“If you like being close to the water this is the place!”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This property is exactly as advertised in all respects. The entire rental experience is expertly managed and everything in and around the house is in excellent condition. We have rental numerous vacation homes and this was by far the best rental "customer service" we have received.
The location of Dolce Villa Dessimi is perfect for those who like to be near the water. The house is located on the beach of Dessimi Bay.
The front garden of the house is separated from the beach/water with a knee high stone wall. This gives you added privacy from the people who are using the public beach in front of the house.
To get to the Dolce Villa Dessimi you definitely need to have a car.
The town of Nydri is about a 10 minute drive and there you can get everything you need (and more) for your stay. There are plenty of tavernas in the area and there is a boat rental very close to the house should you wish to explore some of the secluded beaches in the area.
All in all a perfect place for a Greek getaway!

“Affordable slice of heaven.”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Early May weather was good, water was a little cool for swimming. However, location was just right for relaxing and having a quiet time away from a busy routine whilst on holidays. Good thing about the back yard was looking at the ocean instead of a swimming pool. If you like to jog or walk the hills have great views.

An ideal escape from today's hustle and bustle. Perfect location with breath taking views of the bay and the Ioanian sea. Our accommodation was excellent providing surround sound tv/dvd/stereo, Wi-Fi internet, outdoor barbecue, well equipped kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and impeccable bathroom facilities.
Short 5 minutes drive to the port of Nidri which offers great eateries, shopping and long walks along the port. A great family escape.
Overall we thoroughly enjoyed and recommend Dolce Villa Dessimi and won't hesitate to come back to this piece of paradise.

“Pure Tranquility”
Reviewed 13 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Being frequent travellers, getting away from the hustle and bustle of life is not always easy, even if you stay in 5 star accomodation.
Very rarley do you find a location like Dolce Vita, where you can find pure tranquility and enjoy natures paradise whilst at the same time having luxury accomodation. Here we could escape and truly relax on the front terrace looking out over the bay enjoying the cool afternoon sea breeze, a beautiful Greek salad, some freshly cooked fish and a refreshing glass of wine with good company made this true bliss. When we wanted to get a fix of human contact the beautiful marina town of Lefkada was only 10min away, where we could take a stroll along the waterfront or get caught up in the colourful liveley Greek atmosphere with open air restaraunts.

“A blissful Greek island setting for either the ideal family vacation or a romantic tryst in the sun.”
Reviewed 10 January 2013 for a stay in August 2012

May family and I were lucky enough to stay at Dolce Vita, Dessimi Bay last summer and I can't praise the villa or the location high enough. Located in a secluded bay away from mass tourism, this location has been a secret to the locals and to the few travellers who have been lucky enough to discover it as a holiday destination. The villa is in an enviable beachfront location, a rare find on the Greek islands. With the waves lapping at the doorstep, boat hire and a selection of tavernas within a few steps, there's no need to move too far to enjoy an amazing Greek island break. The villa itself is spacious, modern and well equipped with quality finishes. There is a beautifully manicured garden overlooking the bay which is perfect for children, a private sunbaking area and great amenities like BBQ and a pizza oven. The ocean there is crystal clear and there are many islands, sea caves and coves to explore by paddle boat, motor boat or canoe (which can be rented from the service that's a few metres from the villa) including Skorpios (Onassis' famous private island) which is right around the corner. If you venture further to Lefkada Town, the island offers a myriad of restaurants, tavernas, bars and open air markets in the touristy areas which are a short drive away. We took time to explore the island of Lefkada and found the most amazing, and often breathtaking beaches. We can highly recommend this idyllic villa as a great option for both families and couples and hope to visit again soon.
