What a delightful surprise to discover this stylishly contemporary villa on sleepy Meganissi, an island better known for its traditional architecture and serene natural beauty. Yet somehow the house looks completely at home in these surroundings, built over three floors to maximise the sweeping sea, mountain and countryside views.
The pool is generously sized for a private villa, but should you prefer a dip in the unbelievably blue Ionian Sea, there is direct access to the water just 50m from the villa via some steps. There is nothing around to disturb the peace and majesty of this spot, but for a change of scene, the beach and the tiny port of Spilia are 500m and 1,500m away respectively.
Mimosa shares this magnificent position with Saffron. Both properties are independent of one another and each maintains its own privacy, but they may be rented together for a larger party if required.

We have just returned from the most wonderful family holiday on Meganissi. This is the second time we have booked a family holiday with Simpson and have been so impressed both times. They make the whole experience of holidaying with young children effortless – the booking process, transfers, family extras even down to food being provided on arrival. The local representatives, in this case Rania and Rebecca, bent over backwards to ensure we could make the most of our family week away. Their local expertise and help was unparalleled. The owners of the villa Mimosa we stayed in were always on hand to help and could not have been more welcoming. The villa was beautiful, had every amenity we could desire and was in a great location. We will definitely be visiting Meganissi again – an undiscovered gem for sure!
Victoria Russell – via TrustPilot – September 2020
We were really impressed by Simpson’s customer service and professionalism. The pre-departure process was flawlessly efficient, and the logistics of our trip were really well organised and glitch free. The local concierge, Rania, was the star of our holiday – endlessly helpful, including offering to deliver food to us during the Mediterranean hurricane we experienced during our trip. Can't fault them, and will definitely travel with them again.
Jennifer Duvalier – via TrustPilot – September 2020
We have just returned from our first holiday to Meganissi with Simpson Travel. We were super impressed with them and will definitely return! The whole experience was first class – from the research and booking, to the planning, to the arrival...and of course the service when we were there. Rania was exceptionally helpful throughout our stay and made our holiday effortless. Villa Mimosa was incredible and we fell in love with Meganissi. I cannot fault the service from Simpson – we will be using them every holiday from now on!
Orla Chohan – August 2020
The quality and service from both Rebecca and the villa owner Sophia, was outstanding, both go above and beyond and make just 'our kind of recommendations and introductions' that enhanced our holiday. Genuinely nice friendly people, and you know that's rather nice in today's world, rare too. We have booked for 2020 before we flew home, need I say more?
John & Liz Davis – September 2019
Beautiful villa in a stunning location, on a picturesque, quiet island. Mimosa exceeded our expectations. Simpson Travel, as ever, made our holiday effortless.
The See family – August 2019
The owners/hosts of Mimosa were wonderful, charming, engaging and were beyond anything that we could have expected. There is not one thing we would change and can't wait to get back there. The villa, the island, the people...if there is a heaven, it would be damn close to this place.
Robert – September 2018
If you want the very best service and superb villas to choose from then Simpson Travel would be my first port of call. The staff in resort and at the airports are of the highest calibre and willing to go that extra mile for you with any last-minute changes of plan. The villas are of an excellent standard and I can’t wait for my next holiday. Thanks to all at Simpson Travel.
Clare – September 2018
As always, a good experience. Lovely villa and journey so easy and smooth as the reps look after everything; guided us to the water taxi and met at the other end.
Ms Dunne – September 2017
We loved our holiday. The Simpson Travel team were wonderful. A special thank you to Rebecca who has great enthusiasm for and knowledge of Meganissi. The villa owners, Thanassis and Sofia Spyros, were most welcoming and extremely generous.
Mr Neal – May 2017
We stumbled across the Island of Meganissi and travelled there without prior knowledge! What a fantastic surprise! Beautiful island without crowds, great restaurants where you always get a table without a reservation, small secluded beaches where at times you are the only people on them. If you want a holiday without the crowds, then Meganissi is the place to go.
Mr Goodwin – July 2016
Very satisfactory experience with our holiday in Meganissi.
Mr Shadrake – June 2016
A great holiday on a fantastic island. Meganissi is a gem in the Ionian Sea....a small island with friendly, helpful people who are keen to help you enjoy your holiday. Mimosa was fantastic. Great accommodation, great views and terrific support from the Simpson Travel team. Here's to next year!
Mrs Simpson – May 2016
We had a wonderful week at Mimosa which is set in lovely quiet surroundings with the most stunning outlook across the sea to the beautiful hills of Lefkada. It was very relaxing holiday spent by the gorgeous infinity pool and using the car to explore various beaches around Meganissi. The villa owners and our Simpson Travel representative were great and always available if required. Thank you to all.
Mrs Ashby – May 2016
Wonderful week in a beautiful villa – stunning views. Spent most of our time around the pool – so lovely to have all the different terraces to sit on.
Mr Dale – June 2015
Thank you to all for a truly wonderful holiday. The villa far exceeded our expectations with its quiet location and stunning views and Meganissi was the perfect mix of gentle bustle and complete rest and relaxation. Amazing that in the height of the summer season in the Mediterranean this laidback quiet place exists. We even had a beach all to ourselves one morning, which was a privilege.
The Wickens Family – August 2014
A glorious week of sunshine on a beautiful island. The villa was everything that we hoped it would be and we managed to explore the island by land and sea.
The Tucker Family – July 2014
Mimosa was a beautiful villa in a stunning location with a very helpful and efficient representative service from Simpson Travel. Meganissi is a completely unspoiled island offering total relaxation. Heaven!
Mr Brockwell – June 2014
Our first visit to Meganissi and to Mimosa. Both the Island and the villa were a delight. Even though our flight arrived late, there was a taxi on standby to take us to the port where a sea taxi was standing by for the final leg of the journey making for a very easy transfer. The villa itself is ideally located and in a very peaceful setting. Both the owner and the housekeeper were attentive and the local representative was very knowledgeable and helpful about the Island. Certainly a villa to consider a return visit to.
Mr and Mrs Thornton – June 2014
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.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
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 on Meganissi.
