Villa Melia

Lefkada, Greece

  • Stylish sea front villa with beautiful sea views
  • Steps down to private pontoon
  • Walking distance to tavernas

It’s a quintessentially Greek pursuit to hire a little boat and go exploring, but few holiday villas offer you a place to moor it or indeed have the elegance of Villa Melia. With its own pontoon, giving you direct access to the clear waters of the Ionian, and spectacular views across an idyllic bay, this is the perfect way to immerse yourself in island life.

Lovingly designed and built by the owner, this villa is contemporary in flavour – crisp edges and clean lines offering stark contrast to the rugged landscape all around. An open-plan lounge and kitchen open fully to the outside, as does one of the villa’s three bedrooms – the two upstairs having spacious sea-facing balconies (and each of the three boasting a stylish en-suite).

Nikiana is the location: a laid-back haven of a resort where a couple of good tavernas lie within easy walking distance. The beachfront bars and restaurants of Nikiana Beach are just a five-minute drive along the island’s attractive east coast.

Slightly further afield, Lefkada Town and lively Nidri are easily reachable by car – both offering plenty to keep families with teenagers entertained. But first they’ll need tempting away from that rather special pontoon – such a rarity in Greece – and the impressive snorkelling and swimming it invites you to enjoy.

Footnote

Villa Melia sits in close proximity to Villa Selina, a smaller property slightly higher up the hill, but otherwise identical. Although they are close, the private infinity pools are not within full sight of each other, so you can sun yourself poolside, and still have a sense of privacy thanks to a garden in between and a number of well-placed screens.

The two villas share the pontoon, and if booked together, both properties are ideal for families holidaying as one group.

Customer Feedback

Have had an amazing holiday in a fabulous villa. The jetty was a highlight ; we spent a lot of time swimming in the sea. We ate out every night even though we could have stayed at the villa. All of the local tavernas had a lovely atmosphere and provided all of the traditional Greek food that you could want. All in all - a fabulous relaxing holiday!
Cook Family – August 2017 

Fabulous villa with everything thought of. Good base for exploring the island, contrasts of the climb up to Karya - sleepy mountain village and pretty old town of Lefkus. With lovely views everywhere. We will definitely miss this beautiful view!
The Woodhouse Family – July 2017

We had a wonderful stay in this villa, very enjoyable. The pool was a lot of fun and was used almost everyday! As well as the pool, the pontoon was also made use of through swimming and boating. We rented a boat one of our last days and we enjoyed it very much. The food in Lefkada was lovely as well as the wine. Hope you enjoy your stay here as much as we did.
The D's – 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.
