Guestbook comments from the owner
The villa exceeded the description details and our expectations and was in an ideal location, secluded enough to be quiet but close to local ammenities. It was maintained to a very high standard and equipped with everything you could possibly need on holiday. We enjoyed excellent service from the owners who we were fortunate enough to meet personally whilst there. We really enjoyed the garden and pool which had stunning views over the bay.



Our only regret is that we only stayed for a week and our granddaughter (4) is already planning a return trip. We can definitely see ourselves returning. Do not be fooled by thinking the description is too good to be true - it really is that good. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Villa

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Villa Gaia at the end of July, staying as family with two 14 year olds and Granny. The Villa is absolutely lovely, just as good, or even better than in the pictures. The position is great - a 5 minute walk to the beach on your own private path - we had no concerns about the girls popping up and down on their own, and the beach area is small and friendly and they happily hired their sunloungers on their own and got ice creams or sat in the little cafe at the back of the beach where all the staff are really friendly.

The view from the Villa is charming looking down onto the bay, and the view from the beach is fabulous looking out to sea. The beach is white pebbles, and the water was warm, clear and perfect in July.

The Villa has amazing evening outside and pool lighting that comes on automatically and looks magical - especially when you are out in the evening in the vilage looking back up at the Villa perched above the beach.

Lefteris and Kate were so helpful throughout the booking process and helped with car hire and taxi transfers that all went really smoothly - and when we were there Lefteris' brother Zois was around to introduce to the Villa and help with any questions (and a free Pedalo ride!)

Zois was on the beach most days and there were canoes and pedalos to hire.

There were about 5 or 6 local restaurants - we especially liked the view from the elevated restaurant with a balcony veranda in the campsite at the back of the beach and the restaurants round the bay slightly near the small 'harbour'. There was also the smart boutique hotel round the bay slightly for a 'sophisticated' night out (all of these would have been in walking distance from the Villa, although we took the car as we had Granny with us and they were a 2 or 3 minute drive).

The Villa was really comfortable and the outside seating areas beautifully thought through, and pool was great, especially having shallow steps in as well as a ladder.

All in all we had a really excellent holiday - it is a great Villa in a beautiful location, with a small friendly village within walking distance, everything perfect for a low key relaxing holiday. Thank you Lefteris and Kate.

Fantastic Villa Gaia.

  • 5 of 5
We must start by thanking Kate and Lefteris for all their help with arranging the booking and car hire and also the rest of their family who live in Poros who looked after us so well during your holiday.
Villa Gaia is absolutely beautiful. It is very tastefully decorated / furnished and is kept very clean by the family. We have holidayed at a number of Greek Villas before and Villa Gaia is by far and away the best we have stayed in. It is perfectly positioned by itself on the hillside with excellent views over Rouda beach and bay.
The garden and pool area is well laid out with plenty of seating areas to enjoy the sunshine or shade. We enjoyed leisurely breakfasts at the large outside dinning table after walking down the path to the village to collect fresh bread and croissants. The beach at Rouda bay is pebbly and during our stay (first week in June) it was lovely and quiet and we enjoyed afternoon swimming and snorkeling.
There are a good choice of Tavernas along Rouda bay and a few small mini markets that sell most things you may need. We bbq'd a few times and you will need to go into Nidri to buy fresh meat and fish.
We highly recomend Villa Gaia, you will not be disapointed.

sublime villa

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Kate and Lefteris for letting us stay at your beautiful villa. It was everything and more than we could have wished for. Tastefully furnished and very clean the villa and gardens are an oasis set in the hillside overlooking the archetypal Greek village of Mikros Gialos. It is evident the family locally take great care of the property. Plenty of seating areas to enjoy the sunshine or shade and we all loved the pool as it was great for cooling off.
Particularly liked the track down to the beach and village for collecting fresh bread in the morning and a relaxing swim in the late afternoon.
We never tired of drinking in the view from the villa down to the village which had everything you could need - choice of tavernas, couple of bars, supermarket and a small upmarket hotel at the end of the harbour.
We made the most of our two weeks in Lefkada to visit the island and liked Sivota, Lefkas Town and Agios Nikitas but we always loved returning home to our haven, Villa Gaia. A boat trip around the island is highly recommended
We did not need to worry about the rumours about problems with the Greek economy. Our experience was of a nation trying very hard to welcome visitors and genuine friendliness showed through with excellent service wherever we went. We found purchases and dining out was not as expensive as we had feared and was excellent value.
We will be back, thank you again!

Absolutely Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5
We were fortunate to spend 10 magical days at "Villa Gaia" . As a family with 2 children 8 and 11 the villa provided everything a family could wish for. The bedrooms, bathrooms and lounge room were spacious and spotless. The airconditioning is a godsend, the kitchen full equipped and the BBQ area outside was the perfect place to grill a few 'souvlakia' that we picked up from the butcher in Nidri. The kids spent the majority of their time in the fabulous pool, occasionally we would walk down the private path adjacent to the house to the pebbly beach below at Mikros Gialos (about 3 minutes walk, make sure the kids bring their snorkelling gear.)
The highlights were many, the view from the villa is gorgeous as you look down to the beach and bay below. A number of tavernas (approx 6) are situated on the esplanade, they have the typical greek food on offer, the fried squid is fresh and to die for as are the stuffed tomatoes.
The villa is looked after by the owners father and mother, Lambros and Katerina, who reside in the village above (Poros). They were wonderful and looked after our every request.
A car is a must if you intend to do some sightseeing. Nidri the closest main town is approx. 25 minutes away and the ideal place to stock up with food from the supermarket.(there is also a smaller one down at the beach) From here you can take one of the many day cruises on offer. Cost is around 25 euros per adult and kids are free, a must do. We also spent a full day driving around the island stopping in places such as Vasiliki, Porto Katsiki and Agios Nikitas. It's an easy drive as the roads are well looked after.
We spent over 5 weeks in Greece staying in a number of properties and without a doubt the highlight was our stay in 'Villa Gaia'. Thank you Lefteri and Lambros!

Villa Gaia is located in Mikros Gialos, a small sea resort, close to the village of Poros, in the south-east coast of the island of Lefkada (Lefkas) and one of the most beautiful and tranquil villages. Lefkada is one of the seven Ionian Islands located off the west coast of mainland Greece and lies between the islands of Corfu and Kefalonia.

It's a beautiful, fertile island with some superb beaches, an imposing mountainous interior and verdant valleys carpeted with vineyards, olive groves and cotton fields.

Mikros Gialos is a tranquil little village set around Rouda bay. Rouda beach is a beautiful pebbly beach with crystal clear azure waters. There are only a few hotels and apartments in the area, making this an ideal location for relaxing holidays. In addition to a few restaurants and traditional tavernas, there are a couple of mini-markets that can provide a lot of essential items without having to travel to a bigger town.
