Here’s a final glimpse of some of the colourful sights of Megalochori. This little village is the center of the wine industry of Santorini and it is surrounded by vine yards
While the majority of the village is still firmly dressed in the traditional white and blue uniform of the island, you can discover some mouth wateringly tasty colour combinations if you scout about a bit.
We spot a tiny sign offering a glimpse of the inside of one of the many traditional cave houses on the island.
While many are private or transformed into fancy rental properties, this one was completely bare and you can see the actual rock it is formed from.
As you can see below, this fascinating below ground treasure is actually just in someone’s back yard, just a tiny sign alerts you to the fact that it is there.
Peeling paint and colourful wall heaven!
But reluctantly dragging myself away from my frenzied orgy of papping walls and doors, there’s still more twisting alleyways to explore.
The ubiquitous bougainvillea creeps over the blindingly white walls, while occasionally you can catch a glimpse of what lies beneath the pristine paintwork when you come across some of the unrestored houses.
Next up, possibly the best village on Santorini . . watch this space!
