About Dioni

My name is Dioni Kalogeropoulou and I am the manager of Diodati Villas in Nikiana, Lefkada. The owner of the complex is my mother, Sophia Kalogeropoulou, a well known naif artist here in Greece. I have studied Architecture at the Polytechnic University in Athens (NTUA) and the last 7 years I am working as the general manager of our family Villas. I split my year between Athens (were I grew up and live during the winter) and our beloved island of Lefkada where I stay and work every summer.

Dioni purchased this villa in 2008

What makes this villa unique

The property was built by our family parents and finished in 2008.

When we first saw the site, we absolutely fell in love with the view and this "flying" sensation that it gives you when you gaze at the village of Nikiana, the sea and the mountains across, from above. The serenity of its environment and the unspoiled nature that surrounds it, constantly surprises us with its changes, colors, smells and sounds. The houses keep a vision of the typical Leucadian architecture, translated into comfortable, modern and luxurious Villas for our guests. Every detail, from the materials that were carefully chosen to match the area and traditions to the amenities and equipment, holds a personal touch, up to the most minor detail. Our family's love for antiques shows also in the furnishing, as you will see old and well restored furniture of wood that take you to some older times. The private pool that each of our Villa has, is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the amazing view and peacefulness. There is beauty inside and outside our Villas and for us, Diodati Villas complex it is a small jewel that we love dearly and continuously try to make even better!

Breathtaking.....the drive up is definitely worth it

  • 5 of 5

From the minute you drive through the gates you are in heaven. We were greeted by Laura the cleaner, shortly after Dioni's Mum also greeted us. The villa was immaculate and cleaned to a high standard. The views are breathtaking I could just all day watching the boats. We have teenage boys and even they loved it, obviously the free wifi helped! You will definitely need a car as very high up the steep mountain but worth it. We made full use of the downstairs apartment whilst having evening BBQs. Well equipped with everything you need. Can not recommended this villa enough. Laura speaks very little English, but couldn't do enough even bought buns in the morning. Loved it and would definitely go back.

Relaxing, amazing views, nice staff

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families with our children (all under the age of 5). The owners happily provided baby-cots for us and everything else we needed throughout our stay! Very clean, elegant Villa and surrounding spaces. We refilled our batteries in that beautiful place. The view is something we wish we could take with us back home! But we will be back!

Amazing stay in a spectacular location!

  • 5 of 5

Diodati Villas is a boutique hotel located in a secluded hill, not far from the main town of Lefks. The location is superb, with breathtaking views of the island and across the bay, giving lots of privacy, and at the same time enough proximity to action. The hotel is small and simply perfect, decorated with a lot of personal care and style, and the private swimming pool was a special addition to our stay. The rooms are very clean and tidy, and have a very comfortable feel. The hotel is family run, and the service personal, courteous and wonderful. We were looked after at every moment, and we were made to feel like at (a luxurious) home. I travel in Greece every year and have stayed in countless hotels, but Diodate Villas was well beyond my expectations. I would recommend this hotel wholeheartedly to anyone waning to have a private, beautiful, truly Greek holiday!

The Loveliest Place in Lefkada

  • 5 of 5

We visited Diodati Villas in early September. We were a group of 8 friends (4 couples) and we decided to book villa Aethra for our vacations this year! I had been there last year too so I knew the place was ideal for a large group! All the villas have got amazing sea views and its elevated location gives you the feeling that you will fly above the olive trees down to the water! All rooms are spacious and clean and our private pool with the sun beds and surrounding private space were ideal! Also during the night there is no better setting for a BBQ or having your mojito (with fresh mint directly from the garden) by the pool and underneath the stars!
