House details The Hector Cave House, carved into the unique caldera cliff for more than 250 years, was originally used as a wine cellar (“the canava”). The traditional “canava” became a family owned summer house, which then opened its doors to share its unique character to travellers from around the world. Since 2016 two more cave houses have been renovated on top of the Hector Cave house. The Hector Luxury Cave and the Hector Caldera Nest room. THE HECTOR CAVE HOUSE Indoor Hector Cave house (60 square meters) can host 2-5 people, ideal for one couple or a company of 2-5 friends. The house includes one bedroom, two bathrooms and a living room area. The bedroom has one built-in King size bed LOCATED ON THE LOFT and one single sofa bed 200 cm x 80 cm.

Thanks a lot for your feedback Patrea! Just to mention that this review was supposed to be under the Hector Caldera Nest Listing and not under the Hector Cave House (which is a villa + pool) You are welcome anytime in the future!

About the neighborhood
Hector Cave house is situated in a very convenient location, right on the main path of Oia traditional settlement. Within walking distance, visitors can reach all the highlights of Oia and wonder around picturesque shops, cozy restaurants and romantic caldera-view cafes. Also, the house lies a few steps from the old castle and the best viewing spot for the famous Oia sunset. Although close to local activity, the house provides peacefulness and privacy, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the marvelous view from the terrace.
Getting around
Getting around the island is possible either by bus transport (5 min walking distance away from home is Oia Village central bus station), taxi or by renting a car or an ATV
