New: Villas with private pools at Desimi Bay on the Greek island of Lefkada

Villa specialist, Vintage Travel, is delighted to announce that it is featuring six new properties on the unspoilt Greek island of Lefkada, joined to the mainland by a small bridge and home to some of the best and renowned beaches of the Mediterranean that resemble those in the Caribbean.

The properties – tucked in the hillside above Desimi Bay – include Votsalo, designed in an ‘upside down’ fashion with the open-plan beamed living room – leading onto a terrace – being on the first floor to maximise the glorious views.

It sleeps four in two en suite bedrooms and its sun terrace is framed by indigenous shrubs and pine trees.  In the grounds there is also a private swimming pool and a poolside shower and a path leads to a rocky shoreline with small natural stone piers.

Other villas include Akro2573_2giali, again enjoying spectacular sea views and where an ancient stair-come-pathway leads directly to the water’s edge. It sleeps four in two en suite bedrooms and has again been built in an ‘upside down fashion’ to take advantage of the stunning views.  In the gardens, which are backed by pine trees, there is a private swimming pool, poolside shower and sun terraces.

Just 750 metres away from the properties there is the gently shelving sandy beach and waterside tavernas of Desimi, while Vlicho (2.8km walking or 3.9 km driving) has good amenities and excellent restaurants.

A seven-night holiday in Votsalo or Akrogiali costs from £584, increasing to £2434 in peak season.

Flights and car hire can be arranged by Vintage Travel on request.
