Property description

Welcome home to Fava!
An unforgettable experience. Our goal is to make you feel that Fava is your own home and Santorini, your island.
The Fava Eco-Residences are housed in a group of splendid and unique captain houses of the mid 19th century, located at the highest point of the traditional village of Finikia. The architects and owners of the property started the rebuilt in the 1980’s with love and devotion and they transformed the properties into a spacious and modern, though with respect to the original traditional form, complex of summer houses. Today, the villas offer their hospitality in individual fully furnished houses of various size and aesthetics. They offer a sense of 19th century history, combined and harmonized with modern amenities and serviced by 24/7 concierge staff, located in the heart of the most picturesque and virgin from the tourist development village of the island. Fava is just a stone's throw from the magnificent Oia and away from the crowds and noise. During the reconstruction there were used methods following the bioclimatic sustainable vernacular architecture and materials which are eco-friendly with low embodied energy. All houses have wonderful views over the village, the famous sunset of the island and the Aegean Sea with the close by Ios, Sikinos and Folegandros islands on the horizon.

All houses have daily maid cleaning service and change of linen and towels every two days.
Every morning, a traditional basket with local organic delicacies such as rusks, homemade grape or fig marmelade, thyme honey, butter, free range eggs, Santorinian tomatoes, cheese from Cyclades and a seasonal fruit will be delivered to your door.

Gaia Suite is a traditional luxurious and majestic old style cave-type individual apartment of 75 m2 fitted with all the modern amenities, with 5 meter high vaulted ceilings. The apartment can accommodate up to 4 people in a large unified Canava hall, it has one double bed, one single bed and a sofa bed as well as a spacious separate autonomous bathroom with shower, a comfortable fully equipped kitchen and access to a totally breathtaking yard with 180 degrees Sea and Sunset View. The house is furnished with 19th century wooden antiques and paintings depicting the history of the island. The stone fireplace, the large outdoor vine and the grape squeezing area where the previous century’s occupants used to prepare the wine is kept as it originally was. The internal temperature varies from 21 to 23 Degrees Celsius throughout the summer period due to the bioclimatic vernacular construction of the residence. In the house you will also find Air-conditioning, 24-7 Wi-Fi access, plasma satelite TV, hair dryer, iron and ironing board, CD player with Classical Music CD's and multilingual Books.

Car: Not Necessary

The Finikia Village still creates the feeling of the good old Greece of the mid 20th century. The people here leave their houses doors open all day and night, are welcoming everyone who visits their area with warmth and it is so peaceful and tranquil, that during the night you hear only the wind and nothing else. Its spacious terraces make you feel like you fly over the Aegean Sea. On a good visibility day, you can see at least 10 other islands on the horizon. it is the balcony of the Aegean Sea.

On the same time it is located only 5 minutes walking distance from the heart of Oia, totally avoiding the massive crowds of tourists.

It is a place blessed by god and nature.
