Villa Poseidon was built around the mid 19th century and was 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 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.
Villa Poseidon now has the luxury of all modern conveniences including electricity and running water but, retaining the character and style of the house, few structural changes have been implemented.
This Villa is perfect for those ready to switch off their cell phones, put their feet up, and sit back and enjoy Santorini from a different perspective. The tourist attractions, including Fira and Oia, are only a short drive away.
Included in the price are: Taxes,one 5-seat car rental, two hours daily housekeeping, Concierge service and complementary cell phone.
Upon request at extra charge: Private chef service, grocery shopping and delivery, private masseuse, private tour guide and boat rental.
The imposing large wooden entrance gates of Villa Poseidon 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. 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. 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.
Peace, tranquility and by-gone days best describe one of the few traditional settlements on the island. Situated six miles from Fira, Megalochori is within easy reach of Akrotiri and many beaches on the island. Today Megalochori has a lively community with a fairly large number of permanent residents, adding to the local flavour and charm.
Megalochori presents a multitude of faces, with narrow roads begging to be explored. Three of the island's largest wineries are located here, with excellent tavernas located in the village.
