Santorini Villas Rental Greece - Santorini Holiday Villa for Rent, Mansion Kiara Private Villa in Santorini (Megalochori)
Follow the narrow winding footpath from the square and you will reach the welcoming doors of Mansion Kiara. The Mansion is situated on a quite path on the quant village of Megalochori, with the vineyards in the distance. At the turn of the century the Mansion was serving as a winery and cellar. The original structure has been sensitively renovated, and has been restored to its original splendour, retaining the original layout and traditional features.
A barn-door leads you into the open-plan living space, affording a wonderful entertainment area. The smooth curves, alcoves and lighting of the minimalistic interior add to the unique atmosphere of staying there. An archway leads you into a corridor where the three bedrooms are. The comfortable master bedroom has wonderful view to the pool and the colorful garden of the Mansion. The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the corridor. A large comfortable vanity bathroom with tub is also along this corridor to serve the bedrooms. The smooth-edged carved interior provides a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days. A second comfortable bathroom with shower is accessible from the living area.
On the left side of the living area there is a well equipped traditional-style central kitchen. A wooden door exits directly to the courtyard. In the large courtyard of the Mansion the guests can relax on the sun beds, swim in the pool or enjoy epicurean meals on the outdoors dining area, shaded by a wooden pergola. From the courtyard, stairs lead up to the terrace where you can enjoy the view of the vineyards and the sea on the distance. This Villa can accommodate up to 6 guests. You could easily add two extra beds if necessary. Mansion Kiara provides a perfect base for those wanting to experience the many rhythms of the island.
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.
