Canava Oia View The interior of this newly renovated house is all about Cycladic charm and elegant simplicity. Organic, curving plaster walls, vaulted ceilings and polished cement floors are finished in soft neutrals, gracefully complementing nature’s palette of brilliant blue just outside your doorstep. Carefully preserved details from the original house are combined with new built-in Cycladic style furnishings and tastefully selected antiques and art, bridging modern elegance with traditional warmth and character. The central open-plan living room and dining room is bright and airy. A built-in daybed in the Living Room functions as a sofa or a comfortable single bed. The full size kitchen with marble details has everything you need to feel right at home. It is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, a full size cooktop/oven, small convenience appliances, cookware, china and cutlery. Connected to the living room with a soft veil of drapery, is one private bedroom. Cocooned below romantic vaulted ceilings and nestled into the caldera cliffs, it features a unique hand-formed built in Cycladic style queen bed. A towering light well in curving plaster reaches high up to funnel natural light into this room. There is a separate walk-in closet. The large bath is sensual and luxurious, with hand-made pigmented plaster walls and fixtures in soothing earth tones. The generous walk-in shower has a large interior window and a surprising pop of color: a plaster in vibrant blue tones. The bathroom floors are hand-set pebble mosaics, bringing the feeling of nature inside . Down a winding Cycladic cement stair hugging curving plaster walls, is a cozy hide-away second bedroom with a single bed. The built-in bed and furnishings are simple and modern. The large private second floor terrace puts you at center stage for the Oia sunsets that put Santorini on the map. From your own private perch, watch the sun fall into the sea directly in front of you, followed by the infinite colors of nature’s paintbrush across the sky. While the mad rush of tourists retreats from Oia’s “famous sunset” en masse, you will be privileged to linger over every last color of the day. Oia’s only two remaining windmills, fully restored, flank the terrace, bringing a special feeling to this place not to be found anywhere else in Santorini.

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.
