Santorini dreams come to life in this fully renovated traditional cave house located in the heart of world famous Oia. Perched high atop the caldera cliffs, the infinite views of the volcano and the glittering Aegean sea and sky, framed by windmills and byzantine church domes, will leave you breathless. The famous Oia sunset is the star of this home. You will not believe the view as you watch the sun cascade below the horizon line directly in front you on your private terrace: A daily spectacle to be enjoyed from the most privileged of vantage points…
A large Jacuzzi is to be installed on this terrace at the end of June 2015-luxurious beyond words: sitting at this highest point, soak in the sights of the picturesque village of Oia day or night, with breathtaking views spanning the famous caldera cliffs, neighboring villages and nearby small islands, all cloaked in the bright azure hues of the sea and sky or draped in the brilliant colors of sunset.
Daily linens and maid service are provided. Canava Oia View served as a winery and cellar (or “canava”) at the turn of the century. The original structure has been sensitively renovated, preserving the layout and other features as creative design elements, relics of the building’s important role in Santorini history. The sunken cylindrical troughs visible on the floor, which now act as unusual lighting features, were actually once used for distilling the wine after the grapes were pressed. The beautiful organic shape and proportions of the smooth walls, vaulted ceilings and arched openings tell the story of the canava and how it was constructed by carving into the soft pumice stone earth of the village hills. Another notable feature of the house is its natural ambient interior temperature. The natural insulation of the earthen walls of the space regulated the temperature of the canava year-round, to help preserve the wine stored in barrels. Today, this natural insulation continues to produce an advantage for the house, maintaining a constantly cool interior environment, even on the hottest summer days.
Canava Oia View is perfect for a paradise getaway for a family of up to four guests seeking a unique, private home with ultimate caldera living in Oia.
