Megalochori Holidays

A historic charmer in Santorini

Some destinations seem to age as beautifully and gracefully as a fine wine, and this agricultural village in the heartlands of Santorini is certainly one of them. Little Megalocori looks much as it did when it was built in the 17th century, and has a relaxed, easygoing pace and time-honoured traditions, which make it feel somehow separate from the modern world. It’s these qualities that make Megalocori holidays so special.

Take your time drinking in the atmosphere, the local crafts and the distinctive Cycladian architecture, with buildings featuring gleaming white walls and dramatic blue domes. And don’t forget to drink in the Vinsanto, too – Megalocori has a long history of winemaking, and it’s still central to the village today. Around here, it’s all about taking things slowly and enjoying the finer things in life, which is why holidays to Megalocori are sure to go to your head.
