Villa Leonidas is a majestic newly built villa enjoying an elevated position overlooking Kalami Bay. It is a short walk from the coastal village of Kalami and the nearby beaches of Yialiskari and Agni Bay. Kalami is renowned for its connections with the Durrell family. Their former home, The White House, is now a popular restaurant where the renowned Michelin star chef, Lefteris Lazarou, is setting the menu. Lazarou, the country's most celebrated chef, is the first to receive a Michelin star.
The villa, only in its second season, already has a following amongst foodies. Throughout July and August another well known Greek chef, Mirsini Lampraki, is in residence, creating fabulous menus of authentic Greek dishes but with an original twist. Chefs can be available at other times of the year on request.
The villa's interiors are finished to an exceptionally high standard, with generous proportions and all the amenities and facilities you would expect, and could wish for. Built over three floors to enjoy the best of the sea view it has been designed with a panoramic glass elevator on the eastern face of the villa, providing direct access from the bedrooms to the pool terrace. The villa is designed to have full accessibility for wheelchair users.
