Megalochori Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1.0 Bathrooms, 6 Sleeps

Tucked away in a secluded alcove of Megalochori, within a short stroll from the village square, Villa Io is an ideal hideaway providing peace and privacy. Built into the volcanic rock, the villa once served as the village school to the local children. Today the interior is postcard-perfect, white with beautiful arched interiors. The outdoor area is private and the hand-laid cobbled courtyard complemented by a glistening pool, provides the perfect outdoor space for lazing around on hot summer days. This traditional villa ensures tranquility and a taste of traditional village life. Villa Io is ideal for families looking to experience the true island lifestyle of days gone by without compromising on comfort or convenience.

Out in the sunshine you can cool down in the swimming pool, enjoy some al fresco dining or just lounge around with a good book and take it easy. The property comes with a 24 hour concierge and daily maid service. In terms of amenities, you can kick back and watch satellite TV or a DVD after youve enjoyed another super day in sunny Santorini.

The layout of the villa takes the form of traditional Santorini houses. As the village of Megalochori is surrounded by vineyards, the villa continues this theme with unusual light fittings fashioned out of the basket-like vines. The farm-style kitchen is large and fully equipped with an antique dining table and beautifully crafted chairs and modern appliances. Cutlery and crockery are housed in an ornate antique dresser, adding an old-world charm to the kitchen. Through an arched passageway, leading from the kitchen, you will find the comfortable living room with doors leading out to the courtyard and pool.

Villa Io accommodates up to six guests and children are welcome. The two main bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, whilethere is a further sleeping area in the loft with two single beds, ideally suited for children over six years old.

Theres a lot to see and do away from the villa during your vacation. You can enjoy a day out at the beach, people-watch in Megalochori village, charter your own boat for the day and take to the ocean (extra costs apply and advance notice may be required) or drive into nearby Fira and Oia and sample a livelier pace of life. Villa Io is a welcoming place to return to each evening.

a dream holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Discovering the island of Santorini was a great experience! Thanks to Villa Io we were relaxed, we could swim in our own private swimming pool and plan breakfast and lunch. The location in Megalochori was excellent; we felt immediately home in the village. We were disappointed by the hotels in Fira and Oia, therefore we were very happy to live in the village and be able to travel when and were we were inspired. The day trip with the catamaran was extra relaxing and fun.

Relaxing home in great, less touristy location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this home. It was very beautiful and clean. My daughters loved the pool. It was nice to be away from the congestion of Oia and Fira. But, it was easy to get to them by car.
