In a wild and wonderful location surrounded by nature with awesome views over the Ionain sea.
The simple architecture and the colours used for the exterior of the villa blend perfectly with the surrounding nature. Inside, beautiful light decor with subtle colours and natural materials complete arelaxing, peaceful and homely feel to the villa.
The villa is on two levels. On the ground floor there is an open plan space with a living area by the fireplace, a dining table for four and a fully equipped kitchen. There is also a bathroom with shower on this floor featuring a white marble sink and late Neo-Classical green mosaic tiles.
On the first floor are two bedrooms – one with a king size bed and one with twin beds - and a bathroom with glass ceiling and shower. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans and each has a private balcony with sea view. The walls separating the bedrooms are 2.2 m high with a gap at the top so as to allow natural airflow through the building. The concept of the villas is based on the serene location and the pleasant climate of the environment making air-conditioning unnecessary. Instead, ceiling fans and the loft type architecture allow for a natural air flow from the pine-scented breeze that wafts up from the sea.
The villa offers cable TV, DVD, radio/CD and Bluetooth speaker, WiFi internet access and a library with books, table games, music CDs and movies. The villa also offers daily cleaning service, change of bed linen and towels every second day. Upon arrival guests will find the fridge and cupboards full of fresh local products and local fresh bread is provided daily.
The exterior space is surrounded by olive trees, cypress and Mediterranean bushes and aromatic herbs - rosemary, lavender, oregano and thyme bloom under the sun next to pomegranate, lemon and almond trees. There is a large infinity swimming pool and outdoor shower as well as a large private stone-flagged garden with a dining table for four and a wooden deck area with comfortable sunbeds. There is also a Weber bbq with tools & briquettes.
Suspended over the sea under the shade of the olive trees is a‘relaxation’ deck, shared with the guests of villa Eros, where guests can enjoy the sunset or have a refreshing workout. There you can find two sunbeds overlooking the sea, 1 spinning bike, 2 stretch cords, 2 yoga mats, 1 pilates soft balls, 1 jumping rope and freshly washed towels. There is also a secure shaded parking space.
The villa is located very close to the charming village of Agios Nikitas where cars are prohibited from its narrow winding streets. It is only about 700m away and easy to go downhill to the village but steep on the way back up so we would recommend car hire. This is a very pretty village with a mass of vibrantly coloured flowers and Neo-Classical houses painted in traditional colours of ochre, loulaki blue, terracotta and burnt oxide. Agios Nikitas has a good selection of shops, bars and tavernas and the village is an ideal place to sit and relax and enjoy excellent, local cuisine and some low-key nightlife at the water's edge. From the beach of Agios Nikitas, there is a regular water taxi that takes guests to the white sand beaches of Kathisma and Pefkulia which have to be amongst Lefkada's most stunning. The main town of Lefkada is approx 20 mins drive from the villa.
Villa Psyche is ideal for one couple or a family of four looking for a peaceful summer haven surrounded by nature. There is a 15% discount for one couple.
