Levendi`s is a luxury, family-friendly and romantic holiday destination where quality and hospitality are the abiding hallmarks. With a price that includes breakfasts, car hire and airport transfers (as well as numerous other things), all your needs are catered for! Fusing luxury retreat by the sea, rustic organic farm holiday with tranquil escape or exploratory walking/trekking adventures, the Estate offers a wide variety of services and activities. Set in a wooded valley with unhindered views to the bay below, this seven-acre organic olive farm is considered by its guests to be their Greek island country home by the sea. A flagged pathway meanders down the hillside, linking each house with the breakfast shop-cum-organic pantry, an outdoor cooking and dining area with large refectory table, a salt-water infinity pool and summer house overlooking treetops to the bay below & forest pathways leading to hammocks slung between trees. Yet deeper in the forest are a holistic massage pavilion, outdoor cinema, al-fresco lounge and yoga platform. A separate farm area, vegetable gardens and fruit trees provide Chef’s organic ingredients.
Levendis Estate rests in a valley with its back to a mountain, and overlooking a wide bay. Small traditional seaside villages are within 3 km. Ithaca is a mountainous, wooded island which has escaped mass tourism. Ithaca combines its ancient history, religious tradition, culture and its seafaring and agricultural way of life - unchanged for generations - with a geographic beauty that captures the most widely travelled visitor. With its many mountain pathways linking historical villages and shores dotted with small white jewelled beaches, it offers a destination which you will find difficult to leave and compelled to return to. The village of Stavros is 2 km from Levendi's and is the central village of northern Ithaca. About 1 kilometre north of Stavros is Pelicata; a small Bronze Age settlement. Kioni and Frikes on the northeast coast are both typical unspoilt Ionian villages with many small tavernas along their sea fronts.

Each house has two bedrooms, each with its own vine-covered veranda terrace. There is a sofa-bed in each sitting room which can accommodate a fifth person if required. Kitchens are fully equipped for those preferring self-catering. Seasonal comfort is ensured with fires burning wood grown on the Estate and passive cooling techniques using design to capture sea breezes, cool stone flagged floors and tree shade. Doors & windows are screened. Our aim is that you should need to bring only a few casual clothes on holiday. Full baby packs & child care are provided. There is a large library, beach equipment, games, and a range of homeopathic body care products are made using herbs grown on the Estate.
The grounds of Levendis Estate have been designed to offer privacy to each guest within gardened terraces surrounding each house, together with the provision of communal areas for those wanting to share the company of friends or other guests on the Estate. Children are within a secure environment, yet have acres of space to explore and roam with others. During the mornings they may want to help with taking care of our animals, and are also welcome to breakfast at the coffee shop, giving parents a quiet start to their day. Our Holistic Pavilion offers therapeutic massage treatments, pilates and yoga sessions; and the bicycle rack offers the opportunity for everyone in the family to enjoy a full day of cycling.

Early season holidays have an emphasis on natural health through pilates, yoga, cycling, walking, organic foods and cooking classes.
