Vino Houses Villas are located on the ancient village of Finikia in the northwest of the island of Santorini. This small, quiet settlement has picturesque streets and buildings and is only a few minutes away from the breathtaking Oia village. Finikia used to house the famous canaves (cellars) where people from the centre of Oia stored their wine.

Oia is known for its much photographed sunsets and its spectacular view over the caldera. Locals and visitors say sunsets here during June are unique in their beauty.

Vino Houses Villas look out over the intense blue Aegean Sea and from here, guests can explore all the highlights of this spectacular island before returning to relax. There are three villas, all of which take their names from local wines — Vinsanto, Nykteri and Athiri. Each is decorated in minimal Cycladic style with views over traditional vineyards and neighbouring islands. From their verandas, guests can take in the beautiful views. Each villa has a private outdoor pool with a two-seat hydro-massage.

Vinsanto villa is at the top of the three-house complex. It has two verandas from which guests can enjoy the famous sunsets while relaxing in privacy. In the bedroom there’s a loft with a dome above it, from which it’s possible to see the vineyards and village.

Nykteri villa has a private veranda in the front and a sofa at the back. Large windows in the living room overlook beautiful countryside.

Athiri villa has a swimming pool which is partly covered by its own dome. Guests can take in the sunsets in privacy from their living room windows and verandas.

The owner is there to greet guests and provide delicious home-cooked meals using locally sourced ingredients, sometimes from their own garden. Breakfast is always freshly made and served either in the dining room of the villa or outside in their private patio.

The best thing about Vino Houses Villas is that guests are guaranteed Greek hospitality, which will make them feel like they are in their very own home.
