Honeymoon at Alba Lily

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 nights staying here for our honeymoon, and absolutely loved it. 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!

Stunning House & Location!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have wished for a better holiday! Alba Lily is just gorgeous, comfortable, well equipped & beautifully thought out. We loved staying in a traditional style property. The owners, Christine & Mark live a stones throw away and were available to answer any questions we had. We felt really welcome throughout our stay.

Megalohori is a lovely village with a good choice of restaurants, in an ideal location to explore the island. We hope to visit Santorini again, Alba Lily will definitely be top on my list of places to stay.

Wonderful! Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in an idyllic setting. Good restaurants within strolling distance, also a superb bakery/ice cream shop. Christine & Mark couldn't have been more helpful. Local buses good & cheap. And the Gavalas winery...what more can we say! Except it was all bathed in glorious sunshine!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Alba Lily for 5 days following our wedding in Santorini.

We absolutely loved it - perfect size for the 2 of us. (We didn't use the other half of the house with the 2 single beds).

We had planned to stay in and cook most nights but this ended up not being the case, however the kitchen is amazing, its fully equipped and has everything you need. We did have some friends round for lunch one afternoon and it was great to have the space & equipment to host a lunch party.

The outside of the property is fab - mark comes round to clean the pool every few days and its very clean. The seating area is perfect for lunch in the sun. Then up on the roof terrace there is a seated area with 2 sunbeds, very relaxing!

The bedroom we stayed in was very spacious, with a wardrobe, chest of drawers & make up table & mirror - perfect for getting ready. There was also a safe in the second wardrobe.

Bathroom was lovely - fresh & clean with a huge shower!

We would defiantly sta here again if we come back to Santorini and will look out for Marks new properties.

Relaxing week in perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We , including our 2 kids (11,8) had an amazing, relaxing time in this beautifully restored , fully equipped , quiet cave house. Away from the tourist craziness of Fira but still in a little village with few restaurants and shops and wonderful, helpful owners nearby we had a perfect vacation, went to beaches every day, awesome catamaran sunset trips and relaxing nights on the deck ! Would love to come again

We had a fabulous week staying at Alba Lily. The owners Christine and Mark provided the transfers to and from the airport which was a lovely touch and extremely helpful.

When we arrived they had left a welcome pack for us of food, wine and beer which was a lovely surprise and very thoughtful.

The accommodation is beautiful, very well designed, impeccably clean and has everything that you could need. The decor and furnishings are very tasteful and add to the aesthetic pleasure of the property. There are many power points throughout the property and outside, including on the roof terrace which was very useful. The internet works fine in the main area of the property and just outside of the entrance.

Christine and Mark were very helpful being available for any questions or advice that we required.

We tried most if not all of the restaurants in the village and all were good, Raki had most of our custom, we enjoyed the food and the relaxed atmosphere there.

There are a few small local mini markets in the village but the bakery, a couple of hundred meters from the property has most essential food items that you could need.

The bus stop is next to the bakery and from here you can get to pretty much anywhere on the island, the buses are modern coach type and are air conditioned. Prices are reasonable at approx 3-4 euros to Thira or Perissa, a Taxi to Thira is approx 15 Euros from the bakery.

We had a wonderful time and wished that we had booked for longer, we recommend Alba Lily to anyone thinking of visiting Santorini.

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.
