Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can honestly say we have never experienced such a warm and kind welcome from a hotel. Both Tasia and Georgia were so kind and generous, sharing tips on where to visit, feeding us cake and settling us into our villa. We were overwhelmed. The hotel itself is beautifully cared for and the team do not stop working making sure that the gardens are cared for, the sun beds and pool area is clean, the beds and towels are changed and that you have the most relaxing time. The villa itself was beautiful and we were lucky enough to stay there and enjoy the amazing four poster bed, lounge area and air con! The kitchenette is perfect to make breakfast and lunch and has all the equipment you need. The island of Lefkada is stunning and the beaches are unparalleled, the sea is turquoise. Bring some swim shoes for the rocks though as the pebbles can be tough on your feet. Visit Sivota for a lunchtime meal - what a find that place was, very upmarket and then move on round to Ammoussa for a swim in the secluded bay. Ligia itself was small and quiet, although we found the Art Club bar which was brilliant. If you want a quiet and relaxing trip this is the place to go, the owners cannot do enough for you and we really appreciated that. Thank you

Best apartments we have ever stayed in. Fabulous owner and lovely kind staff. Couldn’t do enough for us. Only downfall for us was the bar was never opened in the evening. We like to meet other guests and have a nightcap after our evening meal but unfortunately this wasn’t possible.

We arrived to Pumpkin Pie and we left to it as well. Tasia is such a wonderful host and the apartments are so much better than many of those we have visited in Greece over a good 27 years. So many nice touches, attention to detail and beautifully decorated. Spotlessly clean and free air con included as well as mozzie nets everywhere (more of that later). Pads on the feet of the furniture so that you don’t disturb the people below, fresh flowers every day, a welcome beer in the fridge along with bread ham and cheese for the sandwich toaster provided plus milk, butter and water, what’s not to like! The pool is fab and the area kept very clean as is the pool itself. Lots of very upmarket sunbeds and lovely shaded spots in the garden to enjoy a quiet read and a cool drink (which always comes with nuts, crisps or both). Tasia (short for Anastasia) never stops working and is always on hand if needed. Her brother Christoph helps with the bar in the early evening and is a lovely friendly guy. Georgia was also on hand with a friendly smile. The supermarket at the top of the road is well equipped and a very short walk, which is useful as you will need to stock up on drinks and nibbles for the evening as the bar shuts by 9.00 pm which is mainly to avoid noise disturbances for other guests. We had 2 balconies that were ideal for a drink on our return from eating and it was lovely and peaceful both day and night. The place is pretty small and attracts guests from all over the world. We shared the place with, Danish, Norwegian, Israelis, Germans and Swiss as well a few fellow Brits. The main restaurants are pretty nearby. One inland is To Koutoki which we ate at twice. It does get very busy but it is a cheap place to eat with reasonable food. We ate mostly on the beautiful sea front. Taverna Seven Islands was our favourite although Giannis was also good. There aren’t that many places to eat if you’re not a bit fish eater and in truth the choices are limited with hardly any “traditional “ Greek dishes on offer, and very few offering any kind of sauce on the meat which can be dry having been grilled mostly. Local wine was excellent though and reasonably priced. We averaged around 50 Euros a meal with wine. The beach itself looks rather unwelcoming but there are a few tatty sunbeds available free of charge and the sea is so lovely to swim in or just float and drift. All in all we loved the apartments, the resort is perhaps slightly disappointing as are the eating options compared to many that we have visited on other islands, but the people are special, particularly Tasia and we do hope to return in the future for more Pumpkin pie!

From the moment of our arrival we were met with the warmest of welcomes. Tasia, Chris and Georgia make every effort (and succeed) to make sure everything is in place for you to fully relax in this wonderful little oasis. Their hospitality is second to none. Genuinely friendly, polite and courteous people, nothing was ever too much trouble. The whole site is always kept immaculately clean and tidy. Rooms are cleaned daily, with fresh bed linen and towels supplied very regularly. (the cleaning ladies were also great, going about their business efficiently and almost unnoticed) The little poolside bar was always attended for refreshments needed and the lush garden areas are very well tended to. Situated far enough from the main road to be quiet but close enough to nip to the supermarket for essentials make it an ideal location. The seashore is also only a couple of hundred yards away from the apartments themselves, but be advised that the small beaches are pebbles not sand and watershoes are recommended if you intend to venture into the warm, shallow crystal clear sea. Several good restaurants were all within a 10 - 15 minute walk away, all serving great food at very reasonable prices. Convenient bus stops are also nearby to take a short ride into Nydri or Lefkada town if you want something a little livelier on an evening. In all, an exceptional place run by exceptional people. it was an absolute pleasure to stay here. We can't thank you enough for making our time with you truly enjoyable. Mike, Claire & Lola Radford
