The ground floor, contains a functional kitchen, while the first and top floors are transformed into cozy bedrooms.

Fantastic place to stay on Lefkada. Better than the fotos. Close to everywhere on the island. Most beautiful beaches reachable within 30 min drive. Amazing setting in the mountains with great views. Calm and cozy. Highly recommend.
