I often get asked by my wedding clients if I can recommend a villa on Lefkada that is perfect just for two people.
It can be for a couple that simply wish ‘to get away from it all’, a couple who want to stay close by to their wedding guests but desire some privacy and for a secluded and romantic hideaway for their honeymoon.
Whilst there are many stunning villas available, the majority are two to four bedroom houses aimed at families or groups of friends, which can feel large and empty with just two people occupying all that space.
So where on Lefkada can you find a luxury getaway that is ideally sized for a couple?
Described as “A stone-built cottage in traditional Ionian island style, Atokos Cottage is a rare find and a very romantic retreat with picture perfect panoramas.” We couldn’t agree more and it has the added benefit of being close by to the larger Atokos House for other members of your wedding party. Our wedding couple Jenny & Alex stayed here with their family in June 2015.
On the heart of Meganisi’s East coast, this lovely villa has breath taking sea views and a private infinity pool. Part of the Muses estate at Limonari, there are two other larger villas close by.
