Where to stay in Lefkada

To escape the big crowds and soak up some island atmosphere, stay in one of the small villages on the eastern side of Lefkada, where you can choose from hillside villas providing modern amenities and sweeping sea views. For a more urban experience, explore the mid-range hotels of the island's eponymous capital, which offer air-conditioned rooms, free Wi-Fi, and easy foot access to shops, bars, and restaurants. Active vacationers can also try the small resort town of Vasiliki, a windsurfing center known for its affordable inns.
