The location of Archipel Mansion is hard to beat. Unsurpassed views overlooking the world famous Volcano, nestled in an unspoiled and discreet neighbourhood - and rather importantly - easy access to the Mansion. This translates into no endless footpaths, uphill and hard to navigate stairs to reach your accommodation. The heart of Fira or the village of Firostefani is a mere ten minute leisurely stroll away.
The Mansion, family owned for centuries, boasts a rich history. The house has been reconstructed taking the form of a contemporary interpretation of the neo-classical style, which was popular amongst the affluent inhabitants of the island around the 19th century. Highlights of the home include striking domes, thick walls and vaulted ceilings – the symbiosis of old and new results in an atmosphere of understated luxury and authenticity.
The décor is a charming and eclectic mix of family heirlooms, modern pieces, old engravings, original paintings and treasures which are a feast to the eye. The effortless style is welcoming, comforting and one feels relaxed the moment you enter.
Archipel Mansion may accommodate up to eight guests and consists of the Mansion (Main House) and an adjacent studio, each one with its own private entrance.
Upon entering the Mansion, you immediately feel at ease. High cross-vaulted ceilings are not only a notable traditional feature, but also allows for a fresh and spacious feeling to the house. Your eye is immediately drawn to the inviting lounge with large windows and doors leading out to the veranda and that all-inspiring view.
The kitchen is simple a delight. Well equipped with modern features, and quirky add-ons. One is sure to enjoy preparing light meals in this charming environment.
You will find two double en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor with the third double bedroom up a short flight of stairs, delighting its occupants with an uninterrupted view of the Caldera.
All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and two of the bedrooms can be converted to twin bedded rooms. The great design of the home lends itself to a great indoor-outdoor flow, allowing you to enjoy the out-of-doors living.
Life in Greece -especially to the Aegean islands- is particularly appropriate for outdoor living. The property offers this opportunity to the maximum: Built-in benches with comfortable sofas around wooden tables, the breakfast table with its cool and all-time classic “Kafeneion” chairs, the relaxing chaises-longue arranged on the front terrace, the open air areas shaded by either cross-vaults, pergolas or sun umbrellas, and the big outdoor polished cement table, provide the property with a variety of outdoor possibilities for any time of the day. The whole place is surrounded by islets of gardens, planted with a variety of endemic plant species: a pomegranate tree, oleanders, hibiscus and bougainvilleas along with a fan of aromatic plants, such as basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary, lavender and mint.
The Studio, next to the Main House, is the perfect place to lay your hat, kick off your shoes and relax after a day on the beach or exploring the wonders of the island. It has its own easily accessible private entrance.
Upon entry you will reach the double bedroom which has a light and airy feel. Quirky decorative touches, an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and private veranda with al fresco seating area.
Our service is discreet, with an excellent concierge on hand to offer personalized information and an insight to the lesser celebrated parts of the island.
Whether you are seeking sun drenched beaches, a family getaway, or simply savoring the view, Archipel Mansion allows for a perfect base to enjoy the Caldera on your doorstep and the numerous attractions Santorini has to offer.
