Self-catering holiday rentals in Lefkas for your home stay

Lefkas, or Lefkada as it is also known, is one of the most beautiful of the Greek islands and has everything you could want for a quiet holiday. The isle in the Ionian Sea is famous in Greek mythology and you could be forgiven for thinking little has changed since it was first written that Aphrodite, the goddess of love, was born here. The coast and countryside remain entirely unspoiled by tourism, while the towns have retained their traditional feel. Perhaps the main reason people choose to take a holiday in Lefkas is its magnificent beaches. There are lots of sandy stretches in quiet coves where you can relax in peace, although some of them are only accessible by boat and you will need to arrange a trip from one of the local fishing villages. The best beaches on the island are at Porto Katsiki and Egremni, where imposing cliffs tower over white sand lapped by the clear blue sea. You may prefer to base yourself close to Nidri, the most popular resort on Lefkas, as it has a great beach, along with a range of tavernas serving traditional cuisine and local wine. If you like to get active during your holidays, Vasiliki may be a better choice. The village is located on a bay protected by rugged hills, so is an ideal spot for windsurfing and catamaran sailing, while there are also facilities for mountain biking, tennis and scuba diving. Most of Lefkas's attractions are natural, so sightseeing tends to involve coastal views, waterfalls and strolls up hillsides lined by woodland. However, it is worth spending a day exploring the island's capital, Lefkada Town, which has a selection of eye-catching churches in among the narrow streets lined by traditional houses, as well as museums dedicated to folklore, archaeology and gramophones.

Holiday letting in Lefkas for your short break

There is a wide variety of holiday villas in Lefkas, with houses available that sleep up to 14 people. Most of the properties are modern and have all the facilities you could need, but have been built in a traditional style so they do not look out of place. You can choose from villas in rural hillside settings, ones with magnificent views over the coastline and homes on the outskirts of fishing villages. Almost all of them have swimming pools and private outdoor space suitable for al fresco dining.

Best time to enjoy Lefkas

As most of the island's attractions are outdoors, a summer holiday in Lefkas is an excellent choice. The temperature hits 30°C most days during July and August, so you can look forward to spending hours working on your suntan at the beach or relaxing by the pool at your holiday home. There is also a selection of cultural events each August, including the International Folklore Festival and Feast of the Virgin Mary. You can expect warm weather during the spring and autumn, but without it ever getting uncomfortably hot, so these are both good times for q
