Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa exceeded the description details and our expectations and was in an ideal location, secluded enough to be quiet but close to local ammenities. It was maintained to a very high standard and equipped with everything you could possibly need on holiday. We enjoyed excellent service from the owners who we were fortunate enough to meet personally whilst there. We really enjoyed the garden and pool which had stunning views over the bay.

Our only regret is that we only stayed for a week and our granddaughter (4) is already planning a return trip. We can definitely see ourselves returning. Do not be fooled by thinking the description is too good to be true - it really is that good. Highly recommended.

Beautiful villa in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we booked the villa, the owners were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They arranged airport transfers for us and even transport to our next destination and their brother Zois was on hand to help us with luggage and anything else we needed.The villa is set in a stunning, private location overlooking the bay which is beautiful and is only a few minutes walk down to the beach, takes a bit longer walking back after eating lots of food and walking uphill though! The villa is really well equipped - we travelled with a 6, 7 and two 15 year olds and it was perfect for all our needs with lots of outside space, plenty of games for entertaining, and spacious inside too. The villa was modern and immaculatey clean . We can't recommend this villa and it's location enough- we didn't have a car which wasn't an issue as we chilled out for the whole week, the restaurants and mini markets are all within a few minutes on the bay and it was all we needed, perfect!

Fantastic place, nice location, great villa

  • 5 of 5

Went with a family of four, 3 and 6 year old children. Kind owners and caretakers of the house, fantastic quiet location, but not too far from the sea (4mins walk), mini supermarket (8mins walk) and several restaurants, all in walking distance (also with small children). Villa well equipped with everything you need. And the pool, really nice refreshment several times a day. - we had a great holiday!

If you are looking at this villa......book it now!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed twice in this amazing villa, in 2015 and 2016. First of all the Island is beautiful and everyone is so friendly. It is easy to drive to from the airport and you are always met by the lovely Zois who takes you up to the villa, explains everything and helps you settle in. Zois is always available if you have any queries. The villa is everything it promises and more, fantastic views, beautiful inside and outside. It has every facility you need/want and is so close to the beach and small local shop and bakery. There are some wonderful tavernas in the area serving reasonably priced and beautiful meals.

The owners make the booking process very easy and are always happy to help you with car hire if required.

I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, we will be returning.

Fantastic family holiday, would recommend to all!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start!

There's no better place to stay on the idyllic island of Lefkada than this beautiful holiday home. The villa itself is clean, well maintained and very spacious with wonderful views of the beach and clear blue sea. My children loved playing in the pool and with a supermarket a short drive away we loved having family BBQ's whilst watching the sun set over the mountains. The communication from Kate and Lefteris (Owners) was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. I would not hesitate to book again in the future and hoping to stay again this year.

Elegant villa, unique location and fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted that the villa is as lovely as the photos and owners descriptions.

We usually ask ourselves at the end of our stay, would we come to this location again and would we stay in the same place.

We said yes to both these questions at the end of our 1st day.

If you want a private location, with a decent selection of restaurants but something thats authentic and not commercial, stay here.

We will be staying again, more than once.

Special Holidays at Villa Gaia

  • 5 of 5

We had a very special holiday (14 days) at Villa Gaia!

Staying as family with two small children (1 and 5), we even had everything we need for a nice time. The Villa is great and well-maintained. The location of the villa is very good: no immediate neighbours, no noise and all that just a 5 minute walk to the beach on your own private path.

The beach area is small and friendly, the sunloungers were in this time for free becuase of wery friendly restaurant owner.

The water in the bay is one of the clearest on the island, this we have determinated during our stay and visiting a lot of other places inclusive west coast.

Lefteris and Kate were so helpful throughout the booking process and called us as we was on the island to navigate us to the villa, although we were earlier than necessary. Our special thanks goes to Lefteris' brother Zois who was around to introduce to the Villa and help with any questions (free use of a motorboat for 1 day to explore the nearby islands!)

All in all we had a very nice holiday - it is a great Villa in a beautiful location, with a small friendly village within walking distance, everything perfect for a low key relaxing holiday. Thank you Lefteris and Kate.

Villa Gaia is located in Mikros Gialos, a small sea resort, close to the village of Poros, in the south-east coast of the island of Lefkada (Lefkas) and one of the most beautiful and tranquil villages. Lefkada is one of the seven Ionian Islands located off the west coast of mainland Greece and lies between the islands of Corfu and Kefalonia.

It's a beautiful, fertile island with some superb beaches, an imposing mountainous interior and verdant valleys carpeted with vineyards, olive groves and cotton fields.

Mikros Gialos is a tranquil little village set around Rouda bay. Rouda beach is a beautiful pebbly beach with crystal clear azure waters. There are only a few hotels and apartments in the area, making this an ideal location for relaxing holidays. In addition to a few restaurants and traditional tavernas, there are a couple of mini-markets that can provide a lot of essential items without having to travel to a bigger town.
