland is a perfect place to stay! Easy to find, we loved everything about it : the original and big rooms, the staff, very helpful and always available, the swimming pool, the free daily breakfasts... Thank you very much, we had a great time!

About the Host, Veronika And Kostas
Hi, we are Veronika and Kostas and we own Caveland in Santorini! It is a former 18th century winery that we turned into a hostel and opened up in 2011. We enjoy travelling, meeting new people, good food, music, movies! Kostas is Greek, he works as a guide and likes restoring old furniture (check out Caveland's furniture, it's mainly his job ) and Veronika is Slovakian and likes new business ventures and yoga (check out Caveland yoga classes and retreats). We have almost a 2 years old son Sebastian who loves taking road trips with us and sleeping in his carseat and a newborn daughter Malvina. We use airbnb as travelers and also as hosts! When staying at Caveland, you will most probably meet our staff. If you join our summer BBQs or yoga classes, you'll meet us, too!
You can reach us on our phone from 9AM until 1PM and then from 3PM until 9PM.
