Old Bakery cave house
- SQM 55
The old bakery of the village awaits just two minutes from Oia's central square, with a private entrance right on top of the stairs that lead to Armeni bay. Carved in the mountain with respect to the unique local architecture and in harmony with the sun-filled, wild volcanic beauty, the newly restored cave house recounts stories of tradition, heritage and style. The red pumice stones, antique marble floors and handcrafted wooden furniture, create the feeling of an authentic warm hospitality.
The 59m2 open plan cave house lays behind the wide historic wooden door. The square skylight in the middle of the central dome brings the aegean sunlight into the living room creating a bright, welcoming ambience.
The heart of the old bakery, the original round baking room, is now transformed into a cozy and unique looking dining area featuring Laskarina's favourite antique wooden table and chairs. The earthy red stucco and local pumice together with the hand picked colourful cushions complete this feel-good, inviting bohemian rotunda.
On the other side, the originally igloo-shaped area of the old secondary baking room, enhanced by a clean lined interior and organic forms offer a calming effect and create an aura of serenity. Stepping in, indulge yourself in the relaxing vibes of this room, as you sit comfortably and enjoy a good read. The built in couch of the room is equipped with a high quality mattress which can also be used as a single bed if needed. In the inner part of the cave house, the built-in beds, a double and a single, equipped with high quality mattresses, promise gentle comfort, free of any feeling of pressure on the body and enjoyable sleep.
Thereafter, in the sculpture formed bathroom, prevail the antique marble washbasin and CEA design bathroom fixtures, surrounded by the earth coloured, local stucco technique.
The kitchen is masterly separated in order to best preserve and not distort the original plan of the bakery. Closer to the bedroom, one can find a big, light blue Smeg fridge, a nespresso coffee machine and an electrical kettle. Next to the entrance, there is a Smeg oven, four ceramic hot plates, the stainless steel sink and all the kitchenware and cutlery.
In the exterior, as you step on the stone paved, made by hand floor, take a moment to grasp the superb, unobstructed view of the sea, the volcano and the breathtaking caldera in your very own private veranda. Breath in and unwind in one of the deck chairs under the bright Greek sun. This is definitely an unforgettable, life-changing experience.
