We know that many Simpson travellers appreciate the combination of comfortable, contemporary accommodation with a traditional village setting, and Casa di Maura fits this bill perfectly. Set high on the cliffs above Spilia Bay, the villa also has spectacular sea views over Skorpios Island, Lefkada and mainland Greece.

The villa is perched on the edge of Spartachori village, which in turn curls around a picturesque natural harbour. A little grander than its neighbours, with a private infinity pool in prime position overlooking the bay, Casa di Maura is nonetheless very much part of the village, a Greek island classic of white-washed houses, flower-filled courtyards and bright blue views. You can wander the narrow streets and enjoy a car-free evening out with a carafe or two of wine in one of the local tavernas, or visit the market for some fresh local produce. There’s a stylish outdoor lounge area by the pool for breakfast in the shade or drinks before dinner, and three of the four bedrooms open directly onto a further large terrace above.

Meganissi is small so nothing is ever too far away. The closest beaches are just five minutes by car, and Vathy village and harbour, used by both leisure craft and working fishing boats, is reachable in 10. For a change of pace, boats to Lefkada sail from the port of Spilia, just a couple of minutes’ drive.

Customer feedback

We had the perfect family holiday at Casa di Maura. A wonderful combination of boats, large and small, kayaking, tavernas and lazy days by the pool. Rebecca the lovely rep was fantastic at organising our excursions, and the villa's owners bought us a home-baked cake on our first morning #breakfastsorted.
Mrs Clarke – August 2016

Quite simply the best holiday we've ever been on, in a beautiful villa in a stunning location. We were made to feel so welcome right from the outset and we'd love to do it all again next year.
Mr Furness – May 2016

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themelves, 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.
