Aris Caves

Oia, Santorini, Greece

A small traditional Cave hotel on the stunning cliff edge of Oia, on the island of Santorini.

Years ago, pumice-stone miners discovered caves on the Caldera side of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini which archaeologists identified as ancient housings and lodgings. Some of these cave dwellings were transformed into Hotel ARIS CAVES, a small and intimate aparthotel with seven independent traditional lodgings.

ARIS CAVES is situated barely 100 yards from the village centre and close to all attractions of Oia. The small homes sit like eagle nests on the cliff side of the island, tranquil and ideal to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view over the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni, the island Thirasia 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 centre of ARIS CAVES is open to all guests and offers probably one of the best views in Oia.

There are 4 studios for 2 guests, 3 of which offer private outdoor hot tubs. There are 2 apartments that are well suited to families of 4. And one generous suite for a maximum of 6 people with a private outdoor hot tub. All have a private furnished terrace with stunning views.

Your host Christina and her team are at your disposal with information, advice and help in all local matters you may have in English, Greek or French. With holidays at ARIS CAVES in Oia on Santorini, you can experience one of the globe’s most unique Volcano Islands with a history of more than six millenniums bound to the sagas of ancient Atlantis.

Aris Caves is open from April to October.
