Marantochori is a small agricultural village in the southern side Lefkada, located between Nidri and Vasiliki.
The main road which leads in the east divides Marantochori (Marandochori) into two parts. Passing through the settlement next to the road you can see old plane trees, olive forests, vineyards, large mediterranean bushes and agricultural areas. Marantochori has some taverns, a supermarket, and of course some apartments and rooms for rent.
In the center of Marantochori there was built an interesting bell tower made of stone, directly next to a small square. The atmospheres of the settlement is very peaceful, you feel like you are somewhere far away from the noise of the world.
The most inhabitants of Marantochori are engaged in agriculture, and tourism is less popular here, as in other parts of Lefkada. This area is a specially good sample to see what if there was no tourism on the island.
The nearest beaches to Marantochori are the emerald coloured Ammoussa and Afteli beaches, which are situated about 5-6 kilometers away from the village. If you want some hustle and bustle, visit the charming fishing village of Vasiliki, which is about 6 kilometers from Marantochori, or Nidri (16 km).
