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.
