About Francis Verbeiren

The owner has largely travelled the world and has finally decided to live on Lefkas Island. The safety on the island, the green nature, the beautiful beaches, the marina, a town where everything is available and the easy access to and from the mainland (by bridge) were the main factors for this decision.

Wishing you all "Happy Holidays"

Francis Verbeiren purchased this villa in 2008

Why Francis Verbeiren chose Ionian Islands

The spectacular view, close to town, very quiet.

What makes this villa unique

The villa offers total privacy, although not isolated, as we do have neighbours but they do not look over the pool.

We also enjoy the quietness which allows you to relax and enjoy the peace.

The views are constantly changing, the local fishing boats as well as the numerous yachts make for the perfect view to while away lazy days around the pool with family and friends, all that a true holiday should be !


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

What a Good Holiday........Thanks

  • 5 of 5

We booked Villa Gloria for an 'extended' family holiday for 9 people.

Our whole experience, from being guided up to the villa when we arrived, to leaving and having a very pleasant chat with the owner, Francis, was wonderful.

The villa was clean, well maintained and tidy. Everything worked as it should, and the villa was well equipped with plenty of crockery and glasses.

The kitchen area was easy to work in, and the dishwasher made clearing up really easy.

Eating out was a pleasure, with plenty of local choices, and the main town of Lefkas close by.

We ate at the villa on a few evenings, which was a real pleasure with stunning views, and very relaxing.

I would highly recommend this villa for a large group - there is plenty of room for everyone, plenty of bed and bathroom space.

The pool was a highlight of the villa, with the most amazing views and was used from dawn to dusk !

Fantastic villa - Fantastic Holiday.

Thanks very much

Simply Stunning Views....

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a wonderful week on the beautiful Island of Lefkada with our boys. We fell in love with the island, the people, the scenery, the cuisine - everything was fantastic. Views from the villa were simply amazing, took our breath away when we arrived. It was difficult to pull ourselves away from villa, so we had a number of lazy days by the pool, playing chill out music, reading, drinking G&Ts and soaking up those gorgeous views.. Car hire essential and worth exploring some of the lovely restaurants both locally and other parts of the Islands. Big thanks to Francis & Isla and to Jacqui & Howard and their lovely girls who were also so helpful. Already looking forward to our next trip to Lefkada !

This was our first visit to Greece..

  • 4 of 5

We just loved our stay there. Amazing villa - felt like we were coming home every day to our own private resort. Great location peaceful and quiet. The view and the infinity pool is to die for. We had a great time and would highly recommend this villa.

About Location : the villa is close to main attractions of the island. Lefkada town, Nidri or popular beaches can be reachable in short time by car.

The Villa is modern, well decorated, with the quality equipments you can reach all kinds of needs.

Hospitality : Pauline you ROCK... For every subject she is ready to help you.

Recommended for 2 families

  • 5 of 5

Summer 2012 we stayed with two families (4 children) in Villa Gloria and had a wonderful vacation. We were received with hospitality by Francis and Ilse. If there was a slight problem or we had a question, both reacted and acted immediately.

Since we all 8 loved it, we returned in the summer of 2013.

The villa (and the island) has everything you wish for. The view is spectacular, the pool inviting and the villa well equipped. This year we were not able to come, but for summer 2015 it is again high on our wish-list.

Thank you Ilse and Francis
