The property is ideal for relaxing holidays for serenity-seekers and peaceful memorable moments, in one of the most popular holiday destinations in the world. It combines the unique quietness of an isolated Greek village, only a few minutes drive from the buzz of the well-known Santorinian towns that are full of life and energy.

Since it is up in the village, a private transport mean is necessary, either a vehicle or a motorcycle.
In less than 10-minute walking, you may find one of Santorini's famous steak house restaurant "KRITIKOS" and the Koutsogiannopoulos winery in another 5-minute walk.
A ten-minute drive will take you either to a family-oriented beach "Monolithos" or driving to the opposite side the famous "Kamari" beach with black sand and many restaurants, beach front bars and tourist shops.

Reviews of this property
Alexandra's cave house on the stunning island of Santorini offers a unique opportunity to stay in one of the island's cave houses. This old part of Vothonas is a small tucked-away village where each house is carved into the petrified volcanic ash layer. You feel like you've stepped back centuries as you walk up its steep little stepped alleys. The house itself though has been modernised to a good standard with a particularly beautiful and well-appointed kitchen. The views from its two terraces (one at the front door and a surprising upper one above the house itself) are wonderful. I would say a car is necessary here as the house is a little removed from the bustle of the towns and the beaches but that provides a tranquil haven - and cars are very easy to hire, with the nearest beach and main towns less than a 10 minute drive away. All in all a great experience!
Alexandra took care of us to 100%. It was no problems to find the house nighttime with her instructions. The house was wonderful with everything you need. We liked to live in a traditional village. We rented a car from a company that Alexandra recommended and everything went smoothly. We visited almost every place on the island during our week there. It's easiest to see other places on the island if you have a car available when living in Vothonas village.
I really want to recommend Alexandra as host and her beautiful cavehouse!
We have been staying for 3 nights at Alexandras lovely Cave-house in Vothonas on Santorini. A fully equipped house, at a very quiet locality. So much space, and so beautiful furnished with everything one could ask for. We felt at home the minute we arrived. Alexandra and her assistant Anna made sure we had the best experience staying here.
Some would say, that the locality is a bit away from everything, but they are wrong. A little walk down the hill, you are at the road between Fira and Kamari. The local bus can get you to town in less than 15 minutes, and if you drive by car, you will be able to get around the island easily. Vothonas is almost in the middle of Santorini. We visited some nice places in the neighborhood – the Wine Museum, Kritikos Tavern, and the Church of Vothonas Village. With your own yard and sun-roof, you can relaxe and enjoy the moods of nature, cook your dinner on the barbeque, or take a nice walk in the village. This place is the ideal choise for couples, who likes an exclusive and authentic environment, combined with the great nature of Santorini.
