Villa Jasmine is located on the west coast of Lefkas, at the northern tip of the island close to the village of Tsoukalades. Special care has been taken by the owners when designing the villa to ensure uninterrupted sea views from a variety of stone paved terraces and from the large balcony extending the length of the villa. The villa is comfortably furnished and all rooms open up onto either the terrace or the balcony and have unspoilt views reaching out all the way north to Paxos and Corfu. On the lower level there are two west facing bedrooms with large french windows that open out onto the stone paved terrace. The Twin Bedroom is fully air conditioned and has its own en suite bathroom with shower enclosure. The Double Bedroom is fully air conditioned and has a large double bed plus a single bed with an en suite bathroom with bath and shower. On the upper level villa Jasmine has a utility room with a washing machine for your use during your holiday and ample storage for suitcases etc. The west facing Double Bedroom on the upper level is fully air conditioned and has its own en suite bathroom with shower enclosure; the bedroom opens out onto the large and comfortable balcony with stunning sea views and amazing sunsets. All rooms have mosquito nets.

The open plan kitchen/dining and lounge is also on the upper level and large french doors open out onto the balcony for you to enjoy late breakfasts under the shade of the pergola. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need on your holiday including all cooking utensils, herbs and spices plus a generous food hamper to welcome you to villa Jasmine. Our hamper includes items such as fresh bread, fresh fruit, tomatoes, cucumber, soft drinks, milk, orange juice, wine and beer.

The swimming pool (9m x 5m and 1.1m to 1.9m depth) is set amongst beautiful flowers and shrubs and is protected from the wind that occasionally picks up on this side of the island. There is a large stone paved terrace by the pool backed by natural rockery and garden planted with Mediterranean flowers, shrubs and trees.

The sleepy village of Tsoukalades is set amongst olive groves on the hills of the north - west coast of Lefkas. The village itself is charming and traditional with narrow streets separating the small houses and there is a gorgeous old cafeneion where the locals meet to chat and drink coffee. Tsoukalades has a handful of small tavernas and restaurants, an excellent bakery, a couple of cafes and a mini market. There are two beautiful and almost private beaches about 3 minutes drive from the village, Kaminia and Gialou Skala; one of the most stunning beaches on the west coast, Pefkoulia, is about 5 minutes drive and Lefkas Town with its Ionian architecture, abundance of shops and exquisite restaurants is about 10 minutes drive. Tsoukalades is famous for the gorgeous sunsets and the most spectacular views of the Ionian; on a clear day the views extend all the way across the sea northwest to Paxos and Corfu!

Lefkas Town, 5 mins drive, is the main commercial centre and has the best shopping facilities on the island. There is a quayside road south of the causeway entrance with a busy marina. The High Street runs through the centre of town and is also known as the ‘Pazari’, this is the main street for shopping and cafes. A mid-morning coffee in the square is ideal for a break and a perfect opportunity to see the Lefkadians in ‘action’! The architecture has been mainly influenced by the Venetians and the post Byzantine traditions but also by the Turkish and the English. The houses in the main part of the town are two storey buildings, very closely packed, without yards or gardens and with narrow alleyways running between them. It is lovely to walk around the back streets of the town where you are also more likely to see the typical Lefkadian houses wrapped in brightly painted corrugated iron.

Ligia, 12 mins drive, is a pretty little coastal village on the east coast with an abundance of great fish tavernas located on the beachfront and on the picturesque harbour. There are a few cafes and bars in the village some of them right on the beach. Nidri, 20 mins drive, is the primary holiday resort on Lefkas. There are a variety of tavernas, restaurants and cafes here, also a handful of bars and a couple of nightclubs. The majority of shopping and tourist facilities are on the main street. On the seafront, known as the ‘Paralia’, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Pringiponissa islands - amongst which is Scorpios, owned by the Onassis family. Cruises and Ferryboats operate from here to Cephalonia and Ithaca.

Agios Nikitas,5 mins drive, is a pretty little village surrounded by fabulous beaches such as Pefkoulia, Kathisma and Kalamitsi. It has adequate tourist facilities, many tavernas, restaurants and a few shops. The nucleus of the village has been placed under preservation order, thus maintaining the traditional Ionian ambience.

Vassiliki, 35 mins drive, in the south is a self-contained tourist resort with a full range of facilities. The harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes and the main street has a fair number of shops. Vassiliki is of particular interest to windsurf fans. Many sailing companies operate from here and you may hire windsurf boards and catamarans on a daily or hourly basis. Vassiliki has a ferry port operating a service to Cephalonia and Ithaca.

Milos Beach – Agios Nikitas

(5 mins drive) To get to it you must go to Agios Nikitas and take a sea taxi operating a taxi service to and from Milos departing from the beach at the end of Agios Nikitas Main Street.

Kalamitsi Beach

(approx. 20 mins drive). One of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkas. Fine shingle dotted with rock formations and a long stretch of pure white shingle beach. There are two small cafés down here and not much with regards to sun beds and beach facilities.

Porto Katsiki

(approx. 45mins drive) Porto Katsiki, the best known beach, is today considered one of the most outstanding in the whole of Europe. This is a beach of exceptional beauty at the most southern tip of the island. A gorgeous shingle beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water. There are cafes and tavernas at the beach and sunbed facilities on the beach.


(approx. 35mins drive). 296 or so, steps lead down to this stunning beach virginal fine shingle beach. One of the top beaches in the Ionian Sea this is a must for visitors to Lefkas island. As with Porto Katsiki it is a gorgeous beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water.

Motorboat Hire

Hiring a motorboat can open up a realm of uninhabited beaches and coves. The motorboat includes the provision of a map of the boating area, buoyancy aids, flares, oars and anchors. Many small coves on the east coast are excellent snorkeling areas where you can enjoy the local marine life such as Sea Urchins, Sea cucumbers, Hermit Crabs, and when overturning stones or rocks perhaps you will be lucky to find a Brittle Starfish or even an Octopus!

Lovely Villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa, as described, little put off to start with the snake repellent pots around the garden but in the never saw a snake even though we hunted for them! Need a car. The local cafes in the village were far cheaper than the main town or the seafront cafes and actually best quality food too so well worth a visit. Villa well equipped with technology which was helpful. Lovely place would return

A real find quiet, secluded, amazing views

  • 4 of 5

Cannot recommend this villa enough, location and views as described, quiet and secluded. Very clean with mid week top up, local shops and good coffee and bread shop run by very friendly proprietor. 10 minutes from Lefkas town with many restaurants and bars. We have booked again for 2017.

Beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We've just got back from a ten day stay at Villa Jasmine and we both said it's been years since we've enjoyed a holiday so much.

The villa is well-furnished, spotlessly clean and has a stunning location.

The pool is one of the best features as it's completely private and is big enough for serious swimmers to get some lengths in.

The front patio area is beautifully arranged and the amazing view over the sea means you can while away hours just sitting and staring.

We can't recommend Villa Jasmine highly enough and would love to be able to return again soon.

Wonderful find

  • 4 of 5

Villa Jasmine made a brilliant introduction to Lefkada for our family group of 7 last June. The property was exactly as per the description and photos, with the village and local tavernas within easy walking distance of an evening. The property was really clean and very well maintained too, with weekly change of bedding & towels etc.

The pool is a great size for some serious swimming, with ample sunbathing space all around. The views from the back of the property over the sea were amazing, especially at sunset when there were some incredible photo opportunities to be had. There are numerous lovely beaches close by including one just below the villa about ten minutes drive away down a lovely twisted track.

Our only difficulty was the kitchen and fridge space which was on the minimal side catering for 7 of us, but we managed by putting beers and drinks in cool boxes stocked with ice which worked fine. We would love to come back this year and can't imagine staying anywhere else, however since even more of us want to come this time the only question is how can we accommodate a few more bodies - perhaps a sofa bed in the living area could be a brilliant addition ?!
