Follow the narrow winding footpath from the square and you will reach the welcoming doors of the villa. This historic building, originally home of a wealthy local wine merchant, is situated on a hill top overlooking the vineyards and quant village of Megalochori, with the sparkling Aegean in the distance.
Location: Situated in the traditional settlement of Megalochori. The villa is reached on foot along a footpath. About a 30 meter walk from the square of the village.
The peaceful village of Megalochori makes a much sought after and appreciated alternative to the bustling and jostling of the busy city of Fira.
This villa, 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 Pepheli conceal a secluded and pretty private courtyard, complete with the recent addition of a 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.
The villa 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 Mansion is perfect for those ready to switch of their mobiles, put their feet up, sit back and enjoy
Santorini from a different perspective. The tourist attractions, including Fira and Oia, are only a short drive away.
