Argyros Mansion, the only restored and open to the public mansion in Santorini. In the heart of the island, the village of Messaria, once the winemaking center of Santorini, the part that the delicious vinsanto wine and the commercialization of Santorinian wines gave a different tone in the everyday life of the island with an aura of glamour and wealth that characterized the 19th century.

This is an historic home and not a hotel as seen under hotels on TripAdvisor l, so I will review it here in the correct place. Today, we needed 5 Euros cash each for the tour. Temperature-wise, it is relatively cool inside. Our guide spoke...More

We have visited recently the nice, well kept and interesting Argyros Mansion. The guide was friendly, informed. The only shadow is the not distinguished entrance fee for children - up to 10years old should pay the 10€. We understand, the house is private owned, but...More

One of the few historic house-museums open to the public in Greece. Beautifully and meticulously restored after the 1956 earthquake, it belonged to a prosperous wine merchant family. Much of the furniture and possessions still belong to their descendants. The home is a fascinating glimpse...More
