About the property

Villa in Tsoukalades, Nr. Lefkada, Ionian Islands, Greece - Stunning Sea and Mountain Views, 700m From The Village

melivaro is a beautiful construction of wooden beams and local natural stone, with 2 double bedrooms (en-suite bathrooms) and 2 single-double bedrooms (sharing a common bathroom), a private swimming pool with a pool house, a barbecue area and terraces all around the house. Wooden floors, beams and pillars, hidden alcoves and rooms and a cellar add to its immense charm. A well-appointed kitchen with its enormous gas stove and all the necessary amenities complement the old style stone built cupboards and tops. Melivaro is a green option, producing power through a solar-powered system, and backed-up -if necessary- by mains electricity. With its warmth and simple charm you feel as relaxed as in a family home in this eco-friendly house!

About J NEVEU FOUROS

Our Greek Lefkadian-French family built this house as a tribute to traditional local architecture, using natural materials from the ground, and the skills we had inherited.

Why J NEVEU FOUROS chose Ionian Islands

We bought the land in 2001, having fallen in love with its location and views, secluded and yet close to everything. We started building it in 2002 with the arrival of our first child and achieved in 2006 with our 3rd.

We've been renting from 2007, enjoying very much what has now become our main activity.

We give all our attention to improve our offer from one year to another, and share the best experiences of rental with our guests.

What makes this villa unique

Ideal for 2-3 families or a group of friends, melivaro covers all holiday needs: activities with its direct access to sea and mountains sports (best wind, kitesurf and paraglidding spots), 10 to 40 minutes drive to the West coast's most famous beaches (Pefkoulia, Milos, Kathisma, Kalamitsi, Eggremni, Porto Katsiki,...) 10 min drive to town for its colorful narrow streets, museums, churches, theater, dance, concerts, exhibitions, shopping, or wanderings in the villages,... If you only want to rest: you'll enjoy the views from the shadowed terraces surrounding the house and the pool area. The atmosphere and the breathtaking scenery will relax you from the first moment, and the level of comfort will match all your expectations while leaving the smallest possible environmental footprint.

Come and share a unique experience, welcome to Lefkada and melivaro!
