INO 2 BEDROOM HOUSE WITH PRIVATE POOL
This peaceful family hideaway is tucked away in a secluded alcove along a winding footpath, lined with white walls and cascading fuschia flowers, leading from the Megalochori village square. The House is just a two-minute walk from the village square and a million miles from your cares.
A stroll through the picturesque village reveals a few famous restaurants nestled beneath pretty Venetian church bell towers.
This once upon a time village school house is loaded with character. Delightful old world antiques and artsy hand crafted light fixtures mingle with traditional vaulted ceilings and arched passageways in this uniquely renovated home. The airy white interiors are always cool and comfortable. This is stylish simplicity at its best.
The vibrant red plaster walls of the private cobbled courtyard are dazzling; the perfect complement for the sparkling blue pool. Soak in the sun at the pool or wait for the dramatic mood lighting of nightfall.
The House promises tranquility, privacy, and a taste of traditional village life. The House is ideal for families wanting to experience the authentic Greek island life-style of days gone by without compromising on modern comfort.
The House once served as the village school for the local children of Megalochori.
The old-school house has been sensitively renovated, preserving the original organic shape and proportions of the smooth walls, vaulted ceilings and arched openings of the existing building. These elements remind you of how the building was constructed, in the old Santorinian tradition of carving buildings into the soft pumice-stone earth of the village hills. The layout of the house takes its cues from traditional Santorini houses, echoing the shapes and colors of the island’s unique architecture.
Another notable feature of The House is its natural ambient interior temperature. The natural insulation of the earthen walls of the space regulated the temperature of the school house, keeping the interior warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Today, this natural insulation continues to be an advantage, maintaining a constantly cool interior environment in The House, even on the hottest summer days.
Feng Shui and Geomancy Certified House
At a distance of 7 klm far from Fira at the Southwest, it is found Megalochori. Its name in greek means "big village", but in fact with 460 permanent residents, the name is not fully justified! However, Megalochori is one of the most representative villages of Santorini, having kept almost intact its features. Typical traditional cycladic houses, neoclassic buildings and small houses dug in the volcanic rock blend together with harmony.
Megalochori is located in the centre of Santorini offering easy access to Fira and the beaches nearby. It is built according to the traditional architecture of Cyclades and has maintained the local character. The area around Megalohori is full of vineyards and during the harvest the roofs of the houses are full of grapes drying under the sun for the famous “vinsanto” wine.
