Enodia Hotel

With high-class style and a spot close to the beach, the Enodia Hotel is really easy on the eye. The pool is set in a decked terrace lined with sunbeds. There’s also a circular pool on the deck for little paddlers.

The hotel restaurants specialise in homemade international cuisine. Guests often pile their plates high in the buffet, with return trips incredibly common. For a snack, head to the cafe where you can order a pastry with a coffee.

After dinner, evenings are usually spent relaxing on the bar’s terrace with a cocktail.

Overview of Lefkas

As one of the quietest of the Greek islands, holidays to Lefkas attract those in need of relaxation. Handily, Lefkas is also joined to the mainland of Greece by a causeway, so it’s easy to mix island living with mainland exploration.

This wonderfully green island is packed with olive groves, rolling hills and stunning mountain scenery. On the east coast, hills roll down to lush valleys while, on the west coast, there are dramatic cliffs. And as the island’s only 35 kilometres long, it’s simple to see all the best bits when you stay at the Enodia Hotel.

Things to do in Lefkas

At the Enodia Hotel, you’re only 50 metres away from the beach, so rest and relaxation are always on the agenda.

The port of Vassiliki is also only a 10-minute walk away. This spot is incredibly popular with windsurfers due to its position on the south coast, and as a result, the wide, shallow bay in Vassiliki is often awash with multi-coloured sails. If you’d like to learn, book a lesson in the morning when the winds aren’t as strong!

After a day of windsurfing, the restaurants in the resort stay open late. The best are in the port area and serve Greek classics like souvlaki, gyros and freshly-caught seafood. With plenty of seaside fun and water sports, you’ll enjoy days on the water and a chilled evening vibe.

Resort Summary

The wide, shallow bay here, combined with strong afternoon breezes, contributes to an ideal micro-climate for windsurfing on your Lefkas holidays. Vasiliki is, in fact, considered one of the best places in Europe for the sport and windsurfers flock here in high summer, particularly July and August. They’ve even given the afternoon wind the nickname of ‘Eric’.

Beginners will often start their lessons in the morning while the wind is still mild, then can watch the pros in action when Eric blows in at about 2pm to 3pm. If you plan on bringing your own equipment, many Vasiliki hotels offer special facilities for storing sails, surfboards and wetsuits – otherwise you can hire equipment at the beach.

As well as windsurfing schools, the pebbled shore here is packed with kite-surfing and sailing clubs, and scuba diving is also available.
