When looking for a villa holiday in Greece, Lefkada is the place to look. A small island with stunning views, endless picturesque towns with taverners galore and perfect small bays.
Although there are of course many great hotels on the island, Lefkada is ideal for the villa holiday. Villas ranging in all styles and prices are dotted around the coast. In this post I will tell you about my villa experience and why I think CV Villas are the best.
The ‘Beach House’ villa in Lefkada is a luxury property catering for up to ten people with five bedrooms, each ensuite. It has two living rooms, a gorgeous outside seating area and large private pool positioned with an uninterrupted view of the sea. It comes with the option of a chef and its own boat dock to help explore the island.
This villa is rented through CV Villas, they offer fantastic customer service, someone will meet you at the villa when you arrive, show you around and also book and trips or taverners for the week. CV have the most luxurious villa catalogue, you can be sure any villa you rent from them will be beautiful, clean and worth the expense.
Where to visit and what to do?
There is a small bustling town called Nidri a short drive or boat ride away, here you can eat and do your shopping, you can also rent a small boat which can be moored at your villa for the week, this is a must for visiting your local bays for snorkelling and general divine relaxation.
Across from your villa is Scorpios island, it is privately owned by a Russian billionaire and it is therefore not advised to moor on the island as its patrolled by armed guards. However I would recommend circling it on your small private boat, hidden in one of the bays is the owners jaw-dropping super yacht, a must see sight.
Lastly on your boat you will be able to visit Vathi on the lovely island of Meganisi, this small fishing port is the epitome of what you will be thinking of when you imagine a greek island port, with beautiful rustic tavernas and lovely boats to admire.
When staying in Lefkada you must visit these areas, I personally have never seen such beauty, I would argue that so far, this is my favourite place on Earth.
