Mikros Gialos Villa Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, two ensuite, air con, infinity pool, terraces, garden, balconies
Spectacular Lefkada villa / Lefkas villa.
Finding the right words to accurately convey the (genuinely) breathtaking impact of this location is really difficult. When guests arrive, almost without exception, their initial comments are “Wow, the photos were good and did give us a reasonable idea of what to expect but they simply do not do this justice”. (This isn't exaggeration on our part).
A recent guest wrote this:
The pictures don't do justice to this location. Those views are mind blowing in their beauty. If you want peace, relaxation and serenity, then this is the villa for you'
We say: It’s only on arrival, when stepping out onto the terraces for the first time that you are hit (strongly) by an almost overwhelming sense of awe. It is quite simply ‘another world’ and yet this ‘other world’ is only a short drive to the absolutely breathtaking bay of Mikros Gialos.
And .... before we forget to mention it, the drains in this property are very much up to the job - no more leaving toilet paper in waste bins!!
This is a breathtaking location with exceptional far reaching sea views. Three bedrooms, two en-suite. Infinity pool. Air conditioning. Dramatic, private setting above beautiful Lefkada village of Poros. Within easy reach of Mikros Gialos bay. The villa has breathtaking uninterrupted sea views & mountain views with Infinity pool overlooking the sea, Meganissi island, Skorpios island & mainland Greece. Extremely tranquil setting. Often, all you can hear are distant goat bells or the cries of eagles & hawks surfing thermal air currents over the Lefkada/ Meganisi channel seen from almost all areas of the house & terraces. Three bedrooms, two ensuite. Bedrooms, lounge & large kitchen all leading to verandas, balconies or terraces with fabulous sea views. Extensive terraces & natural gardens. A privileged ‘retreat’ yet easy access to Poros village / Mikros Gialos beach & other beaches including Sivota, Vassiliki, Vlicho, Nidri. Kathisma & Porto Katsiki.
(Genuinely) stunning location & superb views: It’s not uncommon to find Greek villas with impressive views however this Lefkada villa is considered to have one of the most stunning settings imaginable. We don’t use the word ‘stunning’ lightly. From the air conditioned rooms, the infinity pool, terraces & balconies there is nothing to interrupt the phenomenal views over the sea towards Meganissi & mainland. This privileged location allows guests to relax, ‘away from it all’ yet without being in an impracticably remote location. Cool blue theme throughout with soft lighting & comfortable furniture. Outside, after cooling off in the infinity pool, just lie back & luxuriate in the tranquillity.

In common with the more prestigious villas on this Island (those providing a real sense of ‘escape’ and in dramatic locations) the last stage of access (from Poros village) is via an unmade, although perfectly drive-able, road leading to the driveway of the villa.
Like most properties on Lefkada, a car is required. We'd recommend a Suzuki Vitara (4WD), Mitsubishi Pajero (4WD), Diahatsu Terios, 4 door Suzuki Jimny or, one the newer breed of (often just two wheel drive but) “higher clearance”, “cross over” vehicles such as the Nissan Qashqai.
They are good for the access road from village to villa as well as exploring some of the island's least visited and most beautiful spots. We can provide details of local suppliers.

Guestbook comments from the manager
Have stayed in other villas on the island but they didn't compare to this one. Well designed, Spacious. LOTS of terrace space. Natural Garden. Oh yes , and the VIEWS - I'ts an incredible feeling sitting there and just taking in everything around you. Enjoyed buying bread and honey in the village. A real treat. Thanks for a great stay. Will be in touch.
