About the property

Villas Horizon

Villas Horizon have been built on over an acre of land with the utmost care and respect for local nature and landscape keeping in mind the expectations of today’s holidaymaker. The owners have managed to combine the natural landscape with modern building keeping high levels of luxury and comfort whilst maintaining the area's flora. Away from the crowds but within 5 minutes of local amenities, the villas are set in a beautiful olive grove and are surrounded by splendid Mediterranean herbs and flowers blossoming at different times throughout the season keeping the property colorful at all times. All four villas have been furnished to very high standards and offer all the mod cons you would need to enjoy your holiday. Each villa has its own swimming pool (10mX5m) with jacuzzi where one can cool off or lounge on a sunbed on the surrounding paved terrace which leads to gardens where you can gently swing in the hammock under the trees reading a book or just relaxing and enjoying the views.

Villas Horizon are located just off the road leading south down the east coast of Lefkas island within walking distance of tavernas, cafes, shops and bakeries in Kariotes. About 1200m away is a selection of some of the best fish tavernas on the island in Ligia plus a collection of cafes and bars to while away the time. A short 5 min drive into the hills is Katouna, a traditional sleepy village where time has almost stood still there is a fabulous little taverna and cafe on the square where the locals come out to every evening to complete their embroidery or just chat and catch up on the local 'happenings'!

We arrived Monday morning on 13.06, with 2 cars, 8 persons after a long road from Romania.From the first moment we loved how the villa was placed, really near we had Lefkada town and a lot of supermarkets which made easier our shopping but the area was not crowded, around us just gardens with olive trees and silence. Soooo relaxing!!!

We stayed 9 nights and every single day at villa Maistro was exceptional..Really we dont have words to say how satisfied we are after this holiday!!!:)

The villa has a great view , was fully equiped for cooking, cleaning, barbeque, extremly clean and everything in great conditions.The AC was great, we had 37 degrees some days so it was very helpful.

Special thanks to Mr. Efthimios, wich was more like a friend and not owner, he took care of us and visited us just to check if everything was ok, he also gave us a map and information where we could buy fresh fish. He always answered and helped us if we needed and also brought some delicios cookies!!

The pool was clean and it was great we could use it also by night when it was hot.I would highly reccomend this villa for any tipe of travelers, i think specially because is so nice, clean and the silence and the beautiful gardens make it suitable for families with children.

Thank you again for a wonderful, unforgettable holiday!

Just amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a week at Villa Ostria together with 5 friends in August 2012. We were looking for a great villa which offers privacy, a pool and nice outside area (incl. barbecue). We did our due diligence and checked out several villas on the net. At the end our choice was Villa Ostria and we couldn't have been happier about our decision. One always is curious if the villa is really that great (after seeing the pictures) and in this case all our expectations were exceeded.

We spent most of our time outside in the garden, since we were also lucky with the weather. The pool, various seating possibilities, the gardens, everything was just perfect.

We also really enjoyed the service of Thimios, the owner. He was at our disposal 24/7.

So no complaints from our side. If we make it to Lefkada again, Villa Ostria definitely will be our place to stay.

Enjoy the villa, we definitely did!

It is a beautiful island and a lovely villa, all we could want for a perfect and very relaxing holiday.

The location of the villa is wonderful and we have enjoyed walking through the countryside. There are so many lovely things to see ans areas to explore, as well as some very tasty places to eat.

We could not ask for more!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Preveza (Aktio - PVK) at 20 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Ligia at 1200 Metres Nearest Ferry : Igoumenitsa at 100 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Kariotes at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : Ligia at 1200 Metres Car: necessary

Located at the North-East of the island 5 mins from Lefkas Town, in Kariotes near the fishing village of Ligia, our villas offer a unique setting for a summer holiday whether a family holiday, a holiday with friends or a romantic getaway. The villas sit at the foot of ‘Koulmos’ hill away from the main road making it a perfect location for relaxing by the pool enjoying gorgeous sea views and at the same time there are plenty of opportunities nearby for the more energetic to enjoy activities such as mountain biking, water sports, kite surfing, sailing or taking a motor boat out for the day to visit the nearby islands of Meganisi and Scorpios. Lefkas Town is within easy reach and is great for shopping, meandering around the old town or visiting one of the small museums. The ideal location of Villas Horizon ensures that you will not need to drive more than 15 minutes to reach some of the best golden beaches in the Ionian, excellent restaurants, bars and cafes and of course Lefkas Town is great for enjoyable and safe nightlife.

Ligia, 3 mins drive, is a pretty little coastal village on the east coast with an abundance of great fish tavernas located on the beachfront and on the picturesque harbour. There are a few cafes and bars in the village some of them right on the beach. At least 5 mini markets and bakeries can be found on the main road through the village and there is motorboat hire on the main beach.

Nidri, 10 mins drive, is the primary holiday resort on Lefkas. There are a variety of tavernas, restaurants and cafes here, also a handful of bars and a couple of nightclubs. The majority of shopping and tourist facilities are on the main street. On the seafront, known as the ‘Paralia’, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the Pringiponissa islands - amongst which is Scorpios, owned by the Onassis family. Cruises and Ferryboats operate from here to Cephalonia and Ithaca.

Agios Nikitas, 15 mins drive, on the north-west tip of the island, is a pretty little village surrounded by fabulous beaches such as Pefkoulia, Kathisma and Kalamitsi. It has adequate tourist facilities, many tavernas, restaurants and a few shops. The nucleus of the village has been placed under preservation order, thus maintaining the traditional Ionian ambience.

Syvota Bay, 25 mins drive, is in the south-east at the head of a large bay and has an outstanding natural harbour. Syvota is wonderful for an evening meal with great fish tavernas by the sea.

Vassiliki, 30 mins drive, in the south is a self-contained tourist resort with a full range of facilities. The harbour is lined with restaurants and cafes and the main street has a fair number of shops. Souvenir shopping is usually quite good here, there are lots of shops which specialise in casual wear and sports gear.

Lefkas Town Beaches: Agios Giannis – Milos – Gyra - Kastro

(5 mins drive) A length of approximately 12 kms of fine shingle beach beginning as Agios Giannis Beach which is dotted with tavernas and cafes. Further along is Milos Beach with kite surfing facilities, a couple of cafes and a restaurant. On the northern point is Gyra Beach favoured by the locals with a small taverna right on the beach, sunbeds and a cafe. The stretch ends with Kastro Beach, completely virgin without any facilities. This stretch of beach is mostly very fine shingle and in some places sand.

Nidri Beach - Pefkakia

(10 mins drive) A long sandy beach dotted with restaurants and hotels on the outskirts of the town. Very good for children as it is very shallow for a relatively long way in and does not shelve almost at all. There are water-sports facilities and lots of little restaurants where you may have lunch and water sports including paragliding, wakeboarding, water skiing and fun rides.

Milos Beach – Agios Nikitas

(15 mins drive) To get to it you must go to Agios Nikitas and take a sea taxi operating a taxi service to and from Milos departing from the beach at the end of Agios Nikitas Main Street.

Kalamitsi Beach

(approx. 1 hr drive). One of the most beautiful beaches on Lefkas. Fine shingle dotted with rock formations and a long stretch of pure white shingle beach. There are two small cafés down here and not much with regards to sun beds and beach facilities.

Porto Katsiki Beach

(approx. 1hr drive) Porto Katsiki, the best known beach, is today considered one of the most outstanding in the whole of Europe. This is a beach of exceptional beauty at the most southern tip of the island. A gorgeous shingle beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water. There are cafes and tavernas at the beach and sunbed facilities on the beach.

Engremni Beach

(approx. 1 hr drive). 296 or so, steps lead down to this stunning beach virginal fine shingle beach. One of the top beaches in the Ionian Sea this is a must for visitors to Lefkas island. As with Porto Katsiki it is a gorgeous beach framed by high limestone cliffs and crystal-clear turquoise water.
