Mansion Sophia Santorini

The History & Location of Mansion Sophia

The peaceful little village of Megalochori is a much sought after and appreciated holiday base from which to enjoy the many attractions of this unique island. A leisurely 10 minutes stroll from the village leads to a lovely unspoiled Caldera path, perfect for hiking amp; marvelling at magnificent vistas of the Volcano & sunset. Only 6 km from the busy town of Fira, it is another world and an ideal holiday base for those who want to relax and enjoy Santorini from a different perspective.

Mansion Sophia was built around the mid-19th century and inhabited by one of the feudal landlords of the island at that time. These merchants and landlords became wealthy exporting the unique Vinsanto wine, which the island still produces. Megalochori had a particularly strong link with Odessa in Russia and many of the church bells which still toll in the village today are from Russia.

  • The house is situated just a short stroll from the central village square with its pretty churches and picturesque Venetian bell towers. The village, with its winding cobbled pathways, is free of traffic. Access to the house is through imposing large wooden entrance gates into a secluded and very pretty private courtyard, complete with swimming pool (3.4 x 5m, depth 1.55m). There is also an outdoor dining table and chairs in the courtyard, as well as four poolside loungers and an umbrella.



The house has been beautifully renovated to provide all modern amenities, yet at the same time retaining the character and style of the original house. Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious living and dining area with superb high vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors. The kitchen has an original stone arch which now serves as a washing up and preparation area.
Our Concierge service is available during your stay to advise on what to do, where to eat, and any other information you may require.
