“…glorious beaches, sophisticated capital and easy accessibility, Lefkada remains one of the Ionian’s most unspoiled destinations.” The Telegraph Travel
Greece has inspired travellers to return to its islands for many years as they enjoy the beautiful scenery, friendly hospitality and warm weather.
The island of Lefkas (or Lefkada as it is known in Greek) is the perfect choice for your wedding and offers a direct UK flight time of only 3 hours.
With the cost of UK weddings averaging in excess of £15,000 and unpredictable summer weather many couples are choosing to head abroad to the sunshine where you can hold your dream wedding, reception and honeymoon for a fraction of the price.
The island name means ‘white’ and refers to the dramatic white cliffs at the south of the island. Part of the Ionian Islands, Lefkas is blessed by nature and is lush and green in summertime. The first glimpse of the island as you approach over the bridge that links it to the mainland is that of the capital with the grand mountain spine of Mount Stavrotas rising above it. Here you can head towards the beautiful west coast with its fine sandy beaches and azure sea or towards the sheltered east coast, surrounding nearby isles and the mountains of Akarnania on the Greek mainland close by. The island is well known destination for sailing due to the five satellite islands that include tranquil Meganisi and the private island of Scorpios, where Jackie Kennedy married Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis in 1968.
