Guestbook comments from the manager

A group of us recently stayed here for a week and the service provided to us was top-drawer. We were extremely impressed with our concierge Jackie, who was always available, extremely helpful and made our stay very comfortable. I must also commend the daily maid service which was very thorough.



The villa is located in the sleepy village of Megalochori which is away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy places which are all within easy reach. This suited us perfectly, though it did take some getting used to the church bells next door very early on the first morning (a Sunday)!



The villa itself is well appointed. Thanks to some of the earlier reviewers, we had a brand new BBQ provided and made full use of it! I would recommend that a kettle is provided in each of the bedrooms (we had one among the three bedrooms so we had to make sure that the early risers had the kettle) and perhaps a microwave oven in the kitchenette upstairs (or is that being too fussy?).



I agree with all the positive remarks made in the other reviews.



On an unrelated note, we had a very unfortunate experience with a car we rented from www.santorinicarhire.com (Emver from Kamari). I would not recommend them as our experience with them has been extremely painful and unprofessional, with very intimidating and threatening behavior being directed at us when they tried to charge us for pre-existing damage on the car.

Definitely an experience I would relive!!

  • 5 of 5

This is not the first time my wife and I have visited Santorini but I can honestly say it was one of the best...

Our stay in mansion Kyani was truly an experience I would wholeheartedly recommend to any demanding traveler.

The day we arrived was very hot and our trip a little tiring but we were fully rewarded when we took a refreshing dip in the swimming pool and relaxed with a chilled bottle of wine (courtesy of management) in the cool courtyard. The rest of our stay fully lived up to our expectations.

A villa that captures the essence of Santorini

  • 5 of 5

Centrally located in what is probably the most traditional village in Santorini, the mansion captures the breathtaking beauty of this unique island. Exquisitely decorated and impeccably kept, the mansion offers a stunning view of the traditional village of Megalochori, a very inviting courtyard, swimming pool and overall excellent outdoor as well as indoor facilities. In the village you can find all you could possibly need from shopping to dining and night entertainment. The caldera is within walking distance,while it is only a short drive to the island's unique beaches and other beauty spots. The manager, Takis, and his staff further enhanced our experience with their friendliness and excellent service. Will definitely go back!!!

Beautiful mansion Kyani-Santorini

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous week at this stunning villa. We had everything we could want or require throughout. The people were so friendly and helpful and nothing a chore. We are at three of the local restaurants during our stay and the food was tremendous. The villa manager and concierge provided a prompt first class service and I wouldn't hesitate to return to this stunning villa or recommend to a friend. A stay at mansion Kyani-Santorini will give you a fantastic experience of Greek life and its traditions.

Beautiful Villa Kyani in a heart of Megalochori

  • 5 of 5

We had a great Vacation gateway staying at this Villa. Villa is located in the upper part of the village and therefore has a breathtaking view of the surroundings partially including the sea coast. Villa has a traditional Greek design, blue pool, comfortable set up around it, 3 separate bedrooms and a hammock! The place is very relaxing, you can enjoy authentic Greek-style bathtub and more...Very near the Villa there are several restaurants, mini-shops and parking area.

The service was great, we had a cleaning lady coming in every day, and the Property Assistant Jackie was very nice and helpful. She helped us to arrange a boat trip "Aphrodite" to see the Island coast/Volcano/Oia with the dinner in the sunset.

Special thanks to General Manager Takis for making this booking fast, easy and flawless. The communication was great, additionally he helped us with the car arrangements and always was available for any questions.

With my great pleasure I recommend to book this villa for your holidays in Santorini.

Our entire family including 2 kids (6 and 2 yo) enjoed the stay at Villa Kyani!!!

See you next time!

We felt like millionaires

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I invited our children and children in law to celebrate our 25 wedding anniversary.

We wanted the trip to be exceptional and unforgettable, and we searched high and low until we found this gem.

We arrived quite late in the evening (around midnight), but still we were met by the concierge of the house, who showed us around the house and recommended trips and things to do and see.

The pictures at the website don't lie: Everything was exactly like that. Rooms and bathrooms were luxurious and the outside garden/courtyard were the place where we spend most of the time. The small, but clean and cooling pool where great and indispensable in the summer heat. And even if it is a detail I will praise the clean, white, fat towels available.

If there had been some kind of sunscreen/shadow at the terrace at the first floor, we would have used the place a little more.

I must complement the manager of the villa for ALWAYS quick mail response at any questions or need. Exceptional great service in any way.

The village around the villa is very authentic and quiet. We have to recommend the restaurant Feggera just around the corner: Very professional service and very good food - we got the best mussels ever!

In the contrary we can not recommend the wine tasting at the winery just beside the villa. It is expensive and unsatisfactory. The wine is OK, but the review is beneath contempt.

Our week in the island and the villa went much to fast, but we hope we can be back some day.

Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

After a disappointing experience with a VRBO rental in Athens (not as described, not even the same property), we were a bit nervous about our Santorini rental. Our fears dissolved as we entered the gated courtyard to Mansion Kyani. The property was clean, as beautiful as pictured, and spacious. The Wi-Fi worked quite well. Plumbing is typical Greek - no flushing paper and have to turn on water heater 20-30 minutes ahead of time. Takis and Jackie, his property manager, were easy to reach and responsive to every need. Even when we added a 5th person on at the last minute, they changed the driving arrangements and tours for us. We could not have asked for more!

The village of Megalochori is delightful; full of winding streets with beautiful colored villas and pleasant people. The shop keepers and restaurateurs delighted in having us there. Because of the stairs and the steep climbs in the village, it would not necessarily be good for those with significant physical disabilities. I would seriously consider visiting again, skipping Athens, and coming back to Megalochori and Mansion Kyani (or perhaps its sister property next door). I usually stay in hotels when I travel but this was such a nice experience especially for a group traveling together, that I cannot recommend it highly enough.

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.
