Olive Cave Houses

Wonderful 4.4/5 20 reviews

Enjoy an authentic local experience during your stay at Olive Cave Houses in Firostefani village! The Olive Cave Houses provide a glimpse into the history of the island and how people lived in the past, due to the volcanic nature of the island and frequent earthquakes. These Cave Houses are conveniently located near the famous Caldera Cliffs and boast spacious terraces with breathtaking panoramic views of the semi-caldera. Keep in mind that the Olive Cave Houses are in operation throughout the year!

Furthermore, the Gold & Silver Cave Houses, which are luxuriously furnished, are semi-detached and connected by an interconnecting door. This allows for complete privacy and independence if the houses are separated, or the option for a large group of friends or a big family to stay together if the houses are connected. The Bronze Cave House boasts its own patio and is favored by guests who appreciate the minimalist and modern decor. It offers more privacy and independence. The terraces of the Gold & Silver cave houses present spectacular views of the semi-caldera in the southwest, while the Bronze House offers views of the village and sea to the northeast. Additionally, there is a free public parking area conveniently located just a few minutes away!

Olive Cave Houses is located in Firostefani

For those wishing to combine peacefulness and entertainment Firostefani is the ideal destination, due to its proximity to the capital of Santorini, Fira. Firostefani is actually an extension of Fira. Its gifted location on the caldera, on the north part of the island, makes it a remarkable site.

There are some white-blue churches dispersed among the beautiful, typical houses that will grab your attention. In this traditional village, there are few cozy restaurants and cafés located on marvelous spots which will make you feel welcome. Some shops and mini markets also exist to provide you with the necessary stuff, most of them concentrated on the main shopping street.

The big advantage of Firostefani, as mentioned earlier, is its proximity to the capital of Santorini; only a step away from the crowded and lively Fira. As a result, it forms the perfect equation. You can combine serenity and relaxation with a vivid nightlife.

A nice location but cleanliness was an issue when we stayed there Sept 2022. Hopefully they have fixed that.

We just left after staying here on our honeymoon. Christos the owner was very nice, he greeted us on arrival and gave us lots of good recommendations and was all around very accommodating. We asked him to book an ATV for us one evening and it was there for us in the morning at a price cheaper than listed. The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable. Would definitely recommend staying here.

As an accomodation it's good but the location is challenging. Very steep walking to the location.
