Property description

Our 1868 Wine production house now available as a Luxury Canava Villa - A traditional Santorinian residence, newly restored to make one of the most authentic and sought after residences currently available, licenced by the Greek National Tourism Organisation with an award that marks the luxury standard in rental accommodation. Please contact us for more details on our exact location. We have uninterrupted breathtaking views to the island caldera and its volcano, large outdoor private pool and Jacuzzi, tranquility and spacious rooms with high vaulted ceiling carved in the volcanic rock make this villa an amazing living abode and a unique find in Oia. It is ideally situated at a high vantage point at the top of the Oia cliff and a couple of steps from the marble paved pedestrian street. This is the favored promenade crossing the traditional Oia settlement and branching out to picturesque cobblestone alleys expanding down the multilayer caldera cliff and reach the tip of the island to the castle ruins and to one of the most famous sunsets in the world.


Grand Canava is offered as an entire residence only and it has been built to comfortably accommodate 12 people. There is a possibility to sleep up to 14 guests as well as cater for baby cots.

Pool temperature and island weather conditions are ideal for swimming from late April until early October.

West canava section: It can be best described as a villa with three distinct living areas that we refer to as east, west and main canava, all with separate courtyard entrances for better privacy and with autonomy in terms of amenities. It is also possible to add two fold out beds and we can also provide a baby crib if needed.

The west canava area can accommodate up to 2 persons in a very specious vaulted bedroom with very comfortable queen size iron bed, a sitting area with antique wooden table for two, fully equipped kitchen and a cave style en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There is a table and summer umbrella in the courtyard offering lounging with magnificent view of the pool and volcano caldera.

East canava section : The east canava area can accommodate up to 4 persons and comprises two vaulted bedrooms, a sitting room and kitchen with view to the pool and the island caldera.

The master bedroom is at the back carved into the rock with a romantic and comfortable queen size platform canopy bed, secluded as a separate living area with its own indoor windows and door, in a fashion typical of traditional santorinian houses. With all windows open the bedroom can enjoy light from the outside and a view into the blue while closing the inner windows and door provides maximum privacy.

The second bedroom is situated at the front end and has a double iron bed that gives direct view to the pool and clear blue sky just from the edge of its pillows. Both rooms have access to a spacious sitting room with antique wooden table for four and a fully equipped kitchen and they share a large cave style bathroom with bathtub and shower. There is a table and summer umbrella in the courtyard as well as loungers for sunbathing by the pool.

Main canava section : The main canava area can accommodate up to 6 persons in 3 separate bedrooms and is built in two levels in the middle of the east and west sides of the original Canava.

A very spacious dining room shed with ample natural light welcomes our guests with its large monastery style table which can comfortably sit a party of 12. The kitchen is carved in the rock, at the far end of the room and is designed as a separate area with easy access to the dining premises.

Two vaulted ceiling bedrooms can be found on the ground level, each separate with its own en-suite bathroom. One is especially large room at the further back end carved deep into the volcanic rock, with a comfortable platform king size bed, dressing area with mirror and a large cave style bathroom with bathtub and shower.

The second bedroom is a comparatively smaller yet spacious and inviting room, with comfortable double iron bed, cozily snug under its own dome. This room has its own en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower.

The villa is perched on the rock cliff of Oia, 300 meters above sea level with unparalleled views of the volcano, deep blue sea and the island of Santorini itself. It is situated next to the famous hotel Katikies in the finest neighborhood of Oia. Wake up each day in a setting of unique physical beauty and enjoy a quiet stay in surroundings retaining a true traditional architecture and Cycladic atmosphere of the old times. Oia retains the strictest laws about architecture and even electric wires are mandated to be underground while cars is only allowed in the outskirts. You can stay in all day and lounge by the pool or take a walk to the heart of Oia stroll by the charming little shops, cafes, artist workshops, village bakery and sweet shops. When you reach the tip of Oia you can stay and be charmed by the beautiful sunset by the castle ruins or if you feel restless continue 220 steps down the cobblestone route to Ammoudi fishing village for a swim and fresh fish.

Due to the traditional nature of the settlement, our villa address only recently got assigned with a street name. So, we are situated on Nikolaou Nomikou street of Oia!
