Holiday Villas in Desimi

Desimi is a small resort located on the east of Lefkada, backed by stunning mountain scenery. Flanked by hills, the picturesque pebble beach is sheltered from strong winds, creating a calm and relaxed cove. You can arrange watersports from the beach or enjoy a relaxing lunch with sea views. With the towns of Nidri and Sivota within easy reach, a Desimi villa will be an excellent base to explore Lefkada.

Exploring Desimi on Villa Holidays

In Nidri you’ll find a good selection of mini markets and souvenir shops, ideal for picking up a gift to take home. In Lefkas Town there is a host of shops, including clothing, gift and book shops. On the outskirts of Lefkas you’ll find the larger supermarkets.  

There are some lovely traditional tavernas overlooking Desimi Beach, with stunning sea views. Alternatively, head into nearby Nidri, approximately 15 minutes’ drive away. Here you’ll find a host of options offering a wide selection of cuisines, with some great restaurants overlooking the harbour.  

Nestled in a stunning bay, Desimi Beach is a narrow, pebbled beach with calm, clear waters that are ideal for swimming. You can arrange pedalos, standup paddle boarding and kayaking from the beach – why not rent a kayak and explore the nearby caves? There are a couple of tavernas lining the beach offering delicious Greek food with a fabulous sea view.

From the harbour in Nidri you can arrange a boat trip to the neighbouring island of Meganisi. Back on Lefkada, be sure to visit the waterfront town of Sivota, with a selection of tavernas offering traditional Greek cuisine and great seafood. On the way, why not stop off at Lefkaditiki Gi Winery to sample the locally made wines? Or, head south to Vasiliki to try your hand at kitesurfing.
