In typical Santorinian style with white-washed walls, 4 bedrooms, 2 comfortable living rooms with extra sofa –bed and a canopy , dining rooms with table for 6 people each , 4 Bathrooms and 2 fully equipped Kitchens, Ilivatos is your family house that you are invited as guests … Ilivatos consists of 2 separate houses and a guest house. The first has a fully equipped kitchen, living room with sofa bed for 2, sofa, dining table for 6, 1 bathroom and a wooden staircase to a bedroom-loft with double bed. The second house consists of a single room with fully equipped kitchen, a sofa and dining table for 4, 1 bathroom, one double bedroom and a staircase that descends to the second double bedroom and bathroom. The first and second homes share a large terrace overlooking the caldera. A staircase leads to the second level. There is the double guest room with bathroom and large veranda. The house sleeps up to 11 people. The 3 unique terraces are lying in 3 levels overlooking the caldera, offering stunning views over the amazing volcano. She can also be divided in separate self catered apartments for 2 4 or 7 people with shared balconies and verandas, which provide unrivaled views at the Aegean Sea. Don not hesitate to contact for our special rates. Ilivatos is built on the edge of the caldera ... The traditional architecture of Santorini is similar to that of the other Cyclades, with low-lying cubical houses, made of local stone and whitewashed or lime washed with various volcanic ashes used as colors. The unique characteristic is the common utilization of the hypóskapha: extensions of houses dug sideways or downwards into the surrounding pumice. These rooms are prized because of the high insulation provided by the air-filled pumice, and are used as living quarters of unique coolness in the summer and warmth in the winter, and also as premium storage space for produce and especially for wine cellaring: the Kánava wineries of Santorini. Guest services include, aside the personal attendance and welcoming by our rep, all breakfast provisions and daily fresh bread and fruits. Maid service is provided daily, and linen change twice a week. Beach towels are also provided. Wi-Fi internet access in all areas of Ilivatos Villa , as well as travel, excursion and concierge arrangements and complimentary transfers upon arrival. We promise you memorable vacations while enjoying the magic and the mystery of our breathtaking island. More

About the neighborhood
Santorini is now called a Κοινότητα (commune), within the municipality of Thira, and it comprises the local subdivisions (Greek: τοπικό διαμέρισμα) of Thirasia and Oia. The municipality of Thira includes an additional 12 local subdivisions on Santorini island: Akrotiri, Emporio, Episkopis Gonia, Exo Gonia, Imerovigli, Karterados, Megalohori, Mesaria, Pyrgos Kallistis, Thira (the seat of the municipality), Vothon, and Vourvoulos. Oia is a cosmopolitan resort in Santorini. It is widely known for its dream-like sunset.
