Villa Avra has one of the most dramatic views over Lakka Bay.
A stepped pathway (uneven in parts so possibly a challenge for those with a mobility problem) leads from the villa to Lakka waterfront, skirting a beach and olive groves, in just 10 minutes. The beach below, and a small taverna, is just a 3-minute walk away. The olive grove path has a string of lights from tree to tree so that the walk by night is made easy.
A narrow car track leads from Lakka, up a hillside of olive groves towards the lighthouse on the west coast. Three quarters of a kilometre up this track are the private grounds of Avra.
The owner, Yannis, is a local carpenter and the finishing of the interiors is to a high standard. A modern kitchen, spacious bedrooms and large en suite wet rooms.
The villa has privacy. Yannis and his wife, Voula, live quietly on a lower hillside terrace but Avra does not overlook them and they do not overlook Avra.
A large poolside terrace provides for both sun and shade - a pergola covers the dining area. A barbecue area includes a sink.
Avra looks down to the clear turquoise sea of Lakka Bay. The views take in the mountains of the Greek mainland.

"We are coming to the end of a glorious week at Villa Avra - what an amazing villa!
We are keen to re-book for next year at approximately the same time."

"We really enjoyed our stay at Avra in Lakka back in June, despite the unimaginably awful weather! Just our luck as the UK was basking in its heatwave.
I just want to say that the owners of Avra were absolutely delightful – really friendly but unobtrusive and the house itself was gorgeous as well as being spotlessly clean. Dimitris was really helpful too – nothing was too much trouble!
The only slightly negative feedback is that I think your website should explain that the walk down from Avra into the village is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues! And you definitely need decent torches if returning to the house at night! As I say, it didn’t cause us any problems but I do think it is worth spelling out."

"We have to give it the Ronseal endorsement! It had everything you said it had and more - shame you can't put those views in a tin and take them back home with you!"

"We were lucky enough to be the very first guests at Villa Avra. The villa has surpassed all our expectations, it really is perfect in every way. The friendly owners have lovingly created a holiday home that has everything you need and more. The location is perfect for the beach and Lakka Town. We couldn't ask for more and will definitely be coming back."
