ABOUT CAVELAND:

The history of Caveland is 300 years old. This complex was originally used as a winery. The grapes were collected from local vineyards that are surrounding it. Afterwards they were mashed in a well that is located at today’s reception. Finally, the wine was stored in the caves that are now converted into cave rooms.
This place was later known as a tennis club and it was in the late seventies one of the first hotels in Santorini. It was refurbished and re-opened in 2011 as a boutique hostel. It offers a mixture of private and dorm-style accommodation. The property is a 15 000 sqm large with a big pool, numerous gardens and hidden corners. It is in a picturesque village of Karterados just next to Santorini’s capital Fira town. Karterados village lies on the main bus route connecting Fira with the south of the island. Therefor the location is ideal for those who want to explore the island and still be away from the crowds.
