Meli traditional house is a spacious 3-bedroom villa, full of character and charm, stylishly decorated with antique pieces. This is an experience of authentic Greek living in a quiet setting close to nature but also only 5-10 mins away from the best beaches of the island.
It is uniquely located within a quiet village in southwest Lefkas, only a breath away from about eight different beaches, some of which are world-famous (e.g. Porto Katsiki in 15kms, Egremni in 6kms, Gialos in 5kms). In fact, Meli is one of the few vacation rentals so close to Egremni beach which was voted as Greece's BEST beach and World's TOP 24th in a survey conducted by CNN in May 2013.
Exposed beams, high ceilings, wooden floors, antiques, and wrought-iron beds give it the feel of a genuinely refined and elegant country house which offers all modern amenities, including a wonderful large barbeque area.
The property is 250sq.m. split into two storeys. As you enter the villa you reach the upper floor which features 3 bedrooms (two with queen-size double beds 1,60 x 2,00 and one with two single beds 1 x 2 each), all with en suite bathrooms (one with jacuzzi bathtub). All rooms are located on the upper floor and have satellite TV, designer mattresses (Mediastrom), hairdryer, designer face & body treatment items, safety box, small fridge. A large wooden staircase leads down to an open plan living room with fireplace and two sofa beds 0.90 x 2 each (which could accommodate 2 people), an additional WC, desk area, dining area, fully equipped rustic kitchen. Outdoors at the lower floor, there is garden seating, large barbecue, wood burning oven and wonderful countryside/field/vineyard/olive groves views.
Complimentary WiFi internet access and 4 mountain bikes all year-round, wood during winter (for the woodburning oven & the fireplace) .
Our villa can accommodate up to 10-12 guests (if children included).
Historic 3-bed villa, 3.5 bath, 4-12 persons, luxury, fully equipped, family-friendly, free WiFi, exotic sandy beaches in just 5 mins, Vasiliki amenities, port & watersports paradise in just 10 mins.

This was one of the most beautiful places we have ever lived in. It was great to leave everything behind and spend some quiet days in such an amazing place. Thank you for your hospitality! Hopefully we will be back in the future. Iossif, Bucharest, Romania, July 2012
This house is magnificent! We were here for our honeymoon and found the island and the Meli house to be the perfect relaxing, romantic setting. We enjoyed cooking meals in the kitchen and the wood-burning oven, relaxing in your beautiful garden, and taking the bikes out for a scenic ride. Thank you most of all for your incredible hospitality - for your suggestions of which beaches to go to, the amazing Rachi restaurant and the fun winery tour. We wish you the best of luck and continued success with your business - we would recommend it in a heartbeat! Cheers, Jen & Ben, USA, September 2011
Dear Elena & Argie, Thank you for your hospitality and help during our vacations. The house is lovely and was equipped with everything we could want and more. We loved the peace and quiet and the mornings in the garden, with the flowers and the mountain view. The beaches on Lefkada are great, we especially liked Afteli which was so secluded and small. You really provided us with everything to make our stay special. Shlomit, Tel Aviv, Israel, August 2011
Thank you dear Elena and family for this little corner of paradise rhis beautiful "Meli" house is. The house is a dream and have enjoyed it to its fullest! We will certainly want to come back!

What a very beautiful house "Meli" is. We have all had the most lovely holiday here.Every detail of the house has been paid attention to.. nothing left aside. We shall most certainly recommend to our friends and family! Sally, London, UK (July 2011)
Thank you very much for your hospitality. We loved everything about your house, great style, authenticity, beautiful garden, nice area. Unfortunately, the weather was a bit disappointing but that gives us all the more reason to come back again to enjoy the beaches to their fullest potential. We also enjoyed biking the path you described, good exercise! We'll meet again! P.S. I almost forgot to mention for people who read this: we used the oven outside to make pizza, amazing!

A lovely stay, very relaxing, great location for the breathtaking beaches. Great food at the nearby tavernas. In all a great holiday. Would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Elena & family. Geof, Pauline, Wallace, Emily, Harvey & Brianna - London - UK, June 2010
It is a privilege to stay in such a beautiful house and feel the past in a village so far from everything and so close to one of the most scenic beaches in the world! Perfect vacation! Igor, Slovenia, June 2010
We had a fantastic week swimming in the turqoise sea, building castles with the white stones, eating fish and greek salad, and drinking Mythos. We are all brown and relaxed. This house was the most perfect place to wake up in and come back to at the end of the day. Thank you. Jess, James & Kids - London - UK, June 2010
Giorno di partenza. L'unico "brutto" di una meravigliosa permanenza. Siamo stati colpiti dalla bellezza e dall' incanto di questa isola e, soprattutto, della vostra calda accoglienza. Non é mai facile pronosticare un ritorno. La nostra vita non é detto che ce lo permetta. Sicuramente porteremo nel nostro cuore il ricordo di questa vacanza in "casa Meli". Ciao a tutti.Mateo & Monica, Sabina & Gianni, Italy, 27/8/2009
Je retrouve la Grèce de mes souvenirs (il y a 30 ans!)..., l' appel desespéré de l' âne au petit matin, le chaut omniprésent des cigales, le bouzouki au coeur de la unit le corps et visage usé des veuves, les petits monastères perdus dans les oliviers.. le charme de votre maison si bien conçue, si accueillante, si confortable. Merci pour les moments de pérénité. Elizabeth, Switzerland, 2/8/2009
Wonderful place also for children, To be rent for at least a week. One advice: kitchen should be used (even though there are so nice tavernas around..). Cristine & Stefano, Italy, 19/7/2009
Thank you very much for the wonderful stay at this beautiful and peaceful place. We enjoyed exploring the island, spending time at the beautiful beaches and coming back to MELI and feel home. You have created a wonderful place - All the best for the future. Denise & Silvio, Switzerland, 2/7/2009
