Cycladic minimalism
on the cliffside

In the gravity-defying village of Oia, this traditional complex of houses once belonged to the old bakery. Originally renovated for our personal use, the houses reflect our deep respect for Santorini’s heritage and our unpretentious definition of luxury — space, light, and natural harmony. Every detail is true to the original layout, from the fanlights above the cherry red doors to the asymmetrical archways and tactile, pressed plaster walls, their outline guided by the rocky terrain.

Accessed by a private entrance, and connected by a sculptural, outdoor staircase, the houses are centrally situated just a minute or two from Oia’s cosmopolitan main street. The world-famous Oia sunset is a short stroll away, but you will almost certainly prefer to stay right here, gazing at the ever-changing light from your private terrace. Sunrise is equally sensational from this vantage point.

Cycladica-Parathira Houses The space

The space

Ideal for families or a group of friends, the three separate buildings are perched high above Santorini’s flooded caldera. With seating ledges running along the cliff edge, deck chairs and sun loungers, an alfresco dining table that easily seats six, and a large jacuzzi set among black volcanic boulders, the huge sundeck is a rare asset in Oia, where space is at a premium.

Sunlight streams into the cool, vaulted interiors through the unusually large windows. Grey marble floors laid in geometric patterns offset pale plaster walls in the laidback living areas. Antique desks, chairs and mirrors lend character to the minimal Cycladic décor. The three built-in beds — two king size and one double — all have superb latex mattresses, ensuring a supremely restful sleep. Two galley kitchens are stocked with everything you need for a light meal or sunset aperitif.
