Villa Yalenia was originally built by the family’s grandfather and has been renovated with loving care in his memory. The design was accomplished with the utmost comfort and quality in mind and then decorated with the greatest care. The owners’ pride and love for their grandfather is evident in every corner. All interior wooden surfaces are handmade of solid oak. The downstairs’ floors are made of aged marble from Crete. The wooden panelled ceiling is in keeping with the traditional Lefkadian ceilings of the island and is a trademark of the local architectural style. The wooden staircase is the masterpiece of the house having been designed to give the feeling of one level flowing into the other and giving the illusion of a single open space. All bathrooms are designed exclusively in Italian style and the floors and walls are lined with Italian tiles or marble. The showers are all walk-in and protected with safety glass. In the kitchen, the cabinets are made of oak and the worktop is solid granite. On the upper floor, the wooden terrace and pergola are made of cherry wood and shaded with a wicker mesh. The house is partially lined with stone and painted using natural pastel colours which is characteristic of the houses in the old town of Lefkada. The terraces are paved in stone and the small covered seating area in the garden has natural stone seating.
