A family winery where the year’s crop was stoically aging in oak barrels, was converted into a luxurious, intimate lodge with three suites: Canava (= winery), Eutopia (=seeking of the best possible world), and Lala (=grandmother in the Santorinean dialect). A conversion that paid meticulous attention to preserve the original character of the complex.

The space
1830. The Santorinean family Sigalas builds a sheepfold hewn in the rock, in the settlement of Karterados in the center of Fira, to hide their animals when pirates raided the island. Forty-seven years later, the cave is converted into a home to house the large family with the children and grandchildren who expected to be given pancakes with sugar every night. One and a half centuries later, the home that remains today a home, near that a separate place for the goats, the grandmother’s house and a canava, the family winery where the year’s crop was stoically aging in oak barrels, were converted into a luxurious, intimate lodge with three suites: Canava (= winery), Eutopia (=seeking of the best possible world), and Lala (=grandmother in the Santorinean dialect). A conversion that paid meticulous attention to preserve the original character of the complex.

Cavana Cave Suite
This canava with the multiple chambers will keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter owing to the stable temperature that each canava has to uphold for the refined and ageful wine. The dominant white shades on the wall and the furniture harmoniously coexists with warm colors, colors identical to the Santorini sky and the show that it gives every sunset. Colors reminiscent of an amalgamation of the theatric earth and the volcanic ash that covered Akrotiri in 1613 BC. This already striking features accented with the black stone, the volcanic material with which this canava was built one hundred and fifty years ago, make a definite promise to accommodate you in everything that you have always mattered: in feelings that are born, in serene places, in places steped in history. If paradise exists, to has to look like this.

Canava cave suite can accommodate 4 adults and one child from 12-17 years old.
There is a roof terrace with an outdoor hot tub plunge pool available for White cave suites guests only.

Location

Karterádos, Greece

Karterados village, or sister village of Fira, is only 2 klm away from the capital of the island and offers many options for food, cafes, supermarkets, bakeries, tourist shops and rental car/scooter agencies.
Karterados is very centrally located, within walking distance from Fira (2' drive & 15' walk).
The neighbourhood is very traditional, since we are located at the heart of the traditional settlement of Karterados, where the small narrow pedestrian paths meet the white blue dome churches, the street cats lay under the sun and the chickens from the house yards chase each other.
At white Cave suites, one can experience the authenticity of living in a traditional cycladic village and a luxurious, unique lodge.
