Nisyros - Caldera I

1 Bedrooms | Sleeps 2

Volcanic hideout
rates from 1,050 €


This atmospheric residence occupies a privileged spot in the traditional hilltop village of Emporeios. In just two minutes, guests can reach the highest point for a sweeping view of the island’s still active – but not erupting – volcano. Protected as a site of special architectural value, Emporeios extends around the ruins of a Venetian fortress, inside which stands a 13th century church. The elevated position in the stone-built settlement affords breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding countryside, while its convenient location makes it is an ideal base for exploring the rest of the island. Cool in summer and cosy in winter, the residence offers a truly unique living experience all year round.


Caldera I is the downstairs part of the two-storey residence and can be rented either separately or together with the upper level (Caldera II). Both levels have private entrances and courtyards with magnificent sea views. Built around 1850, the residence was completely restored in 2015 with respect for local architectural traditions, using only eco-friendly primary materials, especially the local volcanic rock that gives the house not only its special character but also its affectionate descriptive name, Melanopetra (“black stone”). The uncluttered interior spaces are characterized by minimalist white interiors.
The lower level, covering 60 m2, has an open-plan sitting and sleeping area, separated from other spaces by a low arch. The double bed is next to the fireplace, on a slightlyraised level, while the comfortable corner lounge can be used to host an extra guest. The well equipped kitchen features built-in wooden furniture, including a small dining table, and an old wood-fired oven. The spacious, sculpture-like bathroom has a polished cement shower unit and attractive travertine sinks.
Serving as a natural extension of the interior, the outdoor area blends harmoniously into the stone-built environment. Laid-out on different levels, it has comfortable seating and a dining space in the shade of a towering almond tree. Flower beds planted with aloe, lavender and thyme unify the yard with the surrounding nature, while the sea view is both stunning and inspiring.
