I spent a week at Pavezzo Country Retreat over the Easter holidays and I am very glad to say that It fulfilled more than my every expectation and I'm a somewhat demanding traveller. The place is absolutely beautiful and so elegant in its country-style simplicity. Do not be fooled though, the details one can find all around the common areas and in each house are by no means random...one can see the ( very charming!) owners must be avid travellers who enjoy exploring and finding unique decorative objects to bring back home. There is an atmosphere of understated sophistication at Pavezzo and a coziness which is very welcoming. The house I stayed in was called Agrabeli; I fell in love with it and don't think I need to say more... I really want to make sure I experience each house in future stays as they look so beautiful , each in its own unique way.
Breakfast was delicious, and service was excellent and friendly without any hint of obtrusiveness. The traditional dinner and lunch served for Greek Easter was great and the whole event was made very homely, thanks to the staff and owners. I'm also happy to say there was a diversity of delicious dishes that catered to guests like myself who are not fans of lamb and mutton etc ( the traditional Greek Easter Feast that is!). The village of Katouna is very pretty in its greenery and has a great small tavern serving local produce (delicious and not fussy!). Albeit the weather during my stay was unfortunately not the best, the staff at Pavezzo catered to every need so that the mood remained jolly amongst guests. I also want to add that this is the first time I visited Lefkada and that I was very impressed with the nature and fantastic beaches here...I shall definitely be coming back during summer months to dive in the turquoise waters and there is no place I'd rather stay than Pavezzo and its gorgeous and peaceful green mountain views...
