We booked this villa for one week in September after checking a lot of villas in Lefkada. First we booked this one because it had 4 bedrooms and 4 private bathrooms, perfect for 4 couples wanting privacy. We were excited about the pictures but, being our first vacation in a villa and not a hotel, we were skeptical about them but what a surprise we had !!! After some problems with one of the cars, we arrived at the villa late at night, around 03:00 but the owner waited for us with lighted candles in the entire villa, welcome fruit baskets, pastry and drinks. Being extremely tired after 24 hours of driving due to the car problems we all wanted to go to sleep but the incredible views from the patio and the amazing garden with the pool kept us awake a few more hours. It was the first location we ever been to that looked better than the pictures!!!
The villa itself is amazing with a great living area, very nice bedrooms but the main feature is the garden with the pool and deck directly to the sea. Everything was spotless, very clean and tidy including the garden. We didn't spent a lot of time at the pool mainly because the island has a lot to offer and during the day we went exploring and also in September, in the evening, the weather is a little bit chilly but this is a perfect villa for groups that want to stay inside, have a barbeque or sunbath around the pool. The main bedroom is huge with very nice furniture, a very big walk-in closet a huge open bathroom that also had a big shower and a jacuzzi and a lovely terrace with a fantastic view of the Vlycho bay. The other three bedrooms are spacious with the same type of furniture and very nice baths. The villa had everything anyone could ever ask for: fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, barbeque, sound system with a great selection of Greek and international music, maps and guides of the island, books, magazines etc.
The only downside may be the location, you need a car if you're staying there (or a boat because it has it's own deck where you can anchor it) but it's a private retreat with a few good taverns nearby.
