Vacation rentals in Lefkada
The island in the Ionian Sea, also known as the "White Island" because of its striking cliffs, is an ideal destination for those who want to escape from mass tourism. Nevertheless, there is a wide range of holiday accommodation in all price ranges. If you are looking for a cosy vacation rental or a modernly furnished holiday home, you will find what you are looking for in coastal towns such as the island capital Lefkada-Stadt, Agios Nikitas, Lygia, Karia, Vasiliki and Nidri. Alternatively, you can retire to a villa-like vacation rental in the heart of the island, where you can enjoy the peace and quiet in the shade of olive trees. Many vacation rentals have their own pool in addition to a sun terrace.

Travelers and Activities
A holiday apartment on Lefkada is an absolute insider tip for beach holidaymakers. On site, the conditions for relaxing days at the sea are ideal thanks to the clean water, lonely bathing bays and the sandy beaches that are rather unusual for Greece. While families with children feel at home on both Agios Beach in the northwest of Lefkada City and Kathisma Beach, couples enjoy the solitude of Milos Bay. Windsurfers and kitesurfers, on the other hand, will find an absolute dream beach in Egremni, reminiscent of the Caribbean and offering ideal wind conditions.
Things to know
Even though the first active holidaymakers arrive on Lefkada in April, the starting signal for the tourist season is not given until May. At average maximum temperatures of 25-29 degrees Celsius, this extends far into September. While the period between June and September is the optimal travel period for bathers and water sports enthusiasts, cultural tourists book their vacation rental best for the months of April, May, September and October, when the temperatures are somewhat milder.
The latest research assumes that Lefkada is the actual model for the legendary island of Ithaca from Homer's epic "Iliad".
Top travel tips
Those who set off from the cosy village of Nidri to the famous waterfalls can look forward to fascinating rock formations and a refreshing swim in the turquoise green water of the natural swimming pools. Particularly adventurous bathers even dare to jump from the surrounding rock faces.On the tracks of the Odyssey
At the beginning of September a large cultural event takes place on the island, which deals with the odyssey of Odysseus in the form of concerts, exhibitions and plays. Those who are interested in Greek mythology and booked their apartment by chance for September should definitely visit the event.Diving in Lefkada
The crystal clear waters off the island's coasts are predestined for dives, especially as there are challenging dive spots for advanced divers as well as dive sites for beginners. The best way to explore the underwater landscape, characterised by colourful coral growth and a diverse fish world, is by guided diving tours from the diving bases in Nikiana, Nidri and Vasiliki.
