Cottages for 4
Location: Aphales Bay, Ithaca
Superb hideaway location, private estate, stunning views, extensive gardens, beautifully appointed accommodation, infinity swimming pool.
As you gradually wind down the tree-lined lane from Stavros your expectations of having found something very special begin to rise. Yet even so, once through the gate to the estate it still comes as a breathtaking surprise to behold the vista that is Levendis..
Glimpsed through a framework of olive trees and pines, which have had over a century to mature, the delicate pastel-tinted walls of the four cottages are scattered amongst the seven acres of this olive-covered hillside, which sweeps down to the shore below.
The cottages exude quality – traditionally styled and beautifully appointed. Each comfortably accommodates up to four people. There are two bedrooms elegantly dressed with exquisite linen and the superb bathroom has western style plumbing. There is a fully fitted modern kitchen and a delightful open-plan lounge provides relaxation. Refreshingly cool polished stone floors are a feature throughout. Large windows and double doors frame the glorious views and open onto spacious patios draped with flowers and creepers.
You will find yourself walking along enchanting stone paths bordered by fresh springs of rosemary and having long romantic dinners under archways draped with vines. You will swim in the translucent waters of Aphales bay beneath the cottages and watch the limestone cliffs on the other side of the bay turn from natural light grey through orange, pink and then mauve as the sun sets.
Amidst this atmosphere, service is of paramount importance with the emphasis on relaxation away from hectic living. The light meal on your arrival, breakfast for your first morning, books and detailed maps are provided. Car hire, boat and yacht charter can be arranged. Holidays here will be tailor made to your requirements.
Guests at Levendis find serenity, silence and enchantment at every step. Spending time under the shade of huge old olive trees, contemplating the splendid views of the sea, watching golden eagles glide overhead or falling asleep to the cry of the Scops owl.
This is part of the way of life in Ithaca, and recharging batteries by experiencing such delights is why Mal and Speros had a dream, and it has been realised.
