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 the first of two stylishly furnished covered dining areas is served by a bbq 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.

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.

There is no better way to explore the coastline and discover deserted bays and coves with their translucent water to add to the overall enjoyment of your holiday. Small boats and speedboats can be pre-booked with our UK office prior to departure and we recommend early reservations, especially in July and August, as availability is limited. UK boat licences will no longer be valid in Europe from January 2021 due to Brexit. Smaller size boats can still be hired without a licence which remains unchanged.
