  • Spacious outdoor space

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. Kathisma is an immaculate studio 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. Kathisma is the second highest of the cottages offering a spacious terrace just for two! 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.

Customer Feedback

Thank you so much for putting so much energy and care into making our holiday so lovely. Thank you to all your staff. Such a peaceful place with amazing views, food and company.
Alan & Natalie – September 2017

We've travelled with Simpson Travel a number of times over the years and they have become a 'go to' tour operator for us as they always provide the kind of accommodation we love, and customer service to match. We loved our stay in Kathisma, Vassiliki Cottages so much we are heading back there for a late season, extra week. George and Iliana have gone out of their way to create delightful spaces for two. The views are stunning, the amount of furniture supplied for two people is more than generous (no dragging your sunbed around the pool, because there are several). Everything you need is there for a peaceful break away, straying only from the cottages if you choose.
Mrs Mercer – September 2017

I have had a wonderful holiday and I was absolutely delighted with the little Cottage. It really was very special. Both Paul and Susanne were excellent and extremely helpful. Overall the experience was 10 out of 10 Excellent.

Alex and I spent a wonderful honeymoon here, enjoyed the wonderful place and beautiful pool. We hired a boat from Dessimi and had a wonderful day, stopping for lunch on Meganissi. Everything was so well organised, couldn't fault anything and would definitely book with Simpson again. A great villa, thank you!
Karen & Alex – July 2017

We've had a wonderful week here and a huge thanks to George and Lilliana, Paul and Suzanne for all their help and advice.  We've had a fab time! The first thing we did on arrival was to drive down to Pondi for a beer. Also good beaches nearby, a great walk and a wonderful spot!

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.
