Have just had another wonderful week staying in Pelican House. It was even better than I remember. Excellent welcome pack- especially as we arrived very late due to flight delays. A little bit of paradise!! The weather was perfect allowing us to make use of the outdoor dining area and even barbequed a couple of times. The perfect place to relax unwind and be amazed at the stunning views.
Thank you Verity!!
If you're looking for a chilled out, relaxing holiday in the most perfect setting in the most perfect villa look no further.
Yes, the drive is a little bit hairy the first time up to the villa, but by the second/third trip up you'll be whizzing around like a local. And, let's face it, you won't get views like this without being high up!
Everything was perfect from the booking experience through to leaving the villa. We were met by the lovely Sue who is extremely friendly and on hand to offer advice, recommendations etc. The villa is perfect with everything you could possibly need (and more!), we spent our days chilling by the pool and continually repeating 'wow, just look at that view!'. Loads to do in the area - recommend Nydri waterfalls (although more of a trickle than waterfall this time of year, but definitely worth a visit for a refreshing dip!), MS Christina boat trip (tip - get there early to ensure you're seated together if going as a family), Porto Katsiki beach (bit of a drive but worth it) plus Sivota and Vassiliki nearby. Some great restaurants too... Pinewood in Nydri (best calamari I've ever had), Dimitris (5 min drive from villa - fantastic value for money) and for a great dining experience you have got to go to Rachi for sunset, absolutely stunning.
I can't recommend this villa highly enough, my only regret is that we booked one week instead of two but I'm sure we'll be back! Well done Verity, you have a stunning villa that you should be very proud of, the hard work and passion you have put into it is evident.
Oh, and how could I forget 'Pug' (after Captain Pugwash) the cat we befriended - a friendly little fella who greeted us with a miaow or two every morning.
This is my second time to visit Pelican's House and from the moment we arrived we couldn't help but to relax and unwind. It really is the most peaceful setting with stunning views. The house is eager to facilitate a social environment but equally allows you to achieve a sense of space, even with five other guests staying. I can't wait to go back for more fun with a bunch of friends around that pool!
Pelican House is an ideal destination for a family or group of friends to enjoy a relaxing holiday. The house is furnished to a high standard and extremely comfortable. The outdoor living space is of an equally high standard with a stunning infinity swimming pool overlooking the hills and the sea.
I look forward to visiting this special place again.
Pelican's house is the perfect getaway!
The villa itself is as spacious indoors as it is outdoors. It is decorated with great taste and every corner of the house is designed to fully utilise the amazing greek climate.
Its location could not be more tranquil whilst you are only a 5 minute drive from a bustling nightlife.
Nothing beats an early morning swim in the pool with million dollar views... highly recommended!
We have just spent a wonderful relaxing week at Pelican's House where the views and the pool instantly calm you as you struggle to comprehend how the photos can actually be real and that you are really there!
The gorgeous Sue is there to welcome you and all you have to do is open up the bottle of wine and prepare a Greek salad with fresh fruits from the foods already there for you.
Visit any one of the amazing bays and beaches and take in a taverna or two.The island is easy to navigate in a car and the blue water against the green olive groves and pine trees make it very special.You will be hard pushed to find anywhere so private and relaxing.
Thanks Verity we will definitely book again.
We had a fantastic week at Pelican House and really struggled to leave the place behind. It was so peaceful up in the mountains, and this beautiful villa really has the most awesome views. The pool is great and was kept clean for us all week. The villa is so well equipped, if you chose to stay put for the week, its the perfect retreat and feels very loved. We had a fantastic welcome from the host who gave us lots of tips for the week. We visited some of the most beautiful beaches we had ever been to, particularly Porto Katsiki. We would recommend Pelican House and Lefkada to anybody.
