Christa's place is probably my most favorite place to stay anywhere in Europe. She is the hostess with the mostess and a very wicked old lady to boot, only matched by myself. Forgotten how many visit we have had, but she is now a wonderful friend. We always stay in number 2 room because it is closest to the steps up and the public patio down and of course to Christa herself. Also I love the way I can lie in bed and still see the Caldera. I will be very sad if and when you retire from Aris Caves. ... Much love Libby read hotel review

As fan of the greek islands, we are the 2. time on the island thira staying. This holiday, which we as a gift from our daughter got, exceeded everything has ever seen. Actually you can the impressions and experiences not really widergeben. Particular emphasis should be on affectionate handling of Christa with magnificent piece of thira, which you with aris as their own name may. Every angle is lovingly decorated and with the help of the caring caretaker-couple fostered and maintained. This holiday will remain unforgettable for us. A real dream vacation! Thank you read hotel review

After 32 years, we have our honeymoon to Greece repeatedly. An objective was oia on santorini, this time not as backpackers, but a little comfortable building with Christa in aris caves. It just couldn't have been nicer. Christa with their personal very good tips for the island, the really great, lovingly designed apartment and of course the location: quiet, only a few away from the hustle and bustle on days and the incomparable nice view of the Caldera. Dear people, if your plans, after santorin to travel, there are actually only one winner tip: aris caves! read hotel review

Austrian charm and greek hospitality at a beautifully situated place. High above the sea with excellent views over the Caldera south. Romantic sunrises and sunsets. Short way to the hauptgasse of oia. There restaurants and bars, as well as small supermarket (self-sufficiency) maintained kitchen. Everything recommendable, particularly the top room. Very well maintained, blooming plants on the central terrace. read hotel review

  • What the hotel offers
    Years ago, pumice-stone miners found caves on the island of Santorini which archaeologists identified as ancient housings and antique lodgings. Lateron, a local craftsman manufactured pack-saddles and held his cattle there. These caves, carved into the rocks of the volcanic island of Santorini, are the base of the „Aris Caves”, a small and intimate aparthotel established in 1993. By enjoying holidays at „Aris Caves“ at Oia, Santorini you may experience one of the globe most unique volcano islands, with its history based upon six millenniums and said to be bound to the dreams of ancient Atlantis.
