Villa Penio, Lefkada, Greece
This property is part of our exclusive portfolio. Find out more here.
The sleek cubist design of Penio makes the very most of its stunning panoramic position on the south coast of Lefkada. Walls of floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors flood the interiors with light and views and create an effortless indoor-outdoor experience. This synergy between the house and its surrounding terraces is mirrored by that of the pool and the sea, which are linked not only by the infinity effect of the former, but also by an umbilical pathway connecting the two.
Inside: the main entrance takes one into a hallway off which one may access all areas of the villa. To the left are the sleeping quarters, while to the right, past a guest bathroom, a few steps lead down into the large, bright and extremely panoramic open-plan living area and kitchen-diner. Floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors on three sides ensure not only that the superb sea views are omnipresent, but also that the large pool terrace and the al fresco dining and barbecue zone can be accessed with complete ease.
The kitchen is top-notch, both in terms of its facilities (think gas and induction hobs, a double-size fridge, etc.) and its position, which allow cooks to take inspiration from the sea views. The double height ceiling of the living area is traversed by a floating gallery, accessed via a flight of stairs near the entrance and leading to a pair of incredibly panoramic roof terraces.
Heading back past the main entrance, a few stairs lead down to the main sleeping quarters, comprising two double-twins with en-suite shower rooms and the main double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub. All three have sea views and access to the main pool terrace.
Accommodation is completed by an independent suite accessed once more via a few steps from the entrance hall. Here there is a cosy living area, a bedroom with small kitchenette, an en-suite shower room, garden views and access to a private terrace.
Outside: Penio is surrounded on three sides by sea-facing terraces, which offer stunning views across the Ionian waters to Lefkada's neighbouring islands (Ithaca, Cephalonia and the tiny island of Oxia, recently purchased by the Emir of Qatar) and the Greek mainland.
Running along the front of the house, and accessed from the open-plan living area and kitchen-diner and three of the bedrooms, is the main terrace, featuring an infinity pool of two halves, bisected by a walkway that connects with the steps down to the transparent sea below. To one side of the house, just outside the kitchen-diner, is a shaded al fresco dining and barbecue area, while to the other, just round the corner from the shaded section of the pool area, is yet more sea-view terracing and an outdoor shower.
The independent suite also has its own patio area to the side and rear of the house. Last, but certainly not least, are the two roof-top terraces, accessed via the floating gallery above the living area. Here the views just get better and there couldn't be a more dreamy spot for an evening aperitif or a few sun salutations at dawn!
