Villa IvI is a fully restored, historic cave house with an inner cobbled courtyard and an outdoor Jacuzzi. It is located in Megalochori with its Venetian architecture, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages of Santorini, just a short drive away from all the main touristic attractions. Built under the church of St. Anarghyri, with its wonderful bell tower, Villa Ivi is a charming retreat for two couples or a small family seeking a private haven to experience the traditional life of Santorini.
Prominent features are the high walls and the solid wooden entrance, built for privacy and safety against marauding pirates. Painted blue doors lead the guests into the private beautiful courtyard, with the stone built Jacuzzi, the comfortable sun beds and the built – in sofas, a real oasis of calm and tranquility in the hectic summer months.
The main house consists of the open – plan kitchen/ dining and living room area, the master bedroom, the walk – in closet and the large vaulted terracotta bathroom that makes for quite a romantic ambiance. In the guest house, with its own private entrance from the courtyard, is located the second master bedroom and a small charming en – suite bathroom.

Why Eleftheria Andreoulakou chose Megalochori
Villa Ivi can be appreciated as an accurate example of the island’s unique architecture. It is hewn vertically into the volcanic soil. Built areas are roofed by domes, or groin vaults in a kind of mould - cast structure. It is made of Santorini black stone and Terra Theraic (Theraic earth) that has insulating qualities and has proven to be an early example of bio climatic architecture (keeping rock-hewn houses cool in the summer and warm in the winter).
