Property Description

Villa Kyani has a fabulous location in the peaceful village of Megalochori on a quiet, winding street, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Fira. The villa’s envious hilltop location boasts impressive views overlooking the village, surrounding vineyards and across the sparkling Aegean Sea. It is just a short stroll away from the picturesque central village square with its pretty churches and bell towers. A handy selection of amenities such as restaurants, shops and a great local market, where guests can stock up on snacks and wine, can all be found in Megalochori. A wider range of amenities and exciting nightlife can be found in Fira, which is just a 15-minute car journey away.

The villa can sleep up to six guests across three beautiful bedrooms. The accommodation is set over two levels; large wooden entrance gates conceal a private cobblestone paved courtyard oasis that boasts a private swimming pool. Double doors lead from the serene courtyard to the kitchenette and magnificent Master bedroom with its domed ceiling; the bedroom also boasts an ensuite bathroom. In the courtyard, separate doors and a staircase lead you into the second spacious double bedroom and bathroom. Upstairs, on the first floor, guests can enjoy the views from the comfort of the large private terrace, the perfect spot for alfresco dining, while enjoying the village views at sunset. On this level is a living room with a kitchenette and an indoor dining room and bathroom.

Outside, the courtyard is the perfect place to spend a lazy day relaxing by the pool with a good book. There are dining facilities and a handy barbecue, perfect for cooking up a storm with treats purchased at the local market.

What we love…

  • Excellent location in the traditional village of Megalochori, in walking distance of shops, restaurants and the central village square
  • This hidden gem is perfect for families looking for a relaxing escape and makes a great base for exploring the island
  • The unique layout makes Villa Kyani ideal for three couples holidaying together who wish to retain an element of privacy from the rest of the group
  • Lots of good local wineries so get the hosts to book you a wine tasting.
  • It’s a great location to explore the island, so do book car hire, at least for some of your stay

What you should know…

  • Megalochori has all the amenities you would need for a comfortable stay without the hustle & bustle of Fira or Oia, however, the village is not best known for its nightlife
  • The house only has a plunge pool, so if you like to swim lengths probably not for you, great for cooling off though.

Megalochori is one of the most picturesque villages on the beautiful island of Santorini, thanks partly to how it has managed to maintain its traditional architecture. Opinions differ on the origin of the name – some say that it came from the agricultural fields that the villagers kept, and others argue that the name reflects the personality of the place. Most of the houses have been renovated, but Megalochori has managed to retain many of its traditional values – including many picturesque local churches and the many vineyards that produce fine local wines. The nearby beaches are superb, and whatever you do, try some of the traditionally produced sun-dried tomatoes.

The surrounding area has an abundance of restaurants, tavernas, cafes, bakers, mini-markets, tourist shops and wineries – they are all easy to find, and you’ll find the locals incredibly friendly and welcoming. Despite boasting all necessary amenities, Megalochori leaves visitors feeling like a million miles away from any hustle & bustle, however, the busy towns of Fira and Oia are still only a short car journey away!

How to reach Santorini island

There are two ways to reach Santorini Island: either by flight or by ferry.

By plane: The airport of Santorini (JTR) is located in the region of Kamari that is 8 km far from Thira. Santorini island is one of the most popular Greek destinations, that is why many tourists arrive on the island with direct ferries from their country. Domestic flights are available too.

By ferry: The main port of Santorini is called Athinios (JTR) and is located 9 km outside of Thira. The trip from Piraeus can last from 5 hours (if you take a speed ferry) to 9 hours (if you prefer the conventional ferry). One more thing that you should keep in mind is that Santorini is connected through various routes to the most Cyclades islands. You can easily book your ferry tickets using the link below or the booking engine.


Best Suited For: All Ages

With lots of scenic walking and bike trails, plenty of beautiful calm swimming beaches and exciting historic sites, Santorini is the perfect holiday destination for families, however good to bear in mind the topography isn’t particularly suitable for kids. Most of the beautiful towns are stacked on hilltops, which means there are narrow pathways and steep steps everywhere you go, not great for pushchairs or prams.

Kids enjoy exploring the two towns on the island; Pyrgos is built on a hill with an old castle on top and fantastic views. Emporio is flatter and smaller, but both offer plenty of opportunities to get happily lost. The cobbled streets of Oia and Fira may also be of interest. Ice cream, crepes, and a few stories about exploding volcanoes will add to the experience.

There is the Kamari open air cinema. The movies aren’t always kid-friendly, so check the schedule in advance, but they’re usually popular movies in English (with Greek subtitles).
