Watching the sun burst into a colourful collection of pinks and violets over the breathtaking Ionian Sea is a popular pastime on the Greek island of Lefkada (also referred to as Lefkas). Located of the west of Mainland Greece, Lefkada is big enough to be connected by a bridge to the mainland and others including Corfu, Ithaka, Kithira, and Kefalonia. Beyond the principle Ionian Islands there is a vast archipelago, which has captured the imaginations of travellers for centuries.
Walk the same paths as legendary kings of the past with Lefkada apartments
Indeed, while the Cyclades seem to gather all the Greek hype these days, it’s the Ionians which first sparked modern interest in travel to Greece. With the fine Lefkada apartments and holiday homes this location has to offer, it's easy to see why. Beaches around Lefkada villas are incredible, although if you’re a fan of more secluded and romantic spots of sand, then head east of the town Vassiliki or to the seemingly undiscovered Kathisma Beach, where even millennia later you’ll have sense that this land has not changed much since Odysseus lived here – many scholars contend that the real, historical Ithaca was on these very lands. Odysseus must have revelled in the powdery golden sands and soul-warming sun before in the end his gaze out into the pristine blue of the Adriatic Sea became too compelling and he just had to set sail and explore. Avoid his fate and stay nestled in your Lefkada villas, enjoying everything this island has to offer.
Enjoy the views during your stay in Lefkada villas
With a pair of jet skis, a canoe, or equipment for windsurfing or kite surfing, you too may experience the thrill of the waters the Odysseus first felt, although unlike the great traveller, you can head back to the pool in your renal property or relax on the beach when you fancy some delightful basking in the sun, followed by a vibrant nightlife served up at the local resorts. Dance clubs, bars, theatre and other entertainment options are abound throughout the night. Booking a private villa or holiday home here offers good value all around Lefkada. Try not to stay stuck on the beach, though. The hidden charm of Lefkada is in its inland villages such as Agios Nikitas village on the west coast of the island. One of the most famous attractions in Lefkada is the Castle of Avia Mavra, which was converted from a Byzantine Church into a Turkish mosque. It makes for a fascinating and highly rewarding visit. If you're in search of a beautiful view of the island. the Art Bridge is highly recommended. Make the most of your visit and book your Lefkada villas or holiday rentals today.
