About Toula Vamvakousis

Hello. I'm Christopher and I live in Santorini since 1992. I am the owner of Ecoxenia Studios.

If you will come to my island, view that you have a friend here. We can drink a glass of wine together and show you the alternative way to discover the secrets of the island.

Traditional vineyard, winemaking, fishing, volcanology, geology, architecture, ecology, belongs to my interests and we could share them together.

And as I’m professor of Physics we could talk about the essence of things hidden under the surface…..

Toula Vamvakousis purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Toula Vamvakousis chose Greece

The fact that you are in the pure nature outside from the touristic chaos and at the same time very close to the world's famous Oia's village and near to the ocean, makes Ecoxenia a unique and very attractive place to everybody.

What makes this apartment unique

The amazing view of the sea, drinking your first coffe of the day, the sunset with a glass of wine in the balcony, the feeling of the garden and the positive energy of the place, offer those unique benefits to Ecoxenia's guests.

Charmants petits locatifs très agréables

  • 5 of 5

Les appartements sont très propres et bien agencés tout comme la propriété qui est bien entretenue et invite a profiter d'un moment de calme. La vue sur le couché de soleil depuis les balcons ou le jaccuzi est très sympa. Nous avons bien aimé la proximité avec le village de Oia pour les ballades du soir.

Christopher est toujours disponible pour donner ses conseils et aider en cas de besoin (et il parle un français parfait).

Bref, un point de chute que nous conseillons sans hésiter.

Ecoxenia studios are located in Santorini one km (half a mile) from the village of Oia, among the vineyards above the coast (100m).

From your private balcony you can enjoy the ocean view, Oia's famous sunset and the beauty of Ios, Sikinos and Folegardros islands in its fading line.

You can easily reach down the two beaches, Paradissos and Coloumbos and enjoy the tasty Mediterranean cuisine from the traditional tavernas for the area.

Oia Santorini: Oia, pronounced ‘Ia’, is the most famous of all villages of Santorini. It is known throughout the world for its quiet life and fantastic sunset, and is certainly the most beautiful and picturesque village of Santorini.

The village is also situated on top of an impressive cliff and offers a spectacular view over the volcano of Palia and Nea Kameni and the island of Thirassia.

Oia is situated on the north of the island, 11 km away from Fira.

It is a traditional village with charming houses in narrow streets, blue domed churches, and sun-bathed verandas. Its streets have plenty of tourist shops, taverns, cafés, and other shops.

Oia has several cultural attractions like the Maritime Museum which houses a small library, items from the maritime life of the area, and the vestiges of a Venetian fortress.

Many artists fell in love with the area and settled there. For that reason, the village of Oia has many art galleries.

Oia also has a small port, Ammoudi, which can be reached by a set of 300 steps leading down. There, small boats can take you opposite, to the island of Thirassia. The beach of Armenis is also located there. Taverns in Oia offer visitors tasty meals of fresh fish.

Baxedes beach: 2 klm far from Oia and 700m from Ecoxenia at the North-east, it is ideal for those liking to avoid big crowds. Sandy with black sand and shade.
