Aegagros Caldera Houses
Ornos, Santorini

THE SPIRIT OF AEGAGROS CALDERA HOUSES Aegagros Caldera Houses is a complex of 5 traditional Villas and one Cave Studio at one of Santorini’s most beautiful spots: the outskirts of the picturesque village of Megalochori, right at the middle west of Santorini at the caldera's eyebrow. Built in a 5.000sq metre vineyard, surrounded by trees and beautiful gardens away from hotels and touristic attractions it provides a real retreat. Reflecting on authentic Santorinian living, we offer a kind of stay unique in Santorini. Here, you will experience Greek hospitality, “philoxenia” as narrated by Homer: sincere, heart-warming, generous and in the pursuit of Good and Joyful. 

THE VILLAS The Villas used to be our family’s own houses where we used to enjoy the endless Greek summer. They used to be our haven, designed to comfortably accommodate our big family in an eclectic environment. The Villas have now been renovated to cater for the needs of Santorini visitors who seek a home away from home feel, while experiencing the subtler, but more telling characteristic, of Santorini Island.

From the vaulted ceilings, plaster walls, hand made tiles, volcano stone tables and marble sinks to the white laced linen and the antique furniture, Aegagros Caldera Houses in Santorini, speaks of days of slow, authentic, blissful living. You will relish the spectacular view to the Aegean Sea and the Santorini volcano from you balcony or terrace, as all Villas offer unobstructed view. Pretty gardens and vineyards embrace every step you make. The numerous terraces, private or shared are the ideal spot to start the day with our infamous homemade breakfast with local Santorini products.
