Excellent villa in prime rural location
We had a great stay at the villa. Facilities are good and the welcome pack was outstanding. Good communication with Lilias who quickly sorted a few problems. She also has good local information on beaches and eateries. Best wine (if you don't want Greek) and fresh meat for BBQ is at Lidl in Lefkas Town. Only down side is the track up to the villa which could damage your car.
Relaxing and great stay
The villa was excellently equipped, the pool great and the views spectacular. We enjoyed the nice garden and the solitude and silence. Very recommendable!
A fantastic retreat with amazing views.
A perfect place to relax as a family with everything you need. The service was first class and exceeded our expectation. We spent many lazy days and evenings enjoying the comfort and setting of the villa.
The villa is perfect. It is incredibly private. The pool area was beautiful and views incredible.
It has a little what feels like private beach down the road and is perfectly situated between gorgeous Agios Nikitas and the lovely Lefkada Town.
Lilias and her team are brilliant. Ask her to tell you about Rachi restaurant. It takes your breath away when you walk in. The drive up there is super exciting as well a real adventure.
A brilliant villa with everything you need.
the best holiday house we ever had out of 15!
very impressive view, comfortable house, pool etc., nice village and beach nearby, very silent, nice large garden.
Fantastic: The "starter set" with everything you need for the first 2 days.
A perfect villa break
We selected this villa last minute and from the moment of our first enquiry until we left, Lilias and her team couldn't have been more helpful.
The views are spectacular and the villa itself was very comfortable for the four of us. The kitchen is well supplied and there's lots of shade for staying cool and out of the July sun (if that's what you like).
A car is essential as even though close to beach and village as the crow flies, the hills are very steep and it's a mile to drive to the beach and about five minutes to the village. Also, if you're hiring a car, make sure you're allowed to go "off road" as the last bit of approach to the villa is a rough track.
The sleepy village of Tsoukalades is set amongst olive groves on the hills of the north - west coast of Lefkas. The village itself is charming and traditional with narrow streets separating the small houses and there is a gorgeous old cafeneion where the locals meet to chat and drink coffee. Tsoukalades has a handful of small tavernas and restaurants, an excellent bakery, a couple of cafes and a mini market. There are two beautiful and almost private beaches about 3 minutes drive from the village, Kaminia and Gialou Skala; one of the most stunning beaches on the west coast, Pefkoulia, is about 5 minutes drive and Lefkas Town with its Ionian architecture, abundance of shops and exquisite restaurants is about 10 minutes drive. Tsoukalades is famous for the gorgeous sunsets and the most spectacular views of the Ionian; on a clear day the views extend all the way across the sea northwest to Paxos and Corfu!
Lefkas Town, 5 mins drive, is the main commercial centre and has the best shopping facilities on the island. There is a quayside road south of the causeway entrance with a busy marina. The High Street runs through the centre of town and is also known as the ‘Pazari’, this is the main street for shopping and cafes. A mid-morning coffee in the square is ideal for a break and a perfect opportunity to see the Lefkadians in ‘action’! The architecture has been mainly influenced by the Venetians and the post Byzantine traditions but also by the Turkish and the English. The houses in the main part of the town are two storey buildings, very closely packed, without yards or gardens and with narrow alleyways running between them. It is lovely to walk around the back streets of the town where you are also more likely to see the typical Lefkadian houses wrapped in brightly painted corrugated iron.
Ligia, 12 mins drive, is a pretty little coastal village on the east coast with an abundance of great fish tavernas located on the beachfront and on the picturesque harbour. There are a few cafes and bars in the village some of them right on the beach. Nidri, 20 mins drive, is the primary holiday resort on Lefkas. There are a variety of tavernas, restaurants and cafes here, also a handful of bars and a couple of nightclubs. The majority of shopping and tourist facilities are on the main street. On the seafront, known as the ‘Paralia’, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Pringiponissa islands - amongst which is Scorpios, owned by the Onassis family. Cruises and Ferryboats operate from here to Cephalonia and Ithaca.
Agios Nikitas,5 mins drive, is a pretty little village surrounded by fabulous beaches such as Pefkoulia, Kathisma and Kalamitsi. It has adequate tourist facilities, many tavernas, restaurants and a few shops. The nucleus of the village has been placed under preservation order, thus maintaining the traditional Ionian ambience.
Vassiliki, 35 mins drive, in the south is a self-contained tourist resort with a full range of facilities. The harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes and the main street has a fair number of shops. Vassiliki is of particular interest to windsurf fans. Many sailing companies operate from here and you may hire windsurf boards and catamarans on a daily or hourly basis. Vassiliki has a ferry port operating a service to Cephalonia and Ithaca.
Milos Beach – Agios Nikitas
(5 mins drive) To get to it you must go to Agios Nikitas and take a sea taxi operating a taxi service to and from Milos departing from the beach at the end of Agios Nikitas Main Street.
(approx. 20 mins drive). One of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkas. Fine shingle dotted with rock formations and a long stretch of pure white shingle beach. There are two small cafés down here and not much with regards to sun beds and beach facilities.
(approx. 45mins drive) Porto Katsiki, the best known beach, is today considered one of the most outstanding in the whole of Europe. This is a beach of exceptional beauty at the most southern tip of the island. A gorgeous shingle beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water. There are cafes and tavernas at the beach and sunbed facilities on the beach.
(approx. 35mins drive). 296 or so, steps lead down to this stunning beach virginal fine shingle beach. One of the top beaches in the Ionian Sea this is a must for visitors to Lefkas island. As with Porto Katsiki it is a gorgeous beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water.
Hiring a motorboat can open up a realm of uninhabited beaches and coves. The motorboat includes the provision of a map of the boating area, buoyancy aids, flares, oars and anchors. Many small coves on the east coast are excellent snorkeling areas where you can enjoy the local marine life such as Sea Urchins, Sea cucumbers, Hermit Crabs, and when overturning stones or rocks perhaps you will be lucky to find a Brittle Starfish or even an Octopus!
