An old traditional winery transformed to resort apartments, ideal for a couple get-away, a family vacation, a special event or visitors seeking for a peaceful and private accommodation in Santorini.
The Canava Villa #2 comes with a master bedroom which is positioned at the very end of the ground floor which can be isolated from the main space through a sliding Japanese-inspired large window. There is also a closet and the bed is in king size. The bedroom is also ensuite with its own shower and toilet. The shower cabin can also offer hydromassage facilities. Worth to mention that while you are laying in the bed you are enjoying a view to a rocky enlightened “garden” by your side.
Upper floor can accommodate up to 4 people, providing four single floor mattresses and having their own ensuite bathroom as well.
On the ground floor, apart from the fully equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the living room area with a fireplace, big comfortable sofas, flat smart TV, Bluetooth audio system, workspace and there is also a WC for your own guests!

In the heart of the traditional settlement of Emporio, the biggest village of Santorini, Canava Villas is a brand-new complex of three independent villas (three distinct housing units). Resort apartments, ideal for a couple get-away, a family vacation, a special event (wedding, anniversary, birthday party) or visitors seeking for a peaceful and private accommodation in Santorini. Canava Villas promises absolute privacy and an unforgettable stay for those who seek to experience the authentic Santorinian island life with all modern comforts.
A unique architectural project! A place made with respect to tradition and a special care for your wellbeing in Santorini!
Carved into the cliff side, Canava villas can host up to 16 individuals in a naturally cool setting where the marvel of mountain rocks and stones prevails. A combination of stone and wood. With 4.5metres high ceilings, polished-concrete floors and walls, a vivid multicolour décor, rooftop accommodation, 5mt jet plunge pool with a hidden jacuzzi gem, custom designed furnishings, outdoor sitting that oversees the pool area and state-of-the-art technology, the property is vast, unique, and undeniably chic. With direct access to the yard and terrace, the villas feature sea views to the sea of Perivolos and to the old picturesque medieval village of Emporio.
The whole renovation effort was based on the notion of “inserting” a new use (vacation housing) in the old structure while maintaining the spatial qualities of the original architecture. It was a challenging construction project, implemented by its current owner and architect Babis Chiotis with the scope to provide luxury amenities and touches for our guests with the least possible interference to this ancient and traditional structure.
The villas’ revolutionary architecture and interior design embraces space and exudes style, with floors of smooth poured concrete, mosaic from Santorini’s beach black stones and walls crafted from the rocks of the mountain which is laying on the back of the villas. Fierce rocks emerge from the wall, while impressive ceiling vaults revealing the true nature of Santorini in its magnitude. Domes, arches, thick walls, small windows compose the distinguished vernacular complex geometry and form of the building. The morphology and the overall vernacular architecture of the building creates a challenging place to work on and compose an overall experience for vacation living with a unique combination of local and contemporary characteristics.
