“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.

“A superb location”
Reviewed 10 January 2013 for a stay in September 2012

Definitely a place to book.It's situated literally next to the sea and its secluded position allows you to go straight from the bedroom into the water! The landscape is breath-taking and for the more adventurous swimmers the caves opposite are certainly worth exploring!The modern stone 3 double bedded house which all have a sea view, is ideal for families or couples.It is tastefully furnished with all the modern facilities required,a stone barbeque adds to the excitement of cooking out doors.There is a local taverna in close vicinity so if you don't feel like cooking you can savour the traditional local cuisine.We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

“Piece of Paradise”
Reviewed 8 January 2013 for a stay in July 2012

...where the sun shines on your face and warms your soul! The view is breathtaking, the beach literally "steps" away, the water refreshing and inviting.
The Villa has all the amenities and offers both inside and outside options for enjoyable meals, one can relax in the shade or sun and if you need to "escape" you are only minutes away from village activities.

“Idyllic location on picture postcard cove and tasteful, casual and welcoming contemporary greek home. Wonderful!.”
Reviewed 7 January 2013 for a stay in August 2012

Tucked away on a beautiful cove, the house is practically on the beach and only metres from the crystal water. I loved the choice of being able to relax in the private garden or nip through the gate directly to the beach in front to swim or go boating. The house has been thoughtfully set up by the hosts to take into consideration everything that visitors would need to have a comfortable and relaxed holiday and have it feel like their own place. It is decorated to create a casual elegance both inside and out and plenty of room to spread out and feel totally at ease. The outside kitchen and entertaining area gave wonderful options for entertaining and eating casually from pizza and bbq style outside or more formerly inside if wished. I loved my holiday here and found it to be exceptionally good value for money, well located for privacy but at the same time close to town and getting around to see all the sights. I cant wait to go back again for another summer break in the future.
