LEFKADA VILLA - EXCEPTIONAL SEA VIEWS - POOL - AIR CONDITIONING

Mikros Gialos Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 ensuite, air con, pool, extensive terraces & gardens

Spectacular Lefkada villa/Lefkas villa. Exceptional comfort & charm.

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 visitor wrote this regarding the views:

'The pictures do not do justice ... the views are mind blowing in their beauty.'

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, another feature worth mentioning is that the drains in this property are very much up to the job - no more leaving toilet paper in waste bins....

Breathtaking location with exceptional far reaching sea views & extensive natural gardens (lavendar, Jasmine etc). Two bedrooms, two ensuite. Pool. Air conditioning. Dramatic, setting above beautiful Lefkada village of Poros. Within easy reach of Mikros Gialos bay. The villa has breathtaking uninterrupted sea views & mountain views with pool terrace 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. Bedrooms & lounge leading to terraces with fabulous sea or mountain 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.

Background info to the villa:

[Please email for more info & photos]

On an island as spectacular and genuinely unspoilt as Lefkada, it’s not uncommon to find villas in beautiful settings with impressive views however this property elevates that category to an altogether new level. It's the superb ‘hilltop retreat’ setting, the uncomplicated yet superbly effective design and the literally stunning views which combine to make this a very special property.

Each generously proportioned room has been designed to maximise space and light with windows/ doors which enable guests to take full advantage of the surrounding views. Strong colours have been used throughout and the comfortable, modern furniture is of natural materials. Even the terrace furniture is high quality and comfortable.

NOTE: Although not pictured, there is now a large American style fridge freezer installed in kitchen.

Having holidayed in the villa ourselves, the words we’d use most are “charming” and 'comfortable'. It’s a really well designed and exquisitely comfortable house finished to a high standard and set in the most beautiful and tranquil location. Throughout our stay we never once lost the feeling of being somewhere very special. It really did feel as if we were in a beautiful, comfortable, tranquil world of our own.

Most guests are literally stunned on arrival by the location and incomparable views across the sea channel and to the mountains of mainland Greece beyond. Views in both directions, east and west, provide dramatic sunrise and sunset viewings. In addition to the breathtaking sea views you can enjoy a stroll through the rear garden to watch the sunset below Poros village.

The villa has extensive grounds. Delightful herb gardens (lit at night) as well as fig, olive and plum tree groves are bordered by natural stone walls and paths. There is a spacious pool terrace for sunbathing complemented by large areas of shaded terrace.

Key features:

• Exceptionally comfortable, genuinely charming villa.

• A magical 'hilltop retreat' yet easy access to village and beaches.

• Sleeps four in two bedrooms. Both ensuite and both with dual aspect window/door maximising the impact of the glorious surroundings. Although it accommodates four people in great comfort, this villa is often chosen by couples looking for a truly romantic property and location.

• Jaw dropping panoramic views eastward to the sea, Meganissi island and the mainland beyond and views westward back to the dramatic interior mountain ranges.

• Spectacular sunrise and sunset viewings.

• Guests comment regularly on the strong sense of 'escapism' and ‘connection with nature’ which they feel in this location as a result of the dramatic, far reaching landscapes, the natural gardens (with local herbs) and the wildlife including eagles and hawks (gliding on thermals high above the sea below) as well as tortoises and goats. You may occasionally hear goat bells tinkling in the distance.

• Watching the myriad yachts below gliding silently through calm waters enhances that sense of relaxation and tranquillity.

• The best of both worlds by way of privileged “hilltop retreat” yet easy access to Poros village below and the beaches beyond.

• Large, level plot with extensive natural gardens to both sides of villa

• Well proportioned, well thought out spaces

• Direct access from both bedrooms and lounge to terraces and garden

• Air conditioning in lounge and bedrooms. Insect screens on windows and most doors.

• Complimentary food hamper on arrival

• mid week maid service included with all rentals (house cleaning and fresh linen )

MY IDEA OF UTOPIA!

  • 5 of 5
Sunrise House was superb and we felt at home immediately.
You were absolutely right, it is a very special place and my only complaint was that with those views, I was only able to read half a book rather than my usual three or four books!

I have been to many places in Greece (including Rhodes, Crete, Samos, Athens, Kefalonia, Corfu, Patmos, Paros and Santorini) and thought the views from the villa beat any I've seen before - yes, they even beat the Santorini views in my opinion. I couldn't recommend it highly enough and would love to revisit again. Thank you for all your help and advice and to James and Neil for their help out there.

For anyone wanting an escape in a fantastic, well equipped villa with a good sized pool, views to die for and access to some great local tavernas, this is perfect. I thought it might be too remote when we booked it but I'm so pleased I did.

There's lots of walking in the immediate area and a great range of good value tavernas which are typically Greek. We hired a boat from Nidri for a couple of days which was a great way to see more of the area from the sea. Personally, I would recommend a 4x4 for the road to the villa.

It was good for the soul and I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Would love to return......

Owner's Response: Thanks Judith - So glad you enjoyed your stay. I think your comments were spot on: The location strikes a good balance between being in the most superb setting yet without being remote and with Poros village and Mikros Gialos bay within easy reach. Thanks again.

"CHARMING VILLA IN A MAGICAL LOCATION"

"Charming villa in a magical location"
  • 5 of 5
Hadn't been to Lefkada before and decided to spend two weeks but in two different properties one after the other. This was the second of the two properties we stayed in, and although only a 2 bedroom villa ( first one was 3 bedroom) it was excellent (absolutely). My wife loved the large garden area and being able to watch the sun go down at night on the garden side' of the villa. Beautiful bedrooms with terraces and great views. Again, a really sensible layout for kitchen, dinning and terraces. Clean and very well looked after. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend either this or the three bedroom. Thanks for a great time.

SUCH A BEAUTIFUL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
“Spent four weeks in Greece with two separate weeks (in different) properties on Lefkada. Had already been in Lefkada at beginning of month in a larger property. There were only three of us for the second week in Lefkada so this two bedroom villa was a brilliant choice. Pre booking / pre arrival contact with owner etc was first class. Were met on arrival and taken to house. The setting is hard to describe other than to say “absolutely amazing”. Beautiful position with such fantastic sea views (and mountain views). A really “comfortable” house with lovely character / feeling. I liked everything about it - especially the spacious bathrooms!! It was fun in the evenings moving to the other side of the house (not facing the sea) to enjoy the other gardens and contrasting views to the interior as the sun went down. Will be returning.

WISHED WE'D BOOKED 2 WEEKS RATHER THAN JUST 1

Wished we'd booked 2 weeks rather than just 1
  • 5 of 5
Had a great time at the villa. The property and the location were great. Take notice of the advice to hire a 4 wheel drive vehicle for the exciting rough terrain drive uphill to the villa! A really nice house in a peaceful and memorable setting which makes for a very special holiday. Contact with owner beforehand was good and the ‘reality’ matched descriptions and photos provided beforehand. Villa was clean and well looked after by the owners local management team. Views from both sides of the property were just incredible (took loads of photos). Very much enjoyed the island and the beaches, although the children would have been happy to stay at the villa and the pool all week. "We wished we’d booked two weeks rather than just one.”

Owner's Response: - Many thanks for your comments. Really glad you had a great time. Thought it might be useful for readers to give a little more info & context re the access road to villa & car hire. Yes, it's an unmade access road from village to villa & while bumpy in some places it is perfectly drive-able. 4WD isn't essential but slightly 'higher clearance' vehicles are useful. We advise guests to hire something like 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. Putting it all in context: you don’t need a huge high clearance vehicle, but slightly more clearance than a normal saloon car is useful. The locals go up and down the road in normal cars - seemingly with no problem. I think the reality is that some people would think the road no problem at all and others might say “what a bumpy road”!! Hope this helps. Thanks.

PHENOMENAL

  • 5 of 5
An incredible property in an incredible location. Being there was "good for the soul". In addition to the views and the feeling of peace we loved the gardens and the ease with which we could drive to the village and beaches beyond. Comfortable property with quality furnishings. Loved it.

Lefkada:

The (totally) unspoilt Geek island of Lefkada (Lefkas) combines crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches (many with European Blue Flag status), lush green wooded mountain valleys and perfect sailing in calm waters.

The villa location

This Lefkada villa is in one of the most privileged settings on Lefkas. A genuine hill-top 'retreat' with the added benefit of a location which enables easy access to beaches, villages and Nidri town. The villa overlooks the sea from a hill above above Poros village (a beautiful village on this totally unspoilt Greek island). This is an exceptional Greek Villa with simply jaw-dropping sea views from master bedroom, kitchen, lounge, gardens and terraces. The villa also enjoys beautiful, tranquil, far reaching inland valley mountain views and is situated just outside the charming, tranquil, quintessentially 'Greek' island village of Poros.

This beautiful, peaceful location on the hill above Poros village looks over to the Greek Islands of Megannisi and Skorpios as well as the Greek mainland mountain ranges.

In Poros village with its Greek Orthodox church there is also a bakery, a taverna and mini market. The nearest beach is Mikros Gialos, which lies below Poros and is a further five minute drive approximately. Here, you will find several (very good) tavernas. further afield are numerous beautiful and completely unspoiled villages and harbours such as Syvota, Vassiliki and Vlycho as well as the ever popular resort of Nidri.

Below the villa is Poros village and below the village of Poros are the beautiful beaches of Mikros Gialos (Yialos) and Rouda, with clean, clear waters and usually very calm as the bays are protected from the breeze. A little further on, from the southern end of the Lefkada, one can also see the Greek islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia.

With air conditioning, incredible sea views, private pool, gardens and terraces this Greek villa is a great base to explore the south of the Island with superb beaches and bays such as Mikros Gialos (Mikros Yialos), Sivota and Vassiliki. The pretty town of Nidri is only around 15 minutes away and provides a useful selection of shops, restaurants, cafes, ferries, boat hire and car hire as well as a bank and post office.

For those wising to explore more of Lefkada Island, their effort will be rewarded with a rich selection of some of the best beaches in Greece including Milos Beach, Pefkoulia Beach, Egremeni and Porto Katsiki, Nidri (Nydri) Kalamitsi Beach, Kathisma Beach, Agios Ioannis, Agios Nikitas, Nikiana Vassiliki, Porto Katsiki. Beautiful unspoilt Lefkada villages worth visiting include: Tsoukalades, Nikiana, Lygia, Meganisi, Agios Nikitas, Sivota Vassiliki, Karya, Kalamitsi.

In addition to relaxing at your villa or enjoying the superb Lefkada beaches, visitors can enjoy several boat trips, walking, cycling, motor boat hire, scuba diving, sailing or just exploring at your own pace by hiring a car or boat.

• Exceptionally comfortable, genuinely charming villa.

• Truly magical 'hilltop retreat' yet easy access to village and beaches.
