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.

Wonderful vacations!

5 of 5
We stayed at the Villa Ivi for a full week in early September. In addition to my husband & I, we had our 2 kids (8 & 4). This is an absolutely gorgeous villa in a picturesque little village Megalochori on the breathtakingly beautiful island of Santorini. The villa is literally carved into the earth -cave house- and so traditionally unique, yet very well equipped with modern amenities. There are 2 bedrooms (the master bedroom especialy is very spacious and perfect in every little detail), 2 bathrooms, 1 kitchenette with everything you need, a lovely little jacuzzi and plenty of outdoor space to lounge, eat meals in or simply enjoy the fresh air. Housekeeping services are included. In addition, the concierge, a charming lady called Ester, can arrange for a variety of additional services like massages in the villa, restaurant reservations and boat cruises from the nearby ports. I cannot say enough nice things about Ester the concierge! We arrived much earlier than the check-in time, but she went out of her way to get the villa ready for us quickly after the previous occupants had checked out, understanding that we had little kids with us. She was always available, very responsive and incredibly helpful. She reconfirmed dinner reservations and even snagged us a private boat cruise at the last minute at a good price. The location is really what makes this villa worth it. Megalochori is a quiet little village far from the hustle and bustle of bigger towns like Oia & Fira, but much closer to the beautiful beaches on the south side of the island. Although it is not on the caldera, you don't miss it as you are never too far from it. The peace and quiet of the location is interrupted only by church bells from the many beautiful churches in the village and the sound of people laughing and talking & music playing at the many little restaurants in the village square. By the end of our week, we had got to know the locals a bit & it felt like home! If you are looking for nightlife and crowds, this is not the place for you but if you want to taste a slice of rural life in Santorini, and experience something that takes you back a few hundred years, book this place now! It also helps that one of the more popular wineries in Santorini (Gavalas winery) is literally 20 steps away from the villa! :-)

Amazing place to stay !

5 of 5
We had an amazing time in Santorini and especially at the Mansion Kyani. The space was perfect for the 6 of us and absolutely beautiful! It was great that it was away from the busier areas but always just a short car ride away . Takis and Jackie were great to correspond with , they were always quick to reply and made themselves available if needed. We had an overall great experience!
