Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Thira (Fira)
5 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, 1 Half Bathroom, Sleeps 10.
Built in 1878, this beautiful traditional two storey Santorini Mansion is located in the heart of the picturesque village of Megalochori.
This is one of two Mansions in the portfolio that was once owned by one of the most powerful families on the island.
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 Vinsanto dessert wine produced was exported to Russia, where it was used by the Russian Orthodox Church for Holy Communion. Unfortunately, this all came to an end with the Russian Revolution which had a big impact on the wealth of families in this once flourishing village.
The original structure has been sensitively renovated. Restored to its original splendour, retaining the original layout and traditional features, the gracious proportions and weathered building materials speak for themselves.
Mansion 1878 consists of two spacious self - contained units with a shared pool. Sensuality abounds in tasteful decoration and hand picked antiques from the past.
From the village square a small winding road leads to the Mansion.
The large cobbled private courtyard, complete with pool is surrounded by potted shrubs and trees that are intimate in scale. A stone stairway leads up to the first floor with large terraces and panoramic views of the village on the horizon.
The house consists of a traditional, bucolic, well equipped kitchen, which leads into the large dining room with original wooden floors and vaulted ceiling, perfect for entertaining. A comfortable lounge, simple, yet aristocratic, adjoins the dining area.
The spacious master bedroom is comfortable, bright and airy, where fascinating plays on light take place. A staircase leads to a private landing and second large double bedroom. The bathroom with wood and stone features servicing both rooms, is resplendent."
