We are located in Karterados, the first village you will pass when heading south from Fira town, the capital of the Santorini island. Karterados is about 5 minutes drive/25 min walk from Fira town. Coming from Fira town, port or an airport, please ask the bus or a taxi driver to stop you at the fork at Multimedia market/ Zotos bakery. Leaving Fira town behind you there you take the downhill road on your left and continue all the way down for about 5-7 minutes. You will pass a police station, a windmill, 2 mini markets. Still continue all the way downhill until you see 2 tennis courts, Caveland sign and vineyards. The Caveland sign is a small wooden sign that you will see on your left on your eye level.
If you prefer to avoid the walk during the heat of the day, please contact the reception for the options to organize for you a paid transfer. Note, in the early season the transfers might not be available. Caveland is a large property nested in the middle of an old vineyard and therefor its location is tucked away from the busy crowds of tourists.
To get to Karterados with a local bus is very easy, we are the second last stop before Fira town (island’s capital) of every bus coming from any location in the South of the island. If you take a local bus, you purchase your ticket inside the bus. The fare is €2.20 from Athinios port and €1.60 from Thira airport. These buses are scheduled in direct accordance with the ferry and plane schedules. They are operated by ‘KTEL’ and are typically a blue/green color. In Karterados you get of at ZOTOS bakery and then you just follow the walking instructions. Ask the driver to stop at Zotos in Karterados.
If you take a taxi, ask them to bring you to “tennis club”, which is the name CAVELAND used to have from the early 80’s and is well known to local taxi drivers. You should not pay more than €20 one way.
Renting a vehicle immediately upon arrival and drive yourself here is yet another option. Rental prices vary depending on vehicle model and rental agency, but you can expect a price between €20 and €40 per day.
