About the villa

Set in very extensive and highly panoramic private grounds of just over an acre on the verdant Geni Peninsula, this treasured family home is supremely comfortable and makes an excellent get-together venue for family or friends. With air conditioning, all mod cons, and a design style ranging from comfortably country to smart contemporary and decorated with works of art collected in Greece, Costa Rica and Japan, the accommodation over three floors includes a pool side guest suite, with a spacious double bedroom and its own kitchen/living room. The three further spacious bedrooms, all opening to furnished balconies share the top floor with another attractive sitting room, acting like a look-out tower and complete with telescope. In between, on the main floor, are a well-equipped large breakfast kitchen, an airy dining room with a solid wood refectory table for ten, and big sofas and bean bags and large TV in an informal sitting room.

All three rooms at this level open on to a long veranda, furnished for al fresco dining and gazing out across the water to Scorpios island; steps lead down from here to the infinity pool in its sea view terrace; and an outdoor kitchen, ideal for leisurely lunches, has a wood oven, barbecue and prep area. There is also a shaded dining area at this level adjacent to the outside kitchen area and table tennis at the rear of the property. Paths meander through the beautiful mature tiered gardens to an area furnished with sunbeds for relaxation by the water and stone steps leads down to the two shingle beaches below, one with jetty with boat mooring. The villa is a short drive (or sail) to tavernas in Geni and Nidri. Bathrobes and Korres bathroom amenities are provided. Water’s Edge guests will receive a complimentary Greek wine tasting at the villa provided by a local expert.  Guests will have the opportunity to learn more about Greek wines and try a variety of six wines paired with local cheeses and salamis. A unique and special property.

 

Reviews

“What a week- Greek hospitality at its very best and a villa that is unsurpassable.  Thank you for the wine tasting which was a total delight- See you next year!”


"From the moment we arrived, tired from an early flight from the UK, to find the villa hostess had prepared the most delicious welcoming meal for us to the moment we left with tears all round, we experienced total relaxation and comfort beyond our expectation.  
The peaceful location, wonderful views and carefully planned layout of Water's Edge would be hard to beat and we so loved walking down that little path, lined with lavender and butterflies, to our dear little beach, perfect for swimming, snorkelling and anchoring our boat.  We will most definitely return."

“What a beautiful villa the Water’s Edge is.  We have had the best week ever- very very special!  We love Kasi so much and her cooking is unbelievable.  She is wonderful.  Thanks you so much.  We don’t want to leave.”

“Water’s Edge is truly a taste of Paradise. Firstly, the location is absolutely ideal: a boat’s ride from Nidri with its shops and welcoming taverna’s, and not far from the beautiful Meganisi. The villa itself is perfect; wonderfully laid out and incredibly spacious with comfortable large beds and luxurious bathrooms. It really is a home away from home, especially with all the modern comforts and teenager must-haves (Wifi, Netflix and Apple TV) and so much more! The view is just spectacular, and the peace and tranquillity of its private beaches, the fabulous pool, the picturesque garden and most hospitable and loving Kasi make it one of our most favourite places on earth. Get ready for the getaway of your life!”

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.
