A lovely spot in the hills outside Lefkada. Dimitrios and his staff go above and beyond to look after the guests, including some top tips for attractions on the island.
I spent a week here in the middle of September together with my wife and a large group of our friends. We rented all of Dimitrises villas. A part of our group stayed once more in the past years at Villas Panorama and it was there the ideea to come here. They told us that it's beautiful and the view is great but what we found here was more than we imagined.
The Villas are placed up on a hill from where you can see all of the Lefkada town and the port, the view is simply breathe taking. In each villa there where two couples. Some with children some without. My wife and i stayed at the first floor. We had one very large room that fitted 3 people, a balcony and a huge terrase, we woke up each morning to this spectacular view. It recharged our batteries.
At the first floor which is better suited if you travel with children you have a kitchen and 2 large bedrooms with huge beds.
The villas are in an excellent shape. Every year in off season Dimitris, builts a new one, renovates, improves on things. For each villa there is a swiming pool, there are 2 large terraces with sun beds, tables and chairs, beneeth this two terraces there is an outdoor kitchen with a few large tables where we spent some memorable evenings in Dimitrises company who is an excellent host, a good story teller and well informed historian. He gave us great suggestions about which beach to visit and for places to eat. He even planed a dinner with freshly caught fish for us in one of the evenings.
You deffinitly need a car to go to town and to the port for visiting or for supplyes because up at the villas there is no posibility to eat and there are no shops. Dimitris told us he is planning to bulild a restaurant for this year. I hope he succeds and i wish him good luck with this project. A car is also very handy to visit the hole island with its amazing beaches and views. You couldn't make it without one and it's a shame not to visit it, the island has so much to offer.
I would deffinitely stay here again and recomand it to anyone.
I've spent several summer holidays on Lefkada island and in my opinion the Panorama Villas really help you enjoy the beautifulness of the island.
You have a perfect view towards the town of Lefkada, the surroundings and the amazing Ionian sea. Combine all these with a wonderful pool and you've got the perfect summer holiday.
During our stay there we've also met the host, Dimitris, and we were pleasantly surprised with his friendliness and good spirits and this really helped making our stay very cozy. His English is very good so you should not worry about the linguistic barriers.
The bathrooms, the pool and the proximity of the villas are being cleaned daily. There is always someone around in case you need someting (consumables, towels, baby chairs, etc ...)
It is your decission if you wish to go to the beach or spend the entire day at the pool and enjoy the sun. There is plenty of shade as well.
All in all, our holiday at Panorama Villas was simply amazing and I'd gladly recommend the villas to anyone. Actually my parents are going to spend their 2017 summer holiday at the Panorama Villas following my recommendation :)
Dimitris put his soul into this project and, as a tourist, you leave a little of your soul there.
And certainly you have to go back.
Because Dimitris is the most careful, warm, impeccable hosts that you can imagine.
And I don't say that because his mother has cooked my favorite cheese pie.
You need to step into his home at least once and you will understand.
When we first arrived in Lefkada, Dimitris waited for us downtown and led us up the hill.
I felt like in the movies!
The view is breathtaking.
Not only when you enjoy your coffee in the morning and the sea stretches down to your feet. Or at night when you go to sleep with hundreds of lights on the retina. Each time it is unique moment and a unique vibe.
Dimitris has 4 villas: Georgia (the complex star, the name comes from the miracle girl in his life), Aneta, Ourania and Eirini.
Georgia has 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a kitchen and can accommodate up to 4 couples.
Aneta has an apartment downstairs and one upstairs. Both spacious. The villa can accommodate up to 9 people.
Ourania also has an apartment downstairs and one upstairs and can accommodate up to 9 people.
Irene has 2 apartments and can accommodate up to 6 people.
The complex is designed and built so that you may have intimacy if you want it. Or not, if you go in large group, as we did.
Each villa has its own pool and a large common kitchen, with a huge terrace where you can dine. And where you can see a sensational sunrise.
Dimitris' mother cooks divinely. It may not be the subject of the article, but she has cooked four main dishes and two desserts for a band of greedy people.
I left the place with olives and olive oil packed, and not like those that any tourist could buy there.
When asked for accommodation in Lefkada, I found myself saying "I have a friend that..."
How can you not go back there?
Was a beautiful vacation. Perfect villa with all we needs. The view is amazing , the facilities and hospitality of Mourkas family was great.
Best place for a greek holiday. We absolutely loved it. First we were in Villas Panorama in 2013, and now we came back. Dimitris is the best host anybody can hope for. 100% recommended
