An introduction to Villa Santorini I

How would you describe Villa Santorini I in a nutshell?

Villa Santorini I is the perfect villa rental for guests who are looking for privacy and relaxation in the beautiful and quiet village of Megalochori. The rooms have vaulted ceilings and original wooden floors. Both bedrooms are air-conditioned, there is an enclosed courtyard with a private garden and a Moroccan-style swimming pool. You'll be just a short walk from the village centre, the closest beach is just 5km and Fira town 7km away.

Tell us a bit about the history of Villa Santorini I.

The villa actually belongs to my family and was restored 10 years ago. Before that it belonged to one of the feudal landlords who became wealthy by exporting the Vinsanto wine. We tried to renovate it the best way possible to maintain the original feeling of the house but still added some features. Now it has comforts like a private pool, air conditioning, WIFI, iPod with docking station, satellite TV. We tried not to change the traditional style of the original house which features a beautiful secluded courtyard with garden (where the pool is), and a smaller but equally lovely yard for alfresco dining with views on the village church domes.

To you personally, what has been most rewarding about running a villa rental?

When I was first involved to open our villas to vacation guests, I really enjoyed it because it is fantastic to be able to interact with people from all over the world. And it is very rewarding to see guests come to our house, have a great time and recommend us in travel reports.

Also, I am very happy for the world-class recognition of Santorini, which was voted every year for the last years as the World’s Best Island by popular travel magazines like Travel + Leisure and Conde Nast Traveller.

The villa is very original and traditional even though it has all the modern comforts and amenities. There is even a 24 hour concierge service and a daily maid, just like in a 5 star hotel. It has original wooden floors and high vaulted ceilings, and all the furniture are either original antiques or made by local artisans to complement the history of the house.

It is very important to note that we include a free rental car for every day of the guests’ stay which can be delivered to the port or airport. Also we have free WiFi and air-conditioning. The walls of the villa are big and provide cool temperatures, but it’s nice to have A/C anyway.

The location of Villa Santorini I

The villa’s integration into village is really special: The second you step outside you find yourself surrounded by the many white-walled houses of Santorini and the village’s domes while the traffic free village square with the lovely restaurants are only 50 meters away! Another big advantage in comparison to some other houses is that the villa is really private and surrounded by big white walls. That’s why in the past we had many celebrity guests enjoying their privacy with us during their vacation on Santorini.

When is the best time to visit Santorini?

Due to the fact that the villa is located in that particular village: anytime. Usually Santorini gets really packed during summer, but Megalochori is not touristic, so anytime is good. To me personally early July and September is the best time to avoid Santorini’s tourist crowds. But to some people seasons don’t matter anyway as they simply want to relax in the pool all day long and just go to the village square and back.
