Beautiful property, wonderful hosts!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at many VRBO/Homeaway/Airbnb places over the years but Christine and Mark's home was by far the best in many ways! First of all the communication prior to our stay was outstanding, not only did they pick us up from the airport (and drop us off on our last day), Christine arranged a rental car for us during our stay. Mark was waiting for us at the airport and provided us with a delightful drive and information about the island on our way to the house. Christine welcomed us to the property which they had stocked with wine, food, milk, juice, butter, bottled water and a freshly baked loaf of bread from the local bakery! The house is beautiful, well represented on the website and spotlessly clean and inviting. We so enjoyed coming back in the afternoons for a cooling plunge in the pool (which Mark discreetly cleaned once during our stay while we were exploring the island). And the village was magical, good food, great local shopping and fishermen selling their catch in the morning hours from the back of a pick up truck! I can't recommend this house and the hosts enough. I would and have recommended them to anyone interested in exploring Santorini! Thank you so much Christine and Mark for making our stay a wonderful experience!

More then we hoped for,

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The home was clean and well taken care of. The pool offered relief during the hot weather and everything we needed was available to us. Mark and Christine were tremendous hosts and were available should we had needed them ( which wasn't often as we had everything we needed). The village was the perfect setting away from the bustle of Santorini. We would definitely stay here again if we find our way back.

Delightful Cave House in Megalochori

  • 5 of 5

Alba Lily is a delightful cave house in the charming village of Megalochori. It is small and quirky, but has every modern convenience and has been beautifully decorated and furnished with taste by Christine and Mark. Outside it has a delightful courtyard with dining area and small pool, once again decorated with pot plants and tasteful wall plates. Upstairs there is a barbecue and on the roof terrace very comfortable built in sofas and a table with views over the village and surrounding countryside and a very beautiful domed church almost next door. We spent every evening watching the sunset from there - marvelous!

Megalochori itself is off the main tourist route but has a small mini market and about six or seven restaurants within walking distance. It is a very traditional village, and if you are lucky, you may get involved in one of their festivals with a bonfire in the street and Greek dancing etc.This has occurred twice for us when visiting in mid June. There is a very good bakery on the outskirts of the village that sells all types of breads and irresistible pastries, plus delicious homemade ice cream, takeaway dinners and grocery items etc. It is open all day every day until midnight and is just a five minute walk from Alba Lily. The bus stop to Fira is right outside the bakery and another mini market is close by.

These are some of the highlights, but the best bit is that you get Mark and Christine as well! They are helpful and generous, and the fact that they live next door, means that if you do have a problem they are quickly on hand to deal with it.

We highly recommend Alba Lily for a cave house experience in a very traditional Greek village, and you do not need to hire a car.

Fantastic cave house in quiet traditional village, fabulous holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Christine were perfect hosts, from wine beer and food in fridge when we arrived to collecting us and taking us back to the aiirport and arranging hire car and boat trip. Really appreciated all those little touches. House is very well equipped - although we only used the fridge to keep our drinks cool!! Santorini is a beautiful island and megalorchori a tranquil

Oasis to return to each day, will definitely recommend to friends and family. The Dunnes July 2017

What a gem - cannot rate this highly enough

  • 5 of 5

Firstly Mark thank you for being the perfect host and Christine although we did not meet maybe next time - we would love to revisit. The accommodation is in a perfect location which gave us the opportunity to explore places such as Oia and Thira but we were always pleased to return to Albalily which is fully loaded with charm and every amenity you could ask for. Its location offers the visitor the opportunity to feel at home in a beautiful traditional Greek village. Santorini may be small but has so much to see and do - beaches, wineries, Island hopping day trips on traditional boats, stunning sunsets, shopping and more. Great Holiday - Great Host - Great accommodation - Great Island PERFECT!!

Amazing Alba Lily

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly Wonderful villa in a beautiful setting and Marc and Christine are the perfect hosts, they are extremely kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble in helping to make our stay so memorable. Alba Lily was simply stunning and I couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate my 50th birthday. The villa itself is equipped to the highest standards and is equally perfect for two to four people with separate bedroom and sitting areas etc. It has to be seen to appreciate fully,indoors is excellent with so much space and the outdoor seating area with plunge pool and stairs leading to an amazing seating & sunbathing area ! The village of Megalochori is lovely and traditional, it has plenty of excellent restaurants nearby and we liked Mousiko Kouti, Fegerra and the Athermi ,which are all within a short walk. The bakery was excellent also,providing hot food to take away,nice bread and cakes etc.The bus service is good for getting around easily however,we did hire a car for a day which Marc & Christine organised for us. A car makes it easier but it's not essential at all.We loved the island of Santorini, particularly Perissa (great reccommdations from Marc & Christine for lunch) and we also loved the open air cinema at Kamari.Fira and Oia have to be seen also, but Megalochori was my favourite area, as it is a haven and is so laid back . Be sure to visit Megalochori's various winery's, we managed to get to Gavalas, Santo wines for my 50th ! (thanks to Marc for the lift) and Ventesanos.Santorini wine is excellent and a bit different in taste to most other wines due to the volcanic soil etc and the wine tastings were a great experience, with some amazing views as well !

All in all, a wonderful holiday,on a great island ,in the perfect villa and with the best hosts! So thanks so much Marc & Christine and we would strongly recommend Alba Lily and hope to return !

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.
