Villa Almond is located on one of the island’s most pristine hillsides, just 700 metres from the village Tsoukalades. Ideal for calming and relaxing holidays close to nature, this villa is also near most amenities, such as super markets, traditional coffee shops and taverns.
This idyllic location offers unsurpassed views of the Ionian Sea. The cosmopolitan town of Lefkada is also just a 10-minute car ride away to the north.

Beaches of exquisite beauty stretch along the entire western coast of the island, boasting white sand, pebbles and crystal clear waters.
About 4km away from the villas you will find the beach Pefkoulia, where pine trees reach the sand and offer shade from the sun.

The isolated beaches at Kalamitsi and Milos near Agios Nikitas offer a more tranquil and remote atmosphere, as well the unparalleled beauty of an exotic paradise.

Activities around Villa Almond
Your stay at Villa Almond is packed with activities that will make your holiday all the more enjoyable and special.
Take advantage of nature’s purity and appeal by venturing into the wild and taking long walks while enjoying the incomparable views of the Ionian Sea.
As distances are short on the island, it will be easy for you to wander the cobblestone streets of mountain villages such as Karia and Eglouvi, but also the picturesque fishing villages such as Agios Nikitas and Sivota. Here you can try local delicacies, such as semolina pie and salami, enjoy delicious meze and taste the Eglouvi lentils, renowned throughout Europe. Leave the best for last, or in this case, the evening. A late-night stroll through the historic streets of Lefkas’ old town will transport you to a by-gone era infused with romance and the allure of fairytales.
For those in search of adventure there are adrenaline-fuelled activities. On the Agios Giannis beach, where the wind is favourable, you can windsurf and kite surf. In addition you can admire the blue sea below while you paraglide overhead.
Hiking, mountain biking and horse riding activities will bring you closer to this unique natural world.
Lefkas’ contemporary marina and the nearby wonderful islets are a sailing paradise and ideal places for scuba diving.
Your holidays can only be complete with a day trip by boat to the islands of Skorpios (owned by shipping tycoon Onassis), Meganissi, Kasto and Kalamos.
The only certainty on these holidays is that your days will be so filled with wonder and creativity that boredom is out of the question.
