A haven on the northwest tip of Santorini, the Canaves Oia Hotel unlocked its doors back in 1985. This was when Anna Chaidemenos and Yiannis thought of transforming the caves used to store wine.

Later, after twenty-five years, Alexandros and Markos, known for "independent minds," took over. They invested their efforts in enhancing the experiences of guests. As a result, the Canaves Oia brand is a family-led business. The members involve themselves in daily meetings, operations, and even meeting guests.
