Thanks a lot for your feedback Patrea! Just to mention that this review was supposed to be under the Hector Caldera Nest Listing and not under the Hector Cave House (which is a villa + pool) You are welcome anytime in the future!

About the neighbourhood
Hector Cave house is situated in a very convenient location, right on the main path of Oia traditional settlement.
Within walking distance, visitors can reach all the highlights of Oia and wonder around picturesque shops, cozy restaurants and romantic caldera-view cafes. Also, the house lies a few steps from the old castle and the best viewing spot for the famous Oia sunset.

Although close to local activity, the house provides peacefulness and privacy, allowing guests to relax and enjoy the marvelous view from the terrace.
Getting around
Getting around the island is possible either by bus transport (5 min walking distance away from home is Oia Village central bus station), taxi or by renting a car or an ATV
