Just up the winding path from the village square in Megalochori lies a small complex of traditional Santorinian houses. We called it Casa Grande after its’ namesake, the largest of the five. Restored to their former glory, the homes offer an exciting alternative to conventional holiday accommodation, and the chance to experience island life in one of Santorini’s prettier lesser-known villages.
Each house is autonomous but the close proximity lends itself to both individual and group bookings. Casa Grande is two minutes’ walk from the village square and a selection of taverns and coffee places. There is a Wine Bar & Restaurant with an Art Gallery that has live Greek music of an evening. One can also find small shops and a mini market. Nearby, Gavalas Winery offers tours and wine tasting.
