Property description

This picturesque walled property is entered from a secluded street through a door leading to a small courtyard at the bottom of some steps. Just inside this door there is an out-building with a shower/toilet and cave double bedroom. From the courtyard there is an entrance to the main house via the fully fitted kitchen and another directly into the living room
The kitchen is fully equipped with fridge; freezer; cooker; sink and units and has all the cutlery and crockery needed for living. The living room has two sofas, one of which turns into a bed; dining table and 4 chairs; coffee table; armchairs; satellite TV and air conditioning. At the far end there is a door leading into an air conditioned double bedroom with en-suite walk-in shower, toilet and wash basin.
From the courtyard there are steps leading to the terrace, with a gazebo covered in bougainvillea, bench seats and table and 4 chairs. The remainder of the terrace has a washing rotary drier and the solar panel system

Megalachori is a sleepy traditional village and this property is ideally situated, overlooking the small main street leading to the village square. The local bakery is only a few minutes walk, as in the mini market and the main road which reaches the beaches of Perissa and Perivilos in one direction, or the main towns of Pyrgos and Fira in the other direction. There is a regular (or irregular) bus service to these locations, which can be boarded at the bakery. This is also the location where tour buses will collect you if you go on the Volcano, Hot Springs or Sunset tours.
If you choose to try a Diving Introduction day, or even a full PADDI diving course, this is also where you will be collected from.
You could not be better located for reaching all parts of this beautiful island, than Megalachori and this property keeps you near to everything, yet tucked away for relaxation in peace and quiet if that is what you prefer.

Situated in the traditional village of Megalachori (pop 350), near the ferry port of Athinios, this property is a few minutes walk from the main cobbled square of this beautiful and charming village. There you can enjoy two excellent restaurants and the local taverna.There is a village store and bakery nearby and the village is surrounded by vineyards, offering wine tasting. The village boasts one of the most up-market hotels on the island-'The Vadema', which has many V.I.P guests such as Danny DeVito and Angelina Jolie.Their restaurant, bar and pool facilities are available, but be warned-it can be expensive! The village well located on the island, being only 10 minutes away from most tourist spots. The beaches of Perissa and Perivilos,with excellent water and beach sports, only 7km. as is the main town of Fira, where there

are many shops, bars and tourist attractions.Santo Wines (1km) has the best view of the whole island and the most stunning sunsets viewed over a glass of wine
