Good to know… The pictures shown are of Elia Beach Villa which is identical in layout and style to Lemonia Beach Villa and shares very similar views from the terrace.


Enjoying a blissful panorama across Polis Bay to Kefalonia, Lemonia Beach Villa is tucked into the hillside just a two-minute stroll from the water’s edge. The picturesque setting is the perfect showcase for the island’s natural beauty and the west-facing terrace is a dreamy venue for lounging and dining as you soak up the tantalising views. Down on the beach, a simple kantina is a charming spot for a bite to eat during the day and there are sunbeds available for stretching out with a book or taking a little nap while the waves lap gently against the shore. The colourful fishing boats moored up in the tiny harbour offer their daily catch and life here feels just as it’s meant to be – unhurried and contented.

The villa’s two en-suite bedrooms (one double and one twin) both have doors out onto the terrace and the living accommodation is spacious, well laid out and comfortable. Though Lemonia Beach Villa is one of a collection of three properties overlooking Polis Bay, it enjoys a good degree of privacy with everything needed for a relaxing break on this magical island. The traditional village of Stavros on the hill is a 5-minute drive or 25-minute walk away - perfect for everyday essentials and a small selection of tavernas. Charming Frikes by the water is a further 10-minute drive and offers a wider variety of dining options. Self-drive boat hire is readily available for exploring the island from the sea and back on terra firma our Local Concierge can advise on guided walks and art workshops which can be arranged on request.

Lemonia Beach Villa shares a driveway with Rhodia Beach Villa and Elia Beach Villa. The houses are independent and perfectly suited to private bookings but collectively, they also work well for multi-generational gatherings or groups of friends travelling together.

Looking for 10 nights..? Why not add a 3-night stay in a boutique hotel in Kefalonia to your villa holiday. To find out more, view our 10-night holidays in Greece.

Customer feedback

Holidaying with Simpson is effortless. Everything is planned and catered for. We were due to go to Italy but Covid restrictions made this impractical. Simpson arranged an alternative holiday to Ithaca. It's a lovely, quiet island and the villa and location were delightful. Judith, the rep, is a fount of knowledge and helped enormously with advice and recommendations. A very relaxed week.

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.

The fabled land of Homer’s Odyssey and a safe harbour through the ages for Romans, Venetians and Ottomans, Ithaca is historic to the core: a beach holiday destination that comes with an epic story to match its beautiful landscape. The sweeping panorama of Vathy’s bay and a shoreline of eucalyptus-shaded coves give way to undulating hills of pine, olive and cypress groves, whilst timeless rural life plays out in the island’s unspoilt interior, ensuring that Ithaca remains a place to truly relax.

To help you unwind in style, we offer a selection of handpicked luxury villas, giving your Ithaca holiday a welcome touch of comfort.
