Holidays to Lazarata take you to Greek island Lefkas' rural heart, with plenty of options for daytrips close at hand.

Live like a local

Life doesn't get more laidback and leisurely than this sleepy countryside village, located on the Ionian Island of Lefkas where tradition and tranquillity go hand in hand. Try authentic Greek dishes at al fresco tavernas, then walk them off with a slow stroll through peaceful winding lanes. Bliss.

Change of pace

No holiday to Lefkas is complete without a trip to its namesake capital. Ready to entertain bar-hoppers and museum-goers alike, it's well worth the 30-minute drive. Trendy restaurants and 17th-century churches sit side by side, and it's stacked with shops – reserve some space in your suitcase for souvenirs.

From country to coast

The best beaches are all within close reach. Out west's the sandy stretch of Pefkoulia Beach, and to the east you'll find family-favourite Lygia Beach – both are within a 30-minute drive and boast sunlounger-lined emerald shores. The livelier Nidri is 30 minutes south and a perfect spot to find yourself in for cocktail o'clock.
