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 space

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.

We had a dreamy time in this wonderful cave home! We love the fact that it was simultaneously secluded and close to beautiful nature AND based in a small town. We loved being abel to unwind each night on the rooftop patio. And we loved Anna's suggestions on what to do as much as we loved her home. They made our time in Santorini truly magical. Thank you! Take care, HG

OMG! Anna is amazing along with the beautiful cave room. She anticipated our needs before we even asked. The town is precious and Anna brought us fresh eggs, bread and local goat cheese. I would highly recommend this place.

We really recommend Anna and Theo's house. It's nice and cosy with a outside area and a splendid view from the the roof terrasse. The house is located in a authentic village but not far from the beach and other "places of interest" of the island. Anna and Theo are perfect host. They do their upmost to make you feel at home and they are always available if needed. A absolutely perfect week +++ NB: we travelled with a 15 months old baby which was not a problem.

My time in emporio at Anna&Theo's cave home was magical. The city is wonderfully serene and the view from the balcony is breathtaking. Anna really goes out of her way to create an authentic and comfortable experience. Flourishes abound that set this experience apart from any other; fresh produce, bread and feta cheese from the neighbors, for example. Anna is also a wonderful person and great host, ensuring the cave dwelling is immaculately maintained and really cozy. Cannot recommend this enough!
