We stayed at the villa one week in July. An it was really marvelous: great design, fantastic view, spacious, great swimming pool, the comfort in every single detail. It is very quite place with fantastic view. Just a few minutes by car to come to the marina of Lefkada. The owner (Argiry) was so kind and helpful in absolutely all our questions and wishes. She even managed to find for us a nice boat to travel around the island when everything was booked a long while ago. I would come back with great pleasure. My family had a great time!
House is the same as what you see on the pictures. I was even pleasantly surprised by the third room (the play room). Since there were no pictures of it I was expecting something not so comfortable and far from a proper bedroom, but I was very happy to see a great, spacious, doublebed bedroom with it's own bathroom. The only difference from the other two bedrooms were the smaller windows.
Owner was incredibly nice, ready to assist in any way possible. She went even further as to bring us surprises from time to time, check on us and be our 24/7 concierge! She did a lot of investment on the spot while we were there: new air conditioning, new sunbeds, umbrellas and bar stools. You can definitely see that she cares what kind of experience her guests have.
Overall, the house was tidy. We had a cleaning lady provided every day for two hours. Sheets and towels were brand new and changed every second day (again courtesy of the lovely owner). She had also instructed the cleaning lady to clean the outside area from leafs and dirt every single day as well as the pool.
The only problem was the cleaning lady herself. Most people would probably be fine with her work, but I like everything to be properly cleaned. So I was noticing she did not clean toilets, showers and sinks. She would go into the room to clean the floor, change the sheets and the towels and tidy up a little bit. The cleaning of the kitchen was the biggest mystery for me. She would put all the plates in the dishwasher and leave them there (not even switching it on). Most of the times trash wasn't even taken out. She would not clean stoves and kitchen cabinets.
The cleaning lady doesn't speak a word of English so it was useless to try and tell her anything.
However, I spoke to the owner lady about the cleaning of the bedroom bathrooms and she more or less fixed the problem straight away. Kitchen, we took care of it ourselves.
Location: house is 10 minute drive from the heart of Lefkada town (if you have a car suitable for off-road purposes, if not 15-20 minutes). We even walked to the town a few time, but most people don't do such long walks.
No neighbours, no nothing around! We loved the fact that the house is a bit isolated because it gave us the privacy and freedom for a great vacation.
Lefkada in my opinion, is the best town on the island for vacation. Very well balanced in terms of noise, things to do and everything you need.
The island itself has many places that could be visited. Service is great, drivers are crazy. The only real disappointment was the food. We are fans of Greek food so we had high expectations and couldn't wait to eat fresh Greek seafood in all the little restaurants, so typical of Greece. There were many restaurants but only a few were OK in terms of the food. In Lefkada the only one I would recommend is "Thymari".
We cooked at the house a lot. There are lots of supermarkets for such a small town, but I would recommend a main street going up from the round about at the marina (where the boats are). This street is full of bucher shops with FRESH meet and fish markets! Very nice!
Hope I was thorough! I would definitely recommend it!
