Villa overview - owner's description
Stunning four bedroom, traditional villa. Beautiful outdoor area with infinity swimming pool. Shaded area for relaxing and dining. Small organic garden for you to enjoy.
The property is a large house of traditional architecture and construction, located in the mountain above the village of Tsoukalades on the west coast of the island. It is 700m from the village for essential groceries (very well appointed minimarket) and taverns, less than 5 minutes drive from the beautiful Pefkoulia beach, and 10 minutes from the fishing village of Aghios Nikitas and from the living Lefkada town.
Sleeping eight (up to 10), it has two double bedrooms and two single (becoming double) bedrooms, its own private swimming pool, a pool house, a pergola and a barbecue area with a wood oven. Beautiful garden, terraces and a small organic vegetables garden surround the house. Its location offers the most beautiful Lefkadian sunsets, and gorgeous views from every part of the house that overlooks rural hills to the sea beyond, to Ionian sea, Paxos and Corfu, and Amvrachikos gulf.
Even though this house is new, it has a warmth and simple charm, character and soul. As soon as you enter the front door you feel as relaxed as in a family home.
A green option
The villa is also an interesting ecological option : it has no connection to the main electricity supply and produces its own power through a solar-powered system. The design of the installation supports the normal use of all the household equipment and the swimming pool, and is backed-up, if necessary, by a silent power generator. It is interesting to note here that power cuts are not rare during the summer period, and that therefore, beyond the environmental interest, the villa is protected from their inconvenience!
Environmental awareness and the understanding of renewable energy are paramount to help prevent future climate change. When looking to holiday abroad, choosing an eco-friendly residence can be an important decision to make.
The villa has been beautifully constructed using wooden beams, local natural stone and ecologically friendly paints. The stone was taken from the ground during excavations of the foundations and handcrafted to construct the thick walls. The structure, using half timber frame and half stone, follows the very old traditional Lefkadian style and is a superb achievement. The house has wooden floors, beams and pillars, hidden alcoves and rooms, and a cellar that adds to its immense charm.
GROUND FLOOR: Main entrance into an open plan living/dining area with a working fireplace, and 3 sets of French windows that open onto terrace and lawns, and a separate door onto a patio. A well appointed kitchen with a big gas stove and all the cooking facilities: electric kettle, electric toaster, filter coffee maker, dishwasher, and a cellar with a washing machine, iron and ironing board.
A cloakroom with a WC and wash basin. A big bathroom with shower.
DVD - CD players, satellite TV, free Internet connection , safety box, first aid kit, hair dryer, plus other little items that make your holiday comfortable.
FIRST FLOOR: 2 double bedrooms both with bathrooms with showers and French windows, one onto a balcony, and the other onto the rear terrace. 2 single bedrooms becoming double. 1 family bathroom with shower.
OUTSIDE: Steps down to a gently sloping lawn to a private infinity swimming pool. A roofed sitting area and a pool house with shower. A patio with a bread oven and B.B.Q, an outside dining area with patio furniture. Parking area. Panoramic sea views.
A small organic vegetable garden provides the guests during their stay with unforgettable tomatoes, eggplants, courgettes, peppers, thyme, rosemary, mint, and other summer herbs and vegetables.
The house has a natural air conditioning. The regular breezes in this area of low altitude and the stone construction suffice to keep a cool temperature inside the house.

* Kostas Tsigos' land - upon the hill of Peratia, in front of Lefkada (10 km).
The land has been cultivated for 15 years with natural methods. Thei owners first aim was the family's autonomy in fruits, vegetables, pulses, olive oil, meat, poultry, eggs... and then the sharing of awareness on organic culture, food and way of life. Kostas and Hara are active members of "Peliti" network, and struggle for the preservation and diffusion of local original seeds and autochthon species. In this aim, seminars are organized, and children can follow free gardening lessons and look after their vegetable and flower garden every Sunday.
For them (and for us), the culture of the land is culture of the soul...
The land can be visited every Sunday, after arrangement
