  • Direct beach access
  • Private mooring
  • Stunning sea views
  • Walking distance to Vathy and tavernas

A villa with a pool is one thing, but when you find one that also has its own private moorings and direct access to a pretty little beach, you know you’re onto something exceptional.

Balos Bay Villa is discreetly chic, with three tasteful en-suite bedrooms and a magnificent master bedroom with its own balcony and incredible views. All the outdoor spaces face directly out to sea, jewel-bright by day, then fading from silver into indigo and black as the warm evening beckons you to the terrace for a pre-dinner drink. It’s the perfect spot for a family meal, a game of cards and relaxed time with those you care about, and if no one feels like cooking, the tavernas of Vathy harbour are an easy 20-minute walk away. For a couple looking for a quietly luxurious honeymoon, Balos Bay promises to make any bride and groom feel very spoiled.

Meganissi is significantly less well-known than the other Ionian islands, with its own unique blend of sophisticated accommodation and laid-back charm. Pottering about in a rented boat is the classic holiday pastime here, and with your own moorings and private sun terrace literally at the bottom of the garden, it really couldn’t be easier. If you’re just in the mood for a few hours on the beach however, you don’t even need to leave dry land thanks to the lovely shingle cove directly below your villa.

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.

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 in Meganissi to help you make the most of this exclusive island.
