Archipel Mansion is situated in an exclusive neigbourhood at the highest point of Fira. The location is hard to beat. Unsurpassed views overlooking the world famous Volcano, nestled in a well-preserved and discreet neighborhood - and rather importantly - easy entrance to the Villa. This translates into no endless footpaths, uphill and hard to navigate stairs to reach your accommodation. If its hustle and bustle you're after, the heart of Fira is a mere ten minute leisurely stroll away.
Owned by the same family for two centuries, the Villa boasts a rich history. Reconstructed from old drawings of the original 18th century mansion with striking domes, thick walls and vaulted ceilings - the Villa offers understated luxury, privacy and authenticity.
Archipel Mansion accommodates up to10 guests and consists of a Main House and a Guest House. Upon entering the Main House, you immediately feel at ease. High cross-vaulted ceilings are not only a notable traditional feature, but also allows for a fresh and spacious feeling to the house. Your eye is immediately drawn to the lounge with large windows and doors leading out to the verandah and that all-inspiring view.
The kitchen is simply charming, well-equipped with modern features, and quirky add-ons. One is sure to enjoy preparing breakfast and light meals in this pleasant environment.
You will find two double en-suite bedrooms on the ground floor with the third double bedroom up a short flight of stairs, delighting its occupants with an uninterrupted view of the Caldera.
All bedrooms are fully air-conditioned and two of the bedrooms can be converted to twin bedded rooms. The great design of the home allows for easy access and a great indoor-outdoor flow, allowing you to enjoy the out-of-doors living, which lazy summers on an Aegean island are all about.
The Guest House has its own easily accessible private entrance and the house consists of two levels.
Upon entry you will reach the first double bedroom which has a light and airy feel. Quirky decorative touches, an en-suite bathroom, kitchenette and private verandah with el-fresco seating complete it perfectly.
The second double bedroom is reached via an external flight of stairs, which leads you to the entrance and a wonderful shaded courtyard. One has to feel the heat of the Greek sun on your skin, to truly appreciate the shaded reprieve. This part of the Guest House consists of two adjoining rooms. Upon entry there is a comfortable seating area and a kitchenette, perfect for preparing light snacks, and a spacious and bright double bedroom with bathroom.
Both bedrooms can be turned into twin beds should you prefer.
Archipel Mansion allows for a perfect base to enjoy the Caldera on your doorstep or explore the white-washed villages of Santorini.

Archipel Mansion is a hidden gem at a walking distance from the center of Fira, the capital of Santorini. It is located in the most unspoiled part of the old town and perfect to enjoy & relax at the various terraces of this complex.
Only few meters away from St. Stylianos,St. John Catholic Cathedral, The Megaron Gyzi ,the Nomikos Conference Center & cable car.
Fira is the capital of Santorini, clinging dramatically to the Caldera cliffs in the west of the island directly opposite the volcano. It is Santorini's cultural and commercial hub and there are plenty of reasons to visit: museums, galleries, parties and plenty of shops. Fira heads Santorini's nightlife selection: many bars, cafes and eateries are actually on the Caldera, while other bars, and even clubs, are tucked into the quant cobbled streets weaving through the town. The whole town is connected by a footpath at the cliff's edge, starting just above the Archeological museum and finishing on the hill at the Nomikos Centre where Archipel Mansion is nestled on the Cliffside. Volcano views dominate from every angle, and sunsets are mesmerising from this vantage point. 'Sunset O'Clock' in Santorini is a wonderful daily event when everything and everyone stops moving to watch the show.
