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.
Note: We cannot provide exact location info on map shown (this is for security reasons). Please chat to us regarding more precise location info etc. Thanks.
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.
We had a fantastic holiday in this villa. From the moment we made first contact the customer service was second to none (particular thanks to James, Adam and John) and the villa did not disappoint. The views from the pool and terraced areas are probably the best on the island, with clear views across the water, over Meganisi, and to mainland Greece beyond. Internally the villa is spacious and comfortable, with everything we needed and more besides – the cold water and ice on tap were definitely a most welcome touch. The villa is completely private, so perfect for a get-away-from-it-all break, and there’s a supermarket not too far away for all catering supplies. Nydri, Syvota, and Vassiliki are within easy driving distance and driving distance to the airport is around one hour. The track up to the villa is rough but we managed this in a very small car and even on mopeds, so don’t be put off, just take it slow and steady. We highly recommend this villa and are determined to return.
We enjoyed a blissfully relaxing week at this super well equipped villa in South East Lefkada. The air conditioning and large fridge freezer with ice dispenser were extremely welcome but the crowning glory is the large infinity pool with stunning views. The villa has 3 separate terraces and there is really nothing nicer than sitting at sunrise or sunset watching the boats pass by.
Like many villas on this small, welcoming island, the track up to the villa is not for the faint hearted but once there you will be justly rewarded. The owners son was living close by and was extremely helpful but never intrusive.
Plenty of good places to eat and drink a short drive away and local Lefkada wine exceeded expectations. Visit Vassiliki for water sports- we did scuba- or have a cocktail with the yachting set at lovely Sivota bay.
We hope to return one day- until then we have fabulous photos and fond memories.....
Would like to say another of many stays at this villa just fantastic,sitting for hours looking at the views.Talking to Adam many hours went.Did not want to leave asked to be a lodger,would like to say thank you to Neil for telling us about pinewood restaurant had two fantastic meals look forward to booking for next year 12 June for two weeks lovely place.
Villa Skala is a lovely villa with simply the most stunning views you will ever find. We have stayed in many villas throughout Europe, but that view is just incredible. Set high on a mountain above the seascape of Lefkada and neighbouring Islands such as Meganisi and Skorpios (Aristotle Onassis's former private Island), the panorama takes your breath away. Coupled with a large infinity pool and comfortable air-conditioned accommodation, this villa is a very special place to spend your holiday.
Never had such spectacular holiday views and location. From the original photos we knew it was something fairly special but 'in the flesh' it was exceptional. Hardly moved all week and had one of the best ever holidays. Loved the fact is was so private there. Waking up to those views was a magical experience. Took a LOT of photos! Lots of space for everyone and although it was early in the season the pool was great. Thanks.
it's a dream comes true !!!
house, swiming pool and owners were really lovely.
you don't have to forget your 4x4 car because the house
is on the very top of a peak....

Beautiful villa near Poros villlage and Mikros Gialos on Lefkada Island. The (totally) unspoilt Geek island of Lefkada (Lefkas) combines crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches (European Blue Flag), lush green wooded mountain valleys and perfect sailing in calm waters.
This Lefkada villa is in one of the most privileged settings on Lefkas. A real 'escape' but still allowing easy travel to beaches, villages and Nidri town. The villa sits on a hill above above Poros - a beautiful village on a totally unspoilt Greek island. This is an extremely impressive Greek Villa with dramatic sea views. The villa also enjoys far reaching 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.
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, balconies 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.
