Overview

Santorini House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom; 2 bathroom property to sleep 4, near to village square

This picturesque walled property is entered from a secluded street through a door leading to a small courtyard at the bottom of some steps. Just inside this door there is an out-building with a shower/toilet and cave double bedroom. From the courtyard there is an entrance to the main house via the fully fitted kitchen and another directly into the living room

The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge; freezer; cooker; sink and units and has all the cutlery and crockery needed for living. The living room has two sofas, one of which turns into a bed; dining table and 4 chairs; coffee table; armchairs; satellite TV and air conditioning. At the far end there is a door leading into an air conditioned double bedroom with en-suite walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin.

From the courtyard there are steps leading to the terrace, with a gazebo covered in bougainvillea, bench seats and table and 4 chairs. The remainder of the terrace has a washing rotary drier and the solar panel system

Megalachori is a sleepy traditional village and this property is ideally situated, overlooking the small main street leading to the village square. The local bakery is only a few minutes walk, as in the mini market and the main road which reaches the beaches of Perissa and Perivilos in one direction, or the main towns of Pyrgos and Fira in the other direction. There is a regular (or irregular) bus service to these locations, which can be boarded at the bakery. This is also the location where tour buses will collect you if you go on the Volcano, Hot Springs or Sunset tours.

If you choose to try a Diving Introduction day, or even a full PADDI diving course, this is also where you will be collected from.

You could not be better located for reaching all parts of this beautiful island, than Megalachori and this property keeps you near to everything, yet tucked away for relaxation in peace and quiet if that is what you prefer.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

Mike was a excellent host, the place was great and the location perfect. Mike had us picked up at the port and gave us all the information we needed on places to see in Santorini. We really enjoyed the house and felt that we got the most out of one week on Santorini. Many thanks also to Gabriella and Dimitri for their support. It was a really nice experience getting to know everyone we felt like locals. Superb holiday. Thanks!

lovely holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was lovely to stay in a traditional santorini village. Ate several times in the viiage restaurants which were within easy walking distance. The villa was well looked after. We loved the courtyard and roof terrace. Also the cave bedroom and bathroom made it a bit different and special. We had a very enjoyable stay.

Reizend

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 7 Tage in Megalochori und es hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Das Haus war sehr gur augestattet, man hatte alles was man braucht.Megalochori liegt zentral auf der Insel und ist ein ruhiges Dorf für Leute die die Ruhe lieben. Ein großes Dankeschön an Gabriella und Dimitri, die uns mit Tipps und Ratschlägen versorgt haben, insbesondere bei unserem kleinen Mißgeschick mit dem Scooter.Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Wonderful place !

  • 5 of 5

The house is simply beautiful and charming ! The village is quiet, far from the touristic hassle, and very pittoresque. The house is fully equipped with all that we need and the owner is very helpful and thinks about everything. It was clean, the service was as expected and we were given a lot of information about the surroundings and the island. I can only recommend this place for those who want a real and genuine experience of life in Santorini.

Fantastically Relaxing and Hassle Free Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 7 days and had a wonderful time. Michael and June were attentive hosts and organised everything very thoughtfully. We were picked up from the airport, and met Michael near the house in Megalachori. The fridge had a bottle of excellent wine in it and there were essentials like bread, coffee, and milk in the kitchen. Michael organised the hiring of a car for us and it was delivered to the village. Sky TV and wifi were available and there was a stock of DVDs to watch. We had been to Santorini before and Megalochori is our favourite village. It is full of peaceful medieval charm. The two restaurants in the village are superb, and the main attractions of the island are all easily accessible from the here. The house is modernised to a high standard and has a wonderful sun terrace where you can unwind with a glass of wine and a meal. There is a really good quality baker and a mini market a couple of minutes away. If you are going to Santorini this is definitely the place to stay!

Situated in the traditional village of Megalachori (pop 350), near the ferry port of Athinios, this property is a few minutes walk from the main cobbled square of this beautiful and charming village. There you can enjoy two excellent restaurants and the local taverna.There is a village store and bakery nearby and the village is surrounded by vineyards, offering wine tasting. The village boasts one of the most up-market hotels on the island-'The Vadema', which has many V.I.P guests such as Danny DeVito and Angelina Jolie.Their restaurant, bar and pool facilities are available, but be warned-it can be expensive! The village well located on the island, being only 10 minutes away from most tourist spots. The beaches of Perissa and Perivilos,with excellent water and beach sports, only 7km. as is the main town of Fira, where there

are many shops, bars and tourist attractions.Santo Wines (1km) has the best view of the whole island and the most stunning sunsets viewed over a glass of wine
