Paros Villa is a contemporary villa rental in the Cyclades that blends and settles into the landscape as effortlessly as the sun kisses the Aegean waves.
How would you describe Villa Lefkada in a nutshell?
Villa Lefkada is an eco-friendly villa on the beautiful island of Lefkada with unique architectural elements that’s embedded in its natural environment. We are close to some of the most beautiful beaches of the Ionian Sea.
What was the inspiration or story behind Villa Lefkada?
My father started to build the villa around 15 years ago in the beautiful village of Agios Nikitas where we spent our holidays since we were kids. But, unfortunately, we lost him, so the project came to a standstill. A few years ago, we decided to restart the building process, initially just as a place for us to stay. But as time passed, we decided with our family friends (who bought the adjacent villa) that we would open them up for guests as well. The concept and the construction have been a family project we all loved.
How would you describe the atmosphere and interior design?
I’d describe it as bohemian, unconventional. It’s quite unique because of all the natural elements and materials that have been used. When you walk barefoot through the villa, you have an amazing sense of the natural world. The interior design is very minimal and elegant and most of the furniture has been hand-built, creating a relaxing and ecocentric atmosphere. But there’s also a sense of luxury because of all the high-end fittings and hand-picked decorative elements around the house.
To you personally, what is so special about the villa?
I love the smell of the house — the wood and natural materials — and the views are amazing too! It’s so relaxing just watching the sunset and the sea.
Is Villa Lefkada best suited for adults or also families with children?
It’s 100% suitable for adults and the only thing that concerns me with children is the different levels of the villa. We’ve taken every measure required by law (and more) to ensure it’s a safe space for children. Nevertheless, parents should be aware of the terraced surroundings.
