About Spyridoula Katopodi

I was born in Lefkada and raised in Athens and worked there for 35 years. Simultaneously i was working every summer in Lefkada as the owner of the villas. In 2004 i had the desire to go back to my family roots and live their permanently to manage my family business.

I feel that I made the most wonderful choice of my life because not only does it make me happy, but also gives me the opportunity to share the beauty of the place with all of you.

Spyridoula Katopodi purchased this apartment in 2011

Spyridoula Katopodi purchased this villa in 1996

Why Spyridoula Katopodi chose Lefkada

Beacause it is build in one of the most beautifull place of yhe east side of Lefkada. It was something that my parents start fixing and when I grow up i had the erge to build something for me and for my kids to have to spend summers. Everythis has been made with love in order to become our dream place.

What makes this villa unique

It is build on the hill side which provides it with a panoramic view of the landscape. You can see the forest around you but in the same time you have a magnificent view of the sea and the Princes islands of Lefkada, one of them is the famous island of Skorpios.

Then you can walk down to the swiming pool or the sea walking through a path full of flowers and greenery.

You can relax, rest creat beautifull memories and at the same time you are so close to the cosmopolit village of Nidri and at the same time you can indulge the tranquillity of the place.

Fabulous location, excellent villa with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mandarin Villa. From the time we booked the Villa the owner, Spyridoula was very responsive to our many questions and throughout our stay was friendly and always available if needed. She was very flexible in accommodating changes to the number in our party during our holiday.

The Villa is very clean and well equipped. The pool and beach/jetty provide different alternatives for swimming and sunbathing.

We chose Korakias Villas to combine sailing with a base on shore and we were able to moor a 35ft sailing boat within swimming distance of the pontoon. Our sailing friends even moored overnight in the bay on one occasion.

Other reviews comment on the road to the Villa which does require some care as it is rough and steep in places, however, we managed 4 adults with luggage in a VW Polo without too much difficulty.

There are a number of nice restaurants in Geni which is only 5 minutes away. Alternatively Nidri is less than 15 minutes away by car or boat.

Overall, a great Villa in a delightful, peaceful location with a perfect host and from our point of view an excellent choice and we would not have changed a thing.

Excellent Holiday

  • 4 of 5

Great views, lovely location. Villas clean and tidy and the host's very pleasant and accommodating. Would highly recommend booking here. Only problem is the drive to the villas - not for the faint hearted.

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs Carinna V., Thank you for your review, it was nice to meet you all. Regarding the road, is not up to our hand because is a public road and is in the descration of the islands administration to build it, but that was the reason why we have informed you in the first mail of our communication about the roads condition, that is 1km of unmade country road.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

The location and views are amazing, we had the most perfect holiday. The villa is very clean and well equipped. Really recommend hiring a boat, it was a lot of fun and a fab way of getting around the island. There are a lot of taverns by the water with stunning views and food.

Beautiful location and a very comfortable stay.

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we decided to take our holiday here. It was our first time in Greece and we got really lucky first time finding this accommodation. We stayed in the downstairs apartment in Mandarin, which is spacious, comfortable, extremely well maintained and fully equipped (including even scented candles and a sewing box!). The track up to the house is pretty rough, but manageable and is lit at night, so you don't have to worry about driving back from the restaurants in Nydri. There is a very generous welcome pack with enough to make yourself a simple meal if you arrive hungry without any shopping. The location for us is a dream come true. We didn't feel the need to leave the place too often, it was so relaxing and we really needed the rest. You can start the day with a lovely early morning swim in the little bay, relax on your huge terrace watching the tourist boats, ferries and the occasional super yacht, take a stroll in the garden or along the track, play with the cats, sunbathe next to the pool, do a spot of fishing off the little dock, or even join in with some of the pleasurable chores (a bit of gardening, or peeling the walnuts!). Help yourself to some veg from the garden and light the barbecue to cook some fresh fish or some fabulous local lamb. Spyridoula is a wonderful hostess, making us feel very welcome and bringing us all sorts of delicious edible gifts.

You can rent a little boat, which is well worth doing to enjoy the wonderful colours of the water and potter around the bay. It felt really safe and it's easy to pull in, tie up and stop for lunch over on Meganisi Island, for example. Really, we have stayed in many, many holiday rentals in different countries and normally pay around the same amount. Some have been really lovely, but this place outstrips them all. Loved it.

What a find - wonderful place for a relaxing break. Cannot be faulted.

  • 5 of 5

The welcome from the owners is second to none. The property is very equipped, spotlessly clean, peaceful location with great views particularly at sunrise and sunset. Spyridoula and her family are wonderful hosts - from the welcoming pack of essentials to the regular presents of grapes, fresh vegetables from the garden and their own wine and oil.

The location is peaceful yet still accessible - some may not like the last part of the road but this didn't bother me - I had been advised about this and therefore hired a 4x4 and had no problems. The swimming pool is great with a well placed terrace to get the best of the sun all day. The little beach gives direct access to the sea for swimming, boating or just sitting listening to the rhythmic break of the waves.

If you want a very peaceful place to chill on Lefkas but with easy access to Nydri, Geni and their restaurants/facilities this is the place for you. You will not be disappointed.

Korakias Villas

  • 5 of 5

Great location for a relaxing get away. Nice pool. We rented a boat that was great fun to tool around to caves and snorkeling in coves. Very good restaurants. I have a bad back so I needed to sleep on the sofa but the couch was very comfortable.
