Villa Daphne has a private patio with furniture, cloam oven, B.B.Q and a private swimming pool (8,5m length 4m width and 1,55m depth). A natural stoned paved terrace and patio has sunbeds for the guests to use. Landscaped gardens surround the properties and at night, the pathways and the pool are lit. Sea and hill views.
Sea views stretch beyond the silver green leafed olive groves and towering hills stand proudly behind these private properties. This is an idyllic situation for families with children or a group of friends who would desire some privacy and seclusion and yet not feel totaly isolated. These professionally designed properties replicate the characteristics of the local churhes; each one incorporates some traditional features. Earthy colours have been painted outside wlilst pale shades have been used inside. Round, skylight windows allow circles of natural light to fall on softly lit shuttered rooms. Large lamps create soft shadows, whilst watercolour paintings, from a Lefkadian artist, hang unobtrusively on the walls.
Life in the hills adds a different dimension to a holiday. If you are not fancying a swim in the pool then take a walk up one of the agricultural tracks that skirt the hillsides and enjoy the fresh air and views. A camera and a pair of binoculars are a must. It is impossible to resist the urge to examine the wildlife in detail. Agios Nikitas village is not too far to walk on a cool day. There are tavernas, mini-markets, a few small shops, and a lovely safe beach for children to swim from. You may be lucky enough to buy your own fresh fish from the fisherman for your B.B.Q.
Cooking in a cloam oven knocks cordon bleu into a cocked hat. The flavours of jacked potatoes and baked fresh fish are simply delicious, especially if seasoned with herbs straight out of the gardenand savoured with a good local wine. Dining outside in the evening becomes an indulgence and a luxury to be relished with friends.
Although the pretty village of Agios Nikitas is only a 20-25 minute walk downhill; it feels a longer and much hotter journey back. The village and beach is less than 10 minutes by car. Of course, we would like to encourage you to use the car for exploring the wonders of this beautiful island!
