What's Megalochori like

Megalochori is another traditional village set on the hillside in the centre of vineyards south of Fira on the main island of Santorini.

It has a central square with restaurants and tavernas. Cobbled streets winding off from the square lead to houses with high walls and hidden courtyards. It's a charming village that you'll love exploring.

There's a healthy choice of hotels, mainly villas and suite style places rather than huge hotel complexes although there are a couple of those. If you're looking for a hotel with a view then it's a little more tricky but there are a few places out by the caldera side of the island with spectacular scenery.

There's not a massive choice of restaurants, there's a few in the centre of town and a few more dotted about around the village but nowhere near the amount there are in Fira, Oia, Perissa or Kamari.

Megalochori is a great place to stay if you want to get away from the crowds of the main resorts and enjoy the more traditional style break.

Megalochori nightlife

Nightlife in Megalochori is almost non existent. You can obviously enjoy a nice meal and a few drinks in the restaurants but anything more exciting than that will require a trip to one of the more popular towns or villages.

What to do around Megalochori

Megalochori has a number of winery's where you can join a wine tasting tour and get to know some of the delicious local wines. There's also 2 horse riding schools so if you want to ride round the village or along one of the nearby beaches then take a look at either school to see what they can offer while you're there.

Also nearby is the village of Pyrgos which is where you'll find the highest point on the island and therefore some amazing panoramic views out over much of Santorini.
