Nearest sandy beach (Baxedes) is 1500 m downhill, therefore it is advised to go there by bus or rented vehicle.
I am a freelancer architect living with my husband Costas, marine biologist Ph.D. and our dog Lara, I like good food, wine tasting, classical music and travelling around the world. In my life and travels I prefer knowing interesting people and different cultures than simply been a tourist.
Eleni Moulopoulou purchased this villa in 1999
This property is historical. It has been the last traditional winery of Finikia, operating until 72. There has been a very positive aura which attracted us to buy and restore this unique building complex.
The area is one of the most beautiful worldwide for people seeking internal peace, gourmet food and excellent wine.
The unique traditional architectural style of the building. Nothing straight or symmetrical, just hand made.
Introduction to Santorini, Oia and Finikia.
Oia occupies the best part of the island, the north-western part, eleven kilometers away from Fira. The traditional village is also situated on the top of an impressive cliff and offers a spectacular view over the volcano of Palia and Nea Kameni and the island of Thirassia. The houses of Oia are dug in the volcanic lava, mainly two-store houses with a very particular character. This is the best choice for those who wish to enjoy their holidays far from very crowded places and experience the uniqueness of Santorini. If Fira is the fancy and glamorous side of the island, Oia is the elitist part.
Here you can surrender to the magic of nature that has created this little paradise on earth. Spectacular sea views, wonderful architecture, the world famous sunset of Oia with its magical purple colours are just some of the reasons that bring the most famous names of the international jet set to Oia. Must see are The Maritime Museum housed in a captain's house of the 19th century, Sigalas Winery, located on the plain of Oia (Baxedes region), and Oia Castle.
During the past centuries, Oia was the resident area, while the attached neighbourhood of Finikia was the industrial, full of wineries.
is a small village, attached to Oia as its neighbourhood. There were the wineries where the grapes from the wine field of Santorini, were processed to wine. Village is there since middle Ages. Most buildings were wineries with some accommodation for the workers. The economy of this small village was directly dependent from the wine. As there were not any wells in the area, fresh water was scarce and exclusively supplied by the rain, collected into the sizable underground cisterns of the houses. In our days, very few houses maintain their cisterns in operation and fresh water is provided by the sea, via a local desalination plant.
In our days, Finikia is characterized as a Traditional Settlement and therefore the local architecture is somewhat protected. No cars or motor vehicles of any kind are allowed into the narrow alleys of the village. Finikia is a very silent and romantic place away from the afternoon tourist crowds raiding Oia due to its famous sunset. There you can enjoy your wine in peace while sun falls….
Santorini Island Beaches
Almost all the eastern side of the island is full of beaches. Famous sandy beaches like Perissa, Kamari and Perivolas are the most crowded and trendy, full of restaurants and beach bars. However there are beaches like Kouloumbos, Vlychada, and Mesa Pigadia etc with very beautiful nature.
Simply named the Red beach is one of the most beautiful beaches to be found in the Aegean Sea. Close to Akrotiri in the south is a small bay nestled besides soaring red lava cliffs with terracotta colored sand that disappears into the crystal clear turquoise water. The short walk to the beach is a small effort for the reward of an amazing view
Santorini island is well serviced by both air and sea. There are three flights daily from Athens to Santorini with Aegean and Olympic Airlines. There is also a multitude of international charter flights during the summer season. Sky Express is a small airline that connects Santorini with Mykonos and Crete with daily flights during the high season.
The fastest boat to Santorini from Piraeus (the main port of Athens) is the High-Speed ferry which takes 4,5 hours. There are a number of other ferries that connect Santorini with Athens and the other islands.
Moving around Santorini with a rental car or motorbike is perfectly easy but it is of course busier in high season. Please do not hesitate to ask our concierge for assistance with your travel arrangements and vehicle rentals.
In order to reach the “Winery Villa” you first have to arrive to Finikia.
We can arrange a taxi or mini van to pick you from the airport or harbour and drop you to Finikia.
