"Villa Sofia" is a 2-storey vacation house, in front of the sea, just on the sandy Ionian coast, in Kanali village, about 12 klm north of the City of Preveza, on the North-West Greek coast.
It is a favorite family vacation home of an architect and a decorator from Ioannina, who spend their summers in this, the last 15 years, and offer hospitality for 2-3 weeks every year, when they move to Zagori mountains.
It is maintained by care and personal work of the owners
The house stays in the midle off a wonderful garden of 1500 square meters, with grass and trees offering lot of shadow corners .
It has two floors.
