About the property

Top Villa, Secluded, Magnificent views, 4500 sqm land, Platform at Seacoast

In a stunning location just a few metres above the sea there is Villa Lefkada with Villa Marella located on 4,500 sqm. The style is modern, contemporary making the most of the light and views surrounding them. The views are incredible; every room of the villa' looking out to the same breathtaking vista, whilst the owners have made comfort a priority. Every room benefits from central air conditioning. The kitchen is fully equipped, with such an idyllic balcony to dine on, eating in will be a more than one off occurrence, despite the fact that the area boasts wonderful fish restaurants and taverns. The villa has a gorgeous swimming pool placed strategically in a 200 sqm terrace to benefit from the fantastic sea views, whilst still being private amongst the olive groves that surround the villas. Outdoor furniture is available. There is a pergola with outdoor kitchen, BBQ and sofa on the north side of the villa providing shadow in the afternoon when the pool side is still benefitting from the sun. There is a platform at the seacoast for exclusive use of Villa Marella to provide ultimate relaxation.

The island of Lefkada (Lefkas) is part of the Ionian Island group lying off the west coast of Greece. Lefkada is linked to the mainland by a causeway and the airport of Aktio (Preveza) on the mainland is about 25 kms from Lefkas Town. Our villa is located in an area of outstanding natural beauty where traditional life still prevails.

Lefkada combines thickly forested mountains, lush valleys and paradise beaches. From every corner of the island, you glimpse views that will stun you into silence. Despite all this, Lefkada for the most part, is not overly developed and attracts a more upmarket holidaymaker.

Lefkada has some of the best beaches in the whole of Greece. Long stretches of white sand, surrounded by impressive vertical cliffs and sea that is so turquoise that it is almost unreal.

Lefkada of Sports: The advantages of the natural environment and the weather conditions of Lefkada favour an alternative kind of vacation. The safe sea and the several small islands with natural resorts on the eastside of the island offer ideal conditions for sailing, while the modern facilities for anchorage make the place ideal. Diving, sailing and windsurfing are available at the watersportcentres in Nydri, Vasiliki and Ai Yiannis in the city of Lefkada

Authentic Lefkada: Calm and charming from the first moment with the true, genuine, warm Lefkadian smile, it welcomes those who have chosen Lefkada for their destination. Tradition and development go hand in hand, and visitors enjoy the hospitality, entertainment and adventure.

Lefkada, the best choice for your holiday... : A short visit was all that was needed for Aristotle Onassis to find himself in love with Lefkada. He bought the island Scorpios opposite of Nydri, and there he created his personal paradise, which he enjoyed with the Kennedy family, Maria Callas, Churchill and other celebrities. For the same reasons and all that you can discover yourself we have decided to build our villa on Lefkada, the island that enchants...

Villa outside Syvota ,lefkas

  • 5 of 5

We had a superb 2 weeks .fantastic views of the Ionian Sea and islands. Quiet location with interest on the water,watching the boats go by.

The villa was spacious and ideal for us and 4 teenagers.We could also stroll into Syvota or have a short car journey.some small up hills .

The caretakers made themselves available to us and asked us regularly if all was ok,which it was.

The villa was well equipped and the extra fridge on the lower level was great .

The owners provided us with all the information promptly and in short was superbly organised. Highly recommend and good value in August school holidays.

The villa is fantastic, we spent two unforgettable weeks at villa Marella with our kids.The view is absolutely breathtaking. We spent our summer here for the last two years and really enjoyed it every time. Our children love the pool.It is such a special place, the private platform by the sea really makes this place unique. We hope to come back here soon.

a wonderful place...

  • 4 of 5

The villa is a perfect place to spend your holiday,the wiew and the landscape in general are breath taking,but the most beautiful think I must say is the pool,it impressed me the most.

the owners and the administrators of the villa are great people and they will try to help you no matter what is your problem.

We were at the villa at the end of august 2011 and the only problem we encountered was the weather ,it was very hot but the water saved us all the times.

I would recommand this villa to every one who loves nature and water.

Excellent villa, amazing island

  • 5 of 5

We've had three weeks holidays in Villa Marella. All of us, from my 2,5 yo son to 71 yo mother-in-law enjoyed the villa and Lefkada. Villa is spacious, well planned, well equipped, has a large balcony with really uninterrupting and amazing seaview. Every time we had lunch or dinner at the villa we did it there.

One of the great advantages of the property is a private platform for sunbathing and swimming. It is great to be the only one swimmer in the sea.

As for Lefkada - the island is extremely beautiful with different kinds of beaches on every taste, mountanious valleys and villages.

I recommend this villa to anyone seeking high-quality holidays at the blue Ionian sea.

Fantastic villa Marella in Lefkas

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in Villa Marella, Lefkas, with 2 other families and spent a fantastic time there! Not only does the villa offer a fantastic view over the cruising sail ship and the other neighbouring islands, but the villa itself is amazing. Its 4 bedrooms were enough to accommodate 6 adults and 6 children; the terraces and swimming pool enable each to have its separate space; the common areas were big enough to allow for big breakfasts and dinners.

The villa is in a very quiet location, but very close to beautiful Sivota, with its many taverns and quaint port. It is also a good base to explore the many amazing beaches of the island.

The description was perfectly accurate, the villa was very well maintained, all the appliances were working well. I will definitely recommend this property to my friends!

Overall, a fantastic experience!

The Island of Lefkas has always amidst discussion as to whether or not it really is an island, as only joined by a causeway to the mainland. Ironically enough, once actually there, you feel more the pace and the authenticity of island life than many of the more popular island destinations. ‘Traditional’ is a word that is widely used to describe Lefkas, although a trip to the villages will ensure spying at least a few donkeys carrying firewood, elderly ladies in traditional dress carrying baskets on their heads and traditional working villages, you actually don’t have to go very far to see such sights. Lefkas boasts not only some of the best beaches in Europe, Porto Katsiki and Agiofillis, it also has wonderful little coves and crystal clear waters to choose from. Scorpios is just one of the little islands that gather around the bay, notorious for its schools of dolphins. In the morning you will surely watch the spectacular sunrise while the evening you will enjoy the many fish taverns.

Other Activities: Vasiliki is a windsurfers paradise.
