Santorini Cave House

This spectacular holiday house on the island of Santorini, Greece, is perched high on a steep hillside away from the surging tourist crowds, and has a mind-blowing view of the Aegean Sea and the volcanic landscape. Dug entirely into the volcanic rock without any foundations, the minimalist retreat designed by Kapsimalis Architects, consists of a living room, a dining area, a kitchen, a main bedroom and two bathrooms oriented towards to the view. The use of sliding, floor-to-ceiling glass doors also makes it possible for the interior areas to seamlessly blend into the exterior terrace which includes a sunbathing deck and an infinity pool.
