You are guaranteed utmost privacy at this home as you have no immediate neighbours making it the perfect getaway from the busy lives that many of us lead.The modern design of this property, expressed through stone, granite and wood fuses unobtrusively with the surrounding Lefkadian scenery, while its large windows and doors shower the interiors with plenty of natural light. Sophisticated taste and loving touches are the main ingredients used for creating this minimalistic but warm summer home. Pelican house has been equipped to be a home away from home and we aspire to provide all the things you could possible need for the duration of your holiday. This summer haven, perfectly equipped to welcome all clients including children offers supreme accommodation. Unwind on the natural stone terrace beside the organically shaped pool, perfect for a lazy swim or quick dip to cool off in the sunshine. Enjoy the beautiful views from the swing seat and come together at the outdoor dining area for a barbecue using local produce bought from the nearby town of Nidri a short ten minute drive away. Lefkas is hugely popular with watersports lovers with Nidri being home to many yacht and power boat charter companies. Down the road to Vassiliki and you will find a mass of windsurfers hitting the water in search of 'Eric', the wind that rushes down the mountain every afternoon. For the beach bums there are some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe including Porto Katsiki around the west coast of the island and there are plenty of trails for those of you who enjoy walking or mountain-biking. Or, why not just chill out by the pool at your private villa and watch the world go by below you!The owners of this private home live in Nidri and have worked in the area for the past nine years making them very knowledgeable about all that you can do on the wonderful island that is Lefkada. If you need any assistance in booking flights, car hire or any trips you would like to do they are more than happy to help. It will be them that you email and speak to on the end of the phone so no middle man involved guaranteeing the best price and service available. We are one of few villas on the island to have a rental licence ensuring that the house is maintained to a high standard and meets rental requirements.More

So pleased you loved the house, the slightly longer drive up (10 - 15 mins) keeps all the tourists away so you get the tranquility of the village all to yourselves!!

About the neighbourhood
Nidri, sometimes spelt Nydri, is the islands main tourist resort and has an absolutely stunning setting at the mouth of the long and impressive inlet of Vlycho bay. There is a spectacular view of the many tiny islands dotted around the turquoise blue sea, one of which is Scorpios, privately owned by the Onassis family.Nidri (Nydri) has everything for a great seaside holiday - a great variety of eating and drinking options, lots of boat excursions, plenty of water sports. The beach is very popular during the summer but for those of you looking for bigger and slightly quieter beaches there are many to choose from on the west coast of the island, around 45 minutes awayNidri (Nydri) was once the playground of billionaire Aristotle Onassis and until his death, the area remained quite exclusive ...
Getting around
A car is a must for staying at Pelican's House but also the best way to get around the island. You can drive around the whole island in 2 hours and there are so many places to see and visit including some of Europe's best beaches on the west coast.
