Genuinely Greek, cosy and comfortable! 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 for families with children. And, most importantly, the hosts are extremely hospitable, warm and responsive to the guests needs.

The house itself is so remarkable so it made our holiday even more memorable. It is comfortable, charming, cosy and completed even in small details. The location is very strategic for best beaches. The place is wonderful for calm, relaxing holiday, for nature lovers and retreat.

This large, old house is impeccably renovated and furnished in rustic, chic style using local materials and charming furnishings. The house could be featured in Cote Sud. The garden is also lovely, overlooking a valley, which gives a palatial feel, though its not that large. Immaculate. Well furnished kitchen. Also stone barbecue outside. All the mod cons. The owners charming father showed us around and pointed out the places to go on the map. There was a cleaning mid-week. The village has a nice little taverna, otherwise nothing else except honey stands and fig trees but its not a far drive from some spectacular beaches. We did shopping in Vassiliki and Agios Petros. No pool, but all the more incentive to get out and explore. Would absolutely recommend this beautiful house to anyone. We were two parents and three teens and had no shortage of space.
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! We love the simplicity of this island and the friendliness and generocity of its people. We could not bear to leave!! Karen & Marco, Zurich, Switzerland, July 2011
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
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
