Make a holiday villa in Megalochori your home away from home

There is a group of islands off the Aegean coast in Greece known as Cyclades. Of the 220 islands that make up this locale are a smaller group that go by the name Santorini. This archipelago has long been a tourist magnet thanks to the calderas that are evidence of the recent volcanic activity that formed the islands. The inhabited islands are also known for the trademark white, single-storey houses that put a lovely white cap on the caldera like a mountain with a snowy peak. Tourists to this part of Greece can enjoy comfortable lodgings in Megalochori holiday homes which offer a unique combination of traditional Greek architecture and modern furnishings. Of the rentals offered by HomeAway, majority are magnificent, spacious villas that command stunning views. These Megalochori holiday villas also have an array of exciting facilities such as swimming pools and satellite TV.

Things to do

-Calderas: If you needed proof that Santorini is the most active section of the South Aegean Volcanic Arc, a tour of the awe-inspiring calderas will do the trick. 3,600 years ago a phenomenal explosion known as the Minoan Eruption was experienced. What was left was the caldera visible today along with the cliffs visible alongside it. one of the best places from which to enjoy the amazing shape and colours of the cliffs is the Amoudi Bay.

-Skaros Rock: More intriguing geological formations can be found when one heads to the outskirts of the town of Imerovigli. Here they will encounter the Skaros Rock which presents a formidable challenge to those looking to surmount it. Successful climbers will however enjoy breathtaking views out into the Aegean Sea.

-Ancient ruins: Plenty of history is found within the boundaries of Santorini and holidaymakers staying in Megalochori holiday homes will be keen to tour the ruins found in Kamari. This collection of centuries-old pillars and walls dates back to the 11th century BC. Visitors will certainly feel a part of Santorini’s eventful past as they amble through this site. They will also be treated to magnificent panoramas which will more than justify the arduous walk to get up the ruins.

-Museums: To complete the history lesson visitors will want to pass by the Museum of Prehistoric Thera. Awaiting them here are findings from various excavations at the Akrotiri that will give tourists a good idea of how life was in the Neolithic times. Among the items on display are beautiful coloured frescoes. A visit to the Akrotiri site is essential to piecing together life in ancient Santorini. The ruins here have been wonderfully preserved by volcanic ash.

-Beaches: History aside, tourists booked into Megalochori holiday villas will be able to enjoy the bountiful Santorini sunshine from places such as the Red Beach. This is one of Santorini’s most popular beaches and is distinguished by the red cliffs that surround it. The place has quite a bit of rock and takes a bit of a hike to get to but is well worth the trouble.

Travel to Megalochori

Our stay in mansion Kyani was truly an experience I would wholeheartedly recommend to any demanding traveler. The day we arrived was very hot and our trip a little tiring but we were fully rewarded when we took a refreshing dip in the swimming pool and relaxed with a chilled bottle of wine (courtesy of management) in the cool courtyard. The rest of our stay fully lived up to our expectations.

The house is beautiful inside and out and had everything we needed. We especially liked sunbathing on the roof top and cooling off in the plunge pool. The village itself is traditional and peaceful but is a good base for exploring the rest of the island. Mark and Christine were very welcoming and gave us good tips on where to go and arranged a boat trip for us. We visited a lot of the restaurants in the welcome pack and enjoyed them all. We hope to return one day! Chris and Amy

From arriving late at night being collected by Mark and driven to Eirini and it's beautifully lit terrace, then waking the following day to open the front door to the most spectacular views of Megalochori village and the sea! The villa has the most fabulous WOW factor from the moment you open the gates. It has been designed sympathetically to Grecian style and is a tribute to the village. We spent a lot of time relaxing in & around the fantastic secluded pool through the day and had several relaxing barbaques at night with a fantastic back drop of the village all lit up. Everything we could have wished for or needed was thought of and provided from our welcome pack of bread, wine & much more to get us on our way, to all our kitchen utensils etc., to cook/BBQ if we didn't want to dine out. The village and surrounding area have some fantastic restaurants & bars. Christine very kindly recommend several. There is loads to see and do in Santorini or you can just chill in one of the village restaurants. We will definitely be returning again soon. Thank you Christine & Mark for your lovely warm hospitality, we'll see you again.
