our location

The scenery in southwest of Lefkada is mountainous and wild, with rich greenery, unspoilt by tourism, yet, it is one of the areas that are visited by every single visitor in the island due to its famous beaches.


Our village is a very quiet one, hence no noise from cars or nightlife, only nature sounds, birds, chicken and occassionally donkeys. There is only one taverna with delicious home-made cuisine within walking distance while the closest shops are within 1.5kms at the next village. However, cars with supplies such as bakery products, groceries or fish, stop by the main square on a daily basis. Inhabitants are mainly producers of honey but they also produce oil and wine.


We are proud of being one of the few vacation rental homes so close to some of Greece's best beaches. Breathtaking Porto Katsiki, exotic Egremni, impressive Gialos, are all must-visit beaches.
