Maria Oikonomou: 'This cave villa was constructed about 1000 years ago in the traditional manner of the people of Santorini at this time. They were dug into the volcanic rock so as to be cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This is bioclimatic achitecture. I have artistically decorated it and also updated the villa to protect against humidity. It sleeps 4-5 people comfortably by using the roll out bed at night. The panoramic views from the patio are breathtaking! Enjoy lying on the mattress on the bench in the afternoon and evening and viewing the lights of the other cities on the top edge of the Caldera. In the evening gaze at the sparkling stars and moon in the dark sky. The house, located in the old part of Oia, is like a love nest, small but unique and idyllic, about 60 m2 in size. Every single hour of the day and night is magnificent from the romantic veranda of my little villa! I welcome you to my villa and the beautiful island of Santorini'.
