Mansion 1878 Megalochori, Santorini

Santorini Villas Rental Greece - Santorini Holiday Villa for Rent, Mansion 1878 Private Villa in Santorini (Megalochori)


Built in 1878, this graceful traditional two storey Santorini Mansion is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Megalochori. At the turn of the century the first floor would have been occupied by the family with the ground floor serving as the winery and cellar. The original structure has been sensitively renovated, and has been restored to its original splendor, retaining the original layout and traditional features. Mansion 1878 consists of two spacious self-contained units with a private pool and is tastefully decorated with fine antique pieces of furniture. From the village square a winding footpath leads you to the Mansion. Enter into the large cobbled private courtyard, complete with pool. A stone stairway leads you to the first floor with large terraces and panoramic views of the village.


Literally translated into "Big Village", which is a mere euphemism, this island settlement is known to have been populated since the middle of the 17th century. Host to the mansions of some of the most powerful families who inhabited the island, it is also famous for its sweet wine "Vinsanto", which is still exported all over the world. The architecture that resulted from the riches of its inhabitants truly stands out from every vantage point of the village.

Megalochori has withstood the gradual erosion of village life through rural depopulation as some of the island's largest vineyards situated here and thus continue to provide a livelihood to its inhabitants. Its lively community of permanent residents adds local flavour and charm to the village's narrow roads which in turn beg to be explored.

Peace and tranquility best describe one of the few traditional settlements on the island. Situated 9.5 kilometers from Fira, Megalochori is within easy reach of Akrotiri and many other beaches on the island. Megalochori presents a multitude of interesting faces, many of whom, you may well get to know during your stay.
