Only 6 km from the busy town of Fira, it is another world and an ideal holiday base for those who want to relax and enjoy the many attractions of Santorini from a different perspective.
Megalochori was inhabited by many feudal landlords of the island at the past. These merchants and landlords became wealthy exporting the unique Vinsanto wine, which the island still produces.

Its traffic-free cobblestone streets, its venetian bell towers and its lovely square with the chic restaurants make Megalochori a premier destination for the concerning visitor of Santorini..
The location of the village is perfect, as the most significant touristic attractions and the best beaches of the island are only minutes’ drive away..
Megalochori has also a lovely unspoiled caldera part with no buildings, perfect for hiking with magnificent vistas of the famous volcano and sunset..
The traditional village of Megalochori is not widely known as it is not touristic and remains one of the hidden treasures of Santorini for those who prefer to relax and enjoy an original Greek experience, away from the tourist masses..
