Family owned for two centuries, the Mansion boasts a rich history. The owner is a notable architect on the island of Santorini, and with his understanding of the island and its history, he has overseen numerous landmark renovations. One of his projects was the revival of the current family home. After the 1956 earthquake, the original 19th century Mansion was left in ruins. The family took this opportunity to reconstruct a contemporary interpretation of the neo-classical style, which was popular amongst the affluent inhabitants of the island at the time. Highlights of the home include striking domes, thick walls and vaulted ceilings – the symbiosis of old and new results in an atmosphere of understated luxury and authenticity. The family’s past is firmly rooted in the social, economic and political history of the island, and their involvement is proudly continued to this very day.
The décor is a delightful and eclectic mix of family heirlooms, modern pieces, old engravings, original paintings and treasures which are a feast to the eye. The effortless style is welcoming, comforting and one feels relaxed the moment you enter.
The Mansion accommodates up to10 guests and consists of a Main House and a Guest House, which has two independent cottages. The property is united around a luxuriant, sprawling sun-drenched courtyard with various alfresco seating and dining areas.
Upon entering the Mansion, you immediately feel at ease. High cross-vaulted ceilings are not only an impressive traditional feature, but also allows for a fresh and spacious feeling to the house. Your eye is immediately drawn to the inviting lounge with large windows and doors leading out to the verandah and that all-inspiring view.
The kitchen is simple a delight. Well-equipped with modern features, and quirky add-ons. One is sure to enjoy preparing breakfast and light meals in this charming environment.
You will find two double en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor with the third double bedroom up a short flight of stairs, delighting its occupants with an uninterrupted view of the Caldera.
All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and two of the bedrooms can be converted to twin bedded rooms. The great design of the home allows for easy access and a great indoor-outdoor flow, allowing you to enjoy the out-of-doors living.
The Guest House is the perfect place to lay your hat, kick off your shoes and relax after a day on the beach or exploring the wonders of the island. It has its own easily accessible private entrance and the house consists of two levels.
Upon entry you will reach the first double bedroom which has a light and airy feel. Quirky decorative touches, an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and private verandah with el-fresco seating complete it perfectly.
The second double bedroom is reached via an external flight of stairs, which leads you to the entrance and a wonderful shaded courtyard. One has to feel the heat of the Greek sun on your skin, to truly appreciate the shaded reprieve. This part of the Guest House consists of two adjoining rooms. Upon entry there is a comfortable seating area and a kitchenette, perfect for preparing light snacks, and a spacious and bright double bedroom with bathroom.
Our service is discreet, with an excellent concierge on hand to offer personalized information and an “in” to the lesser celebrated parts of Santorini. Whether you’re looking for sun drenched beaches, a family getaway, or simply savoring the view we look forward to sharing our elegantly crafted home with you.
