This traditional stone retreat is positioned in the beautiful Greek village of Neohori, right above the bustling holiday town of Nidri. The house built in 2008 by its current owners is situated on the outskirts of the village offering sensational sea and mountain views making the most of the Southern Ionian Islands that stretch out beneath you all the way down to the Dragoneras. You are guaranteed utmost privacy at this home as you have no immediate neighbours making it the perfect getaway from the busy lives that many of us lead.

The modern design of this property, expressed through stone, granite and wood fuses unobtrusively with the surrounding Lefkadian scenery, while its large windows and doors shower the interiors with plenty of natural light. Sophisticated taste and loving touches are the main ingredients used for creating this minimalistic but warm summer home. Pelican house has been equipped to be a home away from home and we aspire to provide all the things you could possible need for the duration of your holiday. This summer haven, perfectly equipped to welcome all clients including children offers supreme accommodation. Unwind on the natural stone terrace beside the organically shaped pool, perfect for a lazy swim or quick dip to cool off in the sunshine. Enjoy the beautiful views from the swing seat and come together at the outdoor dining area for a barbecue using local produce bought from the nearby town of Nidri a short ten minute drive away.

Lefkas is hugely popular with watersports lovers with Nidri being home to many yacht and power boat charter companies. Down the road to Vassiliki and you will find a mass of windsurfers hitting the water in search of 'Eric', the wind that rushes down the mountain every afternoon.

For the beach bums there are some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe including Porto Katsiki around the west coast of the island and there are plenty of trails for those of you who enjoy walking or mountain-biking. Or, why not just chill out by the pool at your private villa and watch the world go by below you!

The owners of this private home live in Nidri and have worked in the area for the past nine years making them very knowledgeable about all that you can do on the wonderful island that is Lefkada. If you need any assistance in booking flights, car hire or any trips you would like to do they are more than happy to help. It will be them that you email and speak to on the end of the phone so no middle man involved guaranteeing the best price and service available. We are one of few villas on the island to have a rental licence ensuring that the house is maintained to a high standard and meets rental requirements.

The Ionian Islands region

The villa is close to many activities including dinghy/yacht sailing, windsurfing, kite surfing, rental of quads/bikes/powerboats, trips to the surrounding Greek islands. For keen walkers there are many trails just behind the villa and for those who just want a good beach there are plenty to choose from less than 45 minutes drive away.

The villa is a ten minute drive from the busy town of Nidri, passing through the village of Paleokatouna which has two tavernas and a bar. Preveza Airport is a 40 minute drive.

For those interested in Sailing the owners own and work for two of the yacht charter companies in Nidri and are happy to organise day sailing out of Nidri at discount prices. Or why not do a Stay and Sail Holiday and have one week in the villa and one week on a beautiful yacht. We can offer 10% discount on a combined holiday


Nidri, sometimes spelt Nydri, is the island's main tourist resort and has an absolutely stunning setting at the mouth of the long and impressive inlet of Vlycho bay. There is a spectacular view of the many tiny islands dotted around the turquoise blue sea, one of which is Scorpios, privately owned by the Onassis family.

Nidri (Nydri) has everything for a great seaside holiday - a great variety of eating and drinking options, lots of boat excursions, plenty of water sports. The beach is very popular during the summer but for those of you looking for bigger and slightly quieter beaches there are many to choose from on the west coast of the island, around 45 minutes away.

Nidri (Nydri) was once the playground of billionaire Aristotle Onassis and until his death, the area remained quite exclusive and undeveloped. In recent years, however, it has grown into the island's biggest and liveliest resort with many bars and tavernas lining the sea front. Its popularity has a lot to do with the sailing fraternity, who have long made its safe harbour a necessary port of call when in these waters.

The area around Nidri (Nydri) is fairly flat and therefore ideal for cycle riding or walks through the olive groves to the Nidri Waterfalls. For the more energetic, fantastic views can be seen from the surrounding hills of Nidri, covered with wonderful wild flowers and blossoms in the spring and early summer months.

This year we are offering Mountain Biking weekends from September – November. New company Get Active offer guided bike rides on Lefkas and the nearby island of Meganissi. They have a range of rides available from relaxed rides through the olive groves to advanced rides up into the mountains and along the coastline.

"A little piece of heaven!"

Amazing villa on top of the mountain, fantastic views, amazing pool & great BBQ. The last bit of the drive up is a little tricky but well worth it when you get there. We had everything we needed and didn't want to leave!

"Stunning view and all the creature comforts at your fingertips"

The view is just stunning, everything in the house actually works (not always a given in the med!) and whatever small issues there are, they get ironed out in no time. Great place with kids if they can swim, small toddlers could be an issue coz parents sleep upstairs. Perfect base to explore the islands, get yourself into some sport activities or simply sit by the pool to let the world go by. Want to get away from the hectic everyday life, this is the perfect spot! Fantastic welcome pack and excellent customer service, delivered behind the scenes without you actually even noticing it. 5 out of 5!!!
