Aris Caves Oia

Years ago, caves were discovered on the Caldera side of Oia on the Greek island of Santorini which archaeologists identified as ancient cave houses and lodgings. Some of these cave dwellings were transformed into Hotel ARIS CAVES, a small and intimate apartment hotel with 7 independent vacation rentals.

ARIS CAVES is situated barely a 100 yards from the village center of Oia and close to all attractions but despite of this proximity tranquil and ideal for a vacation in Santorini. A place to relax, to dream and to enjoy the breathtaking view across the Santorini Caldera, the volcano Nea Kameni, the island Thirasia and the deep blue Aegean Sea.

There are 7 self-catering, fully equipped and separate studios, apartments and a suite, all with kitchenette or kitchen, bathroom/toilet, air conditioning, Wi-Fi, their own terrace and some of them with Jacuzzis spread over 3 levels. The large terrace in the center and the sun terrace next to the entrance of ARIS CAVES are available to all guests.  Due to the caldera location, the many stairs and low perimeter walls, we recommend children to be at least 8 years of age and also unfortunately we cannot recommend our hotel to guests with limited mobility.

During the past months ARIS CAVES has been thoroughly modernized, renovated and adapted for more comfort. We added hot tubs to Suite Patári, Superior Studio Folia and an additional Deluxe Studio including a hot tub, named “Kallisti – The Beauty”, at the previous sun terrace on the lowermost level of ARIS CAVES. 

Your host Christina Papafili looks forward to welcome you at hotel ARIS CAVES and is at your disposal with information, advice and help in all local matters you may have in English, French and Greek.
