“Canaves Oia Epitome feels like a world of its own. The design combines natural and earthy materials with modern design in excellent Greek fashion. Each of the 24 luxury villas all feature private outdoor pools and uninterrupted sea and sunset vistas - the only place on the island to offer sea views from each room. Our favourite spot is the outdoor fine dining restaurant and lounge, which is quite likely to offer the best sunset views in Oia.”
Volcanic stone walls enclose family-owned Canaves Oia Epitome, which is perched on northern Oia’s rugged clifftops looking out over picturesque Ammoudi town. Less than a mile from Oia centre, the hotel is easily accessible but far enough removed to provide space and tranquillity.
Its 24 luxury villas all feature private outdoor pools and uninterrupted sea and sunset vistas. Cycladic-style architecture preserves the island’s characteristic cave-like interiors which combine natural materials with contemporary design.
Breakfast is served on the terrace and comprises a menu showcasing the different regional cuisine of Greece. Beautiful sunsets set the mood for dinner at Elements Restaurant where chef Tasos Stefatos conjures up succulent traditional dishes.
Guests can explore charming Oia with its host of archaeological delights, or venture further afield to some of Santorini’s astonishing red or black sand beaches. Unwind by the azure infinity pool or in the privacy of your villa’s terrace.
