  • Simpson Exclusive
  • Stylish contemporary villa
  • Stunning sea views
  • Steps down to water's edge

Saffron is a stylishly contemporary villa, set enviably close to the shore with superb views towards Lefkada. The house sits so close to the sea that it almost seems to float above the water. The architect has taken full advantage of this spectacular location, incorporating large picture windows into the living areas and a private balcony or terrace for each of the bedrooms.

The villa is superbly equipped with everything from WiFi to a mini-gym and there is direct access to the sea from the steps just 50m from the house. 

Saffron shares this magnificent position with Mimosa and is fractionally closer to the sea than its neighbour. 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.

Customer feedback

It was faultless. I was very impressed with everything.
Simpson Traveller – August 2019

Saffron – simply outstanding, I enjoyed every minute and the local Simpson Travel representative could not have been more helpful and engaging.
Jonathan Lucas – July 2018

We were really impressed with the whole Simpson Travel experience, from first booking, to the way things were sorted out for us before we went, such as car and boat hire, to the fantastic welcome hamper (which had everything we could have wanted), to the way we were looked after on the island and the way any problems were sorted out – we had electric problems which were quickly and efficiently dealt with. I would particularly like to mention Rebecca who was exceptional – she was always available and helpful with everything from offering to book tables for us to sorting out the air-con problems. Thank you Simpson Travel for a memorable holiday – we will certainly be booking with you again.
Mrs Waring – August 2017

Lovely stay in Meganissi. The villa is fabulous and the owners are friendly and helpful but allow you privacy. It is still the best villa we have ever stayed in. We really appreciated being so well looked after with discreet cleaning and towel changes and an exceptional welcome hamper. The coast nearby offers amazing swimming. Rebecca is very friendly and helpful and sorts out problems very promptly.
Mrs Dewar – August 2017




Yet another lovely holiday with Simpson Travel. As the Meganissi representative, Rebecca is outstanding. Saffron is an exceptional villa on a beautiful unspoilt island. The views are breathtaking. We have already taken an option on two weeks next year! Thank you.
Susie and Jonathan Pyper – July 2017

Thoroughly recommend Simpson Travel for a holiday. From start to finish, we feel we are in good hands and our interests and expectations are always satisfied. Would not hesitate to rebook. Thank you.
Mrs Wooley – July 2016

Re-booked for next year which says it all.
Mr Farrer – August 2014

Saffron and the island of Meganissi were both a dream holiday location. The villa is wonderfully appointed and in a fantastic location. Meganissi itself is peaceful and largely unspoilt, its inhabitants friendly and welcoming and there is a lovely atmosphere in the various restaurants and bars of Spillia and Vathy. The transfers are both painless and exciting and Simpson Travel is a superb company to travel with. The local representative, Rebecca, could not have made us more welcome. We would recommend Saffron, Meganissi and Simpson Travel without reservation.
Mrs Mosley – July 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.

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.
