Cherry consists of the entire ground floor (85 sq.m.) of the villa on the left hand side (when looking towards the sea). It has a very large and airy living/dining room, with an open plan fitted kitchen (with full cooking facilities), furnished with a sofa, 2 easy chairs and a dining table with 6 chairs. A double bedroom with French windows open onto a side balcony and a twin bedroom with private balcony to the other side. Family bathroom with bath/shower. All the rooms have large wooden French windows as well as windows with double panes and screens. Throughout Cherry the decor is pure white. Two tents in the front provides shade on the veranda and the patio furniture (a large extendable table with 6 comfortable chairs and a sunbed). Cherry, together with the other apartments, is sharing a tiled terrace surrounding the swimming pool for all the guest to use, sunbeds, sun umbrellas, 2 WCs and 1 shower.
Korakias retreat is set in 5000 sq. meters of organically managed land. The setting is without doubt one of the most beautiful on Lefkada, leading to a small beach in a sheltered bay, where you can moor your own hired boat on the private jetty. From the property there are breathtaking views across the sea to the tiny islands of Skorpios and Sparti, both formely owned by Onassis's granddaughter (and now by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev), and to Meganisi, the island left behind by time.
The accommodation at Korakias seaside retreat consists of 2 spacious apartments (85 sq. meters each) set in a villa, separated from the two other villas by gardens, patios, open areas and parking spaces. The villa has been positioned to take advantage of the magnificent views as well as to maximize the privacy of each apartment and is ideal for those who seek relaxation, tranquility and comfort. As well as being next to the sea, there is a swimming pool with a comfortable sunbathing deck. Depths of the pool range from 0.80 m to 1.80 m.
My family spent two weeks at Korakias.
We had oversized apartment (~75 sqm) for family of four with all we needed. In addition, big, deep shadowed balcony gives great view and location to spend relaxation moments with crickets symphony.
Landlord was invisible but handy at any occasion we needed them. Excellent location on nautical ways specially convenient if you have your boat.
One kilometer of forest road is good barrier against crowd of tourist in Geni and Nidri.
We enjoyed private bay for morning swimming.
Not convenient for night life.

Lefkada is connected to the mainland by a 50 meter long floating bridge making it, uniquely among islands, accessible by road. Lefkada’s rich vegetation has created a verdant paradise and its award-winning beaches have made it renowned around the world.
Korakia's secluded position is 2 km from the village of Geni with its popular waterside tavernas and 25 km from the main town of Lefkada.There are only a couple of other private villas within the vicinity. The Retreat is reached via an unmade country road (about 1000m) which needs to be navigated with care. This concerns the last part of the road, which leaves the main road, leading to Korakias. Some parts are covered with cement whilst some others have nothing but soil. If your car has an average clearance (i.e. if it is not very low like a sport car) and if you drive slowly, there is no problem.This however has the advantage of making Korakias an oasis of peace and tranquility.
