We take vacations seriously and as a pause from the anxious normality and the crowed streets. If you are agree with this latter view, well you may have already found your ideal location. This 50m2 fully renovated home with swimming pool at traditional Teacher's house at Meganisi island is waiting to be your ideal center point for your summer vacations. Equipped with all amenities a contemporary flat should provide. My place is ideal for couples, travelers or families.
The Teacher’s House is a 1850s mansion restored with a modern touch. It is located in the heart of Spartochori village in Meganissi Island. A beautiful, traditional village that will charm you at first glance. It is built at the edge of a spectacular rock just opposite the legendary island of Onassis, Scorpio.
Up to 10 years ago, Meganissi was not known to many people. This is why now the thousands of visitors call it the hidden paradise of the Ionian Sea.
The guesthouse was the home of the village teacher. It was built almost two centuries ago, in the late 19th century and for many years was the reference point of the village. It was the center of social life since it was there that all personages of the time visiting the island were accommodated.
The teacher’s grandchildren restored it into a guesthouse that combines luxury with tradition. It offers a swimming pool - jacuzzi, modern bathrooms, comfortable beds, atmospheric exteriors, a terrace with a pergola, restored furniture - unique pieces constructed by local craftsmen. The result is impressive.
The famous traditional tavern of Lakis offering great food, the Pizzerias of Spiro and George, the Grill house of Dimitri and Peter’s cafe overlooking the Ionian sea are at walking distance.
Cars are prohibited within the cobblestone streets of the village but parking spaces located at the three entrances of the villages are available and only a 5 minutes’ walk from the guesthouse. If you want to swim in the sea without using your car, Spilia beach is a 15 minutes’ walk down a scenic path with a magnificent view. You can visit all other beaches of the island by car in 5-10 minutes’ drive.
There is no airport on Meganissi so you arrive via car ferry or water taxi from Lefkas - Nidri after a flight to Preveza/Aktion Airport on mainland Greece. Aktion is an international airport connected directly to many European cities.
Meganissi is well served by daily ferry services. The ferry takes vehicles of any size and the journey time is nearer 40 minutes. Water taxi needs to be booked in advance.
The distance from the airport to the capital of Lefkas (Lefkada town) is 15km while the journey from the airport to Nidri harbor takes approximately one hour by taxi or rental car. There is a daily bus service between Preveza airport and Lefkada Town and Lefkada Town to Nidri.
Alternatively, if your trip starts from Athens, Lefkas can be reached by bus or car since the island is connected to the mainland with a small bridge.
