The Ionian Islands region
Lefkada is the island with the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean such as Egremni and Porto Katsiki . In the west side of the island the mountains go down and meet the coasts! Vivid blue seas,golden sandy beaches, unique sunsets, waterfalls,muntain up to 1200m high, the 100m high white cliff of Cape Lefkata,old churches, natural monuments, consist that Lefkas is an ideal place to go.
Summers are dry , the seas are generally calm and the temperature is between 21-27oC.In spring and autumn the weather is nice, a lot of suny days and the temperature is between 16-23 oC.In winter time the temperature is between 9-16 oC, there is a wet and windy period but a lot of suny days and marvelous colours from the nature
Lefkas is an astonishingly picturesque little island where you can relax away from the crowds. From Lefkas you can have daily cruses to the nearest islands such as Ithaki, Kefalonia, Meganisi, Skorpios and many others.
Sailing is possibly the most popular activity to enjoy from accommodation in Lefkas. Sailing around the Ionian Islands is hugely rewarding, dropping anchor when you discover a secluded bay or throwing a line out behind the boat and trying to catch lunch. There are yacht charter companies and sailing schools in the island.
Windsurfing is excellent in VASILIKI, one of the best place in Greece.
The clear warm waters which surround Lefkas are perfect for scuba diving. There is an accredited diving school in Nidri, where you can learn to dive or visit well regarded dive sights all around the island, especially some of the cave dives on offer.
The beauty of the island does not merely revolve around the coast. There are many breath taking views to see, as well as beautiful natural spots and peaceful mountain villages (both inhabited and deserted), making walking, mountain biking and horse riding holidays a magnificent option. You will enjoy the warm hospitality, and magnificent Greek food.
Wind surf in Vasilki,caves for scuba driving, waterfalls in Nidri,cycling, walks to the agricultural land with old olive groves and vineyards, horse riding, walking,a visit to Byzantine monasteries can make your vacation unforgetable.

"a heavenly place."
Words can not easily describe the beauty and the magic of this place. These houses are located in total privacy above the sea where you have the most amazing views. These are giving you a hard time to even take a book to read!
The beauty of this place is the tranquility and peacefulness perfectly aligned with the discreet elegancy in every detail of the villas - i found it overwhelming.
It`s this very special magic that captures you the moment you cross the hill and only come close to the villas, when heaven and sea seem to become one.
The villas are very exclusive and beautiful furnished - from the beds to the baths to the kitchen, the living room, the pool, the outside areas....all premium quality!
Most obviously it is a perfect place to spend your summer vacation, but also it is great to spend spring, autumn and even winter time there, as the villas are perfectly insulated, providing good protection for colder days, also you have the sweet fireplace to enjoy homely days with every concievable comfort.
The hosts themselves, Mrs and Mr Sideri, created that place with such love and compassion and both of them are point to point figures of all the above listed - amazing people, very helpful and open minded and wonderful to get to know.
I have been visiting twice within last year and I am already planning to come back this year again. I can`t wait to be back!
