Mania is located just two minutes away from the picturesque village center of Megalochori where you can find traditional tavernas and shops while wandering around alleys with traditional houses and bougainvilleas.
It can accommodate up to 10 people, so it’s perfect for families and groups of friends, even wedding parties without the slightest compromise in privacy and comfort.Every corner of the mansion is carefully designed with antiques and traditional style furniture, that look amazing in the natural light that comes generously through the windows.
So, gather your loved ones and plan your visit to Mania. You will find yourself soaking in the swimming pool, relaxing on the hammock or on the mansion’s rooftops, gazing the panoramic views to the famous Santorini vineyards, in no-time.
The mania’s history goes back a whole century.
Back then, the first floor of the mansion was the residence of the family that owned the winery and cellar, operating at the ground floor. In the “canava” -wine cellar and workshop-, the world-famous Vinsanto wine was produced and exported to Russia, where it was used by the Russian Orthodox Church for the Holy Communion. However, the Russian Revolution took its toll on the once flourishing Vinsanto businesses of the island.
Since then, Mania has been sensitively renovated, keeping the authentic features untouched but enhancing the luxury and comfort elements for every guest. Even today, you can see the cylindrical troughs used for distilling Vinsanto, sunk into the ground, creating extraordinary lighting effects, while three large barn-style doors lead the visitors from the cobbled courtyard to the rooms. The smooth-edged carved interior is designed to be naturally cool during the hot summer days, while the swimming pool provides an extra summer breeze.
