A great tour to the mountain of Lefkada and the villages

An amazing adventure private tour in Lefkada with Paulina, Karolina and Wioletta from Poland. 

They saw almost every important spot of the mountain of Lefkada.

We visited nature, traditional villages, ruins, old houses, and historical & cultural-religious spots, and also hidden spots of traditional local production of Lefkada, combined with photo shooting and local wine tasting. 

An awesome family that travels together every year to a different destination and they really want to know the hidden side of the place they visit.

This time was the lucky one!

After an early pick up from Paleros, we headed straight to Lefkada where our adventure started! 

You can see our moments below on this unique photo set.

An amazing tailor-made private boat tour to Egremni and Porto Katsiki took place last week.

It was a great experience in Lefkada we had together with a really wonderful family of 4, from the U.S. 

We managed to visit all the famous and infamous beaches of the south and the west coast of Lefkada, from Porto Katsiki and Egremni to Meganisi and Skorpios island.

We ended up knowing each other better with some in-depth conversations of personal and social aspects!

Every tour is a specific experience combined with tradition and culture, and for this specific one, we decided to overcome the normal path and to explore amazing alternative ideas to spend your time in Lefkada.

The mountainous Olive Oil Factory in Platistoma

We had an early meeting in the morning with Christoph and we headed straight to the Mountainous oil Factory of Lefkada at Platistoma. 

The owner welcomed us warmly and he showed & informed us about the history of the olive oil in Lefkada, the traditional techniques as well as the modern ones. 

The place has also an external section where it is developed as a museum with the most traditional Lefkadian machines for olive oil production that you can imagine!

The old ruined windmill in Karya village

Then we left to see a demolished old traditional windmill in the forest of Karya village. 

After a few meters of walking among the pine trees and the spider net... yes the old windmill is still there after all these years, just waiting for us!

Then we explored Englouvi and the rural daily life of the village.

The abandoned "ghost" US Army base

Our Next stop was the abandoned US Army base at the top of the mountain of Lefkada. 

An abandoned area for almost 3 decades now, it shut down after the end of the cold war.

It is a ghost place where you can easily travel in time by watching the ruins of the hi-tech of that time. 

A wonderful area with huge antennas used for strategic defensive air control back in time.

Profitis Helias chapel

Later we visited Profitis Helias the small white church you will see at the top of the mountain of Lefkada.

An awesome view overlooking the northwest, the north and also the east side of Lefkada! A perfect spot for a fruit salad and some hydration on such a hot day.

At an altitude of over 1000 feet stands the chapel of Prophet Elias, protector of the village of Englouvi. The area is considered to be among the most interesting and remarkable parts of Lefkadas. It attracts both local and foreign visitors.

The view from there is unique: the mountain of Nikiana, Sfakiotes, Skaroi of Lefkada, and the immense Ionian Sea...

Every year on the eve, they make a Feast of Saint Elias.

The Folklore Museum of Karya village

Our next stop was the Folklore Museum in Karya where we learned about a special local embroidery technique of a lady from who lived in Karya village between 1860 and 1950 called Maria Koutsochero. 

Due to the fact that she was missing one hand since her accident at a young age, she implemented a special one-hand technique on the clothes that she made.  

We also saw old local antiques from 200-300 years ago. An amazing place that connects you with the p[ast and the local tradition of the mountainous Lefkada.

Kavalikefta beach

After a light and delicious lunch with Mouzaka and Papoutsakia in Karya village in the most traditional taverna of Lefkada called "Ta Platania", we took our way to Kavalikefta beach on the west side of Lefkada. 

It was Christoph's very first desire to see the rock formations inside the turquoise waters. After having a coffee and some water in the canteen we took some photos at the beach.

The last stop of the tour was Gyra and Kastro beach where we saw windmills by the sea and also an old abandoned discotheque from the 1980s ruined over the years by the sea. 

After all, this was just an excellent day with Christoph and his great and polite personality.

Really happy to meet you, my friend!

Holidays in Lefkada? Visit the cosmopolitan Nydri

Holidays in Greece. Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

Visit Nydri or Nidri, the diva of the island of Lefkada. Nydri has the cosmopolitan air that was given to him by Onassis when in 1963 he bought Scorpio island directly opposite. The statue of Onassis at Nydri beach shows the love of its inhabitants for the great Greek tycoon.

Holidays in Greece? Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

It is located only 17 km from the town of Lefkada and is located in the eastern part of the island. Nydri is built in a green plain along the sea.

In front of it is the islet Madouri with the neoclassical mansion of Aristotelis Valaoritis and Scorpio of Onassis.

Nydri is also preferred by those who travel by boat in the Ionian Sea, having a safe and modern harbor. The tourist infrastructure in Nydri is excellent with many accommodations (hotels, rooms, apartments, studios), restaurants and taverns, shopping and nightlife shops.

Nydri beach is the most popular spot in the settlement, from where one can admire the sunset.

In Nydri there are signs that will take you 2km to the waterfalls of Dimosari, one of the natural sights of the island.

The route is wonderful because it is surrounded by a plain of olives and plane trees. The path starts from the village of Rahis and will lead you to the first waterfall that will impress you with its steep cliffs and the natural cavity it forms.

Going up the stairs you will reach the second that is larger than the first one and will coincide with the sound of its water. If it's a hot summer day do not hesitate to dive into its cool waters.

Holidays in Greece. Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

Also opposite Nydri, in the bay of Vlychos is the chapel of Agia Kyriaki. You can reach it either by caique or by following the path that is 1 km after the village of Geni. The path is next to the sea.

From the chapel, you will have to overlook Nydri and the islet of Valaoritis, Madouri. On your way to the chapel, on the hill of the Nymphs, you will find the tomb of archaeologist Doerpfeld who had claimed that Lefkada is Homer's Ithaca.

Holidays in Greece. Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

Archaeologist Wilhelm Doerpfeld, a supporter of the theory that Lefkada is Odysseus' Ithaca and his palace was located in Nydri, was found in excavations he made in the plain of Nydri at the site of Stenos, Tombs of the Early Helladic period, graveships and relics of buildings that are dated prehistoric times to Roman.

Holidays in Greece. Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

These findings suggest that Nydri has been inhabited since the prehistoric times.

The beach at Nydri has direct access from the hotels of the area and extends from Perigiali to Nydri.

The small beach of Passa, located just before Nydri, to the east of the town of Lefkada, is recommended for exploration.

Holidays in Greece. Chose the cosmopolitan Nydri in Lefkada - Tripatricks

From Nydri you can take a day trip to the beaches of Meganisi, the two beaches of Scorpios that have been given for swimming to the public, the neo-classical house of Valaoritis on the island of Madouri and the cave in Meganissi that sheltered the submarine Papanikolis.

Meganisi a 'small diamond' of Lefkada chosen by tycoons for holidays!

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

When big yachts with passengers, international tycoons, and expensive loaded people, choose for their favorite anchor Meganissi, and the surrounding small islands...in the Ionian sea in Greece...

...then it is worth seeing why Meganissi has turned into a superstar of the Ionian islands ...! 

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

With an area of just 22.4 sq. km, Meganisi counts more than 30 kilometers of exotic coastlines and owes everything to its idyllic shape.

To the south is a simple, narrow islet, ideal for being fooled to cross the Ionian Sea.

To the north, the land spreads and the edges are divided into varied segments that sink into the sea, creating natural harbors reminiscent of fjords, serene, well-known and unexplored beaches.

In the largest island of Televoids (which belongs to Scorpios), the shores are countless.

Others with rocks and others with the pine trees bordering on the waves, most of them with white coarse sand and fine gravel contrasting with the green-blue waters, are made for you, who yearned patiently, hoping for that calm.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

But you also enjoy the feeling that you are somewhat "important," somewhere that many would like to be with you. And you do not have to be bluish or recognize strangers.

Meganissi is still accessible for all, with luxurious villas and well-kept budget rooms, and something like that is for food.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

The ferry from Lefkada's Nydri directly opposite takes less than half an hour to take you to Vathy, in the northern part.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

This is the main harbor of the island, a traditional fishing village that stretches in the bay of the bay, with taverns that taste the ouzo and sea meze and the boats in front of you inspire at least for big dreams. Or they make you feel you do not need anything else.

Always remember that behind the luxurious yachts and famous visitors there is an ancient history: Meganisi is inhabited since the Neolithic era and was first mentioned by Homer in the Odyssey. His story always met with Lefkada.

Corinthians, Romans, Venetians, Franks, Ottomans, Frenchmen, Russians and Englishmen passed away before the island was proclaimed Greek in 1864. Do you want to know more?

From Vathi you will definitely have a boat that will lead you to your whole beaches, but also to the sea caves like Giovanni, Demon and the biggest "attraction" of all, that of Papanikoli: the locals will tell you the hideout of the legendary submarine during the Second World War.

In Vathi you will find the only taxi on the island, if not the vehicle in person, its driver's phone at PPC's poles. You do not come with your own car anyway, there is good transport, but the best means of transport remains the boats.

Two traditional settlements, also in the northern part, embellish your summer frame in the green island. Above Vathy, Katomeri reminds of a neighborhood of old with stone houses, small shops and bars for those who do not say "no" to the nightlife.

On the day, however, from here you will descend to the famous Atherinos, to see the turquoise waters reminiscent of the glass so uncomfortably as they stand.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

The Fanari with the fine pebble beach, Porto Elia and Limonari are beaches on your way and you must definitely look for them.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

The third settlement, Spartochori, and the first stop for the ferry, except for the island's alleys, has the privilege of a panoramic view of Scorpios and the coasts of Lefkada and a beautiful harbor below it, Spilia, usually full of boats and sailing as if they were set up for photography.

Meganisi a small diamond of Greece chosen by tycoons for holidays - Tripatricks

Ai-Giannis, Pasoumaki, Ampelakia and Loutrolimni or Bereta are also some beaches that will be suggested by those who have gone to Meganissi, but here is the point of discovering yourself so much that you can tell them.
