We organized this family vacation on this island Lefkada and before we were visiting many other places in Greece and islands but from all of them this is the island we will come back and visit each time we will talk about Greece. We arrive there as a couple with three kids and we were guided by Jimmy the administrator of the villa . You will hardly find a person like Jimmy so professional so patient so God willing and well prepared. There will not be any question or need that you will answer for him to do not have the right answer and the right information. At the Villa you will find Miss Kiki and Miss Maria who are the best helpers ever in a villa services. Kiki it’s a very good or the best probably cooker in terms of Greek traditional food . She will cook for you every morning whatever you think you want to eat if you want to eat Greek traditional food which is extraordinary she will cook if you want cakes pancakes big cakes eggs bacon omelettes whatever you are used to eat in the morning she will do it for you at The houryou will ask to get it. Be aware that Kiki is not speaking English so it would be better to be prepared for using Google translate but she is a person With empathy and most of the time she will understand whatever you are saying. She is living there so anytime anything you would need she will be there in order to help you. There is also Miss Maria which is speaking a very good English it’s a very kind person and for us she was answering The phone anytime time of the day or night we were calling her for a specific type of food or any other needs that we had she drove her car and she solves even in the middle of the night any kind of issues that we had because sometimes due to the kids we were unable to go out to search the taverna s in order to eat so we were calling Maria and she propose us the best Taverna on the island which will deliver through Maria any type of food we want it , like best fish best pizza best pasta everything. Both of them are to be remembered as such kind person they are and also for everything that they did for us no extra charges they are very humble and very kind a pleasure to have them around. The Vila is having two levels a down one Where you will find three big enough bedrooms and two bathrooms and also you will have a big dressing there and also you have a washing machine which will help you in case of need but Kiki can wash laundry for you also if you don’t want to do it by yourself. Rooms are having their own TV and AC The upper level is having the living room dining room and the kitchen which is having all appliances that you wish you can cook there you can deposit because it’s a big fridge you have a lot of ingredients to find there if you need . Also bear in mind that they have a big TV they have a PSP Consola but if you want to watch a movie or something you will not be able , so bring with you a hard and ensure that you bring your movies or whatever you want to watch in the resting time. From the living and the kitchen you will go out in two places one of the side of the house is having a resting place with arm chairs and silence to drink a coffee in the morning or in the right side you’ll find a lot of resting places tables chairs for eating outside the swimming pool which is gorgeous and also a bar where you can have a drink night time and they have techniques for making you able to plug your phone and listen your favorite music. The view from this part Is the best ever!!! The house is cleaned every day by KK and Maria they change the sheets they change the towels they clean everything the toilet it’s a very good cleaning service in the living to in the kitchen to and also outside you will find the house all the time very clean. Any needs in terms of medicine or care for kids or any issues you have call Maria and she will help you with anything you need in terms of kids need or accidents or whatever hoping it will not be the case but for you to know. To go to the beach is very easy you can plan very unbelievable trips with a small boat to visit all islands which are around Including Onassis island It’s very hard to find a place like this especially when you are with kids in terms of the place ! You ll feel relaxed and enjoyed even the kids are making a mess arrownd😁 However this place is perfect for any type of families like only couples or if you want to go together with the grandparents or any other relatives you can go without a doubt it will be a dream Important to mention the food on the island it’s not expensive I found it quite cheaper on the island and also on any island we went with the boat and the food the fish is amazing it’s crazy amazing and cheaper. I intend to stay in touch with this team Kiki Maria Jimmy they are really great persons with a really great place to handle and I promised myself that each time I want to go to Greece I’ll go there Because I believe for me will be very hard to find another place which can Compete with this place!!

Its been a while since we returned to Lefkada, even though it has always retained a special place in our hearts since our first visit in 2013 We always go to Greece at least once a year for the last 20 years and have explored many recommended locations both on the mainland and the islands on our search for the our ultimate Greek paradise as our end goal would be to eventually purchase a villa for retirement purposes (Brexit willing!) Through these journeys we have made many friends and acquaintances and fallen deeper and deeper in love with Greece but although we do still want to discover new Greek gems we now realise that there are a handful that can never be bettered and Villa Kastro falls into this category Our initial villa search criteria is WiFi, Air Conditioning, Pool, Sea view 2+ bathrooms and after that its down to the gallery pics, location and eventually clear and timely communication with the owners / manager. Kastro scores 10/10 on all the above, Jimmy and his team at IMAGINE Lefkada work seamlessly with Villa Kastro’s owners to deliver the most unique micro-hotel experience to date that we have experienced. I have coined the phrase Micro-hotel as its smaller than a boutique hotel, being just you with your friends and family but with the same top notch services and facilities. I appreciate that evaluating reviews is never easy as everyone has different standards and expectations so by way of reference, I would say this is a villa that would equal the standards of the “W” and St. Regis Hotel’s – two of my favourite chains. Our family has a mixed need – I travel a lot for work so tire very easily of hotel rooms and making conversation with too many other holiday guests – whereas my wife loves the luxury and services of a 5 star hotel. Villa Kastro with its on-site staff, combined with the luxury (read custom bath towels, luxurious sunbeds, poolside bar area , saltwater pool, Nespresso machine with Nespresso pods– all-inclusive breakfasts that can keep you going to tea time and a well-stocked fridge with fruit and soft drinks) of the best hotels we have ever stayed in with the privacy of a villa minus the need to be forced into making polite conversation with other guests, buying over-priced drinks and constant tipping !! Your rooms are cleaned every day, and towels refreshed without the need to ask and the attention to detail is outstanding. Try asking where to buy charcoal for the wonderful poolside BBQ and you will return to find it ready made up complete with firelighters inserted and matches beside it (not to mention it will be miraculously cleaned by the next day). After your all-inclusive breakfast the dishes are removed and washed for you so the normal chores of staying in a villa are completely removed. Kiki is also be happy to provide occasional superb traditional Greek evening meals at a very small extra charge. Villa Kastro has multiple areas for relaxing whether you need space to think, work or read including at least three (maybe more) sets of quality patio furniture on different levels and the excellent bar area with the unique circular multi-person chill-out poolside sofa. The minute the silver electric gates close shut, you enter a cosseted and salubrious world worthy of any “A list celeb”. One morning I even amused myself looking down the olive tree covered hillside and back up the mountain to guess where a possible paparazzi photographer may best hide for a lucrative swimming pool shot !! I must just mention the new saltwater pool complete with diving board – (another rarity). The pool is crystal clean and feels soft as silk on the skin. If you really want to make the most of most of your day try getting up at sunrise – about 7am in early September, locate yourself near the bar at the far end of the property and gaze out across miles of desert flat indigo sea to the mountains beyond, defined by an orange backdrop as the earth hurtles towards the morning sun. Initially appearing as just an orange point on the mountain and very rapidly launching into an awesome globe that heralds the beginning of another day in paradise. That was my morning ritual – a cup of good coffee and a spectacular sunrise – unbeatable!! Additional extras that you need such as car hire, boat hire (yes, you really should visit the island of Meganisi during your stay) and restaurant recommendations will be dealt with by Jimmy and the Imagine team. We would recommend using Jimmy with his perfect English and impeccable standards as it makes your life far easier and the prices are still the same if not cheaper than trying to book yourself. Well, that’s all I really have time for but hope it helps – you can read my review from 2013 also if you like but all I can say is the experience just gets better with time and we won’t be leaving it another six years before we return – ENJOY! And many thanks to Jimmy , Maria, Kiki and the owners for another amazing Greek memory !!

This was our first trip to Lefkada with my family (3-kids and my parents) total of 7. We were greeted by Jimmy and escorted to the villa from the main town so that we don't get lost. This was very helpful. When we got there, we were greeted by the most accommodating and friendly house guest, Mrs Kiki, which took care us for our week stay at the villa. She also had prepared a spectacular traditional dinner for us that even impressed my very discerning Greek parents. We knew from that moment one, we had picked a special place to stay in Lefkada. The villa is very comfortable and has all of the accommodations that one would want and expect to take care of a large family. The location offers wonderful views and good privacy to lounge around the pool and the outdoor terraces. Mrs Kiki was just wonderful with her warm hospitality, service and her wonderful breakfasts. Our only regret is that we did not have her cook some additional dinners for us. I would strongly recommend that you take her up on her offer to cook you some traditional Greek meals as you will have a tough time finding such food in the local tavernas. We hope that when we get back to Greece hopefully in the near future, we will stay again at Villa Kastro. Thank you to Mrs Kiki and Jimmy for making our stay a wonderful one!!!

In augustus 2018 een week met ons gezin in deze prachtige villa mogen verblijven. Kiki, de gastvrouw die naast de villa woont, heeft ervoor gezorgd dat wij een fantastische week hebben gehad! We voelden ons erg welkom. Ze maakte dagelijks de hele villa schoon, en ze zorgde elke morgen voor een fantastisch, uitgebreid ontbijt. Zoiets hebben we nog nooit ergens meegemaakt! Ze verwende ons met de lekkerste Griekse gerechten welke ze allemaal vers bereidde! Het was zoveel dat we er de hele dag van konden eten. We gaan haar kookkunsten missen! De villa is erg luxe, ideaal voor gezinnen. Het terras met zwembad is fantastisch! Ontzettend mooi en wat een uitzicht! Je blijft er naar kijken, overdag én 's avonds. Je hebt veel privacy, maar je zit maar een paar minuten rijden van de winkels, restaurantjes en het strand vandaan, perfect dus! Jimmy heeft ons ook goed geholpen, als je vragen hebt, is hij er gelijk voor je. Zoek je luxe, gastvrijheid, een groot zwembad, en een lieve gastvrouw die elke dag heerlijk voor je kookt wat je zelf kunt kiezen, boek dan Villa Kastro voor een onvergetelijke ervaring! Wij hopen in de toekomst nog eens terug te keren.

We stayed at Villa Kastro for 8 nights in July and we can honestly say it was one of the best holidays we have had . We were met by Jimmy on arrival who manages the property who showed us around . I could spend a long time talking about the specifics of the villa and how amazing and well appointed it is but just take my word for it . You won’t be disappointed with the quality of the fittings and the surrounding pool area and then there’s the amazing view . What makes the place extra special is “Kiki” who provides a cooked breakfast everyday and cleans the villa every day . The breakfast is wonderful and large , comprising of local cooked breakfast dishes along with fruit , cereal and freshly squeezed juices and homemade cake !!! On arrival “Kiki” also made us lunch which was all homemade and delicious. Our friends arrived the next day and Kiki made lunch for them too , this was all included !! Jimmy makes himself available if you need him and is very helpful with anything you require . On to Lefkas , the villa is a short walk to the local town Nikiana, which has a collection of decent bars and restaurants around a small harbour . The bigger resort of Nidri is a few miles away which is busier and more touristy but you can find some nice restaurants . ( try ergon ) The harbour is much bigger and you can rent boats to explore the islands . The best place was Lefkada which has a nice town square and has historic churches and features We couldn’t thank Jimmy and Kiki enough for all they did and we will be back next year
