At the steam house, earthly colors, natural textures and simple elegance surrounded by a luxurious ambience, are a treat for all the senses.
Inside, the smooth plaster walls of the breezy rooms are Cycladic white with splashes of cheerful color, while the carefully selected antiques mingle with classic built-in traditional furniture, creating an idyllic setting. Outside, the stone brings serenity vibes to the private courtyard and the pool is silently calling for a cooling session after an adventurous day at the island. And after a magical sunset comes a perfect evening with a candlelit dinner near the fountain, under the starry sky, at your mood lightened home. Does it sound like a honeymoon? We think so.
At the turn of the century, this house operated as a “canava” a traditional winery and cellar, producing the Santorini signature sweet wine Vinsanto. Vinsanto is known all around the world and for centuries was among the island’s most lucrative businesses. In fact, before the Russian Revolution it was widely exported to Russia to be used as Holly Communion! Besides, the name its Venetian merchants gave it, comes from the word for wine, “vin” and the word for saint, “santo”.
At the steam house you can still see the sunken cylindrical troughs, used for Vinsanto’s distilling, now used as some beautiful lighting features. Although the house has been renovated, all the elements that tell the story of Santorini’s centuries of housebuilding tradition have been left untouched. Through the relics of this historic building, creative design and comfort emerged, creating a perfect accommodation experience that could please even the most demanding guest.
