“Peaceful and chilled out”
Reviewed 26 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We loved this place, its ideal if you want to chill out relax and enjoy time with your family. Levendis is a beautiful place with a magical feel. The pool area is fantastic and great for kids and adults alike with stunning views over the bay. The hosts, Mal and Spero are absolutely wonderful and couldn't be more friendly of helpful. Try the coffee cabin in the morning for a lovely breakfast and great company. The accommodation has a rustic feel yet is clean and of a high quality. All the transfers are sealess and on time and we really enjoyed the boat transfer!

“A magical experience”
Reviewed 24 March 2016 for a stay in April 2015

This is the third time we have returned to Levendis - and that says it all! Everything about the estate is magical: the gardens, the views, the privacy, the companionship of the owners, Spiro and Mal and above all, the spacious and comfortable lodge. There are only four lodges in a large estate so you have privacy and peace. They are comfortably furnished, clean and welcoming and you can barely see the others from either of the two verandas. The view of the sea and the bay below, especially from the exotic, infinity swimming pool stay in the memory. I recommend this destination entirely.

“Levendis was the highlight of our overseas holiday.”
Reviewed 2 February 2016 for a stay in September 2015

We absolutely loved our stay at Levendis. The stone cottage was very clean and comfortable and surrounded by beautiful garden.There were small private shady areas outside the cottage, where you could lie on recliners or sit and read. Our hosts Mal and Spero were very friendly and great fun. The swimming pool area was stunning and the pool water was colour coordinated with the seawater in the bay below!!! With the car provided we were able to visit the beautiful fishing villages nearby and the scenery on Ithaka is to die for. Levendis is most unresort like and we left there feeling totally relaxed and revived,vowing that we would return to Levendis every time we travelled overseas.

“A wonderfully tranquil and restorative holiday”
Reviewed 6 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was a wonderful holiday set in the perfect location to restore your batteries. The Estate is the perfect place for a tranquil holiday where you can rest chill and take your time. The cottages are really comfortable and quaint very clean and comfortable.

Each cottage has beautiful views over Afales bay and you can hear the waves from your bed. The two verandas are superb for eating al fresco ( take some mosquito repellent) the host offer lovely meals delivered to your cottage. The hosts Mal and Spero are ideal hosts and so friendly, their little coffee shop is lovely to just sit in and chat. I love their laid back approach they have the balance just right and they serve a lovely coffee.

The pool area is amazing with stunning views and the salt water design is the best I have experienced ideal for kids to play ing for hours. Don't miss out on the Yoga and massage which all adds to the karma.If you have kids they will love the little farm.

The island is superb with loads of little beaches to discover and the great restaurants near Levendis (walking distance) as well as dotted over the island Kioni and Frikes are lovely little harbours with restaurants on the quayside. Nowhere on the island is more than 30mins drive so make sure you get around.

The transfers are a dream and so easy, the ferry ride to the island is really nice an no hassle at all.

“Beautiful estate on Ithaca”
Reviewed 23 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We left Levendis a few days ago and wanted to write a few words to thank Mal and Spero for a truly magical and utterly relaxing week . I have wanted to visit Ithaca for many years and was looking for somewhere to take my two children ( 10 and 12 ) on my own as my husband was tied up with work . Levendis was the perfect place , from the moment we were met at the airport in Kefalonia to being dropped back at the end of our stay , we felt completely looked after . Ithaca is a beautiful island and Levendis is situated in a very special spot in the north of the island . The views are quite spectacular , the cottages are surrounded by lovely gardens , cypress and olive trees , the cicadas gently buzz through the day . Its all so easy and simple . Mal prepares delicious , organic and healthy breakfasts in her little cafe at the top of the stairs , she has my daughter hooked on her Chia porridge , but also makes great waffles with honey and smoothies and a faultless cappuccino ! The cottages are very sweet , they provide everything you need , we made a few simple meals and had all the kitchen utensils we required . Alternatively you can pre order delicious home cooked greek food , which we did a couple of times and really enjoyed ! The beds are comfortable with good linen and pillows and each cottage has its own little garden with a couple of outdoor seating areas to always provide a shady place to have a meal or sit and play cards , which we did a lot ! The pool is gorgeous , alternatively there is a beach a short and very lovely walk away . There are several good tavernas to choose from in nearby Stavros and Frikes . My daughter and I joined with another family in yoga classes with Katerina by the pool every morning which was a lovely start to our days and I had an incredible massage from Karen tucked away in the pine trees below the pool in a little pavilion where you get a gentle breeze and can hear the waves lapping below , heaven ! My children loved being able to explore the gardens and several times a day would nip off to visit Onkey the donkey and the goat and sheep . We really fell in love with Levendis and look forward to returning one day , next time with all our family , and would highly recommend it .
