Costas and Sophies Aparthotel

The owners of the Costas and Sophies Aparthotel pride themselves on providing a personal service. The family-run feel gets rave reviews on TripAdvisor and the decor is fittingly traditional. Think simple rooms with kitchenettes and a big pool that’s serviced by a bare-stone bar.

The rooms come with everything you need for a self-catering break. There’s a fridge, a hob, a kettle and plenty of crockery. Evenings are pretty chilled, but Nidri’s line-up of tavernas and bars is only a couple of minutes’ walk away if you fancy a change of pace.

Overview of Nidri

When you head on a holiday to Lefkas, you can experience a Greek island getaway with the volume turned down. The island’s incredibly popular with people searching for a relaxing break in the sunshine, and the gorgeous mountain scenery provides the perfect backdrop for any sun-soaked escape.

As Lefkas is only 35km long and 15km wide, it’s easy to see all of the island’s best bits during your stay at Costas and Sophies Aparthotel. Plus, the island is also attached to mainland Greece by a causeway, so you can get out and explore further afield.

Things to do in Lefkas

Costas and Sophies Aparthotel is in Nidri, which is one of the most active places in Lefkas. The busy harbour is the hub of the town, and it regularly takes passengers to nearby islands and beaches. You can also hire a boat for even greater independence.

By the sea, there’s a great selection of bars, restaurants and souvenir shops. If you head out of the town centre, you can also take a walk to the Nidri Waterfalls, where you can make the most of the island’s beautiful scenery.

Nidri mixes modern amenities with the best features of a historic Greek town. It’s a scenic and special place for a Greek adventure!

Resort Summary

Although some choose to sprawl out on a lounger for the day on Nidri’s beach, what a large numbers of travellers come for is the action to be had in the water. You can rent jet-skis and canoes from the watersports centre, or try your hand at windsurfing and sailing as the wind conditions here tend to be just right.

From Nidri’s harbour you can see across to mainland Greece, with a few little islands marking the distance in between. The water’s edge is lined with boats ready to take you off on trips to the most picturesque parts of Lefkas. Or you can sample the many local walking routes, either on foot or by hiring a bike.

The South Ionian Regatta is held in Nidri every year on the third Thursday in September, when you can see hundreds of pretty sail boats racing across the bay.
