A wonderful house in a wonderful location
Last summer I spent two weeks holiday at Eleni's house in Geni. I can easily say that it was the most exiting experience I had in Greece (my favourite place to spend my summer holidays): Olive apartment is highly comfortable and has an amazing view of the sea and the eastern islands (Skorpios). Last but not least, Eleni and her friends welcomed and managed us in a frendly and careful way.
If you are planning to go there, just check that the height from the ground of your car, or the one you are going to rent, allows you to run a country road safely; you do not need a 4x4: a car van like a Berlingo or Fiorino will be ok.
Enjoy your stay there!
A place where your holiday becomes a dream
Korakias is a place where you can really relax and do what you mostly like.
Eleni and Tilemaco will take care of your needs and will make you feeling at home.
You can stay at the villa with a wonderfull view of Skorpios island from your apartament or from the swimming pool.
If you have a boat then you can really enjoy to have your boat parked in the private harbour and take it to visit places that without a boat you can not see or just use the boat to go to Nidri for a walk or to buy fish.
If you like to go outside for dinner then there are many places that you can reach in a very short time, where local people also go and where you can have excellent food at a more than reasonable price. The road form Korakias to the Geni will seem just part of the landscape and going back to Korakias in the night is quite easy to meet foxes.
It is 4 years that I go to Korakias with my family bringing our our boat from Italy and the long trip that we have to do to reach the place is fully compensated by the pleasant time spent over there an by the warm accolience of Eleni and Tilemaco.
A place well suited for a wonderful holiday
We stayed for 6 nights at Korakias, a group of 4, traveling with a compact car and it was a very very nice experience:
- the view was fantastic. We stayed on Olive apartment (if I remember well the name), at the first floor and from our terrace we saw every day dozens of small boats and a group of 3 very small forested islands
- Elena is a very nice person, we found at the arrival some food + fruits + wine in the fridge. She was always available and wanting help.
- we liked very much the fact that the villa is isolated
- the pool is great, very big, suitable if you do not know very well to swim
- you can go and swim also in the sea, only 30-40 steps away from the pool
Regarding the road from Geni to Korakias, first time was not so pleasant but if you don't drive a sport car it will be fine.
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.
