Villa Cyrene


Welcome to Villa Cyrene, a stunning and beautifully preserved traditional 2-bedroom villa located in the village of Megalochori in the heart of Santorini.

Villa Cyrene is a wonderfully renovated 18th century house, with quirky and interesting interiors and furnishings with an emphasis on fun and comfort combined. This house offers the ultimate authentic Santorini experience.

There is lots to do on this picturesque island and we would highly recommend walking Skaros Rock especially at sunset – the colours are magnificent!

Megalochori is a lovely village located in the centre of Santorini, with white painted houses, beautiful churches, narrow cobble streets and a quaint and welcoming atmosphere surrounded. The area is beautifully surrounded by vineyards. It provides a perfect base from where to explore the island of Santorini.

The best beaches on the island are just a 10 minutes’ drive from Villa Cyrene. You can also check out our blog on Santorini Beaches and Boat Trips.

The village offers wonderful traditional tavernas as well as gourmet restaurants. A local bakery and supermarket are also close by. Highly recommended is a visit to the local winery (Gavalas) for wine tasting.

The beautiful well-equipped kitchen exits onto the sun-drenched courtyard, blooming with colourful bougainvillea, providing the perfect spot for alfresco dining. The bright and spacious open plan living and dining areas inside the villa are decorated with ornaments from a local pottery maker.

On the upper terrace, you will find a zero chemical hot tub with iPod dock and speakers and sun beds for perfect relaxation and sunbathing.

The Exceptional Villas Team offers a full complimentary Concierge Service whereby we can arrange car rental, VIP airport assistance, airport transfers, organise restaurant reservations, spa treatments and excursions and pre-stock the villa with groceries prior to your arrival.

Area description

Not only is Santorini one of the most beautiful islands in the world, it is also geologically and archaeologically one of the most dramatic. The island, which is also called Thira, is shaped like an enormous pair of jaws encircling a lake filled with pure blue water. This is the core of an ancient volcano, which according to legend destroyed the lost continent of Atlantis when it blew its top about 3,600 years ago, burying the ancient city of Akrotiri (now being excavated) under tons of ash and sending out tidal waves that inundated other landmasses.

The island's two towns, Fira and Ia, are perched on the cliff tops of the highest part of the island. Ferries arrive and depart in the harbour below, and visitors walk or ride donkeys up the steep winding path to the towns. The towns are equipped with hotels, good restaurants, bars and plenty of nightlife to keep visitors happy while you relax between visiting the archaeological remains of ancient Thera, dating back to the 9th century BC, on the east side of the island.

Other attractions include the excavations at Akrotiri, an archaeological museum and an 18th-century monastery. Santorini has two swimming beaches, Perissa and Kamari, both characterised by their volcanic black sand.

Great Villa!
Great Villa!

Brought my Mom away for a few days last September and chose this villa to be away from the crowds at Oia and Fira. It was a great and we both loved the property. The village of Megalochori is small and quaint and the residents are lovely and helpful. Was nice to have our own courtyard and the privacy is a plus! Beds very comfortable, thanks for a lovely stay, A.
