Background info to the villa: [email for more info & photos]

NOTE- Ground floor bedroom and bathroom have wide access doors suitable for wheelchair users.

The owners set out to build a Lefkada villa with ‘wow’ factor & certainly succeeded. They maximised the dramatic impact of its close proximity to the water, the outstanding far reaching views & its exceptional location. They wanted to make the pool a particular feature & the local Mayor believes this is the largest (private villa) pool on the island 15 metres in each direction of the ‘L’ shaped infinity pool. The extensive glazed areas reinforce that sense of space & light whilst taking full advantage of beautiful views in all directions.

Broadband internet.

Hi-spec seven seater** 4WD car available as optional extra. .

**Note: It's a five seat vehicle with 2 additional, fold down 'jump seats' in the rear section making seven in total. For parties of eight people we can (usually!) arrange help on arrival at Preveza airport in the form of another vehicle for the transfer of people & luggage from airport to villa.

A great example of classic good design: This villa is an exceptional example of good design with close attention to detail & featuring elegant finishes such as marble floors, staircase & bathrooms. All four spacious bedrooms are ensuites & have direct access to outside terraces. Bedrooms & lounge have electrically operated external sun blinds (very useful).

Large, comfortable lounge (triple aspect to maximise close range sea views) leading to dedicated dining area & kitchen.

Kitchen located to give easy, direct access via patio doors to large, adjacent shaded terrace ideal for al fresco dining.

Kitchen & lounge are unusually spacious whilst outside, that sense of space & generous proportion is continued with extensive poolside terraces, shaded BBQ area & very large ‘L’ shaped infinity pool 15m x 15 m each side of the 'L'. Furniture is classic & comfortable, even the beds have superior mattresses. One superb feature is the pool shower with hot water as well as cold.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We know Lefkada well although hadnt stayed in Mikros Gialos before. Were originally attracted by the incredible pool. Have to say the rest of the house didnt disappoint. Wonderfully comfortable property. We adored the master bedroom and ensuite. Will never forget those views. Will book again..

VILLA IS AMAZING

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was amazing, spacious inside and out, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and in a gorgeous location. The pool is fantastic - you won't be disappointed. All pictures and descriptions were accurate and all arrangements with the owner went perfectly. The only problem was that a week was just too short a time to fully enjoy the villa and island in general! We went for a standard hire car which was OK but would probably go for a 4x4 next time.

HOW LOVELY IS THIS!

  • 5 out of 5
The review title should be far more superlative than this but I just had to use it as this was the phrase I used every few minutes spent at the villa - on waking, as we gazed through the panoramic windows from the master bedroom, having breakfast on the sunny terrace, enjoying the sun by the pool and last but not least swimming and just gazing over the edge of the fabulous infinity pool.
The villa looked 5 star from the photos supplied but the real thing surpassed all! It is top class with every facility you could wish for. It's extremely luxurious and at the same time leaves you with a homely, comfortable feeling. We were a party of four and so could lose each other in and around the villa easily(when we wanted to), I should imagine that even with the party of eight there would always be a secret spot to find and still enjoy the fabulous views. There are terraces and seating areas on all levels. I can't praise the villa enough for its layout and facilities - nothing has been overlooked.
The views are absolutely devine, the bay of Mikros Gialos to the right and the rest beautiful views out to sea and the multitude of small islands - "how lovely is this" to wake up to every morning. It couldn't be better! Also although we were there in early May the sun shone everyday of our two week holiday. We couldn't have been happier!
The pool is a fantastic feature of the house, a huge L shaped infinity. We swam every day and I spent much time just gazing over the edge at the magical views!
James, the owners son, met us at the airport with our hire car and led us back to the villa. He was very helpful and friendly and gave us lots of information about the house and places to visit, including restaurants around the island. Thank you James.
He came twice a week to manage the pool but was always available by phone if there were any problems - we didn't have any!
This was our first visit to Greece and what an introduction! We rarely visit the same place twice but in this case we will make an exception. Lefkada is a beautifully natural island to visit, inland into the hills and the coastline and all the beautiful bays. The stay in this house was the icing on the cake! Many thanks to all for making our holiday perfect! We'll be back!

TOTALLY AWESOME

  • 5 out of 5
Loved everything about this villa and felt right at home from the start. We picked this place because of the pool and this was a real 'star feature'. Just awesome. We particularly liked the peace and quiet here and just being able to watch the occasional yacht drifting silently across the bay was truly wonderful. The large shady dining area outside was a real bonus allowing us to cool off after baking round the poolside! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this villa. Thanks for a brilliant time

ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT

  • 5 out of 5
The house was amazing and had so much space. Everyone appreciated the huge pool and also the large bedrooms with lots of storage areas! Hadn't been to Lefkada before but will definitely be returning and hopefully to this villa. Lovely comfortable quality furniture and everything spotlessly clean. The master bedroom terrace was beautiful and our favourite spot to relax with morning coffee just taking in the amazing scenery. Very impressed with the beach and the tavernas there- we didn't stray far from Mikros Gialos the whole time!

GREAT VILLA.REALLY HELPFUL MANAGEMENT.

  • 5 out of 5
We’ve visited Lefkada several times before and this year needed a bigger place and one which was within walking distance to the beach. Very happy with our choice!! Such a comfortable villa and very well equipped.. James and his partner couldn’t have been more helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. I’ll always remember waking up to those exquisite views. It’s also a very peaceful location. Good for the soul!!

A SUPERB VILLA IN A STUNNIG LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
The villa was everything the information promised and more. We had a great time and had lots of space to lose ourselves in/on. James the owner's son was very helpful and responded very quickly to any problems we had. We all thought the location stunning and never tired of looking out from the terraces down into the bay and village of Mikros Galios. The beautiful pool was well used and its size made it really special. However as there was no "shallow" end those with small children may need to take care. The equipment provided was all of a high quality but an espresso coffee maker would have been useful but not an essential. For those that like to watch television whilst on holiday be aware that only Greek channels are available on the television, no satellite tv is provided so take your own DVDs. It wasn't a problem for us as we were enjoying the views and the pool and didn't spend any time in the lounge.
All of the bedrooms had lots of storage space and good views. One bedroom is at a lower level in the main house and is reached by its own entrance and It has a large sun terrace of its own with loungers, tables and chairs.
The 4x4 vehicle provided was necessary as the road up to the villa was unmade and very rough. It is possible to walk into the village in about 15 minutes and back in about ten, shorter times as you get fitter as it is quite a climb out of the village.
All in all a perfect holiday in perfect location in a perfect villa.
Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Many thanks Geoff. Really glad you all enjoyed it so much. Thought it might be useful to mention that with the majority of private, villa pools (especially on Lefkada) they are at a more or less constant depth (i.e. beyond the 'easy entry' steps) because pools of that size can't easily accommodate a conventional 'shallow' end without sacrificing a lot of otherwise valuable, free swimming area. Having said that, it's worth pointing out that the easy entry steps provide an area where toddlers under supervision can cool off and providing they have arm bands/ supervision they can swim freely in the rest of the pool. With the TV, sadly, it is not currently possible to receive UK satellite reception in the area of Mikros Gialos. Glad you enjoyed the vehicle provided. Regarding whether a 4x4 is needed: despite the fact that it is a bumpy road from the village to the villa it certainly is possible without a 4x4 - the same cannot be said for the access roads to many of the other prestige villas on the island!!

We try to avoid using the words “luxury villa” as inevitably their interpretation/definition can vary depending on the reader. With this Lefkada villa we’d simply refer to it as a superbly designed, (genuinely) spectacular property in an unconditionally breathtaking location. We don’t use these words lightly. The villa also has (so we’re told by the Mayor) the largest villa pool on the island.

The (totally) unspoilt Geek island of Lefkada (Lefkas) combines crystal clear waters, beautiful beaches (European Blue Flag), lush wooded mountain valleys and perfect sailing in calm waters. Quality tavernas, relaxing by your pool, snorkelling in the clear waters of the bays, excellent sailing and exploring the inland villages are some of the ways to spend your holiday time on Lefkada.

This Lefkada villa is in one of the most privileged settings on the island overlooking the beautiful sheltered bay of Mikros Gialos renowned for its beach and tavernas. Although not strictly a ‘waterfront villa’ (cant step from villa onto beach) it’s very close to the water as you can see from the photos.

This villa has panoramic sea views stretching from Mikros Gialos bay out to the islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia making this a very dramatic location. There are several impressive Lefkada villas however this is a property which is hard to tear yourself away from. For those who want to explore the coastline, there are many incredible coves and bays nearby.

“Mikros” combines several rare ingredients to create an unforgettable holiday villa experience. The setting. The proximity to the water. The quality of build. The attention to detail of its design. And not forgetting, the stunningly beautiful bay of Mikros Gialos. To envisage a more perfect setting and luxuriously appointed holiday villa would be difficult.

This large air conditioned villa with infinity pool sits on a hillside overlooking the picture-postcard bay of Mikros Gialos. Above Mikros Gialos bay lies the sleepy village of Poros. Poros is a quintessentially, picture postcard, Greek country village with church on the hillside and numerous exceptionally quaint rural house houses (many with beehives in their gardens for producing the local honey).

Mikros Gialos is a horseshoe shaped bay in the south of Lefkada island. The exceptionally picturesque beach is excellent for swimming and snorkelling. From the bay, the beach and the villa there are clear, far-reaching views out to the open sea and the beautiful nearby islands of Ithaka and Kefalonia.

Mikros Gialos bay has several (extremely good) tavernas as well as a useful ‘mini-market’ type shop. These can be reached on foot, approximately twelve minutes walk from the villa (uphill on the way back!). Beyond Mikros Gialos and Poros are numerous beautiful and completely unspoilt villages and harbours (superb if you like photography) such as Sivota Bay, Vassiliki Bay, Vlycho and Nidri town. Nidri (approx twenty minutes) is a particularly useful town with numerous shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, post office, car hire and ferries leaving for Meganissi island. There are also several boat hire centres, sailing schools and water sports centres here. Maybe hire a boat and motor across to Meganissi or one of the tiny islands nearby.

For those wising to explore more of Lefkada Island, their effort will be rewarded with a rich selection of some of the best beaches in Greece including Milos Beach , Pefkoulia Beach , Egremeni and Porto Katsiki , Nidri (Nydri) Kalamitsi Beach , Kathisma Beach, Agios Ioannis, Agios Nikitas, Nikiana Vassiliki, Porto Katsiki . Beautiful unspoilt Lefkada villages worth visiting include: Tsoukalades, Nikiana, Lygia, Meganisi, Agios Nikitas, Sivota Vassiliki, Karya, Kalamitsi.

In addition to relaxing at your villa or enjoying the superb Lefkada beaches, visitors can enjoy several boat trips, walking, cycling, motor boat hire, scuba diving, sailing or just exploring at your own pace by hiring a car or boat. (Given the location of this villa so close to the bay We thoroughly recommend hiring a boat).
