The story of Canaves Oia begins in 1985 when Yiannis and Anna Chaidemenos transformed 17th-century caves, once used to store wine, into designer-chic luxury hotel rooms.
Canaves Oia redefined luxury accommodation in Santorini with its all-white minimalistic concept. Starting with just two caves, the hotel eventually expanded into an 18-rooms property, the go-to hideaway for romantic couples and newlyweds. Canaves Oia Suites soon followed.
Twenty five years after their parents opened the doors to first Canaves property, Markos and Alexandros Chaidemenos took over the reign and took the brand even further. The result have been nothing short of extraordinary, gaining an influx of media attention and eventually, international awards.
Canaves Epitome opened its doors in May 2018 to rave reviews. Our agents love it for its location just outside the always-bustling Oia, in addition to having some of the chicest suites on the island perfect for families.
