Elia 1968 Cave Houses

Exceptional 5.0/5 26 reviews

Located in Finikia Village, Elia 1968 Cave Houses is an excellent lodging facility for families and friend groups traveling together. The three houses are the epitome of luxury and comfort, combining the beauty of nature and traditional Cycladic architecture. The elements of stone and wood are complemented by minimal colors and tones. For each house, the open-place space is dominated by a large garden. You’ll get a well-equipped kitchen and bathroom in addition to a comfortable bedroom.

You can find a variety of restaurants and a mini-market for daily shopping within walking distance. At a distance of 3 km, you’ll find a beautiful beach where you can relax and swim in clear blue waters. 200 meters away from the facility, there’s a parking area for the guests. The Cave Houses are located 16 km away from the Santorini Airport and 18 km away from the Santorini Port.

You can book the houses separately or together. The whole area has a classic ambiance, allowing you to reminisce Santorini’s past with breathtaking domes and elegant simplicity.

Elia 1968 Cave Houses is located in Finikia

The tranquil village of Finikia is located on the north part of Santorini, 10 kilometers northwest of the capital Fira, very close to Oia settlement. The village stands out for the colorful buildings that remind a painting and compose an incredible setting. It overlooks green vineyards and the neighboring islands. From Finikia you can explore the appealing beaches of the northeast coast, like Baxedes and Paradisos.

Contrary to the architecture of Oia, where the houses are built on the caldera owing a wild beauty, the houses in Finikia are in harmony and consist of delightful yards, stairs and interesting facades.

The Elia 1968 Cave Houses is a magnificent place to stay and highly recommended to everyone. The host (Katerina) is extremely helpful with everything, the place is super clean and the interior design, including towels, room accessories meet the highest standards of accommodation. The private Sunset suite (where we stayed) is equipped with a jacuzzi from which you have a dreaming sunset view of the sea from top making you believe you’re in a fairytale. The Neighbourhood is super quiet and with great restaurants which is a plus for me.

Perfection in hospitality, cleaness, great facilities and just a 10-minute walk to Oia, all in one of the quietest areas on the Island!

We stayed two nights at Elia's but wish we had more time. It was a great location, and the host, Katerina was incredible. She provided great food recommendations and even took the time to arrange us taxis as well as a catamaran tour. I'd definitely stay there again and will be passing it along to friends/family.

Elia 1968 was an amazing place to stay. We loved the cave style home. The area was lovely with restaurants nearby and a beautiful view of the ocean. We could easily walk to Oia. Most of all, the owner , Katherina, helped us so much. She greeted us warmly and helped orient us to Santorini. She helped us arrange a boat tour and made restaurant suggestions for us. This is a beautiful place stay!
