Unique architecture
and awe-inspiring views

Originally designed as our own beloved summer house, this cliffside property was renovated by local craftsmen well-versed in the secrets of Santorini’s unique cave houses. Fluid forms, neutral tones, and eclectic antiques create a soothing backdrop for the mind-blowing views.

With a prime location just a few steps from Oia’s lively restaurants and boutiques, this traditional cave house offers quiet respite from the summer heat and crowds. Surrounded by seamless vistas of sea and sky, you truly feel immersed in Santorini’s extraordinary landscape. It’s the closest you’ll get to taking flight, like the seagulls dancing overhead.

Cycladica-The Sculptor’s House The space

The space

Cool and calm, the spare interiors let the organic, tactile architecture take centre stage. Apertures let in sunbeams and the sea breeze. In shades of sand and earth, the living room is an expression of effortless Greek island style, with two low-slung sofa beds arranged around a beech coffee table. A solid oak dining table comfortably seats six on matching wooden benches. The fully equipped kitchen has a picture window framing the blue horizon. The bathroom, with its voluptuous curves of stucco offset by Cretan marble, has a handcrafted marble basin and rain shower.

The house has two completely private bedrooms — perfect for a group of friends or a family. The old cistern, a few steps below ground level, is now a deeply peaceful bedroom with an emperor size bed, vintage desk and dresser. A flagstone path follows the natural contours of the hillside to the bright and spacious master bedroom, which has a separate entrance. Multiple terraces hover on the edge of the caldera, each with a different perspective of the awe-inspiring panorama. The cave-like whirlpool is completely hidden from view and also has unobstructed volcano vistas.
