A magical, peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

The villa Effelli is a beautifully and artistically decorated house, right on a lovely stretch of sandy beach. We loved the hammocks and outside eating area, we loved the balconies and gorgeous bathrooms. Our lovely host generously arranged for fresh bread to be delivered every day and the kitchen was well equipped with everything we could

possibly need. Sitting outside in the evening watching the sunset was really special. A peaceful, magical place.

Un instant de paradis

  • 5 of 5

La Villa Efelli est un lieu merveilleux, plein de poésie et de délicatesse.

La lumière douce, la plage déserte, l'air léger, les meubles anciens, les dentelles blanches et les hamacs, un sentiment de parenthèse enchantée, un lieu hors du temps offert par des hôtes merveilleux qui ont su créer l'inoubliable.

Un grand merci à Dimitra pour son accueil et sa confiance. Nous avons vécu ici des moments que nous garderons précieusement dans nos coeurs.

We adored Villa Efelli. It is a delightful house in a beautiful location. Every morning I played my guitar for a couple of hours in the garden with only the sea view and a lot of cicadas for company. The beach is pretty much private - very few itinerant bathers, mostly just residents of the few local houses. The water is crystal clear, with no urchins underfoot - a great relief. 25 mins walk or 3 mins drive to tavernas on Vrachos beach or the one in Lygia village. Plenty of bars, minimarkets in Vrachos, too. Vrachos was quite lively - bars and watersports - so we alternated with a day on the beach at home and one there. The villa is clearly a beloved family retreat and the decor is exquisite (if quirky in places). The kitchen is on the small side, but we coped and cooked regularly without too much trouble. The outside spaces are simply glorious.... Finally, Dimitra was a wonderful host, even going so far as to bake cakes and pies for us, as well as delivering fresh cherries and arranging for daily bread deliveries. Definitely a five-star experience from us.

Unique style, wonderful view, homelike.

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of relatives with kids and I can say that this property was the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing holiday. Spacious rooms, unique traditional style, well equipped kitchen with all facilities. The espresso machine was a pleasant surprise. I love Italian coffee... and the fresh bread provided every morning at the gate was just the perfect way to start the day. The beach almost private, and the sea is crystal clear. Kids loved diving and watching the fish

The cleaning lady ( Meri ) was very friendly and helpful. She makes the best organic marmalade ( gliko ) :). The guy who helped with the cleaning of the garden was friendly and helpful too.

Thank you Dimitra ( the lovely owner ) for everything. You made our stay the prefect family holiday... I would highly recommend this property to everyone who wants to enjoy a relaxing holiday, in a place that you'll immediately feel like your home.

A house of great character, perfect for a group

  • 4 of 5

We arrived at Villa Effeli at night after a long drive. The magic of the house and Dimitra's welcoming made a fantastic first impression to every member of our party of 6 adults. The second impression did not disappoint: the place is full of wonderful surprises and has great atmosphere with a sense of the local vernacular. It is also very comfortable.The garden, terraces and beach are also great with a lot of personal touches.

We were not very lucky with the weather, but we still enjoyed a few extraordinary sunsets setting right between the islands of Paros and AntiParos, from the upper terrace.

Dimitra was always at hand to give us local recommendations and tips for our visits. The whole area has an fascinating past (ancient Greek, Roman, Ottoman etc...), so we were able to do very interesting sight seeing when it was not beach weather.Possibly because of the rain, there were quite a lot of mosquitoes along all that coast, but a bit of prevention works.

A place we would all like to return

Owner's Response: Thank you very much! You were great guests, too. Just a small correction: the islands are Paxos and Antipaxos:-) You were indeed quite unlucky with the weather (and the mosquitoes), very unusual for September- even for October or November- in Greece. You are always welcomed back!

The villa is located between the picturesque boat harbor of Lygia and the long sandy beach of Vrachos, between Preveza and Parga, Greece. The nearby coastline is dotted with long stretches of sand; beautiful coves and small beaches, accessible by boat or a short scenic drive away.
