Staying in Lefkas island is a once in a lifetime experience as the island offers innumerable choices for all tastes. For those who enjoy living in a more urban environment, the capital of Lefkas and Nidry would be the primary choices. For the rest, the villages around the islands coastline are filled with apartments and hotels rated from 2 to 5 stars depending on whether the visitor wishes a more economic or a more luxurious solution. The areas in the east facing the Greek mainland offer a quieter environment ideal for children, while the west coastline facing the open sea offers for a more idyllic experience. Especially in this side of the island paying for a room with a view is a must. Generally in most hotels the services are satisfactory and local people are kind and eager to help.
