Our best villa stay so far 5 star service

  • 5 of 5

I just cannot put into words how beautiful this villa/the village and this island is. The care and thought that the owners have put into this cave house is exceptional. All I can say it's one of the best holidays we have had and cannot wait to return. You will not be disappointed if you book a holiday here it will exceed all expectations. A massive thank you to mark and Christine for your 5star care and service.

Amazing Alba Lily

  • 5 of 5

This is a truly Wonderful villa in a beautiful setting and Marc and Christine are the perfect hosts, they are extremely kind and helpful, nothing was too much trouble in helping to make our stay so memorable. Alba Lily was simply stunning and I couldn't have chosen a better place to celebrate my 50th birthday. The villa itself is equipped to the highest standards and is equally perfect for two to four people with separate bedroom and sitting areas etc. It has to be seen to appreciate fully,indoors is excellent with so much space and the outdoor seating area with plunge pool and stairs leading to an amazing seating & sunbathing area ! The village of Megalochori is lovely and traditional, it has plenty of excellent restaurants nearby and we liked Mousiko Kouti, Fegerra and the Athermi ,which are all within a short walk. The bakery was excellent also,providing hot food to take away,nice bread and cakes etc.The bus service is good for getting around easily however,we did hire a car for a day which Marc & Christine organised for us. A car makes it easier but it's not essential at all.We loved the island of Santorini, particularly Perissa (great reccommdations from Marc & Christine for lunch) and we also loved the open air cinema at Kamari.Fira and Oia have to be seen also, but Megalochori was my favourite area, as it is a haven and is so laid back . Be sure to visit Megalochori's various winery's, we managed to get to Gavalas, Santo wines for my 50th ! (thanks to Marc for the lift) and Ventesanos.Santorini wine is excellent and a bit different in taste to most other wines due to the volcanic soil etc and the wine tastings were a great experience, with some amazing views as well !

All in all, a wonderful holiday,on a great island ,in the perfect villa and with the best hosts! So thanks so much Marc & Christine and we would strongly recommend Alba Lily and hope to return !

Cleanliness, a welcoming bottle of wine and food, beautiful deck, cool plunge pool and a quaint quiet village to explore. With all the choices available, we were so glad we chose this property.

beautifully maintained and clean cave house, ideal for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 days early May - and if anything the property was even better than the excellent photos and comments which led us to book in the first instance. Christine and Mark were very helpful while not intrusive, including transporting to and from the airport which was particularly good for us as we didn't intend to hire a car. They were also very helpful in recommending things to do once they knew what we were interested in. We spent most of our time around the villa, and mooching around Megalochori, enjoying the food in the various restaurants, and the beer and house wine. The €6 0.5L carafes at Marmita were surprisingly good. The wine tasting at the local winery (right in the centre of Megalachori) was also interesting with a good history lesson and plenty of differing wines to taste (and buy). Anyway, we had a great time, perfect & memorable honeymoon, and I can't recommend Alba Lily highly enough.

Out of this world!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous nine day stay at Alba Lily's.

We first had a warm welcome by Mark who picked us up at the airport and kindly brought us to the house, where we met our gracious host, Christine. What can we say about Mark and Christine? They are so kind, generous, and so dedicated to serving the people. And what can we say about that gorgeous Village House Alba Lily where you can enjoy an atmosphere of peace and quiet.

My wife and I have nearly travelled all over the world but we've never been enchanted by a lovely house like Alba Lily. You have everything you need there. The jacuzzi is so pleasant and refreshing. On the roof there's a nice terrasse where you can relax and take some sun. Just down the street there are some good restaurants and little shops that open till late in the evening. The bus system is very convenient, near the house, and the fare is cheap, 1.80 Eur.

Overall, it's been for us one the nicest if not the nicest we ever had.

A most memorable vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

The Abalily was everything I could hope for during my three week vacation. The pool was always cleaned and was a great relaxing area after a long hot day. The house is fully loaded with everything you would need. There was a nice basket full of tasty fruit, wine and cheese upon our arrival. Christine and Mark provide us with helpful information about the village and other areas to visit. The bakery has great coffee, pastries, sandwiches to get your day started or to end your evening. Not to mention, the donuts are delicious. The bus stop is located right next to the bakery making it easy to get around the island. Or Walk around the village and you'll find great shops, restaurants, wine tasting and and so much more. If need anything Christine and Mark are there to assist you. I'm very thankful to have met them.

Megalochori is one of the most peaceful and traditional villages on the island of Santorini. The property is a short walk to the village square where there are three excellent restaurants offering Greek and international food. You can't fail to notice the large number of wine tasting places here and indeed this village is at the heart of the island's wine making industry. Many of the bigger facilities, like Boutari, are on the village's outskirts among the vineyards.
