Volpetta's cottage is a 2 – storey vacation house situated uphill over Agios Ioannis Beach in Lefkada island, about 7 minutes' walk from the beach.
It is a 116m2 vacation house of an architect's family from Ioannina, who spend their summers in this, and offer hospitality for 2-3 weeks every year.
Set in a private area of 3500 square meters, in the forest, under Faneromeni's monastery, filled with trees and flowers, open to the cooling sea breeze in the afternoons.
The view to Ionian Sea, the mountains of Epirus and Corfu, as well the landscape of Lefkada Island, is breathtaking.
This house designed in complete harmony with the landscape, beautifully decorated and equipped by care and personal work of the owners, makes quests feel at home .

On the ground floor there is a large open plan living room (fire place, sofa bed, armchairs, TV, radio, CD player), an elegant dining area and a very well equipped kitchen. There is also a master bedroom and a bathroom. Every space leads out on to the garden, the raised courtyard with pergola and the outdoor dining.
On the upper level there is a master bedroom, a twin room and a small WC.
There is also a balcony and a terrace here and the view is magnificent from everywhere.

I was really satisfied with the service, especially when reaching the house for the first time which without their kind assistance, I wouldn` t have been able to find it. Overall very friendly service in a clean house.
The colorful house, painted with warm colors is very cozy with a touch of authenticity. But the most important place is the very spacious terrace overlooking the Ionian sea where my family and I spend much of our time.
The location is superb. The house is in a 150 meters altitude and has a magnificent view to the sea and the surroundings, reaching even the coasts of Preveza, 14 miles away. A part of the coast is used by kite surfers, offering a great variety of colors far in the sky. The sea breeze doesn`t let you feel hot during the summer elevated temperature.
I enjoyed very much my staying there, especially in the afternoon, when following a morning full of swimming I was admiring the view from the terrace drinking a cold glass of the excellent local wine,
