Beautiful house in beautiful place - everything we could want in the house and garden and the photos had not exaggerated anything - in fact the opposite. Dessimi bay wonderful for swimming and boats to rent from right next door made it easy to explore nearby islands and beaches. We had an amazing holiday.

“Another great stay at the Villa Dolce Dessimi”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This is was our second stay at the Villa Dolce Dessimi. The villa and the surrounding area were just as we remembers it. The villa itself is clean, comfortable and has all the amenities one needs for a wonderful summer holiday. The caretaker is available 24/7 and is extremely helpful in all matters. The view from the front garden is fabulous as is having the water a few steps from the door. This year our holiday was a week later than the previous year and therefore the beach area was more crowded, which was to be expected as the school holidays were in already in session.
We can fully recommend this property for families or a group of friends looking for a greek holiday in a home away from home!

“Outstanding experience, hospitality excellence! A gem of a find!”

Delightful, quiet and charming! Spacious master bedroom. Extremely tidy. Ample living area that opens up to a large private garden and the beach. Expansive dining area. Fully equipped open-plan kitchen with all necessary cookware and appliances. Wide balconies for unfettered views of the sea, waking up all senses. A very kind and friendly property manager. The only shortcoming was the non-working internet/wi-fi throughout the house. Couldn't fix the problem. The tavern next to the house was serving very good and tasty food, not expensive. Nearby there is a boat rental. Good for a quiet gateway as there is no night life in the vicinity.
We highly recommend it for your stay! We are definitely going back next summer.

“Stunning Greek island escape”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We absolutely loved our time at Dolce Villa Dessimi. After 5 weeks of travelling through Europe , arriving at this stunning beachside home was just what we needed. The home is spacious and modern and located in a beautiful part of Lefkada which is both private yet close to shops, restaurants and cafés.
The house contains all the modern facilities you could ask for on a holiday. Loved the professional high powered hair dryers in every bathroom!! Much care has been taken with every aspect of this house - the owners have thought of everything to make your time here a wonderful experience right down to the instruction for the laundry facilities provided in 5 languages and the detailed day trip recommendations in a guest folder.
Waking up to the sun shining over the water lapping - almost at the door step - was simply amazing. As was walking along the beach in front of the house in the evening, or sipping a drink while relaxing at the outdoor table listening to the sounds of the water at night.
We will definitely be returning to Dolce Villa Dessimi next year.

“Simply Breathtaking, absolute stunning location and amazing villa.”
Reviewed September 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Words simply cannot describe how amazing this villa is. It was everything we expected and much much more.
The location is superb only a short 5 minute drive to the town if you want to stock up on supplies or go for dinner/stroll at night, very lively atmosphere.
We loved this villa so much we didn't want to leave, they have thought of everything from a welcoming basket to the gorgeous hair and body products in the bathrooms!
There is airconditioning in all rooms to keep you cool at night but with the spectacular location like Dessimi Bay, you will spend a lot of time enjoying the view and the beach like we did. Rooms are very comfortable and the kitchen family room very spacious with all the latest technologies and Wifi which was a bonus.
It was very safe area and our kids would play and swim till the sun came down.
Loved waking up to the calm sounds of the ocean, we would have breakfast outside in the private grounds, then off for a swim in the clear water, (need some reef shoes though) or hire a boat just outside the villa. There is also some great places to eat just a few minutes away along the bay and great "freddo espresso too".
We took some of the recommendations that they had in the guest folder and enjoyed a great day trip and some great local restaurants.
We felt like we were staying in a 5 star hotel, and we would stay here again on our next Greek holiday, absolutely worth every Euro!

“Could have not asked for a better location in all of lefkada island!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

You definitely know how your holiday is going to be from the very first hours. In this case when we arrived in the villa and were handed over the keys I got really sad! The reason is that we had only booked for a week and from the first minute I knew that I did not want to leave this amazing place at all!!
All is spotless and organised in such a way that you do not have to worry about anything during your staying. The attention to the details (for instance wood ready on BBQ area) makes you think that the owners really have been around a lot and have the experience that is needed to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxed as possible.
The most amazing feature is the sea, you are actually sleeping less than ten meters away from it, you can enjoy it before closing your eyes in the evening and when you open them in the morning from any of the three bedrooms in the house.
The beach is lovely and the sea very clean. Amenities nearby such as boat rental, a small canteen and a nice fish rental could keep you within the area a d forget about using the car for the all duration of your staying.
I strongly recommend this place if you are looking for a unforgettable location and luxury accommodation. The only reason I was tempted not to write a review is the risk that I will find the place fully booked next year :)

“If you like being close to the water this is the place!”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This property is exactly as advertised in all respects. The entire rental experience is expertly managed and everything in and around the house is in excellent condition. We have rental numerous vacation homes and this was by far the best rental "customer service" we have received.
The location of Dolce Villa Dessimi is perfect for those who like to be near the water. The house is located on the beach of Dessimi Bay.
The front garden of the house is separated from the beach/water with a knee high stone wall. This gives you added privacy from the people who are using the public beach in front of the house.
To get to the Dolce Villa Dessimi you definitely need to have a car.
The town of Nydri is about a 10 minute drive and there you can get everything you need (and more) for your stay. There are plenty of tavernas in the area and there is a boat rental very close to the house should you wish to explore some of the secluded beaches in the area.
All in all a perfect place for a Greek getaway!
