About Antonis Gavalas
I am an Architect Engineer A.U.TH. and Environmental Consultant MA Architectural Association London, based in Athens and Santorini. Fava Residence is the vacation house i spent all my summers since i was born. A place that brings me back memories of the childhood years. It is a village where people still sleep with their doors open. An island blessed by God and damaged by nature. I will be happy to share this magic and breathtaking place with the prospect visitors.

Absolutely brilliant from the moment we got there till the end,
Lovely place to stay 20 minute walk to Oia which is stunning, got picked up from the airport to FAVA met by the bellboy with a 10 minute walk to the property through narrow streets & checked in by Thomas showed to the house which was very nice with a jacuzzi on the balcony with fantastic views, we stayed for 2 weeks, breakfast delivered every day at the time you want, house cleaned every day, 3 restaurants within 200 metres, wherever you go no where is cheap but the scenery makes up for that. Well worth it.
Very lovely. Very authentic with a beautiful courtyard and nice view of the north of the island
I would highly recommend this place!! The little cave rooms are so quaint. Everything was so nice! I love that breakfast was brought to your room. The town of Ía is just a short 10 minute walk. Thomas was very accommodating and is good at his job. The hot tubs are also a nice touch (when they’re working ;) ) this is a must if you like staying a little off the beaten path.
We would like to tell you that you were excellent guests and elegant people and you treated the house with great respect. We are looking forward to accommodate you again in the future.
Keep the warmth of Fava and Santorini in your hearts!
Fantastic, beautiful stay on the best part of Santorini! Hospitality was above and beyond.
Very good location, and absolutely stunning property!
The property location was perfect! It was 20 minutes walk to Oia. The property itself is absolutely stunning, we enjoyed the house and the view from it alot. The jacuzzi was cherry on top. Well worth the money!

Bonne impression, bien situé près du centre village d’Oia.
During the 18th and 19th century, the village of Oia experienced the prosperity of the naval merchandise. In Finikia lived the farmers who worked in the valley and vineyards, but also the captains of Oia had their summer homes and canavas. In the early 20th century there were over 150 canavas that were left off after the war and the devastating earthquake of 1956 brought the village to abandon. Since the mid 1970's slowly and with patience, new residents began to return and to reconstruct the old houses on permanent or holiday homes. Today, Finikia is a small, well-preserved traditional village now united with Oia within just 10 minutes walking distance. You can stay and experience the feeling of tranquility and authenticity, visiting the beautiful beaches and vineyards in the vicinity of the village.
