Most villages of Santorini were located within the island in places naturally protected from pirates on hills or carved on side of small ravines.The house and village is located almost in the center of the island so access to many beaches and the capital city of Fira are all at 3 kms .

Property Description
Santorini Away from crowds – Cave house in a quiet village, near the beaches

Real Santorini is not anymore Fira and Oia. Discover villages of Santorini which are located within the island in places naturally protected from pirates on hills or carved on side of small ravines. One of the most characteristic of them is Vothonas.
Although most of houses are recently constructed, many cave houses of ancient times can be seen around on the sides of a ravine -ancient river waiting for reconstruction.
The village is inhabited mostly by locals working on vineyards and other tourist activities in other parts of the island.

The main advantage of this village is that is located almost in the center of the island so access to many beaches, to Airport, to boats main port, and the capital city of Fira are all at distances of 3-5 kms.
The best point is that you have best holidays far from tourist crowds, plus you have the possibility for exciting walks in the deep country, visiting very old trails , ancient churches, paths with incredible view.
From the very top of the village you can see around and both sides of sea around the island. One side of the wild caldera, the other side to smooth landscape with fields and beaches.

My house (carved and builded on the rock, house of 300 years of age ) consists of two large cave rooms linked together through a small cave dome corridor.
Furniture is simple as much as possible, beds and sofa beds are stone made since the entire island there is no timber trail. The living room is a large vaulted space is on one side a corner sitting area with large cushions, able to accommodate many persons.
Years of meditation and wonderful Parties on the terrace , has filled this home with vibration of sweetness and love .
From the terrace you got an unlimited view to vineyards and far end at the Sea.
Capacity : 4-5 persons.
Beds: 1double bed in each bedroom, and 2 sofa beds in the living room.
Kitchen: full kitchen (with electric oven -fridge-boiler-coffee maker-toaster ), + Full bathroom washing machine.

Sofia’s place was absolutely beautiful and so was Sofia herself. She was so sweet and very helpful, especially with restaurants/beaches/towns to check out in the area. The house was in the center of the island so it was quick to travel to the towns. Her space was also very unique because it was built into a cave. There was also a spacious private terrace with the view of the ocean. I highly recommend on staying here!

Sofia was very welcoming and provided us with fantastic hospitality. Sofia gave us tips on where to travel to avoid mass tourists and where the locals hang out. Sofia’s house was amazing. The house stayed cool during the middle of the day where it was at its hottest. It was only a couple minutes walk into the local village. Overall, it was an amazing stay.

Sofia’s place is magnificent! It was quiet and a perfect place to explore the island. Sofia was very kind and hospitable. She had great recommendations for fun places to go and helped us arrange a great deal on a rental car. The house was beautiful, very clean and spacious with a terrific view and deck. Highly recommend!

Sophia’s place was even more beautiful in real life! From her crisp white linen and comfy beds, to her interesting art works and trinkets. Sophia’s place was both comfortable and thoughtfully styled. Located in the beautiful village of Vothonas, Sophia’s place was conveniently located to the beaches, the main villages, and the roads less travelled. Getting around the island was easy as Sophia arranged a hire car for us. After visiting the main towns of Fira and Oia we were relieved to be able to get away from the crowds and enjoy the authentic Santorini experience Sophia’s place has to offer.
