I travelled here with my family and two other families and it was the trip of a lifetime. The place was ideal for three families. The villa was broken into 3 and each section was impeccable. Simply beautiful... would recommend to anyone! No faults!

“Picture perfect”

My family and I stayed here in July 2014 and rented out the entire villa. It was perfection to wake up every morning and have the view that grand Canava offers as well as a homemade breakfast to compliment it. The owner lives directly above the villa so she is almost always available for any issues or questions you may have about the Villa itself or Oia.

Each room has its own bathroom and allows for each guest to feel like they have privacy while also offering a communal environment.

This is a hidden gem right off the main path in Oia! Don't miss staying here!!

Our stay at Grand Canava in Oia was magical. The villa is ideally located- near the pedestrian walkway and a small market but very private and serene. We were there with another family (11 of us in all) and the layout was perfect. Enough room for all of us to move around and plenty of space for the sumptuous breakfasts served to us every morning at the dining table for 12. The view from the pool of the caldera is one you will never forget. The owner/manager was very helpful and accommodating. She helped us make reservations, arranged for our laundry to be done and was never too busy for a question or inquiry. Truly a vacation of a lifetime.

“Beyond our expectations!”

Yassou! We planned a trip of a lifetime with family members and the Grand Canava Villa in Oia, Santorini far exceeded our expectations. While the other accommodations on the island tend to be more cave-like rooms, the six bedrooms at the Grand Canava were spacious, beautifully decorated, and exceptionally clean, maintained by daily staff who served a fabulous 'fit for a king' breakfast daily. The amenities included a pool overlooking the Caldera, dining room for meal gatherings and daily laundry service. The owner, Roxanne was available to meet our every need with wonderful recommendations for a most spectacular wine tour, dinner reservations with Bouzouki entertainment and a marvelous Catamaran experience. The VIlla is private and yet markets, restaurants and art galleries, were situated nearby. While others travel from elsewhere to view the sunset, the VIlla is within walking distance to a most marvelous sunset. We left the VIlla with "Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away". We are already planning our next trip to Grand Canava!

We had high expectations for this Villa and we were not disappointed. Our group of 12 rented the Villa for a week, and it was the most wonderful stay. The rooms were spacious and comfortable, the pool was sparkling clean and very well used by all, and the daily breakfast was perfect. We made our own lunches there daily with wine (sourced from the mini market just up the stairs and the bakery nearby). We had several friends join us for lunch and Roxanne was always accommodating. Oia is the best place to stay on the island, and the villa location was excellent, with easy access to the pedestrian area for shops and restaurants. We organised private buses to take us to Perissa and Perivogols Beach, and we had great days at Chilli Beach Club and JoJo's.

“Like living in a picture postcard”

As stated in al the previous reviews the facility, the staff, the breakfasts were incredible!

We stayed 2 weeks and Roxanne and staff could not be more attentive, supportive and unobtrusive in having our extended family get the maximum value and enjoyment we received.

The location was ideal as it is extremely close to the St. George bus stop on the Fira public bus. It was convenient to the neat market, bakery and ATMs are a few blocks away.

I did extensive research on fees for use of the ATM and determined that Eurobank is the most lenient in not charging fees and that only those of your native bank are invoked to provide the best daily Euro conversion. Also, make sure you have a credit card with a chip and with no currency translation fees!

One need's to use Trip Advisor, the SantoriniDave website, the Amazon book on Santorini to do the necessary homework to enjoy the vacation.

We discovered the "true" bakery (the one that had the best sugar donuts) and because we had an infant that needed a walk every morning we all devoured them as well as noticing that other stores were getting their bread and pastries for resell.

Roxanne suggested some excellent restaurants and was helpful in many ways. She also provided interesting conversation when she was asked about Greek life and politics.

We all felt that she became a pleasant addition of our family and allowed us to learn more about the Greek lifestyle.

All my children said it was the best vacation they ever had and are anxious to join us on our next vacation! Thanks to Roxanne, George and Mosa. (Not!, (:>))!!)

Thank you Roxanne for the multiple emails back and forth arranging our visit! When we finally met, you were more delightful than I could have imagined!
Oia is the perfect spot for an extended stay in Santorini. The most picturesque town, it is away from the hoards of day tourists that descend upon Thira in the summertime. And The Grand Canava is the place to stay in Oia. The villa and its views are gorgeous, the infinity pool is sparkling clean and inviting, and the patio is a perfect spot to take in the scenery. A few stairs away is a small market to buy drinks, snacks and wine to enjoy. The staff, Mosa and George prepare a beautiful, local breakfast every morning and keep the rooms neat and clean.
A perfect spot for families or larger groups. The beautiful shops and restaurants of Oia are all within walking distance of the villa. Roxanne is most helpful in providing suggestions for eating and activities.
You will not be disappointed in any way!!
