Hector Cave House, carved into the unique caldera cliff for more than 250 years, was originally used as a wine cellar. Then it became a family owned complex of three different properties that opened its doors to share its unique character to travelers from around the world.

Location

Santorini, Central Greece, Greece

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 complex lies a few steps from the old castle and the best viewing spot for the famous Oia sunset.

Although close to local activity, the Hector Cave House provides peacefulness and privacy.

Hi there, I am Giannis, I grew up in Athens and after studying and working abroad (UK and Switzerland) for 5 years,I decided to come back in Greece and work for a family business. In 1998 my parents visited Santorini Island and they fell in love with Oia village where they bought those picturesque cave houses… Since then all about my summer vacations is to lay back at that terrace and admire the spectacular view. Traveling is to share… There is no better way of doing this, other than sharing the experience with other travelers. Of course I will not lose any chance to discover unique destinations like Santorini around the world…
