We stayed at Olive Stone in Lefkada and were pleasantly surprised with the brilliant quality of the Villas. I learned from the owners that each stone that goes into building the Villas are hand cut on site from rough stones, which are locally quarried. Unbelievable detail goes into each cut stone. The finishes and fittings are high quality. The Villas are nestled amongst very old olive trees which must be beyond 100 years old.
We travelled as a family of 4, which included a 2.5 year old and a 6 year old.
The grounds are beautifully kept and the swimming pool is absolutely majestic. Panagiotis and Spyridoula are very welcoming, polite and generous. Both are educators in the local schools. Their philosophy is to leave the guests alone to experience the quite enjoyment of the surrounds. There is no on selling of tour services, etc.
Spyridoula will give you tips on what to see and when to go. When you first arrive some from the family will greet you once you get on to the island and guide you to the Villas.
Spyridoula is in the process of developing further Villas on the property and hopefully these will be up and running by next summer.
I can't overstate this place. You will not be disappointed.
It even has wifi.
The Villas are sufficiently away from the noise of down town but close enough to be very convenient. If you can't be fussed going out for dinner there are an abundant restaurants with delivery services nearby.
You need a car to get to the Villas. However, in any case, it is important to have a car on these islands to access remote beaches and villages.
We stayed for 8 days in the end of August and beggining of September 2016. The location of the villas is excellent - 5 min to the center of the main city in the island - Lefkada, short distance from super markets, gas stations, tavernas, pharmacies. Very quiet and peaceful place, surrounded by olive trees and very nice clean private swimming pool meters away from the villa's terrace. The house is brand new and has everything that one will ever need - fully equiped kitchen, washing machine, big living room with a flat screen TV, fast wireless internet connection in the entire house as well as in the pool area, two bathrooms - one on the first and one on the second floor (with relaxing bathtub), separate bedroom on the second floor with private balcony. Air conditioning units on both floors. The owner Mrs. Spyridoula is very kind, friendly and has a really warm personality. We thank her and her family for the amazing time spent in the villa - this is our best holiday ever!
