Wow just Wow
What can I say that hasn't been said already!
The owners have obviously spent a great deal of care and attention ensuring the winery has been restored to amazing detail and ensuring that everything is there to make your holiday the best it can be.
We were a family of 9 and not once were we treading each other's toes, there are lots of areas you can escape to if you need, however for us the amazing pool was the centre of fun you want on a holiday.
There is so much to do and see at Santorini, for us the highlights were an amazing catamaran trip which the villa manager Iro sorted for us. This was a half day trip all food and proper beer and wine included and the boat to ourselves.
I would also recommend the walk from Fira to Oia, make sure you wear sensible shoes, go early in the day, take water and a camera the views are absolutely stunning.
In terms of eating the best taverna we went to which is walking distance from the Winery was Marmita, the service was amazing with free Raki and most importantly the food was the best we had certainly I would recommend the moussaka.
Lastly I have to say the local bakery is to die for, we walked there every morning for Croissant and pain au chocolate and then ice cream in the afternoon, what a life!
I very rarely give 5 stars but if I could I would award 6
What a find! This leap of faith more than paid off. Idyllic, relaxing and beautifully restored by the present owners with an eye for detail and historic preservation. Easy to get to all the island has to offer with fantastic advice from the villa manager on hidden gems. Can't recommend this diamond enough. Loved it and will definitely be back sooner rather than later.
Finery at the Winery
What a place! Superbly refurbished, with all the creature comforts. Very tidy, and centrally located with easy access to the whole island. Large yet cosy, and quiet. Super staff/management.
Awesome base to explore an authentic Greek island
It was the most stunning Villa I've ever stayed in, we absolutely loved it. The house obviously sleeps more then the two of us, so it was a bit spacious, but that made it all the more luxurious! We felt spoiled and pampered! One week was almost not enough time to try out all the different seating areas- terraces and little nesting corners in and around the house. If you do happen to stay there with as many people as beds you can still very easily find quiet time spread out over the different levels. The swimming pool with the "shaded throne" is devine ❤️ This side of the island feels quite authentic and unspoiled with loads of nice walks in the area. But you can also very easily get to the more bustling tourist areas, wether via a long walk or the easy bus connection. Panos - the house manager- was always available for questions or help with organising and much fun to chat to! Enough choices of restaurants and bars on walking distance! We will most definitely try to get back here at some point!
Characterful, spacious villa
Plenty of room for an extended family of 11 (including 5 children). Pool isn't very big and a parasol would be handy for having 2 babies with us but the villa is well equipped and Panos (the villa manager) couldn't have been more helpful in arranging transport, a sunset cruise and bringing us a bottle of champagne after we got married.
An amazing prooerty permitting the perfect Santorini experience
The Winery is a beautiful property located a 5 minute walk from the pictureque typical Santorini village of Megalachori. Our extended family spent 8 idyllic nights here in July 2017. It is very spacious and extremely well fitted out, with numerous areas allowing for privacy if needed but also with large enough eating areas for everyone to come together. Our kids loved the pool and feeding the mules in nearby fields. To get to Thira and Oia we had fun quads to drive along spectacular coastal roads, but were always happy to come back to the tranquility of the winery. We did day trips out and one highlight was a day sailing, which for some was the best day of their lives! Panos the villa manager was extremely helpful and guided us in all we wanted to do while on the island. Perfect accommodation for a perfect Greek island holiday.
Car, scooter and push bike rental can be arranged if required.
