About the property

Meganisi Luxury Selection

Meganisi Luxury Selection consists 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 covering and area of 250 square metres. Each villa has its own personal charm and the only thing that sets them apart are the views. Meganisi Luxury Selection 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.

The villas themselves, Villa Helena, Villa Eugenia and Villa Mavra are 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 from all three villas 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. Meganisi Luxury Selection 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 with all villas. 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 Meganisi Luxury Selection 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 at your chosen villa, 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 when you arrive – 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.

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.

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 .
