3Arches ATraditional House is an oasis of Santorini dreams: Supremely private, delightfully luxurious and comfortably casual. Here is the place where endless views of the glistening blue Aegean and infinite azure skies capture the imagination and awaken the soul. Live the Cycladic island dream in Santorini’s most spectacular destination village.
Enjoy laid-back island sophistication at its best. Fine country antiques and vibrant original artwork mingle with traditional island textures in casual elegance and stylish simplicity. No detail has been overlooked in this architect designed home, which was transformed from a former historic Santorini building. The mansion is effortlessly suited for both casual relaxation and gracious entertaining. A little red wooden gate leads the way to luxury, as you step into the private enclosed courtyard. Hand formed walls of local volcanic stone surround lush gardens with olive trees, cascading fuschia flowers and hanging vines. Here there are so many opportunities to take in the amazing panoramic view of boundless blue sea and a crystal blue sky- so clear you can see all the way to the surrounding islands. Have a traditional Greek lunch in the cooling shade of the pergola, bask in the shimmering Greek sunlight on loungers, or dine al fresco under a blanket of stars at the handmade stone dining table of epic proportions. Try a traditional Greek barbecue with the built-in traditional barbecue oven, or simply take advantage of the outdoor wet bar for evening cocktails. The spectacular colors of Oia’s world-famous sunsets take center stage from this privileged perspective, where nature’s paintbrush creates a unique majestic masterpiece each and every day. The grand proportions of the large central open plan living room, dining room and kitchen are bright and airy, with soaring curved plaster walls and vaulted ceilings awash in soft sunlight. Rhythmic splashes of color mingle playfully with the soothing earth tones of handmade stone floors, gently worn antiques and soft white plaster. The sweet, self-catering kitchen features handmade terracotta tile, Italian marble countertops and everything you need to feel right at home. It is fully equipped with refrigerator, cooktop, oven, dishwasher, small convenience appliances, cookware, china and cutlery. Each of the three generous bedrooms has its own private exterior entrance, its own ensuite bathroom with built-in shower, large closets and A/C. Two bedrooms have queen size beds and one bedroom has two single beds. All have plenty of privacy. Each bedroom is unique in décor, with a tastefully cheerful and whimsical style. 3Arches Traditional House can accommodate families or groups of friends up to six guests seeking a unique summer retreat with complete privacy and comfortable elegance, in Santorini’s most famous traditional village.
Unlike most houses in Oia, 3Arches traditional House has private parking and no steps to climb. While many visitors are forced to find parking in a public lot and then walk to their accommodations, Mansion Oia offers complete convenience with parking just at the courtyard.
