This peaceful family hideaway is tucked away in a secluded alcove along a winding footpath, lined with white walls and cascading fuschia flowers, leading from the Megalochori village square. Villa Io is just a two minute walk from the village square and a million miles from your cares.

A stroll through the picturesque village reveals a few famous restaurants nestled beneath pretty Venetian church bell towers.

This once upon a time village school house is loaded with character. Delightful old world antiques and artsy hand crafted light fixtures mingle with traditional vaulted ceilings and arched passageways in this uniquely renovated home. The airy white interiors are always cool and comfortable. This is stylish simplicity at its best.

The vibrant red plaster walls of the private cobbled courtyard are dazzling; the perfect complement for the sparkling blue pool. Soak in the sun at the pool or wait for the dramatic mood lighting of nightfall.

Villa Io promises tranquility, privacy and a taste of traditional village life. The villa is ideal for families wanting to experience the authentic Greek island life-style of days gone by without compromising on modern comfort.

Additional Information

Villa Io once served as the village school for the local children of Megalochori.

The old school house has been sensitively renovated, preserving the original organic shape and proportions of the smooth walls, vaulted ceilings and arched openings of the existing building. These elements remind you of how the building was constructed, in the old Santorinian tradition of carving buildings into the soft pumice-stone earth of the village hills. The layout of the house takes its cues from traditional Santorini houses, echoing the shapes and colors of the island's unique architecture.

Another notable feature of the Villa is its natural ambient interior temperature. The natural insulation of the earthen walls of the space regulated the temperature of the school house, keeping the interior warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Today, this natural insulation continues to be an advantage, maintaining a constantly cool interior environment in the villa, even on the hottest summer days.

Santorini

Cousteau looked for the lost city of Atlantis here! On Santorini

Crescent-shaped Santorini (or Thíra) is the precious gem of the Aegean.

Did you know that the whole complex of Santorini islands is still an active volcano and probably the only volcano in the world whose crater is in the sea?

Blue Luxury Santorini villas offer the perfect setting for indulging holidays, exclusive honeymoons and romantic escapes in the captivating island of Cyclades islands cluster in Greece.

Is considered to be the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea.

Experience for yourself the once-in-a-lifetime romance and charm of this pearl of the Aegean
