Lefkas nestles away in the centre of the main Ionian Islands and is the only island linked to mainland Greece. A swing bridge gives easy access by road, with the newly extended and refurbished airport of Preveza about a 30 minute drive. The island and the surrounding area has a lot to offer - anything from sailing, windsurfing, cycling, scuba-diving, walking, exploring ancient archaeological sites or just that lazy beach holiday. You will probably find some of the most picturesque views around, looking out from the calmer waters of the east coast overlooking the famous Onassis island of Scorpios, the other islands and mainland Greece and in contrast on the west coast you will find the best beaches and most spectacular sunsets.

Lefkas maintains its charm because of the strict building laws which do not allow high storey blocks. Although less commercialised then its neighbouring islands Lefkfas offer a wide choice of villas, both in the main tourist areas and in the quieter more secluded hillside areas. Off the beaten track you will still find villages where old stone houses are being renovated and Greek women sitting outside crocheting and embroidering. In contrast, as well as the fishing villages and smaller coastal retreats there are two main resorts on the island, Nidri and Vassiliki offering just about everything for the holiday maker, with both having harbours where ferry and boat trips go to the other islands.
