Fabulously comfortable and beautifull house in ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

The owners are extremely generous and on hand to assist with queries. A welcome pack of fresh food, wine, and beer is provided- which was v much appreciated as we arrived at 9pm

The house is a cave so naturally cool , but the a/c was available if required ( assuring us of a good night's sleep)

The house is beautifully decorated and scrupulously clean.

Santorini can be v busy in the larger towns and we appreciated the peace and quiet of the village.

Fab house- fab weather and lovely owners

We stay in rentals quite often - and this probably the best yet

A wonderful week in Santorini

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed at the lovely Alba Lily cave house for a week in July, and we not disappointed. I had spent a long time choosing the right place to stay, as having been to other places in Greece before, I knew I didn't want to stay in the main tourist towns. We therefore went for Alba Lily, being in a smaller, more traditional village. The property was immaculate, and had been restored brilliantly. We thought the decor was really nice, and loved that it had a plunge pool- much needed to cool down in. We also used the barbecue on a couple of evenings, and sat on the roof terrace to watch the sunset whilst we had our dinner.

Christine and Mark were very accommodating, firstly by picking us up from the airport (which was very much appreciated) but also for providing some food and wine/beer to keep us going. They even helped us with getting to the nearest supermarket to pick up some meat, salad etc.

Another important factor for us, was that we could get to local restaurants and basic shops on foot, as we didn't want to rent a car/quad bike. There are several restaurants in Megalochori, and we tried three of them. They were all very enjoyable, but Feggera was our favourite- really tasty food. There is also a bakery about 3 minutes walk away from the property.

We got the bus around the island, and managed to visit most places. The buses were easy, you just need to be brave when standing at the bus stop as it's not always easy to see where they are going, and they do tend to whizz past if you're not quick enough! Once on-board though, you buy your ticket and they are all air conditioned. Anywhere on the island was 1.80 Euro, so pretty cheap.

All in all, we had a wonderful week staying at Alba Lily, and would recommend highly.

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.

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.
