The house is outside, more precisely situated above the village Calamitsi on a plateau 550m standing alone in the great outdoors. Sometimes you can still see all around the old vineyards that are now left to nature. Kept olive groves in between. The Sea in the west, to the other side of the mountains. It is exactly in the wind rose in north-south direction. From east to west, one can see through the house, from the mountain to the sea. The country was once a terraced vineyard with 2,000 square meters, we begin again be planted with vines and olive trees.

Our 'mountain' to the east is the Stavrotas (high as the chunks which boasts more than 1100m), towards the southwest and west and northwest stretches the views of the Ionian Sea.

Entspannung pur im Traumhaus!

  • 5 of 5

Unser dreiwöchiger Aufenthalt in diesem Haus war ein Traum. Wir haben uns sofort wohl gefühlt. Ein wunderschönes Haus, ausgestattet mit Allem was man zum angenehmen Leben benötigt, dennoch nicht überfrachtet und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet. Und das in bezaubernder, ruhiger Lage!

Wir hatten unvergessliche Augenblicke und Aussichten auf eine vielseitige Natur. Gerade die Kombination von Bergen und Meer in unmittelbarer Nähe hat uns sehr fasziniert. Abgerundet wird die Umgebung des Hauses von einem schön angelegten und gepflegten Garten. Die Sonnenuntergänge und den Sternenhimmel von der großzügigen Terrasse aus zu bewundern, das war Entspannung pur! Angelika und Helmut, die sehr freundlichen Vermieter, geben ihren Gästen viele wertvolle und zutreffende Tipps.

Wir können dieses Haus uneingeschränkt empfehlen und kommen auch gerne wieder!

Owner's Response: Allem Anschein nach haben wir über die praktischen 'Basics' hinaus den Geschmack getroffen...Das ist sicher nicht immer so. Aber genauso wichtig wie die "Grundlagen des Wohlfühlens" sind uns am Ort unserer zweiten Heimat die atmosphärischen Aspekte. Deshalb freut uns, wenn es für Sie so stimmig war. Wenn wir selbst im KalaHaus diesen Einklang leben können, fühlen wir uns am Ende unserer eigenen Aufenthalte seelisch gestärkt. Und: Danke für die wertschätzende Rückmeldung. A&H im Juli 2015

Ein besonderer Urlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus hat für uns schon eine besondere Bedeutung. Wir hatten die Möglichkeit bis jetzt zweimal das Haus besuchen zu können, obwohl es die meiste Zeit von Freunden der Familie und der Familie selber belegt war. Wir kennen Helmut und Angelika über gemeinsame Bekannte und sind durch deren Ausführungen über die einzigartige Insel Lefkas und das wunderschöne Haus auf den Geschmack gekommen und haben Kontakt mit den Beiden aufgenommen.

Bei unserem ersten Aufenthalt war das Haus bei Kalamitsi die ersten Tage noch belegt, sodass wir auf der nord-östlichen Seite der Insel, in Nikiana, untergekommen sind. Dort hat es uns nicht so gut gefallen und wir waren heilfroh, als wir „endlich“ an die Westküste in unser richtiges Ferienhaus wechseln konnten. Ein Unterschied wie Tag und Nacht! Wir haben die gesammte Westküste als viel reizvoller empfunden. Lefkas ist eine sehr abwechslungreiche Insel, mit toller Flora und Fauna, teilweise sehr grün, aber es gibt auch viele Olivenhaine und bizarre Gebirgszüge mit versteckten Klöstern. Nicht nur das Haus an und für sich ist wunderbar, sondern auch der Blick, DIESER Blick auf´s Meer, einfach atemberaubend und man fühlt sich nach ein paar Minuten schon vollkommen im Urlaub angekommen! Das Haus ist mit allen Extras ausgestattet und die Schlafzimmer sind sehr stilvoll eingerichtet, obwohl mir persönlich der riesige offene Küchen-, Ess- und Wohnbereich am meisten zugesagt hat, einfach toll individuell Eingerichtet, gemütlich und großzügig. Wir haben auch tatsächlich bei unserem zweiten Aufenthalt einige Tage am Haus verbracht und jeder hat sich draußen selber beschäftigt und erholt, auf Liegestühlen, unter der Pinie, ein paar Schritte durch die Natur usw.. Natürlich haben wir auch bei unserem ersten Aufenthalt die Atmosphäre des Hauses und der Umgebung genossen z.B. mit langen Grillabenden mit Fisch und Meersesfrüchten, Lagerfeuer, entspannen. Und jeden morgen habe ich den Tag mit einer Runde Yoga auf den weitläufigen Terrassen begonnen und auf´s Meer geschaut. Wir haben viel von der Insel entdeckt, allerdings waren wir meistens an den Stränden unterhalb des Hauses, Megalopetra, Avali und Kevalikefta, da sie nicht nur sehr nah waren, sondern uns auch am allerbesten gefallen haben, mit türkis-blauem Wasser.

Für uns waren es wirklich immer perfekte Urlaube, selten habe ich es erlebt, das alles so gepasst hat!

Extradordenary location

  • 5 of 5

We had perfect holidays at this villa nearby Kalamitsi, where you can find two small supermarkets, taverna´s and a cafe neon. The villa is very special and I instantly felt welcomed and comfortable, but the most outstanding charcteristic of this property was, that I could find my inner peace again.

You step out of the terrace doors and you are in pure, untouched nature with a wide view on the sea in the front and the mountains in the back of the house, very refreshing and calming! The description of the house is very accurate, only the pictures don´t do the house, the property and the beaches justice. The only negative thing: the time flew by so quickly, and we would have liked to stay much longer!! We seriously can´t wait to come back!

Ein traumhafter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Unsere Familie hatte zwei wunderschöne und erholsame Wochen in diesem einladenden Haus in toller Umgebung abseits des Touristentrubels. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und unsere Erwartungen an das Haus wurden sogar übetroffen! Aufgrund des freundlichen und persönlichen Kontaktes mit den Vermietern haben wir uns stets gut aufgehoben gefühlt. Vielen Dank für alles!

Owner's Response: Lieben Dank, Sonja! Dass es euch gut gefallen hat war für uns eine große Freude. Noch laden wir seit nicht allzu langer Zeit Gäste ein, die sozusagen "unser zweites zu Hause" erleben können. Für uns ist es eine Rückmeldung und Bestätigung dafür, dass wir auch den richtigen Ort, die richtige Lage und den richtigen Platz für unseren "Lebenstraum" gefunden und gestaltet haben. Gerne wieder bei uns: willkommen! Eure Familie Glo.-Jos. Angelika und Helmut

Strange

Lefkas (Lefkada), 'our' island in the Ionian Sea, there has been no mass tourism such as Crete or Corfu. The journey is possible via a swing bridge, which saves a translator with a ferry. Lefkada is meerumschlossen from all sides. That until today do relatively few people on Lefkada holidays, but is its beauty on the mountains and the sea, its originality in the towns on the island, its variety of bays and long drawn beaches, also untouched nature with high biodiversity rather surprising us very pretty.

shop

The nearest village - Kalamitsi - can be reached about three minutes by car. There are two small shops (one about open all year), where you can buy food for daily needs. For larger purchases, a tour offers to Lefkada Town.

Beaches

There are many beautiful stretches of land on the sea everywhere in Greece, the beaches of Lefkada are among the finest. On the west coast occur again and again produced the chalk cliffs, white pebble beaches along the coast form an interesting contrast to the turquoise sea. Colors games depending on the light and wind. Everywhere clean water, many quiet and secluded places itself in the main holiday season. Porto Katsiki is famous, but also the beaches of Vassiliki and Agios Nikitas near us, just like Kathisma, Kavalikefta, Avali and Megalo Petra 'below' our high-altitude house invite.

Walking and cycling

The island is - although relatively small - extremely mountainous. Cyclists and hikers will find here challenging paths that offer many places a great view.

Windsurfing and paragliding

Surf beaches are - in addition to the nearby west of Lefkada Town 'spot' - the in Vassiliki in the south, the beach of Kathisma with windsurfers is near us very popular as here in the afternoon ensure regular strong winds and a shallow lake for a lot of fun while surfing. From the house we can see the village Exanthia northeast of us, close to the restaurants 'To Pachni' is a launch pad for paragliders. You float like colorful eagle on the island and landing on the beach of Kathisma.

Diving

In Nidri, Vasiliki and Nikiana each is a diving center. The dive sites are interesting for beginners and for advanced divers and always offer a very vibrant underwater world.

Excursions

With day cruises you can visit up to 7 Ionian Islands on a day the same. The rides are offered in the ports of Nidri and Vassiliki. The objectives include the islands of Meganisi, Scorpios, Cephalonia, Ithaca and Paxos. We love day trips to the island of Meganisi. Apart from the warm scenery of the island and the tranquility of places, the swimming and snorkeling is on the east side of a pleasure ... that the sea is clean, the mussels prove that hidden on the seabed algae grow in the meadows.

Tours through the karstic "mountain" of Lefkada have their special charm. So to our Stavrotas, our local mountain to the east. The highest peak is Elati (1158 meters above sea level). To completely "out" the beauty of the island is recommended to visit with a well-terrain car off the paved roads. A private tour of discovery are Lefkás' worth small, remote mountain villages, z. B. Karia and Eglouvi. Here the residents maintain numerous ancient traditions - and of real authentic style and not to tourists with supply to "attractions". Karia is particularly known for embroidery products of local women. Among the main attractions is also the fabled Cape Dukato whose white chalk cliffs Lefkás (the "White") owes its name. Here, on the southern tip of Lefkada rough, moved once Homer the entrance to the underworld.

Eating tips

Close to us is in the village Hortata at the town entrance, just after a short directions, the Aloni Restaurant with excellent Greek cuisine at reasonable prices, with more interesting vegetarian menu, with its own local wine and always tasty with fresh ingredients. It has open all year. From April opens the 'To Pachni' in Exanthia, and later in Kalamitsi there is a rustic Greek taverna and a cafe bar.

Lefkada town has remained until now "spared" by the big fast food chains. Instead, there are many small food shops that offer "Greek fast food" like Pita Gyros or Crépes in all its variations, as well as stately restaurants along the two waterfronts by northwest and east.

Going out

In addition to numerous entertainment in Lefkas town and Nidri-have especially in the summer,

Concerts on the beach of Kathisma Cafe-Libre by our friend Ioannis and his family special charm. Great Greek as well as international musicians can turn up here ... and the hospitality is great!
