Ilivatos is your family house that you are invited as guests.

Santorini (Greek: ?????????, pronounced [sado?rini]), officially Thira , is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast from Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera. It forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands, with an area of approximately 73 km2 (28 sq mi) and a 2001 census population of 13,670.

The municipality of Santorini comprises the inhabited islands of Santorini and Therasia and the uninhabited islands of Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Christiana. The total land area is 90.623 km2 (34.990 sq mi). Santorini is part of the Thira regional unit.

It is essentially what remains after an enormous volcanic explosion that destroyed the earliest settlements, on a formerly single island, and created the current geological caldera. A giant central, rectangular lagoon, which measures about 12 by 7 km (7.5 by 4.3 mi), is surrounded by 300 m (980 ft) high, steep cliffs on three sides. The main island slopes downward to the Aegean Sea. On the fourth side, the lagoon is separated from the sea by another much smaller island called Therasia; the lagoon is connected to the sea in two places, in the northwest and southwest. The caldera being 400m deep makes it possible for all but the largest ships to anchor anywhere in the protected bay; there is, however, a newly built marina in Vlychada on the southwestern coast. The principal port is called Athinias. The capital, Fira, clings to the top of the cliff looking down on the lagoon. The volcanic rocks present from the prior eruptions feature olivine and have a notably small presence of hornblende.

It is the most active volcanic center in the South Aegean Volcanic Arc, though what remains today is chiefly a water-filled caldera. The volcanic arc is approximately 500 km (310 mi) long and 20 to 40 km (12 to 25 mi) wide. The region first became volcanically active around 3–4 million years ago, though volcanism on Thira began around 2 million years ago with the extrusion of lavas from vents around the Akrotiri.

The island is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thira eruption), which occurred some 3600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash deposits hundreds of feet deep and may have led indirectly to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, 110 km (68 mi) to the south, through a gigantic tsunami. This theory is not, however, supported by chronology, in that the collapse of the Minoan civilization did not occur at the date of the tsunami, but some 90 years later. Another popular theory holds that the Thira eruption is the source of the legend of Atlantis.

It is an island with long history that has suffered a lot of catastrophes due to volcano eruptions that have changed its shape.

But human power turned to be stronger than rough nature. Today the -almost- lunar scenery with the black, gray and red volcanic rocks has turned into a white state. The mild architecture of Cyclades islands has changed the island's sight. The graphic villages, with the narrow cobblestone pavements, the small squares and their churches impress every visitor. View to volcano that most tourist resorts have- is spectacular. The picture is unique especially the sunset. Photos of Santorini's sunset are all around the world. At dawn all visitors run to Caldera to see the reddish sky.

All of Santorini is a site. The significant archaeological places (Akrotiri, Ancient Thira) the museums, the monasteries, the churches, the tenable settlements, the volcano, all pieces of a puzzle that join yesterday with today and prove how special Santorini is.

Vivid life tempos characterize Santorini. It's one of the most cosmopolitan islands in Greece with tourist development. It offers high standard services to all visitors.

As for accommodation you will find hotels and rooms to let of all categories that satisfy all demands. Concerning gastronomic delights, Santorini's cuisine is famous for its special dishes, you can accompany with the local wine. Concerning nightlife and options for entertainment Santorini satisfies all preferences.

Santorini has an airport that connects the island with Athens and most of the big cities, while in its port arrive in everyday courses ferries from Piraeus, Crete and the rest of Cyclades islands.

Oia is a cosmopolitan resort in Santorini.

It is widely known for its dream-like sunset. Every dawn people gather in caldera to see that magic moment where the sun disappears in the endless Aegean open sea which takes the reddish colors of the day as it goes by.

It is built on a height of 350 m above the level of the sea and is sited on the north side of the island, 11 km far from Fira.

It distinguishes for its authentic beauty. The carved in rocks settlement, house-caves, that are excavated in rocks, are its characteristic. That kind of houses are found only in Santorini, due to its particular kind of ground.

Oia is the first settlement in Greece identified as preserved not only for its carved in rocks houses but also for its nobility and unique beauty. Even the latest buildings distinguish for their traditional architecture of Cyclades and their unique appearance. Walking through the picturesque paths, you will find a lot of touristic shops ,coffee houses and restaurants. In the evening you can go for drinks in one of the many bars in Oia and enjoy the view under the candle-light.

From Oia you can reach the beach of Ammoudi by car or by our unique traditional donkeys... You can also swim at the beach of Armeni.

Southeast of Oia is located the beach of Koloubos. It is a quiet beach with pebbles just 4 Km from Oia.

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay! The house was very clean and set up perfectly. The location is also perfect. This is our fourth trip to Santorini from the U.S. but first house rental and we would stay there again. We will be telling our friends to rent this home. Raymond was very helpful and prepares a wonderful Greek breakfast. He was always willing to accommodate us and we thank him!

Exceptional home & a wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, Raymond is outstanding. He is one of the best hosts I have met. Helpful but non intrusive & always available. He made us feel really welcome. Your house is exceptional - amazing views (specially in moonlight) and the location is wonderful - steps from the main street. Our experience in Santorini would not have been half as enjoyable but for the lovely stay at Ilivatos.

Thank you for sharing the place with us & we hope to see you again.

I want to go back right away!

  • 5 of 5

Ilivatos was far superior to our expectations. The house is not far away from the parking lot as is idealy located in Oia, far away fro the crowds and close to shops and restaurants. The house is very confortable , the view is magnificent, during the day and at Night. Raymond, the housekeeper is the person that gives life to the house, and provide a service never seen. He will come every morning with and serve a delicious breakfast, and clean the house. He is also available for any other need you may have. Also, Irene the manager provides a customer service that makes a difference. We were ver happy , for sure will return to the house, and strongly recommend it to anyone planning to have a great time in Oia..

we loved this dream house!

  • 5 of 5

We would like to keep it short and simply.

The house is all your will ever ask for in your vacation, the view is beyond imagination, the sunset unforgettable for life.

the house is located very close to the public parking lot which makes everything a lot easier especially when you travel with elder people.

While sitting in the verandas you almost feel like flying over the sea.. what a feeling to be honest!

The house is super clean, Raymont ( the house keeper) always helpful and ready to assist.

We were 9 people and honestly we felt super comfortable , there was enough space in order not to bump into each other.

Highlight the breakfast every morning that Raymont prepared for us!

We travelled a long way to Santorini and booking this house really made a difference to us, we hightly recommend it!

Dear Irene,

We are soooooooo very happy with your home.....thanx a lot for sharing it with us.....your guy Reymond out here is simply amazing guy......it was a huge binus to top up to your super amazing villa....

Illivatos from the villa to the smallest detail you painstakingly take care of is absolutely worth a mention....the stone lights, the terrace set up at all levels, the linnen(soo fresh and tasteful) the entire kitchen set up, specially the amazing nespresso coffee, the carefully selected toiletries etc.etc. Etc and i could go on and on.

what an amazing house! stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

Loved this AMAZING house and would stay there again and again. Super cozy holiday villa with the feeling of a well catered home except it comes with an incredible service , amazing staff and, of course the best view in Santorini (if not the world). No wonder why this house is in every single post card of Santorini. However, as beautiful as the view is, the true charm of the place is in its warmth . The villa’s location is perfect and walkable to everything.

We really loved it! We can’t stop thinking of our wonderful vacation at Ilivatos.

We will definitely come back, until then keep well!
