Melivaro is an interesting ecological option in Lefkada: it produces its own power through a solar-powered system backed-up if necessary by the main electricity supply.
Environmental awareness and the understanding of renewable energy are paramount to help prevent future climate change. When looking to holiday, choosing an eco-friendly residence can be an important decision to make. With this in mind, melivaro is the perfect choice for any family or group! It has been beautifully constructed using wooden beams, local natural stone and ecologically friendly paints. The stone was taken from the ground during excavations of the foundations and handcrafted to construct the thick walls. The structure, using half-timber frame and half stone, follows the very old traditional Lefkadian style and is a superb achievement. The house has wooden floors, beams and pillars, hidden alcoves and rooms, and a cellar that adds to its charm.
GROUND FLOOR: Main entrance into an open plan living/dining area with a working fireplace, and 3 sets of French windows that open onto terrace and lawns, and a separate door onto a patio. A well-appointed kitchen with a big gas stove and all the cooking facilities:
FIRST FLOOR: 2 double bedrooms both with bathrooms with showers and French windows, one onto a balcony, and the other onto the rear terrace. 2 single bedrooms becoming double. 1 family bathroom with shower.
OUTSIDE: Steps down to a gently sloping lawn to a private infinity swimming pool. A roofed sitting area and a pool house with shower. A patio with a bread oven and B.B.Q, an outside dining area with patio furniture. Parking area. Panoramic sea views.
The gardens provide the guests during their stay with different aromatic herbs (oregano, mint, thyme, rosemary, parsley,...) and fruits (lemons, strawberries, and grapes). The house has natural air conditioning. The regular breezes in this area of low altitude and the stone construction suffice to keep a cool temperature.
