Spend your holiday in a typical Santorinian cave. The history of this space goes back 250 years and the cave represents local architecture. In the past, it was used for wine storage on a winery estate where Caveland is now situated. Today it is favoured by young couples or single travellers! It has a lounge and kitchen area, a bathroom, a/c and a fridge! At Caveland, we offer a mixture of accommodation in dorms and en suite private caves, so you’re free to mingle when you wish!

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, a wardrobe, a small sofa and outdoor seating area.

Guest access
Our swimming pool is available during the summer months (mid-May until October); sun loungers are free of charge and towels can be rented for a small fee. You can also use our communal kitchen if you decide to bake. Browse our bookshelves and exchange books, or have a cup of coffee/tea in our donation cafe at reception. Grab'n'go snacks and drinks are also available for purchase. You are welcome to join our yoga classes or one of the Greek sampling dinners we organise at a local tavern, just sign up at reception!

Other things to note
We have 3 dogs; they are usually around and ready to play.

Greek Islands are best discovered when driving and we recommend renting a vehicle for your stay. We can arrange an ATV (4-wheeler) upon your arrival and we can also pre-book a car for you which you can pick up from the airport or that can be delivered directly to Caveland. Our parking is free of charge. If you aren't an EU citizen, please have an international driving license with you!

Location

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.
