About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (sleeps 6), Outdoor Jacuzzi

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.

The villa owner has preserved during the renovation the historical architectural elements of the early 20th century construction and added all modern amenities (WiFi, Satellite TV, DVD player, I –pod/ I - phone deck station, air – condition etc).

'One of Europe's best holiday homes' according to The Sunday Times (Feb 2011)

Why Eleftheria Andreoulakou chose Santorini

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).

Petite villa charmante dans le village de Megalochori

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré cette villa. Elle est située à l'entrée du village de Mégalochori. À quelques minutes à pied se trouve une boulangerie, des restaurants et un mini market. Nous pouvions nous rendre en voiture (essentiel pour se déplacer sur l'île avec des enfants) et revenir dans le calme en soirée puisque Megalochori est très peu touristique. Nous avions un petit Jacuzzi qui a été apprécié autant par les enfants que les adultes car il peut faire très chaud à Santorini. Nous avons pu nous promener dans le village et voir vraiment comment les grecques vivent. Ester la responsable de la villa sur place est très sympathique et a été disponible pour répondre à nos questions. La villa était propre et bien entretenu par le personnel. Nous recommandons cette villa qui a beaucoup de charme avec sa petite cours intérieure.

Great Location & a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place we came accross at our last days of our vacation in Greece. We didn,t make any reservations prior to our arrival in Santorini and a local at a neaby bakery suggested to us that we stay at Villa Ivi. The Villa is a hidden gem. Clean, romantic and very picturesque. It has a certain ambience that one would expect from a famous greek destination. It wasnt touristic or fake. We felt part of the locals and their life there. At a walking distance there were many restaurants and we enjoyed eating there. The staff at Vila Ivi was very friendly and helpful. Very happy about the whole experience.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed there for four nights with my wife and our baby girl. We had high expectations of this place and we weren't disappointed. It was a lovely home with clean and spacious rooms. The location was amazing. Located in a picturesque small village with a beautiful square and various restaurants to visit. Eleftheria was helpful with restaurant recommendations, things to do and arranging a car rental. The staff was attentive, yet not intrusive. We felt taken care off and enjoyed our time time the most out of our entire trip to Greece. We would love to go back one day.

Villa Ivy is located in Megalochori, one of the most beautiful and traditional villages of Santorini. Sheltered from the Cycladic winds, the traffic – free white streets of Megalochori provide a peaceful and sought after alternative to the busiest tourist centers of Santorini, Fira and Oia. Megalochori’s location in the center of the island is the ideal springboard to enjoy the attractions of Santorini Island, the famous sunset, the wineries, the local cuisine and the sea.

It’s a common secret that large parts of the local population chooses Megalochori as their permanent resident and refer to it as a “safe harbor”.
