The Ionian Islands region
Situated at the west side of Greece, Lefkada is one of the Ionian islands, which is loved for its diversities. From shallow beaches with green water to breathtaking golden sand ones with turqoise water colors. From busy villages by the sea fully developed by tourism, to traditional settlements up on the mountains untouched by crowds. The size of the island is such that does not tire the visitor but at the same time it offers plenty of choices for activities. From trying a full scale of watersports or enjoying nightlife for the more adventurous, to having a delicious traditional meal at the local tavernas, visiting local churches or settlements of historical interest, taking a boat excursion at the lovely islands nearby, wander around nature full of greenery or have a good night's sleep for those looking for a relaxing holiday. Lefkada is Greece's only island that can be accessed via a floating bridge, hence the traveller does not have to worry about booking ferry tickets or depending on wheather in order to visit.
All the above make Lefkada an ideal holiday destination for families and the experienced travellers alike.
Breathtaking and world-famous beaches, sandy, long, with turquoise waters are close by (Egremni within 2 kms, Gialos within 3 kms, Porto Katsiki within 8 kms). Porto Katsiki beach has been voted as one of the best beaches in Greece and even the Mediterranean!
With surroundings full of greenery, fields, olive groves, mountains, wonderful sea views, our villas offer a private escape to an uncommercialized and unspoiled region of the island. Endless choices exist for communication with nature & countryside exploration as well as familiarization with local culture & history.
Athani village, a short walk from the villas (just 800meters), is the closest village to the villas. There, you can find 2 mini- markets, restaurants, a café. The closest restaurant to the villas (5 mins walk), just before you reach Athani village is 'Greco Levante' restaurant. It is owned and operated by the villa owners. Its specialities are made by fresh, own produce as the family also has an animal farm and a vegetables garden (both can be visited if you would like so).
You can find all kinds of amenities such as bars, restaurants, ATM, medical centre, super market, all kind of water sports at the picturesque village of Vasiliki (15Kms), which is considered to be the capital of the south of the island. Its bay is well-known as a windsurfer's paradise. Vasiliki accommodates numerous other activities such as Scuba diving (school), Snorkelling, Sea Kayaking, Windsurfing (school), Private boat hire etc. Minimarkets, butcher's and bakery can be found much closer than Vasiliki, at the village of Agios Petros (8kms).
A visit to the southeast part of the island, the so called Doukato cape, is a must-visit. The legend says that the poet Sapfo fell from the steep cliffs as she was disappointed from her love.
