Villa Veneziano: A Luxurious Venetian Retreat Overlooking the Ionian Sea

Welcome to Villa Veneziano, a luxury retreat nestled on a hillside overlooking the stunning Ionian Sea. This magnificent villa was built in 2009 by Russian shipbroker Sergei Kauzov in memory of his wife, Christina Onassis. The villa is a testament to their love and embodies their passion for beauty, luxury, and design.

The villa’s unique Venetian architecture is infused with elements of Byzantine design, creating a beautiful and elegant space that is both luxurious and functional. The villa comprises five exquisite suites, each decorated with exceptional style and attention to detail. With the capacity to accommodate up to 12 people, this is the perfect place for large groups of friends or families to relax and unwind in style.

As you step inside, you will be greeted by a spacious, inviting living area adorned with unique artwork and lighting. The dining room and kitchen are equally impressive, with ample cooking, dining, and entertaining space. The villa’s patio resembles a beautiful monastery full of vibrant flowers and lush greenery where guests can unwind and enjoy a drink.

Large windows and an archway open onto the exterior spaces, offering panoramic views of the Ionian Sea and surrounding islands. The garden, with its BBQ area and beautiful pool house, is the perfect place to spend long summer days, while the shaded outdoor sitting areas offer a peaceful retreat from the sun.

The jewel in the crown of Villa Veneziano is undoubtedly the magnificent pavilion with its private infinity pool and Jacuzzi. Here, you can relax and rejuvenate while taking in the breathtaking views of the sea and surrounding islands.

WOW! We are visiting Greece, from Texas, and the great reviews is what lead to us stay at Villa Veneziano, Lefkas. We were not disappointed as this is a fantastic place and a super value. The narrow road to/from is very narrow so be cautious but it’s worth the drive. Simply wonderful - 5+ stars. Ria, the innkeeper, and her precious yorkie, are fantastic as well. Kelly and Robert.
