Ourania

Lefkada

Designed in an elegant, traditional style, located in a rural setting above the villages of Vasiliki and Porto Katsiki the property benefits from a large swimming pool and is a wonderfully peaceful setting.

Villa Ourania is located in one of the most beautiful areas of southern Lefkada above Porto Katsiki. This large stone residence sits high on a hill with magnificent views over the Ionian Sea. Surrounded completely by nature and set within 8 acres of grounds with its own large private pool, this is an ideal spot to experience utter peace and relaxation away from any other properties.

The property has been built to traditional designs with an ecological ethos, and using natural materials and local stone. The villa is on two levels connected by an indoor wooden staircase but each level also has its own independent access through the courtyard. All the rooms are surrounded by large stone verandas and all have a view to the sea and the islands of Ithaka and Kefalonia.

Villa Ourania has five bedrooms with three bathrooms (one of which is en-suite with jacuzzi bath).

On the upper level is a large living room with a fireplace, lounge and dining area for up to 14 guests. In the living room there is a telephone, TV, DVD and CD players as well as home cinema. French Windows lead out onto the terrace with its spectacular view. There is a separate farmhouse style kitchen with elegant fittings and fixtures including a traditional style range, fridge, oven, dishwasher and laundry machine. Doors lead out onto a kitchen patio. Further along the corridor is a bathroom with bath and shower. Towards the rear of the house is a very pretty double bedroom with a window and French Windows looking out onto the veranda shaded by an age-old olive tree. To the front of the house on this level, there is a 2nd double bedroom with access to a huge veranda running the length of the house as well as a spacious third double bedroom.

A wooden staircase leads down to the lower level which is a completely self-contained space with its own kitchenette and dining area for six. The master bedroom is on this level with en-suite bathroom with jacuzzi bath and shower as well as the 5th double bedroom with separate bathroom. French Windows lead out onto the spacious terrace.

All bedrooms throughout the house are fully equipped, and the double beds have mattresses made of natural metal-free materials. The villa also has air-conditioning and a daily maid service is provided. For additional guests, there is one single sofa bed in the living room, and 1 extra single bed that can be placed in one of the bedrooms.

The main courtyard of the house is an ideal spot for relaxation and is surrounded by a natural landscape where the indigenous plants and trees of the region have been preserved. Sage and thyme grow among the olive trees and cypresses, all protected by stone walls that enclose the terraces. There is also a garden with vines, fig trees and small fruit trees. From the courtyard of the house one can enjoy the splendid colours of sunrise and sunset, the evening star-studded sky, as well as the reflection of the moon in the waters beneath the terrace.

The private swimming pool (10m x 4m) sits on its own terrace surrounded by a spacious teak lounge area with deck chairs, umbrellas and 18 sunbeds. There is also a spacious outdoor dining area seating 18 guests.

The property is close to two of Greece’s most spectacular beaches, Egremnoi and Porto Katsiki. The villa also lies within a short driving distance of the bay of Vasiliki, famous for its windsurfing and sailing.

Villa Ourania is ideal for those seeking elegance and luxury away from the crowds and surrounded by sea, sky and natural beauty. The property also works well for special occasions such as small weddings, anniversary parties and yoga groups.

Please note that the road up to the villa is a 'white road' (strada bianca) that has has steep drops on one side. Jeep hire is not necessary but drivers need to be confident and with reasonably good driving skills.

Reviews

Goedele Wuyts arrived 14/08/2016

 
With some delay, our experience in Ourania was fabulous! I herewith give you the most positive elements we particularly liked:
 
1 - comfort of the house with enough and agreeable facilities such as the large tables to have breakfast, dinner or lunch outside.
 
2 - efficiency and rapidity of intervention when something was needed (such as the umbrellas at the swimming pool, or the reparation of the wash machine)
 
3 - nice welcoming to the house and helpfulness of Ruth
 
4 - quietness of the location, beautiful view and nature around
 
All by all, we had a very lovely time and are happy about our Ourania experience!
 
Thank you Pretty Greek Villas,
 
Goedele Wuyts
