I am Alexandra and I will be happy to welcome you to my family's holiday houses in Skyros and Santorini. We have spent many joyful holidays there throughout the years. I love the sea and the sun and I love travelling whenever I get the chance.
Why Alexandra chose Vothonas
To live an authentic experience in a Greek traditional village in a traditional Santorinian cavehouse!

Unique and Cozy
We were so impressed with the Cave home. It is exactly like the pictures, but better!! It is hard to describe how unique and beautiful this place is from any vacation home we've stayed in all our travels. The owners, sisters Emma, Alex and Anna (off site) were so gracious and accommodating during our stay .
You will not be disappointed . A must try.
Thank you again
Rob and Eleanor Canada
Note: if you rent a car , which is a good idea to see ethe island, make it a small one. Not much space in the parking lot.:)
What an amazing property and hosts. Alexandra and Emmy are gracious and helpful hosts, as was the rest of thier family. The local residents of Vothonas were equally as welcoming and kind. The house itself is well appointed for the perfect home away from home. The property is beautiful, clean, and represented well in the property photos. We enjoyed dining alfresco on the patio in the evening, and coffee on the rooftop terrace in the mornings. The village is as picturesque as you would imagine, so do take time to walk the village and enjoy the lack of crowds.
The cave house is in a traditional village, away from the busier tourist areas, but centrally located on the island to make all areas easily accessible. I do agree with prior reviews that a car or transportation is a must; however, most tour groups (we did a wine tour and a catamaran tour) offer pickup at a nearby hotel which is also walking distance from the property.
Thank you again Alexandra and Emmy. "The girls" throughly enjoyed our stay, and I know I will most certainly be back.
Amazing space; very remote
Lovely lovely space and truly enjoyed the charm of this one of a kind home. ONLY one item that I would say was disappointing - the location as it relates to the city and other high lights of Santorini. A car or a mode of transportation is a must for the bus system in Santorni is overworked. We were so fortunate that we had an amazing driver Nikos that gave us pointers and helped us get to where we need to go . Otherwise we would have felt stranded. A better understanding of transportation a MUST that needs to be added to the description and finding the place is very difficult. Again Nikos came to our rescue!
We loved the property! It was very quiet. I could see myself having meals on the patio. Great proximity to the beach. We only had a short stay but were very happy. It is a bit out of the way but Nick was amazing at getting us to the hot spots on the island. I would definitely recommend! Also would recommend hiring Nick during your stay!!
Quiet cozy cave home
Excellent time for family of six. Appreciated having transportation arranged. Made it very easy and hassle free for us. Also great to have a supermarket within close walking distance. Would definitely return, and recommend to others.
Alexandra met us at her cave home after we were picked up at the airport by a transfer she coordinated. Despite it being 1:30am, she spent time with us & told us about the home, things to do & see on the island & recommendations for the restaurants. The home is breathtaking, unique and has all conveniences or a modern home with a feel of peace and rejuvenation! Kitchen is well stocked and grocery market is close by. We got around the island on ATVs, which were instrumental to getting around the island and safer than a car - if you get a car I would recommend a small car. We spent time touring Faro, went to Ia for a sunset and dinner, went to the monestary & lookouts and spent a morning on Sunset Oia catamaran - gorgeous! The catamaran went to the hot springs red and white beaches, snorkelling and we had a delicious lunch on board! Alexandra coordinated all of these tours for us and every person/experience was Extraordinary! We so appreciated the bottle of wine as a welcome so we could have a drink upon our arrival. The patio & rooftop terrace were so lovely and added to our experience when we were at the home. Much rejuvenation! Vothonos & the cave home provide such an experience but are close enough to everything else you would like to see. We went out dancingbone evening to Two Brothers bar in Faro & again had an incredible experience. We were incredibly active but also had some soul rejuvenation time!
