Villas in Lefkas

The unspoilt and truly exquisite Greek Island of Lefkas is brimming with traditional charm and villa holiday appeal. Huge white rocks form an intense landscape, which is softened by an array of lush green valleys, clear blue waters and stunning long, sandy beaches. The low-lying east coast of Lefkas is home to an abundance of leisure facilities and picturesque views, while the rugged cliffs, rocky coves and beautifully exposed shorelines of the west are a magnet for the more adventurous.

Lefkas - An island landscape to savour

Lefkas’ sheer white cliffs and turquoise seas are spectacular, even by Greece’s idyllic standards. Small but utterly magnificent, its size only makes the island easier to explore (and all the easier to fall in love with) from any of our Lefkas villas dotted throughout the island. With its timeless appeal and wonderful Greek traditions, you'll truly love your Lefkas holiday.

  • Lefkas Beaches

    A variety of beautiful beaches line the Lefkas coastline - some sand and others pebble. The east coast is sheltered and pretty with pine and olive trees to the waters edge, while the west – rugged and open – promises azure sea and fabulous stretches of sand, many only reachable by boat. Whether you’re looking for a mile-long main beach, a smaller family-friendly bay or a romantic secluded cove on your villa holiday, the Lefkas shoreline has something for everyone. Waterfront tavernas and beachside cafés are also found in most main summer holiday resorts.

  • Lefkas History

    Once separated by a canal, a swing-bridge now links the island of Lefkas to the ancient and beautiful region of western Greece. On a villa holiday here, you can enjoy all the benefits of a Greek Island atmosphere but with easy driving access to the mainland. Here, a wealth of amphitheatres, historical sites and monuments are open for all to explore. Several museums look back at Lefkas’ history and culture through the ages, and much of the local heritage is retained to this day with traditional costumes, cuisine and pastimes.

  • Lefkas Food

    Tavernas can be found in every resort, offering fish and meat meze – a traditional way of sampling all the Greek Island flavours at one sitting. As to be expected, locally-caught fresh seafood is an excellent dish in Lefkas. Wind down at an outdoor table, sip on an ouzo and enjoy the reasonable prices that the island has to offer. All of the restaurants in Lefkas offer home cooked local dishes and most cater superbly for those on a family holiday. A wider variety of international restaurants can also be found in larger villa holiday resorts.

  • Lefkas Activities

    Known as the sailing holiday capital of the Ionian, you can expect to see flotillas of yachts passing through and mooring up in Lefkas every day. For those with nautical leanings, instructors are on hand to teach you how to sail your own vessel. Regular boat trips ferry passengers to neighbouring Greek Islands, often accompanied by friendly and inquisitive dolphins hitching a ride on the wake. Lefkas has also become a haven for leisure activities like windsurfing, cycling, hiking and swimming.

The Taverna we used, albeit the only one, was very good and the staff very helpful and friendly. A lovely little beach and never crowded
As we didn’t have a car we only had the choice of one Restaurant.

Really relaxing yet lots of places to visit and things to do. Some lovely restaurants in great settings and views.
The drive and turn to get access to the villa. It is a relatively easy walk down but a trek on the way back although a taxi will take you, we got them to drop us on the top road and walked 2 mins steep decline to villa. We alternated walking back via the top road longer walk but not as steep but still challenging if you aren’t fit!!
