Explore Lefkada-Lefkas on your next holiday.

Visit the island of Lefkada-Lefkas on your next holiday. Located in the Ionian Sea, the island is sparsely inhabited and home to several stories in Greek mythology related to love. Sappho is said to have supposedly committed suicide on Lefkada-Lefkas, and the island is also closely related to the goddess Aphrodite and Homer's Odyssey. The island of Lefkada has many stunning beaches. Porto Katsiki is particularly beautiful, and has been voted the most beautiful beach in Greece for the last few years. Additionally, the beach and sports center at Vasiliki is not to be missed. Sailing and windsurfing lessons are a must!

HomeAway has various different types of holiday rentals on Lefkada-Lefkas for every variety of accommodation need. Guests planning for a multi-family house can look into one of HomeAway's property listings under apartments in Lefkada-Lefkos. Alternatively, a single-family group or a romantic couple might be interested in the house listings. These villas in Lefkada-Lefkos feature amenities such as full kitchens and outside party patios.

Things to do

Lefkada:

Discover the capital city of Lefkada. The town is home to just under 14,000 residents, and located on the northern tip of the island. Lefkada is about a 20-minute car ride from Aktion National Airport. The city has been home to several famous people, most notably the former shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis.

Vasiliki:

Vasiliki, a windsurfing center, is the perfect location for athletes and daredevils. Ocean Elements, a sailing company based in Vasiliki, books sailing lessons and tours year-round for adventurous tourists. Windsurfing lessons are also available at both beginner and advanced levels.

Eggremni Beach:

Visit the well-hidden Eggremni Beach. Eggremni is difficult to reach on foot, making it one of the less crowded beaches on the island of Lefkada. However, this beach is worth the effort; the pristine white sand and perfect view are not to be missed.

Lefkada Monastery of Faneromeni:

The Monastery of Faneromeni is located on the west side of the town of Lefkada. Built on the site of the temple of Artemis, this monastery's history and architecture come from the first centuries after Christ. Legend holds that upon Herodion's kneeling in prayer, the former temple collapsed, and the church was built in its place.

Papanikolis Cave:

Take a boat tour around the perimeter of Lefkada, and discover the Papanikolis cave. The cave is named after the Greek submarine Papanikolis, which used to hide in this cave during World War II. The crystal-clear water made for a prime vantage point. Today, there are too many boats entering and exiting to allow for swimming, unfortunately.

Porto Katsiki:

Porto Katsiki is a remote beach on the west coast of Lefkada. Though it is difficult to reach, this beach has become one of the most popular tourist spots on the island. The beach's name means 'goat' in Greek, and is named after the animals that used to receive their baths here.

Weather in Lefkada-Lefkas

Grecian summers are fairly hot and dry, while winters in Greece are mild and rainy. Temperatures reach the high-30s in summer and low-teens in winter. The Etesian winds in summer can be problematic for sailors, but windsurfers flock to the islands for exactly this reason. Lefkada also boasts over 300 days of sunshine annually.

Travel to Lefkada-Lefkas

Aktion National Airport (PVK) is located on the far northern tip of Lefkada. Flights arrive daily from both mainland Greece and other European mainland airports. Car-carrying and passenger ferries run between mainland Greece and all other major islands daily in the low season, and more often in the high tourist season.

Our Villa (we were 2 adults and our 2 children), had anything we needed and the cleaning lady was so sweet and caring! Dioni the owner was in contact with us 24/7, although we didn't really need a lot to ask of her as we felt comfortable from the very first moment! The pool was maintained super clean, the interiors and extras are very carefully decorated and you just can't get enough of the views! We will definitely return!

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      This is the most beautiful place I have ever been! The setting of the villas is absolutely peaceful, quite and wonderfully embedded on the mountain in pure nature overlooking the Ionian Sea, including the islands of Ithaka and Kefalonia. The panoramic views are so stunning - it is easy to just stay with it for days. Every villa has it´s own large surrounding with a beautiful terrace and balcony, an amazing own swimmingpool and outdoor shower. Embedded in lovely gardens with wild roses, herbs and trees. The villas are furnished in high quality and have a very stylish interior, lovingly arranged by the owner Ourania Sideri. The beds are very comfortable and of high quality - everything is well equipped by the luxury brand Cocomat. The rooms are spacious and light-flooded, the living room has a very cozy, large sofa and fireplace, open kitchen and huge dining table. The villas are equipped with air condition that is also working as a heater. The bathrooms are also very spacious, very beautiful and of high quality. Every sleeping room has it´s own beautiful bathroom with either shower or bathing tub. There is high class outdoor furniture both upstairs and downstairs, including large dining tables, lounge chairs and sunshades. On top, the villas have a yoga house which is fully equipped and has the same outstanding views and stylish decor, also light-flooded and very spacious. More on top, the villas have their own private beach!! A turquoise peaceful cove that you reach on a very beautiful and easy hike - a path of only 30 minutes - that leads you down the green mountain with wild flowers and trees, overlooking the Ionian Sea. Words can hardly describe the beauty. Absolute privacy. Pure peace. Next to the villas very exclusive setting overlooking the sea and mountains, you reach the next village Vasiliki in only 10 minutes by car. Here you find everything - supermarket, pharmacy, little shops and a very charming harbour with delicious restaurants placed by the sea. Only 10 minutes by car you find the famous Beach of Porto Katsiki and you have the gourgeus road to the Lighthouse - Cape Doukato- presenting you a 360´panoramic view and unforgettable sunsets. The island of Lefkada is an absolute jewel in the Ionian Sea - with it´s turquoise water, white beaches, chalk cliffs and quite coves, charming villages, harbours and the very friendly, open hearted people. With our whole hearts we fell in love with the villas and Lefkada!
