Apartment | 1 bedrooms | sleeps 3
Sophia's Collection Apartment is nestled among the lovely traditional houses in the charming historical settlement of Finikia in Oia. The apartment's location high above the settlement offers wide sweeping sea views from the large terrace.
Here is a rare opportunity to live in a Santorini cave house which has been entirely carved into the soft stone of the island's natural rock walls. The apartment was created by carefully renovating an old cave house to add modern amenities without losing its unique character. The real delight is the tastefully eclectic antiques, artwork and artifacts that have been collected during the owner's lifetime of world travels. Here you can experience the history and charm of traditional Santorini surrounded by a “living gallery”.
The airy interiors are bright and cheerful with white curving walls and high domed ceilings. Large arched openings flow from room to room. All around are the little touches that make this villa extraordinary: Moroccan lamps mingle with Indian woodwork, Persian and traditional Greek elements.
You will feel right at home in the large living room with a traditional sleeper sofa and a varied collection of books and photographs. Gallery style artwork is displayed next to a beautiful antique writing desk in the small study near the living room. A second, private study adjacent to the Living Room offers another quiet space.
The large bedroom features an antique iron four poster bed. A second traditional sleeper sofa near the bedroom can also accommodate one person.
You will be free to prepare meals in the fully equipped self-catering kitchen. The tiled bath is modern with a traditional built-in shower.
A peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of neighboring Oia, this is the place to kick up your feet and breathe in the relaxing tranquility of Santorini village life. While the mad rush of tourists retreats from Oia's “famous sunset” en masse, you will be privileged to linger over every last color of the day from your own private perch.
Sophia's Collection is perfect for a couple or small family seeking a cozy and private summer retreat in a truly unique and artistic environment in one of Santorini's most special authentic traditional villages.
The settlement of Finikia is a hidden gem, peacefully sheltered from the jam of tourists just minutes away in nearby Oia. Cave houses and elegant churches dot the network of footpaths tucked below the natural protective cliff wall. A feast for the senses, bright blue doors and cascading flowers intermingle among the whitewash walls. Walking these quiet footpaths, one can almost hear whispers of the village's rich history of bustling naval trade, pirate attacks and old-time wine production. The village remains even today a vibrant neighborhood, with traditional tavernas and restaurants and artisan shops.
