This was our first visit to Lefkada and we were unsure of the right area for us. However both the area and the property did not disappoint. The house is set up high on the hill with a spectacular view of the sea below. One word of guidance though for your initial drive to the property. The track that leads up the hill is quite stony and steep ( we initially had to check that the road actually led anywhere ) but the view you get at the top is fantastic.
We rented the ground floor apartment and it had everything you would need. The only thing missing for us was a toaster. Thea , the owner, lives on site and is so helpful and friendly giving any local information or dealing with any issues immediately. We spent many evenings sitting out on our porch or the communal area to the side of the house, sipping our pre dinner drinks and admiring the fabulous view. My camera is filled with so many panoramic vistas taken at different times of the day.
The local village of Lygia has a few tavernas and many specialise in local fish which was right up our street. The walk down to Lygia (down the hill not too bad but up was a bit of a challenge) took about 20 minutes. Driving would take 5 minutes.
There are many beaches close by but our favourite (unfortunately found on our last day) was Milos Beach close to Agios Nikitas. You can take the taxi boat there and it is well worth it.
Overall we had a lovely stay here and would recommend it for a peaceful relaxing holiday. …
