Beautiful villa in stunning, private setting
After spending two days in lovely but very busy Oia, this home was a beautiful change of pace. The pool and flower strewn patio were lovely and the village of Megalochori was charming and quiet. Jackie provided us with everything we needed and offered recommendations for activities to enjoy. The rental car allowed us to explore island highlights such as beaches (Red Beach) and Pyrgos (the view from Franco’s cafe after 6 pm is breathtaking and allows a birds eye view
of the island). Our favorite restaurant of our stay on Santorini was Metaxi Mas—be sure to make a reservation and ask to be seated on the lower outdoor patio for a beautiful sunset view of the interior part of the the island that some may miss!
Mansion Sophia is a beautiful and quiet oasis close enough to Oia and Fira but in the nice quiet little town of Megalachori close to the best wineries and beaches and within walking distance of wonderful wineries and restaurants. The accommodation itself is wonderful with a lot of character, a great rooftop for taking in sunrise and sunsets and a wonderful pool and lounging area. Mansion Sophia was immaculately clean and the staff was very helpful with arranging a catamaran tour (highly recommend) and all other matters. We hope to visit again one day!
thank you so much for the kind words!
It was a true pleasure to have you in Mansion Sophia and we hope to see you back soon!
Magnifique et mémorable séjour
Le service est bien pensé pour un séjour parfait et sans tracas. Transfert, voiture de location à la maison, conciergerie, ménage chaque jour.
Takis, Jackie et Bukuria ont été accueillants, dévoués et adorables.
La maison est magnifique et pleine de charme. Située en plein coeur, à notre avis, du plus beau village de Santorini. Megalochori est un village typique, élégant, avec peu de touristes. Vous trouverez une boulangerie, vignoble, bons restaurants à quelques pas et épiceries tout près. Les habitants sont sympathiques. Vraiment bien situe pour rayonner et visiter l'ile facilement.
Nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'ambiance paisible, chaleureuse et luxueuse, l'excellente play liste, la literie, les peignoirs, les éléments de décors bien choisis, les électro Smeg, le petit bbq au charbon. (parfait pour les grillades et la pieuvre!) L'équipement de cuisine est de base mais fonctionnel pour cuisiner presque tout.
Côté confort, seul bémol, la gestion de l'eau chaude à mettre en marche à chaque utilisation (douche trop chaude ou trop froide).
Les jardins, la piscine sont aménagés et paysagés avec goût. C'est un endroit parfait pour la relaxation, en amoureux ou en famille.
Nous y avons passé la première semaine de novembre et contrairement à nos attentes, la température nous a permis de profiter amplement des chaises longues et de la piscine et nous avons pu visiter l'ile sans souffrir de la chaleur parfois accablante à certains moments de l'année. Nous avons aimé cette période du début de la basse saison.
Somme toute, une expérience fabuleuse et mémorable dans une maison de charme, l'une des plus belles du village, nous sommes heureux d'avoir fait un si bon choix.
thanks so much for the kind words!
It was a privilege to have you as guest in our villa and we hope to see you again in the future!
A beautiful authentic villa in a traditional village with all the home comforts you need - in aficionados to the excellent correspondence with the management we were greeted by Nicholas and taken from the airport and met by a friendly Jackie to guide us around the home and be given great tips for our stay - would highly recommend and had an amazing stay !
Thanks so much for the kind words! It was a privilege to have you in our villa!
Beautiful villa in picturesque little village
We had a wonderful family holiday here. The villa was lovely, especially the pool, where we spent most of our time. Everything ran really smoothly and all the people we met were really helpful (transfer driver, housekeepers, check-in rep). The villa is situated on a quiet side street, but within a moment you're in a quaint village square, with wonderful restaurants and a beautiful old church. My husband visited the local bakery every morning for fresh bread and croissants. There was a supermarket within 5-10min drive too. The only negative was that our sons couldn't stand up in the pool (aged 4&6), which parents of young children may want to consider. Lovely, relaxing holiday.
Just a final word for families with young kids - there's not a whole lot for kids to do in Megalochori - Santorini is more geared to adults. That said, our boys were really happy playing in the pool, reading books and playing with a few toys we brought with us. However if your family are more into active days out, this might not be the place for you.
thanks so much for the kind words! It was our pleasure to have you in Mansion Sophia and hope to see you again soon!
Mansion Sophia June 2018
We stayed for three lovely nights at your beautiful property. The accommodations were first class, tasteful, and clean. Perfect for our family of four. We had an amazing trip to the island with perfect weather, beautiful skylight, and we settled in quite nicely to the relaxed vibe of Megalochori. Would definitely recommend this Mansion Sophia to anyone visiting Santorini looking for an easy, elegant get away. Thank you!
Dear Ron, thank you for your kind remarks! It was an absolute pleasure to have you in our villa and we hope to see you again soon!
The peaceful little village of Megalochori is a much sought after and appreciated holiday base from which to enjoy the many attractions of Santorini. Only 6 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.
Megalochori was inhabited by many feudal landlords of the island at the past. 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.
This traditional settlement has retained its charm and authenticity despite the rapid touristic development of Santorini. Its traffic-free cobblestone streets , its Venetian bell towers and its lovely square with the chic restaurants make Megalochori a première destination for the concerning visitor of Santorini.
