About the villa

This superbly sited villa in Lefkada sits right at the water’s edge, cushioned in colourful gardens which lead to its own jetty, and cossetting guests with quality, comfort and style. Spacious and sophisticated, this lovely villa in the heart of Lefkada’s glorious Geni Peninsula has a rather grown-up feel. Beautifully renovated to create an oasis of calm, it is furnished in soft neutrals and embellished with oak and Italian marble. The sitting/dining room opens on to a generously sized terrace, looking out over the water and comfortably furnished for coffees or sundowners.

Each of the three double bedrooms has doors to a terrace or a Juliet balcony, and can be converted to twin beds if required; and special mention must be made of the vast Master Suite, which runs the full length of the house and opens on to a covered, sea-facing terrace. Lawned and palm-dotted gardens surround the swimming pool and meet the sea, accessing the jetty’s boat mooring. From here it is an easy sail across to Nidri for shopping, and a choice of beaches and good snorkelling sites are within fifteen minutes by boat. There are good tavernas a ten to fifteen minute stroll from Sailor’s Retreat.

About the area


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.
