A stay on the Ionian island of Lefkada is just the thing to take away the stress of city living and retrieve total peace of mind. To this end holidaymakers can embark on sea breeze-swept beachside promenades and ambles through laid back villages which have preserved their charm over time. This locale has also distinguished itself as a prime water sport destination thanks to the steady winds that blow across it. Agios Nikitas holiday homes are where a good number of visitors opt to stay to take advantage of its snug hillside location which commands an incredible vantage point over the sea. This village is found to the west of Lefkada and boasts a nice selection of tavernas and bars from which holidaymakers can seek refreshments. The holiday villas offered by HomeAway in this lovely village are a walking distance from the beach and come with a host of great facilities.
-Beaches: This location is known for its sublime beaches one of which lies at the foot of Agios Nikitas. It’s a picturesque pebble beach where those staying in Agios Nikitas holiday villas can catch some delicious rays. Further along Lefkada’s west coast is the equally gorgeous Porto Katsiki. Getting there calls for a bit of footwork, but as they drink in the unparalleled sea views and admire the majestic mountains pasted against a deep blue sky, they’ll be happy they took the trouble. Eggrenmi is another one of Lefkada’s celebrated beaches. It offers warm azure waters, a broad swath of soft sand and a number of beach bars.
-Water sports: Trips around Lefkada and to neighbouring Ionian islands is a great way to spend time here. There are a number of companies that offer boat tours complete with onboard entertainment and meals. Visitors can also charter a yacht for the trip if they have experience in sailing. Alongside their boat ride holidaymakers can go on diving and snorkelling expeditions beneath the surface of the Ionian. Sunbathers can also enjoy the beautiful sunshine from the sundeck of the boat on cosy sunbeds.
-Bike tours: To explore the rich flora and fauna of Lefkada while boosting their physical fitness visitors can go on organised bike tours along designated trails. Keen mountain bikers will enjoy crunching through the hidden tracks along challenging terrain. Regardless of their fitness level holidaymakers will love the ride, more so when the stunning views of the bay appear or as they glide through thick olive groves.
-Food and drink: Visitors staying in Agios Nikitas holiday rentals should make a point of reserving a table at the Seaside Restaurant. Here they will tuck into Greek cuisine at its finest made from fresh, organic ingredients, helped down by fine wine. The seaside setting and friendliness of the staff make the experience all the more unforgettable. Another restaurant boasting an excellent beachside location is The Pinewood Restaurant. Plus their rich, dynamic menu is full of wonderful surprises.
Anywhere from May to October holidaymakers can go to Lefkada and find pleasant holidaying conditions. Those who come as spring is ending will find the island’s flora in full bloom and temperatures just getting into the twenties. Those who come between July and August will find the summer sun out in force and temperatures at this time rarely go below 28°C. It is hot and dry and visitors are advised to arm themselves with sun-block. In October the rainy season begins though temperatures still remain above 20°C. As winter arrives the rains increase and temperatures drop into the teens.
This resort lies about seven miles from the Aktion Airport and visitors will want to book a flight to this airport. Seasonal flights land at Aktion from most European cities.
