The Luxury Travel Book - Luxury apartment & villa accommodation to rent in beautiful destinations
Santorini, Greece · Villa · 2 Bedrooms · 4 - 6 people
The peaceful little village of Megalochori is a much sought after and appreciated holiday base from which to enjoy the many attractions of this unique island. Only 9 km from the busy town of Fira, it is another world and an ideal holiday base for those who want to relax and enjoy the many attractions of Santorini from a different perspective. Built in the mid-19th century, Mansion Sophia was inhabited by one of the feudal landlords of the island at that time. These merchants and landlords became wealthy, exporting the unique Vinsanto wine, which the island still produces. Megalochori had a particularly strong link with Odessa in Russia and many of the church bells which still toll in the village today are from Russia.
The villa rental in Santorini is situated just a short stroll from the central village square with its pretty churches and picturesque Venetian bell towers. The village, with its winding cobbled pathways, is free of traffic. Access to the house is through imposing large wooden entrance gates into a secluded and very pretty private courtyard, complete with a traditional Moroccan-style swimming pool (3.4 x 5m, depth 1.55m). There is also an outdoor dining table and chairs in the very pretty courtyard off the kitchen, with barbecue, as well as four poolside loungers and an umbrella.
The house has been beautifully renovated to provide all modern amenities, yet retaining the character and style of the original house. Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious living and dining area with superb high vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors. The two bedrooms lead off from either side of the central living room and both have air conditioning. There is a sofa-bed in the living room which can be made up for extra guests on request. The kitchen has an original stone arch which now serves as a washing up and preparation area. Further amenities include heating, satellite TV and DVD, I-pod with docking station and wi-fi internet access.
