Villa Dessimi sits above Dessimi Beach on the east coast of the island close to the quaint fishing village of Geni and not far from cosmopolitan Nidri where you can find a wide variety of restaurants, cafes, shops and tourist attractions such as boat trips and watersports. Villa Dessimi is completely private and not overlooked by anyone and at the same time it is a short 5 minute walk to the beach with motorboat hire and three tavernas to choose from. Special care has been taken by the owners when designing the villa to ensure uninterrupted sea views from a variety of stone paved terraces and balconies from where you can enjoy the sun from dawn until late afternoon and total tranquility in the evenings watching the boats sail past. Villa Dessimi is modern and stylishly furnished with all the mod cons you would need to enjoy a relaxing and comfortable holiday home from home. Surrounded by fragrant flowers and herbs villa Dessimi is just perfect for a relaxing holiday in the Ionian.
We sailed from Falmouth in 1995 with the aim of seeing a bit of the world and ended up in Nidri for the winter of 1996. We fell in love with the island, sold the boat and bought a tumbledown stone house on the island. When young friends asked our advice about a piece of land they were thinking of buying we said "If you don't buy it we will." They eventually decided against it so the plot was ours. We sold our old stone house and built Villa Dessimi finishing it in 2005.
We fell in love with the plot as it has staggeringly beautiful views and is very quiet and peaceful even in the height of summer.
What impressed us about the plot was the proximity to the beach and the fact that although many villas on Lefkas have beautiful views this one has both near and far away views. It has a 270 degree stunning view.
Our best holiday ever! Beautiful villa, well designed with everything you could possibly need. Pegi, Ted, Angharad and Esyllt Beaumaris. Delightfully. Exclusive. Secluded. Sunspot. Idyllic. Magnificently indulgent Villa! - Janis, Andrew, Jessica and Alexander Bulpitt August 2010
We happened upon a little piece of paradise this week - just the relaxing escape we'd hope for. John and Della Stones July 2011
Have had 2 excellent holidays here already and are coming again this year. Really looking forward to what is beginning to feel like a second home.
Recommend - hiring a car and exploring, scuba diving in Vasiliki, hiring a boat from the beach below the Villa, spending lazy days by the pool and having dinner on the balcony soaking up the fabulous views.
