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. Villa Loukoumi sits on a hillside terrace just under one kilometre inland from Episkopi beach and the seaside village of Nikiana.
Loukoumi 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.
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 the sandy beaches on the west coast. A hire boat recommended to discover the immediate coastline and the offshore islands.
Loukoumi is a comfortable base for these explorations.
