“6 cliff-top villas for 2-8 with private infinity pools and uninterrupted views of the turquoise Ionian Sea. Sunset never looked so good”
There are 3 big bedrooms in each villa, tranquil havens designed to maximise the nautical views. Splashes of colour from original artworks accent cool, minimal lines and crisp linens. Ensuite bathrooms have rain-head showers and REN toiletries.
The ground-floor double opens onto the pool, perfectly positioned for a pre-breakfast splash; while the second-floor double takes pole position with a big balcony and that beautiful sea vista. A bird’s eye view awaits on the top floor where a diagonal window looks down onto the stunning coastline. This room is a double or twin, and the larger villas (3, 4, 5, 6) can fit an additional 2 single beds up here, making it a perfect hideout for kids.
The ground-floor living area is open plan; a kitchen leads onto a comfortable living room where a sofa and 2 armchairs are arranged around a home-cinema system. A wood-burning stove is a treat for autumn evenings.
If you’ve been clever, you’ve sent your grocery list ahead of you so the kitchen is magically stocked with provisions upon your arrival - there’s no extra charge for this wonderful service. A dishwasher, fridge/freezer, hob and oven are at your disposal and there’s a Nespresso machine. High stools cluster around the kitchen island but you’re bound to spend most of your meals fighting for the view around the table on the outdoor deck.
There’s no catering on site but there are a number of tavernas in Athani (5 mins' drive), as well as a supermarket. Lefkatas is perched on the cliff at the far end of the village and dishes up local specialities, grilled meat and fresh fish - we recommend the lobster pasta. Closer to home, Greco Levante features a traditional Greek menu and organic breakfasts.
The villas are great for families, though best suited to 4+ year olds not toddlers. Kids will love splashing in the beautiful (unfenced) infinity pools, and being tucked up in the bedroom at the top of the villa. Gialos beach, seen from the villa's windows, is the best bet for children - no steps, you can drive right up to it and it’s less crowded than its more famous neighbours.
Babies (0-1 years), Children (4-12 years), Teens (over 12)
There are 2 double rooms per villa, and the top room has a double or 2 single beds, and can fit an additional 2 single beds - so the villas are perfect for 2 families with 2 kids apiece, or a multi-generational holiday. The ground-floor terraces can interlink on request if you rent more than 1 villa, giving you a lovely entertaining space to play with.
