Additional Location Information

Megalochori Lifestyle
Megalochori is a cozy village that still has genuine old world charm and an authentic village way of life. Narrow roads and footpaths, sprinkled with brilliant flowers, meander past whitewashed traditional houses and under lacey Venetian bell towers to meet at the lovely cobblestone village square. Here you can enjoy a quiet lunch at the local taverna, Raki, shaded by the vine covered pergola and listening to church bells toll. As the evening progresses, locals and visitors gather at the square for cocktails and Italian specialties at Il Gioiello, or live Greek music played by local musicians at Raki.
Formerly home to wealthy wine making families in the 17th century, Megalochori is filled with architectural treasures: renovated grandiose mansions and wine cellars, along with smaller traditional historical houses and the many churches that have served this small community over time.
Lush vineyards can be still seen in every direction beyond the village, home to three of Santorini’s most historic and prominent working wineries today. They are happy to accept visitors for tastings and tours.
Megalochori is an easy central point for exploring Santorini. It is close to the island’s most famous beaches, notably Red beach, Perivolos beach and Perissa beach. The old Venetian castle settlements at Emporio or Pyrgos are just minutes from the village. The beaches and world renowned archaeological site at Akrotiri are also just a short distance away.
After a day of exploring the beauty of Santorini, you will always be glad to return to peaceful Megalochori. Like a world removed, in Megalochori there is a quiet tranquility and a different pace: the pace of island village life.
