Real Santorini, Cave House – far from the crowds

Family-friendly holiday home in Santorini
Real Santorini is not Fira and Oia. The main villages of Santorini are at the center of the island in places naturally protected against pirates on the hills or carved on the side of small gullies.
One of the most characteristic of them is Vothonas. Although most homes are built recently, many cave houses of antiquity can be seen around the sides of a ravine river -Ancient waiting for reconstruction. My house (carved and builded on the rock, house of 500 years of age ) consists of two large cave rooms linked together through a small cave dome corridor.
Furniture is simple as much as possible, beds and sofa beds are stone made with double mattress as is shown in MYHOUSETORENT owners association.
The main advantage of this village is that it is almost in the center of the island so that access to many beaches, the airport, the boats of the commercial port, the capital of Fira are at distances of 3 -5 kms.
You have the best vacation away from the tourist crowds, plus you can go rambling in the deep country, visiting the old paths, old churches, roads with incredible views. From the top of the village you can see around both sides of the sea around the island. One side of the caldera wild, across the landscape with fields and beaches.
I can arrange a transfer by agency that brings you from the port / airport to the house!
I can advise you rent a car by local agency and cheap.
Air-conditioned accommodation at this holiday home offers coffee/tea makers and a hairdryer. Rooms open to patios. This accommodation is furnished with dining tables and kitchen islands. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, kitchenware and utensils and dishwashers. Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit.

5/5 Excellent

A recommander
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette maison très spacieuse et très confortable à l’abri de la foule tout en étant très centrale. Grâce aux précieux conseils de Sofia nous avons pu savourer les meilleurs restaurants de l’île et nous baigner dans des plages plus isolées. A recommander absolument si vous souhaitez louer une maison à Santorin .

5/5 Excellent

Très agréable maison caverne sur Santorin
Sofia est une très bonne hôtesse. Très disponible, elle nous a fait partager ses adresses de restos sur Santorin, en dehors des sentiers battus. Toutes les adresses qu'elle nous a données étaient excellentes. Nous recommandons volontiers ce gîte, qui est très agréable, au calme absolu et sur le côté moins touristique de l'île, même si tout est à 10 minutes en voiture.

5/5 Excellent

Très bon séjour, rien a dire ou plutôt si, du bon.
Les images ne donnent pas un aperçu fidèle de la location, s'est encore plus beau en vrai. La liste des équipements est bien au delà d'une location saisonnière standard, il y a même un petit PC portable couplé à un ensemble d'enceintes de qualité avec internet à disposition... Sofia, notre hôtesse, est adorable et pleine de bons conseils, elle n'hésite pas à partager ses bonnes adresses et a faire les réservations pour ceux qui doutent de leur niveau d'Anglais. Vothonas est une petite commune bien située, prés des commerces, dans un endroit qui a gardé son charme, un véhicule me parait par contre indispensable pour pleinement profiter de l'ile, là aussi Sofia n'hésitera pas à partager son carnet d'adresses. Les plus pointilleux trouveront peut être à se plaindre du chant des coqs peut être, où d'autres bruits naturels (un âne qui passe, un chat ou un chien qui se manifeste ou dieu sait quoi...), mais mille diables, on y est en vacances et bien dépaysés !!!! Nous reviendrons très certainement et partagerons cette adresse. The images do not give a faithful overview of the rent, is even more beautiful in reality. The list of equipments is far beyond a standard vacation rental, there is even a small PC coupled to a set of quality speakers, with internet... Sofia, our hostess, is adorable and full of good advice, she not hesitate to share her good places and also make reservations for those who doubt about their English level. Vothonas is a small well placed municipality, meadows of the businesses, it kept its charm, a vehicle seems essential to take advantage completely of the island, and also Sofia will not hesitate to share its address book. The most fastidious will always find to complain, about the singing of cocks maybe or other natural noises, so it's important to remind that we are on holidays and enjoy!!!! We'll return very certainly and sure, we'll share this address.

Nous avons adoré notre séjour
Vous allez aimer cette (cave house) elle a été rénovée avec beaucoup d’amour et d’attention. La maison est grande et bien décorée, les lits sont hyper confortables et la terrasse est bien aménagée. Si vous avez envie de tranquillité, la localisation est parfaite. Sofia a su nous transmettre sa passion pour l’Ile de Santorin. Elle nous a donnée plusieurs adresses de restaurants, plusieurs belles plages et de magnifiques villages à visiter. Merci beaucoup Sofia Marie-Claude
