“…this is a place for quiet reflection – drawing inspiration from the extraordinary…”
Archipel Mansion may accommodate up to eight guests and consists of the Mansion (Main House) and an adjacent studio, each one with its own private entrance. The property is united around a luxuriant, sun-drenched courtyard with various alfresco seating and dining areas. The nature and flow of the compound lends itself to freedom of movement and privacy for all. The Mansion, family owned for centuries, boasts a rich history. The house has been reconstructed taking the form of a contemporary interpretation of the neo-classical style, which was popular amongst the affluent inhabitants of the island around the 19th century. Highlights of the home include striking domes, thick walls and vaulted ceilings – the symbiosis of old and new results in an atmosphere of understated luxury and authenticity.
The location is hard to beat. Unsurpassed views overlooking the world famous Volcano, nestled in an unspoiled and discreet neighbourhood – and rather importantly – easy entrance to the Mansion. This translates into no endless footpaths, uphill and hard to navigate stairs to reach your accommodation.
If its hustle and bustle you’re after, the heart of Fira and Firostefani is a mere ten minute leisurely stroll away.
The décor is a delightful and eclectic mix of family heirlooms, modern pieces, old engravings, original paintings and treasures which are a feast to the eye. The effortless style is welcoming, comforting and one feels relaxed the moment you enter.
