Efelli Villa

Owners description

Villa Efelli is a charming seaside villa located near the peaceful fishing village of Lygia on the shore of the Ionian Sea in northwestern Greece, and across from the Paxi and Corfu islands. Its location, its secluded beach and the view it offers make this villa an ideal romantic or family retreat for absolute relaxation and tranquillity.

Built on a hillside that gently slopes into the beach, the house boasts a stunning view of the coastline and the open sea. Spectacular sunsets are a daily luxury and can be seen from every angle of the property. Equally beautiful are the usually crystal clear star-filled nights that can be enjoyed unobstructed from the open patio-deck or the beach. Lush greenery, olive trees, and sandy beaches with pristine blue water surround the property. The beach in front of the property is secluded, as very few people have access to it. The crystal clear blue water is full of the beautiful volcanic reef and sea life, which makes it ideal for swimming and snorkelling. Boat owners can anchor right in front of the house and easily explore the nearby beaches and islands. The villa’s interior is full of character that gives a genuine feel of a traditional Greek home.

Antique furnishing, paintings and unique art fill this beautiful space.
