MEGALOCHORI VILLAGE

Located in the Southwestern part of the island, MEGALOCHORI VILLAGE is one of the last remaining hidden gems in Santorini. Megalochori village is a settlement that dates back to the 17th century. Its perfectly preserved whitewashed houses and carefully renovated wineries (canaves), its impressive churches with their elaborate bell towers, its paved narrow alleys and abundance of picturesque corners, as well as its pretty square make it an ideal choice for an unforgettable vacation.

The village offers several cozy taverns and restaurants, all within walking distance from the property, while it only takes ten minutes walking to reach the famous caldera and enjoy its breathtaking views.

Just footsteps from Alchemy luxury villa is Gavalas winery where wine-lovers can enjoy wine-tasting. Other wineries nearby include Venetsanos winery and Boutari winery both of which offer detailed tours and wine tasting.

Located just five minute walk from Alchemy Luxury villa and housed in an extraordinary former winery dating to the turn of the century is Megalochori’s cultural center, Symposion by La Ponta, offering an immersive experience of music and mythology to visitors from around the world. www.symposionsantorini.com

The villa is a short drive from the calm Vlychada Beach and the popular Perissa Beach, as well as the island’s capital, Fira.

Not far from the villa is the recently opened Lost Atlanis Experience museum where visistors will have the chance to learn more about Atlantis through the use of the newest interactive technologies.  www.lost-atlantis.com
