Dressed in beautiful pale golden stone, Villa Athina claims a lofty but unobtrusive position high on the hillside above Agios Nikitas on the west coast of Lefkada. Agios Nikitas is one of the island’s most sought-after villages, with its own pretty beach and enough tavernas to ring the changes for at least a week. It’s a popular spot in the height of summer, but those lucky enough to be staying nearby will find the village quietens considerably as evening falls, so you can enjoy a relaxed stroll around its cobbled streets and traditional buildings as you choose your dinner spot.
Athina’s hillside location gives you two gloriously contrasting perspectives: from the pool area you look out over Lefkada’s rugged, forest-clad mountains, whilst the front patio offers equally wonderful views of the sea in all its myriad shades of blue. There’s plenty of room here to enjoy evening drinks or a barbecue, complemented by the nightly spectacle of a stunning Ionian sunset. The interior is practical and comfortable, with two good-sized en-suite bedrooms located on the main terrace level, and a bright, airy living-dining area upstairs to take full advantage of the view. Some upgrades to the décor and furnishings are also planned in time for summer 2023.
Villa Athina is positioned next to identical Villa Valia, so if you’re travelling in a larger group or as two families then both villas can be rented together. Regardless of your party size, it’s a great base for discovering the full diversity of Lefkada, from centuries-old rural villages to the lively buzz of the island capital and the spectacular west coast beaches such as Mylos and Porto Katsiki, considered to be some of the finest in the Ionian.

Our choice of Greek properties is as diverse as the islands themselves, ranging from simple seaside charm to genuine luxury and style. Much of our portfolio is privately owned, and price alone is therefore not a universal guide. We contract all our accommodation in person, and each property has its individual appeal. To help you make the right choice based on your own priorities, we have devised a simple grading guide to be considered in conjunction with each individual property description, awarding up to a maximum of five stars for the below categories.
* For further clarification on Facilities and Amenities, please view the 'Details' tab for each property or speak to one of our experienced sales consultants.
