Villa Sophia is situated at the peaceful village of Megalochori, a much sought after and appreciated alternative to the bustling and jostling of the busy city of Fira. The villa is, a rare find, is a just 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.
The imposing large wooden entrance gates of Villa Sophia conceal a secluded and pretty private courtyard, complete with a magnificent Morrocan-style swimming pool. Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious lounge and dining area with its superb high vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors, adding warmth and character to the room.
The two double bedrooms, one master and one smaller second bedroom, lead off from either side of the central living room. The master bedroom has a majestic four-poster double bed. One bathroom, with modern amenities, services both bedrooms.
The well equipped kitchen has an original stone arch which now serves as a washing up and preparation area.
The coup-de-grace is the lovely kitchen garden, perfect for enjoying alfresco meals under blue skies whilst absorbing the village atmosphere.
Villa 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 land barons became wealthy exporting the unique Vinsanto wine the island still produces. Trade brought wealth and wealth brought the Mansion Houses. Megalochori had a particularly strong link with the town of Odessa in Russia. Many of the church bells which still toll in the village today are from Russia and have a very distinct clarity.
This villa is perfect for those ready to sit back and enjoy Santorini from a different perspective. The main tourist attractions, including Fira and Oia, as well as the best beaches of the island are only a short drive away. Villa Sophia provides a perfect base for those wanting to experience the many rhythms of the island. The owners will meet guests at the port or airport and escort them to the villa.
