“Beautiful villa in absolutely gorgeous surroundings”
Reviewed 26 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My three friends and I booked our October mini break in March and received lovely updates and comms from Takis, the general manager right up until we flew. He was also very accommodating when we wanted to add a fifth guest.

We were happy to see the airport transfers were included, and when we arrived we were met by the hire car company, however we were slightly taken aback to be greeted by two cars and one driver! Bear in mind you may have to drive immediately when you land and will need your driver's licence. (You will also definitely need the car - Santorini is not really walkable!)

Once we arrived in Megalochori (which is gorgeous) we were met by Jackie, who showed us around the village and villa and was absolutely fantastic.

The villa itself is as gorgeous as the pictures make it look. The pool area is particularly fabulous and there's access to the roof for late afternoon sunbathing and incredible views of the village.

The only negative points in the villa are the hot water (which we couldn't get working despite Jackie's instructions) and the kitchen was a little under equipped. However these pale in comparison to the rest of the experience.

Megalochori itself is beautiful, charming and quiet - everything you expect a village to be. It has some great restaurants and lovely shops.

Would heartily recommend!

Management Response
26 Nov 2015
Dear Helen,
thanks for much for the kind words! It was wonderful to have you as guest in Mansion Sophia!
As you correctly noted we do include a car rental in the price which can be delivered directly at the port or airport. If private transfer is preferred, we can also arrange it as an extra service.
Thank you for your feedback regarding the hot water. The villa has of course hot water but the boiler needs to be switched on at least 15 minutes before using. We apologize if it was not explained clearly to you.
Thanks again and we look forward to see you again soon!

“Stunning and perfectly located”
Reviewed 12 November 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Mansion Sophia is breathtakingly beautiful, and is located in a lovely little traditional village that has everything that you could possibly want, and is perfectly located for exploring Santorini. The restaurants in the village were excellent, whether in the village square or outside.

We were looked after very well by the Concierge, Jackie, and all of the staff. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay.

We stayed with our two young children, but it's a very romantic setting so we're talking about returning on day for a wedding anniversary. As a honeymoon location it would be fabulous.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 9 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Villa Sofia (or Mansion Sophia as it is described here) is a beautiful haven in the prettiest village on Santorini which is full of local people rather than just being a holiday village. It is not Four Seasons luxury if that is what you are looking for. My wife and I went there for our 25th wedding anniversary. It was unbelievably romantic with our private pool. The village centre was 100 yards away but there was very little night time noise. The restaurants are good and the local people were all friendly. We could go out to busy Oia, Fira, or the beaches but then come home to peace and quiet. A rental car comes with the property. No BMW but a car that makes you fit in with everyone else. Just brilliant

“Mansion Sophia is a gem in Megalochori”
Reviewed 21 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in Mansion Sophia with our 3 teenage daughters. I thought places like this only existed in the movies! The town of Megalochori is charming and Mansion Sophia is a hidden gem. From the moment we arrived, everything was effortless. We were greeted at the airport with our car and were driven directly to Megalochori where we met Jackie our concierge who introduced to the town and villa. We felt like we were in a dream as we walked up the ancient cobblestone road lined with white houses. Mansion Sophia is more beautiful in person than I had imagined with a spectacular courtyard, an inviting pool and gorgeous decor. The master bedroom was large and the smaller bedroom was very comfortable. Our youngest daughter slept on the pull out in the living room and was very happy. The only problem was there was one small bathroom for the 5 of us and as I mentioned, we have three teenage girls so you can imagine the situation. It was all good though because we were on vacation and were in no hurry. Everything Jackie and Takis recommended to us to make our holiday enjoyable was spot on - from the restaurants and activities we honestly could not have asked for a better holiday!

“You'll Never Forget Mansion Sophia”
Reviewed 25 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Of our entire trip across the Greek islands, staying at the Mansion Sophia was certainly the greatest highlight. We were literally transported to another quieter, more relaxed world. Creating that type of experience requires a lot of hard work and a great understanding of hospitality. Takis and team really know what they are doing.

“Great Villa in a Great Location”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

My wife, 13-yo daughter and I stayed at Mansion Sophia for a week, and it was a brilliant choice. Megalochori is a small, peaceful town set back a bit from the sea, and the villa is up a small path from the centre of town where you can eat at four different restaurants, three of which we tried and two which we enjoyed (Marmita and Feggera). The pool is very private and where we spent most of our time when we were at the villa. The master bedroom is quite large, and while the smaller bedroom is on the small side, it would have been fine for a couple and was more than big enough for my daughter. The villa itself is charming. You have the basics and it's clean - in fact it's cleaned every day by a maid who always had a smile. The concierge Jackie met us when we arrived exactly as promised, and was very willing to help with whatever we needed, which wasn't much. The car that's provided as part of the rental was big enough for three people and our luggage, and we used it all the time during our stay - very convenient. All in all, a great place from which to launch your adventure every day.
