Villa Cyrene - Beautiful villa with hot tub, sunny courtyard & authentic vibe
Description from the manager
Once an 18th century canava producing wine, this elevated village home has been meticulously renovated without compromising any of its character. Suitable for a small family, its playful curves lend it a fun, happy vibe. Complimentary car rental is included with your accommodation and transfers can be arranged to and from the airport and port if required. A daily housekeeping service will keep everything spick and span, and theres a laundry room if you forget to pack enough towels.
You may feel as if youve discovered a secret oasis in the heart of the village as the door swings open onto a very pretty private courtyard, blushing with bougainvillea which blooms from huge terracotta flowerpots. Its the perfect spot for sharing sunny breakfasts, leisurely lunches and starlit suppers. Climb the steps to the upper floor terrace and pamper yourself in the all-natural outdoors hot tub as you peep out across the rooftops. Entirely chemical-free, the tub features an ozone generator, UV disinfection system, and iPod dock with speakers. Then stretch out on a sun lounger and soak up some Santorini sunshine.
If the heat gets too intense, step into the cool of your villa. Sculpted from whitewashed natural stone, its a little like being inside a snow cave, and many of the houses fixtures have been crafted from the same materials. The kitchen takes center stage, its countertops blending seamlessly into the white walls. An organic open-plan living and dining space invites you to gather on the sofa or at the table for relaxed meals or a cozy night watching DVDs and listening to music. Wi-Fi keeps everyone connected but if you prefer to switch off, there are plenty of books to choose from.
The living room integrates with the master bedroom via exposed brick archways, and links to an opulent bathroom with sunken bathtub and a natural stone shower. There's also a second separate en-suite bedroom overlooking the courtyard.
If youre feeling adventurous, Megalochori is quite literally on your doorstep and is considered to be one of the most picturesque and historic villages on the island. Follow its winding cobbled streets to the square and enjoy a coffee under the shade of a tree while you watch the locals play cards or tavli (backgammon). Its a 2 minute drive to the nearest winery and 10 minutes to the beaches and lively Fira town.
