Welcome home to Fava!

An unforgettable experience. Our goal is to make you feel that Fava is your own home and Santorini, your island.

The Fava Eco-Residences are housed in a group of splendid and unique captain houses of the mid 19th century, located at the highest point of the traditional village of Finikia. The architects and owners of the property started the rebuilt in the 1980’s with love and devotion and they transformed the properties into a spacious and modern, though with respect to the original traditional form, complex of summer houses. Today, the villas offer their hospitality in individual fully furnished houses of various size and aesthetics. They offer a sense of 19th century history, combined and harmonized with modern amenities and serviced by 24/7 concierge staff, located in the heart of the most picturesque and virgin from the tourist development village of the island. Fava is just a stone's throw from the magnificent Oia and away from the crowds and noise. During the reconstruction there were used methods following the bioclimatic sustainable vernacular architecture and materials which are eco-friendly with low embodied energy. All houses have wonderful views over the village, the famous sunset of the island and the Aegean Sea with the close by Ios, Sikinos and Folegandros islands on the horizon.

All houses have daily maid cleaning service and change of linen and towels every two days.

Every morning, a traditional basket with local organic delicacies such as rusks, homemade grape or fig marmelade, thyme honey, butter, free range eggs, Santorinian tomatoes, cheese from Cyclades and a seasonal fruit will be delivered to your door.

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.

Très beau mais pas très pratique, pas vraiment équipé pour 4 personnes. Oia est à 15 min à pieds.Le parking est loin de la résidence, cette location est déconseillée aux personnes ayant des difficultés à se déplacer.Le responsable Mr Gregoris est charmant et toujours de très bon conseil.

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.
