The village of Agios Petros is a traditional mountain settlement, faced to the southern bays of Lefkada.

Agios Petros was built near to the highest mountain in Lefkada (called Stavrota), on the hills above Ponti. The middle sized village offers great panoramic views to the bay of Vasiliki. Agios Petros is characterized by old houses, narrow streets and some hairpin bends. In the village center you can find a small city square, taverns, a mini market and a bakery.

The houses of Agios Petros were built amphiteatrically on the slopes of the mountains, surrounded by lush vegetation. Next to the buildings there are often flowers and plants, which make the village charming and friendly. If you visit Agios Petros, you have to drive carefully because of its narrow roads and hairpin bends.
