Very nice view - the kind that makes me want to look at and enjoy every detail. Do you know if it's all one single complex or a bunch of villas? Killer views, for sure, but it looks like the residents would have to hike up and down the hill to get home - no drives in sight, and almost no roads... Just walkways, it looks like. A good way to lose weight? :))

I do not know for sure, but I think the near complex with the pool is a hotel, and further away there are some individual villas mixed with larger complexes. No local roads on this side (the inside) of the caldera but there is one that runs along the rim near the top on the outside. I was told Oia was originally mostly caves dug into the pumice cliffs, some of which remain and are visible in this picture -- each household had three, one for people, one for livestock, and one for storage. I believe some of what look like buildings here are still facades into caves.
