This residence can be best described as a villa with three distinct living areas, the east, west and main canava, all with separate courtyard entrances for better privacy. Two extra foldout beds possible.
The west canava can accommodate 2 persons in a specious bedroom with queen size bed, a sitting area with a wooden table for two, fully equipped kitchen and a cave style en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower. There is a table and summer umbrella in the courtyard offering lounging with magnificent view of the pool, clear blue sky and the sea filled volcano caldera.
The east canava can accommodate up to 4 persons in two bedrooms, a sitting room and kitchen with view to the pool and the island caldera.
The master bedroom is at the back carved into the rock with a romantic queen size platform canopy bed, secluded as a separate living area with its own indoor windows and door, in a fashion typical of traditional santorinian houses. With all windows open the bedroom can enjoy light from the outside and a view into the blue while closing the inner windows and door provides maximum privacy.
The second bedroom is at the front end and has a double bed that gives direct view to the pool and clear blue sky just from the edge of its pillows. Both rooms have access to a spacious sitting room with a wooden table for four and a fully equipped kitchen and they share a large cave style bathroom with bathtub and shower. There is a table and summer umbrella in the courtyard as well as loungers for sunbathing by the pool.
The main canava can accommodate up to 6 persons in 3 separate bedrooms and is built in two levels.
A very spacious dining room shed with ample natural light welcomes our guests with its large monastery style table which can comfortably sit a party of 12. The kitchen is carved in the rock, at the far end of the room and is designed as a separate area with easy access to the dining premises. Two vaulted ceiling bedrooms can be found on the ground level, each separate with its own en-suite bathroom. One is especially large room at the further back end carved deep into the volcanic rock, with a platform king size bed, dressing area with mirror and a large cave style bathroom with bathtub and shower. The second bedroom is a comparatively smaller yet spacious room, with double bed, cozily snug under its own dome and has its en-suite bathroom with walk-in shower.
All our bedrooms are meticulously restored cave style rooms with high domed ceilings in keeping with the traditional island architecture.
All our bathrooms are luxury cave style indoor rooms that close with a door separating them from the bedrooms. They are decorated elegantly and built using an old traditional Santorinian technique for the walls and floors in order to retain an atmosphere of authentic Santorinian residence. They are all equipped with standard modern bathroom amenities, hair drier and hot air condition and ventilation systems. There is hot water available at all times.
The villa is perched on the rock cliff of Oia, 300 meters above sea level with unparalleled views of the volcano, deep blue sea and the island of Santorini itself. It is situated next to the famous hotel Katikies in the finest neighborhood of Oia. Oia retains the strictest laws about architecture and even electric wires are mandated to be underground while cars is only allowed in the outskirts. You can stay in all day and lounge by the pool or take a walk to the heart of Oia stroll by the charming little shops, cafes, artist workshops, village bakery and sweet shops. When you reach the tip of Oia you can stay and be charmed by the beautiful sunset by the castle ruins or if you feel restless continue 220 steps down the cobblestone route to Ammoudi fishing village for a swim and fresh fish.
This summer holidays wake up each day in a setting of unique physical beauty and enjoy a quiet stay in surroundings retaining a true traditional architecture and Cycladic atmosphere of the old times. Enjoy Grand Canava!...Read more

Santorini was enchanting. The scenery was breathtaking. The Grand Canava was perfect. Plenty of room to spread out for a large group,. The breakfast was a great start to our day. Everything we needed was conveniently near. Roxanne and her staff were helpful and friendly.

Lost in the captivating whites of the island, Grand Canava offered an unforgettable stay, we awoke on the beautiful scenery overlooking the volcano with the delicious aromas of traditional greek home-made breakfast and enjoyed the warm welcome of our lovely host Roxanne and her team. She made sure to make us feel right at home, this made saying our goodbyes a little harder. Grand Canava was equipped with all amenities necessary, the rooms have a lovely traditional feel, some cycladic and some rustic chic, each had their own character and flavor to them. The staff made sure they did their very best to accommodate our needs and provide us with the support to book our leisure activities and reserve in best dinner spots. A definite unforgettable stay, that we will repeat in the near future.

Booked out the 3 canavas with 9 other adults and 4 infants. The owner was extremely helpful with arranging everything for the infants prior to arrival. I've always been sceptical of online pictures of hotels/villas as they never truly reflect reality but when we saw the place all those fears were dismissed.
After a day or two it was evident that location of the villa was ideal for older ppl or those with kids as it was near very close to the main pathway in Oia. I can only imagine the difficulty in dragging pushchairs up and down numerous flights of stairs every day had we stayed elsewhere.
It was particularly hot when we went so the the pool (over 7ft deep) which was always well cleaned and not saturated with chlorine was a godsend.
Would definitely recommend this villa to those who want to enjoy all that is santorini

Where do I start... me and my husband were married in Santorini a few days before and decided to stay here for our honeymoon. It was perfect.
The owner organised our transfer and was very hospitable. She gave us advice on days out, restaurants etc.
The villa itself is stunning. We stayed in the 1 bedroom villa and as a wedding gift we were upgraded to the 2 bedroom villa. The pool overlooks the ocean we spent a lot of time there as the views were magical watching boats go by. If you walk down the promenade, you will find lots of tourists arriving to watch the sunset in the early evening. Great experience, we took a little picnic everynight.
At night the pool and terrace is all lit up and is lovely and romantic to sit outside with a bottle of wine.
There are plenty of supermarkets, restaurants and bars nearby. Everything is actually a few minutes walk away
We had a fantastic honeymoon, thanks Grand Canava we will be back xxx

this is a looovely little but beautiful hotel.
it is very clean and the owners are wonderful people. the location is ideal as you get to have the magnificent caldera view without walking all the way down the little narrow alleys (which is great to do if you are in the mood to). the pool is not big but theres no need for a bigger one and the jacuzzi in the susnet with the view and a coctail is all you can ask for. you can spend all day in the house and still enjoy your vacation!

Well, although I expected to find a very nice vacation place after looking at the site and the various promotional material the owners send me during our booking arrangements, I must honestly admit that words fail to contain the actual sense of wonder the first time you step in the place.
The view is breathtaking, the rooms just right (not small, not huge), everything was squeaky clean and the service courteous, professional and always there.
I am not accustomed to offering reviews of the places I visit, but well, Grand Canava is really worth it. Santorini is a great place to visit (Oia and Imerovigli in particular) and places like this one is what turns a good holiday into an awesome once in a lifetime experience (well, not once-in-a-lifetime, cause I'm definately going there again)
