At the highest spot of Oia village, the terrace exposes the unobstructed views of the Caldera, the surrounding islands, the abundance of colors and shades, the reflection of the sunset on the water, the singular beauty of the Cycladic architecture with the small white houses built amphitheatrically clinging on the edge of the cliff...

Whatever one’s preconceptions of Santorini, this terrace will exceed your expectations by far .

The choice for a blessed wedding, romantic surprise proposal or renewal of vows for couples across the globe. You may either dine alone, or stage a memorable reception. Our experienced wedding planner stands by with an assortment of fine options.

The Terrace is also the place to simply relax watching the sunset, have a drink or dine.

Oia Mansion's Jacuzzi level

Jacuzzi! The stylish clue of Oia Mansion's terrace that enhances the pleasure of the scenery!

Have a drink, watch the sunset, the Caldera and contemplate under the stars or make wishes, privately or with company, while the water soothes your bodily strains.

Oia Mansion's Yard

In front of the mansion, the “yard” is really the terrace of the traditional times on the island. It has equally panoramic views, which is complemented by the neoclassical facade.

Pebble paved in the island’s tradition and with a large wooden table, it is ideal for breakfast, dinning, coffee, children’s play, relaxation or entertainment.

Oia Mansion's “Inner Yard”

Decorated in the traditional island mode, the inner yard, is the tasteful architectural surprise element of Oia Mansion.

Harmonious blending of earthly colors and terra cotta, the build sofa and limpet shaped white table, create an ideal ambiance for reading a book, informal meals, card games…

Aegean Balcony

Read a book or watch the cruise ships with the Aegean islands in the background. Sikinos, Folegandros,Ios, Iraklia, Shinousa, Koufonisia, Amorgos, Anafi and sometimes Milos, Antiparos and Astipalea.

Oia Mansion's Indoors

Be The Noble Lord Of The Mansion...

High vaulted ceilings in the living spaces, integration of tradition in the neoclassical architecture, fluid lines, colors, textures and handpicked furniture were aimed to serve the noble owners and their honorable guests.

Uplifting elegance, “royal” style and contemporary conveniences give you a spontaneous sense of belonging: you are at home.

Reception and Sea–Captain's Office

With elegant decoration, details on the ceiling and soothing colors, the reception and Sea-Captain’s office establish a homely felling.

The Sea-Captain’s office with the antique furniture, the captain’s desk, the typewriter, the chair with sea blue fabric and the portrait of Loucas Nomicos (1st descendant) commences the journey to the glorious era. Equipped with printer and Wi-Fi the sea-captain’s office allows you to keep up with business needs.

Oia Mansion's Dining Area

Dine in “royal” style in Oia Mansion’s dining room, or rather dining area as it is strategically located in the middle of the Living room, inner terrace and the Sea-Captain’s office.

The epoch furniture: the Georgian chandelier, the Venetian hand carved wooden cabinet and mirror, the large dining table that can be extended to seat up to ten persons, the elegant beige textured wall and the curved ceilings make you mentally participate in the majestic old time dinners.

Oia Mansion's Living Room

The living room is an equally gracious space with high cross-vaulted ceilings, beige textured walls, the authentic wooden floors and the large sculptured Venetian mirror.

It has hosted legendary “vengeras”, as were called the evening parties of the era with dinner, music and dancing. Aristocratic though it may be, the living room is comfortable and cozy.

It evokes a serene homely feeling, whereby the engaging pleasure of the space, takes your imagination for ride. It puts you in the mood for dancing a waltz with your partner.

To keep in touch with the present, the living room is equipped with a discrete 42” flat screen 3D TV, cable TV and home cinema that facilitates independent sources like iPod, DVD’s etc.

Oia Mansion's Bedrooms

Lavish and yet simple, with fluid lines, traditional and modern, uplifting and pacifying, they travel you back in time and evoke film like dreams.

Named after family members, Oia Mansion’s four bedrooms make you feel at home, as though you’ve been there before.

They comfortably accommodate up to eight people in a variety of options.

Oia Mansion's Kitchen

The Kitchen is another hidden jewel of Oia Mansion.

Whereas the space, the original intact floor tiles creating a staircase - serpentine illusion and the elegant door, in Cycladic blue, decorated with forged iron, travel you back in time, its modern equipment (stove, oven, microwaves, refrigerator, espresso coffee maker and a number of other appliances) bring you back to the present.

Conveniently located, it accesses directly and can discreetly service the two yards and the terrace.

Oia Mansion's Rooms

Discrete and traditional Oia Mansion’s four bedrooms make you feel at home, as though you’ve been there before. Special attention has been paid to providing for a good night’s relaxing sleep, a warranty to wake up in high spirit.

Beds, mattresses, pillows and linen by Coco-Mat International, a company specializing in professional bedding systems, guarantee a restful, good night’s sleep, sweet dreams that travel you to the glorious times.

A lot of great, a few almost great

  • 4 of 5

The house was beautiful, clean, quiet, and perfectly located for sunset views. A real sanctuary from the hordes of people cramming Santorini every day. One of the ensuite showers was very small, and the metal of the hot water side of the faucet will burn you. Also water temperatures vary with other people's usage. The kitchen was not real clean and needed updated, but you probably don't want to use it much anyway with all the good restaurants at your disposal. Breakfasts were plentiful and tasty. Having a included airport pickup and return was a bonus.

We had a delemina that may not effect many, but since we were on an island cruise for seven days before Santorini, and we travel in carry-ons, all eight of us needed the clothes washer but it does not exist. Oia does not have a laundry mat so we had no options but to hand wash in the sink, or pay hotel level laundry rates to the mansion "monitor". The promised drying rack never appeared. On the morning of the third day, the owner finally agreed to furnish some laundry service, from which the clothes were returned at 6PM the day before our departure.
