Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Oia - Fava Residence - Aeolos Suite
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 3
An unforgettable experience. Our goal is to make you feel that Fava is your own home and Santorini, your island.
The Fava Residences, which opened in 2013, are housed in a splendid and unique captain house of the mid 19th century, located at the highest point of the traditional village of Finikia. The architects and owners of the property, Thomas, Dora and Antonis Gavalas, started the rebuilt in the 1980's with love and care and they transformed it into a spacious and modern, though with respect to the original traditional form, summer house. Today, the building offers its hospitality in three individual fully furnished self-catering apartments that offer a sense of 19th century history combined and harmonized with modern amenities and services, located in the heart of the most picturesque and virgin from the tourist development village of the island. Fava is just a stone's throw from the magnificent Oia and away from the crowds and noise.
You will enjoy the wonderful views over the village, the famous sunset of the island and the Aegean Sea with the close Ios, Sikinos and Folegandros islands on the horizon.

The apartment is furnished with antiques, according to the traditional naval history of the first owners.
