The village of Tsoukalades is known as a small settlement which was built in the north mountains of Lefkada, with some apartments, restaurants and shops. The village is situated just about 6 kilometers away from Lefkada town, between the capital and Agios Nikitas.

Due to the mountainous location of Tsoukalades there is no direct sea exit or port, but the west coast is just a few kilometers away, and can be reached easy. The main road leads through the village, where most of the taverns, supermarkets and apartments were built. This part of the village is dedicated for tourism, but the center of Tsoukalades (the old village) is a little further away, and road signs show the way.

The streets of Tsoukalades are surrounded by olive groves and pine forests, so if you like lush vegetation, the area of this village is definitely green.

Next to main road you can find bakeries and coffee bars (one of our favourite is Irene’s Bakery) where you can buy a cold and hot drinks, an you can take away, when you are on route to the west coast.
