About the villa

The beautiful Villa Melina was fully renovated inside and out for the 2018 season and repeat and new guests alike were blown away by the villa’s luxurious and contemporary interiors and smart exteriors. Perfectly positioned on the exclusive hillside above St. Stephano, Villa Melina basks in a beautifully natural setting, with terraces paved and tiered into the rocks, and surrounded by olive trees and flowering shrubs. A comfortable shaded seating area with new seating and a retractable awning bridges the gap between the house and its infinity pool and a stylishly furnished dining pergola is draped in abundant wisteria and served by a barbecue built into the rock. The infinity pool has spectacular views down to the bay of St Stephano and a new shaded dining area has now been added behind the pool to enjoy the views when dining al fresco.

Inside, the villa has been thoughtfully renovated and redecorated in sophisticated creams, greys and blues. The cool colour palette complements the contemporary styling and the airy open-plan living space, which encompasses a new spacious modern kitchen, dining and seating areas. Also on the ground floor are a double bedroom with new en suite walk in shower room, and a twin bedroom with en suite walk in shower room (also with a door opening to the pool area). Upstairs the master bedroom opens to a large terrace with seating area and far reaching views to the sea and St Stephano, and the new en suite comprises a walk in shower and separate bath. Water sports, nightlife and restaurants are all within easy reach in the cluster of nearby villages.

Important Information


Please note that pool heating will usually bring the water temperature up to approximately 10 degrees higher than the night time temperature. As such in early or late season if the nights time temperatures are low, guests may still find the pool feels cold despite heating.

Please note the use of P20 sun cream is banned in Villa Melina as this particular brand can cause very bad staining on sheets, towels, sunbeds and the villa is newly furnished. The owners of the villa therefore ask that guests do not bring P20 sun cream with them on holiday and do not use it inside the villa or in any of the outside areas.

About the area

St Stephano

Average weather

As you navigate the winding hill dotted with olive trees and beehives, St Stephano glimpsed far below looks every bit the archetypal Greek fishing village. Lining a horseshoe-shaped bay facing the Albanian mountains, it is a scattering of houses, a succession of tavernas, and a series of jetties, all set in a wooded amphitheatre dotted with elegant villas and cypress trees. It is striking, yet still has working fishing boats; a St Stephano holiday is a retreat of simple pleasures.
