Our Two Bedroom, Two Bathroom Apartment Offers A Place To Relax.
After a career in theatre, specifically ballet, I saw sailing the Ionian Islands as a new and very contrasting challenge! Lucky to do this as an employee of an established holiday group a 'one summer job' turned into a 23 year career in ensuring clients enjoyed holidays full of special memories. My greatest reward is to see the pleasure I can bring by adding small thoughtful details that make a difference to a guests holiday experience. I can continue to do this with our private apartment, for our few special guests, outside of the mainstream holiday industry.
Mandy purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Mandy chose Aktio-Vonitsa
With mountains and farmland, sea and islands this area is so unique. The absolute peacefulness of the village defies the possibility of stress! The flat waters of the bay, with small beaches and rocky coastline, make exploring by SUP boarding, or sail/motor boating a dream, in summer and winter, and I will never tire of peering down into the clear, blue waters from my board or looking out across the bay after hiking to the hill tops behind the village!
What makes this Apartment unique
Planned as a place for family and friends to stay primarily, the apartment is set up as a home full of comfort. It suits a niche where high quality is desired for couples or small families. While the surrounding is quaint and traditional the apartment is modern with excellent fittings and style. The location, away from tour groups, allows true discovery of Greek life, but is in easy reach of year round activities and charmed places.

Another fabulous holiday
This apartment is truly our home away in this beautiful area of Greece. Mandy & Brad make staying here something to look forward to during the drab dark winter months.
The apartment has everything you need for a perfect holiday.
It is immaculately clean and well furnished. Plenty of towels (bring your own beach towels) shampoo and shower gel. Comfortable beds and pillows. Air con in both bedrooms and lounge/kitchen . A beautiful pool in quiet country surroundings. Will be back again for a fifth visit.
This is a fantastic property - beautifully decorated with everything we needed for a relaxing stay. Mandy took care of everything including checking whether we needed anything half way through our stay. The area is rustic and peaceful with lovely beaches.
It was a lovely apartment which was immaculate on arrival with lovely personal touches .
We loved our stay, such a beautiful situation and apartment.
It would have been really useful to have had mirrors in the bedrooms to allow us to dry hair etc .
A dishwasher would also have been fab as we are not used to doing dishes! We asked for more towels for hair etc which were kindly supplied. Also thank you for the speakers so we could have music 😁
Can't be faulted
We have just returned from our third holiday in this wonderful apartment. Please see our 2 previous glowing reviews. The cleanliness of the pool has now improved as the owners have taken over the maintenance of this and the communal gardens. Mandy and Brad were once again excellent hosts and supplied those little extras which made our holiday extra special.
Fantastic property - beautiful interior, spotlessly clean in a peaceful setting.
We loved our stay and plan to visit again! It is a lovely property, with a fresh modern design and all the amenities you could hope for. Brad and Mandy are great hosts, checking that we had everything we needed during our stay. The place is also spotlessly clean.
A Hidden Gem on the shores of the Ionian
We loved our stay in this wonderful apartment which provided everything we wished for and more in a holiday. Lovely large balcony which overlooks the pool, providing plenty of room for relaxation with day beds and chairs. The apartment was very well equipped and beautifully prepared personally, by Mandy & Brad. The pebble beach with crystal water is a few minutes stroll from the apartment and we had this virtually to ourselves for the duration of our stay. Brad & Mandy were on hand for anything we needed and even provided paddle boards for the family to use in the bay. Lefkada Town with its array of bars, restaurants and shops is just over half an hour drive away, the Archeron River falls 1.5 hours drive away, are a must and the fabulous Paleros with it's Yacht Club, Sensomare and other restaurants, just 10 minutes away. The beach a Vathiavali is 15 minutes away and has most spectacular crystal clear, turquoise waters. This area of Greece is as yet untouched by commercial tourism and is the most wonderful place to visit if like us you want to visit Greece and not purpose built resorts.
The local shoreline has shallow and warm water, with rocky outcrops and an interesting coastline which is perfect for Swimming & Snorkeling. The surrounding beaches are suitable for Windsurfing, Kite surfing, SUP boarding & Dinghy sailing, with calm clear seas in the morning and an offshore breeze which picks up in the afternoon. From the apartment there are many routes for Walking, Hiking and Mountain biking. (SUP boards & bikes can be available. Please enquire.)
The beautiful Islands of Meganisi and Kalamos are in view and only 16 km away The adjacent town of Palairos offers Yacht, Motor boat & Speed boat daily hires. It also has a good choice of beach front Tavernas and Bars. The lake north of the bay is a protected wetland that attracts seasonal migratory birds, with many Ancient sites and Castles the area has a fascinating history and much to explore.
The local market town of Levkas Island, (which is accessed via a bridge), is lively and bustling. It has many bars & restaurants and a thriving nightlife. Away from the coastline tradition survives and a more sedate pace of life continues as it has for centuries.
Update May 2015. A low cost airline now fly's into our local airport of Preveza (PVK), from London Gatwick, making access both easier and cheaper to this region.
