Location description from owner

The South Aegean region

A place blessed by God and nature and yet so troubled by fate. Magnificent and wild, Santorini is unique throughout the world for its stunning natural beauty, result of the volcanic eruption of the 16th century BC. A place like a chest of rock on which the whitewashed villages hang like acrobats on the edge of the cliffs and on the other side lay beautiful black volcanic beaches and crystal clear deep waters. Apart from its incomparable beauty, the island offers relaxing moments in authentic Cycladic environment, exceptional gastronomic choices, rich nightlife and a unique study the ancient culture that has a history of over 3,500 years.

Oia

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 with 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.Here you will meet only locals.The Finikia Village still creates the feeling of the good old Greece of the mid 20th century. The people here leave their houses doors open all day and night, are welcoming everyone who visits their area with warmth and it is so peaceful and tranquil, that during the night you hear only the wind and nothing else. Its spacious terraces make you feel like you fly over the Aegean Sea. On a good visibility day, you can see at least 10 other islands on the horizon. it is the balcony of the Aegean Sea.On the same time it is located only 5 minutes walking distance from the heart of Oia, totally avoiding the massive crowds of tourists.It is a place blessed by god and nature.

“Stunning views and peaceful stay”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2014

My friend and I stayed in Fava for five nights - we were looking for a relaxing stay after the craziness of Ios and we were not disappointed. A beautiful place with gorgeous views out to the town and sea. A great place to experience the magnificent Oia - allowing you to then escape to your own paradise. Thank you for a perfect ending to the Greek islands.

“Santorini at its best!”

Reviewed 3 Nov 2013

This was our second visit to Santorini, the 1st being 30 years ago. We found the Aeolos Suite to be an excellent base for us to explore the island from. It is situated at the heart of a traditional Greek village and we loved listening and watching the every day life of the locals, although we cannot speak Greek it was not difficult to guess what the village chat was about. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the terrace taking in the last sun of the day, and listening to the silence of the village. The suite is well presented, clean and well maintained. It is a 20 minute walk into Oia, a walk we enjoyed, and was far enough from Oia to be away from the bustle of this main tourist attraction. The owners were very welcoming and gave good advice on the best sites and places to dine. We hope it wont be 30 years before we visit again and we certainly wouldn't hesitate on returning to the Aeolos suite!!!!!!

“Luogo indimenticabile, domatia "vera" in borgo antico, accoglienza e attenzione di Antonis speciali”

Reviewed 20 Sep 2013

La domatia e' ricavata in uno dei vecchi edifici del villaggio di Finikia di origini medievali. Completamente ristrutturata di un bianco accecante come tutto il villaggio, si raggiunge solo a piedi in 6-7 minuti. Per questo e' tranquiliissima e adatta a chi cerca pace e un luogo verace. L'accoglienza calda di Antonis e della sua compagna ci hanno permesso di conoscere tanti dettagli di Santorini e di passare momenti molto piacevoli insieme. Anche i nostri bimbi si sono trovati benissimo, in una casa con tetti bassi, tante scalette ed angolini particolari, un posto per inventare fiabe.

“A True Island Experience”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2013

What a magical week we spent on Santorini in large part because of our stay at Fava Residence in the small village of Finikia a 10 minute walk from the fabled sunset town of Oia. Owners Antonis and Dora Gavalas epitomize Greek hospitality. Their welcome ways and love of the island provide a memorable introduction for all there is to see of Santorini. For an authentic village experience within walking distance to Oia Fava Residence is the place to stay.

“Authentic Santorini gem!”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2013

What a lovely place to stay! Antonis is a fantastic host. We really could not have asked for a better introduction to Santorini. He organised a minibus to collect us from the port and on arrival he sat down with us to give a tailor-made guide to the island that was invaluable. Also waiting in the fridge was some delicious local wine. The place is just as it appears in the photos - an authentic traditional house - with stunning views over the north coast of Santorini. Very clean and comfortable with a spectacular rooftop that wraps all around the building. Sunset and sunrise from this spot are magnificent! The location is terrific for those of you that want to be just outside of the hustle and bustle without feeling like you're missing out on the action. Finikia has some great restaurants to explore but if you feel like even more selection, the beautiful town of Oia is just a short walk away. It was an awesome experience and we can't recommend this place highly enough! We'll definitely be back! - Toby, Cas & Dave (from Australia)
