Outdoors

Our houses are nestled on the hillside among olive trees, overlooking a pine forest, with the vista of Aphales bay spread below. As a summer holiday destination Levendi's provides all choices of seaside activities, with the added benefit of being on a traditional and geographically spectacular island. Most guests don't move far from the pool's edge during the day. However, the alternative of an early morning dip in a  quite exquisite swimming cove is an easy one; and mornings spent at the Pavilion for holistic therapeutic and/or aromatherapy massage are certain to rejuvenate.

If more wide-ranging activities are your choice you are able to charter a 12m yacht to explore nearby deserted islands, hire a dingy to take you around the island's shores to find one of our many otherwise inaccessible beaches, for swimming, snorkeling and picnic hamper lunches, or take a day cruise which can include a fully prepared beach BBQ meal.

Your choices for dining and foods are wide. If you don't want to prepare food whilst on holidays, all the villages have restaurants and tavernas. Or, you may prefer to buy from the shops and greengrocer's to prepare your own meals 'at home.' Alternatively, we invite you to share the produce of our organic gardens to cook up sumptuous feasts in our outdoor kitchen, and dine under the stars.
  
Peaceful and quieter days of spring and autumn are filled with wildflowers and gentle sunlight-ideal for walking our mountain paths, enjoying fresh air tainted with the aroma of naturally  growing herbs, and seeing views from high mountain villages into valleys, with the surrounding islands laid out at your feet.  For those artistically inclined guests, there is no shortage of subject matter during these seasons; and connoisseurs of olive oil will enjoy the process of the harvest. Winter is the time to hide away beside a snug wood heater, with the bay taking out its moods on the cliffs opposite, giving inspiration for your creative expressions.
