Villa Fabrica - Unique villa, rich with history, with pool & beautiful views
Set in an old factory, this unique villa is packed full of history. Due to its layout, Fabrica can be split into four totally separate and private villas, or hired as a whole a truly knockout retreat for an unforgettable wedding or big family reunion. Santorini is famous for her organic Cycladic architecture, but its not every day you get to experience one like this. You have to stay here to live in it and breathe in it to fully appreciate the splendor of Fabricas high ceilings and natural light.
The villa boasts generous outdoor space: with two impressive pool terraces and various additional al fresco dining arrangements, you will be spoiled for choice in finding your perfect spot to lap up the Greek sunshine and savor the local cuisine. Theres also an outdoor jetted tub for when you cant think of anything youd rather do than unwind in the sunshine. Everything youd expect in terms of technology is in Villa Fabrica including satellite TV and iPod dock.
The property has a very sleek and minimal loft-style design, and has been restored with a deep understanding for its traditional Santorini architecture using the old style of polished cement and eco-friendly materials. Elements of the factory have been incorporated into the design, and a huge piece of machinery stands like a magnificent sculpture as the centerpiece of one of the numerous living spaces. The restoration project took years of meticulous research, as Fabrica is located just underneath the historically important Castle of Pyrgos. The floors were painstakingly created by a local craftsman, who mixed colors and cement to create the beautiful matte finish throughout. Care and attention has been lavished on this home to make sure everything is stylish and luxurious without being fussy. It offers unbeatable comfort and effortless elegance for what is truly a one-of-a-kind luxury villa.
There are eight bedrooms in Villa Fabrica as a whole, sleeping a maximum of 21 guests. You and your party will have a choice of en-suite and air conditioned rooms during your stay.
There are many things to see and do locally, including a day on the beach, visiting the nearby town of Pygros Tallisti, having a leisurely lunch in one of the restaurants or driving the 5km to Fira. With Santorini Airport only 6km away from Villa Fabrica, its clear to see why its so popular.

The Vila was fantastic. The building itself is as beautiful as the pictures show, and the location was even more beautiful. The staff was extremely helpful and available when needed while still allowing for the feeling of privacy of being at our own place. The island was beautiful with many activities (beaches, hiking, boating, swimming, sightseeing, shopping, eating, relaxing, etc.) within a few minutes either driving or walking. We can\'t wait to book our next trip!
