Welcome to ‘The Winery Estate’ a unique blend of traditional architecture, history and style coupled with modern convenience. Accommodating 12 guests with indoor and outdoor facilities it is a perfect blend of location, comfort and convenience for your stay in Santorini.


The Winery Estate is ideally located in the peaceful village of Megalochori - One of the true gems of Santorini. The property’s location means an easy stroll will take you to the picturesque village square, which plays host to an array of quaint tavernas and shops, along with a mini market and a locally renowned bakery. Its central setting allows for a short drive to all parts of the island, including the Caldera, Fira, Oia, Amoudi Bay and the beaches of Perissa and Kamari. The Winery Estate is the perfect base for all your activities on Santorini and ensures easy access to the best that the island has to offer whilst also providing a relaxing and peaceful getaway when required.


Dating back to the 17th century, The Winery Estate was originally called Canava Beko and exported its wine all over the Aegean. You will notice that the floors are all ever so slightly sloping so when the wine was pressed, it would naturally run into the large pits in the ground, called "muster pits", from here it would be paled out and once in the barrels it would be stored lined up on each side of the main chamber (now the living room and kitchen). These centuries old muster pits are still visible in the property however are covered with glass that supports up to 300kg of weight. The property retains many of the original features, even the old metal pulley which would hoist the barrels on to the backs of donkeys for transport and is still hanging from the ceiling in the living room.


Around 1930 Canava Beko stopped producing wine. The property was abandoned and fell into disrepair, which was the condition in which we found and fell in love with this unique property. Starting in 2008 Canava Beko has undergone a loving 7 year restoration and modernisation bringing the property up to an immaculate standard to ensure a comfortable and carefree stay for all guests for what is now lovingly called ‘The Winery Estate ’


Furnished with care and attention to detail with pieces chosen to compliment unique architectural style, the property comfortably accommodates 12 guests in complete privacy. 


The main house sleeps 10 guests with 4 air conditioned bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and features a large fully equipped kitchen including all appliances, cutlery and crockery as well as a lounge and dining area with a open fire place to comfortably accommodate all guests.
