The space

The house is build inside the ground, like a cave. This makes it bioclimatic, which means that it keep the warmness on the winter, and is very fresh and cool during the summer! This is how the locals used to build their houses, in order to protect themselves also from the strong winter winds, which are very typical at the aegean sea in greece! Also, the comfort of the outdoor private space, is ideal for wondering under the clear sky during the summer night, and also for friendly gatherings at the noon, enjoying some local wine!

Guest access

Ariadne is at the village of Vothonas in santorini which is located in the centre of the island in geographically advantageous position to travel around! The property is located at the traditional village, which means that there is only one road approaching the house, from the east side. The road is full of turns, as it used to be an old river. From the airport, using a taxi or a car, you turn left towards fira and after 500 m, you turn left again towards kamari. Moving 400m turn right at a narrow road, towards vothonas, and after 800m, at your left there is a huge pine tree, at the garden of the property. Outside there is a sign, writing "Guest House Kalitsi". If you approach the village from the central road, you need to walk 3 minutes to the property. From the port, arriving at the village of vothonas, after a mini-market on your right hand, you turn right at a steep downhill road, and then you continue straight. The road will make the circle of the village, and finally lead you at the old river road, where you have to turn right and move 300 or 400 m. At the two turns there are small signs, writing "guest house kalitsi". The property is 50m from the biggest church of the village called Panagia. If you need to ask directions from locals, tell them to lead you by car at the church panagia, and you will find it very easily. Taking the bus from the port, make sure it passes by the village of vothonas. From the bus stop, you need to find the way that takes you to the church of Panagia, which is at the south side of the village. Make sure, to contact me when finding difficullties! Taking a taxi, is easy! you just need to ask the taxi driver to call me at the phone for instructions! If you want, there is also the chance to arrange a transfer straight to the property!

Other things to note

The garden is a wonderful area to enjoy your time close to the beautiful flowers and trees, at the hammock or at the sofa, with many friendly animals, mostly cats, and a dog, around! The shade of the big pine tree, makes the hottest days easier!

I was a great stay other than the church bells and dogs barking.

We had a nice stay at the guesthouse which is big and clean with the bonus of front court area where we often relaxed in the evening , the host had been very accommodated and helpful giving us some local knowledge . It is a great location for a quiet and relaxed holiday.

Irini was a fantastic host and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect for our stay. We arrived at the house close to midnight and she had no problem meeting us so late into the night and helping us settle in. Her son was also very friendly and gave us plenty of advice on how to make the most of what Santorini has to offer. One thing I'll miss for sure are the adorable cats that wander around the courtyard. A lovely stay overall and we really couldn't of asked for anything better :)

Loved our time in the traditional cave house, it was the perfect setting for our week in Santorini. It is a bit off the beaten track; we may never have found it without Irini coming to find us! Irini was helpful, friendly and accommodating. I won't hesitate to recommend staying in her property.

Irini was a wonderful host, meeting us on arrival and walking with us into the town to show us places to eat. She was also very helpful with transport. The apartment is beautiful and very clean too.

The house was amazing, perfect place to escape and avoid the many tourists in Fira. The neighbourhood was lovely with shops and bakeries nearby. The location was the perfect base for travelling the length of Santorini, as it was centrally located. Living in a cave is definitely the way to go. Irini was great.

This house is beautiful, neat and great view. Walking distance to the Vothomas restaurants, bakery store and grocery store. The host helped to rent scrooters and delivered to our house which is super convenient. I definitely recommend this place to travellers.
