Old style fully and recently renovated traditional cave, in a well- hidden peaceful canyon in Emporio village of Santorini. Experience living in a Cave, leading an agricultural life, hearing nature's sounds, being 10' min away from the beach!
The Cave was originally a farming storehouse which was renovated in 2004 by the owner and architect Babis Chiotis. Turned it into a beautiful relaxing place with a special 'aura', ideal for those who seek peace of mind and privacy, fully equipped with modern equipment and facilities. A “home atmosphere", enhanced by the smell of fresh vegetables and seasonable products from the local community. Experience what is like living in a traditional cave restored to perfection using traditional and ecological materials to accommodate the needs of a modern vacation house.
An atmospheric cave, where the walls have been refurbished keeping the ideal temperature both in summer and in winter time. The house keeps a very comfortable temperature all year round. It has recently been restored with respect to the unique local architecture and has been provided with the basic kitchen supplies and cutleries and a fridge. There is also a dining table, a sofa and of course you can also enjoy your meal at the terrace where you will find table and comfy chairs. The build- in beds and the modern styled furniture combined with the antique objects, give a balance to the place..Sleep in nature! The house can very comfortably accommodate up to 3 persons; there is a double bed (160X 200cm) and a single one.
