Activities around Villa Jasmine
Your stay at Villa Jasmine 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.
