Our view

Set right at the water’s edge, with a private pool and its own boat jetty, this is a lovely villa in the heart of Lefkada’s gorgeous Geni Peninsula, just a stroll away from a choice of good tavernas.

  • Walk to restaurants
  • Private jetty

About the villa

Luxuriant gardens surround this family villa, filled to capacity with fruit trees, flowering shrubs, palms, pines and a pond; and climbing up from the private mooring in a series of tiered terraces linked by stone stairways. Each terrace offers its own perspective on the bay below, one with a shaded dining table, another perfect for a quiet read, and the largest surrounding the private pool and replete with loungers and colourful planters. Within the welcoming villa, attractively furnished rooms are finished with a personal touch and include three bedrooms, each with air conditioning, en suite bath or shower, and doors to a terrace or balcony. Fitted in contemporary country style, the kitchen has a breakfast bar, dining table and doors to the terrace; while the airy sitting room is flooded with light from a full window-wall, and complete with a wood-burning stove for evenings in the cooler months. About 500m from local tavernas, and 1.5km from a basic mini-market and with a bakery at 2km, the villa is within 4km of Desimi beach and 6km from Nidri, though both could be accessed more pleasurably by boat from Kingfisher’s jetty.

About the area

Lefkada

Average weather

In the Ionian family of islands, Lefkada is the black sheep. For a start, it is connected to the mainland by a causeway and bridge, and so does not have to rely on ferries. Unlike the rest of the archipelago, it was conquered by the Ottoman Empire, and pronounced Turkish influences give it more in common with the mainland. Lefkada holidays take you to something of an under-appreciated—and slightly oddball—gem, with intricate lagoons and marshes, spectacular cliffs, bays, and headlands, and some of the best beaches in Greece. In addition to Lefkada Town and Nidri, there are smaller resorts on the east coast at Perigiali, Nikiana and Lygia; and regular ferries ply between Lefkada and the nearby islands of Meganissi, Ithaca, and Kefalonia.
