Mansion 1878

Megalochori
Five Bedroom Villa with Private Pool

Mansion 1878 is a true masterpiece of the Cycladic minimal grandeur, with its white-washed walls, traditional furniture, cave-style rooms. Dating back to the 17th century, Mansion 1878 was owned by one of the most influential families of the island. This beautifully restored two-story mansion is a secret oasis of luxury and relaxation, not far away from the cosmopolitan buzz of the island.

Mansion 1878 is located just two minutes away from the center of the picturesque village of Megalochori where you will find traditional tavernas, shops and beautiful alleys with traditional houses and bougainvillea.

Mansion 1878 can host up to 10 people and is just perfect for families and groups of friends, or for any kind of celebrations, without the slightest compromise in privacy and comfort. The antiques and the traditional style furniture used in the interiors, alongside the natural light coming generously through the windows, set the perfect scene and make Mansion 1878 an exclusive hideaway that offers everything you need, in a stunning, legendary location.

Find yourself soaking up in the outdoor swimming pool, relaxing on the hammock or on the Mansion’s rooftops, gazing the emblematic views of the island’s vineyards and you will realize how easy it is to become entangled in the spell of Santorini.

History

The Μansion’s history goes back a century, when the mansion was a “canava” (winery) and the owners’ private residence. The first floor of the mansion was used by the family who owned the winery business as a house, and the ground floor was used as a cellar. In this “canava”, the world-famous Vinsanto wine was produced and exported to Russia, where it was used by the Russian Orthodox Church for the Holy Communion. However, the Russian Revolution took its toll on the once flourishing Vinsanto businesses of the island.

Since then, Mansion 1878 has been smartly renovated, keeping the authentic features untouched and enhancing the luxury and comfort elements. The sunken cylindrical troughs, used for Vinsanto’s distilling, have been turned into unique lighting features while three large barn-style doors lead the visitors from the cobbled courtyard to the rooms. The smooth-edged carved interior is designed to be naturally cool during the hot summer days, while the outdoor swimming pool offers an extra option to freshen up.
