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.

Weather in Megalochori

Those who plan to spend their summer holidays in Megalochori holiday homes will be in for temperatures in the thirties. At this time of year conditions are hot and dry with rainfall averages mostly below 20mm. Autumn remains relatively warm with temperature averages still above 20°C in October. Winters are far from chilly and January is the coolest month with an average of 10°C.

Travel to Megalochori

Visitors destined for holiday rentals in Megalochori will want to try and book a flight to the Santorini or Thira National Airport. Try because the flights are not that easy to come by to this airport. Most airliners only operate seasonal flights there during summer and demand at this time for tickets is high. Those arriving at this airport can take a taxi to the village of Megalochori but may feel exploited paying close to €20 for a 10 minute ride.

SPECTACULAR! We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

5 of 5
The Eirini Villa was an amazing place to stay during our vacation in Santorini! The location is central on the island, within walking distance to wonderful restaurants and beaches, and located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood. A very magical village. More importantly, the house was super clean, with all the modern comforts: A/C, dishwasher, wifi, cave pool, and tv. Christine and Mark were very welcoming and helped us with anything we needed, including bookings for tours. The fridge was stocked with meats, bread, eggs, fresh fruit and water and even a complimentary bottle of Santorini's famous white wine upon arrival! This is the best place to stay on the island, and recoomend a rental car. Mark and Christine helped us with that as well as transporting us to and from the airport upon arrival and departure. Mark renovated this beauty and every detail is wonderful. Christine added her creative touch by decorating the villa tasefully.The cave pool was the best part of the villa, and so nice at night! The villa is perfect for hosting cookouts with friends. I can't say enough things about our stay! We highly recommend this home and we can't wait to return! Christine and Mark will take care of you!

Волшебный отпуск в чудесном месте

5 of 5
Мы давно хотели побывать на волшебном острове Санторини и тщательно выбирали место, где остановиться. С одной стороны, хотелось уединения и романтики, почувствовать особую атмосферу острова, но при этом (не смотря не его популярность) не оказаться в толпе туристов. А с другой стороны, конечно, хотелось получить высокий комфорт и качественную инфраструктуру. Поэтому выбор пал не на отель в крупных городах (Ия или Фира), а на виллу в деревушке Мегалохори. И мы ни разу не пожалели! Вилла просто потрясающе красивая, полностью соответствует фото. И даже лучше :) На вилле есть все необходимое, а вокруг отличные рестораны, винодельня, пекарня - словом все для отличного отдыха! Спасибо Элефтерии!
