Architecture – History

Evmenia Luxury Cave Villa is an exclusive sanctuary that invites you to experience the most precious moments of your vacations in Oia. Characteristic residence of the island towards the close of the 19th century with its unique Cycladic architecture and the unadorned lines will surely impress you. Fully renovated , this residence – that belongs to our family for over 150 years – combines luxury and simplicity at the same time.

The older inhabitants of Oia Village used to call this house as “Kaminada”  (chimney in Greek) because it was a very good spot to observe if a ship they were waiting was approaching Santorini.

Another use of this house was to accommodate wedding parties due to its’ sizable living space and high cross-vault ceiling.
