Cocooned in the vibrantly verdant, pine-aromatic woods of Lefkada’s northwest coast, and yet just a couple of minutes’ stroll from the irresistible azure waters of the Ionian Sea below, Villa Crisopelea has few rivals when it comes to location. This magnificence is matched by the property’s generously proportioned interiors, and by its extensive, hedonistically equipped wrap-around terraces. Accommodation at Villa Crisopelea is spread over three floors. The main entrance takes one into a fabulously voluminous open-concept communal area, comprising a spacious living room, with large sofas gathered around a decorative fireplace, a beautiful bespoke half-wood, half-polished concrete dining table, and a stunning kitchen with top-spec appliances, a central island-table and hand-crafted wooden cabinets that merge with polished concrete work surfaces. The generous splendour of this airy, bright space, the high wood-beamed ceilings, and the quality of the fixtures, fittings, furnishings and flooring, set the tone for the rest of the property, while banks of French windows open out onto the surrounding terraces, guaranteeing a seamless indoor-outdoor lifestyle. An archway between the dining table and the kitchen area leads to a hallway, at the end of which is the first bedroom, a lovely double with en-suite shower room and access to the outdoor areas. Stairs in the hallway lead up and down to more bedrooms.
On the first floor are three bedrooms, two doubles and a double-twin. Both the spacious doubles have superb shaded sea-view balconies, four-poster beds and luxurious en-suite shower rooms. The smaller double-twin also has its own en-suite shower room and sea views. Back in the hallway on the ground floor, stairs lead down to the lower ground floor, which is home to two more double bedrooms, a smaller one with en-suite shower room, and a larger one with en-suite shower room and access to the surrounding terraces. Between them is a spa room with Jacuzzi, hydromassage/steam room, a gym and a shower room.
The lower ground floor also accommodates a laundry room and a guest WC. Al fresco life at Villa Crisopelea revolves around the large sea-facing terraces that fan out in front of the property. Accessed from all the ground floor rooms, these terraces incorporate a shady outdoor kitchen area with barbecue and sink, a large covered dining and sitting area, and a fabulously curvaceous infinity pool with beach effect shallow end. Views take in not only the alluring azure waters of the Ionian Sea, but also the green, tree-carpeted hills that descend to the beach below – just a short stroll from Villa Crisopelea.
