There is some magic around the place which is authentically Greek and old, modern and cosy at the same time. The location is great, far from the noise and fuss of regular tourist destinations. The house is clean, spacious and well-decorated. The garden is magnificent, with the most remarkable roses I have ever seen in a private house. Perfect place... More

Difficult to believe that such a wonderful estate exists amidst such a beautiful and unspoiled landscape. If you want seclusion and down-to-earth environment with all the luxuries, this is the place. Comfortable and refined living quarters in the middle of rural and quiet small towns, far from the buzz of modern world. A truly wonderful place to feel at home... More

The villa is situated in a small village in the mountains and location is perfect if you go with a group of friends and rent the entire villa, as you can use the small and very nice yard with all the facilities during the evenings. The villa looks very nice and has everything you need. Unless you really want a... More

Villa Meli is everything you need to escape from the stress of everyday life. In fact, the actual feel of the house is, in a magic way, that of your own home! Only, without any stress and with a clear head! When you sit outside in the garden, you feel nature in all its greatness… the views of the fields,... More

This is a great mansion in a very touristy island. Most properties we visited had no personality, they were basically geared to commercial mass tourism. This is a real stone mansion built at least 250 years ago, fastidiously renovated a few years ago. It is a combination of old tradition and modern amenities. Beautiful antique furniture and satelite internet.... .Lefkada,... More

The best place I ever stayed. The house and the garden are wonderful. You find everything in the house (from bikes to local delicatessen), the owner and the cleaning lady are lovely and you would like to stay in Villa Meli forever.

Meli is exactly what you see on the website photos, and better. An old traditional village house completely revamped in 2007 in great style, which offers absolute peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of the island's more touristic spots. We stayed at Rodia room (best), which was a very large bedroom with a spacious bathroom and tasteful... More

Meli is a unique 150-year old stone mansion, full of character and charm, recently restored to high standards and stylishly decorated. It is ideally located in the peaceful village of Dragano, within easy reach of the BEST beaches of Lefkas island (some of which have been voted as best in Greece or even the world!) And just 12kms from Vasiliki, the cosmopolitan capital of the south part of the island. Meli villa features 3-bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. It is very spacious (250 sq.M.) And fully equipped, combining comfort and relaxation with stylish traditional luxurious living. Meli has accommodated both parties of couples and families, whereas it offers quite a few facilities for babies and toddlers (please enquire). You may combine your stay with several activities, such as sailing, windsurfing, diving, walking, mountain biking, swimming, snorkeling etc or use it as a yoga retreat (details upon request). Usual occupancy is 2-8 guests but we may accommodate up to 11-12 if children are included. ... more   less
