Guestbook comments from the owner

In August my family and I spent a wonderful holiday on the Island of Lefkada in this villa.The nearest beaches are easily accessible by car in five minutes without parking traumas.The villa and garden are even better than the presentation: the property is secluded; the villa itself has been totally refurbished both inside and outside, complete with everything we needed and more.The beautiful swimming pool, lined with small mosaic tiles, was a fantastic alternative for the children.I highly recommend it for an unforgettable family holiday.I must not forget to thank Anna Maria and George for their perfect hospitality: they were always available to assist in any way whatsoever.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for two weeks, got back yesterday. We have a baby and a 3 year old and this place was ideal. We weren't overlooked so had plenty privacy but were only a few minutes drive from vasiliki.

The pool is wonderful and the decking is shaded so perfect for the children. The upset deck where the BBQ is catches the sun all day so if you're a sun lover you can lounge up there.

The inside of the villa is stunning. The attention to detail is wonderful, you get a different feeling from a villa that was built and used as a home than you do from one from a big company. The photos really don't do it justice. He provided a cot and bed rails plus a high chair too. The house is big enough to go with friends in a group too. We didn't need to use the loft area but it was beautiful.

George, the owner, is a lovely man. Very helpful and kind, my son thought he was the bees knees. He even brought us homemade cake and eggs and chillis from his mother's garden.

All in all we had a perfect break. I'm going to recommend this place to everyone I know.

Outstanding stay at the beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is even better than its photos. Loaded with amenities and everything better than specified. We had a great stay and George was incredibly helpful and gracious with us. We were 8 people all comfortable and immersed in luxury. I would highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting to be near the sea, but still enjoying peace and quiet and an incredible surrounding with the perfect climate. In one word-perfect.

Even better than it looks!

  • 5 of 5

As I said in the title the villa and the location is even better than it looks.

We were a group of six persons, three couples around 30 years old with no children. We stayed at this beautiful villa for 11 nights.

Let's start with the location which is in the quiet village of Kontarena, 3-4 km from Vasiliki (actually the villa is on a hill above the village and has a stunning view). By the way, before going to Lefkada island, I thought Nydri is the best resort, but after visiting them, Vasiliki is better in all regards (restaurants, pubs, shops).

From the villa you can easily reach any beach or destination in Lefkada by car. A car is needed anywhere you'd stay on the island since the tourist attractions are spread all over it.

About the villa itself I can only say good things. It is very clean, you have everything you need, including wi-fi, the rooms and bathrooms are big and comfortable. It also has a very big loft with a separate bathroom which is huge.

The swimming pool is big enough and very clean (we were also able to jump into the water).

There is also a barbecue we used twice that is located somewhere above the pool, on a small terrace with a big table near.

Last but least I would also want to say something about the owner, George. He was very kind in making the whole stay very pleasant. He recommended us all the things that need to be visited or done in Lefkada island and even gave us cooking directions since we were struggling with some lobsters.

I personally want to thank him again, because if it weren't for him i couldn't have solved a problem with my car.

Before choosing Nickelly I almost knew by heart all the villas in Lefkada (I spent a lot of time on homeaway.co.uk) and after beeing there we were confirmed that we made the right choice.

Amazing stay - full marks all round!!

  • 5 of 5

We only stayed for one week but wish it could have been longer! The villa was absolutely amazing in every aspect - the photos do not do it justice. The owner, George was truly sincere and helpful - he gave us lots of useful advice and information on the local area and the the greek way of life. He also spoke very good english which was good taking into account that we don't speak any greek. Vasiliki is approximately a 10 minute drive and has everything you require from good bakeries, a selection of good tavernas and a supermarket. The island is traditionally greek and has some of the most amazing unspoilt beaches. We would certainly consider returning to this villa. It was also a bonus for the villa to have an modern bathroom drainage system like the ones in the UK - no bins necessary!! Full marks all round!!!

Fantastic stay in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this outstanding villa - George and Anna were a pleasure to meet and were extremley helpful; recommending places to eat and visit. We (adults and kids alike) would all thoroughly recommend this property, island and owners. The villa is beautifully appointed and very comfortable. We really enjoyed eating outside with the fabulous views of the mountains. The pool was perfect for our family of teenagers and adults and the garden is pretty and very well maintained. The villa is well situated for local amenities but is rural enough to be quiet and very relaxing, and it's elevated situation often provided a welcome breeze. Definitely a place to return to!

Location

Car: necessary

Lefkas is one of the Ionian Islands and is the only island linked to mainland Greece by a bridge passing over a narrow channel. It is a mountainous and fertile area full of dense vegetation. It is a quiet popular holiday destination but, despite that fact, it has kept its authentic and traditional colours which charm the visitors. The island has a lot to offer: impressive landscapes, long golden sandy beaches, traditional villages, a charming capital, archeological sites and museums and a variety of activities such as sailing, windsurfing, cycling, scuba-diving, walking, or just relaxing at the beach.
