Our Villa is a luxury villa rental with 4 en-suite bedrooms and private pool. The unique retreat nestles on top the hills above Nydri on east side of Lefkada. Its location offers spectacular panoramic views to the islands of Skorpios and Meganisi. Every aspect of the villa and its grounds has been expertly designed to provide guests with the ultimate in luxury and comfort.
From your hilltop retreat at the Villa, look out onto a stunning landscape. Fragrant lemon orchards and olive groves lie below; turquoise sea, islands and mountains shimmer beyond; a cooling breeze bears scents of jasmine and thyme, stirring the sweet-smelling pine trees on the mountains above.
Exquisitely designed and craftsman-built to a world-class standard, Villa is inspired by Emperor Octavian, who defeated Anthony and Cleopatra in the Battle of Actium in 31 BC at nearby Preveza. To reflect Octavian’s dominions, renowned interior designer Miranda Holland-Cooper has decorated the villa with rare fabrics, treasures and antiques from Britain, Europe, Egypt, India and China.
The grounds of the Villa have been designed to maximize your enjoyment of these outdoor spaces and appreciate the fantastic climate. The spacious patio with built-in barbeque adjacent to the large pool is a great place to have a party and the shaded outdoor dining area provides the perfect setting for al fresco dining. The landscaped terraces and gardens offer a variety of delightful secluded areas in which to relax in blissful serenity. The Jacuzzi garden, two sides of which give you views of the dramatic high mountains to the west over an olive grove valley, is best enjoyed at night as the night sky and stars are simply stunning! Guests will also love the fire-table during the cooler evenings of low season.
If you are looking for a luxury home, the real Greece, peace and tranquility but close enough to the hustle and bustle of a busy town with great restaurants and tavernas, the Villa is the ideal holiday retreat.
We have been coming to lefkas for 10 years. This is our 4th year staying at villa Octavius. Amazing views. Luxurious villa. Close to all amenities. Great hosts. Could not recommend it highly enough.
My family stayed here before and raved about the Villa Octavius when they returned from Greece. They promised to return and so they rebooked the Villa and invited me to come with them. I thought that maybe the Villa would not be as magical as they described but I was absolutely amazed by how it was presented, the views, and how the Villa contained everything needed. I am converted and now I am raving about it to my friends.
Second time visiting Villa Octavius. It is your own private villa away from the town but also within walking distance. The elevated position allows you to take on the beautiful scenery throughout the day and night of the islands, mountains and the sunrise It is as stunning as the pictures portray. The inside of the villa has everything and more and is well presented. Even private upstairs balconies from the bedrooms. The provision of a boat trip around the islands and the Ionian Sea is always a special day. Steve is very knowledgeable about the area; good restaurants, nice beaches in the area etc , Plenty of things to do on the boat trip like fishing, snorkelling, swimming and of course the lunch out. The pool and hot tub is kept very clean throughout the visit. The welcome pack is nice to see on arrival and has all you need after travelling So happy to have found this little piece of paradise. Definitely will return in the future. Kind regards
Our fifth visit , our hosts are as brilliant as ever . The location and view are as beautiful as before. Steve and Monica have tastefully refurbished our bedroom with a new luxury bed and an elegant original artwork . The planting in the grounds has matured and we are more than ever noticing the fauna especially the humming-bird hawk moths busily feeding from the flowerbeds. Breakfast on the terrace and afternoon swims in the pool have not lost their magic and now we have the addition of the magnificent new canopy over the fire pit area.
