Athani village is the nearest village towards the southwestern beaches of Lefkada.

The small, but charming village is located in the west mountains, which are characterized by winding roads and narrow alleys. The roads of Athani sometimes seem one-way, so you have to be very careful with driving! Next to the main road there are some taverns with friendly staff and great views to the area, many of these are popular among the visitors of the village.

The houses of Athani were built amphitheatrically on the west hills of Lefkada island, which are facing the endless blue of the Ionian Sea. Around the settlement there is a lush vegetation with olive groves, wineyards, colorful bougainvilleas and other mediterranean plants. If you spend some time in Athani, you will find a mini market and a souvenir shop in the center also.

Agriculture around Athani

In the region of Athani you will see many local farmers, who are selling homemade honey products in small wood kiosks. These honeys are delicious and recommended for tasting, or even buy as a gift. In addition to honey you can buy in these places local olive oils in high quality, and homemade wines also. When you are driving towards Porto Katsiki beach, you will meet dozens of these wooden selling places!
