Tucked away within the medieval village of Megalohori, the enchanting Vedema, A Luxury Collection Resort, has evolved from a 400-year-old wine cellar and a 100-year-old mansion into an authentic, Cycladic-styled property. Dedicated to the needs of seasoned travellers, the resort has gained renown as a charming, luxurious and intimate retreat. Located on the western side of the island of Santorini, it is encircled by a traditional stone wall and surrounding vineyards that overlook the village and the outlying Aegean Sea.
The hotel has been seamlessly integrated into one side of Megalohori, incorporating the ancient cellars that have been sensitively restored. Sunken pathways guide the way to the subterranean cave restaurant, a well-stocked wine cellar and the world-class Elios Spa. The architecture pays homage to the traditional fortified Greek village that still stands strong today where indigenous elements have influenced the decor and the carefree Grecian hospitality encourages a causal, barefoot philosophy.
The Presidental Villa
This century-old neoclassical Eliopoulos Mansion, originally a captain's house, was designed by celebrated Greek decorator Aggelos Aggelopoulos. Incorporating the customary colour combination of white and turquoise, he has given the villa an authentic, modern feel that reflects the culture that 19th Century ship owners arriving from travels abroad, brought to Santorini. White is customary of Cycladic architecture and the turquoise dates to the long-held Greek belief that this particular shade of blue has the power to ward off evil.
In the generous living room, stone floors, a chandelier, and hand-decorated ceilings demarcate neoclassical style while modern art provides unique bursts of colour. Antique furniture presents lounging options for sharing a glass of complimentary Santorini white wine or a beverage from the bar. A 42-inch plasma TV with satellite channels, Tivoli sound system with CD and DVD player, Wi-Fi access, and individually controlled air conditioning ensure all modern needs are met and entertainment options offered.
A fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator invites guests to share a private meal at the dinner table. Look forward to a Full American Breakfast served in the villa at the time and place of guests' preference. Private dining is offered in the villa's spacious living room, on the terrace, or on the patio overlooking the swimming pool.
Three serene bedrooms house white linens on remote-control adjustable beds, which are balanced by curvaceous modern turquoise lamps and other sophisticated details along with a 25-inch flat screen TV. Smooth wooden floors lead to walk-in closets.
Each bedroom has an en-suite turquoise mosaic bathroom equipped with a hydro-massage bathtub and rainforest shower. Enjoy KORRES bath amenities, plush bathrobes, and slippers. Hairdryers and makeup mirrors are also supplied.
Outdoors, the exceptional villa grounds boast 200-square-meters of private patios and verandas. A heated hydro-massage pool is positioned on the patio and an open-air Jacuzzi resides in the courtyard.
