This stylish new villa is one of a group of three individual properties that make up Arenaria Villas, along with Villa Porphyra and Villa Santolina, nestled among cypress and olive trees just a few minutes’ walk from Agios Ioannis beach. Over a kilometre long, this sand and pebble beach is one of the best on the island, known for its turquoise water and spectacular sunsets. There are beach cafés and tavernas here too, perfect for a morning coffee or a quiet drink as the sun paints the evening sky in rosy pink and royal purple.

If you’re more of a pool person then Villa Oleana serves as a tranquil retreat in the heat of the afternoon when the kite-surfers are flying across the bay. The terrace is a generous and welcoming space for a family or a group of friends to enjoy a laid back afternoon or a relaxed evening barbecue, and with three en-suite bedrooms, everyone gets to feel suitably pampered. If cooking’s not on the agenda, charming Lefkada town offers plenty of dining choices just ten minutes away in the car. Oleana’s location means you’re also well placed to explore the contrasting coasts of Lefkada, from the tiny coves and bays of the east to the imposing cliffs and white beaches of the west.

Beautiful, excellently appointed villa. What a view to enjoy a meal outdoors under the olive tree. Good advice and help from Yiannis. Local taverna is a short walk away, good quality. Lovely pool kept very clean by the pool man twice a week. And the wonderful Hrisanthi, such a hard worker, cheerful and a pleasure to know.

Paul & Amanda, May 2024

A very enjoyable holiday and stress free. A special mention must go to Yiannis your rep in Lefkada who was amazing. We wanted quiet haunts and nice places to eat and he really came up with the goods! All round lovely person and we were so glad we met him! Even brought a bottle of champagne over when he heard it was our 25th wedding anniversary!

Mrs Carol Heather, September 2023

We have grown to love Lefkada and the villa is an excellent, comfy base with just the sound of goats, sheep, cockerels and the waves! We wanted less busy haunts and Yiannis was not only brilliant and spot on with his suggestions but all the restaurants we visited on his recommendation were really fantastic. Our 25th wedding anniversary couldn’t have been better. Thank you Yiannis and for the champagne!

The Heathers, September 2023

A fantastic week away. Yiannis was an absolute star – not only helping us to replace a hire car that lacked the oomph to get up the drive but also in booking us a table at Rachi – what a remarkable place to spend an evening. We pushed the boat out – forgive the pun – and hired a yacht and would thoroughly recommend Dream Water Charter in Nidri. Ian and Sarah gave us a day that we will always remember. There is a small, secluded beach a few minutes’ walk away and the equally close Liogerma taverna was a welcoming place with a lively atmosphere.

The Riddingtons, August 2023

Fabulous week in an equally fabulous villa. Thank you, Yiannis, nothing was too much. Excellent recommendations and all spot on! Thank you.

The Walker family, August 2023

Villa Olena is a fantastic villa in a good location, the concierge service from Yiannis absolutely made the holiday, his recommendations and advice not to mention the most amazing boat day he organised. We went from having a wonderful time to having the most amazing holiday! Thank you.

Mrs Sarah Walker, August 2023

Fabulous week in a lovely villa. Thank you Yiannis for all your restaurant recommendations and bookings. A very special part of the world to explore by boat. I shall miss breakfasts with that view!

The Cotterell family, July 2023

Oleana is a fabulous villa, stunning views and a great location within easy reach of the beach and tavernas. Yiannis was the best! Such a lovely man and so very helpful. Thank you Simpson Travel for a lovely week!

Julie Stevens, May 2023

Amazing views. The swimming pool was lovely and a very good size. An easy walk to the local beach with atmospheric tavernas and bars.

Louise Bardsley, August 2022

Wonderful, modern villa in a good location a short drive from Lefkada town and within walking distance of the beach.

Nicola Sticklen, July 2022

Overall we had a fabulous holiday – thank you.

Mr Kennett, September 2019

Totally what we hoped for after viewing this holiday on-line – would not have changed a thing! The location of the villa was just perfect and so lovely to come back to it after a busy day out and about. Our rep, Jo, was very helpful, attentive and full of local knowledge. The bay below was walking distance and the lovely bustling town a short drive away. Totally relaxing, very Greek and of course very beautiful. Well done Simpson, a real gem.

The Edmonston family, July 2019

We had an amazing holiday. The villa, including pool, was even better than we imagined – very clean and spacious. A very big thank you to the Simpson staff, who were helpful and informative; their recommendations and advice for places to visit did not disappoint. We are looking forward to our next visit in August!

The Carbon Family, June 2019

Another year and the same routinely excellent holiday experience from Simpson Travel. Very thoughtful service which filters down to the airline and car hire company. We had a really good holiday.

Andrew Hardwick, June 2019

Two great weeks spent at Villa Oleana! We’ve lazed around, explored the island and had a go at some watersports! We’re not really beach people, so will leave those recommendations to others, but what we will say is take Jo’s advice – it’s good! Have a great time in Lefkada!

Mrs F, August 2018

We’ve had two amazing weeks in Lefkada. Take time early in your stay to talk to Jo and get advice on things to do. Her recommendations were spot on and she was so quick to help when we had questions. We hired a private speed boat in Nidri for a day – possibly our favourite day. Can’t go wrong even if you have never done it before. It’s a great way to explore the little coves only accessible by boat. Worth doing the journey down to Sivota or Vasiliki for a change of scenery and a nice evening out. Have a great time here, we did!

Mr T, July 2018

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.

Charmingly traditional, Lefkada is an authentically Greek holiday delight fringed by award-winning beaches. The stunning colours of the landscape are a vibrant force of nature; uplifting, brilliant shades of shocking pink, green and translucent turquoise. Central to all this is Lefkada Town, with its pretty car-free streets, excellent choice of restaurants and waterfront bars and lovely bohemian vibe. It is well-suited to both couples and families and Lefkada is an excellent choice for one of our popular kids' clubs.

To make the most of your luxury holiday in Lefkada, we offer a selection of handpicked villas and a stylish adult-only Simpson Hotel so you can enjoy this beautifully relaxing Greek Island to the full.
