Description from the owner
This beautifully restored, traditional two-storey Mansion dating back to 17th Century offers a luxury escape to those seeking to experience the pace and charm of life on Santorini away from the jostling summer crowds found in Fira and Oia. The property is two minute stroll from the village square with its few infamous tavernas along a winding road with cream and white washed walls and bright fuschia flowers.
Outside guests can enjoy the privacy of the walled courtyard, relax by the swimming pool, soak up the sun on the hammock, or retire upstairs to the roof-top terraces providing diners with panoramic views over the rooftops and view...Read more

Santorini, Aegean Islands, Greece
Additional Location Information
Megalochori is a cozy village that still has genuine old world charm and an authentic village way of life. Narrow roads and footpaths, sprinkled with brilliant flowers, meander past whitewashed traditional houses and under lacey Venetian bell towers to meet at the lovely cobblestone village square. Here you can enjoy a quiet lunch at the local taverna, Raki, shaded by the vine covered pergola and listening to church bells toll. As the evening progresses, locals and visitors gather at the square for cocktails and Italian specialties at Il Gioiello, or live Greek music played by local musicians at Raki.
Formerly home to wealthy wine making families in the 17th century, Megalochori is filled with architectural treasures: renovated grandiose mansions and wine cellars, along with smaller traditional historical houses and the many churches that have served this small community over time.
Lush vineyards can be still seen in every direction beyond the village, home to three of Santoriniβs most historic and prominent working wineries today. They are happy to accept visitors for tastings and tours.
Megalochori is an easy central point for exploring Santorini. It is close to the islandβs most famous beaches, notably Red beach, Perivolos beach and Perissa beach. The old Venetian castle settlements at Emporio or Pyrgos are just minutes from the village. The beaches and world renowned archaeological site at Akrotiri are also just a short distance away.
After a day of exploring the beauty of Santorini, you will always be glad to return to peaceful Megalochori. Like a world removed, in Megalochori there is a quiet tranquility and a different pace: the pace of island village life.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Most perfect holiday in the most perfect location!
We stayed the Mansion 1878 for a family wedding and we had the most wonderful experience. The Mansion is just beautiful and was the perfect location for a wedding. The rooms are exquisite and so interesting how they are built into the stone. Our little boy still talks about his cave room and swimming pool bath!
The village of Megalochori couldn't have been more welcoming and the staff at Raki restaurant were so friendly and accommodating. From organising a table for a large party at a moments notice to bringing meals and drinks up to the Mansion for us. The food was always delicious, especially on the Wedding day!
If you've hired a car Megalochori is perfectly located for exploring the very beautiful island of Santorini. Nowhere took us more than 20 mins to drive to.
We had a superb time at the Mansion 1878, we were looked after perfectly and would to this or any of their other properties at a moments notice!

Thank you for your fantastic comments its was a pleasure to have you & your family stay. Your very welcome anytime! Best regards Sharron Villas & Mansions
Four simply perfect days in this wonderful mansion
My husband and I stayed at Villa Io and Mansion 1878 for our wedding with 9 friends. The Mansion is an absolute stunning place, the colours of the old house and the antique design of the interior is simply perfect.
I got dressed up on our wedding day at the Mansion 1878, while my wife got ready at the Villa Io. It was great to prepare for our ceremony in such a wonderful environment with our friends around!
My wife and I as well as 5 friends stayed at the Mansion and its size was perfect for this number. The villa was very clean and well maintained - inside and outside. The pool area was great and relaxing. There was a big table outside so that we were able to have breakfast each morning in the sun! The kitchen was well equipped, and each day, the staff came in order to clean the pool and the dishes (there is no dishwasher).
The village Megalochori is very nice and idyllic! There are almost no tourists which is difficult to find on Santorini. The main square of the village is near (only a 2 minute walk by foot) and there is a great restaurant (Taverne Raki) with delicious Greek food! We had our wedding dinner there. For breakfast, there is a bakery nearby.
The communication with Sharron, the manager of the villas, was great! We received answers to all our questions and we even skyped a couple of times. Also Raphaela was also a great help! And thanks to the whole Raki team for everything!
The Mansion thus was the perfect place to stay! Highly recommendable!

We loved our stay in Mansion 1878. The facility as well as its location couldn't have been better. Lovely accommodations in a picturesque village. We will always remember our stay in Santorini (Magalchori).
A fantastic stay in Santorini! The villa provided my mother ( age 79) and my two children ( age 21 and 18) plenty of room and privacy for everyone to do as they pleased. The pool was not only beautiful to look at and swim, but a wonderful gathering place to discuss the events of the day. We loved the cozy restaurant Rika and the bakery up the cobbled street. Santorini, and the lovely people of Megalochori, were the highlight of our trip.
Thank you for giving us the vacation of a lifetime!
Thank you to Petros and the team at Villas and Mansions. We had an amazing time in Santorini and the villas played a big part in this. Your customer service was impeccable, each staff member was so friendly and helpful. The villas were outstanding in their fit out and design, our photos are amazing. All of our friends who came along were so impressed and a group of us plan to come back in the near future.
