Villa Lygian is a charming, five-bedroom villa in the quaint village of Katouna on the Greek island of Lefkada. The villa boasts sweeping sea views and is only a short stroll from the coast. Perhaps the standout feature here is the pool terrace, surrounded by a beautiful tree and flower garden, and a barbeque area and dining table – ideal for balmy, alfresco afternoons. The villa is spread across three spacious levels and can comfortably sleep 10 – making it perfect for a group stay.
Kick back on the built-in day beds surrounding the private pool or relax on a soft, grassy spot. The pool also benefits from a handy outdoor shower, a shaded area with bean bags for when you need some rest from the warming sunshine, and a fancy outdoor cinema. From here, glass doors lead directly inside the villa, with a spacious living room, dining room and a fully equipped country-style kitchen. There are also two bedrooms on this floor – one king-sized bedroom with a private terrace at the back – an en-suite sofa double bedroom, as well, as a shared bathroom on this floor.
Going up a level, you’ll find the remaining three stylish bedrooms. There’s a king-size bedroom with an elegant marble en-suite bathroom – equipped with a Jacuzzi bath – and a large balcony overlooking the coast. There’s also a twin and double bedroom, with a shared bathroom and a balcony. On the second floor, there’s another kitchen, a living room with a working fireplace, charming antique furniture and a television. If that wasn’t enough, there’s also a bathroom on this level, a balcony with a sitting and dining area and a small bar.
Looking to explore the surroundings? Lefkada town is a short 10-minute drive away, and the villa benefits from its parking space. In Lefkada, you can wander through the wild olive groves or make a beeline for one of the beaches. All the way south, you’ll find stunning little bays and inlets.

Villa Lygian is in the sleepy village of Katouna on the laidback Greek island of Lefkas. There is sea access, less than a kilometre from the villa. Although it’s linked to the Greek mainland via a small bridge, Lefkada remains one of the Ionian’s most unspoiled destinations. Katouna is a classic Greek village and retains is old-world charm with its pretty cobbled streets and pastel-coloured houses. There’s a small harbour and a marina lined with restaurants, cafés and bars, as well as a few café-dotted squares.
The coastal village of Ligia, (1.5km) boasts some of the finest fish tavernas on the island, mini markets, bakeries and shops. Katouna is an excellent location, almost equidistant from both Lefkada town and Nidri, where you’ll find great restaurants and shops.
For venturing further afield, Lygia is about 1.5km away. Here, you’ll find more shops and restaurants. You can drive 10 minutes to Lefkada town where you can spend afternoons wandering the cobbled streets, exploring the surrounding olive groves, or lazing on one of the unspoilt beaches. Egremn and Kathisma are both popular. The waters are usually clear and perfect for snorkelling and swimming. There are also more restaurants and cafes here – look out for oven-baked goodies like swordfish and stuffed aubergines. For a dose of history, the picturesque Faneromeni Monastery, dating from the 17th century, is your go-to. It has delicate stained-glass windows and a peaceful courtyard. You could also visit the crumbling Castle of Agia Mavra, located near the entrance of the island.
You could also hop on a boat to explore the nearby islands. Scorpios Onassis Island, Poet Valaoritis, and Meganisi are some of the beautiful islands you can visit by renting a boat or joining a boat trip. You can reach more isolated sandy beaches with glass-clear waters for swimming.

How to reach Lefkada island
You can easily reach Lefkas by car from mainland Greece, via the bridge connecting Lefkada with Aitoloakarnania. Lefkada island does not have an airport.
Villa Lygian has a private swimming pool, grassy spots for children to play and a fantastic spot overlooking Leftkada’s coast. The island boasts plenty of beaches, with calm and clear waters for children to swim and snorkel. Leftkada town with its pretty pastel-houses and family-friendly cafes and restaurants lining the harbour is also a great place for families to spend the day.
For a dose of child-friendly history, you could visit the 17th-century Faneromeni Monastery or the 14th-century crumbling Castle of Agia Mavra. Or, for another fun day trip, head to the Dimossari Waterfalls near the village of Nidri. Here, the whole family can take a dip in the cooling waters.
From Leftkada, there are also boat trips that visit the surrounding small islands as well as the secluded beaches and coves with most trips stopping for swimming and lunch. Or, you could always hire your own boat.
