Villa Santorini I is a historic holiday rental home in a truly outstanding location near the best beaches in the Aegean sea.
How would you describe Villa Santorini II in a nutshell?
Discover an extraordinary Santorini residence in one of the less tourist-ridden villages, Megalochori. Villa Santorini was converted into a luxury rental with the help of a Feng Shui expert. Its three bedrooms and three living areas are exquisitely decorated and the house boasts all modern luxuries. An infinity pool with a sun deck, the courtyard, and the lounge areas all have magnificent views of the Aegean Sea in the distance. Situated on a hilltop, this villa sits above Megalochori village and beautiful vinyards.
Can you tell us a bit about the history of Villa Santorini II, please.
This historic house belongs to our family and was build around 1850. Our goal was to respect the original feeling of the house but also to add modern comforts like a private pool, a lounge area with sun deck and big bathrooms. For that, we consulted with experts and we even employed a Feng Shui specialist from Germany in order to follow the principles of Feng Shui during the renovation. I think the result speaks for itself: Our guests are very happy and love the aesthetics and the feeling of our house.
To you personally, what is unique about this villa rental?
The villa is located high up and offers spectacular views over the village, the Santorini vineyards and the Aegean Sea into the distance. Another big advantage of this house is its beautiful big courtyard, which includes an extravagant infinity swimming pool and sun deck made entirely by volcanic rock. Here our guests can relax in a beautiful scenery — illuminated in a dramatic way during night-time, offering an unforgettable experience. Also, I would like to mention the al fresco dining area on the top floor, where our guests dine having as backdrop the scenery of the village and the church domes.
What was your inspiration to rent the villa to vacation guests?
As it is very expensive to renovate and maintain such a big and old house in a perfect condition, we decided to open it to the public as a villa rental for the periods not occupied for our family’s vacations.
Is there anything else you want to add?
Living in a historic house like ours in a traditional village like Megalochori gives our guests a unique opportunity to have an authentic Greek experience in a relaxing environment, making their vacations unforgettable!
