The Lemon Tree is part of a small exclusive development that nestles amongst pine trees and olive groves. In an elevated position, 200mts from the beach but with glorious views overlooking the islands of Skorpios, (Owned by the Onsasis family) and Meganissi.

Situated in sought after area of Perigiali but within a three minute drive of the pretty port town of Nidri with its tavernas and coffee bars. The beautiful fishing port of Sivota is a easy twenty minute drive away and its tavernas offer locally caught fish. Vassiliki is a further ten minute drive and more suited to water sports, sailing and some surfing. The island of Lefkada is one of the few Greek Islands that remains green all year round and is covered by pine forests, olive, lemon and orange groves. The village of Karia lies in the mountains at the heart of the island and offers food and hospitality in the traditional village square which is shaded by mature trees.

The house is situated on the east of the island and enjoys calm sheltered waters, clean beaches of small mini pebbles set back in rocky inlets. On the west coast of the island you will find dazzling clear blue waters rolling up onto white sandy beaches.

The house is well appointed and decorated / furnished in a contemporary modern theme. The main town of Lefkas is architecturally and culturally influenced by its Venetian links in history. The only thing the island does not have is drunken out of control people so a laid back holiday in beautiful settings is assured. The island is served by the local airport "Aktion, Preveza" May to October and the drive to the house is a easy enjoyable affair of 40 minutes. (No ferries to catch) Built in 2010 the house meets all the latest EU building regulations but built sympathetically to reflect the natural stone traditional houses.

The Ionian Islands region

Wake up to the warm morning sun and take a relaxing breakfast on the upper private balcony over looking some of the best veiws that Lefkada has to offer. Stunning views across the Ionian sea taking in the islands of Scorpios and Megannisi all set against a breathtaking back drop of the mountains on mainland Greece. The islands of Kefalonia and Ithaka are a ferry trip away. Take a day trip around the islands on a local cruise boat, which will stop frequently to allow swimming in the warm blue waters, if you are lucky dolphins can be seen and more commonly schools of tuna. Some captains offer beach bbqs, others traditional, locally sourced freshly grown food. Plenty of time to snooze on deck in the warm sea breeze, The school run and daily grind become a distant memory.

Lefkas

200mtrs from the Lemon Tree house are two small secluded beaches only used and known by locals. The pretty village port of Nidri is a five minute gentle drive away, Nidri is a thriving and bustling port town with a wide choice of tavernas, coffee shops, bars and small shops. Like to people watch? The quayside of Nidri is perfect, park yourself on a bench and watch the world go by, take a lazy stroll past the yachts or even sign up to hire a small day yacht or motor boat. (cars and mopeds also available)

A fifteen minute drive through the mountains will bring you to the picture post card village port of Sivota along with its waterside tavernas all selling fresh fish and bbq meats.

Moving on a further 15 minutes to the ferry town of Vasiliki and suddenly you find wide sandy beaches with rolling surf (popular with younger people but by no means a lager louts paradise).

A 25 minute drive up into the heart of the island and through pine forests will bring you into Karia a traditional unspoilt village with a public square shaded by old mature trees, in the square you can eat, do coffee and shop for traditional lace and embroidered soft furnishings. Whilst on the east coast of the island the waters are calm and gentle, the west coast is characterised by stunning blue waters and rolling waves crashing onto white sandy beaches, this side of the island is more rugged and mountainous but never the less is still accessible, taveranas will be found on the beaches but also perched on the side of a hill again with far reaching and breathtaking views.

The main town of the island is Lefkas and offers everything from bars, tavernas in little back streets to boutique shopping, the main pedestrianised street of Lefkas is a great place to witness local greek men "doing coffee" not to mention the women that love to dress to impress whilst parading as if on a cat walk, but hey this is greece!

Lefkas boast a large marina and is the first town that you enter as you drive onto the island via the swing bridge.

The local airport is Aktion Preveza open fro May to October which is a leisurely twenty minute drive away from the island of Lefkada.

"Relax in Lemon Tree"

We, 2 couples, took the appartment for 6 nights, as the relax part of our 2 weeks trip in Greece.Although the appartment was not ideal for us (no private bathrooms and located not on the beach line), … More

We are not promised that every room of the villa has its own private bathroom or that the house is surrounded by sea.
write clearly in the site that the house is 70 square and has a large bathroom and a wc.also that is 200 meters far away from the sea and this is the truth. is clear to understand that there is two bathrooms inside the house and used exclusively from our clients .
thanks a lot

"Beautiful Views, Peaceful setting and Nice property"

Never sure what to expect from a property as you only have the description to go on, but my wife and and I were not disappointed. The property and location were as advertised with beautiful views over the islands and not to far from the beach or Nidri the main port town.
Kostas and Mavreta the property owners where very warm, friendly and helpful. The island is stunning with everything you would expect from a greek island holiday, picture post card villages and harbours, open air dining and just a warm peaceful and content feel about the place. Will go again and happy to recommend "The Lemon Tree" Good value for what you get.
