About the property


Cottage Alexandros (204 m²) is one of the 3 secluded spacious cottages in a private land of 8.000 m², just 150 meters from the quite Koloumbo beach (Cape Columbo). The houses share a swimming pool. The village of Oia is 3,5 km away.

The untouched Santorini a destination out of the beaten track, we offer an alternative way of vacation in Santorini with simplicity close to nature.

On the North side of Santorini very close of the cosmopolitan Oia and next to the Koloumpo undersea volcano is Siskos Place, a settlement combined of 3 secluded spacious cottages placed in absolute harmony with the environment. They stand in the silent beauty of Santorini's volcanic landscape, in 8.000 unspoiled private square meters of land.

The architecture is strictly Cycladic. All premises are exclusively made out of natural local materials and designed with traditional Cycladic bioclimatic principles so as to provide for coolness during summer without the need for artificial means.

The "SiskosPlace" was built in 2000 by Petros Siskos, a civil engineer, and his 2 sons Alexandros and Elias. The Place was for many years a relaxation destination for the family and friends. In 2015 Alexandros decided to settle in Santorini and open SiskosPlace to guests.

The furniture are collected through the years mainly from Santorini or made to order by local technicians. The decoration includes a variety of art pieces, ceramics, paintings, icons and book collections.

The cottage has a kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedroom and two paved courtyards sheltered by pergolas with marble tables, benches, garden chairs and Hammock. It shares a swimming pool and the sun loungers.

The fauna

The more patient visitor will have the chance to discover a place full of unique creatures. Rare migratory birds, falcons, partridges, owls, crows, dragonflies, hares, hedgehog and turtles.

The flora

Fig, prickly pear cactuses, olive, carob, palm, pomegranate trees dominate the landscape.

Rosemary, lavender, thyme, fennel, oregano, basil, mint, αρμπαρόριζα are some of the native herbs in the garden.

Staying in SiskosPlace's Alexandros cottage, makes you part of Santorini's natural environment, you enjoy the simple and genuine Santorini's life away from the hustle and bustle of this cosmopolitan island.

Alexandros the owner is always around happy to assist you with all your requests.

Transfer from the port/airport can be arranged upon request with extra charge.

Mobile phones are given to the guests for contacting Alexandros any time 24/7 during their stay.

[The neighborhood]

Kolumbo Beach (Cape Columbo), for many the most beautiful beach of Santorini Island. It is a unique and still unspoiled sandy beach with pebbles, surrounded by cliffs and beautiful natural environment. It offers great views and relaxing moments since it is isolated, the beach is not organised and attracts nudism lovers. You can enjoy the stunning "Oia's sunset" right from Kolumbo Beach or SiskosPlace cottages without the hassle of the crowd.

Très sympas ?!!

  • 5 of 5

Un accueil très sympa, un lieu magique avec une piscine un peu froide pour la saison. La maison est très bien entretenue, bien équipée quoique un peu sonore. Mais l'environnement et la chaleur humaine d'Alexandros en font un lieu magique

Un grand merci à Alexandros

Location idéale pour une semaine de rêve

  • 5 of 5

Siskos place est un endroit merveilleux pour y passer un séjour relaxant tout en profitant de la frénésie de Santorin. La maison que nous occupions était très grande, très propre et en retrait du chemin avec une vue sur la mer. On y voit passer les ânes soir et matin dans le petit sentier devant la maison. Nous étions 4 adultes et il y a 2 salons, 2 salles de bain complètes et surtout, 4 grands lits d'un confort exceptionnel. Plusieurs terrasses, hamacs et une immense piscine comblent les désirs de ferniente... Une belle plage de galets est très près aussi et on s'y rend à pied. Alexandros est vraiment avenant, chaleureux et désire que ses invités soient heureux! Merci pour tout!
