Make a holiday villa in Tsoukalades your home away from home

The Ionian island of Lefkada is the ultimate tourist’s dream; picturesque beaches smiled on by cloudless skies, slow-paced traditional Greek village life that has survived the discovery of this locale as a touristic gem and plenty of outdoor activity. But it also boasts mountains, the highest of whose peak rises to 1,158m above sea level. It is also surrounded by Greek mythology, having being mentioned as the place of goddess Aphrodite’s birth. One of the places which tourists resort to for holiday accommodation while savouring Lefkada’s delights is the village of Tsoukalades. It is more than ideal as it offers quick access to stunning beaches and divine sunsets besides luxurious lodgings. HomeAway provides an assortment of holiday villas in Tsoukalades as well as apartments to suit diverse needs. a number of these boast swimming pools and other features put in place to guarantee maximum comfort and enjoyment.

Things to do

-Beaches: After enduring the chill of winter most holidaymakers are eager to set foot on beaches where they can lie under the sun in full strength to chase away every memory of the cold. Less than a kilometre from their holiday homes in Tsoukalades visitors will find Pefkoulia where they can stroll on stretches of sand and swim in the calm waters of the Ionian Sea. Further afield is the incredible Eggrenmi Beach which, though pebbly and a bit difficult to access, is one of the prettiest in all Greece.

-Water sports: Windsurfers of all walks love to spend time on the island of Lefkada as it experiences strong gusts of wind that are conducive to the sport. In Vasiliki is a windsurfing centre where one can get both gear and lessons. The Lefkada coastline is interesting to explore and one can join organised boat trips around the island to take a closer look at its gorgeous secluded bays. Ferries are also available for island to island jaunts on the cheap.

-Sightseeing: The island of Lefkada is replete with interesting little villages in which the ancient buildings and the traditional way of life lived in them have been maintained over centuries. Ambling through the villages of Sfakiotes is a great way for those residing in Tsoukalades holiday rentals to burn an afternoon. The terrain might by hilly and physically challenging to some extent but those whose spirit of adventure won’t be so easily crushed will enjoy traipsing through ancient wells and water mills and olive groves handed down for generations.

-Townscapes: Should they find themselves in Lefkada Town, visitors should head to the Platia Agios Spyridon square which is always alive with activity. Here, especially during summer, there is always some colourful event happening, such as the highly-anticipated summer arts festival. The square also plays host to processions that pass by the town during Greek Orthodox feast days. Beautiful churches adorn this town and visitors will find them well worth exploring, starting with the 17th century edifice found in the square.

-Food and drink: For a nice family meal or a romantic dinner, residents of Tsoukalades holiday villas can head down to the aptly named Seaside Restaurant. Aside from the broad range of traditional Greek and other kinds of cuisine, visitors can expect a warm welcome and sublime ambiance. The view as one would expect, complements the meal perfectly. One can expect the same fare from the Seven Islands restaurant which sits right on the beach.

Weather in Tsoukalades

The weather here is Mediterranean but temperate. It is the kind that is conducive to summer sunbathing but also to outdoor activity. Between June and August holidaymakers should expect temperatures upwards of 27°C and hardly any signs of rainfall. Savvy travellers will however book their Tsoukalades holiday homes for September when temperatures are slightly lower and the beaches more deserted. Choosing May as one’s time for a getaway to Lefkada is also a great idea as temperatures are in the twenties and one can avoid peak season prices.

Travel to Tsoukalades

Being less than 10 miles from the Aktion Airport, booking a flight to this facility only makes sense for holidaymakers. They will find that whether they’re travelling from London, Manchester, Rome or Prague, they can get a direct flight to Aktion, especially during the peak holiday season. Upon arrival they will find that their best bet for transport to their holiday homes in Tsoukalades is an airport taxi or a rental car. Public transport from the airport is at best infrequent.

A beautiful comfortable villa in an amazing location

4 of 5
Perfect location after spending a week sailing between islands the Ionian - so the villa was a welcome chill out venue. As described, the property was well equipt and had plenty of space for all 7 of us - adults and teens. The pool is super. The house was clean and comfortable. Stunning views. Lovely aspect. Wifi fab. Outside seating a real treat - we moved about the villa to suit our mood and level of sunworahipping!

Could it get any better?

5 of 5
Our second visit to Ionian Nest. Could it get any better? Well, yes. Although nothing has changed it felt like we were coming home to our own holiday home in Greece. Nothing to add. Please see our previous glowing review.
