Megalochori in Santorini

Megalochori is one of the most peaceful villages in Santorini. The village is located about one kilometre south of the turnoff to the big port of Athinios, along the road to Emborio and Perissa. Most people drive past without noticing Megalochori, though the village is well signposted with Traditional village from several directions.

Despite the name, which means "large village", it is no bigger than a few minutes stroll. A narrow cobbled street that enhances the picturesque feeling runs right through the village. The village has several carefully restored merchant houses and old traditional houses, as well as a very beautiful bell tower.

On the little square lies a few tavernas and cafes. Megalochori is exemplified by silence and a few hours in one of the tavernas is like a balm for the soul. In and around the village are some of Santorini's vineyards.

ACCOMMODATION IN MEGALOCHORIO

There are more hotels in Megalochori than you might think. One reason is of course because it is a very nice village, another because it is close to the caldera and therefore some hotels stands at the cliff edge of the caldera. Since it is far to the beach, most hotels have a pool.

The standard is high, not to say luxurious, and prices are accordingly. One of the exceptions are the Hotel Star Santorini.
