We chose Aris Caves for a family holiday and it was delightful! The fabulous location in Oia with the most brilliant views of the bluest sea. Not so many steps up to the main pedestrian walkway in Oia it is singularly well located. The warm ,hospitable, caring owner Christina (her first season as owner!) is a delight and makes it... More

We came here right after Easter (Greek) 2015 and stayed in the room "Patari", which offers a private balcony and (soon) a whirlpool. The room has got everything you need: There is a big bathroom with a two-in-one shower, you get olive oil shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. The room you enter is a living room, kitchen and upstairs it... More

Aris Caves is a wonderful, independently owed cave apartment in Oia, Santorini. We felt very welcome by the owner, Christina who welcomed our family on our first visit to Greece with wine, olive oil and excellent cake. The apartment was recently renovated and very clean with cute little decor touches here and there and excellent views of the caldera that... More

Our cave was nicely decorated and had everything we needed for comfort. The manager was really helpful and friendly. We had kitchen facilities and complementary locally grown olive oil, wine and cake. So we decided to pick up some extra food supplies and have picnics from the outside area of our cave as the view from here was simply breath... More

Greece is one of the best destinations wordwide, santorini is exceptional and Oia unique. In this sence, accommodation selection is mandatory for memorable holidays that have the potential to be considered once in a lifetime experience. This sence applies to Aris Caves accomodation, which is located in the most magnificent Caldera spots, with direct view to the Caldera complex and... More

This is a bit unusual to be writing a review about a place that I have never stayed but this story is worth telling.

I really can’t rave enough about our recent stay at Aris Caves, Santorini. We try to stay in unusual accommodation whenever possible, and I truly believe that going to Santorini and staying in a run-of-the-mill hotel would be an absolute sacrilege when you can stay somewhere as unique as this. We chose Aris Caves because it was well priced in... More
