Secluded villa with spectacular views and sunrises, built for comfort and peace

Overview

Property

Updated: 15-Oct-2016
Situated in a beautiful quiet Olive Grove yet close enough for all you need

The villa is situated on the edge of a hill village in a beautiful secluded olive grove down an unmade up track, above the small yachting town of Nidri. It has been built with no expense spared of natural stone with all solid wood joinery of the highest standard. The property enjoys spectacular views out over the Ionian Sea and the island of Scorpios and Sparti to the Greek mainland in the distance. The wooded and terraced grounds provide a haven of peace and quiet whilst the property enjoys easy access to Nidri with its many tavernas bars and shops and a thriving port for yachts and ferry services to the other Ionian Islands. In the heat of the summer the hills are the place to be away from the noise and heat of the coast which is still in the sun in the evening. The property has extensive patios and terraces providing both sun and shade at all times of the day. The very spacious pool terrace has teak pool loungers with umbrellas and an African Thatch covered area which can have two double Mexican hammocks hung or a table and chairs to eat at. The pool is a large 60 sq meters infinity pool cleaned by ionisation, so very little chlorine is used and looks out over the olive groves to the sea and islands. There is a childproof gate on the top terrace so children can not have access. The sunrise on a few mornings of a holiday is unmissable. The villa is designed for pure comfort with Hypnos mattress and choice of pillows. White crisp linen changed twice a week. A/C in all bedrooms and Hunter ceiling fans and screens on windows. The charming Dimitri runs the village Taverna 5 mins walk away so an evening walk through the Olive grove is all you have to do if you don't want to cook. He will also deliver. Many more Tavernas are in Nydri. More detail on topetrinovilla website and for booking.

We want to ensure that everything is perfect when you arrive and all the way through your holiday and if it is not we would certainly want to hear about it.

What a wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 9 (2 families with children ranging from 13 down to 6) and had the most amazing week at To Petrino in July 2015.

The villa in beautifully maintained, tastefully decorated throughout and to a very high spec and impeccably clean. Sue was a delight to deal with and enormously helpful about recommendations etc. before our arrival. The view from the pool (out across the small islands) is one of the most beautiful we're had from any house, anywhere in the world. We all loved it!

We hope to return soon and would highly recommend it.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This was my third holiday at To Petrino and it never disappoints! Everyone loved it (we were in a group of 10).

The villa has everything you could possibly need, is very comfortable and spacious, with so many different areas to relax in the sun or shade...always nice arriving at a villa when everything is perfect!

We very much enjoyed our trips exploring the coastline on a boat but it was always so nice relaxing at the villa, having lovely lunches, lying by the infinity pool and taking in the magnificent views of the surrounding islands.

I would highly recommend the villa for anyone planning a holiday in Greece - paradise! And thank you to the owners for sharing your lovely villa!

High quality villa with amazing views on Lekvas

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious villa with infinity pool and fantastic views of Nidri, the islands and beyond. Well positioned to easily access facilities in Nidri and elsewhere on the island, but secluded and peaceful. Everything about our stay and booking experience was great. We were three families, all with teenagers, and we would highly recommend To Petrino.

BEST VILLA IN IONIAN ISLANDS!

  • 5 of 5

We went as two families to this stunning villa , 10 of us in all and we all rated it is as the most well thought out and comfortable villa we have ever used.

Loads of space for everyone, a HUGE pool with masses of comfortable sunbeds for everyone ( not always the case) and endless different seating areas to catch the sun or shade depending on your mood.

The villa itself is stunningly decorated and everything but everything is of the highest quality, so nice to stay somewhere with comfortable beds with proper pillows and crisp white sheets which are changed by the wonderfully helpful housekeeper.

The kitchen is incredibly well appointed with everything you could need if you wanted to do lots of cooking or use the large barbeque outside. I cannot think of a thing that they haven't thought of to make it a very special holiday.

The views are stunning from house and pool and it is incredibly quiet, but close enough to go and buy warm bread in the morning or go and pick up a boat for a day.

I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone - it is a dream holiday house!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at beautiful To Petrino, this time returning with the older generation. They loved it, being very comfortable with all the mod cons and extras you could need. They very much entered the spirit of the holiday with swimming in the pool, boat ride to Meganissi for lunch, visit to Lefkas town etc. But mostly we really enjoyed the villa, garden and pool side, with lots of barbecued fish for lunch or supper.

Thank you Sue for your lovely villa and ease to deal with and thank you Jacque for all your kind help at the villa.......we will be back.

Location

From the Owner

We choose Lefkas as the place to build a villa, for the beauty of the island and its diversity. We had never found anywhere as unspoilt as these islands. The west and east coasts are so different and so beautiful in their own way. When we first saw the land we knew we had found what we dreamed of; the spectacular views from the foothills just outside a very Greek little village were exactly what we wanted. The villa look down on busy Nidri which is fun to shop in and the young can enjoy the nightlife with only a short journey home through the olive groves. The very attractive Lefkas Town is not far away with more extensive shops where we always enjoy a drink in the square surrounded by Greek families.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Preveza at 35 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Nydri at 1 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Nydri to Meganisi at 1 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Paleakatuna at 100 Metres Nearest Beach : Nydri at 1 Kilometres Car: necessary

Special interest holidays:

We have had groups for painting at the villa but these have not been run by us. There is a wealth of wonderful boats, views and houses to paint. Low season Greece is well worth a visit the wild flowers and walking in the hills is a memorable experience. The coolers weather allows you to do thinks you would not do during the hot times. Summer is guaranteed weather so great boating weather visiting other islands and swimming in crystal clear bays and long lazy lunches on other islands beside the sea. For the more active, water skiing kite surfing and windsurfing. For those at home a Yoga instructor can visit the villa and you can enjoy a lazy lunch by the pool or just reading a book in a hammock.

Coast/Beach:

There are many beaches on the Island of Lefkas some of which are world renowned and spectacular. The closest beaches are just down in Nydri. . Windmill beach in Lefkas town is a center for kite surfing, and Vasiliki is a world famous beach for wind surfing. Hiring a boat is the best way to see the quiet private little coves scattered down the coast.

Travel:

Preveza (Actio) is the nearest airport and is approx 40 mins drive from the villa. Flights from Gatwick/Manchester operate between May and October on Sundays and Wednesdays. Also Easy Jet now flies to Preveza. If anyone wants to travel outside these days the journey from Corfu is good. Easy Jet to Corfu and Sky express to Preveza

Distances:

The town of Nidri is 1.5kms distant and Lefkas town is 15kms.

Further Details:

Nidri is a busy and thriving small town and a great center for boating and sailing. Many Tavernas and bars, shops and boutiques. Ferries and day boat trips leave from the front. Lefkas town should be visited as its interesting narrow streets with houses built of stone, wood and corrugated iron, re-built after the earthquakd of 1953, are very interesting and picturesque. Still a very authentic Greek town.

Facilities

From the Owner

We set out to create a villa that would blend in to the surroundings and in a Greek style but with all the comforts of modern living. We have used comfortable pocket sprung mattresses and white pure cotton linen and towels and air conditioned bedrooms, to ensure a good nights sleep. Every bedroom has an ensuite shower or bathroom. We have comfortable teak pool loungers with large shades and plenty of other benches and chairs so that everyone can find their own quiet space. The kitchen is well equipped with modern electrical appliances and all you need if you wish to stay in and cook. There are lovely walks in the mountains above the villa, a short drive away and some wonderful mountain Tavernas if you find Nidri too busy.
