Perfect for families or couples looking for the ultimate beach getaway – combine it with Acqua di Mare – Villa Siena next door for the ultimate group holiday or bring the whole family along.

From cool tiles underfoot to the warmth of sand between your toes in minutes, this dreamy location boasts the sea at the end of the villa’s private garden. Whether you prefer to spend lazy afternoons listening to the lapping waves or stealing a few moments in the private pool, Acqua di Mare – Villa Bella is a special find in the most stunning beachside location.

Large windows throughout frame the crystal clear waters of Perigiali and the glorious panoramic views across to the islands of Sparti and Skorpios. From the rainfall showers that overlook the lapping waves to the unique stone basins and lighting fixtures, the owner has thought of every detail and created the most sumptuous of homes.

Couples will enjoy the peacefulness of the quieter seasons, when they can take advantage of the idyllic beach. Little ones will love the lawned garden and soft sand, gently shelving into the sea for a holiday with extra peace of mind.

A stay at Villa Bella means you’re only a five-minute drive away from the waterfront tavernas of Nidri and just a 25-minute drive from cosmopolitan Lefkada Town. However, you may find it impossible to tear yourself away from the crimson pink sunsets that create a perfect finale to each luxuriously relaxing day.

ESTELLE: A very memorable stay as my boyfriend proposed to me under the olive tree! Such wonderful memories to treasure. Thank you to Maria for your kindness and your help. LAURENCE: A truly beautiful week – lovely restaurants, relaxing time and under the olive tree – a perfect place to ask my beautiful Estelle to marry me! 😊

Laurence and Estelle, October 2023

A lovely, memorable week spent at Villa Bella - and the most romantic setting under an old olive tree in the garden to propose...

Mr Laurence Morris, September 2023

Such an idyllic spot with the beach at the end of the garden and shade provided by the beautiful trees. Thank you Maria for your help and Katrina for keeping the villa so wonderfully.

Shelagh, John and Lawrence, July 2023

Customer Feedback Beautiful villa in a wonderful beachside location. Everything on the beach: local Taverna for lunch, boat hire right outside the villa (day hire) , a bakery at the top of the road. Nydri is within walking distancing and Lefkada was E25 in a taxi. The master bedroom is beautiful- the second bedroom is much smaller and more functional. We enjoyed a relaxing week here relaxing by the pool and on the beach. The views of the bay, mountains and watching the yachts was wonderful!

Sarah sherman, July 2023

We had a wonderful week at Villa Bella despite the changeable weather. The villa is in a perfect location and is clean and well-maintained with everything you need and more. There are well-stocked supermarkets nearby along with several excellent restaurants to choose from. A short walk takes you to the bright lights of Nydri town. The combination of the villa's beautiful garden and pool combined with the small beach with shady trees and beautiful sea just outside the villa meant that we never strayed far. A totally relaxing and lazy holiday, thank you!

James Brook, June 2023

Had a wonderful relaxing week. Maria was amazing at advising the best places for our needs and wishes. We were less keen on the bustle of Nidri, and preferred the picturesque villages in the mountains. We loved quaint Sivota for local tavernas for great brunches and dinners. Katerina keeps the villa spotless.

Annabel and Ryan, June 2023

Almost one year on, we have returned to Villa Bella for another perfect week. Last time it was the two of us and ‘bump’, who is now a cheeky 7-month-old boy – Max! This villa is perfect for us – right on the beach and a short walk into Nidri.

David, Eva and Max, June 2023

We really enjoyed our stay at Acqua di Mare Villa Bella. We particularly liked the garden with the olive tree for shade and the mulberry tree just on the beach. Swimming just a few steps from the garden in the sea with the view to the mountains was a real treat & very relaxing. We had a brilliant day out hiring a boat from Dimitrios at the jetty right next to the Villa. We explored the island as far as the Cape on a day that started rainy but delivered spectacular views & scenery with glorious sunshine later. And still got back in time for a swim! We would love to return.

Heather Noble, May 2023

Perfect location in an immaculate villa and with boat hire on the doorstep. We’re sorry to leave and hope to return. Thank you, Maria, for your local knowledge and Katerina for your immaculate housekeeping and gardening.

Dave, Heather & Cath, May 2023

We had a wonderful stay with our 3 year old. Thank you for organising all the kids extras which made staying with a toddler so much easier. Lovely villa, pool a little bit chilly in October but we still made it in. Spectacular views from the upstairs bedroom.

Ronda family, October 2022

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish, already looking at 2023.

Katherine Tew, September 2022

We had a lovely stay in Villa Bella! We took it easy, watched the world go by. We really liked the zones, how there are multiple seating areas with varying amounts of sun.

Dwane, Beverly and Enid, September 2022

A wonderful first visit to Lefkada, hopefully it won't be the last. What hidden gem. This is probably the best holiday accommodation we've ever stayed in - just perfect.

Crosbie Family, August 2022

We had a lovely stay at Villa Bella! It's ideal that the sea is right at your doorstep. If you take googles/mask you can see all sorts of fish including seahorses and hermit crabs.

The de Winton family, August 2022

Our 4th time at Villa Bella and 12th Simpson holiday, which speaks for itself. Villa Bella never disappoints stunning location and we never tire of the beautiful views. Thanks to Ioannis for all he has done. Pleased to use the new Tassimo coffee machine and the new parasol in the garden is so much easier to use than the last one. Katerina always keeps the villa and outside area pristine.

Sandy and Debbie, July 2022

We had so much fun at Villa Bella it was amazing have the beach right on the doorsteps and we loved the pool and the Jacuzzi.

Katy, Amelie & James, July 2022

We had the most amazing and relaxing time in Lefkada at Villa Bella. Great location for exploring the island, plus tavernas and shops and most importantly the beach on your doorstep! Thanks Yiannis and Rania!

Eva, David & Bump, June 2022

Wow what a view from this villa! We've had a wonderful time, didn't really need to leave the villa apart from dining out and shopping. Any problems were immediately solved by Ioannis, to whom we are very grateful. A fabulous holiday, especially the views.

Jane, Pamela & friends, June 2022

Villa Bella is a delightful modern villa with space and great amenities. The pool is quite small but clean and inviting. It was lovely to go straight out of the garden gate to swim in the sea. There is a bakery, shops and restaurants in walking distance.

Janet Murray, May 2022

Excellent trip to Lefkada with Simpson Travel. Villa was great and trip felt very smooth and easy. John and Karen (the team on the ground) could not have been more friendly and helpful.

Rachel – via TrustPilot, August 2021

After a fantastic week at Acqua di Mare, the very warm welcome we received from Alexandra and Eva immediately made us feel at home for our second week of bliss on the island! Imagine our surprise to find that no only were we the first Simpson guests of the year, but the only Simpson guests! Having the terrace and pool to ourselves can only be described as ‘spoiled’ and were also spoiled with wonderful breakfasts and much care from Alexandra and Eva. Our highlights: day trip to Metsovo, Dedoni ruins, Lake Ioannina in the national park.

Peter & Helen, July 2021

From the time we left the UK until the time we landed at Preveza it was stress- free. Greeted promptly by Simpson staff at the airport, the Simpson rep contacted us on arrival at the villa, home from home facilities at the villa – every detail thought off and spotlessly clean throughout. Excellent location within a 10-minute walk you will find everything that you need from supermarkets to an endless array of restaurants. If you found it in your heart to find fault with this holiday package it would be impossible. Absolutely fantastic, keep up the great work.

Mr & Mrs Robinson, September 2019

This holiday ticked all the boxes re our family requests and more.... villa with pool, on the beach so sea swimming, walk to excellent tavernas to eat. Stunning location and views, the cleanest and best equipped villa and plenty to do on the island – thank you to our rep, Jo, for her excellent recommendations – just a perfect holiday – thank you!

The Hardy family, July 2019

The villa we stayed in was good but the garden, pool and direct access to the beach and sea beyond was AMAZING! The pool was very nice, with the attached Jacuzzi acting as a fabulous smaller pool for our 2-year-old giving her confidence to enjoy the water, so much so that she was swimming around the main pool by the end of the holiday! Having the boat hire at the foot of the garden was very convenient for us – we loved hiring our own boat and being able to watch all the activity on the sea from the comfort of our garden or pool area.

Simpson Traveller, July 2019

The location of the villa was perfect – close enough to Nidri to be able to walk to and fro but far enough away for it not to be intrusive.

Brian Hislop, June 2019

Villa Bella is a super villa in all respects. Beautifully and thoughtfully designed, extremely well-maintained and clean as well as being in a great location. It is close to amenities, but private and away from the throng, with good tavernas and essential shops nearby. We loved exploring the coast and Meganissi in a small hired boat, which we were able to moor outside the villa. The very helpful, local Simpson Travel representative made great recommendations and contributed to a super holiday.

Lucy Turner, July 2018

We had a lovely time as the first Simpson guests in Villa Bella. We had two very sunny and relaxing weeks, and hope you do too!

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide.

We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
