The ground floor is separated from the 1st floor and is occupied by a bookshop which also has its own private entrance and exit door to the garden/yard. The yard is typically shared with the bookshop's staff mostly during working days/hours (9am to 5pm), so if you are a bibliophile you may have a nice book- conversation with them. Also on some occasions you might be lucky to see an evening event in the garden.
Both floors have their own privacy and independence. Additionally, the 1st floor (rental home) has a soundproofed floor so it's not possible to hear any sounds or noises coming from the bookshop or vice-versa. You will both be able to enjoy your quiet or loud moments :) Just keep in mind that from 14:00 pm to 17:00 p.m. and from 22:00 pm to 08:00 am it's the siesta time (quiet hours) in Lefkada.

The house is located in a very central spot which is quiet and at the same time close to the action of Lefkada town. In 1 minute walking distance you can be in a restaurant, bakery, mini market, kiosk, shop and everything else you can imagine. You can walk through the historical center, the pedestrian street and all the small alleys with ease. The town is also close to some of the famous beaches such as Ai Giannis, Gyra, Kastro. For the reason that the town is settled in a flat area you can easily walk or cycle towards those beaches.
Getting around / Parking options / Coordinates
There are two free of charge parking areas in 80 meters distance from the house. The parking area is on a central location, it's safe and very close to the house. It is not possible to park your car on the house street because the streets in the old town of Lefkada are pedestrian streets. On the other hand, residents of the old town are allowed to bring their car outside the house for a limited time only. So, anytime you like you can drive the car through the alley (pedestrian street) to unload your shopping bugs/luggages. Once you have taken out all of your things you should drive the car back to the specified municipality parking area.

If you are looking for an authentic experience of Lefkadian hospitality, then stay here. The house exudes the air of a traditional mansion of another era, everything is up to the last detail from the little touches in the decoration and the color painted walls, to the elegant furniture and the warm lighting. The house was spotlessly clean, equipped with everything needed, it was perfectly peaceful and quiet and at the same time located in the center of the city. The highlight of my stay, however, I think it was the afternoon reading in the most beautiful little courtyard in the world! Value for money!
Perfect location, cozy feel to the house with a quiet courtyard yet in the heart of all of the action. Safe and free parking nearby. Andreas was readily available to answer our questions. We were glad that we chose Andreas' home for our two week stay in Lefkada and would highly recommend!
