Or, perhaps a more active holiday swimming and snorkelling in the sea at the nearby beach – perhaps followed by lunch/dinner, coffee, or a drink at the excellent and friendly taverna. The villa is a great base for walking and cycling as the area is criss-crossed with many tracks. A good map and careful navigation make it perfectly possible to travel in safety all over the island without using the main roads. This is a great way to explore and you're likely to encounter interesting sites, less well known locations and some magnificent views over the whole spectacular Ionian chain. If you like beaches, Lefkas is known for some of the most superb beaches in the Mediterranean and the award winning Porto Katsiki with its golden sands and clear turquoise sea is only 30 mins by car from the villa. The Baby Beach - a really sweet little cove is 5 minutes drive, 10-15 mins walk, 1.5km. Amousso Bay is 8 mins drive by track/road.Vassiliki, the capital of southern Lefkas is within very easy reach of Arbutus – and is a sailing and windsurfing paradise - one of the top European windsurfer locations. With its harbours and port, Vassiliki hums in the evening with al fresco dining along the quay, many bars and night spots. It's also possible to take cruises from here to visit the nearby islands – you might well see dolphins along the way. There are stables close to Vassiliki for anyone wanting to ride. The church at Marandahori, the nearest village, houses the relics of St George. Stone artefacts and pots displayed at The Archaeological Museum of Lefkas were found at the Neolithic cave Chirospilia in Evghiras again only a short distance from Arbutus. There's the Venetian Fort near the swing bridge joining the mainland and at Aktion the extensive ruins of Nikopolis built when Caesar defeated Antony in 31BC. For local culture, Karyia in the mountains is the lace making capital and the winery producing Lefkadan wine and offering tours and tastings are both interesting trips. The island is only 40 miles long so everything is close.. Whether you want a restful, recuperative time, one more active and challenging or maybe a combination, if you choose to stay in this blissful and magical place you are offered the memorable holiday of your choice. .
The whole villa terraces, pool, garden and olive grove are for guest exclusive use.
