Description & Details of Greek Paradise in Oia Santorini, balcony, Free Car
Escape to a Greek paradise in this beautiful vacation house built into the ancient volcanic rock on the world famous Greek island of Santorini. Situated in the village of Ia (Oia), this house is the ideal accommodation for an enjoyable vacation of tranquility and recreation. It is the best choice for a romantic get away. The sculpted rock architecture of this lovely house is unique and impressive, and it has been beautifully decorated with inspiration and care by its owner, Maria Economou, a Greek sculptor and painter.

A guidebook package is sent to you with a very informative guidebook and DVDs about Santorini + CDs with greek music.

A car for 4-5 people is provided during your staying in Santorini. A driver will come and pick you up from the port or airport and will drive you to Oia. When you leave the island he will take you back to the airport/port!

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. 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 is like a love nest, small but unique and idyllic, about 50 m2 in size. The master bedroom is separated from the rest of the house by a door and two windows.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.

Details like the mosaic tile in the bathroom and the beautifully painted walls make this house an incredible place to stay on the picturesque island of Santorini. The house, located on the cliff side of the Caldera, provides modern amenities along with traditional charm. The original structure of the house has been preserved with respect. Modern facilities have been added to satisfy guests' needs and aesthetics. The private terrace gives a breathtaking panoramic view of the Volcano, the surrounding islands, the traditional hillside settlement of Oia village and the deep blue Aegean sea, while providing a perfect place to dine, or simply relax and take in the beauty. Located in a quiet neighborhood just 100 meters from the center of the village and only 50 meters from the sunset viewing point, this delightful home is the perfect place for a romantic vacation.
You are welcome to use a nearby swimming pool, the Lioyerma, a nice Lounge Cafe Pool Bar, which is easily accessible in 5 minutes' walk.

You can take a boat trip around the volcano, explore an archaeological excavation of a 3000 year-old civilization, or perhaps visit some cultural museums. You can tour ancient Byzantine churches and charming wineries, or go trekking along the rim of the caldera and discover its traditional villages and stunning scenery. You can also ride on a donkey to the old port where you can go on an excursion to the volcano and swim in its hot springs. There is so much to do and this is the ideal place to enjoy doing it.

1) 11/03/09 Peggy Koontz , Pine City, NY
I had the quintessential Santorini experience when I stayed at Maria's cave home in Oia. My first look at view from the terrace of her home, all I could say was “AMAZING!” The house is perched on the face of the caldera and the view is beyond description. When you stand on the terrace and look out over the water and sky you will struggle to find new words to describe the color blue and immediately drink in the essence of Oia. Outside, Maria's home borrows the soft natural colors of the island. Inside the dark wood furniture looks perfect against the crisp white walls. The bathroom is a mosaic wonder. The dome shaped room's walls are totally covered with small squares and rectangles of every color and style of tile imaginable. It is truly a work of art. One of Maria's many special touches that personalize her home and make it so comfortable and inviting. I had the house all to myself and enjoyed every minute there. At Maria's suggestion I rented a car which allowed me to explore the island on my own schedule. Driving on the island was fun and exciting. I went to Kamari, Perissa, Vlichada and Red Beach, which was my favorite beach. I drove to the light house at the opposite end of the island and to the top of the mountain where the military base is. What a fantastic view of the entire island! And that little church at the top, just lovely. I wandered around Megalochori and shopped in Fira. I went to Vourvoulos and Kouloubo beaches also. But my absolute favorite place was Amoudi Bay. I went there several days to swim and have lunch. The people at Taverna Katina, the restaurant with the orange chairs, were wonderful. I also took the boat tour to Volcano Island and swam in the hot springs. In a word the vacation was PERFECT! My stay a Maria's home offered everything I was looking from the view and location. Her many helpful suggestions for places to see and things to do were spot on. Her assistance and follow up calls were greatly appreciated. She was a wonderful hostess. As I told my friends, “How can I ever explain the feeling, describe the view or share the experience? You'll just have to go see it for yourself. I dare you.”

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely Greek Paradise in Oia. We were able to find Island Photo easily from your photos and phoned instructions and we were escorted to the house by a very courteous young man. The view is probably the most spectacular feature of the house, but the furnishings and supplies with which you have stocked it made us feel very welcome, with all the comforts of home. It was very peaceful and quiet at the house, even though we were very close to the busy shopping streets above and the sunset viewing points. We enjoyed the assortment of CD's provided, especially the bouzouki music. The most spectacular view we had during our 4-day stay was a glorious sunrise which we enjoyed from the terrace. It did, indeed, seem like Paradise!

3) 09/27/09 Lora & Mike J. , Washington, DC, USA
Our family of 5 spent 4 days in August, 2009, in this beautiful apartment. Plenty of room, and plenty of charm! Breathtaking views and an absolutely perfect location. We found Oia to be the perfect mix of shopping and entertainment, yet peaceful at night. The proximity to viewing the Oia sunsets is quite spectacular, too!

4) 09/27/09 Douglas Hendricks , Salt Lake City, UT We absolutely loved our stay here. It was exactly the traditional Greek Island experience that we had hoped for. The home is on the cliff overlooking the caldera and has a breathtaking view from its private veranda. The interior is well furnished and beautifully decorated. It is located in the wonderfully quaint town of Oia, where great restaurants, shops, and gorgeous sunsets are just a few steps away. The owner (Maria) was the perfect host who did everything possible to ensure that our stay was pleasant. Everything about our visit far exceeded our expectations.

5) 08/06/09 Hugh and Dimitria , Sydney Australia We would both like to tell you we enjoyed staying in your apartment in Santorini. It is unique and beautifully decorated. All our needs were met and yes the stars were very beautiful to see. We would be recommending your apartment to any of our friends or family who wish to stay in Santorini. We spent 3 pleasant days in this apartment. The location is excellent with beautiful scenery, close to shops and restaurants, yet very quiet and peaceful. Being a 'cave house' the accommodation is both enchanting and comfortable

You can take a boat trip around the volcano, explore an archaeological excavation of a 3500 year-old civilization, or perhaps visit the cultural museums. You can tour ancient Byzantine churches and charming wineries, or go trekking along the rim of the caldera and discover its traditional villages and stunning scenery.

Oia ,the Village of the fascinating sunsets
----------------------------------------------------------
The traditional settlement of Oia is located on the northern top of the island (see Map), high on the cliff-top. Oia hosts the most magnificent view of Santorini and a picturesque road, with cliffs on one side and the sea on the other, leads to this attractive town. The old Castle overlooks the Caldera and visitors use to gather there to enjoy the idyllic sunset.
Directly below is the beach of Ammoudi and across the bay are the Burnt Islands. Ammoudi, accessible by car as well, is 214 steps below, and Armeni beach is 286 steps below. The architecture of Oia is typical Cycladic with houses dug deep into the volcanic soil, their whitewashed walls and blue domes sparkling in the sunlight. Oia today also hosts a cultural centre, a central art gallery and many other Greek art galleries. Many shops sell handicrafts, souvenir and jewelry. Oia is the ideal spot to enjoy a peaceful vacation surrounded by unique natural beauty.
Santorini is the island that is linked with the legend of the lost Atlantis.

Map of Santorini
----------------------------
It was at the middle of 16th century b.C. when the island faced a catastrophe. But cause of this tragedy it has this incomparable beauty.
Santorini lies at the south end of the prefecture of Cyclades islands in a distance of 130 miles from Piraeus and 70 nautical miles from Crete. It has a pleasant climate and rather cool summers due to northeast winds that blow through the region.
Santorini soil is fertile and despite the lack of water it produces (small quantities but exceptionally tasty) tomatoes, barley, cucumbers and yellow peas. Among the most prized products are also its unique variety of vines.
