Wonderful! Blue and White, the colours of Greece. A house in the rock. Is it a appartment? YSL and best wishes - Bernd
Hi Bernd! Thank you for the honourable YS!
This is an apartment in a hotel. Oia village is the view it offers to the caldera and the volcano.
The cave houses, were nestled in the rocks of the cliffs and one could see only their arched entrance. In this way, their habitants, managed to hide themselves from pirates.
The buildings were seriously damaged in 1956 due to the earthquake, new buildings erected again at the same position given that the view they offer is incomparable.
Regarding the architecture of Oia hotels, most of them have remained consistent to the architectural style. So, guests can accommodate in luxurious cave houses.
thnak you, Joli for kind explanation. Nest - Bernd
Bernd - You are very kind! :) On surface the houses were two or three storey high - be beautiful view for everyone and there is an earthquake risk. Kind regards, Joli
