All the facilities of the house and the surrounding area, the gardens and the BBQ are at our guests' disposal.
During July and August we will be in our summer house in the next lot, descreetly at your disposal.
SAILING & CRUISES!
The wonderful landscapes give way to equally wonderful seascapes, with azure waters bathing white sands in coves adorned with picturesque fishing villages. Sail around the island to explore all those unspoiled spots. As a matter of fact, sailing has developped in a rather impressive way here. The modern marina in the town of Lefkada can host up to 620 vessels, attracting Robinsons in quest of fun and adventure on the island of Lefkada and on the smaller ones opposite Nydri: Prigkiponissia, Meganissi with the countless coves, Kalamos and Kastos with the secluded beaches and sea caves. If diving is your cup of tea, the lefkadian sea bed will fascinate you with the unforgettable images you’ll see unfold before your eyes.
SEA SPORTS & MORE!
Sea sports rule on Lefkada! Enjoy pedalo, canoe and water ski rides, or indulge in the pleasure of more “sophisticated” activities, ranging from barefoot to mono ski, double ski, wake board and knee board. If you want to alternate beach games with water ones, you are in the right place. Let us just mention a few ones to dispel any possible doubts of yours: fly-fish, tubes, banana, crazy-sofa, big marble, etc. A Centre of Sea Sports is in operation in the area of Nydri, providing expertise and equipment. Go parasailing over the bay of Vassiliki and all the way to the beautiful - ex Onassis owned - island of Scorpio. Paragliding is a blast of a choice too, especially when you want to go downhill over the area of Kathisma and land on the beautiful beach.
