Aris Caves was our first stop in Greece and it was wonderful! Christina was easy to communicate with, friendly and outgoing. She arranged our transfer from the airport and to the port. She also arranged for our car rental and boat ride and gave us fantastic tips for restaurants, beaches as well as advice on other islands and Athens. All... More

When I first started looking for a hotel in Santorini Aris Caves caught my attention for the location and the few pictures available. Ever since I first contacted Christina back in December the communication was prompt, always corteous, and extremely helpful. Once we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Christina, whom I felt I had known for a while by... More

Staying at Aris Caves was a truly romantic and restful experience. We will always remember those evenings when we sat on the terrace of our little villa with a glass while drinking in the blue expanse of the Aegean Sea. The accommodation had a kind of elegant simplicity - just the right balance for a holiday stay: intimate and private... More

I booked Aris Caves based on reviews from the old management. Luckily, the hotel was even better than expected as Christina acquired the property prior to this season and has upgraded an already wonderful accommodation. Great cave rooms that are plenty large. amazing views. very functional kitchen area that comes well stocked with some basics including ground coffee, real milk,... More

This quaint little hotel was the perfect place for our 4 night stay in Oia, Santorini. Everything went smoothly, from the initial booking to the airport transfer at the end of our stay. The owner of the hotel, Christina, made sure that everything was perfect for us. She arranged our transportation to and from the airport/ferry terminals and had a... More

If you are planning a visit to Santorini, Aris Caves is the place to stay. The views are unimaginable. Our room was so nice, it was hard to believe we were actually staying in a cave. It was spacious enough to accommodate our family of 4 comfortably. Christina, the concierge, was so welcoming and friendly. She is the perfect person... More

A perfect place to stay in Oia - Christina is amazing. Planning our arrival and the transfer, organizing the luggage transport, awaiting us in front of our room (Folia), providing first necessities (Water, Wine, Coffee...), giving a map of Oia, telling us where to eat right after arrival (10pm), organizing a car for the whole week... it couldn't be more....

Aris Caves is an ideal place to stay in Oia. We took our two children and stayed in the Fournos apartment. It was perfect for us and we all loved it!

Just a few steps away from the bustling center of Oia the Aris Caves apartments offer a great atmosphere of privacy and comfort which helps everyone to relax and enjoy the beauty of the Caldera cliff coast.
