The front door of Villa Loukia leads into a light and airy open-plan living area that was extended at the end of 2015. The room is now dominated by a large 'picture window', which pulls the wonderful view across the bay of Avlaki and onwards to Albania, into the room. During winter 2017 we then re-tiled the whole of the downstairs, the downstairs cloak-room and refurbished the downstairs bedroom and en-suite. We are now well and truly finished!!
The sitting room has two large sofas, a feature fire place and an armchair. There is a Bose Music System complete with i-Pod/i-Phone docking system, LCD TV with Greek satellite connection including some international channels, DVD player and DVD library. There is a well stocked games cupboard too. Wi-Fi is also available free of charge. As with all rooms in the house, there are European and UK 3-pin sockets complete with USB sockets.
The indoor dining area has a large reclaimed teak table next to the new feature 'glass wall' that makes the most of the stunning view to Albania. Above the table is a ceiling fan and doors onto the veranda leading to the pool.
There is a fabulous guest washroom leading off the living room, complete with w.c., basin, washing machine, ironing board, iron etc.
A further set of French windows lead off the kitchen onto the large terrace running along the front of the house. The Orange Bedroom also leads off the living room and stairs lead to the Blue Bedroom and Master Bedroom.
The kitchen was completely remodeled for 2018. All new appliances have been fitted; multi-function oven, hob, microwave/grill, dishwasher and a huge American Style fridge complete with filtered water and automatic ice. The kitchen is well equipped, right down to the Sebatier knives. There is also ample work space on the new granite worktop. It really is a lovely space to cook in and will be much appreciated by those of you who enjoy being 'Chef' on holiday.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The master suite was upgraded during winter 2015 and is now a very luxurious, large room with an equally lovely en-suite bathroom complete with bath tub, separate shower, basin on marble stand and heated mirror. The master bed is super king size and there is a sofa/single bed in this room too for small children. This room has its own Bose music system which you can run using Bluetooth from your own playlists on your mobile phone. The second twin bedroom and en-suite bathroom was then upgraded in 2016 to the same standard as the master. Downstairs is the third twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom which has now been upgraded to match the other two, all ready for the 2018 season. This room has its own charm and views over the garden and sea beyond, and with easy access to the pool area.
Although Villa Loukia is a 3 bedroom house sleeping 6 we can also accommodate infants in a travel cot, young children in the spare single bed in the master bedroom and we have a double sofa bed in the living room for an extra adult couple.
Many guests comment on our attention to detail and the fact that Villa Loukia does feel like a home. It has 'soul' and everything you need; two things so often missing in holiday rentals.
The owners have been so clever with all they have done. The layout is just ideal - the barbecue area was popular with everyone.! The sun loungers are incredibly comfy and the pool was blissfully large and was always full of people. Being able to walk to and from Kassiopi was SUCH a boon (and so rare - ideal for teenagers). Everything the owners said about the villa was true, and the info in there was just so helpful re tavernas etc. Beforehand we had some correspondence about car hire and so on, and Lucy was fantastically efficient about responding to every query with the utmost speed. There is masses of space in the house, meaning that everybody can find a peaceful spot. The kitchen is brilliantly equipped, and the eating area works really well. If anything, the villa was even more wonderful than it looked on the website. We recommend the villa wholeheartedly, although rather reluctantly as we are nervous about too many people discovering how special it is!. We all absolutely LOVED it.Read more from the Loukia Guestbook
