Covered in a blanket of olive groves and vineyards, all backed by a breath-taking view of the Ionian Sea, Lefkimi is overflowing with natural beauty. A wander around the maze of narrow cobbled streets fringed with Venetian-style buildings, antique piazzas, and pastel-coloured houses will leave you hooked. Split in half by a small river, fishermen travel up and down for access to the sea, so it’s no surprise Lefkimi is famous for its fresh and delicious seafood. For a taste of the island, head to the open-air coffee shops, family-run restaurants, and traditional tavernas on the riverside for some tasty Greek delicacies.

Further afield, a ten-minute drive will take you to Vitalades Beach, including a scattering of sun loungers and beach bars, there’s no better place to truly relax and get away from it all.
