Kalamitsi

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.

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 you have to pay attention for the traffic and your car. Somewhere it looks like you drive in one lane, but there is an oncoming traffic too! The number of parking places are limited here, but Kalamitsi is not a popular one, so you can find some during summer days too.

The settlement is a small one, but it has a few markets, taverns and other shops. The nightlife of Kalamitsi is not significant, so if you prefer bustling places, check other villages like Lefkada town, Nidri, Vasiliki or Agios Nikitas. The people who come here will enjoy relaxing atmospheres and the quiet of the surrounding mountains.
