ENJOY OUR 'LYDIA' LUXURIOUS CAVE HOUSE!
PERFECT FOR HONEYMOONERS, YOUR FAMILY OR GROUP OF FRIENDS!
“LYDIA” house, 93 m2, is in the amazing village of Oia, among the last row of houses on the cliff.
It used to be an old bioclimatic cave-house which Emmanouil Vasilakis, architect and owner, renovated in 2010, using high quality materials combined with the traditional methods of Santorini’s technicians. The outcome is obviously a dream house, completely adapted to the unique scenery of Santorini island, with excellent minimal aesthetic and fully functional interior spaces.
Sitting on the small front yard or on the terrace above, there’s an amazing, unobstructed, panoramic view towards the traditional village of Oia, the Caldera (the cliffs of the volcano), the Aegean sea and the other cliff-edge villages. Those two outdoor private spaces are connected with a traditional stairway.
PERFECT LOCATION FOR YOUR HOLIDAY!
The terrace of 'LYDIA' is adjacent to the main pedestrian path (with shops, restaurants, market, galleries) on the back side of “Lydia” house, which gives you the privacy that you need but also the easy accessibility to the central square (3 min walk) where you can find bus and taxi terminal. You can also take a walk at the “Goulas” area (1 min walk), which is famous for Oia’s sunset view.
The living room with the built sitting area, that can also be used as a bed, and a wooden monasterial dining table, is a comfortable and sunny space with an amazing view. A cavity shaped in the colored wall accommodates the television set. The white wooden ceiling is actually a cozy loft bedroom shaped in the dome (with a Japanese futon bed and a beautiful view to the sea), reached through a wooden stair next to the built sitting area.
An arched doorway, that divides the living room from the rest of the house, leads you to a small, heated, shallow pool with a built sofa bed, which is one of the most relaxing spots of “Lydia” house. Next to the pool, simplicity and extreme elegance characterize the elevated open space master bedroom. A cavity in the wall, on one side of the built bed, is used as a walking closet and on the other side, a big cave with three cavities, form a luxurious bathroom consisted of a walk-in rain shower with white pebles on the floor, a separated toilette and a marble basin, taken from an old Turkish Hamam. Finally, considering the issue of privacy, a portable folding screen can be used to block the visual contact with the rest of the house, when needed.
Between the living room and the master bedroom, on the right side, there’s a fully equipped kitchen, a secondary bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, a dressing room and an engine room for the pool. On the left side, a cavity leads you to a stairway, descending to the old systern at a lower level, which is now used as a bedroom with two single beds.
The house is designed as an open space so that you can enjoy the astonishing view almost from every corner but also to create a visual contact between the two main areas of the interior. The lights placed on the white and colored dome shaped walls as well as the lights in the pool and the floor cavities, create a unique atmosphere.
Visiting “Lydia” house, where every little detail has been handled with great taste and attention, you will experience a familiar warmth and serenity that will make you feel like home.
