Agios Ioannis beach is on the north west coast, 1.5 kilometres from Lefkas Town. Several kilometres of sand and shingle provide sheltered swimming at one end and, in the afternoons, excellent conditions for windsurfing and kite surfing at the other end. There are 6 beachfront tavernas and several bars catering for both traditional and international tastes.
Behind the beach there are a small number of houses, hidden amongst olive groves. Villa Karina is one of these houses and is just a 10 minute walk to the beach.
Spiros and his wife Simeoni own Villa Karina, Villa Nicholetta and Villa Vanessa. Each villa has a garden of lawns, flower borders and trees to provide privacy and there is a good distance between each property to prevent disturbance. Spiros farms the neighbouring land and guests are often given fresh fruit, vegetables and wine as part of the owners’ hospitality.
Lefkas Town is a walk of 10 minutes or an easy bike ride (complimentary bikes are provided) along a flat access track. The town has a good selection of tavernas, shops and bars with attractive seafront locations.
