Located in one of the most beautiful areas of southern Lefkas island, thιs villa stands on a low hill overlooking breath-taking vistas of the Ionian sea near the famous Greek beaches of Egkremnoi and Porto Katsiki. The four villa complex (LEFK1-0) is nestled among oak and olive trees, spaced far enough apart to ensure privacy.
The residence (230 m2), is built on two levels a ground floor and a first floor. Internally they are connected by a wooden staircase but they can also be accessed independently via the exterior entries on each level. All the rooms have large wooden French windows as, well as windows with double panes and screens.
The first level floor is wooden in the local traditional manner, and the ceilings are supported by wooden trunks of pines and cypresses. On the ground level, the floor is set with marble and the ceilings are made of traditional Lefkas island white wood. The paint and plastering of the walls and ceilings are based on natural materials that allow the underlying wall elements to breathe. Their soothing colors add to the serene atmosphere.
On the first level there is a living room, a kitchen and a bedroom with adjoining bathroom. The living room is spacious with an exceptional view, and has a large couch (seats 5), manufactured with ecological materials, that can be changed into a comfortable bed (0.90 x 2.40m). In addition, it has an armchair that can also be changed into a bed (0.90 x 2.00 m), a traditional black iron wood stove, TV, DVD and CD players. The kitchen, at one end of the living room, has a large dining table and chairs and is completely equipped with a big refrigerator, oven, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave and coffee machine.
The bedroom is fully equipped with a double wooden bed (1.70 x 2.10m), headrest, mattress and box spring chosen for their ecological materials. It also contains bedside tables, dressing room, wardrobe, armchair, iron and ironing board, TV, DVD and CD players. The bed faces the 2 m wide French windows which open onto a large veranda with a view to the sea and the islands of Ithaca, Cephalonia and several smaller ones. The adjoining bathroom has a Jacuzzi and a hair dryer. The bathroom floor is marble and the wall tiles are handmade.
Descending the internal wooden staircase from the first floor to the ground floor we find a central room which has a double sofa bed (1.40 x 2.00 m), and an armchair bed (0.90 x 2.00 m), a small range, dishwasher, a small walled refrigerator and a coffee machine. In this space there is also a separate WC and a small storage closet. On either side of this room there is a bedroom with its adjoining bathroom. The bedroom on the right has a double wooden bed (1.70 x 2.10 m) and the bedroom on the left has two large separate beds (1.00 x 2.10 m) which can be joined into a double bed (2.00 x 2.10 m) without leaving a gap in between. The rest of the bedroom equipment is the same as that of the top floor. The bathrooms are the same as the top floor bathroom but one has a tub with a Jacuzzi while the other has a shower.
The bedrooms have big French windows which lead out onto a roofed stone veranda that connects with the courtyard and swimming‐pool area.
The residence has its own rectangular 4 x 10 m swimming pool, with a depth of 0.80 to 1.6 m, Around the pool is a 100 m2 lounge area with deck chairs and umbrellas. There are more outdoor lounges, BBQ and parking spaces in front of the residence.
There is air‐conditioning in every room, however the excellent microclimatic conditions of the region, the summer breeze and the local winds, in combination with the orientation of the house and the arrangement of the exterior openings ensure natural cooling even during the hot summer days and render air‐conditioning unnecessary.
