    Welcome home to Fava!
    An unforgettable experience. Our goal is to make you feel that Fava is your own home and Santorini, your island.
    Fava Residence, which opened in 2013, is a splendid and unique captain house of the mid 19th century, located at the highest point of the traditional village of Finikia. The architects and owners of the property, Thomas, Dora and Antonis Gavalas, started the rebuilt in the 1980's with love and care and they transformed it into a spacious and modern, though with respect to the original traditional form, summer house. Today, the building offers its hospitality in a fully furnished self-catering Villa of 184 sq. meters with a sense of 19th century history combined and harmonized with modern amenities and services, located in the heart of the most picturesq...

This Villa is in Finikia village, right next to Oia, Santorini. Finikia is a beautiful village set on a little hill ....cobbled pathways and steps through the village lead to the villa. The villa has beautiful views of the white and blue santorini landscape. It had all amenities, the only thing missing was a washing machine:(. The inside was a mix of modern and cave style house - we really loved it.

The walk to Oia village was about 7 - 10 minutes. Oia, I thought was the most beautiful town in Santorini, even better than Fira, its capital. We spent a lot of our time in Oia, walking through the Caldera and tremendously enjoyed every minute of it.

The other highlights of our trip were a trip to Black beach & Red beach and a boat excursion around the caldera - I highly recommend them all. Black beach - has black pebble like rocks and red beach has red rocks - both a by product of the volcanic ashes. A lot of fun as instead of the sand, these pebble like rocks did...

We thoroughly enjoyed the Fava Residence and the host was most cordial and helpful. Our arrival time was delayed a couple of times, but the host was most accommodating and met us when we arrived. There were 10 of our family staying here and everyone loved it. The interior was clean and beautiful, the beds very comfortable and the bathrooms immaculate. We especially enjoyed the front terrace with tables and chairs where we had our breakfast most mornings. Sitting under the arbor with grapes growing overhead and hanging down was a nice touch to the ambience. In short, it was a perfect place for our Santorini stay.

I will add one cautionary note for elderly people or people with mobility issues. It is a hefty and uneven climb of a few hundred meters with lots of slopes and steps from the parking area to the house.
