This is a small villiage that is great to explore. There are a few art studios and leather shops around different to those seen in commercialized Oia and Fira. Good to wander around and have a drink in the square and buy some reasonably priced...More

That is what the brown sign says and yes it is a Traditional Setting, a must is the Cave House which is truly traditional, there are Free Car Parks at each end of the village please use as there is no parking within the village

We had rented a four wheeler to drive around the island and made our way here one afternoon. Small streets with great places to take some photos and take in the local architecture. If in the area would certainly recommend a visit

Six of us stayed in Megalochori, and none of us regretted the choice of location. Quaint town with plenty of shops, restaurants, and wineries. Definitely more relaxing than staying in Fira or Oia (and less expensive), and whether using taxis or the bus (surprisingly efficient...More
