- Stylish contemporary villa
- Stunning sea views
- Steps down to water's edge
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.

Mr Elgey – October 2019
Thank you for a fabulous stay – we have been so well looked after. The villa is idyllic, the weather perfect. The island is stunning – lots of walks and drives. Highly recommend Pistrina in Vathy – we went every day and had amazing breakfasts, pastries and lots of genuine welcome chat with Christina. Thank you Sofia for making our stay so memorable.
Mike & Janey – October 2019
We have spent the most idyllic week in this beautiful villa, surrounded by breathtaking views! We couldn’t think of a better location to escape to – escaping the fast-paced life we lead back in the UK. We really enjoyed motor-boating round the island – snorkelling and swimming in the numerous coves and bays. Feeding the fish was amazing. Fabulous, fantastic, fabulous. Thanks.
Rachel, Brian, Steve & Loz – September 2019
Thank you for a wonderful stay! We’ve loved every minute of our time in this beautiful house and couldn’t have been better looked after. Everything was perfect.
Charlie, Viviane, Alex & Jude – September 2019
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 excellent meet and greet at the airport, the transfer to the port and the very rapid transfer to the island by boat was a thrilling way to start. The warm and friendly welcome from Tina, Rebecca and all on the quay and the motorbike ‘escort’ to Mimosa was something special. We were met by Sofia and made very welcome – thank you! We have relaxed and rested, we are now going back home refreshed and revived to meet the challenges of everyday life in London.
Sarah, Paul, William & Amelie – August 2019
It has been a wonderfully peaceful week in a beautiful location. The villa lacks nothing and we have been very well looked after by Sofia. All our meals out have been excellent – Tsovolas in Spartochori, Tilevoes and especially Mikas in Vathy, which is Greek with a modern twist. The Pistrina Project as you enter Vathy does fantastic baklava for post supper harbour watching. We look forward to returning. Thank you to all at Simpson – the welcome pack was excellent.
Shan, Anne & Rebecca – July 2019
Wonderful time in Meganissi. Villa has been superb. Loved watching the world go by over coffee and waffles in Vathy. Great to hire a boat through Tina and explore some coves for private snorkelling! A big thank you to Sofia for all her kindness and for building such a lovely retreat. Everyone on the island has been really, really friendly and helpful, including in the big supermarket – don’t miss the bakery behind – the bread was warm out of the oven and delicious! Looking forward to coming back another year.
Philippa, Rupert, Eleanor & Hughie – July 2019
Thank you Sofia and Simpson Travel for a wonderful week in beautiful Meganissi and Mimosa. The welcome pack was very well judged and much appreciated. The villa is so well designed we are reluctant to leave. Tip: wait until the pool lights go off and enjoy a swim looking up at the stars. We will recommend this villa and Meganissi to our friends – it is very special.
Beverley, Dwane, David & Chris – July 2019
Overall an excellent holiday. The villa was just as we had hoped and the owner was very attentive to ensure we were settled in.
Mr Collinson – July 2019
Thank you for a wonderful two-week stay in the villa. Everything has been perfect – from the facilities, location, view, etc. to Sofia and Thanassis’ brilliant hospitality and their thorough care/cleaning regime. Such a peaceful environment (besides from the odd goat/cow bell!) to enjoy some valued time with family. Try e-biking – they saved our legs on the islands’ hills and Stefano is great at MEG bikes and will sort you out. Make sure you hire a little boat to reach some of the Meganissi’s hidden coves. Try kayaking with Alexis – you go right past the villa. Restaurants all good, hit Lakis early for Greek night to avoid disappointment – entertainment very good. Thanks again for all your help at Simpson.
David, Anne, Oliver & Amy – June 2019
Thank you to Sofia and Thanassis for letting us stay in this wonderful villa for a second time. Weather somewhat mixed but have managed to get out and even walked to the end of the leg of the island. Villa roomy, luxurious and a delightful, peaceful location. Ashamed to say only been on treadmill once! Waistline expanded rapidly due to all the Greek food. Thank you Koola for all your hard work keeping the villa so spotless. Still remains our favourite Greek villa of all time.
Angie & Peter – September 2018
Our second visit this year, and if anything, better than the first now that we have found our way around. Boat trip round the island was splendid and the spectacular cliffs at the ‘sharp’ end of the island were quite something. Our thanks as usual to Rebecca and Harris – who manage to make things run like clockwork and Koola and Sophia for making us feel at home. To paraphrase General MacArthur – “I shall return”!
Dorothy & Clive – September 2018
A stunning villa, a stunning island – we’ve loved it and appreciated everyone’s warm welcome and hospitality. Thank you to Koola, Sophia and Thanassis for the help and welcome – perfect. We loved all the restaurants in Vathy and struggled to find a bad one. Thank you Rebecca for helping us with a birthday cake as well. We will be back.
Louise, Rob, Esmé, Luca & Silas – September 2018
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
This is our second year here and it was all that we remembered and more. We went snorkelling off the steps at the bottom of the drive and found 12 sea urchin shells to take home. We hired a little boat from Vathy and went round the bays and coves for three days. The pool is lovely and view amazing. Hope to come back again. Amazing holiday.
Chrissie, Kate, David & Jamie – August 2018
A wonderful week in a fabulous, comfortable and beautifully located villa. Meganissi is magical - we loved the people, restaurants, beaches and views! A very BIG thank you to Koola, Sophia, Thanassis, Rebecca and Harris – we’ve been so well looked after. We hope to return one day. Another favourite Simpson holiday.
The Marshall family – August 2018
This was our first time in Meganissi and what a wonderful introduction, by staying at Mimosa. We have had a very relaxing, wonderful stay – eating great food, snorkelling on the beaches and boating around the island. All the restaurants are great, we enjoyed them all. Rebecca, Sophia, Thanassis and Koola have been so kind, helpful and are wonderful company. We will definitely be returning to this special island and sad to leave but with the knowledge that we are coming back next year. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
Trevor & Kate – August 2018
The villa has been lovely. We’ve been really well looked after by all. Spartochori and Katomeri were pleasant, traditional places to wander round before it got too hot in the morning. We ate too many lovely Greek cakes from Pistrina in Vathy. A diet awaits at home! Limonari beach looked lovely but I have to confess we only swam in the lovely pool at the villa. A very relaxing holiday.
Jonathan, Jocelyn & Elliot – July 2018
Our third visit to Meganissi and the best so far. Mimosa is everything and more that you could hope for in a holiday villa and the views are a constant source of wonder. The loungers are some of the most comfortable I have ever read a book on – well done! Loved the restaurants in Vathy. Tsovolas was excellent, Marinata was hilariously friendly, Stavros was a real pleasure and food great, Errikos was a great night too but the family highlight was a barbecue at the villa – took full advantage of the sundowner views. Great to be able to watch TV from the pool…only as the World Cup was on! Thanks for everything.
Fred, Dawn, Becky & Toby – July 2018
We came to Meganissi in search of some rest and relaxation. Both the island and the villa provided that and more. A little bit of ‘paradise’ indeed. So very well looked after by Koola, Sophia and Thanassis. Thank you.
John & Liz – June 2018
Mimosa has been a wonderfully relaxing week, made so by the fabulous scenery, surroundings and helpful but not intrusive staff – thank you Simpson Travel. Our favourite day was hiring a small boat and discovering the island from the sea, quite magical. Food is delicious everywhere, but the views above Spilia in Spartochori shouldn’t be missed.
Keely & Lyndon – June 2018
This villa is in a beautiful location, has everything we needed and is lovingly presented by Thanassis, Sophia and Koola – they are the perfect hosts. Their hospitality, warm welcome, advice and practical help has been invaluable. We loved the small beach by the ‘spit’ just a five-minute drive from the villa. Thank you so much – this is a magical place.
Andrew & Anne – June 2018
What a complete joy to stay in this beautiful villa! The views and serenity are hard to beat – and we hate the thought of leaving. It’s a very special place indeed. A huge thank you to Rebecca and Sofia for making us feel so welcome. Meganissi is a gem of an island – our favourite in the Ionian so far. We’ve had some wonderful taverna lunches by the sea as well as some barbecues at the villa which we’ve loved. It’s all been fantastic and I just hope we can return. Thanks again from two very satisfied holidaymakers!
Margaret & Jamie – June 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
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.
Every Simpson Exclusive Villa includes our complimentary Concierge Service, designed to make your holiday experience as relaxing and seamless as possible.
Before you leave the UK, our dedicated Pre-departure Team will help you plan the details of your holiday, from the logistics of your journey to your own personal requirements. Drawing on our experience and extensive local knowledge, we are able to accommodate any feasible request.
