Wow just Wow

What can I say that hasn't been said already!

The owners have obviously spent a great deal of care and attention ensuring the winery has been restored to amazing detail and ensuring that everything is there to make your holiday the best it can be.

We were a family of 9 and not once were we treading each other's toes, there are lots of areas you can escape to if you need, however for us the amazing pool was the centre of fun you want on a holiday.

There is so much to do and see at Santorini, for us the highlights were an amazing catamaran trip which the villa manager Iro sorted for us. This was a half day trip all food and proper beer and wine included and the boat to ourselves.

I would also recommend the walk from Fira to Oia, make sure you wear sensible shoes, go early in the day, take water and a camera the views are absolutely stunning.

In terms of eating the best taverna we went to which is walking distance from the Winery was Marmita, the service was amazing with free Raki and most importantly the food was the best we had certainly I would recommend the moussaka.

Lastly I have to say the local bakery is to die for, we walked there every morning for Croissant and pain au chocolate and then ice cream in the afternoon, what a life!

I very rarely give 5 stars but if I could I would award 6

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We booked The Winery Estate for a week long gathering with friends and family, and couldn't have had a better experience! The Winery is beautiful, well-appointed and spacious. The views are gorgeous, and we loved the setting--perched just "above" the town of Megalochori, surrounded by fields (and a few donkeys), all within sight of several churches, and of course the ocean.

And you can't write a review without mentioning the bakery that is a short walk from the Winery. We're still dreaming about the bakery.

The Winery is well-cared for, with many features that could only be possible in a restored winery. The multiple outdoor terraces ensured that everyone had plenty of room stretch out and enjoy some quiet time, or gather with the group around the pool or dining area.

Not only is the Winery itself amazing, but so is the villa manager. He helped us organize tours for our group, and was there every day to answer our many (and diverse) questions about the Winery and about life on Santorini. He provided all the help we could have asked for, and much more.

We all had a very memorable stay on Santorini, due in large part to the wonderful accommodations provided by The Winery, and by the graciousness of the owner and villa manager. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful large villa. Will return next year.

  • 5 of 5

I don't usually write reviews but i thought this one was worth it.

Its a very big property and rather impressive, the photos do not do it justice. Inside it is a very comfortable temperature and nice and clean, you do not even need the air con on. Outside there is plenty of space for everyone, and the pool is the ideal place to cool off after exploring the island in the day time. Villa manager and owners were always on hand to advise and answer our questions. The village the villa is in is very quaint and well located to visit other parts of the island. The island itself is magical and has been on our bucket list for many year. We were not disappointed.

Amazing villa, perfect week

  • 5 of 5

we spent a week at this amazing villa. when we arrived we could not believe how impressive it was, its more like a castle. inside was well decorated, clean, spacious and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need.

outside, there was just so much space, the different terraces offered our group of 12 enough space to really enjoy our holiday without feeling like we were on top of each other. the pool was a highlight. we loved the location, how peaceful it was, you really do get to unwind here and the views are stunning. the village of megalahori is very beautiful and has some very good restaurants, we loved feggera.

the villa manager was great and knew just about everything about the island, she gave us some great recommendations and also booked us a catamaran trip to the volcano and hot springs where we had a bbq on board, and later in the week, horse riding for us girls. the cleaner came every other day and even babysat for us one night.

overall, our time at this villa was one of the best holidays we have ever had, a truly fantastic, unforgettable week. would definitely recommend.

Wonderful Villa, Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This villa is stunning!

This old winery has been lovingly converted and has such character and charm. It's spotless and has everything you need. We loved the little touches like the light shades out of old wine barrels - very clever!

The village of Megalochori has managed to retain it's traditional Greek village feel. We loved taking our morning walk through the winding little streets to the bakery (and walking a little more crooked on the way home from one of the tavernas in the lovely little square). Exploring was such fun as there are some incredible buildings with such history - plus you always saw a donkey, can you get more Greek than that? It really was a taste of authentic Greek village life. A perfect escape with stunning views.

The island is small, so the hustle and bustle towns were only a short drive away. In fact the whole holiday there was amazing. Topped off by fantastic hosts who couldn't do more for you. We came back from our stay here feeling refreshed and energised. Can't ask for more from a holiday really. Top notch!
