The first thing you’ll notice about this rather romantic cottage is the view. Perched on the hillside above Vasiliki, Mylos is one of four, immaculate little detached properties looking out over green hills to the brilliant blue of the Ionian and all the way to Ithaca and Kefalonia beyond. The owner, George, designed the accommodation very much with couples in mind, creating two one-bedroom cottages and two large studios, each with their own private swimming pool and terrace. Mylos has comfortable interiors complemented by stunning views. The white-painted timbers, high ceilings and seaside-inspired colour scheme lend real beach-house charm, and each little house has been named after one of the best beaches on the island: Mylos, Kathisma, Afteli and Katsiki.

Vasiliki is renowned for its windsurfing, yet this delightful and sleepy resort offers so much more with enough sea front tavernas to enjoy somewhere different each night and boasting some of the finest beaches not just in Lefkada, but the whole of the Ionian – you can take a little boat to Agiofili beach or make a longer trip to one of the celebrated west coast beaches, such as Porto Katsiki, Mylos, Kathisma or Pefkoulia, which are also easily accessible by hire car. Best of all, the cottages are less than a ten-minute drive from Vasiliki, so you can dip in and out as you like, always with the option of your own private pool and terrace to escape to.

Your delightful hosts, George and Yianna, have thought of everything and this special cottage has been created from passion and a dedication to detail that makes a stay here so unique and epitomises the best that this stunning island has to offer.

Customer Feedback

Every element of our experience of Simpson has been excellent – we will return and use Simpson again – our thanks to the team for making our holiday so perfect.
Gail 0 – September 2019

The usual high standard was maintained and we had a very relaxed holiday.
Gavin – June 2019

My wife and I have visited a number of the Greek islands but felt that Lefkada was the most beautiful of those we have visited. Our visit was in May and we knew that the weather forecast for the time included some cool periods and rain/thunderstorms. However the island was verdant and wild flowers and herbs were abundant, even the rain cloud formations and shadows added to the wonderful scenery. On one rainy day at our villa, we decided to head to Nidri on the east side of the island. The sky was clear, the sun was out and we had a lunchtime snack at a taverna and had a very pleasant swim in the sea. The local people were exceptionally friendly and helpful, which was an added bonus since neither of us spoke more than a few courtesy words in Greek. In May the island is fairly quiet which makes it a pleasure to drive around and see more of the spectacular coastline and visit the beautiful coves which were virtually empty during our visit. Thank you, Simpson!
Mrs Wilkinson – May 2019

We enjoyed a lovely relaxing week at Mylos, it is a perfectly peaceful location with gorgeous views. The villa is perfect, so nice to find a villa for two. Great service from our Simpson rep as always!
Mr & Mrs Stevens – May 2019

Exactly what it says on the tin! Vasiliki Cottages – Mylos is private, secluded and relaxing with beautiful views.
Mr Perkins – September 2018

We spent two weeks at Mylos on our honeymoon and absolutely loved everything about it. George, the owner, has thought of everything. From coffee machines, Bluetooth speakers, WiFi access, barbecues and shaded carports – there's nothing you're left wanting. Even though there are four villas very close together, privacy isn't an issue in the slightest. The view of Vasiliki from the mountain was just beautiful, and if you fancy walking down for a Retsina, it's only 20 minutes away. Simpson Travel took care of every little detail and we will definitely be returning. Thank you!
Mr Cooper – August 2018


We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing week. The Cottage wants for nothing – beautiful private pool area. We really liked Sivota – the bakery was great for coffee and a light lunch and Stavros for dinner. Beaches in the immediate area are really picturesque. Loved our trips up in the mountains – stunning scenery and sunsets. Jo recommended the ‘Christina’ boat trip – unfortunately it gets booked up quickly, so we missed out – best to book as soon as you arrive. Our first Simpson Travel holiday but it won’t be our last! Both George and Jo are really helpful. We would love to come back again. Very impressed.
Davon & David – August 2018

We had a magnificent fortnight, with regular trips to Afteli and a lot of eating in Vasiliki. We thought it was really worthwhile going to Lefkada town, and generally speaking thought that all the towns were charming. We also really enjoyed sitting in Sivota for breakfast and watching the boats. George and the reps were wonderfully helpful and welcoming. Everything was as good as it could have been and we would love to come back.
Mowk & Tory – July 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.
