The east coast of Lefkas, from Lefkas Town in the north to Nidri (a coastal stretch of 15 kilometres), contains a string of beaches and small seaside villages, which offer the traditional trappings of tourism (tavernas, bars, supermarkets, plastic lilo & beach ball shops, watersports, boat hire etc).
From the coastal road there are many narrow, country roads which wind their way up through olive groves and pine forest to a mountainous interior with small hamlets and villages leading a more traditional way of life.
Villa Despina sits on a hillside terrace, next door to Villa Rossa, on the outskirts of the small village of Katouna, just over one kilometre inland from Episkopi beach and the seaside villages of Ligia and Nikiana.
Villa Despina is surrounded by olive groves and looks down over the roofs of neighbouring houses and across the sea to the mountains of the Greek mainland.
Lots of balconies and terraces to enjoy or escape from the sun.
Lefkas is a large and diverse island with some of the best beaches in Greece and a beautiful interior of forested valleys and mountain villages. A hire car is recommended to explore the island and a hire boat (from nearby Ligia port) recommended to discover the immediate coastline and the offshore islands.
The beautiful sandy beaches on the west coast are 10 kilometres away.
