We stayed at villa pasithea in July this year, and I have to say it was an amazing villa with the most fantastic views and filled with everything you’d need for a fabulous holiday. It was very well appointed and with the added touch of the welcome pack, of food and drink is a lovely way to start your holiday. John, Lydia and Elena are great hosts and very welcoming. The infinity pool was my favourite place to be, we never wanted to leave the pool. The only thing I would say is the villa is up a steep hill, which might not be suitable for everyone, but it does give you the most amazing views. The town of Nydri, on the main road near the villa is full of lovely restaurants, bars and shops. I would definitely recommend this villa, book now to avoid disappointment!!
I had looked all over the Greek islands for a villa with a mooring in a sensible price bracket and chose this one. So glad I did. After an hours taxi ride from the airport we arrived tired and emotional (personal reasons for the emotional). Our welcome could not have been better; Lilias and Ioanna were there to greet us with a huge welcome pack of food (no need to go out the first evening if we did not want to).
The rooms were perfect - modern, but not minimalist, with several quirky pieces. Three double bedrooms upstairs. All (I think) have kingsize beds (the master certainly did). One bedroom at the back downstairs.
The garden was full and leafy with plenty of different places to sit, either in the shade or sun. There are only four places to lounge by the pool, but there are also loungers by the waters edge which is great for watching the boats go by. The pool was a bit too cold for me (the sea, in September, was warmer), although I wouldn't swim in the lagoon off the villa.
We hired a RIB (power boat licence needed) from Trident Boats (recommend) which arrived our first evening and spent our days exploring Lefkada, Meganissi and even down to Ithaka. The snorkelling is not great to be honest but the boat gives a great sense of adventure and fun - perfect for a family with young adults. (NB - fuel expensive C. £800.00 for 2 weeks) Mooring adjacent to the restaurants, finding a private cove or heading to the Reggae Bar on Meganissi was all part of the fun, before returning to our very private villa.
So thank you to Ioanna Margeli for Villa Yalenia. We look forward to returning in the next year or so.
