Overview

About the property

Beautiful waterfront private villa 5 bedroom, 5 bathroom gardens and sea views

Villa Helena is one of three beautifully finished villas on the island of Meganisi. Built on the North-West of the island amidst lush vegetation the location could not be more magnificent; the scenery and natural beauty of the villas are exceptional. The owners are a local family of Civil Engineers and Architects who with their flair for design have created elegant and chic homes. All three villas have been built with comfort and stylish Greek island design in mind; large, spacious and airy. Each villa has its own personal charm and the only thing that sets them apart are the views. The villas are just 50m from the waters’ edge, with our private beach accessed through a gate, just below the villas. Our private beach is sheltered by lovely olive trees, fir trees, myrtle and other indigenous flora and it is the perfect place to swim in the translucent waters of the coast or just relax on the beach and watch the boats sailing past. The beach is fine shingle and we will provide sun-mattresses for you to take to the beach if you wish.

Villa Helena has been carefully designed as a spacious and comfortable holiday home leaving guests feeling refreshed by its bright and airy design. The spacious and airy ground floor is open plan lounge – dining and kitchen area and is surrounded by large floor to ceiling windows allowing light and air to flood into the room. The lounge has the most wonderful garden and sea views. With space for all your guests around the large dining table and the huge comfy sofas set around the fireplace it is the perfect place to gather on cooler evenings. The modern kitchen leads directly off the dining area and is fully equipped with everything a comfortable home needs.

There is a second lounge on the upper floor which has its own balcony with gorgeous sea views. Villa Helena is just perfect for families as there is space for everyone to enjoy their holiday. The upper lounge is ideal for children or teenagers to enjoy their own space or for guests to take advantage of the peace and cool breeze away from the pool area.

The Master Bedroom with Queen Size bed, is on the ground floor with sea view through large French windows that lead directly out into the garden. The Master Bedroom has a walk in closet and en-suite shower room. On the upper floor there are one double bedroom with Queen size bed and en-suite shower room plus access to the rear side of the garden, one twin bedroom with single beds and en-suite shower room, one twin bedroom with single beds and en-suite shower room plus access to a balcony with panoramic sea views. There is a fifth bedroom on the ground floor which is private and has independent entrance; this bedroom is a double with Queen Size bed, en suite shower room and large French windows to the garden and sea view.

The well manicured gardens extend all the way around villa Helena and there is a choice of different seating areas to choose from depending on your mood. There is a large built BBQ for your use during your stay and comfy sofas around a beautiful wooden dining table for you to enjoy those mouth watering Mediterranean evening meals.

The private swimming pool runs the length of the garden at the front of the villa. The infinity effect is just gorgeous as when you swim you can enjoy the sea view with the horizon meeting the level of the pool water – bliss. The length of the pool is 12m and the width is 5m. There are plenty of sunbeds and tables and chairs to relax on in the garden around the pool which is shaded naturally by trees plus we provide a sun umbrella which can be moved around to suit.

Villa Helena, is shaded by mature trees, glorious wildflowers and fragrant herbs ensuring that guests have privacy whilst enjoying the superb views across the delightful satellite islands of Scorpios and Madouri and beyond to the sister island of Lefkada also known as Lefkas. The views are panoramic and exceptional with a number of seating areas around the pool, in the garden and on the balconies you will be lost for choice of where to enjoy the view from. Villa Helena is perfect for families, large parties or couples. Boasting our own private beach with small jetty to moor a motorboat, getting around the island, going shopping or exploring other beaches couldn’t be easier using a motorboat (we can arrange this for you locally) or the electric bicycles that we include. Should you prefer to bring your own yacht or hire one during your holiday you can easily drop anchor in the bay and row the short distance to the jetty. Visit Villa Helena for an unforgettably luxurious holiday on the undiscovered island of Meganisi.

Our local airport is Preveza (PVK) and the transfer to Meganisi takes approximately one hour and twenty minutes. There are a number of choices for your transfer; you can rent a car at the airport and drive to Lefkas where you catch a small car ferry across to Meganisi; you can hire a taxi to Lefkas and catch the ferry to Meganisi or even arrange a private transfer across. With our local knowledge and contacts we would be delighted to arrange your transfer for you. When you arrive, we will be waiting to show you in and will have a generous welcome hamper so there’s no need to worry about going out shopping – just immediately unwind and relax in the beautiful surroundings. Your Welcome Hamper includes fresh fruit, fresh salad items, locally baked bread, cheese, ham, jams, cakes and biscuits, orange juice, soft drinks, wine and water.

The island of Meganisi is lesser known as a holiday destination to a wider audience in comparison to neighbouring, Lefkada, Corfu, Paxos and Cephalonia. This, of course, has ensured that it has maintained much of its character and traditional Greek identity. There are plenty of attractions even for the more discerning traveller. The impressive green landscape offers many beautiful walks for all levels and there is a very good book that can be bought locally with tracks to follow. Just a ferry ride or short motorboat ride away is Lefkas (also known as Lefkada) with its long white beaches of the west coast, perfect for sun worshippers and family days out. Beautiful old churches dotted around the island, museums in Lefkas Town and archaeological sites close by are great for those looking for a bit of culture whilst on holiday. Lefkada also hosts one of the most famous International Folklore Festivals in Greece during the month of August.

Gorgeous villa in amazingly beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful week at Villa Helena. The villa sits on a stunningly beautiful hillside location (the views are incredible) and is very tastefully decorated throughout. It was comfortable and spacious enough for nine of us and the outside areas are fantastic - from the infinity pool to the two dining terraces, barbecue area, table tennis table and large lawn for the kids to play on.

Lilias could not have done more to make our stay as relaxing as possible. She thought of everything and nothing was too much trouble - whether that was helping out with the hire of our boat, arranging shopping to be delivered or just helping out with tips and places to visit on Meganisi and the surrounding areas. She also went to a lot of trouble to ensure that we got to the villa safely after a very long delay on our flight into Preveza - she rearranged all our transfers to ensure we didn't have to worry about anything and everything ran like clockwork.

We spent our days relaxing at the villa and exploring nearby beaches, caves (well worth a visit) and local tavernas by boat. This really is the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway, can't recommend it highly enough!

The most AMAZING villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at villa Mavra last year in September. Villa Mavra is truly a hidden gem, what a place! Everything was as described only better, this property really exceeded all our expectations. Very well maintained, spotlessly clean, fantastic views, beautiful swimming pool and gardens surrounding the villa. I cannot say enough about this place, it really is unbelievable. We rented a boat during our stay which we moored on the private jetty off the beach below the villa. This was just great as you can get around and don't even need to rent a car. We used the boat to pop across to Lefkas and to go out to dinner in the evenings. We also walked to Spilia a couple of times which was an easy 20 min walk. Lilias popped in to see us and gave us some great tips on things to do and see whilst on the island and she was always on hand to assist. Lilias organised our transfer across to the island; 45 min drive from the airport and a great 15 min speedboat ride across to Meganisi. Brilliant way to start our holiday! I would definitely recommend this villa for families or friends. We had an unforgettable holiday at villa Mavra.

paradise

  • 5 of 5

We , six women , stayed in villa Helena in Spartohori on Meganisi , the view from our villa was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we landed at prevasa airport ,everything was more than we could have hoped for. Lilias , the manager of Helena had handled all our requirements, such as transfers from airport ,boat form lefkas to Meganisi and our bikes and cars waiting at the other end for us' plus a lovely welcome pack , consisting of tea, coffee, milk bread , fruit etc . The villa was superb . The owner was staying in one of the three villas and was there to greet us and familiarise us with the property.

The island and people is so welcoming. We must recommend tavern Laski in Spartohori owned by a lovely Greek family , good food and atmosphere . Do get their son Andreas to take you island hoping in he's boat.We had a great day with him , we had lunch in Kefalonia after some shopping (which Andreas loved , managing to buy some shorts and tee-shirts for himself) He was great , he then took us to the most beautiful deserted beach for some swimming. We did a bit of walking and cycling , but it is quite hilly , I would recommend a car , it is such easy driving virtually no traffic

We would all love to return to such a beautiful place .
