Villa Meli in Lefkada island is a spacious (250sq.m.) traditional mansion, one of the vacation rental homes that really makes a difference. It is made exclusively from old local stone and wood. It is rented only as a whole and it is ideal for families or larger groups of friends. It features 3 spacious bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, extra wc and huge space in the sitting room so it can accommodate up to 10-12 people when children are included.
Officially recognized as apreserved building, it carries with it a history which dates back to the 19th century. More than that, Meli is steeped in sentiment, having been a home for the same family for over five generations.
Given the respect to the local traditional architecture, the attention to detail is evident in all the superbly-decorated interiors which combine rustic authenticity with all-modern amenities. Exposed beams, high ceilings, wooden floors, antiques, and unique wrought-iron beds give the mansion the character and feel of a genuinely refined and elegant country house. A large courtyard with an old walnut tree and a traditional wood burning oven, create exquisite sitting and dining areas with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.
“Meli”, owes its name to the Greek word for the produce which the hamlet is renowned for, that being “honey”. With just a few homes, one taverna providing home-made local delicacies and beautiful surroundings of fields and mountains, the village of Dragano offers a private escape to an uncommercialized and unspoilt region of Lefkas island. The village benefits from its privileged location, next to some of the most famous, long, sandy beaches in the Mediterranean such as Porto Katsiki, Egremni, Gialos and it is within 10 mins distance from numerous more beaches!
Meli offers an ideal proposition for those wishing to combine sailing, boating or windsurfing holidayswith staying in a truly original villa, enjoying the tranquility, calmness and relaxation of the environment.
