Private chef

Fed up with cooking? Sit back and leave it to an expert. Our private chefs are happy to cater in the privacy of your villa, tailoring their expertly crafted menu to suit your tastes.

Sample local Lefkada wines

Did you know that the Vardea and Vertzami grapes are cultivated only in Lefkada? Take a tour of Lefkaditiki Gi winery in the south of the island and discover its unique red, white, rose and sweet wines. Visitors can see the wine-making process, walk through the vineyards and of course sample a range of their unique wines.


Wine to your door

Save yourself the trouble of lugging heavy bottles on a hot day and treat yourself to a carefully selected Greek wine hamper delivered to your villa door, hand-picked by local wine specialists Anja and Bob.

Olive oil experience

Take a stroll around a hundred-year-old olive grove and learn all about the organically produced olive oil at the Lefkada Micro Farm, which claims to produce the purest oil on the island. You'll be able to see the production process, have a go with a manual olive press and try a range of oils using a tasting wheel to help you describe and understand the complexity of flavours of the 'Greek Gold'.


Farm-to-Table gastronomy experience

Forget food miles with this hyper-local dining treat. The experience starts with a guided tour of the farm to see how your food is grown, then on to the open air kitchen for the main attraction of the day, the 7-course Farm to Table vegetarian menu, accompanied by carefully paired wine from a Lefkada vineyard. All the organic produced is 100% chemical free and 100% delicious!

Traditional Greek cooking class

A chance to take a break from the blue of Lefkada and go green. Discover the fresh organic produce of Lefkada Micro Farm and learn how to prepare and cook traditional vegetarian recipes. Enjoy the fruits of your labours over lunch; a truly interactive experience.

Perfect your pastry skills

Phyllo is a classic and very versatile Greek staple, and if you've never made it from scratch before, this is the master class you need. You'll go through the whole process, from kneading and stretching the dough to filling it with a variety of sweet and savoury stuffing, ready for baking in the wood-fired oven. There's also time to explore Lefkada Micro Farm, learn about their organic produce and of course, eat your phyllo pastry pies!



Family fun on the water

A half day skippered boat charter is perfect if you have early risers or younger guests who might not manage the full day, and Starboard boats come equipped with beach toys and board games to keep everyone entertained, plus water scooters for hire for an extra thrill for grown ups. Itineraries are tailored to your wishes, but could include Meganisi, Sivota, Kastos, Kalamos, Ithaca, Vasilliki or Paxos, with breakfast on board. Adult groups also very welcome too!

Stay longer...

If you're really looking to experience more in Lefkada, why not consider adding 3-nights in a boutique hotel to your 7-night villa holiday?
