Perks for the Parents

This spacious villa in a quiet village on the Ionian island of Lefkada is well set up for families with a flower-filled garden, plenty of space and mountain bikes for children aged 6 and up. It sleeps up to 12 people, usually up to 6-8 adults and then another 4-6 children or babies, and is spacious with great cooking amenities. Both cribs can fit in the master bedroom. There are 2 baths with bathtubs and showers and an extra double shower for family use. The closest beach is a 5-minute drive.

Why Kids Love it

The safe, fenced-in garden is a great place to play; the quiet village is nearly traffic-free so mountain biking is great fun and older children and teens can use them around the valleys, vineyards and olive groves. Five mountain bikes for kids aged 6-7 and older are provided. The villa is close to some wonderful sandy beaches along with Vasiliki Bay which has watersports, including dinghy sailing and windsurfing.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week. Prices are based on 8 guests, and the host charges an extra charge per night per guest up to 12. Baby cribs are free. The villa is family friendly with a gate on the top of the staircase and a standby one for the bottom of the stairs which can be fitted on request. Equipment provided for kids includes books, DVDs, toddler toys, strollers, high chairs, picnic table and play mat and mountain bikes for older kids. Lefkada is an Ionian island but is linked by bridge to mainland Greece and is a 1-hour plane ride from Athens. Car hire recommended. WiFi access included.

About the Location

The villa is in a quiet village on Lefkada, with few cars around so kids can play in the streets safely or explore on mountain bikes. Kids can get up close with the local chicken, roosters and donkeys too. The property is close to the best beaches of Lefkada which are also considered as some of the best in Greece and some of which are voted as some of the top in the world. The closest is a 5 minute drive away, via small vineyards, an olive grove and down the mountain all the way until the beach.

Accommodation Details

This 3 bedroom villa is split into 2 levels, with all bedrooms on the upper floor. Each bedroom has a en-suite bathroom/shower room. There is a master bedroom, a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. A large wooden staircase leads to the lower floor which has an open plan sitting room and large fully equipped kitchen with large dining table.

Style Notes

The house is a 150-year old stone mansion recently decorated to high standards, respecting the local architecture. It is a unique mansion, spacious, bright, stylishly decorated, with all modern amenities. White walls, wooden beams and a unique wooden staircase are the key features.We love the garden, the spacious bedrooms and the open plan living space downstairs.

My husband and I love travelling. We have traveled around the world and love places such as Latin America. We have lived in NY and London, whereas we currently live in Greece together with our 6-year old daughter and 5-year old son. We own two vacation rentals, one in the island of Lefkada, Ionian Islands and one in Ios island, Cyclades.

Lefkada, Greek Islands

Quiet villages and some of the best beaches in Greece

This Ionian island is linked to the Greek mainland by a bridge but it might be easiest to reach it by air all the same - it’s only an hour from Athens. Expect fantastic beaches for watersports, white sand beaches and hillsides of bright blooms. Take a boat trip to nearby islands, visit caves or just relax and play in the sun.
