On postcard-pretty Santorini, Mansion Sophia is a famous 19th century two-bedroom villa with morrocan private pool, large cobblestone courtyard and garden. It is located amid vineyards and pastel-painted lanes in the pretty village of Megalochori.

-One private transfer from/to port or airport is included in the price.

The space

The peaceful village of Megalochori makes a much sought after and appreciated alternative to the bustling and jostling of the busy city of Fira. Mansion Sophia, a rare find, is a just 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. The imposing large wooden entrance gates of Mansion Sophia conceal a secluded and pretty private courtyard, complete with the recent addition of a swimming pool. Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious lounge and dining area with its superb high vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors, adding warmth and character to the room. The two double bedrooms, one master and one smaller second bedroom, lead off from either side of the central living room. The master bedroom has a majestic four-poster double bed. One bathroom, with modern amenities, services both bedrooms. The well equipped kitchen has an original stone arch which now serves as a washing up and preparation area. The coup-de-grace is the lovely kitchen garden, perfect for enjoying alfresco meals under blue skies whilst absorbing the village atmosphere.

Mansion Sophia was built around the mid 19th century and inhabited by one of the feudal landlords of the island at that time. These merchants and land barons became wealthy exporting the unique Vinsanto wine the island still produces. Trade brought wealth and wealth brought the Mansion Houses. Megalochori had a particularly strong link with the town of Odessa in Russia. Many of the church bells which still toll in the village today are from Russia and have a very distinct clarity.

This Mansion is perfect for those ready to switch of their mobiles, put their feet up, sit back and enjoy Santorini from a different perspective. The tourist attractions, including Fira and Oia, are only a short drive away.

Great area to stay in away from the busy streets of Fira and Oia. The restaurant across from the small market and clothing store is very good, try the saganaki! The house was great and the pool was so relaxing. If you come in June like we did you'll want to bring bug spray and sunscreen! The house is very clean but we did get lots of bug bites (mesquitoes probably). I also highly recommend renting atv or vespas to get around the town. Once you get the hang of driving them they're a really fun option for seeing a lot of the island. Everyone was very helpful and made our stay one we'll never forget. Thank you.
