Villa with pebble mosaics, next to the sea, in an estate of four acres with a private church and an olive grove over 100 years old. It has a wonderful view and provides a sense of absolute silence. Our villa is three minutes away from the beach by foot. It has three bedrooms, a large living room with a fireplace and a great view of the sea, fully equipped kitchen, marble floor with homemade pebble mosaics, mosquito nets on all beds and two large verandas with view of the sea. Next to our villa, down the beach you can find a small fish-tavern. Our villa is a perfectly safe place for families with children, because it’s surrounded by an estate of four hectares, filled with olive and almond trees, where your children can feel free and play games in a natural environment. In the estate there is a private chapel, where someone can organize a special wedding (at that chapel took place our, unforgettable to all, wedding ) or even a baptism and last but not least, it has enough parking space for everyone ! Our Villa is located in the northern part of Leros, in an area called Blefouti, only a kilometer away from the airport. In front of it, lies a beautiful and quiet bay. At the entrance of the bay, you can find a small desert island, called Stroggyli.The island is located in the Dodecanese Islands between, Patmos, Lipsi and Kalymnos, where someone can go daily in about 15 to 30 minutes via flying dolphin. Our friend Captain Manolis with his traditional wooden boat (called trehantiri), can take you to wonderful nearby islands (Aspronisia, Arki, Tiganakia, Chalavropa, Marathi) with emerald waters and traditional taverns. Excursions are organized by other tourist boats also. During the trip, Captain Manolis offers local delicacies, ouzo or raki and fruit. It ‘s an experience you shouldn’t miss!!!Leros is a beautiful and fully organised island with its central port Lakki, which is the second largest natural harbor of the mediterranean. Lakki was built by Italians, who produced beautiful homes and buildings, major roads, hospital, two marinas and is only 15 minutes away from our villa by car. The second smaller port of Leros is Agia Marina, with its fabulous old neoclassical houses, archaeological museum and nightlife. Next to Agia Marina, you can find Alinta, the main beach of the island with cafes and restaurants that mainly operate during the day. Five minutes away by car from Alinta, there are the Two Liskaria, which is another beautiful beach with beautiful waters where you can enjoy the sea while having a nice drink and grabbing something to eat from the bar located there.
All these are ten minutes away from our Villa by car.

Mind the pebble and marbles. Unfortunately, as in most islands in Greece, tap water is not drinkable.
We do not throw paper into the toilet.
Water is scarse especially in summer months, so the general use of water should be rational.
For cooking or for the kitchen in general, we carry water from special places known to the local people. If you want to be a local and refill your bottles as we do, let us inform you about these special places !
Προσοχή στα βοτσαλωτά και στα μάρμαρα.
Το νερό της βρύσης δεν είναι πόσιμο.
Δεν πετάμε χαρτιά μέσα στις λεκάνες των τουαλετών.
Το σπίτι εφοδιάζεται με νερό από υδροφόρες, άρα πρέπει να γίνεται λογική χρήση νερού.
We have just come back from a wonderful 3 week break in Leros.Maria was a lovely host. She met us at the port and gave us a guided tour of the island.Maria also went to the trouble of making a list of all the best beaches and restaurants.Maria was very attentive to our needs and went to extra effort to insure everything was great.She also introduced us to her cleaner and friend,who was great and brought us fresh veg and eggs.
The villa was 50m from a beautiful beach and there was a lovely Taverna there.Its in the north of the island and therefore quiet and unspoilt.
If you are looking for a quiet and simple vacation this is ideal.We have come back fully recharged,the island and the Villa are beautiful.
