Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 out of 5
Alba Lily is just lovely! The location is very good (although you really need a car to get about) and the village setting is charming. The house itself has tons of character and has been renovated to an incredibly high standard, with everything you need provided. Mark and Christine live next door and were brilliant - meeting us at the airport to show us the way to the house (despite a very late arrival) and organising sailing trips etc.

Santorini is a very beautiful island with some stunning scenery. The beaches aren't its best feature because of its volvanic origins, so the sand is mostly black and quite coarse and stoney. Some of the smaller beaches have only a limited number of sunbeds/shades so if you arrive in the afternoon they will probably be all taken. But the bigger beaches (Perissa and Kamari - we preferrred Kamari but Perissa has the water sports) have hundreds of sunbeds as all the tavernas along the strip have their own patch of beach. So choose where you'd like to have lunch and then you can use the taverna's sunbeds. And you will need a sunbed - the sand gets incredibly hot!

The sunset wine tasting at Santos Wines is well worth it (you can just have 'normal' drinks if you don't want to do the whole tasting thing) and the catamaran sailing is not cheap, but really wonderful - ask Mark and Christine to set it up. We also enjoyed the wine tasting at the Vedema hotel in the village (super swanky hotel, celeb regulars etc - call in for a drink and wander around like you own it!).

All in all, a great holiday on a lovely island. But it was the beautiful house which really made it special. We felt really lucky to call it 'ours' for a week.

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 out of 5
We immediately fell in love with the villa and the village, both truly exceptional!
Our hosts, Christine and Mark, were fantastic throughout: very responsive by email at the enquiry stage and most welcoming and helpful during our stay. Since they live nextdoor, and since Mark comes every morning to clean the pool, it is really easy to get in touch and ask questions. They had excellent advice on where to eat and what to do. The transfer from and to the boat was included in the stay, which was very nice since it would not be so easy to find the house on your own.
The villa is as described on Homeaway’s website, pristine, comfortable and very beautiful. The view on the nearest church and on the village from the terrace on top is amazing. The pool is small, like most in Santorini, but large enough for four people and a more-than-welcome place to cool down.
The village is quiet and charming, not overly touristic despite the occasional group of tourists wandering around. Many Greeks live there permanently, giving it a very authentic feel.
There are many restaurants and beaches to try out around the island, and a number of gorgeous villages.
We rented a car, which came in very handy, though it is technically possible to just use the public bus system. Christine and Mark can advise on where to rent a vehicle.
Thanks again, Christine and Mark, for your hospitality and kindness, this was a wonderful stay!

Perfect holiday home in a beautiful village

  • 5 out of 5
If you want to experience the real beauty of Santorini, then Alba Lily is the perfect place for you. Away from the busy tourist resorts, but still accessible by a short bus ride, this beautiful cave house is situated in the very pretty little village of Megalochori.

We have stayed in many villas across Europe, so our expectations are always high. Alba Lily is now at the top of the list! The house is simply stunning, attention paid to every detail to make your stay perfect. Mark and Christine were great hosts, from picking us up at the airport and collecting heavy stuff from the supermarket for us to sharing their local knowledge.

If you can tear yourself away from the roof terrace and out of the pool, then there's so much to see and do.

Oia was our favourite day out, no trip to Santorini would be complete without going there.

More locally, sunset at Santo Winery is a great way to spend an evening. A very short bus ride and well worth it. And a trip to Pyrgos to see the sunset from Franco's cafe is another must.

In Megalochori there are around 9 restaurants, all are really good. Fegarra was our favourite. Great tomato balls!

All in all, this was a perfect holiday! We will definitely be back.

Just Great!!

  • 5 out of 5
Mark met us at the airport and patiently waited for us to receive our hire car. Mark and Christine were more than happy to share their knowledge on restaurants, bars, activities, places to visit, plus amenities such as best car hire and the nearby excellent bakery (spinach pie a must!). We had hired a car when booking our holiday and found it very useful for exploring the island, although it is not essential. The village has many restaurants and all are good although the price of wine varies which can add to the overall bill. Highlights included a trip to Oia, a catamaran sunset tour and dinner at Metaxi Mas in Exo Gonia, a ten minutes drive away. You may want to take a taxi there but it is well worth it!! The villa is absolutely pristine and exceeded expectations with attention paid to every last detail, and our standards are high. The owners really have thought of everything. We would recommend this property to anyone seeking a village with a lovely lively atmosphere where it is easy to reach anywhere on the island but is not focused on attracting the 18-30’s. Mark and Christine have invested much effort and care, making it a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable experience. We will return.

Magical Escape

  • 5 out of 5
We loved this home. It was beautifully decorated -- the owners have perfectly blended traditional architecture and contemporary simplicity. The town is quiet and a wonderful escape from the more touristy areas of the island. Centrally located with easy access to beaches and the lovely mountain town of Pyrgos. It was exactly the experience we wanted to share with our children. To top it all off, the owners were amazingly kind, generous, and thoughtful. We couldn't have hoped for more.

Megalochori is one of the most peaceful and traditional villages on the island of Santorini. The property is a short walk to the village square where there are three excellent restaurants offering Greek and international food. You can't fail to notice the large number of wine tasting places here and indeed this village is at the heart of the island's wine making industry. Many of the bigger facilities, like Boutari, are on the village's outskirts among the vineyards.
