The sheltered port and large bay of Vassiliki lies at the southern tip of Lefkas.
A leafy waterfront of tavernas and café bars leads to the ferry point for Kefalonia and Ithaca at one end and at the other … a long sandy beach.
Behind and to the sides of the port are hillsides of olive groves, pasture land, pine and cypress copses.
A deep valley cuts through the hillsides towards the beach. Warm katabatic winds flow down the valley for a few afternoon hours to create excellent windsurfing and dinghy sailing conditions within the bay. Along the beach there are 4 watersports centres.
Beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast are not far away.
To the side of this valley, on a hillside just under one kilometre inland from Vassiliki beach, are 4 individual and contemporary villas. Each villa has magnificent views over the surrounding valley and over Vassiliki Bay. The dramatic views extend past the bay to the neighbouring islands of Ithaca and Kefalonia.
Looking out to sea, Villa Arabella is on the far right of the four villas.
By day one can watch the sailing and boating activities within the bay and by night there is a theatre of twinkling waterfront lights.
Private swimming pool 7 x 4 metres & depth 1.60 metres
