My place consists of 2 modernized traditional cave houses (old wineries) and 1 traditional Santorinian house. It is ideal for large group of friends & families who wish to be next to each other (max 12 people). It offers privacy and serenity for relaxing. It is ideal for yoga, tai chi, meditation groups. The houses are situated in the traditional settlement of Finikia, a quiet village at the top of the hill, 10 minute walk to Oia, providing magnificent views to the Aegean Sea (sunrise-sunset).
My place is unique for large group of friends or families with children, who wish to be close to each other, as it consists of 3 independent houses in the same area. The houses share the same large terraces which offer amazing views to the Aegean, to the village and Oia. Each house has its own kitchenette facilities and its own bathroom. The couples or families can share the price by booking the whole house as such. Please write to me anytime, if you wish to know more or if you have any queries, over this platform.
I will always be around to welcome you and sometimes when I will not be available, my wife Eleni or a colleague of mine will be there, with the same smile, eager to please and support. We are all around, most of the day to guide you to interesting places to visit, to recommend places to eat and drink and anything you wish for. We understand you come to my place to relax, sleep, have no worries and also enjoy the beauties of the island to its most. We always provide fresh cool bottled water and some basics for your first breakfast (like fresh fruit, bread, butter, honey, marmalade, coffee, sugar, beers, some sweets). Many local stores are around for your next day shopping. Restaurants and taverns are plenty in the village of Finikia and in Oia. Everything is near by, at small walking distances. My place is unique as it offers privacy and serenity while at the same time is very near the buzz and the vibrant island life. Have a Wonderful Stay, with our blessings and love.

You can also take a bus from the airport to go to main town Fira bus terminal and then change bus towards Oia. You get off at the bus stop just before Oia town, called "Santorini mou restaurant".

My place is almost at the top, only 100 meters from the main street/road (joining Fira to Oia) and the bus stop. It has a characteristic triangular roof design as you can see in the photos.

As a professional civil & construction engineer and hotel owner for over 35 years I love traveling. I have been hosting and meeting all kinds of people from around the world. It's magic. I was born by the seaside, I have been a keen medal swimmer & water polo player during my college years. I also used to play lots of football as a main goalkeeper in my local team & other teams. As years go by, I play some music, relaxing tennis shots and practicing my patience with chess. I have been honored by the Ministry of Development in 2008 with an entrepreneurship award for my services towards development and tourism in Korinthia. I am lucky enough to have two wonderful grown up children working in London, a lovely supporting wife and quite a few loyal true friends and relatives.
I am very excited with my new venture in Foinikia, Oia and I look forward hosting you and meeting you. I will be very happy to welcome you with a big smile and a good glass of local wine!
My motto has always been: Keep Going.
