Charming villa with exceptional view on the islands from Ithaque and Cephalonie
With its simple design, villa Katsika will enchant you: a 4000 meters plot with olive trees, carob trees and strawberry trees …an outstanding situation for a peaceful stay, enjoying the exceptional sea view in an idyllic setting.
Around the villa, the Mediterranean vegetation, with bougainvillea, rosemary, oleanders and lavenders, mixes with more tropical plants such as hibiscus, ficus, strelazia, and with the scents of jasmine and honeysuckle.
The recent construction is respectful of environmentally-friendly standards: Canadian well, good insulation, outside great pergolas but also ventilators for who wants more freshness.
Like a south facing balcony over a secret little pebble cove with a small path leading to it (only a five minutes’ walk), it offers a panoramic view of the Ionian sea, strewed with its mythical islands, Ithaca, Kefalonia, Meganissi, Arkoudi, Atoko …a real dream.
For early risers, the sunrise is absolutely marvelous, and later in the afternoon, when the sea breeze blows, it will nicely cool down the shady terraces.
If you are lucky enough to stay here at full moon, its silver reflections on the sea and the pool will fascinate you, during aperitif or grill time…
And when departure time has come, no doubt you will keep in mind these fantastic memories.
Please notice that villa Katsika is available for rent in July and August only.
You’ll arrive at the villa from the first floor. Once the car parked, you can walk on a lovely path (some meters) which brings you to the first room. Covered stairs accede to the ground floor where the first great enchantment, opening the door, is the wonderful sea view.
You join the terraces with their shady or sunny areas, as per your choice.
To South, you find a dining place under a plant-covered pergola, then on the west side the infinity pool with an incredible sea view with boats sailing on the wind.
Around the pool, are waiting the sun chairs and the hammock under the pergola.
The 8 m x 4 swimming pool with its turquoise water is built in two parts: the first part for those who prefer to swim by own depth (1,10 meters), the second part with a slope more deep down to 2 meters.
A shower in the middle of vegetation will delight you with this unending and wonderful view. On the side, a charcoal barbecue and 2 steps up the dining area overlooking the pool and the sea. The peace of a little Greek styled saloon will definitely seduce you.
The main room with kitchen is open of the living-room and the bright and panoramic TV place with big bay windows. An office just behind with a CD reader allows you to connect your favorite music.
A woody stair climbs to the mezzanine with 2 beds 90cm and climatisation.
Turning back to the entrance, there are independent toilets and the entrance hall entirely decorated with natural ochers.
Two steps up, the main sleeping room with 2 single beds 90cm, with possibility to join them together to have a 180cm bed with mattress pad. A seperate bathroom with Spa tub and toilets.
A tidying room with safe and washing machine.
Near the entrance, the second sleeping room with 160cm bed, its own climatisation, independent toilets, washbasin in the room and its shower on the south terrace ; you will love it… !
Villa Katsika is located on 2,5 km from the village of Sivota, Lefkada, with a beautiful view over the Ionian sea and its Islands.
Please note that the last kilometer to the villa is non-asphalted.
Hoping to see you very soon !
. Gorgeous infinite pool which was a really lovely temperature and always clean. We made full use of the BBQ area too. Philippe met us and recommended a few places for us to eat - all of which we tried and really enjoyed. The small harbour of Sivota is delightful and about 2 miles away - so very convenient. We hope to return.Oct 17 by Grosjean p.

A truly spectacular spot. We will dream about that pool area in the cold winter months! Thank you to Phillipe and Marilys as well for making us feel so welcome. We will be back for sure.Sep 17 by Megan R.
We have returned from an amazing family holiday at Villa Katsika. The villa is in a blissfully quiet location down a rather bumpy track near Sivota, a charming small harbour on Lefkada. The pictures are good but nothing prepares you for how mesmerising the views are. It is situated on the hillside amongst olive trees with uninterrupted views over the sea to Meganissi, Kefalonia and Ithaca. It is fairly well equipped with all the basics and the air conditioning was a good addition. Linen and towels provided were a good quality and clean. The infinity pool and outside space was excellent and very well used! We would like to thank Phillipe and his wife who were very welcoming on our arrival and went out of their way to make sure that we had good internet for my husband to work! There is a lovely secluded cove within 5 minutes walk down the cliff (not for the faint hearted) but well worth it and we spend several days snorkelling in the safety of this sheltered bay. Further a field our favourite beach was Megali Petri - truly stunning- the difficult drive is worth it. Plenty of shops, bakeries and small supermarkets with a 10 - 15 minute drive to make self catering easy. All in all a great place for a holiday away from the crowds. We came back thoroughly refreshed and wanting to return.Aug 17 by Richard J.
Unforgettable days at Villa Katsika! Unbelievable view! Everything was organised perfectly, we surely come back! Lisa and FamilyJul 17 by Elisabeth H.
I have a dream: to live in villa katsika....Jul 17 by Gobert T.
My sister and I stayed at Villa Katsika for a week and it was absolutely wonderful. The owners who live nearby gave us ideas about beaches, restaurants and shopping areas to visit and even took some lovely photos for us to record out stay. We can't recommend it highly enough, everything went without a hitch and was fabulous.Jun 17 by Laura P.
Nous avons passé une semaine de réve dans la villa Katsiky. L'accueil y est chaleureux et soigné et les prestations (premium) proposées sont excellentes. Les enfants ont apprécié la vue sur la mer depuis leur lit, la piscine à débordement avec la douche extérieure et le barbecue. Quant à nous, nous avons apprécié notre chambre indépendante et la machine Nespresso pour commencer la journée avec un bon café au bord de la piscine. Nous envisageons déjà de revenir l'année prochaine. Samuel et SylvieJun 17 by Ramat S.

Impossible to explain how it is so nice to spend time in this villa. We fall in love for the small peeble beach just 5' by foot path a little steep but so amazing. If you like grilled fish visit Yannis from Ionian Taverna on the small harbour from Sivota and you will be so happy. thanks to Anna and PhilippeDec 16 by Brosse H.
Villa Katsika is just a piece of cake. It is a place where the life is sweet and so quiet. Marilys and Philippe are very helpful and we discover many secret places on Lefkada Island.Dec 16 by Magali
Pour mon 3ème séjour c'est toujours l'émerveillement. Pour ce séjour en arrière saison l'ambiance est différente les jours plus courts et le soleil moins chaud mais c est encore plus paisible et la mer reste encore très agréable. Pour la villa c'est toujours que du bonheur. Nous reviendrons encoreDec 16 by Bene J.
