Literally translated into "Big Village", which is a mere euphemism, this island settlement is known to have been populated since the middle of the 17th century. Host to the mansions of some of the most powerful families who inhabited the island, it is also famous for its sweet wine "Vinsanto", which is still exported all over the world. The architecture that resulted from the riches of its inhabitants truly stands out from every vantage point of the village.
Megalochori has withstood the gradual erosion of village life through rural depopulation as some of the island’s largest vineyards situated here and thus continue to provide a livelihood to its inhabitants. Its lively community of permanent residents adds local flavour and charm to the village’s narrow roads which in turn beg to be explored.

Situated 9.5 kilometers from Fira, Megalochori is within easy reach of Akrotiri and many other beaches on the island. Megalochori presents a multitude of interesting faces, many of whom, you may well get to know during your stay.
