Beschreibung

Die Unterkunft

This meticulously renovated cave house in the heart of world famous Oia has all one can wish for: Stunning, expansive views inside and out; bright, airy rooms and modern amenities seamlessly blended with the carefully preserved details of an authentic Santorini cave house. The feeling here is open as the sky and layered and deep as the caldera. No surrounding buildings impede the light and air around, and the breathtaking views are an endless feast for the eyes in every direction.

The simplicity of the newly renovated home highlights the restored historical details of the original cave house. New plaster covers the original forms of the curving walls, vaulted ceilings and deep archways that were carved by hand years ago from the caldera cliffs. The interior palette of soothing neutrals gracefully complements the many views of nature’s own palette of brilliant blue and earthy ochre and deep reds. Bright blue wood shutters finish original interior and exterior windows. These charming uniquely Santorini elements are combined with traditional Cycladic style furnishings and tastefully selected antiques and art. The result is an atmosphere of warmth, charm and island comfort.
The house features two exterior entrances from a large terrace. Three bedrooms, two baths, and two lounge/living areas provide ample space for a vacationing family to spread out in two “suites”. All of the bedrooms are elegantly outfitted with warm antiques and comfortable furnishings. The full size modern kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to feel right at home: New traditional style cabinetry, modern appliances and a show-stopping volcano view. The baths are modern and naturally beautiful: graceful hand-formed plaster walls form the generous walk-in showers, petite windows frame glimpses of the glittering bright blue sea and sky-little reminders of the magic of Santorini.

The central combined living and dining room is bright and airy, with a traditional wooden sofa and beautiful carved wood dining table. From here one reaches the first double bedroom, connected to the living room with a wall of traditional shuttered interior windows and doors-a detail that was not to be lost from the renovation of the original home. This bedroom has air conditioning. One of two bathrooms is also accessed from this living room, at the opposite side.

From the living/dining room a deep vaulted archway leads to the second “suite” of rooms: a second fully furnished lounge, with access to two connected bedrooms. One playfully charming bedroom with two built-in single beds is connected to the lounge. Further in, a second large bedroom has a built-in double bed romantically nestled beneath arched niches and a vaulted ceiling.

The two terraces are a marvel unto themselves: the lower level terrace wraps the house in two directions-a special condition in Santorini, offering views of boundless variety: sea, sky, volcanoes and cliff-side villages. From here one can see the earthen colors of eroded cliffs, the whitewashed village houses climbing up the caldera walls punctuated with cascading fuschia bougainvillea flowers, the infinite shimmering sea and sky dotted with the nearby volcanic islands of Thirassia and Nea Kamini.

The views from the upper terrace are truly infinite-a special vantage point for taking in the brilliant, ever-changing colors of sunset, until twilight quietly blankets the village and the twinkling lights of Oia emerge with the stars above. A large Jacuzzi installed here, Rejuvenation for the mind, body and soul: sitting at the island’s highest point, soaking in the sights of Oia day or night, living for each moment in the magic of Santorini.
Skala is perfect for a Santorini paradise getaway for a family of six guests or for two couples traveling together, who are seeking a unique, private home with an authentic caldera experience in Oia. (Two additional children can also be accommodated with the large sofas.)

Weitere wichtige Infos

Tidbits about the house and area history:

Skala is the result of the careful renovation of a very important historical Santorini house style, commonly called “cave houses”. These houses are completely unique to the island. Many examples have been preserved and renovated in Oia.

Most early residents of Santorini worked in sea trading and exports. In order to be close to their occupation and also to perceive potentially unfriendly ship invasions, they chose to live on the edge of the caldera cliffs. Wealthy ship captains built mansions that can still be seen in Oia today. Ship hands and sailors built “hyposkafa” or “cave houses”, which were carved into the soft pumice stone of the cliff-sides.

These cave houses were easier to build, and protected the occupants from the harsh winter winds and weather. The natural insulation of the earthen walls of the space also regulated the interior temperature year-round, keeping them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Today, this natural insulation continues to produce an advantage for the villa, maintaining a constantly cool interior environment, even on the hottest summer days.

The renovation of Skala preserved the original organic shapes of the smooth walls and vaulted ceilings that were part of the original house. The creative use of the original features is evident throughout the house.

The view and the hot tub on this property is everything. If you are looking for a secluded property this is not the one for you, however this did not bother us. You can sit in the hot tub and watch tourists above you snapping pictures of the amazing view.

Christos was very easy to communicate with before and throughout our stay. The location was superb and the view was outstanding. The villa was exactly as pictured. Note that there are approx 50 steps to get down (and back up) so keep that I mind; however, Oia is not good for anyone who cannot walk up steps. I would stay here again!

This is a very comfortable home with amazing views. Central to Oia but quiet too. Worth the cost.

The place to stay when in Oia! The house is beautiful with stunning views. It has 3 bedrooms and 6 people can stay comfortably, so it was perfect for the 5 of us. The cleaning lady, a very nice lady called Claudina, came by every day to do the basic cleaning and make the beds. The house is better than staying in a hotel and beautifully decorated. The jacuzzi and terrace were fantastic, we enjoyed hanging out there and just enjoying the views. I hope to come back to this magical island and beautiful house in the future!

The place was really good - with breathtaking view and unforgettable experience of living in a real cave house. The property manager - Christos - was great! We were welcomed on arrival, directed to the house, had help with our luggage, and were explained everything in the house. He suggested and arranged for us a great activity on the island, was reachable for questions, and even issued partial reimbursement for problems we encountered with Jacuzzi (which he could not fix on time due to Easter weekend). All the rest of amenities were great and worked well, except for the WiFi, which was very weak in the bedrooms (although it was kind of expected in a cave:)) Beds were comfortable, plenty of utensils, bottled water, coffee, tea, sugar, etc - all stacked up for our arrival. Located pretty much at the center of the Oia's walking strip, close to everywhere; several great restaurants and cafeterias nearby. The check out was also smooth - we were leaving rather early, and still got assistance with transportation and help with our luggage. Overall, we had a great time on Santorini and would recommend everyone to settle in Oia while visiting this wonderful island. And among hundreds of other properties available, this cave house seems to be a very good bargain, considering what you get and what you pay for it!
