Ploes Villas comprises of 3 fully independent villas on a lush hillside mediterranean garden with a majestic view of the Ionian Sea, Zante and Kefalonia islands and right above the sandy Leventochori beach. Amazing sunsets meet total relaxation in an atmosphere of natural serenity and peace, day and night.
All villas meet the standards of and are officially licensed by the Greek National Tourism Organization (EOT) - License No.: 0415K91000454601.
Each villa measures 67 m2, accommodates 4 persons and includes 2 bedrooms, one with a queen size double bed (1.60x2.00m) and one with 2 single beds (0.90x2.00m), a bathroom with shower, a spacious living room unified with a well equipped kitchen as well as front and back outdoor terraces with pergolas. Single beds can be joined seamlessly to form a king size double bed (1.80x2.00m) upon request, thus accommodating a two couple stay.
Each kitchen is equipped with refridgerator, compact kitchen/oven, small electric chopper, toast maker, electric juicer, filter coffee maker, electric kettle and adequate flatware, glassware and dinnerware.
Living rooms have a fireplace and a 32'' flatpane LG LED TV, with USB and HDMI connectivity.
Each bedroom and living room are equipped with their own, separate A/C unit.
Interior spaces have been kept as simple and open as possible, and decorated with discreet but playful handmade objects, complemented with a light, modern touch in furniture.
The main space (living room & kitchen) is connected to the ample front terrace where you can enjoy a panoramic sea view, mesmerizing sunsets and candle-lit dinners, while both bedrooms are adjacent to the back terrace, ideal for afternoon book reading or coffee. Front terraces are equipped with a cozy sunbed that used to travel the world on board of a cruise ship, a large wooden table and 4 chairs.
Surrounding the 3 villas is a shared, common green open space, meticulously taken care of, planted with fragrant mediterranean herbs and fruit trees and covered with soft green grass, ideal for a children's playground.
Access to Leventochori beach is only 2 min. on foot through a downhill path (which might be a mild but worthwhile uphill exercise when returning from the beach).
The villas are fully independent, each one with its own main entrance, private terraces and facilities. The spacious surrounding space (garden & lawn) is shared, common and plenty for all visitors, as is access to the beach. The beach below the villas is shared with a small and quiet hotel and almost half of its length is unoccupied, free space. You will find it to be a very peaceful and uncrowded place.

Villas have beautiful views, lovely landscaped grounds and fantastic beach. They are modern, clean with pleasant design and architecture. There is great attention to detail and decoration. Everything is new, clean and well maintained. Place is quiet and guarantees relaxation.
The hosts, Panos and Eftihia, are wonderful. We were greeted with a bottle of very nice Greek wine, bottle of olive oil from their own olive grove and orange marmalade homemade by Eftihia! Panos and Eftihia are among the most memorable people we have met. They are totally dedicated to guests’ comfort. They are efficient, helpful, and professional. But, above and beyond, they are genuine and warm. After our stay, we are honored to now count them among our friends. We will definitely return.
The Villas are a perfect location to explore the western part of Peloponnese. Wi-fi and Air conditioning worked well.
The sandy beach is accessed by a short well maintained, not too steep, trail. There are lounge chairs available at no charge and the water is shallow and safe to swim in. The beach is shared by one other small resort so you basically have a private beach. There are restaurants close by in a small village and Port of Katalona. Pick up some basics on your way to the Villas, since there is a well appointed kitchen.

We stayed for one week early mai 2016 in one of the 3 villas. The house was clean, convenient and well equipped with everything in detail you might need. The location was peacful with an impressive free front seavieuw from the terrace of our house. Panos and his wife Efichia, living on the compound are very friendly and helpfull in case you need. If you drive your own car with GPS put Skafidia BEACH in it.Short before the end of the road (gowing down to the beach) you find on your left hand an unpaved road to the location Ploes villas a signed there. Or take care you have the telnr of Panos to help you for routing if you need so. If you like to take the dinner at a nice site: go to Katakole, where the cruises arrive and go.
We want to say once again thank you to Panos and Efichia for the great time we had!
