LUXURY VILLAS IN LEFKADA
At Kathisma Beach & near Agios Nikitas Village
Kathisma Bay Villas are situated just 300m above Kathisma beach in an elevated hillside position directly overlooking the bay, at the end of a private road with no through traffic, and the nearest neighbour over 200m away. They are one of the best located Lefkada Villas in the island of Lefkada.
Kathisma Beach is a large stunning white pebble sand beach on the beautiful West Coast of Lefkada Island, with spectacular azure and turquoise waters and incredible sunsets. It is one of the most well known and popular beach resorts in Lefkada Island, and during the peak summer months the beach is lively and partly organised with sun loungers and umbrellas serviced by a number of taverna’s and beach cafés/bars. For adrenaline junkies there are also professional paragliding operators offering spectacular flights over the bay.
During the busy summer months the elevated secluded position of the villas overlooking Kathisma Beach enables you to enjoy the views and feel like you are part of the action at the beach, from the comfort and privacy of your own pool lounger! In the quiet season the beach offers serene wild tranquillity at its best
The access to the beach is through the main road and it would take around 15 minutes to walk to the beach or alternatively a very short 2 minute drive!
Kathisma Beach is also situated a short 3 mins drive from the prettiest fishing village in Lefkada; the village of Agios Nikitas, with its numerous tavernas and café/bars. Also it is only a 15mins drive from Lefkada Town, the Island’s main centre.

The island with the most stunning beaches
Lefkada is the fourth largest Ionian island and is popular but still relatively untouched, offering stunning coastline and beaches with a mountainous pine clad interior, charming character villages, vineyards and great tavernas, café’s and bars. The east coast is more developed and populated with pretty coastline overlooking the island gulf while the west coast is less developed and has an untouched dramatic coastline with stunning vistas.
The West Coast of Lefkada is famous for its numerous stunning white pebble sand beaches many of which, are recognised as the best in Greece, including Porto Kastiki, Egremni, Milos, Pefkulia and several others which are situated nearby.

Hiring a small powerboat or sailing yacht or taking a boat cruise on the east coast to explore the many bays and islands in the Gulf is a highly recommend day excursion.

Lefkada is very accessible as it is the only island in Greece connected by a bridge to the mainland (so no need for ferries)! This makes getting to Lefkada very easy and provides several options for the traveller.
Preveza-Aktio Airport is the nearest airport to the island, less than 20 minutes away servicing many direct European scheduled and charter flights from May to October. Flying to Corfu is another option, which would also require a relatively short ferry ride to get to the mainland.
Finally flying to Athens or Thessaloniki would also work for those that would like to check out any of these cities before heading to Lefkada.
