Imposing wooden gates conceal a pretty, secluded courtyard, complete with the recent addition of a small swimming pool (3.4m x 5m) and lounge chairs. There is also a small garden outside of the kitchen, equipped with a table and seating for al fresco meals. Built in the mid 19th century, this villa was inhabited by one of the feudal landlords of the island. Until 20 years ago, the villa was still occupied by one of the descendants of the same family. Refusing to allow modern technology in the house, she lived happily without electricity, collecting her water in the well after each rain. Now, however, the villa has been outfitted with all the modern conveniences-- but retaining the original structure and style of the house.
Ground Floor: Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious lounge and dining area with superb vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors. The well-equipped kitchen has an original stone arch which now serves as a washing up and preparation area. The kitchen has an oven, filter coffee maker, and toaster. The lovely kitchen garden is perfect for enjoying alfresco meals under blue skies while absorbing the village atmosphere. Two bedrooms lead off from either side of the central living room. One is the master bedroom, with a 180 cm king-size bed. The other smaller room has a 160 cm queen-sized bed. They share a bathroom with a sink, toilet, and open shower.

This villa is just a short stroll from the central square of Megalochori, a quiet, traditional village on an eastward-facing slope. This pedestrian village is the center of the island's wine production industry, so it's a great area to be if you like to go tasting. The main square is host to a couple of tavernas for eating out in local style. It is about 10 km away from Fira, the cliff-side town looking into the heart of the Caldera. One of Greece's most popular islands, Santorini has a fascinating geological history, as it is of volcanic origin. Throughout recorded history, parts of the island have dropped into the sea, while new islands have suddenly appeared off the coast! The island forms a crescent around the "Caldera," or cauldron-- the collapsed center of the volcano. It is an enviable view! Fira is the capital of the island, host to the Archaeological Museum. Its main streets are filled with shops, cafes, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs. That's right... Santorini is also famous for its thriving nightlife! Your choices for activities are almost endless... you can relax on red and black sand beaches, take a boat around the islands, hike around the cliffs, go shopping, or even take a ferry to other islands in the area.
