This location is absolutely amazing. Definitely for those who are ready to walk and explore Santorini. It's about a 5 minute walk from the parking area to the residences. Downtown Oia with all the food and shopping is about a 15 or 20 minute walk....More

About the neighbourhood
During the 18th and 19th century, the village of Oia experienced the prosperity of the naval merchandise. In Finikia lived the farmers who worked in the valley and vineyards, but also the captains of Oia had their summer homes and canavas.

Since the mid 1970's slowly and with patience, new residents began to return and to reconstruct the old houses on permanent or holiday homes. Today, Finikia is a small, well-preserved traditional village now united with Oia with just 10 minutes walking distance. You can stay and experience the feeling of tranquility and authenticity, visiting the beautiful beaches and vineyards in the vicinity of th...
