After an easy drive from Preveza airport, we were welcomed by Stella and Savvas, the owners, with great warmth and a glass of wine.
Stella Apartments are in a beautiful, peaceful, green location, but it's only about 10 minutes' drive from Nidri if you want tourist facilities. There are at least four tavernas within staggering distance (less than four minutes) although the nearest bakery and supermarket is a five minute drive round the bay (the bakery at Vlicho which you can see from the terrace at the Stella Apartments is amazing).
The apartments are on two levels: on the ground floor is the living room, kitchenette, small bathroom and a balcony, with a generous double bedroom, a larger bathroom and another balcony on the first floor. Everything is spotlessly clean and comfortable. Only No. 4, which we were, had no ground floor balcony. The aircon is efficient too! There are only five apartments, so the pool area is never too busy or noisy.
We rented a small motor boat for three days, which was well worth the cost and much more fun than the tourist cruises running out of Nidri. We island-hopped to Scorpios (Onassis' island) and tied our boat up by our table at a taverna on Meganissi and got to deserted beaches unreachable by road. You moor your boat up on the quay at the end of the garden.
One of our greatest pleasures while we were there was having pre-dinner drinks on the terrace by the bar and pool and watching the sun setting over the bay and mountains. Just beautiful!
After the location and the comfort of the apartments, the greatest assets of Stella Apartments are Stella and Savvas, the owners. They are helpful, kind, funny and great sources of information about what to see and where to go.
We've 'done' most of the Ionion Islands and had decided that Paxos was the prettiest, but having been to Lefkas, we've changed our minds. It's gorgeous, green, mountainous in the centre with traditional villages and picturesque little harbours and some beautiful beaches around the coastline.
One of our best holidays ever and being at the Stella Apartments was a major contributing factor. We couldn't have stayed anywhere nicer and have come home with plans to go back again. We've recommended it to everyone we've talked to.
