It would be hard to find a more beguiling location on Lefkas to be at one with sand, sea and sky.
The kilometre long stretch of Kathisma beach, on Lefkas’ north west coast, will appeal to all ages and offers watersports, sunbeds and sun umbrellas, tavernas and bars but also natural and naturist beach areas.
“Asteria” in Greek means “Stars”.
Villa Asteria sits privately on an upper hillside terrace above Kathisma beach. Asteria’s neighbour is Villa Fegari ("Moon") – each villa has been carefully designed to ensure privacy and each villa’s pool is located at the far end of each property.
The access track ends at the two villas so no passing traffic.
Asteria is surrounded by hillside pine and cypress trees. Apart from Villa Fangari, the nearest neighbour is 200 metres away.
The villa’s views are dramatic and theatrical: an immediate foreground of green forest, the shimmering whiteness of beach sand and pebble, the froth of lapping waves, a chalky turquoise sea and in the distance (on clear days) the outline of Paxos and AntiPaxos.
The sun sets directly opposite. Stargazing is a delight with little artificial light in the area to diffuse the clarity.
Villa Asteria is a comfortable and elegant home. Large interiors open out to wide terraces to capture the views and to allow for both sun and shade. A special escape from the crowds in a very special location.
Private swimming pool 10 x 5 metres and depth 1.0 – 2.2 metres (with shallow end steps)
Maid service & linen change once per week (additional services can be arranged as optional extras on request).
Location: car hire essential. Kathisma beach is 300 metres below but the access road is 1 kilometre (a 3 minute drive). Kathisma beach has good tavernas. The pretty seaside village of Agios Nikitas is just a 5 minute drive and has a good selection of tavernas, supermarkets and shops above its beach. A bigger selection of shops, fruit and vegetable markets, and restaurants can be found in Lefkas Town – a 15 minute drive. The beaches of Porto Katsiki, Egremni, Milos and Pefkoulia are all nearby.
Accommodation: ground floor of an open-plan sitting room (WiFi/LCD TV/Bluetooth music system), dining area and kitchen (dishwasher/microwave); one double bedroom; one twin bedroom (beds can be made into a double); bathroom with shower. First floor of one double bedroom; bathroom with bath and shower.
Air-con throughout. Mosquito screens on all windows. Washing machine. Gas barbecue. Safe. Pool towels provided. Hairdryers. For toddlers there are safety gates on the stairs.
During peak season (mid July to mid August), depending on the wind direction, the distant sound of music might be heard from the beach music bar but at a distance of 500 metres it will not be invasive.
The owner asks for a refundable security deposit of £870.
