The first thing you’ll notice about this rather romantic new cottage is the view. Perched on the hillside above Vasiliki: Mylos, Kathisma, Afteli and Katsiki. Afteli is an immaculate 1 bedroom house looking out over green hills to the brilliant blue of the Ionian and all the way to Ithaca and Kefalonia beyond. The owner, George, designed his four detached properties very much with couples in mind, creating two one-bedroom cottages and two large studios, each with their own private swimming pool and terrace. Afteli is the highest of the four cottages and the most private. The white-painted timbers, high ceilings and seaside-inspired colour scheme lend the cottages real beach-house charm, and each has been named after one of the best beaches on the island.

Vasiliki is renowned for its windsurfing, yet this delightful and sleepy resort offers so much more with enough sea front tavernas to enjoy somewhere different each night and boasting some of the finest beaches not just in Lefkada, but the whole of the Ionian - you can take a little boat to Agiofili beach or make a longer trip to one of the celebrated west coast beaches, such as Porto Katsiki, Mylos, Kathisma or Pefkoulia, which are also easy accessible by hire car. Best of all, the cottages are less than a ten-minute drive from Vasiliki, so you can dip in and out as you like, always with the delightful option of your own private pool and terrace to escape to.

Your delightful hosts, George and Yianna, have thought of everything and this special cottage has been created from passion and a dedication to detail that makes a stay here so unique and epitomises the best that this stunning island has to offer.

This is a lovely island, beautiful scenery and very friendly people. Food wise we didn't have a bad meal during our stay, the wine was good well. Driving is easy, the majority of roads are fine, up in the mountains Karya square is a beautiful place for a break! Thanks Susanne, Paul & George for the advice and making this a great holiday.

Ms Wilkin – June 2017

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.
