Can you imagine a gorgeous cave house with the most incredible view, quiet, with your own jacuzzi and private patio but only a minutes walk uphill to the centre of town? this is Aris caves. Nothing prepares you for the vista before your eyes, the flowers everywhere, the character and peace of its situation. Oia is the only place to...

My wife and I just returned from Santorini for our honeymoon. This was part of a larger trip to Europe which included a number of amazing locations. I can easily say that our stay in Santorini and, in particular, at Aris Caves was easily the best part of our trip. Not only are the location and views absolutely breathtaking but...

Location: where you want to be. Close to everything, yet secluded enough that you sleep well. View: wake up to the gorgeous sea in front of you. Beautiful hotel, flowers everywhere.

Came across Aris Caves on trip advisor after deciding on Oia for our honeymoon, it looked like just the type of place that we were looking for. No sky high prices like some that offer infinity pools etc yet still the cute cozy little cave style accommodation that you see in WoW photos which is typical of the caldera side...

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights early in May. It was beautiful and Christina was very friendly and helpful. I loved the views and the cave homes. It was very nice that it's down the side of the hill far enough so that you are away from the pedestrian path which can be busy and noisy. Highly...

We stayed 5 nights at Aris Caves and it could not have been a better experience! Christina, the owner and manager, made sure we had transfers to and from the airport, answered our questions every step of the way, and really made the experience very relaxing.

We visited Santorini during the end of the season, which was great. There were still a lot of people but it wasn't overly crowded. The weather was cooler so walking around was very pleasant. Aris caves is very well located in the heart of Santorini with wonderful views. It's a smaller place so we had a lot of privacy. Christina...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Literally, like an eagle's nest hanging in the cliff of the island, Aris Caves is located only a few minutes via stairs down from the center of the lovely village of Oia. Yet the placing of the houses is configured like an amphitheatre, tranquil and ideal to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view across the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni and the deep blue Aegean Sea.Spread over 4 levels are 7 self-catering, fully equipped and separate studios, apartments and a suite, each with kitchenette, shower/toilet, air conditioning, internet and its own terrace. The large terrace in the center and the sun terrace next to the entrance of Aris Caves are open to all guests and offer probably some of the best views of Oia. Due to the cliff side location, stairs and low perimeter walls of the property, we recommend children to be at least 8 years of age and unfortunately cannot recommend our hotel to guests with mobiliy issues. ... more   less
