House overview - owner's description



Petra House is a tiny treasure for two, nestled in the heart of picturesque Megalochori village. This little gem is just a two-minute stroll from the quaint village square, with its famous local restaurants beneath pretty Venetian bell towers. The gently sloping path to the house winds through whitewashed walls with a ceiling of azure sky.

Luxurious intimacy is everywhere in this unique home, a palette of inviting textures and sensual colors. Stylish simplicity and elegant comfort are all around. The smooth plaster walls of the airy rooms are dressed in creamy whites with splashes of cheerful color. Carefully selected antiques mingle with classic built-in Cycladic furniture.

The comforting rhythms of the house echo within the tranquil private courtyard. While away the afternoon soaking up the sunlight by the pool. Enjoy a quiet lunch in the cool shade, serenaded by the bubbling fountain. Spend an enchanting evening in, accompanied by only the dramatic mood lighting and the starry sky.

Petra House is perfect for a couple seeking a cozy get-away with unique Santorini style with a twist and all the comforts of home.


Petra House, named for the exterior walls that are covered in local volcanic stone, once was a winery and cellar (or “canava”) for producing Vinsanto at the turn of the century. Vinsanto is a sweet dessert wine, which originated in Santorini, and is still produced here for export around the world. At the turn of the century, Vinsanto production was among the island’s most lucrative industries. Most of the product was exported at that time to Russia, for use by the Russian Orthodox Church during the Holy Communion ritual. It is quite literally named after this use: “Vin” for wine and “santo” for saint, in the Italian language used by the Venetian shipping merchants who also played a prominent role in Santorini history. The Russian demand for Vinsanto came to an end with the Russian Revolution, having a major impact on the scale of this industry in Santorini.

The original structure has been sensitively renovated, preserving original elements as creative design features, relics of the building’s important role in Santorini history. The sunken cylindrical troughs visible on the floor, which now act as unusual lighting features, were actually once used for distilling the Vinsanto after the grapes were pressed. The beautiful organic shape and proportions of the smooth walls, vaulted ceilings and arched openings tell the story of the canava and how it was constructed by carving into the soft pumice stone of the village hills.

At a distance of 7 klm far from Fira at the Southwest, it is found Megalochori. Its name in greek means "big village", but in fact with 460 permanent residents, the name is not fully justified! However, Megalochori is one of the most representative villages of Santorini, having kept almost intact its features. Typical traditional cycladic houses, neoclassic buildings and small houses dug in the volcanic rock blend together with harmony.

Megalochori is located in the centre of Santorini offering easy access to Fira and the beaches nearby. It is built according to the traditional architecture of Cyclades and has maintained the local character. The area around Megalohori is full of vineyards and during the harvest the roofs of the houses are full of grapes drying under the sun for the famous “vinsanto” wine.
