Fantastic location with spectacular views, the 3 bedroom 3-bath villa that we stayed had everything, very quite and peacful area, the private pool was perfect and relaxing. We'd love to go back.
We have travel a lot and this villa is surtenly the best one we have stayed at! We are little family of three people and this place was defenetly childfriendly and every one of us found it to be best of all villas we have stayed at! The view is spectacular:) It was clean and well thought of all the needs!
The house is located in the most perfect location to visit all of the gorgeous beaches and nearby towns. The view from the property is heavenly and transforms the simple act of relaxing by the pool or dining on the terrace into elegant moments. The house is new construction with refined finishings, large rooms and bathrooms, and a well-appointed modern kitchen. The hosts are eager to make all guests feel happy and welcome and go out of their way to make sure you have the most enjoyable stay. We didn't want to leave and will definitely return.
Writing this review I am torn apart between the need to be objective and the advertise of this location becoming crowded. I definitely would like to come back here many times.
First of all, Lefkada was a real surprise: a green, hilly island, with incredible picturesque views, with very nice taverns, secret small beaches, turquoise waters, a rising destination.
Near to Nikiana, on the top of the hill you may find these two sister villas, Soumela and Stathis. We stayed in Villa Stathis for ten days, in July and it was one of the best vacations we had in Greece.
Villa Stathis is excelently equipped, with top brands kitchen utensils, with a nice pool and a garden with lemon trees.In the back of the villa is the forest, therefore a fresh, cool air is ensured in the evening.
The location is quiet, with dramatic sea and mountains on the continent.The access is a little bit difficult, you have to use a lot your driving skills, but this is valid anywhere in Lefkada.
The best moments are the sunshines, when the sun is getting up over the mountains.
You are close to fine beaches (Veranda or Zorbas), excellent tavernas like Pantazis or O Minas or the center of Nikiana. I recommend also Kathisma beach, even is a little bit far.
All of this make this location a secret gem.
Moreover, the kindness and frienship of the owners, Sophia and Christos, made our stay an unforgettable one.
It's not stated on the website but there are two similar villas very close to eachother, one set back and higher up from the other. The pool areas and terrace are not private from eachother. Only when we arrived did I notice that another family were staying in the villa I thought I had booked, and we in fact were next door. I explained this to the 'caretaker', who immediately phoned the owner abroad and we had a long conversation in which I explained that although it wasn't a huge problem, it had been important to us that we had a bedroom with twin beds, instead of the doubles that we found, and the view was not as panaramic as the website photos as its reduced somewhat by the other villa. Although theyre both lovely villas of a high spec and still have beautiful views, the fact remains that we were given without explanation or apology a different villa to that booked, and that is why I cannot rate it higher, and furthermore the owner refused to acknowledge this. It was his attitude that made the issue one of principle and not just inconvenience. He did however offer to deliver twin beds in a few days time (after public holidays), which I declined as we didn't want any disruption for such a short stay. And he said that he would change the website to list the villa we stayed in.
