De ruimte
Nestled just beside the blue dome, floating at the top of the soaring cliffs, overlooking the endless blue sky and sparkling seas, Santorini dreams come to life in this luxuriously renovated traditional cave house in literally the most sought after location in the very heart of world-famous Oia.

The house is located right next to the most famous blue dome of Oia. While tourists and honeymooners line up to take a precious Oia photo at the dome, you will feel fortunate to access this dome during any moment you desire. Despite the popularity of the location, the house is supremely private-a true rarity in bustling Oia. The location is so popular that the walkway adjacent to the house accessing the dome was closed off and dedicated only to Opuntia house, ensuring no disruptions to your private enjoyment of this most special place.

The high position at the very top of the cliff has two supreme advantages not often found in Oia: very few stairs to climb and the best views to be found in Oia! Where other houses further below have up to 100 stairs to climb, this house is reached by a mere 20 steps.

No luxurious detail has been spared in the inviting interiors of this renovated traditional cave house. The collection of tasteful antiques and charming handcrafted local furniture mingle effortlessly with Cycladic charm and elegant simplicity. Organic, curving plaster walls, vaulted ceilings and hand-polished cement floors frame the airy main living room. Soft neutral colors gracefully complement nature’s palette of brilliant blue just outside your doorstep.

The large central living room is bright and airy. A comfortable seating area, with sofa, benches and a charming antique writing desk overlook the stunning volcano sea view. Two built-in daybeds nestled in the rear of the Living Room serve as extra sofas or comfortable single beds.

The full kitchen evokes country elegance and luxury, with everything you need to feel right at home. The hand-made polished cement countertops are smooth and warm. The vaulted plaster ceilings and various niched arches framed in volcanic stone are carefully preserved details of the original house-quaint reminders of its former historical life. The kitchen is fully equipped with a full size refrigerator, a small cooktop/oven, convenience appliances, cookware, china and cutlery.

Connected to the living room with traditional stone-framed doors, is one private bedroom with connected bath. The queen size bed is cocooned below romantic curving ceilings and tucked into the caldera cliffs with a towering light well bringing light from above. The large bath is sensual and luxurious, just what one would expect.

Up a Cycladic volcanic stone stair is the second studio bedroom suite- a cozy hide-away with a queen bed and luxurious private bath.

The large private roof-top terrace is the perfect place to unwind morning, afternoon or evening with bright, white-washed walls and colorful native flowers. Oia’s famous blue dome sits like a special acquaintance right next to the terrace, bringing a special feeling to this place not to be found anywhere else in Santorini.

Here is the perfect place to greet the morning sun or embrace the romantic twinkling of Oia’s evening lights. Breathtaking views capture the picturesque blue chapel domes and tiny cliff-side cave houses of Oia, the nearby volcano and islands with little glimmering white villages, all cloaked in the bright azure hues of the sea and sky and the infinite colors of nature’s paintbrush at sunset.While the mad rush of tourists retreats from Oia’s “famous sunset” en masse, you will be privileged to linger over every last color of the day.

This is a fully serviced home. Daily maid service provided.

Tidbits about the house and area history:
Opuntia House is the result of the careful renovation of a very important historical Santorini house style, completely unique to the island. Commonly called “cave houses” today in Santorini, many examples have been preserved and renovated in Oia.

Most early residents of Santorini worked in sea trading and exports. In order to be close to their occupation and also to perceive potentially unfriendly ship invasions, they chose to live on the edge of the caldera cliffs. Wealthy ship captains built mansions that can still be seen in Oia today. Ship hands and sailors built “hyposkafa” or cave houses”, which were carved into the soft pumice stone of the cliff-sides.

These cave houses were easier to build, and protected the occupants from the harsh winter winds and weather. The natural insulation of the earthen walls of the space also regulated the interior temperature year-round, keeping them warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Today, this natural insulation continues to produce an advantage for the villa, maintaining a constantly cool interior environment, even on the hottest summer days.

The renovation of Opuntia House preserved the original organic shapes of the smooth walls and vaulted ceilings that were part of the original house. The creative use of the original features is evident throughout the house.
