Archipel Mansion is perched on the highest point of Fira, the capital of Santorini. The area, as the Mansion itself, is steeped in a rich history. Boasting with an ever changing 180 degree view of the Santorini Archipelagos and the famed Caldera, this is a place for quiet reflection – drawing inspiration from the extraordinary – leaving one feeling positively revitalized.
Such is the power of the soul stirring vista; and with its whitewashed villages, charred black cliffs, and blue Aegean Sea, Santorini is one of the world’s top island destinations.
At Archipel Mansion we aim to offer you our ideal balance of contemporary Greek island life: natural living, privacy, comfort and a small glimpse into the everyday way of life.
Our philosophy is twofold.
Keep it Extraordinary: Private & Authentic, with laid-back luxury at its best.
Keep it Personal: Discreet Service with an “in” to the real Santorini.
Whether you’re looking for historical places of the world, sun drenched beaches, a family getaway, or simply savouring the view we look forward to sharing our elegantly crafted home with you.
By Airplane From Athens International Airport, Eleftherios Venizelos, it is an approximate 45 minute flight to the island of Santorini (JTR). In addition there are various international charter flights, which usually start in April through to October.
By Ferryboat Take the ferry from Piraeus past Paros and Naxos to the port of Athinios on Santorini. There is also a daily connection between Heraklion (Crete) and Santorini during the high season. During the summer high speed Catamarans operate from the Port of Piraeus. The trip from Pireaus to Santorini takes 4.5hrs with a high speed ferry.
Our pre-arrival services may help you save valuable holiday time and allow you to enjoy the Mansion from the moment you arrive. Please note that service fees apply.
Food Provisioning Allow us to stock the Mansion with your chosen groceries. We will provide you with a list with products available on the island. We endeavour to select the best seasonal fruit and vegetables, Greek cheeses, fresh bread etc. available on the market.

SHOPPING AT THE SUPER MARKET
The nearest large super market is situated on the main road leading out of Fira towards Perissa / Perivolos. You will see the first super market on your left with a sign “AB” – a 5 minute drive from the Mansion.
Driving Directions: Leave the parking area and turn LEFT. At the stop street turn RIGHT and drive down the hill towards the main square of Fira. When you reach the square you have to turn LEFT again and then follow the natural curve of the road. At the stop turn RIGHT and drive straight for about 150 meters. Take the first road to your RIGHT, and then LEFT. (We are almost there!) Drive straight for about 2 km until you see the sign for “AB” on your LEFT.
The villa is serviced daily. Our lovely housekeeper, Violetta, will come in daily to give the house a general clean, change the towels and linen on your third night. She has keys to enter the property, and will do her utmost not to disturb.
TO FLUSH OR NOT TO FLUSH?
If you are coming from a place where you are used to flushing loo paper, we can understand why you may think using the bin is a little weird! Truth of the matter is that in most cases you are dealing with a septic tank in others the sewer pipes are very narrow, and cannot deal with any paper, paper towels or any other foreign object thrown into the loo. Personally we think the whole system needs an overhaul – but for now, we urge you to USE THE BIN.
Should you require any laundry service, please leave your washing clearly visible to the housekeeper. We will endeavor to return it the next day. Charges are approximately Euro 20 for a 5 kilogram load and will be charged to your account. We cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss of laundry.
LOCKING UP THE HOUSE
For your protection, please ensure that all windows and doors are locked when you are away, even for a short period of time.
CONNECTION TO THE INTERNET
Wireless internet access is available from the Mansion in all the public areas. To login, please use the wireless code: (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
