Overview

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 )

  • 5 of 5
what a view! the four of us did like it so much, that some days we even didn't go to the beach, because we prefered chilling around the pool :-)
a special place! house is well looked after and clean. we rented an ordinary fiat panda and had no problems going up and down the gravel road. nearby the house, there are two big antennas, but they don't get in your view most of the time ;-) we are thinking about going there again. booking, payment, info... perfectly managed. cheers, markus

Peace and quiet in abundance!

  • 5 of 5
We would recommend this villa to anyone wanting peace and quiet in a beautiful and remote setting.
The villa was fantastic and more than lived up to it's description. Just what we wanted-a very quiet get away from it all location with stunning views. It had everything we needed inside and out. Perfect! The big American style fridge with filtered water and ice on tap was wonderful. The villa was very clean and well maintained. All the travel connections with the flight to Corfu and the ferry to Igoumenitsa were good and we hired a car from Igoumenitsa to drive down to the villa. James met us nearby and showed us the way to the villa. He was very informative and helpful initially and when he came to service the pool. The local supermarkets were easily accessible and had everything we needed. We tried out a lot of the tavernas in Mikros Gialos, Sivota and Geni. All great and lots of fresh fish and really good value. We spent a few days touring the south part of the island by car and loved the scenery. We would recommend a four wheel drive if you want to attempt the dirt roads like we did. We also hired a boat from Desimi to explore the islands of Meganisi, Thilia, Tsokari, Sparti and Skorpidi. The cost was quite reasonable and we discovered a lot of quiet beaches and coves for swimming and snorkelling. All in all it was a great holiday and we highly recommend it.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the comments. Greatly appreciated. Really glad you enjoyed it as much as we'd hoped. Thought it might be useful to remind readers that it's also possible to reach Lefkada Island easily by flying direct to Preveza (rather than the flight to Corfu, ferry to Igoumenitsa and drive down to Lefkada). The direct flight to Preveza is the quicker albeit slightly less interesting journey!! Again, many thanks for your comments.

Incredible views, peace & quiet...magical

Incredible views, peace & quiet...magical
  • 5 of 5
We booked this villa at the last minute whilst already staying in Greece, what an amazing piece of luck that it was still available. All well organised and we were met by James the owners' son and led up a rocky road to the villa. At first the road is a bit of a surprise but even in our small car it wasn't too problematic, in fact it didn't create any issues as it's only a few minutes drive.

The villa was spotlessly clean and has very good sized rooms, they are large anyway but seem even roomier because of the lovely vaulted ceilings. All the rooms have air conditioning but even in mid-August the villa was nice and cool and we didn't need it on all the time. We spent most of the time outside around the pool as we couldn't take our eyes off the stunning views. We have stayed in places with great views but the views here surpassed anything before, truly breathtaking. There was a lovely breeze each day, the pool was a perfect 29 to 30 degrees. Although the villa is very quiet it is only 15 minutes to Nidri, Sivota etc. Highly recommend for a family of four or two couples. Utopia!

Unbelievable views in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5
The views from this house really took my breath away - in fact they continued to do so all week. This is an incredibly placed house that is some way off the beaten track (over a mile up a bumpy track that is not for the faint hearted) and even though it is located quite near two other villas (one of which seems to be permanently uninhabited) there is an amazing sense of being on your own in a remote yet stunning location. The House itself is very comfortable in a practical and no frills sense with lots of space and nice cool rooms. The kitchen is excellent with a splendid fridge that churns out ice and drinking water all day. The sitting room is very comfortable with good sofas and a decent telly and the bedrooms are large and airy. There are also two decent bathrooms (you can flush loo paper here which is a rare treat in these parts).
But it is the garden and the pool area that are the real delight. At the front is an excellent pool with good steps and a shallow end for younger children and there are plenty of loungers and soft chairs. There are two tables at the front affording loads of space to eat out – breakfast with sensational views across to Meganisi and the main land was a big highlight for me. At the back there is a great bbq area with another generous table and chairs arrangement where we had dinner most nights with views over Ithaka and Kefalonia to die for.
A half hour walk finds you in the village of Poros where the two village tavernas lay on the usual fare but with genuine Greek authenticity (the local patron was completely charming to our children) and no sense of this being a tourist trap.
I definitely want to come back to this house – in several years of coming to Greece with small children I have not loved a place more – but it is for those who like life off the beaten track.

Owner's Response: Really glad you enjoyed the property so much! Thought it might be useful for also to mention the excellent tavernas down at the beach (Mikros Gialos). There are 5 or so and most catch their own superb fish. Re the access road...we liked your comment: "bumpy track not for faint hearted" - it's worth adding that these days the road is loads better and is driveable in 'normal' car, with care and at sensible speed etc. Trying hard to be objective about this villa, we feel that it's big advantage is the tranquility and the sense of being in 'your own world' but without being isolated. That's a rare combination these days! Again thanks.

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.

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.
