Overview

Villa/House Quirky Modern Self-Catered Ideal for Kids Hot Tub Walk to Beach Walk to Village

Murex Mill is the property with the Wow factor! Enjoy staying in a circular windmill-style villa overlooking the celebrated blue domed roofs of the old town of Oia, on the north coast of Santorini, a Cycladic island in the southern Aegean Sea. Villa Murex has two double bedrooms, and can comfortably accommodate up to four guests, ideal for a small family, or two couples sharing. This luxury villa is built into the hillside, constructed out of classic whitewashed Cycladic stone, and commands sweeping views of the azure Aegean Sea. The property is round, with lots of curves inside and out, with traditional domed ceilings and circular walls. The interiors are super stylish, minimalist chic, for maximum impact. The villa is furnished with contemporary pieces, lots of natural local wood, and decorated in a soft palette of earth tones.

Murex Mill comes with all the mod cons, including complimentary air conditioning and Wi-Fi throughout. Enter the property through an arched wooden gate, where you will be greeted by a stunning sea-view terrace. Take the stairs to the villa, where you will find your light and airy holiday home from home. There is a seating area with coffee tables and a flat-screen television. A galley-style kitchenette is fully equipped with everything you will need to cater for your holiday, including that must-have morning coffee maker. The beautifully-appointed master bedroom has a domed roof, a large double bed, freestanding chairs, and open shelving. A hallway leads to a huge circular bathroom with a walk-in rain shower, and a separate vanity unit and WC. The second bedroom also has a double bed, with an ensuite shower room, and has a separate entrance from the courtyard.

The terrace is terrific, with a sunken sea view Jacuzzi, take a dip on a hot afternoon and watch the super yachts sail by. Ship-style wooden white cushioned sun loungers and deckchairs with matching parasols are perfect for sitting back in the sunshine and catching up on this year’s best seller. A sea views soft seating area is ideal for a morning coffee catch-up, and a sundowner as you watch in wonder at the famous Oia sunsets. A patio table and chairs are just right for dining alfresco and enjoying a feast of local delicacies as the stars come out to shine, and you raise a glass to the most memorable of holidays.

  • There are steps up to the property, and within in, and a steep walk into town, which may be difficult for those with mobility issues

Murex Mill is bang in the centre of the postcard town of Oia, on the north coast of Santorini, a Cycladic island in the southern Aegean Sea. The villa is sixteen kilometres from Santorini’s International Airport, and nineteen kilometres from the port of Athinios. Arrive by plane from European destinations and Athens, island hop by ferry and catamaran, or if you are feeling super stylish, you can even make an entrance by helicopter. The villa is just a few minutes walk from the nearest minimart and shops for provisions to cater for your holidays. Cafes and bars, restaurants and nightclubs, are within walking distance.

The nearest beach is Katharos, a kilometre and a half away, this secluded unspoilt, unorganised beach has dark sand and pebbles, and is far away from the madding tourist crowds. The nearby old town of Oia is rather magical, a fishing village, with a maze of colourful lanes, populated with exclusive boutiques, leading down to the harbour. Seek solace in blue-domed Greek Orthodox churches, tilt at windmills, visit the Naval Museum, cliff dive off Ammoudi Bay, and then enjoy freshly caught seafood, on the seafront. Stay for the famous sunsets, after all, it’s what we all came on holiday for. Stroll the nine-kilometre trail and hike the Caldera edge until you get to the capital town of Fira, on the west coast. In Fira town centre there are lots of museums, choose from the Santorini Wine Museum, the Archeological Museum of Thera, the Museum of Prehistoric Fira, or the Tomato Museum. Take a walk up the top of Thera Mountain, where you can explore the ancient city ruins, and admire the views from the world’s only sunken caldera.

Take a boat trip to the uninhabited islet of Nea and Palia Kameni, an active volcano, with a path of black lava rock, smoking craters, and sulphurous hot springs. Visit the villages and find out what life was really like. Highly recommended is Pyrgos, found in the foothills of Mount Profitis, surrounded by vineyards that produce the highly prized Assyrtiko white wines. Take a trip back in time as you walk down the steep medieval alleyways, populated with tavernas and wine bars, art galleries and gift shops, a museum that showcases traditional island life, and one that is home to religious relics in the former Agia Triada chapel. Don’t miss a visit to Akrotiri, a prehistoric city, that was believed to be the first settlement on the island dating back to Neolithic times. For more recent history, The Arygyros Mansion has guided tours of this neo-classical Venetian merchant’s home. Santorini hosts an annual film festival, and the twice-daily film screenings at the alfresco Cine Kamari are not to be missed.

The island is renowned for its fabulous wines, most especially the crisp dry whites, take a tour of one of the many vineyards, and make sure you take a bottle home with you. The Cycladic architecture, the blue domes, and the most stunning sunsets are what the island is famous for, and to help you capture those memories, you can even take a photography tour. If you can bear to tear yourself away from this most mystical of destinations, spend a day island hopping, swimming and snorkelling in the azure Aegean Sea, enjoying a meal of Greek meze on board, or simply watching the sunset as you sail back into the harbour

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids

There are lots for kids to do and see when you holiday on the beautiful island of Santorini. The villa has a sea view terrace and a Jacuzzi, for a cooling down dip. The old town centre of Oia is nearby, where you can walk the winding lanes of this original fishing village, which dates to the Middle Ages and is believed to be linked to the Lost City of Atlantis.. Explore the picturesque blue-domed town, and discover the iconic windmills, originally built to grind wheat for bread. Your older children may like to hike the caldera edge, a nine-kilometre walk to the town of Fira on the west coast. Santorini is populated with the most incredible volcanic black, red, and white, sandy beaches, with superb crystal clear water sea.

The nearest beach is Kathoros, a kilometre and a half from the villa, an unspoilt, unorganised pebbly beach with a rocky landscape and steep entry, which may not be suitable for younger children. Alternatively just a little further away is Baxedes beach, which is organised with sun beds and brollies, it has dark sand and pebbles, and easy entry to shallow waters. Particularly recommended for being family-friendly with organised facilities, cafes and bars, and some with water sports, are the black sand Monolithos, Pristina, Kamari, Red, White, and Perivolos beaches. Beware the darker sand can get very hot in high season, and aqua shoes are a must for adults and children alike. A day out to the island’s capital town Fira is a twenty-kilometre journey by car. Here you can visit museums, discover archaeological sites, climb up Ancient Thera, and marvel at the volcanic Caldera. No holiday in Santorini is complete without a family day at sea, joining a boat tour, hiring a catamaran, or charter a yacht, and island hopping around the Cyclades. Swim, snorkel, and scuba in azure seas, dine aboard on a meal of Greek meze, get on a jet ski, or learn how to stand up paddleboard.

Children love a trip to the live volcanic islet of Nea and Palia Kameni, where you can walk through black lava, smoking craters, and smelly sulphurous springs. Have some fun at the mini golf in Kamari, where you can all practice your putting. Go on a jeep safari and take a tour of the villages, learn about the local flora and fauna, and traditional way of life. Absorb the history of the island at Akrotiri, where they can explore one thousand-year-old ruins, in an area dating back to 4500BC. Take them to SAWA, an animal sanctuary for the island’s dogs, cats, and donkeys. As the sun sets, watch the stars under the stars, at the alfresco Cine Kamari, where you can all enjoy a screening of your favourite movies.
