The Concept: Luxury Heritage Retreat

Mansion Sophia is a large heritage property for 4 in the peaceful village of Megalochori, Santorini. The renovated villa was once a wealthy merchant’s home and all the rooms of the house overlook the large cobbled courtyard. The villa is hidden in the alleys of the quaint village, past a little church and under bougainvillea arches. As you stumble upon the covered wooden front gate of Sophia, you will instantly fall in love with the energy of the place. This 19th century villa is a secluded paradise waiting for you!


The walled courtyard hides your private outdoor space, with a Moroccan style pool and sun loungers, a pool sofa bed, pottery urns with local plants and an impressive bougainvillea hanging over the walls. There is also a smaller courtyard with alfresco dining table and chairs, as well as candle night lanterns for romance under the stars. The terrace is perfect for your moments of zen and it is the ideal haven for true relaxation and rebirth.

Interior Design

Double doors lead from the courtyard into the spacious living and dining area, with high vaulted ceilings and reclaimed wood floors. The royal-like bedrooms are on either side of the living area, and one of them has a 4-poster bed worth fighting for. You will also find a bathroom and a kitchen. The polished wooden floors and the original features give the feeling of a historic mansion, with a mix of antique pieces and comfortable modern amenities for you to enjoy every moment in this summer home away from home.

Remember to

Bring your driver’s license to use the complimentary hire car included with your stay at Sophia. The villa enjoys free parking nearby and the black volcanic sand beaches of Perivolos are an easy 6 km drive away. Email our concierge for more top tips of what to see and do on Santorini or what experiences we can arrange for you at the privacy of your Santorini villa. From chef services to yoga sessions, we can make it happen!

Good to know

During the 17th century, Megalochori was home to rich vineyard owners and their large houses and canavas. Legend has it, it was also home of pirates who rushed to the village as their hideaway. The village has remained quiet and picturesque, and all building renovations have retained their original design, making it a unique sight in the Greek island.
