About Rosalind Kimber

I am a retired primary teacher and my husband a company director. We live in the north of England far from the sea so love holidays with a coastal location. After holidays in Greece over a long period of time we decided to build a property for use by ourselves and our three grown-up children. Our 6 grandchildren love holidays there! There is so much to do for all the family. It is the perfect location to relax and get away from everything. We have also made many friends on Lefkada both Greek and English. We enjoy learning about another culture. We let the property when not in use and hope it makes for a perfect home from home holiday.

Rosalind Kimber purchased this villa in 2009

Why Rosalind Kimber chose Lefkada

Having visited Greece for holidays for more than 25 years and Lefkas in particular for the past 12 years or more, we fell in love with the beautiful countryside and the warm, friendly people. Here one can enjoy the unspoilt and traditional charm of the Greek Island of Lefkas all within easy driving access of the mainland. The island boasts 117km of coastline. The central mountain ridge is softened by an array of lush green valleys clad in olive groves and vineyards with tall cypress trees. Women wearing the traditional dresses and fine lace shawls continue cottage industries or help with the unchanging Greek rural life.The property is located down a quiet country lane yet is close to nearby villages and the town of Nidri. Built on the hillside the villa benefits from breathtaking views.

What makes this villa unique

This recently built architect designed villa has been furnished and equipped to the highest possible standard to provide the ultimate luxury holiday. All rooms are large, cool and airy. Take in the sun on the fully equipped sun terrace complete with gazebo and barbeque, cool off with a dip in the completely private infinity pool or just relax with a drink on the terrace. Watch the yachts go to and fro in the bay below. Sit on the lower patio and just immerse yourself in a book.

Enjoy a stroll down to Nidri for a spot of people watching.

In vlicho, just 5 minutes walk away you can experience the authentic flavour of Greece with its charming waterfront, local shops and a few excellent tavernas. Or nearby Nidri just 20 minutes easy walk away is more cosmopolitan with a variety of shops, bars, tavernas and restaurants. It is an ideal place to sit on the waterfront watching the world go by. For the more adventurous there are various water sports on offer.

Families are always made most welcome

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all agreed that if we ever won the lottery this is what we would buy as we gazed across the infinity pool and the panoramic views of the Ionian sea punctuated by tiny islands. We never tired of watching the yachts sailinto the harbour or watch the town gradually come alive with twinkling lights as we sipped our evening drinks and fired up the barbecue. Sunday Mirror Homes and Holidays 6. 9. 2009

It is an absolute stunning place and we just could not get over the view. Standing on the steps of the villa looking out across the pool the view actually looks like a picture on a movie screen. It's almost unreal. The house is beautifully designed and furnished. I don't think we saw another place on the whole island we liked better. My family are already trying to work out when we can all go back to Villa Elena!

Fantastic getaway break!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Elena provided us with a terrific base to explore the island, located within very easy reach of the busy town of Nidri and the smaller village of Vlicho. We had everything we needed in the villa, lots of space, very welcome air conditioning and, of course, the wonderful infinity swimming pool with breathtaking views over Vlicho Bay. The large gazebo provided lots of shade and a lovely setting for early evening drinks before dinner. Highlights of our holiday included a visit to the nearby waterfalls, a day hire of a putt putt boat to explore neighbouring islands and an outstanding meal at the Seaside restaurant in Geni. Ros provided lots of advice prior to our visit and the booking process couldn't have been easier. We look forward to returning to Villa Elena in the future and would happily recommend the property to friends and family!

Owner's Response: Thank you for such wonderful comments. We are so pleased you had such a wonderful holiday. There is so much to explore around the area and it is fantastic to visit the nearby islands either by your own boat or one of the day trip boats from Nidri. The waterfalls are indeed breathtaking, although less so in the heights of summer. I understand you attended a wedding in Geni and Lefkada is, not suprisingly, proving to be a popular wedding destination. The beautiful scenery and lovely people are what every couple would wish for on their special day. When you do need to relax a little the iniifnity pool and gazebo are indeed ideal. There is always something to watch in the bay below. After visiting the area for over 15 years we do try to provide information to make your stay as easy and pleasant as can be. We look forward to you staying at Villa Elena in the future.

favola meravigliosa

  • 5 of 5

una casa meravigliosa....fantastica..che ti permette di passare un'estate da sogno.

E' il secondo anno che vado in vacanza a Lefkada e ci tornero' anche il prossimo anno....lo scorso anno la casa era bella ma questa estate la casa era meravigliosa..piena di confort...e ideale per una convivenza di 8 persone senza mai darsi fastidio.

Il fantastico barbecue ti permette di fare delle cene meravigliose.

La vicinanza alla cittadina di Nidri e' un altro punto positivo...con dieci minuti si e' a cena al centro di nidri.

Non vedo l'ora di tornare
