A traditional man-made cave that represents the best of Santorini architecture! The history of the cave goes back 250 years when it was used as a stable in a former winery complex! It is currently one of the most popular cave apartments at Caveland and it attracts young hip travellers from around the world, even honeymooners! It has a private kitchen area, bathroom and an extra bed in the lounge. At Caveland, we offer a mixture of accommodation; in dorms and fully en suite private caves!

The space
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 homespun; when renovating the walls we 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.

The Cave has an A/C for cool or warm air, an electric heated blanket for the bed (a luxury during the winter months), a small kitchen area equipped with everything you would need during your stay, a fridge, an extra built-in sofa bed in the lounge area, a double bed, a closet, an armchair and a desk.

Where you’ll be

Thira, Santorini, Greece

We are nested in a very typical local village. Karterados is the first village you pass heading south from our capital; Fira. From Fira town, it is a 25-minute walk or 5 minutes by bus.

The area of Caveland is quiet and it offers a perfect refuge from crowds of tourists. Still, it is on the main bus route to the majority of destinations. Just around the corner, there is a traditional village with its winding paths that are only accessible by foot, on a donkey or a small scooter.

In close proximity you'll find everything necessary:

Supermarkets: 2 mini markets (3 min walk), a big supermarket with fresh vegetables, fruits and meat (13 min walk), a fish shop with the fresh catch of the day (15 min walk).

Restaurants: There's plenty of restaurants on the way from Caveland to Fira town, the closest restaurant is a 3 min walk away.

Beaches: 5-minute drive to a local beach in Karterados, 15 minutes by bus to a famous black beach in Kamari, and 25 minutes by bus to a celebrated black beach in Perissa.
