Overview

Apollonii Villa Rental Photos and Description

Secluded, Magnificent views, Each villa 4500 sqm land, Platform at Seacoast

In a stunning location just a few metres above the sea there is Villa Lefkada with two villa's each located on 4,500 sqm. The style is modern, contemporary making the most of the light and views surrounding them. The views are incredible; every room of the villa' looking out to the same breathtaking vista, whilst the owners have made comfort a priority. Every room benefits from air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped, with such an idyllic balcony to dine on, eating in will be a more than one off occurrence, despite the fact that the area boasts wonderful fish restaurants and taverns. The villa has a gorgeous swimming pool placed strategically in a 200 sqm terrace to benefit from the fantastic sea views, whilst still being private amongst the olive groves that surround the villas. Outdoor furniture is available. There is a wooden platform at the seacoast for exclusive use of Villa Lefkada to provide ultimate relaxation.

The island of Lefkada (Lefkas) is part of the Ionian Island group lying off the west coast of Greece. Lefkada is linked to the mainland by a causeway and the airport of Aktio (Preveza) on the mainland is about 25 kms from Lefkas Town. Our villas are located in an area of outstanding natural beauty where traditional life still prevails.

Lefkada combines thickly forested mountains, lush valleys and paradise beaches. From every corner of the island, you glimpse views that will stun you into silence. Despite all this, Lefkada for the most part, is not overly developed and attracts a more upmarket holidaymaker.

Lefkada has some of the best beaches in the whole of Greece. Long stretches of white sand, surrounded by impressive vertical cliffs and sea that is so turquoise that it is almost unreal.

Lefkada of Sports: The advantages of the natural environment and the weather conditions of Lefkada favour an alternative kind of vacation. The safe sea and the several small islands with natural resorts on the eastside of the island offer ideal conditions for sailing, while the modern facilities for anchorage make the place ideal. Diving, sailing and windsurfing are available at the watersportcentres in Nydri, Vasiliki and Ai Yiannis in the city of Lefkada

Authentic Lefkada: Calm and charming from the first moment with the true, genuine, warm Lefkadian smile, it welcomes those who have chosen Lefkada for their destination. Tradition and development go hand in hand, and visitors enjoy the hospitality, entertainment and adventure.

Lefkada, the best choice for your holiday... : A short visit was all that was needed for Aristotle Onassis to find himself in love with Lefkada. He bought the island Scorpios opposite of Nydri, and there he created his personal paradise, which he enjoyed with the Kennedy family, Maria Callas, Churchill and other celebrities. For the same reasons and all that you can discover yourself we have decided to build our villas on Lefkada, the island that enchants...

Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa marcelina for 12 days in May 09 for our wedding. The Villa was beautiful, even better than the pictures, and the view breathtaking. We were 8 people staying, and it was far from crowded. There was plenty of space by the pool and each bedroom had it's own big bathroom.

The nearest village, Sivota, had a couple of really nice tavernas with excellent food. Nidri is only 15 minutes away in a car if you fancy a night out.

We were all really impressed and would definetly like to come back for another stay!

OUR PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

This was our ( we are 3 generations in the party ) fourth visit to Villa's and our experience was as good as ever. It is qiute the most beautiful and tranquill location and the Villa's are perfectly located and designed to provide a most relaxing and peaceful holiday. Although there are many good tavernas in Sevota it is difficult to beat the enjoyment of BBQ'ing in the Villa and sitting out the Balcony enjoying the evening , food and local wine.

Please don't tell too many people about this place, we do not want it spoiled!

beautiful lefkas

  • 5 of 5

well-done, charme, modern kitchen, good A/C. The villa is good for 8 person, the other room with wash machine was without bed and A/C. the view is "fantastica" and the pool too. Same problems with the road to villa, and with the street to sea (very difficult!!!).

Review of Villa Marcelina

  • 5 of 5

We all had the most amazing holiday in Villa Marcelina - the views were spectacular, particularly from the infinity pool. The villa was incredibly comfortable and only about a mile from the pretty fishing village of Sivota where there are numerous excellent and reasonably priced restaurants. One of the reasons for chosing Villa Marcelina was that it is only about 8 miles from the famous windsurfing/sailing resort of Vasiliki where it is easy to hire boards/dinghys or book lessons. We would definitely recommend it to friends or come back again ourselves.

A perfect home-away-from-home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa in July '10 and really enjoyed it. The views from the villa are amazing, and it is so peaceful and quiet. The villa was well laid out with everything we needed - fridge, dishwasher, tv etc.

The top floor bedrooms and lower floor studio are accessible via an outdoor staircase, so give some extra privacy to those occupants, but perhaps not ideal if you want a large family to be together. The pool was gorgeous, sunny in the morning but nice and shady in the afternoon. The path down to the sea platform was well built, and not too hard-going on the way up!

The villas are about 10 minutes drive on a dirt road from the village of Sivota, with mini markets and great tavernas.

The caretakers were very nice and helpful.

We would love to stay at the villa again and would recommend it as a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: The road from Sivota to our villa is for one kilometer asphalted and the last kilometer is a dirt road that can easily be driven with any normal car. The two top floor bedrooms can be connected and can be perfectly used by parents with smaller children

Villa Marcelina

  • 5 of 5

We rented this villa in June 2008 with four friends. The six of us who stayed there have rented many villas throughout the Mediterranean area in the past but none could match Marcelina for the fabulous view, the quality of the furnishings and equipment or the attentiveness of the local hosts Marino and Beate. We thought that the small harbour area of Sivota with its numerous tavernas, bars and small supermarkets was delightful. The swimming platform was a real bonus but for those preferring easier access to the sea, the beach at Mikros Gialos is reasonably close as is the larger town of Vasiliki which has its own beach and a wider variety of shops and places to eat and drink. The 2 km unsurfaced road from Sivota is a bit bumpy but one quickly comes to accept this as a small price to pay for access to such a stunning location.

We hope to visit again and have no hesitation in recommending this villa to friends and family.

The Island of Lefkas has always amidst discussion as to whether or not it really is an island, as only joined by a causeway to the mainland. Ironically enough, once actually there, you feel more the pace and the authenticity of island life than many of the more popular island destinations. ‘Traditional’ is a word that is widely used to describe Lefkas, although a trip to the villages will ensure spying at least a few donkeys carrying firewood, elderly ladies in traditional dress carrying baskets on their heads and traditional working villages, you actually don’t have to go very far to see such sights. Lefkas boasts not only some of the best beaches in Europe, Porto Katsiki and Agiofillis, it also has wonderful little coves and crystal clear waters to choose from. Scorpios is just one of the little islands that gather around the bay, notorious for its schools of dolphins. In the morning you will surely watch the spectacular sunrise while the evening you will enjoy the many fish taverns.

Other Activities: Vasiliki is a windsurfers paradise.
