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

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.

The restoration of the property is incredible and as previous reviewers have stated the pictures do not do it justice. It is fully equipped with any and everything you could possibly need and Iro the manager was very friendly and available to help with any queries. The villa is incredibly spacious with a sunny or cool spot available at all times of day. The outdoor areas are particularly impressive with great views too! The pool is a good size and there is plenty of room for everyone to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. The location in Megalochori is great, away from the hustle and bustle but with the village, bakery and mini market in walking distance and access to all areas of the island just a short drive away. Our entire party are still talking about it now and we cannot wait to visit again one day.

The pool and jacuzzi were maintained daily. Both were well used by us all. The villa's terraces afford some beautiful views of the island and were a great place to relax. However the steps up are steep which may be a consideration for some. Our teenagers tended to stay on the lower level, by the pool, because the Wi-Fi was better there! The villa is in a traditional village and close to local restaurants and mini marts and shops selling some lovely local crafts. Although went on a couple of excursions, we could have easily spent the whole week in the villa and village. With that said, Santorini is amazing. It's a stunning island with some amazing history so it is worth forcing yourself out of the villa for! Our family loved our time at Villa Olivia and recommend it to others.
