Lefkada Athani

General information

Athani Village is located 34 km northeast of Lefkada Town. It is a lovely mountainous village and has a population of 200 inhabitants most of whom are engaged in agriculture and tourism.

The first people who settled down in Athani were Italians while in the late 15th century, the village received some Spanish-speaking Jews. In the 1950s and 1960s, many residents immigrated to other countries and Greek cities, in search of better working conditions. Today the village has a well-developed tourist infrastructure receiving a great number of visitors every year.

Athani is also close to some of the most famous beaches of Greece like Porto Katsiki and Egremni. A few kilometers from the village is the promontory of Lefkada where you can enjoy some breathtaking views of the Ionian Sea and the beautiful sunset. According to Menander, an ancient Greek poet, Sappho who was also a great poetess herself, fell from the rocks into the sea because Phaedon didn't love her.

Athani offers a plethora of modern amenities like mini-markets, local services, cafes and restaurants. However, it still is one of the finest examples of traditional architecture with old houses, quaint villages and small churches.

Athani is one of the most interesting areas on the west coast of Lefkada as it combines natural beauty and many historical sites. Nearby this fabulous location, except the Lefkatas promontory, lie the ruins of the ancient temple of Apollo.
