• Megalochori, Santorini
  • Overview

    In the heart of vineyard country on the south western plains of Santorini, Megalohori has preserved much of its traditional appearance from the early 17th century, with traditional manor houses, ancient mansions and pirate hideaways dotting the landscape.

    Houses which had fallen into disrepair have been renovated, refurbished and restored to their former glory, making this one of the most picturesque areas of Santorini.

    Summer afternoons are spent in the delightful main square where locals, in thrall to the fickle fortunes of backgammon, enjoy a shady, fortified coffee beneath a trailing vine as the softly muted chimes of whitewashed bell towers sound on an aestival breeze.
