Tucked away within the medieval village of Megalohori, the enchanting Vedema Resort has evolved from a 400-year-old wine cellar and a 100-year-old mansion into an authentic, Cycladic-styled property. Located on the western side of the island of Santorini, Vedema Resort is encircled by a traditional stone wall and surrounded by emerald vineyards, in an intimate setting just 7 km from Santorini’s airport and 5 km from the port. A stylish, family-friendly resort, Vedema houses 59 spacious suites and villas, all with their own terraces or patios and many with private jacuzzis or pools. The complex of rooms has been traditionally handcrafted to reflect the warmth and sophistication befitting the island. The Mediterranean climate and Santorini’s rich volcanic soil have proved to be nourishing sources for local produce, which are used in preparing the refined dishes of Vedema’s restaurants, imparting unique tastes and distinctive aromas. A culinary highlight here is certainly Alati restaurant, which can be found in the property's 400-year-old wine cellar. Nestled among the lush gardens of Vedema’s grounds, the sparkling pool is ideal for guests wishing to rest and recharge, dip in the refreshing waters, bask in the bright island sun or lounge at the adjacent pool bar. A 10-minute drive from the resort, one finds Vedema’s private facilities at the black sand beach of Perivolos. Umbrellas and sunbeds are available for relaxing under the sun, while Mediterranean snacks, cooling beverages and signature cocktails are served until sundown. A complimentary shuttle is available for hotel guests.
