Below nearby historical attractions and islands
Just 22 km from Villa Porto Matzavino is the island of Lefkada, which is connected to the mainland by a small bridge. Pretty and quiet, it embodies Greek island life - even today, someone can still see women wearing centuries old traditional attires. Lefkada is famous for having some of the most beautiful beaches of Europe, like the beach of Porto-Katsiki. The southern beach and fishing village of Vasiliki has world-class windsurfing.
Scorpios and Meganisi
Another favorite destination is the small island of Meganisi, which can be reached by ferry from Lefkada. Of special interest is a boat ride around Scorpios, the private island of the late Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis.
Ithaki and Cephalonia
Ferries depart daily from the port of Vasiliki in Lefkada to the islands of Cefalonia and Ithaki (a 1.5 hour ride). Both are beautiful, traditional and pristine islands.
Route to Preveza
The picturesque town of Preveza, built in the narrow entrance of the Amvrakikos gulf, is an interesting destination and distance only 15 km from the villa. The Neoclassical architecture of the old town, the outdoor market, and its renowned fish taverns that line the harbor, make Preveza a treat to the visitor in the summertime.
A few kilometers outside of Preveza we find the ruins and the museum of ancient Nicopolis (in greek: "city of victory") -one of the most important cities of the early Roman and Christian eras. Roman Emperor Octavian founded the city in celebration of his victory over Marcus Antonius and Cleopatra in the naval battle of Actium, outside Preveza, in 31 BC. The significance and cultural strength of the city can be seen in its prominent castle walls, two large theatres, aqueduct, as well as several Byzantine monuments. The ancient ruins of Nicopolis are a beautiful site, and are truly worth visiting!
The historic Acheron site and Nekromanteion – the oracle of the dead, important locations in Ancient Greece, are located about 1 hour drive from the house, near the village of Ammoudia,. at the delta of the river Acheron. According to Homer, Acheron River was at the edge of the “flat" world and it was the entrance to the Underworld, the world of the dead!
A beautiful town, about 80 km scenic drive from Preveza, Parga is built on a steep hillside around a small bay, with narrow traffic-free streets and alleys that give the town a strong Greek island feel. Cafes, bars and restaurants line the harbor or are hidden in the uphill alleys with beautiful views of the bay. A vibrant international destination provides its visitors with a variety of wonderful sights, activities, shops and nightlife. At the top of the hill sits an old Venetian fortress that offers panoramic views of the sea and the area.
Daily ferry excursions from Parga can take you to the islands of Paxi, Antipaxi, Corfu, as well as other destinations.
