Step into the authentic side of Santorini, away from the busy tourist spots and into a little local town called Messaria with all its charm, right in the middle of the island. This is where you'll find St. Alexander, a collection of four traditional villas of different local styles that in recent years have been lovingly renovated and decorated by their owner.
The villas lie in the quiet part of Messaria, in a small neighborhood called Vlachia, with winding island alleyways that reflect the intimate Cycladic island lifestyle and enchanting atmosphere. The three villas – Poseidon, Aphrodite and Triton – will all greet you with the warmth of their magical spaces and rooms. In the center of these traditional villas lies the little church of Agios Alexandros (Greek for Saint Alexander), which features beautifully painted frescoes and gave its name to the St. Alexander Villas.
Every suite in our villas is unique, with its own décor features and ambiance. All boast services such as wifi internet, mini-bar or fridge, high-end bedding from a small Greek producer, toiletries by natural product makers Korres, and in-room telephones. The warmer rooms with sunny windows have air conditioning, and the traditional cave-like ones don't need it, thanks to their bioclimatic architecture!
This unique stone-clad villa will impress you with its local Santorini architecture, but also with its interior décor. The owner, an avid traveler, imported furniture, doorways and artistic elements all the way from India, creating an eclectic mix between continents that surprisingly works very well. The building was originally a village bakery in the 1950s, and you can still see the old wood stove on the garden terrace. The rooms below were also actually water cisterns, transformed later into traditional Santorini cave-type accommodation that remains cool in summer and cozy in winter.
This gorgeous villa can be rented as one house or as two separate spaces on different floors. The lower floor has a kitchen, large dining area and two double rooms, each with its own private bathroom. The upper floor has another bedroom with bathroom, as well as a shared terrace and Mediterranean garden with olive trees and citrus trees.
Less than five minutes by foot lies the heart of the village of Messaria with its restaurants, 'tavernas', supermarkets, shops and coffee shops. Also noteworthy in Messaria is the Argyros Mansion built in 1888 by wine merchant Giorgios Argyros. It represents one of the island's most distinguished neoclassical buildings, and is now a museum open from May to October that offers guided tours, showing the wealth and glamour of one of the island's winemaking clans.
Beyond Messaria, a leisurely 15-minute walk will take you to Fira, the capital of Santorini, where you even have a bigger choice of museums, restaurants, outings and activities, plus spectacular views of the caldera. There are two beaches that are just minutes away by car, and you can even hike to one of them if you want a small adventure. In the meantime, the staff at the St. Alexander can arrange activities such as hiking, diving, and wine tours around the island.
