Mansion Sophia

Airbnb Luxe
Mansion Sophia - 2Br - Sleeps 4
4 guests2 bedrooms2 beds1 bath
Mansion Sophia 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 which in turn brought the Mansion Houses. Megalochori had a particularly strong link with the Port 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. Up until fifteen years ago the house was still occupied by one of the descendants of the Akila family, after which the villa is named. She refused to allow modern technology to enter the house, and lived happily with no electricity collecting her water in the well after each winter rain. Mansion Sophia now has the luxury of all modern conveniences, including electricity and running water, but retains the character and style of the original house.
The imposing wooden entrance gates of Mansion Sophia conceal a secluded and quite private courtyard, complete with a swimming pool, outdoor furniture and hammock. As alluded to already, this mansion has all the technology you’ll need during your stay including Wi-Fi access, satellite TV and DVD player.
Double doors lead directly from the courtyard into a spacious lounge and dining area with its vaulted ceilings and original polished wooden floors. 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 al fresco meals under blue skies while absorbing the village atmosphere.
The two double bedrooms, one master and one smaller second bedroom, lead off from either side of the central living room. One bathroom, with modern amenities, services both bedrooms.
This Mansion is perfect for those ready to switch off their mobiles, put their feet up, sit back and enjoy Santorini from a different perspective. Tourist attractions, including Fira and Oia, and the best beaches of Santorini are all only a short drive away. Included in the cost of the property hire is one private roundtrip transfer from/to port or airport and a car rental. Go on and enjoy this gorgeous Greek island. Book now and start imagining yourself in sun-kissed Santorini.
