Ikies (Oikies) Traditional Houses


Santorini, Greece


Ikies (Oikies) is a complex of ten luxurious self-catering traditional houses and studios perched on the edge of the caldera on the outskirts of the picturesque village of Oia in the northern part of the island of Santorini.

Architecturally inspired by the age-old traditional local houses which are carved out of pumice into the cliffs of the caldera, they are designed to make the visitor feel at home. The ten houses of the complex, each built on a separate level, cascade down the caldera cliff reaching the pool level at the bottom of the complex.


Each apartment has a private balcony, offering spectacular views over the caldera towards the volcanic islets and towards Oia village itself. The balconies are furnished with exterior use reclining futons, chaise-longues, director's chairs, and marble-topped tables, where our guests can sip relaxing long drinks under their umbrellas while enjoying the sunset. The houses offer romantic privacy and are the ideal place to unwind. Each house is furnished in the simple Cycladic style and the décor respects local aesthetics, tradition and colour.


The houses at Ikies combine traditional architectural features such as vaulted ceilings, painted concrete floors, traditional doors and windows with modern comforts such as air-conditioning, satellite TV, internet access and fully equipped kitchenettes. Each of our houses is named after a profession associated with Santorini and decorated with furnishings, objects and artwork relating to the respective profession.


There are three types of houses:

Suites: Each of the four suites is comprised of two separate rooms, the bedroom with a king-size bed and the living room in which the traditional sofas can comfortably be used as single-beds. Our suites can each accommodate up to six guests.

Maisonettes: Each of our three maisonettes is developed on two-levels. The king-size bed in the loft offers a spectacular view onto the caldera while the traditional sofas in the ground floor living room can comfortably be used as single beds. Our maisonettes can each accommodate up to four persons.

Studios: Our three studios have one main bedroom with a queen-size bed. Our studios can each accommodate two persons.




The beauty of the surroundings at IKIES is only surpassed by our heartfelt hospitality and high level of service. Guest transfers can be arranged from the airport or port while our staff will provide luggage service from the adjacent parking facility. Continental breakfast is served to each house's private terrace while our guests can enjoy relaxing drinks or long iced-coffees from our bar throughout the day but especially during the world-famous Oia sunset with its dramatic colours.
