Maria Oikonomou: 'This cave villa was constructed ages ago in the traditional manner of the people of Santorini at this time. They were dug into the volcanic rock so as to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This is bioclimatic architecture. I have artistically decorated it and also updated the villa to protect against humidity. The panoramic views from the patio are breathtaking! Enjoy lying on the mattress on the bench in the afternoon and evening and viewing the lights of the other cities on the top edge of the Caldera. In the evening gaze at the sparkling stars and moon in the dark sky. The house, located in the old part of Oia, is like a love nest, small but unique and idyllic, about 60 m2 in size. Every single hour of the day and night is magnificent from the romantic veranda of my little villa! I welcome you to my villa and the beautiful island of Santorini'.

Your "Cave winery" in the depths of GREEK PARADISE!

In our efforts to provide our guests with a truly one-of–a-kind island experience, a special space has recently been created deep in the interior of Greek Paradise cave house to provide our guests with a unique, cozy area to relax! This inner "nest" fits up to 4 people.
This second cave is in the depths of GREEK PARADISE cave house, off the bedroom. It is 2 meters under the level of the house allowing for comfortable temperatures throughout the seasons. Its round shape and its location deep down in the heart of the volcanic land will heighten your sense of calming contentment and fulfillment!
We have designed this space in the style of a Capilio, an old, traditional Greek tavern! After a day of exploring the island, lounge on the cushions & pillows and sip local wine to re-energize yourself! The wine, presented in an oak barrel, is homemade by an old islander from his grape vineyards in Oia. The wine is made and offered to you with love! Candles and a selection of music are also available to complement this romantic setting. We hope the cozy ambiance will add to your cave dwelling experience. Just enjoy!!!
