Villa Senecio is situated on a mountain in Northeastern Lefkas , among many olive trees and offers a spectacular view of the sea. The area is called “Kontres” (from the word kontri which in local dialect means big rock).

It is built with natural materials such as stone, wood and a traditional roof so it blends in beautifully with the natural environment.
It will offer you the Lefkadian hospitality and the warmth of a simple house but at the same time all the modern facilities of a mansion.
The name Senecio comes from a plant with yellow flowers which blooms at the end of winter. This plant can be found all over the property.
Villa Senecio is a holiday home built on three levels of 150 sqm. As you walk through the stone-built entrance you will be fascinated. This leads you to the main entrance of the house. On the ground floor there is a living – room, a kitchen and a bathroom. The floor is a marble chess style pattern. The living room area has an old Coronelli map. The earthy coloured Sofas and curtains blend in beautifully with the wood. There are many antiques and cherished family belongings such as old sewing machines, paintings and prints which give a sense of warmth and nostalgia to the house. The lamps and the hand-made curtains give you a feeling of luxury. The kitchen and the living room are separated from the hall. In the kitchen you will find a great Bavarian dining table and a marble sink which gives the kitchen a country style.
A marble staircase leads you to the first floor. Here you will find 2 of the 3 bedrooms, the master bedroom with its two marble balconies and its own bathroom, and a smaller bedroom with its own bathroom that has a view of the pool. The bedrooms are painted in soft colors and in combination with the antique furniture ,laced curtains and which sheets the rooms give you a sense of tranquility. By following the wooden staircase you will reach the attic, with its exposed wooden roof made of local cypress trees ,where the third bedroom and its own bathroom can be found. The stone walls offer a naturally cool environment.
There are many spots in the outdoor area surrounding the house where you can enjoy the spectacular view.
There is a splendid Mediterranean garden , built at different levels ,with local aromatic trees and plants. The best spot is the traditional kiosk with a hand-made dining table .

Όλα ήταν εξαιρετικά για να περάσουμε υπέροχες διακοπές εγώ κ η οικογένεια μου !November 2018

This is a lovely villa with one of the best views I have ever seen. The villa is great for families - though care should be taken with the pool as it is quite deep and has no safety fence - be aware for very young children. We visited in April and were unlucky with the weather but it would be perfect in the warmer months - nice and cool. The host Vangelis and the agents were brilliant - really helpful and quick to respond to requests.April 2019

“Fur coat but no nickers”!
All the photos on the various platforms made this villa “appear” as though it would be our best yet. I will be honest, I will be frank! Sadly, it fell far short of the mark. Although the building, gardens and pool area could have been excellent, our overriding first impression was that it was shabby, quite tatty. Fixtures and fittings were in need of some tic, for example some “outdoor” electrical wiring was exposed, the pool sealant was coming off, and in some rooms the bottom of door frames were starting to show signs of rot. In the kitchen, whilst there were two coffee machines, there was no toaster and no small pans. For a villa of this cost, the kitchen was poorly equipped. WiFi. The WiFi had excellent coverage, it just did not connect to the internet - in spite of being re-booted, twice. Fortunately everyone in the group had good roaming data or could tether devices. As for the overheating water system...... Had action not been taken during the night by one of the guests, that could have seen a very different outcome! Again, an indication of questionable maintenance! But we did enjoy our stay in Lefkada!June 2022
