Villa “petit paradis” is about a spacious, modern, warm and colorful 320 m2 villa, built, renovated and maintained with love, high exigencies and attention to detail. But mostly, it is about a wonderful villa situated in a unique, totally private verdant and unspoiled peninsula property of 15 hectares.
Disposing one of the few private large-scale properties open for guests in Lefkada, we put our best to indulge you in the high standards of contemporary hospitality. We offer: true privacy and complete peace and quiet, enthrallment by the surrounding luxuriant nature, an impressive infinity pool, a private 1400m long seafront on the property’s perimeter, including a specially created paved space perfect for swimming, relaxing, sea sports, boating, snorkeling, etc., as well as stunning panoramic views of the sea and the nearby islands from the many yards. And, of course, a big 320m2 villa which can host up to 10 guests.
Being spacious, comfortable, cosy and cheerful, villa petit paradis is a typical example of modern architecture that combines discreet luxury and effortlessness, in perfect harmony with the natural environment that surrounds it.
The “petit paradis” property is essentially the peninsula formed between the Sivota bay and the Gulf of Poros. It overlooks an area surrounded by a host of large and small islands, among which are Ithaca and Kefalonia. The property is adjacent to a smaller peninsula owned by the Onassis family (whose estate also includes the Lefkadian islands of Sparti and Scorpios, just a short distance from “little paradise”).
The villa is placed on top of this peninsula, enjoying stunning panoramic views of the Sivota bay, Poros, Kefalonia and a host of little islands.
The property has a 1,4 km seafront, which includes a private platform/jetty created for swimming and mooring of boats and 4 kilometers of roads and paths ideal for walking, hiking, cycling and exploring.
Villa “petit paradis” is the ideal summer retreat for guests looking to unwind in complete privacy and get close to peaceful natural scenery, while in the comfort, coziness and convenience of a well-thought-of, tasteful and arty residence.
“Petit paradis" is the ideal match not only for nature lovers, but also for those who wish to pass their vacations in tranquility, hanging around in the breeze of the many yards, for those who like to sunbathe, to swim in crystal clear waters, read, sip cocktails or have siestas by the pool.
The more adventurous and curious can organize little getaways in nature, engage in water sports such as windsurfing in the famous Vasiliki beach, or fishing, diving, snorkeling and boating in the private beach.
Petit paradis could be the launching pad, as well, for visits to the breathtaking beaches of the west side of Lefkada (Mylos, Kathisma, Kalamitsi, Egkremnoi, Porto Katsiki to name just a few), or for gourmet visits, night life, wine tours and local shopping in the quality boutiques, restaurants, cafes and bars of the nearby villages of Sivota, Vasiliki and Poros.
About Sivota, Lefkada: Sivota is a village in southern Lefkada, located inside an idyllic bay. The names are Homeric; in fact, Sivota is where Dörpfeld places the point of Ulysses’s return to (Homeric) Ithaca. Sivota is a tasteful village with fishing and sailing tradition. Its renovated and enlarged marina offers ideal conditions for safe mooring not only for sailing boats and zodiacs, but also for large recreational yacht boats. It has restaurants offering delicious fresh fish, traditional greek and italian cuisine, cafes, bakeries, breakfast and snack bars, as well as varied night life with live concerts, themed events and cocktail and lounge bars. Supermarkets and local little shops offer the visitors a good local and international choice of goods for all their groceries and appliances.
The distance to Sivota village is about 45 minutes on foot and less than 10 minutes by car. The distance to the private seafront-harbor inside the property is 10-15 minutes on foot or less than 5 minutes by car. Aktion International airport is 15mins by car from the city of Lefkada and about 45 mins from the property.
A daily ferry route to Kefalonia and Lefkada leaves from Vasiliki village, which is only 6km away (or 15min by car). For practical reasons, the rental of a car is recommended for the duration of your stay. All of the internal roads are dirt roads.
About Lefkada: It is noted that Lefkada, the “island of poets and legends,” is also the only Greek island directly accessible by road and has an excellent internal road network. It is 350 kilometres (4 hours by car) from Athens and just an hour and a half from Igoumenitsa, while the international airport at Aktion is just 15 minutes from the island. As an Ionian island, Lefkada is adjacent to Italy, which is an enormous relative advantage, as borne out by the large number of Italians (and other Europeans) who vacation there and by the innumerable touristic boats that visit it. In Lefkada Town there is a large modern marina that provides mooring for touristic boats. Lefkada is a verdant and geologically polymorphic island with breathtaking beaches, and is surrounded by a host of other islands. The cultural and artistic life of the island is intense.
