Welcome to Lithiés Traditional
Homes on the majestic island of Santorini. The Skarpathiotis
Family has spent years designing and remodeling these homes
using their passion and knowledge of Santorini.
Each home has been custom decorated by Anita Skarpathiotis,
an art historian. Ideal for both couples and families, the
Lithies homes are flexible. Larger parties may rent multiple
homes to enjoy a piece of the island exclusively by themselves!
The term Lithiés (pronounced lee-thee-és) is
a convention of the Nobel laureate poet, Odysseas Elytis.
The Lithiés homes capture the spirit of the island,
echoing the poetic verse “dry stone walls (the Greek
word "lithiés") and sea waves hand in hand”
from Elytis’ The Axion Esti.
The houses are spacious grottos tunneled into the sheer multi
coloured cliffs of the caldera, their facade slightly protruding
from the edge of the cave. They appear to grow naturally out
of the rocky landscape, which is set against a sweeping expanse
of sea and sky. The homes are secluded, accessible via a stepped
walkway, yet are well integrated into the town of Firostefani.
Bordering the edge of a blue-tiled pool is a generous terrace
that links all three homes and offers sweeping views of the
caldera and the volcano.
