Villa Sophia LocationMegalochori is one of the most picturesque villages on the beautiful island of Santorini, thanks in part to the way 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, others argue that the name reflects the personality of the place. Even though most of the houses have been renovated, 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, make sure to 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 - are all easy to find and you'll find the locals incredibly friendly and welcoming. Despite boasting all necessary amenities, Megalochori leaves visitors feeling a million miles away from any hustle & bustle, however, the busy towns of Fira and Oia are still only a short car journey away!
