Agios Ioannis – Myli
The unique island of Lefkada offers an array of activities for our guests to get involved with. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet the wonderful natural world of the Ionian through rivers and waterfalls and spend some time out and about. Whether you prefer to cycle leisurely around the island or go horse riding, go kite surfing or scuba diving, there is a plethora of activities to indulge in during your holidays in Lefkada. Our dedicated personnel will be able to help plan your ideal day out.
Apart from the lagoons and the fields, there are other places worth visiting for their natural beauty. Among them, we would recommend the waterfalls of Dimossari gorge near Nidri and the huts of the village Voltoi.
The plateau of Eglouvi is definitely a must, where you will not only be stunned by the scenery but you will also learn how the rare lentils of Eglouvi are grown.
Lefkada has a rich cultural heritage with which you could become more acquainted by visiting the Archaeological museum in the Town of Lefkada or the Ecclesiastical museum in the Faneromeni Convent with a small but amazing view and a balcony that offers a great spot for photos. The convent itself is a landmark of the island along with the church of Agios Ioannis which was built in 1477! Another not-to-be-missed sight is the Fortress of Agia Mavra, very close to the Town.
The best of all the events that are organised on Lefkada in the summer is the International Folklore Festival. The island has a strong literary tradition since it has been the birthplace of many well-respected Greek poets, such as Sikelianos and Valaoritis. The locals have continued their love for literature and art by organizing the Literature and Arts Festival. The event peaks with the folklore festival and the town becomes a lively parade with folklore dancers from all over the world sending a message for peace.
