Dimael Mansion
Fira - Santorini

Dimael Mansion is located in Fira, the capital of Santorini. It is a neoclassical mansion built in the 19th century as the residence of the island’s then doctor.
Simplicity and taste...


It was renovated in 2017, and the building’s exterior was maintained unchanged; 50cm-thick walls built mainly out of black lava and Santorini land (volcanic ash), a marble-decorated façade, and vaulted ceilings inside. A distinctive element of the façade is the marble coat of arms depicting a two-headed eagle.
The building has been through minor, though subtle, architectural interventions combining its aristocratic aura with modern aesthetics, and it has been separated into three independent lodgings-suites. It should be noted that these architectural interventions caught the eye of the online architecture magazine which published a relevant article.
It is also worth noting that all of the property’s female owners since 1878 to date shared the name MARIA.

Accommodation in Fira - Santorini

Comfortable & modern rooms
Friendly and helpful owners. Very well located in Thira towards the Firostefani end with plenty of restaurants in close reach. Archeological museum is also 15min walk away. Short distance walking to the caldera with a view from the terrace to the sea to east (opposite to caldera). Spacious and very clean.
Thank you for lovely villa.Thank you Lila for nice welcome for us.She always provides necessary that I wanted and suggestions what interesting to do in Santorini .I feel comfortable when stay there just because covid so not open jacuzzi but however this perfect good enough for make you enjoy sun on rooftop and enjoy to do many activities in Santotini
Lila was perfect host. Nothing was too much trouble. Housekeeper was very friendly and efficient.
The privacy as no one else was staying in the other suites. Shower we powerful. We had a wondedul welcome basket too with some treats in it and water in the fridge. The maid was lovely. Felt wary safe and looked after. Plus Lilla was lovely and was on call for anything we needed. Loved our few days there. About a 5 to 10min walk into town. So it was quiet as the main road is always busy. The view from the roof is amazing and if you are a plan spotter you can watch the planes from there too!
A lovely 100yr old house beautifully renovated with original furniture. Terrace with shade, view to the east so good sunrise spot. In a fascinating labyrinth of alleyways. Short walk uphill to the crater rim and shops.
Lila was a great host and made sure that we had everything we needed for our stay. The property was about a 5-10-minute walk from the main Fira bus station, close enough to the action but at the same time hidden away from the noise and hustle of mass tourism. The room was spacious and clean. AC and fan were available and functional, which was greatly appreciated. Our stay came with complimentary bottles of water, snacks, and even a bottle of wine delivered by the charming cleaning lady. By day the property has views of the eastern (non-caldera) side of the island, but the best thing is the rooftop hot tub. Being able to use the jacuzzi under the Santorini stars after a long day of sighseeing is simply awesome.

I would highly recommend Dimael Mansion to anyone looking to stay close to central Thira. Lila was a super friendly and responsive host, quick to answer any questions or provide a recommendation. The Blue Room was a unique and spacious accommodation with beautiful views from the rooftop. The bathroom/ tub was worth the nightly cost alone - it felt like I had a spa in my house. I loved it. Would 100% recommend.
Lila was a fantastic and very accommodating host. She was always available to answer questions and very helpful with making transportation arrangements and providing recommendations. Our flight arrived very early, and Lila helped us with baggage storage while we waited for check-in which allowed us to set off right away to start exploring. The apartment was very nice and has air conditioning, which is quite welcome under the hot Grecian sun! Very close to the centre of Fira and all the restaurants/shopping. Rita, our housekeeper, was very helpful and kind.
The Host was really nice and well organized. The whirlpool on the rooftop was nice and warm. The beds are also really cool.
