The bliss of Meganissi is its understated luxury – pristine pebble coves, blue seas and villages peeking out from behind terracotta pots of flowers; Spilia Bay House captures its essence perfectly.
The contemporary living spaces are peaceful echoes of the great outdoors: exposed stone walls, white-painted furniture and splashes of turquoise, with large windows letting in the light and making the views an inside meets outside affair.
From the balcony connecting the two bedrooms, the spacious terrace and the private infinity pool, you can see Spilia Bay below, just 150m away. When the mood takes you (or you’d like a little exercise), you can walk down the steps from your villa and along the road to enjoy those pale sands in person, along with the beach bar, restaurant and sunbeds you’ll find there.
Spartochori is the nearest village, along the road to the left of Spilia Bay and built around a natural port. Surrounded by pine forests, it’s a great spot for walking, shaded from the sun, and long lunches in one of the friendly tavernas.
There are 91 steps down to the villa from where you park the car and 171 steps from the villa down to the small road that leads to the beach. There are also drops in the garden. As a result, Spilia Bay House is not suitable for those with mobility problems or for children under ten.

Excellent holiday experience with Simpson Travel. Spilia Bay House was a dream villa on a most beautiful intimate and green Greek island. Highly recommended.
Christopher Hepple, May 2022
Another fabulous holiday with Simpson Travel! Spilia Bay House has the most stunning views from every room and outside area. Don’t forget your binoculars to watch the fascinating comings and goings of the vehicle ferries, yachts and little tourist motorboats which will keep you fascinated for hours on end. The house is immaculate and credit should be given for the twice weekly cleaning, which was extremely thorough. There are a few good restaurants in Spartochori (20-min walk) but it is worth driving to Vathy on some evenings for more choice. Don’t be put off by the number of outside steps – you soon get used to them and they help burn off some calories gained during the delicious dinners!

We had a great second week of our holiday at Spilia Bay House on Meganissi. Beautiful little island and the house is stunning overlooking the bay and over to Spartachori. Lovely tavernas down the hill and just a short drive to Vathy with lots of bars and tavernas. Ideal for a peaceful and relaxing break. Rania from Simpson looked after us so well and Simpson think and take care of every little detail. Very high quality service and accommodation. Just wonderful.
Julie Howieson – via TrustPilot – September 2021
We’ve just returned from our 7th Simpson Travel holiday, our 6th in the Ionian Islands. It couldn’t have been more perfect, from the pre-holiday communications and help from both the UK head office and local operations headed up by Chris, to the on-island assistance of the lovely Rania who all worked tirelessly to make sure our experience was up to the usual 5-star Simpson standard. And it certainly was! The journey was seamless and incredibly safe with the new protocols in place for travel and the island and all the wonderful taverna owners and shopkeepers welcomed us back with open arms, a smile and “yassas”! We felt incredibly grateful to be there; the island was a little quite but was definitely picking up, and as usual our villa accommodation was spotless, comfortable and Simpson Travel had thought of everything we needed. A faultless holiday experience, we cannot recommend them enough, and we will return! Greece is open and safe and will give you a very warm welcome.
Simpson Traveller – July 2020
We’ve had a wonderful week in Spilia Bay House. The views, the pool, the food and the location are all wonderful.
Frances & Mike – September 2019
The arrangements getting to Meganissi with Simpson Travel were the slickest we have ever experienced!
Mr Witty – September 2019
A more beautiful place would be hard to find. We have loved our week – eating delicious fish (sea bream galore!), discovering beaches around the island and savouring the delights of the house and the bay with its lovely taverna where the welcome was so warm and the food some of the best. We used the beach parking facilities – good tip. Many thanks to Rebecca and Simpson Travel.
Nancy & Michael – September 2019
A lovely week spent on Meganissi. Villa is fabulous with a view that you could look at forever! Got sort of used to the steps! We parked at the bottom beach car park sometimes to avoid the hill start on the drive. Took a boat out on two days – really nice way to see the island. Stopped at a taverna (Il Paradiso) – they help you moor up. Rebecca – great, very helpful when needed. Love Vathy – all of it really!
The Jeavons family – August 2019
We’ve had a wonderfully relaxing week, just what we needed. We’ve travelled with Simpson for a few years now and they never fail to provide quality accommodation, quality service and quality time. Thank you! We had an amazing adventure, riding the buggies to the tail of the island. You need a head for heights though. The views were breathtaking and the drive exciting. We also took a boat out for a day and experienced the busy waterways first hand. Vathy seems to have an understated sophistication about it, whilst retaining its charm. We enjoyed all the tavernas we went to, including the restaurant near the beach bar below.
The Jones family – July 2019
A perfect, private, peaceful villa. Heavenly pool, stunning views, just the place for reading a book a day! Another success for Simpson.
Mr & Mrs Royse – July 2019
We have travelled with Simpson for a few years and we are always impressed with the quality of service, the quality of accommodation and the quality of staff. Thank you, again.
Kath Jones – July 2019
We have had such a great time, what a fantastic place to relax and drink wine! The villa is great and we did not want for anything else as it is so well equipped. We will recommend the island and the villa to our friends and family. We hope to be back soon.
Matt & Suzy – June 2019
We have returned to this lovely villa and location exactly one year on and love it as much, if not more than last year. Do drive on the white road along the coast for beautiful swims and simple lunches overlooking the sea. Rebecca and Harris as helpful as ever, we can’t wait to come back again.
Liz, Willy, Ian & Dean – June 2019
Fab villa with lovely views. Very laidback place to chill out. Rebecca and Tina most helpful and friendly. Don’t think anyone could not enjoy this villa or the island and people.
C & P – May 2019
A frequent traveller to Greece and its islands. First time using Simpson Travel . Excellent from start to finish. Great teams across all departments. In resort the team was extremely accommodating, friendly and informative. Quality of the villas, transfers, cars upgraded with fully comprehensive insurance included. Much better than previous tour operator used for past five years . We will definitely be using Simpson again
Mr & Mrs Sykes – May 2019
Loved our laidback week on this island. The steps do get easier and we snorkelled down in the bay morning and late afternoon – lots to see underwater. We walked to Spartochori via the beach a couple of times – very pleasant. Rebecca and her team were the best Simpson experience we’ve had and we use Simpson because we like what we get. All in all a fabulous place – we’ll return.
Andy & Merete – September 2018
We have had a fantastic and extremely relaxing week. Rebecca organised for us to have a boat for the day from Vathy – a great way to see the island from a different perspective and some great swimming/snorkelling in clear blue waters. A lovely quiet island and one which we would love to return to.
Andrew, Katie, Molly & Jessica – August 2018
After a week of sleeping, eating and relaxing we’ve come to the simple conclusion that Meganissi is pretty darn cool. Wherever you go on this pretty little island there will be a place you probably won’t forget. Everyone is super helpful.
Ant, Di, Inds & Frez – August 2018
Two weeks on Meganissi! We reached new levels of relaxation. Rebecca is fabulous – couldn’t be more helpful! After two weeks the steps were not problem and Mike’s hill starts in the car were impeccable. Very special island and hope they keep development down.
Sarah, Mike, Rupert & Kit – August 2018
Fantastic week in a glorious villa. Spent most of the week watching boats come and go with the highlight being the 97m mega yacht! We all had a great time and hope to be back again.
Simon, Louise, Thomas & Caitlin – August 2018
We were here in September last year – it didn’t take long for us to return! This place is really fantastic; ticks all the boxes so hard to beat. This year we revisited all our favourite beaches. We love the location of the beach taverna on Spilia Beach, great to simply wander up the stairs back home after diner. Food there is fine, but for a really wonderful meal – Erikkos in Vathy.
The Knowles family – June 2018
What a great villa and stunning location. We have had a most relaxing week on this wonderful unspoilt island. Enjoyed Vathy for evening dining. The beach below offers great swimming, sunbeds and a perfect lunch next to the water. Rebecca and Harris are readily available to assist and couldn’t be more helpful and friendly. We can’t wait to come back.
Liz, Willy, Ian & Dean – June 2018
Booking the holiday was very easy, the pre-departure team very efficient. The villa lived up to everything we expected and more. Rebecca, the rep on the island, was very good. In all a great experience. Absolutely loved it!
Mr Keating – October 2017
We loved the villa – a splendid location and setting, and the quality of furnishing and fittings was outstanding. The Simpson Travel experience was extremely efficient and well run – from the pre-departure organisation, to the arrival at the villa – seamless transfers, friendly staff, comfortable transport – in a word, a really amazing experience.
Ms Pelteret – September 2017
Spillia Bay House is simply the best spot on the gorgeous unspoiled island of Meganissi. What a view! We could hardly stir ourselves from watching the comings and goings of the bay below from the fantastic pool. The beautiful villa was contemporary with clean lines and everything had been thought of for our comfort and enjoyment, it provided a cool sanctuary after a day's sightseeing. Having the beach only a walk away meant that we could maximise our days. The local rep was a mine of useful information anticipating or responding to our every need. The locals are so friendly and English widely spoken. We almost don't want to let anyone else in on this secret as we would like to keep this slice of Ionian heaven all for ourselves.
Mrs Price – August 2017
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
Local life potters along as it’s done for centuries and there are no bustling resorts on Meganissi, just three flower-filled villages – and yet you’ll still see luxury yachts moored in the harbours. Warmly welcoming, this island is also beautifully unspoilt; its coastline dotted with gleaming white beaches, some accessible only by boat or kayak. Inland, the rolling hills make for wonderful walking country, with shady pine forests and spectacular blue seas beyond.
To complete the picture, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas on Meganissi.
