About the property

sleeps from 2 up to 14 guests in both villas

Elies villa (Katikia I & II) are built to high standard, finesse and style. Set on spacious grounds of approximately 7.000 sqm and surrounded by 53 olive trees of all ages, offering a luxury family home in peaceful surrounds, yet very close to Lefkas town and the island's beaches.

'Elies' transmits a positive aura and a relaxing, homely, peaceful feeling, that are detected almost immediately.

Sitting by the pool veranda and watching nature, your mind takes you to a journey in time, through the 300

year old grey, wrinkled trunk of the olive tree at the end of the pool, blending harmoniously with the blue of

the water and the sky! It then requires an effort to make your-self lifted and explore all that Lefkas, the nearby

islands and mainland have to offer. Time loses value, only made its presence aware because of the position of the sun, the moon and the color of the sky.

We are dreaming to stay again

  • 5 of 5

The first question the boys asked me was "Did you rent the whole hotel for us???"

Wonderful property, great hosts, perfect location. Words and pictures are not enough.

I highly recommend for big families and groups. Your children are going to love you more after this trip :)

Thank you Roula&Dennis. Hope to see you again.

With love from Istanbul

PS: When you visit Lefkada, don't try to rent a property near or very close to seaside. You will visit a new beach everyday.

Beautiful home for a wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful holiday spent at Elies Residence! From the moment our large party arrived we were made to feel right at home by our hosts Roula and Dennis.

We were welcomed with local food, fruit and drink in the fridge...much needed in the warm weather.

The property was exactly how it was pictured and we were very impressed with how clean and well furnished it was. All the facilities were very well maintained and appeared new.

The children and adults enjoyed the large outdoor spaces (seating for large groups, bbq, deck chairs) and the pool was a huge hit.

The hosts were a phone call away for any Enquiries and directed us to some wonderful beaches and restaurants, including shopping facilities nearby.

Despite our large number and kids there were so many places to hide away on a comfortable sofa to read a book or have some quiet time.

I would strongly recommend this property to all my friends and family and am looking forward to spending more time here in the future.

A beautiful holiday home on a gorgeous island.

We cannot thank Roula and Dennis enough for all their kind hospitality and helping us have a wonderful week away in Lefkada.

Amazing Vacations 👍

  • 5 of 5

We spent @Elies Residence 8 nights where we felt comfortable and relaxed. We were o group of 8 persons. The residence has everything necessary for special holidays. Stunning views , spacious relaxed verandas, modern style, very nice & clean pool and amazing olive trees.

It has a great location also near beautiful beaches, supermarkets , restaurants , villages of the island too .

Elies residence exceeded our expecrations with everything it has. The last but not the least Ms Roula and Dennis are very hospitable and nice persons.

I highly recommend Elies Residence , for everyone who want to spend holidays @lefkada.

Sincerely ,

I had a great stay at Elies Residence. The villas are comfortable and exceptionally beautiful. The location ideal, in a quiet olive grove, with awesome olive trees hundreds of years old, and great access to main roads towards every direction of the island. Last but not least, the owners are truly friendly and helpful. Surely I will be visiting again next year! AAA+!!!!!

Best host in my travelling history!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start? When I was looking for the perfect place for me and my family for the holidays, the Elies residence, Lefkada seemed like a good place for us. And I was right! Description of the villa is completely accurate, well maintained, clean, with all the necessary props, even more than you need, espresso machine, microwave, oven, stove, grill, pool, deck chairs, umbrellas, ...

The ovner of the villa Mrs.Raula is more then a good host, I would like to thank her once more for everything she did for us and for making our holidays unforgettable, her domestic olive oil is best we ever tasted.

I would recomend this property from the bottom of my heart, for young people, for children and for old people, all you need is car for the beautifull beaches of Lefkada, and of course for restaurants which there are many just 2 km from villa.

All the best for this villa
