Villa with private Pool on Santorini
Our personal review (visited 2010)
Tucked away in a secluded alcove of Megalochori, only a 100 meter stroll away from the village square, this villa provides privacy and an ideal hide-away. As you walk to the villa, every now and then local pedestrians will appear and equally quickly disappear as they make their way through the labyrinth-like winding footpaths of this traditional village. Like most buildings in the village, this property is surrounded by high walls hiding the courtyard from curious eyes. The old wooden door opens onto a spacious, hand-laid cobbled courtyard complemented by a glistening pool which provides the perfect outdoor space for lazing around on summer days.
The interior is built into the volcanic rock and all white with beautiful arched interiors.
The layout of the villa takes the form of the traditional Santorini houses. The floors throughout the villa are traditional polished cement and are covered with rugs adding a cool and sophisticated air to the interior. As the village of Megalochori is surrounded by vineyards, the villa continues with this theme with unusual light fittings fashioned out of the basket-like vines.
The farm-style kitchen is large and well equipped with modern appliances, an antique dinning table and beautifully crafted chairs. Cutlery and crockery are housed in an ornate antique dresser, adding an old-world charm to the kitchen.
The original double wooden doors open up into a single room and a staircase leads you up to a delightful den. The latter is only suited for children, due to its size, narrow access and the sense of a loft hide-away.
Through an arched passageway, leading from the kitchen, you will find the comfortably appointed living room with doors leading out to the courtyard and pool. Doors lead from the lounge to a comfortable double bedroom. The open-space bathroom has a large shower, marble vanity, beautifully restored towel rails and a separate toilet (access through the bathroom).
This traditional Villa ensures tranquility, privacy and a taste of village life. The villa is ideal for families wanting to experience the true island life-style of days gone by without compromising on comfort.
On arrival at Santorini airport or port, you will be escorted to the villa and a porter will take care of your luggage to make sure your vacation starts with arrival on Santorini island.
Daily housekeeping service of 2 hours is included.
Catering of any meals can be arranged through the nearby tavern owned by the management of this stunning villa. Additional services like tour guide, private masseuse, shopping and delivery service are available upon request.
