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..

Beautiful villa in walking distance of Mikros Gialos bay on Lefkada 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).

A little slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

Eight friends left their homes in Kent and headed for Gatwick excited and looking forward to a week of peace and tranquillity at Villa Mikros to escape the hustle and bustle of of everyday life. On arrival we met Adam (the owner's son) in the local supermarket and after a quick gathering of supplies followed him to the Villa which was down a long bumpy unmade road. When we arrived and offloaded our cases, it soon became apparent that we were not going to want to go home. Two eighteen year old boys, one 12 and one 9 year old headed straight for the pool with their jaws dragging along the floor. We will struggle to find anywhere that has such a large and perfectly positioned pool. To swim to the far side and just absorb the sheer beauty of what was in front of you was for us time well spent. We could just feel the stresses and strains of everyday life just melt away. There is nothing that grates on the eye and we just found ourselves drawn into watching the ever changing boats coming in and out of the bay. We only sampled one Taverna in the local village but there are many to chose from and all equally as good and we found all the locals to be very friendly and helpful. We found the walk back up to the Villa a little challenging on the first night but given the fact that we had had a very early start that day and the wine had gone to our heads it was no surprise. Later on in the week the same walk didn't appear half as difficult ! The villa itself is spotlessly clean and there was ample room for all of us both indoors and out. The bedrooms were of equally good size and all had spectacular views. The lounge was very light and airy although to be honest, we didn't use the lounge as we were outside most of the time. Adam was always at the end of the phone and was more than willing to talk about the local area and answer any questions we had. We went into Nidri a couple of evenings which is only 20 minutes up the road but a little more lively and it is worth going just to see all the boats moored up. There are lots of Tavernas here and it is a good place to hire a boat from for the day.

All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Mikros and would dearly love to return one time in the future. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this Villa to anyone, just don't think about it for too long as it gets booked up as we found out the year before we went.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Well what can we say apart from Amazing !!

This villa has it all. Its gorgeous has the best views and the pool is out of this world. Its clean , well maintained and the support we had from both Adam and James who were based close by was well recieved.

There are lots of local restaurants and a few bars close by in the bay and the neighbouring harbour of Sivota is only a fifteen min drive away.

Definatly arrange yourself a car during your stay and you wont be dissapointed as there is so much to see close by. Deserted beaches to explore, boats to hire and a winery to tour all within a short drive.

Thank you for a perfect holiday.

We are already considering another visit next year.

Matt , Charlotte ,Lewis & Beth

Wow!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This really is the most amazing villa with breathtaking views over the bay, which is so unspoilt and picturesque, it really is just perfect. Everything was very high quality and spotless, and the huge infinity pool was simply stunning. We were met by Neil (the owner) who provided us with useful information about the area, and places to visit along with restaurant recommendations, all of which were excellent - thanks Neil. Its just a 10 minute walk down the hill to a lovely clean beach, and also a well stocked supermarket which we found very handy. The local restaurants around the bay were fantastic too - Zolithros was our favourite. We would definitely recommend a stay here - you won't be disappointed.

So good we came back a second time!

  • 5 of 5

Huge infinity pool looking over the inky blue sea and hills, plenty of room for everyone in the well designed, spacious and spotless villa, the scent of wild rosemary growing on the hillside, a quiet pretty beach you could walk to with a generous sprinkling of Tavernas , including a great fish one and to top it all, beautiful weather. What's not to like!!! The best thing about Villa Mikros though is the wonderful service from John (Booking) right through to Adam the owners son who looked after us and the pool during our stay and helped make our stay even more pleasant. Go, you won't regret it...it was so good we came back again!

Stunning, Relaxing, Immaculate, Luxurious, Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Having seen the photos of the villa my family and I fell in love with the property immediately. We contacted John who was helpful throughout the process and could not have made it easier. He is such a professional individual and a great help with all aspects of the booking. He maintained contact throughout the booking so we knew exactly where we stood at all times - thank you John! I also spoke to Neil (the owner) and again he could not have done more for us – email contact, all of our requests met, confirmations when promised – thank you Neil. Having booked the property our expectations grew by the day, we were not disappointed!

As many have said before me, the photos do not do the property and area justice - it really is out of this world and it felt such a privilege to be staying there and waking up to 'that' view every morning. The villa is simply incredible and has everything that you could ever require. The layout of the villa works so well and you can see the level of planning that has gone into this to ensure that their guests comfort is paramount at all times. The pool is amazing, large, warm, clean (thanks James - I'll come to you later), the outside area perfect, sun all day, shade to dine, seats to watch the sun go down over the mountains, I could go on and on..

The villa itself is comfortable, spacious and immaculate and James (the owners Son who maintains their properties) was brilliant. He met us at the airport and showed us back to the area and explained everything about the villa and the lovely Mikros Gailos. He came twice a week to clean the pool and could not have been more helpful with any request or information that we required. A really nice guy as well, we enjoyed many a coffee whilst he was working away! He met us on the morning of our unwanted departure and accompanied us to the airport where he made sure that the hire car was returned to the right place and took us into the airport to make sure that we knew exactly where we were going – thank you again James!

I would thoroughly recommend this property and the village. The people are so friendly! There are some fantastic restaurants serving local cuisine. The beach & sea beautiful and clean. We hired a boat from NIdri, a great way to see other islands and pop into tavernas for a quick beer.

Thanks John, Neil, James and the people of Lefkada for ensuring that our holiday was one that we will never forget and one that we will hopefully repeat very soon!

Great villa with an excellent pool and views. We stayed here for a week with our family, the kids particularly liked the huge and nicely shaped pool from which one has great infinity views of the bay. House is in great shape and the owners are helpfull.
