This villa rental is located on the Grecian island Santorini with picturesque views of surrounding vineyards and other beautiful sites. The island has hundreds of villages perched on the edges of cliffs that each offer their own unique views. You can visit the Santorini Volcano and view some amazing frozen lava formations and maybe even see some steam rise from the rocks around the volcano. There are also several black sand beaches throughout the island’s coast. Cliff jumping is a common activity on the island for those who like adrenaline highs!
An interesting fact about the island is that it used to have a circular shape, but the island’s volcano had an eruption so strong that it caused the center of the island to sink. Some believe that this eruption was responsible for the extinction of the Minoan Civilization of Crete Island, Greece. You know the story with the Minotaur and the labyrinth? Yeah, that civilization. The two islands are next to each other in the Aegean Sea, but they are separated by many miles. Of course this is just one (unproven) theory, and we may never know for sure.
Greece is full of fascinating myths. If you visit be sure to check them out! Each island and area in Greece is sure to have different tales to tell. Now on to details about this particular villa rental on Santorini island:
“The Mansion Kiara is situated on a quiet path in the quaint village of Megalochori. At the turn of the century the Mansion was serving as a winery and cellar. The original structure has been sensitively renovated, and has been restored to its original splendour, retaining the original layout and traditional features. A barn-door leads you into the open-plan living space, affording a wonderful entertainment area. The smooth curves, alcoves and lighting of the minimalistic interior add to the unique atmosphere of staying there. An archway leads you into a corridor where the three bedrooms are. The comfortable master bedroom has a wonderful view to the pool and the colorful garden of the Mansion. The other two bedrooms are on the other side of the corridor. A large comfortable vanity bathroom with tub is also along this corridor to serve the bedrooms. The smooth-edged carved interior provides a cool and relaxing haven during the hot summer days.
In the large courtyard of the Mansion the guests can relax on the sun beds, swim in the pool or enjoy epicurean meals on the outdoors dining area, shaded by a wooden pergola. From the courtyard, stairs lead up to the terrace where you can enjoy the view of the vineyards and the sea on the distance. This Villa can accommodate up to 6 guests. Mansion Kiara provides a perfect base for those wanting to experience the many rhythms of the island.” [Greece Villa Rentals: Villa VMS KIA | 3BR Rental.]
