We stayed in Villa Acqua in July 2017 and had a great 2 weeks. The villa is fantastic - very well kept, well equipped and extremely comfortable. The housekeeper does a great job, popping in every morning to water the plants - lovely polite lady, and very unobtrusive. The villa was cleaned every 3 to 4 days with a full linen and towel change (at no extra cost) which is quite unusual in a self-catering villa! The location was great too - within walking distance of a small (but well stocked) supermarket, bakery and a traditional taverna. Both Vassiliki and Syvota are very close by, but I would definitely recommend a car!
Lefkas is beautiful - the greenest, hilliest greek island we have every been to and a drive through the middle of the island is a must for the stunning views.
All round a great holiday - cheap daily boat hire in Syvota, amazing taverna views and sunsets on the west coast, paragliding from Rachi bar, Exanthia (with sensational sunset view!) - an island not to be missed!
My wife, daughter (age 20) and myself stayed in Lefkas G-Villas from May 21st to June 4th and fell in love with the place.
The Vila was spotless, well maintained and in a suitable location for both day trips around the island and for places to eat just short distances. Though we did spend several days just lounging around the Vila and pool.
Nefeli, our host, met us on arrival showed us around the Vila and then proceeded to annotate a local map of all the recommended places to visit for shops, restaurants and beaches. That map became our guide for the week and Nefeli gave us her phone number so that we could call\whatsapp her if we had any questions, which we need and she was most helpful.
There is a local supermarket, baker, and a few taverna’s close by.
Lafkada itself is a beautiful island with so many amazing beeches and towns. Vasiliki, Nidri, Lefkada town itself to name but three and if you want to sail, paddleboard, snorkel, windsurf or scuba dive these is an abundance of choices.
Having a car is essential. Renting mopeds for a day is a wonderful way to see the island and explore beaches inaccessible by car.
I Would highly recommend Lefkada as a holiday destination and Lefkas G-Villas as a place to stay and when asked, by Nefeli, on departure what could she do to make the location and Vila even better, not one of us could come up with a criticism, not even a construction one. We just found the place wonderful and would love to return some day.
This is an amazing place! Wood and stone in a perfectly decorated Villa... Extremely clean, fully equipped, unforgettable comfort, with a lovely clean pool, privacy and a breathtaking view of an endless green landscape!!! We 'll be definitely back!!
We stayed here for two weeks and after traveling to many parts of the world ...we found this quite unique villa, beautifully furnished to a high standard,with A/C in all rooms and all you need for a perfect holiday...not to mention the lovely clean pool ...night lights and such an ambience of the villa we just loved it..then as a bonus you get Nefeli and her Mum (the owners) who are so nice and so helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay extra special just adds plus points all over..also we have never stayed in a place that gets cleaned and fresh linen every 3 days.. So.. The location... The tranquillity.. The beautiful scenery ...the local people and way of life and the owners ..with beaches near by makes us definitely to return very soon ! Thank you Nefeli and Mum for everything !
Superb holiday on lefkada in gorgeous villa Acqua, what a fabulous 2 weeks we had (Aug 16).
The Villa has everything you need, peaceful countryside location, fully equipped Kitchen (although we ate out most of the time), nice bedrooms with air conditioning throughout and WiFi to keep your children entertained!
Someone commented that the pool was on the small side but is was perfect size for our 2 boys (ages 7 & 4) and perfect for a dip to cool down during the hot sunny days.
The pool has nice sun loungers and there is plenty of shady places to escape the sun if you want to.
Very friendly host (Nefeli) who can give you local insight on places to visit etc. The Villa and pool are cleaned twice a week, the plants are watered daily early in the morning but it is not intrusive at all and as a bonus you can help yourself to the fresh tomatoes/peppers for your greek salads.
There is a supermarket and superb bakery (baclava to die for...) 5 mins walk away.
I would recommend a car is needed as the resorts where all the Tavernas are a few miles away: Vasiliki (5-10mins drive), harbour with shops, bars, Tavernas, water taxis to beaches on West coast / Sivota (5-10mins), lovely harbour with a few shops, bars, Tavernas / Nydri (10-15 mins), big harbour with lots of everything! this is where the larger ferries to the other Islands go from.
How to sum up this great family holiday? We'll be back. Looking forward to another great holiday there in Summer 2017!
