You can see traditional dances, music and songs from around the world. It is held in the Open Theatre of Lefkas, as well as on the streets and in squares in villages all over Lefkas. After a busy day enjoying the festivities, relax with a cocktail at sundown in one of our villas with private pools.
Why not hire a car and explore everything that this beautiful part of Greece has to offer. Head north along the Greek Mainland to the town of Parga to discover the history of this region. Parga Castle and Ali Pasa’s Castle stand face to face on opposite sides of the port. These medieval fortresses tower over the water and provide an excellent view if you choose to hike up to the top.
Family Holidays in Lefkas
Lefkas is ideal for a family villa holiday, although this part of Greece is better known for being a relaxing location, you will still find great resorts for the family to enjoy, with some fantastic windsurfing and swimming locations. With such calm waters and not so crowded resorts, it is a perfect destination to book one of our villas for young families. The best way to see the sights of Lefkas and the neighbouring island of Meganissi is to take to the water and enjoy a scenic boat trip. There are plenty of welcoming tavernas that are family friendly. Enjoy authentic Greek cuisine by the sea, tucking into some freshly caught seafood, whilst admiring the setting sun.
For an authentic Greek experience for all of the family head to The Olive Museum “Fabbrica” which is located in Syvros, a picturesque village in south Lefkas. Learn about the history and the craft of Greece’s most famous export in a former olive oil factory. You'll get to sample some and find some quirky oil-themed souvenirs in the gift shop.

For those seeking adventurous activities head to the town of Vasiliki in the south of Lefkas, which is known as the undisputed ‘Windsurf Capital of Europe’. For beginners, head there in the morning, when the winds are calmer and then the afternoon is yours to explore the surrounding areas or relax by one of our villas with private pools.
