Overview

Dragano Villa Rental Photos and Description

250sq.m. stone mansion, 3 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, Wi Fi, beaches closeby

This villa is an ideal getaway for guests yearning for a truly out of the ordinary retreat, just next to Lefkada's breathtaking beaches! Officially recognized as a preserved building, 'Meli' carries with it a history which dates back to the 19th century. It is a unique stone villa featuring 3 spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms (designer matresses & toiletries, Flat Screen TVs with satellite, hairdryer, safe box), spacious sitting areas with fireplace, dining area, fully equipped rustic kitchen (dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle, spices etc).

The attention to detail is evident in all the superbly-decorated interiors which combine rustic authenticity with all-modern amenities. A large courtyard, a traditional wood burning oven and large built-in barbeque to the side, create exquisite sitting and dining areas with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside. The secluded village is next to some of the most famous beaches in the Med (Porto Katsiki, Egremni, Gialos etc)

Villa Meli is one of the few vacation rentals so close (only 6kms) to Egremni beach, which was ranked 1st in Greece and 24th worldwide (out of 100) in a survey conducted by CNN recently.

The experience at Meli combines:

1. Luxurious living with all amenities at hand to ensure your comfort and relaxation

2. Close proximity to the island's wonderful long, sandy beaches with clean, turquoise waters (quite handy, especially when it might take people from the north of the island more than an hour to approach)

3. Traditional Greek village living, with an opportunity to taste local delights & fresh local produce (honey, wine, free range eggs, olive oil etc.)

4. Connection with rich nature's relaxing aura either by sitting at the villa's garden, or by enjoying walking or biking along the fields/olive groves/vineyards/mountain right across the villa etc. (4 mountain bikes provided for free)

5. Calmness and safety as the small village provides the necessary quietness to ensure you enjoy your sleep (away from crowds) and the safety needed for children to feel free to walk & play around (as there are not many cars around)

6. Genuine owner hospitality to make your stay with us carefree.

Why Elena Katopodi chose Dragano

I inherited it from my father who inherited it from his father and so on....

What makes this villa unique

The feel of tradition, the smell of the wood beams, the generocity in space, the totally relaxing countryside views, the nature's silent sounds along with those of the birds, the rooster, the donkey...

Magnificent place

  • 5 of 5
The house itself is so remarkable so it made our holiday even more memorable.
It is comfortable, charming, cosy and completed even in small details.
The location is very strategic for best beaches. The place is wonderful for calm, relaxing holiday, for nature lovers and retreat.

Gorgeous, chic, comfortable Greek country house

  • 5 of 5
This large, old house is impeccably renovated and furnished in rustic, chic style using local materials and charming furnishings. The house could be featured in Cote Sud. The garden is also lovely, overlooking a valley, which gives a palatial feel, though it's not that large. Immaculate. Well furnished kitchen. Also stone barbecue outside. All the mod cons. The owner's charming father showed us around and pointed out the places to go on the map. There was a cleaning mid-week.

The village has a nice little taverna, otherwise nothing else except honey stands and fig trees but it's not a far drive from some spectacular beaches. We did shopping in Vassiliki and Agios Petros. No pool, but all the more incentive to get out and explore.

Would absolutely recommend this beautiful house to anyone. We were two parents and three teens and had no shortage of space.

A magnificent honeymoon stay!

  • 5 of 5
This house is magnificent! We were there for our honeymoon and found the island and the Meli house to be the perfect relaxing, romantic setting. We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen and the wood-burning oven, relaxing in the beautiful garden, and taking the bikes out for a scenic ride. We thank the owners most of all for their incredible hospitality - for their suggestions of which beaches to go to, the amazing Rachi restaurant and the fun winery tour. We wish them the best of luck and continued success with their business - we would recommend it in a heartbeat! Jen & Ben

Out of the ordinary

  • 5 of 5
A perfect stay at the most charming, spacious and comfortable house I have seen in a while. The island itself is a discovery for me, the nearby beach Gialos practically empty and absolutely beautiful. Roads are better than I expected, Dragano Village is very well positioned if you want to explore the best beaches on the island. We're all having flashbacks from Meli ever since we got back, two months ago. That includes three and four year olds. Enjoy!!!
