Myself, my partner and our 8 year old son travelled to Lefkas in early June for a week and chose this location due to the information and photographs on its website. After a fantastic week enjoying the island, it is hard to pick just a few features to rave about in this review but I will try!
White Stone Villa’s really are the perfect antidote for a stress free holiday, set up a sweeping Greek hillside with panoramic views of the landscape and coast, it is hard not to fall in love as soon as you arrive. Set just 30 minutes from the airport, we had no trouble finding it as Naya the owner had provided very accurate instructions to follow. The hosts Spiros, Naya and their son Orestise were there to greet us and run through every aspect of the villa and its facilities to make us feel at home, they even treated us to a light lunch and some island information which was very welcome after our journey! We were very impressed with the many thoughtful touches, including a comprehensive selection of food included at the villa for our arrival such as divine biscuits, fresh bread, milk, cereal, fruit, vegetable, tea bags…. , lovely bathroom cosmetics for our use and fresh towels and bed linen daily. It really was 5 star hotel standard in our own home and the attention to detail was truly exceptional. A very friendly maid came in every day to clean and tidy which made the villa feel exceptionally clean.
The villa itself has retained traditional features such as beautiful marble sinks and mosaic tiling alongside modern finishes such as ceiling fans and open plan rooms, there are also plenty of convenient facilities such as a dishwasher, DVD and CD player, WiFi, and power showers which helped us as a family relax when we wanted some down time. The villa boasts a beautiful infinity pool which seems to melt into the sunset and provides a shallow end for younger children yet us deep enough for adults to dive in to. Pool side loungers, a al fresco dining table and chairs and an outdoor shower make a day at the pool side very appealing! The local beaches are beautiful and when we went, very quiet, the only comment I would make is that for young children or buggies, this may be difficult for some of them to reach. The local town Agias Nikitas is about 0.5 km away and has 3 supermarkets and many tavernas all serving lovely fresh food for an evening meal.
This is a wonderful villa, in a wonderful location from a wonderful family, We had a fantastic time and felt so welcomed by the owners and their family that we will definitely be returning very soon. This really is a hidden gem and a 5 star experience in every way. ‘Telio’ (Perfect!)
