Thanks to Di, Nieda and Mike for making this the "Best Holiday" and none of us want to go home. Our 3rd return visit was the greatest place to celebrate my birthday with family and friends, thanks for my beautiful Birthday cake and wine to start the celebrations as soon as we arrived. Everything was sparkly clean when we arrived, as always. Extra thanks this visit to Nieda for baby sitting for us, so much appreciated. We will certainly looking for next years flights on arrival home. We have left a few inflatable toys for your next guests. Thanks again for all that you have done xxx
Thanks Becs for this great review. I am so thrilled that you all had such an amazing time again, on this your 3rd return visit. I was only sorry that I could not be with you all to help celebrate your special Birthday holiday. Nieda and Mick also really enjoyed helping to look after your little ones, they were so happy having such a great time. Thanks again for your return booking, Kindest Regards Di
Second Home - Amazing Holiday
By Elise on 10-Aug-2018
Hi Di! We have had an amazing holiday, we all really enjoyed being back. We have only had one day of bad weather and we had a fabulous day out on a Yacht after the rain meant our catamaran was cancelled. The Villa, as always, was super, so well managed and equipped. I still love the 3 shutter systems where doors, mosquito nets and shutter all open into the cavity wall, so clever. Another fabulous two weeks on Lefkada. We do love it here. Thank you so much xx E
Outstandingly Relaxing 5 star Home from Home
By Kathy on 28-Jul-2018
Hi Di, Thanks so much for letting us share this absolutely amazing Villa and Pool with us. We have had such an fantastic time and visited so many of the surrounding Tavernas and beaches. Every day K has been up early to get her run in before it was too warm, such spectacular views from every direction, which change so rapidly as the direction and sun change. Harrys Bar in the Village is our favorite with Syvota as the best place for fish restaurants. We do not understand how you, Nieda and Mick, have managed to keep the Villa looking so clean and fresh, still feels like a new build. Thanks again for sharing, we will be back soon. D & K
Always the best holiday Highly recommended
By Frank on 20-Jul-2018
Hi Di, Just a quick email to pass on our thanks again for allowing us to stay at your lovely villa for the third time - we have once again enjoyed every minute of it. The villa is just absolutely lovely and we spent most of our second week just enjoying it with the odd little walk and trip to Syvota. We have collectively decided that this is ALWAYS the best holiday that we do - it never fails. Thank you again for making it available to us and thanks also to Nieda and Mick for all of their help. Thank you again Frank
Really wonderful bolt-hole - Amazingly peaceful
By Rob on 10-Jul-2018
Villa was great. Thank-you so much for sharing it. You can see the time and effort spent to get the details right, and still trying to figure out how you got everything up there, as we understand a lot came from UK. Although temperatures were consistently 30+ degrees, we had good pool time each day (from about 3pm) and there was ample space for everyone to do there own thing when hiding from the heat. Grandpa is more acclimatised to the heat and gets up early, so most of his time was spent around the pool We went out to eat every-other night, mainly to Sivota, which is a great little village/port. Restaurants there suited both Jane’s desire for seafood, Tom’s like of traditional meals, and Matt’s preference of Pizza/Burger (at the Family Bar). When we did stay in the oven worked fine, and also used the barbeque on a couple of the days. Had the hire car from Vasili. They were there on time when we arrived at the airport, and again at the end. We had a FIAT Multipla. It was fine to drive, and had good space for us + luggage. After a human navigational error on our first full day, we ended-up going to the supermarket on the other side of Sivota (Scottish lady on the tills), rather than the other you suggested…..although we sometime got bread both there as well as the one on the road to Nidri. I completely fell in love with the view of the bay as you drop-down towards Nidri from the Villa. Anyhow….thanks so much for letting us stay there, and being so reasonable with the arrangements. Really appreciated. You have a really wonderful bolt-hole there!
Stunning views from stunning villa
By Sheila on 23-Aug-2015
This is a fabulous place to spend a relaxing week. The villa is situated above the village with gorgeous views of the sea and over nearby islands. The villa is spacious and private. You do need a sturdy car if you want to explore beyond the village and to access some lovely local beaches and restaurants. Enjoy!
Good Morning Sheila and your family, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this review. We are all so pleased that Villa Dionysos and the Island of Lefkas provided you all with such an amazing holiday.

Kindest Regards Diana

What a fantastic villa set in a ideal location, away from the more populated resorts but close enough to be there in minutes if that is what you are looking for. The villa really has it all, size, space, facilities and an absolutely fantastic view towards the islands of Ithaka and Kefalonia. Thanks to all the 'team' for not only looking after the villa and the pool for the two weeks we were there, but for being so friendly and sharing their local knowledge with us. We all thoroughly loved the villa and its location, and needless to say we had a fantastic relaxing holiday. We would highly recommend a tour around the island and stop off for lunch at the laughing Goat in Karya village square. Also a must is the butchers in Sivros who insists that you pick your own cuts of meat from his fridge before cooking them to perfection for you. Technology has really past this guy by as he writes your bill out on the tablecloth when you have finished your meal. Not al la carte but what a memorable experience! Loved the drive down to the shingle beaches of the east coast and the early morning swims. Beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast but be prepared for the crowds! Great range of water sports in Vassiliki and we would recommend a trip around the islands on the MS Christina.Highly informative and great value. Finally thanks to Di and her family for making booking so easy and all the help and advice beforehand. We would definitely recommend this villa to friends and relatives.
Good Morning James and your family, What a wonderful review to read as my first email of the day. Thank you so much for taking the time to provide this review. We are all absolutely thrilled that Villa Dionysos and the Island of Lefkas provided you all with such an amazingly successful holiday. Your kind words and positive feedback are so appreciated, this makes myself and my support team friends efforts so worthwhile. I am so pleased you all had a wonderful holiday and that my Villa provided you will all with your home comforts. Yours comments regarding your Island experience are all so helpful for new potential guests, thank you again. I hope we will be able to share our Villa with you all again someday.

Villa Dionysos with 1 year old-our 1st Holiday
By Saffron on 26-Jul-2015
My daughter & I headed off for our first trip abroad & it was a success thanks to the fabulous Villa Dionysos. The villa is so well equipped with cot, toys, kitchen wear (cups, cuttlery, plate, bows for little one) I didnt have to cart anything. We got a car with a car seat from the recommended car hire as well which was excellent. The weather was hot but the shade for playing outside made it easily bearable. The pool toys & gorgeous clean pool made Freya's holiday! The villa is in walking distance to beautiful local restaurants highly recommended for Greek chops which are to die for & a bargain. A short drive are beaches both sandy & pebbly which are also well equipped with brolly's/ beds to hire & taverna's for drinks, food & more shade. You can venture our or just chill out with the amazing view, barbeque & local wine ( so cheap & v quaffable). We would definately return & recommend to anyone with kids for both privacy, option to be noisy yet easy access to beaches & food. The villa is spotless, as said well equipped even with kids toys & games, DVD's & sky for amusement. Fantastic & highly recommended!
Good Evening Saffron, We are so thrilled to receive this lovely review and your positive feedback. Thank you so much for making the time to provide this review, I know your quiet time must be precious. We are so pleased that you all enjoyed yourselves so much and made full use of all the items we have supplied to help with youngsters. I know from experience how difficult it is to keep within your baggage allowance when travelling with children. With this in mind we shipped over many of our childrens useful toys, games and DVD's in the hope that they would be loved and played with again, wonderful to know they helped with entertainment in the shade. away from the sun. I have been over to the Villa myself recently and was so pleased to see that the Island is as always providing an idyllic holiday location. I am so pleased you all enjoyed visiting our local Taverna's and found the food and wine so delicious and great value. The Village Winery is a very interesting tour. I will pass on your feedback to my team of very treasured friends who are very dedicated to keeping the Villa well maintained and as clean as it was when we finished the build. Thank you once again. We hope we can be of help again in the future. Kindest Regards Di
By Pauline on 19-Jul-2015
We had a lovely week on our second holiday to this fantastic villa. The villa is in a stunning situation with friendly tavernas nearby and a 10 min drive to the beautiful port of Sivota below. The infinity pool looks towards Ithika and Kephalonia- an amazing place to unwind!
Thank you so much for providing your review. We were absolutely thrilled when you returned for your second visit. Your kind words and positive feedback are so appreciated, this makes all our efforts worthwhile. I am so pleased you all had a wonderful holiday and that Villa Dionysos again provided you will all your home comforts. I hope we will be able to share our Villa with you all again someday. Kindest Regards Diana
Luxurious villa with a spectacular view
By Joanne on 28-Jun-2015
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this gorgeous villa where Di has done much to make the stay as comfortable as possible. For example lots of items already at the villa which you would often have to pack eg adaptors, hairdryers and straighteners. We used the airconditioning on the first night but despite the very hot weather we never used it again as the villa is so cool inside. Di's friends who supervise the house were on hand but not obtrusive and it was nice to get some local knowledge from them. The pool and its view are what really make the villa but the island has so much going for it too. We took quite a while to decide whether to stay on this side of the island or go to the west where the beaches are reported to be much more sandy. We definitely made the right choice for us. Although the beaches are all pebbly as long as you have appropriate shoes then they are much prettier and quieter and the swimming is glorious. We did visit the west coast and we really enjoyed the different views. We ate at a restaurant called Panorama View near Kalamitsi and had the most spectacular view overlooking Kathisma beach and an excellent meal. We loved nearby Sivota where we had three excellent breakfasts at the Sivota Bakery and an evening meal at the Ionion Taverna. We loved Vasiliki too. Our local village restaurant 'Philipous' was low key but the food and serviice was excellent - we wished we had gone there more than once.The highlight of the holiday apart from the villa had to be the island cruise we did on the M S Christina. We had researched this before our holiday and the cruise definitely lived up to our expectations. We would very much recommend paying more for a smaller boat than the bigger, cheaper cruise boats. If we returned to the villa again we would definitely consider having a 4 x 4 vehicle as there were 5 adults in a medium sized car and the track up to the villa is very rustic! However this meant that the villa was in a quiet and peaceful place with a view to die for - exactly what we wanted. I would definitely recommend this villa to other people.
Dear J , thanks so very much for taking the time and effort to send in such a detailed review, this is so appreciated, We are blown away by your detailed feedback. We are so thrilled that you all had such a brilliant break at Villa Dionysos. Thank you also for providing all your additional information which may help other potential guests to make there holiday decision. We hope you will return again someday to spend more time enjoying the peaceful beauty of Lefkas, Kindest regards to you all, Diana
Fabulous views - a real "home from home"
By Mark H on 07-Jun-2015
It is a beautiful, clean, well equipped villa. The beds are really comfortable. We stayed with friends for a week and had the most fabulous time. We had some wonderful BBQ's and enjoyed the fact that we had no neighbours. The folder of information was very useful and Di was so helpful both before and during our stay. I could not recommend this villa highly enough and I am very fussy about where I stay. We all agreed that we will definitely be coming back! Thank you Di and family for sharing your beautiful home. Recommendations would be the water sports hire company Horizon www.horizonwatersports.co.uk and Lefkas boats wwwlekasboats.gr both in Nidri. The equipment was of a high standard, it was good value and the people were really accommodating. There is also a great butchers in Vasiliki for both meat and fish. Both companies
Good Morning Angela, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your lovely review comments. We are all so please you all had such a wonderful time that you will be re-booking at some point in the future, the best recommendation we could hope for. We also appreciate your recommendations for future guests water sports needs. Many Thanks again. Kindest Regards Diana
Beautiful luxury villa - wonderful holiday
By Paul B on 24-May-2015
We had a truly amazing holiday at this fabulous villa. The villa is stunning and immaculate. It has everything you could possibly need for ALL age groups. We went with our 3 children aged 6,6 and 1 and they were delighted that there were books to read and videos to watch at bedtime :-) We had a great time playing in the pool and relaxing by the poolside on the sun loungers. The views are amazing and the surroundings tranquil. During the day we headed to the various surrounding towns - all beautiful - to eat, shop and have a wander. Various places offer water sports and there are lots of details about all the local attractions at the Villa. We had such an amazing time that we've already booked to go back next year for longer! We definitely recommend this luxury villa. The Bradley Family.
Dear Paul B, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your review. We are absolutely thrilled with your kind words and positive feedback, this makes all our efforts worthwhile. When furnishing our Villa we had families like you in mind and shipped many of our children's redundant toys, games and videos for entertainment away from the sun. I am so pleased you all had a wonderful holiday and that Villa Dionysos provided you with all your home comforts. We are even more excited to have Booked you in again for next year, what better feedback for us than your repeat booking, It is amazing to hear that booking your flights this early has only cost 41% of this years flight cost, what a bargain. Thank you again. We look forward to helping you plan next years trip in 2016. Bye for now. Kindest Regards Diana
Fantastic Villa & Views
By TM on 17-May-2015
I stayed for a week in May 2015. The villa is absolutely immaculate & well maintained with the most spectacular views of other Greek Islands. It takes your breath away. The facilities are amazing and everything is there to cater for all ages even cuddly toys for the younger ones! Diana has left no stone unturned with everything well planned and included. Nothing is too much trouble for her. The people who come to clean and keep an eye on the pool are so friendly and will do anything to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend this to anyone, families etc, but don't just take my word for it - book it. I guarantee you will not be disappointed and will want to return as soon as possible.
Dear TM, Thank you so much for providing your review. We are absolutely thrilled with your kind words and positive feedback, this makes all our efforts worthwhile.

Kindest Regards Diana
An amazing stay
By Emma B on 31-Aug-2014
We had an amazing stay, the villa is very clean and well equipped. The pool area is wonderful, which my 2 nephews really enjoyed. The surrounding area is lovely and there's lots to do but a car is a necessity. However there is a taverna not to far if your willing to walk. Any body wanting a relaxing holiday with beautiful scenery this is a must for you! We will definitely visit again, thanks Di for an amazing stay!
Dear Emma, Thank you so much for taking the time to provide your review. We are so pleased to hear your kind words and positive feedback, my team and I really appreciate this. We strive to provide superior, yet homely, facilities. I am so pleased this enabled you all to have a wonderful holiday and that Villa Dionysos provided you with all your home comforts. Thank you again. We hope we can help you to have another exciting holiday at some time in the future. Kindest Regards Diana
