About Matt White
I am a proud Kiwi married to my beautiful Greek wife who with we have two young boys. My wife whose family and relatives are local to the Island, spent most of her summer holidays living on the Island. Recently after a 20 year stint in London, UK, we have decided to move back to my home country of NZ for the boys, although maintaining strong oversight of the business with regular visits Greece and our brilliant full time local manager, Minas! My wife first introduced me to Lefkada in 2003 and it was on this trip that I was hooked by the stunning undeveloped coast line and amazing west coast beaches with incredible azure and turquoise blue waters, similar to a tropical paradise!! Having spent most of my childhood summers by the sea in New Zealand and Australia, and having travelled extensively around the world, I was taken by the island and knew I just had to get a slice of paradise to build our very own dream Mediterranean summer holiday home. After an extensive search we luckily came across this beautiful Kathisma Beach plot and was immediately taken by the views. We acquired the land in 2007 and after a long and painstaking labour of love the past few years we finally completed the build in 2016! We welcome you as our guests and sincerely hope that you have a relaxing and enjoyable stay and fully appreciate the shear beauty of the location and the fruits of our labour of love!
Matt White purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Matt White chose Lefkada
WHAT MAKES OUR VILLAS UNIQUE? Simply the stunning Ionian Sea views and sunsets that most of our clients would quite simply rate as one of the best in the world! The view constantly changes day by day, night by night, hour by hour, and is as beautiful on a hot summers day, or star filled night, as it is in the middle of a winter storm. It is a view that you would never tire off! During the busy summer months the elevated secluded position of the villas overlooking Kathisma Beach enables you to enjoy the views and feel like you are part of the action at the beach, from the comfort and privacy of your own pool lounger! Location of the villas is also perfect for exploring the beautiful west coast beaches, and is very close to Agios Nikitas (3mins) which offers fantastic taverna's, cafes and bars, as well as plenty of shops for your essential supplies.
What makes this Villa unique
Kathisma Beach is a large stunning white pebble sand beach on the beautiful West Coast of Lefkada Island, with spectacular azure and turquoise waters and incredible sunsets. It is one of the most well known and popular beach resorts in Lefkada Island, and during the peak summer months the beach is lively and partly organised with sun loungers and umbrellas serviced by a number of taverna’s and beach cafés/bars. For adrenalin junkies there are also professional paragliding operators offering spectacular flights over the bay of Kathisma. In the quiet season the beach offers serene wild tranquillity at its best. As Lefkada is a large island, we highly recommend hiring a car. Lefkada is the fourth largest Ionian island and is popular but still relatively untouched, offering stunning coastline and beaches with a mountainous pine clad interior, charming character villages, vineyards and great tavernas, café’s and bars. The east coast is more developed and populated with pretty coastline overlooking the island gulf while the west coast is less developed and has an untouched dramatic coastline with stunning vistas. The West Coast of Lefkada is famous for its numerous stunning white pebble sand beaches many of which, are recognised as the best in Greece, including Porto Kastiki, Egremni, Kathisma beach, Milos, Pefkulia and several others which are situated nearby. THINGS TO DO NEARBY: For the active-types the island is also a sailing and water sports mecca, with world-class sailing, windsurfing and kite surfing. Other popular activities include scuba diving, paragliding, hiking and mountain bike tours. Hiring a small powerboat or yacht or taking a charter boat or an organised boat cruise to explore the beautiful east coast and archipelago of many beautiful islands, such as Skorpios (Onassis former island), Meganisi, Kefalonia, and Ithaki.

Paradise in Lefkada.
From the moment we arrived we were in bliss. We were warmly welcomed and assisted with our luggage up the steps to the most amazing villa with one of the most spectacular views in Lefkada.
A view that can be seen from every aspect of the villa inside and out.
The layout, design and decor is perfect with everything we needed to make our stay luxurious..
They are also situated in what I think is the best part of Lefkada. The beach below was our favourite of all the beaches on the island. Close to Agios Nikitas and close to Lefkada town.
For sure we will return to Kathisma bay villas next time we come to Lefkada..
villa with perfect view
The villa was excellent: it was clean, pretty, modern and cosy and had a huge terrace with a perfect view to the sea. The beach is about 10 minutes walk from the villas and has a couple great restaurants that I can recommend. A little town is near too and it has some small super markets where we could get everything we needed. We had a great time there and I would recommend this property to everyone.
Stunning views, extremely tranquil and beautiful.
We had a wonderful escape at the villa for a week in August. Great for a family vacation and really don't need to leave the villa but lots to do if you wish to venture our. Fantastic pool and surroundings, and great service from the villa manager and the owners. They even called us to ensure we were okay during a power cut.
I would highly recommend for a real escape and getaway to unwind and relax and better if you take both villas and share with family or friends which we plan to do next time.
Fabulous Villa with Amazing Views
Kathisma Bay Villas are ideally located on the hillside above Kathisma Beach, with just a short drive to Kathisma, Agios Nikitas or a 20 minute drive to Lefkada Town.
We stayed in Villa Oceanos, which is modern, functional, exceptionally clean and well equipped with everything you would need for your stay.
Inside the property the kitchen is very well equipped for a holiday let, the beds are very comfortable, bathrooms stylish and showers were powerful.
The outdoor and pool area is great, with different seating areas and a large umbrella for some welcome shade from the midday sun.
The villa manager, Minas, is warm and friendly and it is clear that he takes pride in the villas...his attention to detail is evident both inside and outside the villas - everywhere is kept immaculate.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, in particular the beautiful sunsets we watched from the terrace and would highly recommend it.
Wonderful house and really well managed
Casa bellissima, con una vista spettacolare , una fantastica piscina e arredi funzionali e moderni.
Oltre ad essere molto bella, la casa è molto vivibile e comoda e soprattutto è davvero gestita benissimo. Pulitissima, con arredi e accessori perfetti, nuovissimi e per niente rovinati (anche i cuscini esterni sono immacolati!). Sia il proprietario che il manager sono molto gentili e disponibili per qualunque richiesta, anche per escursioni e suggerimenti su ristoranti e attività da fare. Speriamo di tornarci al più presto!!
Kathisma is a well known excellent spot for paragliding. There are many operators providing professional paragliding from Kathisma or nearby Exanthia.
