Description

Vedema offers a rustic getaway with a secluded location on Santorini’s west coast in the medieval village of Megalohori. This spacious hotel boasts large suites and villas as well as transport to a local beach, making it an ideal choice for families.

With a central location towards the south of Santorini this is a fantastic base with a homely feel, in a traditional village away from the crowds of the north. The surrounding medieval village is reflected in the hotels own design, which also emulates a traditional Greek village, making this a spacious option with plenty of room for younger guests to explore and quiet raised patios to relax and enjoy Santorini’s endless sunshine. Set a little further inland, the hotel is sheltered from the strong winds of the coast and with fewer hotels here there is a homely atmosphere steeped in Greek tradition.  

The pool at Vedema is considerably larger in size compared to other hotels in Santorini and is surrounded by comfortable sun loungers and a large outdoor jacuzzi. Next to the pool is the Pergola restaurant and bar where you can enjoy delicious modern Greek food in the shade of the veranda, including fresh Greek salads, whilst soaking up the relaxing views of the surrounding village and vineyards, as well as the sea beyond.

A highlight of Vedema is Canava wine bar set in a 400-year-old winery, where the hotel offers an exciting wine tasting in an impressive setting. At Alati restaurant you may choose to dine al fresco on the expansive terrace or inside a former winery cave, maintaining a traditional design with exposed brick walls and high-domed ceilings, which at night is illuminated by candles to create an intimate, romantic setting. The carefully-created menu features sumptuous fine-dining Aegean seafood options with a rustic farm-to-table twist. 

The Asian spa features bamboo doors and walls and incorporates Thai and Indian techniques across a range of treatments, including massages and skin care rituals. There is also a small, but well-equipped fitness center and sauna.

Vedema also benefits from their private facilities on Perissa beach, featuring Santorini’s characteristic black sand. The beach facilities are open between May and October and is reachable by a complimentary minibus shuttle with a bar and restaurant also on site. There is plenty of space to relax or explore here giving good opportunities for families away from the island's high cliffs.

Being set back from the coastline affords this rustic property more space for larger pool areas, restaurants and outdoor space, a rarity in Santorini. Great for families looking for larger bedrooms and pool areas, as well as couples wanting to be a bit more private.
