Traditional mountain village with great panoramic views to the western side of Lefkada island. Kalamitsi is located in one of the most charming places in Lefkada, surrounded by mountains and olive groves.
The atmosphere of Kalamitsi is calm and peaceful, like the most of the mountain villages in Lefkada island. There are several apartments and studios on the top of the hills, some of them have amazing panoramic views to the Ionian Sea. The main road drives through Kalamitsi, but the road is very narrow and you have to pay attention for the traffic and your vehicle. Somewhere it looks like you drive in one lane, but there is an oncoming traffic too! The number of parking places are strongly limited in the center of the village, but Kalamitsi is not so popular as Agios Nikitas.
Kalamitsi is a quite small settlement, but even it has a few supermarkets, taverns and other stores. The nightlife is not significant at all, so if you prefer bustling places, check other villages like Lefkada town, Nidri, Vasiliki or Agios Nikitas. The people who come here will enjoy primarily the relaxing atmospheres and the quiet of the surrounding mountains.
