Positioned on the hillside just above the popular seaside village of Nidri with outstanding sea views as far as the eye can see; Villa Rachi is located in a truly magnificent spot. The surrounding countryside is picture postcard picturesque, scattered with ancient olive groves, citrus orchards and wild herbs. Amongst the many attributes of this fine villa are four good sized en-suite bedrooms and a comfortable and spacious open plan living room from where patio doors lead out to the terrace, a wonderful vantage point to enjoy the views or embroil yourself in your holiday read. The attractive terraces and inviting swimming pool are positioned in a lovely sunny spot so you can enjoy the sunshine all day long – and those amazing views!.
The terrace features a “state of the art” outdoor kitchen/bbq with drinks fridge, sink and ample work space and storage to take the slog out of cooking al fresco and a beautiful dining area with glorious panoramic coastal views is beautifully shaded. In addition there is a comfortable outdoor sitting area (with adjustable tented cover for shade) including sunbeds giving a very stylish feel to this super house.
The quintessential Greek seaside village and harbour of Nidri can be easily reached on foot but it is a steep hill climb back up to Villa Rachi. Nidri offers a small sandy beach and an extensive selection of local tavernas,fish restaurants as well as shops and café bars. Nidri really is a delightful holiday village, much frequented by yachts, the waterfront always full of fishing boats, small ferries and the typical Greek kaiki. From here you can hop on a boat trip to the outlying islands, it will come as no surprise that many a fun day excursion can be booked at the Nidri harbour front.
Usual day is Sundays.

Aktion National Airport – Preveza (PVK)
Located on the east coast of the gorgeously diverse island of Lefkas, and not that far from Preveza international airport which services this stunning island, the delightful seaside village of Nidri is a family friendly village with an excellent variety of amenities and activities, including a fabulous choice of low key watersports to cater for all the family.
From Nidri port you can take boat trips to the many outlying islands, from Meganissi (now becoming a holiday destination in its’ own right) to tiny jewels of islets that are uninhabited, and also to a selection of Lefkas’s famous white sandy beaches, many of which can only be reached by boat.
Evenings here find you sauntering past pretty little Greek fishing cottages on friendly and colourful bougainvillea clad streets, joining the locals for a game of cards or backgammon, shopping for souvenirs in the many shops or dining out in one of the many charming restaurants.
Villa Rachi was very difficult to find as the sat-nav could only get you quite close and no signage anywhere. The villa is quite tired and in need of updating in places, however the view is amazing. As our weather was not good for most of the week an updated tv with Bluetooth or a speaker would help with modern day subscriptions via your phone. The BBQ area was clean but just a wire fish/ meat holder and a brick to lean it against was all we had and a sink with just cold water and a fridge ( not very state of the art).
But with good weather it would be more forgiving

The views are amazing . The villa is very spacious and the pool and terrace are great. The equipment and facilities were adequate but could be better. Very nice restaurant within 10 mins walk. Nidri town and harbour a bit of a long walk bearing in mind the hills but only 5 mins in the car.

Great villa in stunning location with incredible views yet an easy drop down to Nidri. Great wildlife is a bonus too. Super pool area with large fridge and dining area. We loved our two weeks here. The rep and cleaners were great too.

The villa is stunning. Fantastic facilities and super clean. Beautiful view from the outdoor area. Close by to Nydri town, lots of restaurants and supermarkets.

A great villa. Fabulous views over Nidri and to the islands beyond. We walked into town on the first night but it was just that bit too far and hilly, so taxied from then on - easy to arrange. The villa was otherwise well located, easy to get around the island. Very clean, and probably the best equipped villa we have had.

This spotless and well appointed villa was in a high location with fabulous views over trees to the town and sea beyond. The access road was steep in parts as was mentioned. We chose to take the vehicle to Nidri rather than walk. The pool was spotless and a couple of little queries were resolved very quickly, pool light, washing machine power. Laundry and maid service very efficient. It was perfect for three generations, a family of six.

Villa Rachi is a lovely villa with a commanding view over Nydri down to the sea and beyond to the islands and the mainland. Dreamy. We loved the addition of the barbeque area (without which it would have been cramped) and the outdoor fridge is pure genius! The villa inside is impressive and well appointed on the face of it and aircon keeps you cool. There are no curtains (other than net curtains) In the two downstairs bedrooms and the master bedroom has no curtains either on one of its many windows. Although this can largely be overcome by hanging up bed blankets it is a big negative at this (or indeed any) price point, but one that the owner could easily rectify and hopefully they will now. No champagne glasses (we bought and left two) despite Greece making a rather nice fizzy (Amalia Rosé). No other negatives! Privacy is high on my list and this really ticks the box. The villa was quiet too (thanks Trish for getting the pool pumps switched off at night so we could enjoy the pool barbeque area in peace). A really lovely villa all in all. The more you get to know Nydri the better it is. De Blanck wine & champagne bar sorted us out with some nice Greek wines which were proving elusive at the smaller supermarkets. The best beaches and lovely restaurants are at the North end of Nydri up from Hotel Bel Air in my view and not round the Port Really beautiful and you sit on the water's edge. Finally an afternoon trip to Meganissi (Spilia) on the Meganissi II boat is a must. The views on the crossing are spectacular and a drink up in Spartochori high above Spilia Bay provides some of the best views anywhere in the world. At EUR 1.90 each way (pay on the boat) it is wallet friendly too. Thanks Trish for the help and recommendations. Fabulous holiday. Will B (Family of 4. July 2019)

This villa has a fantastic view towards the coast and the main harbour can be easily reached by car. car is essential for this villa as the closest supermarket is around 2 km away. Good sized bedrooms and the villa is well equipped.

I have just returned from Villa Rachi in Nidri, Lefkas. My family has been on numerous villa holidays and this villa was the best one so far. The outside space with the BBQ area is amazing with fabulous views over Nidri and the islands. I would certainly have no doubt recommending both the villa and Solmar Villas. Trish, the Solmar Villa rep on the island was brilliant. She responded immediately to any questions I had, both before we arrived and during our stay. I will definitely use Solmar Villas again and would definitely return to Villa Rachi. Thank you to all the team.

Everything you would want and expect from a villa with a poolside view which is picture postcard perfect.
Tue 13 Nov 2018
We have enjoyed many bookings in the past and we will definitely book again will Solmar. This villa had everything and was the best we've ever stayed in.

Fabulous villa with amazing views, quiet and secluded location but only a few minutes drive into the centre of Nydri which has everything you need - watersports, shops, ample excellent restaurants, beaches and harbour offering a good range of boat trips and overall providing an excellent base to explore the island of Lefkas. Every single room is spacious and air-conditioned and the outside decking area with large pool offers an incredibly scenic and private outlook. Extremely well equipped, excellent maid/cleaning service, immaculately clean - we could not fault a thing. We loved this villa and would hope to return next year.

Villa Rachi has the most stunning views over Nidri, you never get used to the view! Having a pool was a real luxury too, it occupied the children for the whole time we were there. The villa was spotlessly clean and the air conditioning essential. You need a car when staying here.

The views from the villa were stunning and the facilities excellent. The resort had everything we needed for a great holiday.

The villa has a stunning view of the whole island its beautiful. Everything was perfect it was immaculate everywhere and plenty of plates and utensils. The bedrooms were gorgeous as was the whole villa. Lefkas is by far the best island we have ever been to everyone was so friendly. We loved Nidri town where we dined each night it has everything you need. We had such a fabulous time. Thanks Solmar.
