Amelie Canaves

Amelie Canaves  sits among the historical cave houses on a winding footpath in the charming medieval village of Finikia. The house is comprised of three suites joined by a generous, sunny courtyard. The house, formerly a historical wine canava, has been transformed by careful renovations into a home with family comfort, fine modern finishes and traditional Cycladic island style. Just minutes away from the bustling village of Oia, here is the place to relax and breathe in the beauty and tranquility of authentic Santorini village life

 Amelie Canaves A little wooden gate opens from the footpath into the private enclosed courtyard, surrounded by plaster walls of soothing earth tones with original volcanic stone arches. There are several outdoor areas to enjoy here, surrounded by views of the surrounding village or the distant sea. An arbor with lush climbing vines heavy with fresh grapes provides shade from the bright sunlight.  The dining area offers a charming place for enjoying meals al fresco in the twilight or under the stars.  Stretch out on a chaise and watch the many brilliant colors of Santorini’s famous sunset unfurl over the sea, as day turns to night, and the twinkling of village lights in the distance come into view. The picturesque settlement of Finikia, with its domed chapels and tiny cave houses, will not cease to delight any time of the day or night. Each of the three suites has its own door from the courtyard terrace, a kitchenette and dedicated full bathroom with built-in shower. The interiors are bright and airy, letting the colors of the island shine through each window frame. Tasteful modern finishes blend with selectively preserved original features. Soft curving plaster walls, vaulted ceilings and archways showcase the house’s traditional Cycladic charm, reminders of its original use as a wine-storage canava during Santorini’s illustrious wine-making past. Hand-pigmented polished cement in a palette of soft neutrals graces the curving walls of the bathroom’s built-in shower and furnishings: a technique and detail unique to Santorini’s cave homes. Each built-in kitchenette includes a small refrigerator, countertop convenience appliances, cookware, china and cutlery. Altogether, Cellars of Amelie can accommodate up to a total of eleven guests in the three suites combined.  Suite one is great for a family of up to five guests, with three connected rooms containing a single day-bed and two double beds.  The bedrooms are connected by archway openings (not doors). You reach the bathroom through the second double bedroom. Suite two is similar: It can accommodate up to four guests in two connected rooms containing two single day beds and one double bed. You reach the bathroom via the double bedroom. Suite three can accommodate two guests in a double bed.
