Lefkas Ionio 7 & 14 days

IONIAN ISLANDS

“The Eptanisa islands are situated along the west coast of Greece in the Ionian sea. The complex is comprised of the following islands Corfu, Paxoi, Lefkada, Ithaka, Cephalonia, Zakynthos and Kythira. Although the complex includes many smaller islands such as Othoni, antikythira, Kalamos, Meganisi, Kastos, Elafonissos and Erikoussa with countless coves for swimming, diving and exploring, it is the afore mentioned seven big islands that give the complex its name Eftanisa (=seven islands). These islands are famous for their excellent climate and renowned for their exquisite landscapes, their deep blue waters and the “kantades”, folklore songs with a distinctive melody, which the locals have always sung.”

Lefkas and the Ionian Sea in general are among the most beautiful destinations you can choose.
