About This Listing
This cave house, hanging on the cliffs of the caldera, is part of a traditional synthesis of houses owned by a family of architects.
The complex used to be the old bakery of Oia and it was recently restored with respect to the unique local architecture. The marble floors, the built in beds and the antique furniture together with modern amenities strike the right balance between sophistication and coziness.
Out on the wide terrace literally on the rim of the caldera, the sensational view of the volcano will leave you breathless. The deep blue of the sea landscape and the picturesque
domed houses carved in the volcanic earth create a calm and magic atmosphere filling you with emotions you have never felt before.
Our houses are located just a few steps from the heart of the village of Oia. All traditional tavernas and high quality restaurants, cafes, shops and the world famous Oia sunset are at a walking distance. The complex is very close to the parking area, taxis and public transportation.
Originally renovated for personal use, the houses combine traditional style with comfort. The built in king size bed (180 x 200 cm) with high quality latex mattress and the fully equipped kitchen with a small oven, ceramic hot plates, small refrigerator, coffee machine, electric kettle, toaster and cutlery will make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
We will meet upon your arrival in Oia and I will be at your disposal for anything you may need during your stay. I will be glad to share with you info about Santorini and everything that is worth doing here.

Our stay at Parathira cave house 1 was a delightful way to start our two weeks on Santorini. The views were unbeatable and waking up to them everyday was fabulous. It was clean and inviting with a complimentary bottle of wine, a bottle of water, and a basket of fruit. Anna kept the patio and the rental neat and tidy. The location in Oia was great. Close to shopping and restaurants. We would highly recommend it.
I couldn't imagine a better place to stay in Santorini. The cave house 1 is absolutely perfect and the view is stunning. The location is great, the terrace is phenomenal. The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen is small, but well equipped. Laskarina was wonderful about arranging pick-ups, giving great restaurant recommendations and making sure that we were having a good time. I highly recommend this place.
Having never been to Oia, was not sure how central the location was: it could not have been better. Pretty much right in the middle of the best part of town. We loved Skala and Thalami for dinner, both a stones throw from the room. Plenty of bakeries too: we'd frequently get things for take-out and eat on the amazing porch.. as others have noted, the view has to be seen to be believed. Yes no sunset view, but we didn't like to be near the bigger crowds anyway. Laskarina and husband were great: they even provided a phone with local sim card to contact them. Cave wi-fi worked great and was super handy.
We had an awesome time in Oia, Laskarina and John were amazingly supportive and really cared about our needs. The place is beautiful and the view breathtaking! Everything was very clean and the location was few steps away off the main avenue. Laskarina and John help us with a catamaran reservation wich was a perfect experience to see santorini and even gave us a list of their favourite things to in santorini -these recommendations were perfect- they went out of their way to help us! The place is exactly as shown in the pictures a and sleeping in cave is a unique experience since it's very quiet and cozy! We would come back to this place without hesitation!
Thanks Laskarina and John you made the things very easy for us and made an unforgettable trip!
Amazing stay!! Couldn't have asked for more. Cannot recommend highly enough. If youre coming to Santorini this is where you need to stay!
We had a simply amazing time on our short break in the cave house! It was exactly as described and in the pictures!
Laskarina and John were really helpful and the house was kept clean and veranda tidy by lovely Anna.
We had everything we needed to make our stay super comfortable.
All the finishing touches were thought of including a bottle of wine and water waiting for us in the fridge!
Throughout our stay Laskarina was really helpful when we were organising our sunset cruise and arranging where to get collected etc.
We had the most amazing time and would highly recommend to others!
Thanks for a wonderful time!
This place was everything we expected it to be and more, it was perfect and we cannot recommend it highly enough. Laskarina was very helpful with organising transfers and recommending great places to eat and see, she made us feel incredibly welcome and everything was made very easy. I would go back in a heartbeat.
