What resort to stay in Lefkada?

We are a couple in our late 60`s (going on 40) who every summer for last 24/25 years have gone to Greece always somewhere different, this year fancy Lefkada. We like self catering studios preferably wth pool, we eat out every night at different tavernas, like a resort with a bit of life but not over the top and a nice beach, nearly all the places we have been to in Greece have had that old Greek feel and charm. So can anyone suggest where is best for us in Lefkada? Many thanks in anticipation.

As you have posted at this time of year I assume you are going in September. I think Nidri is the best option for you. There is a wide choice of restaurant/tavernas and it will not be too busy. You can easily catch a ferry across to Meganisi for a day there - only 2 euros each way, and you are on a bus route and it is easy to explore up to Lefkas Town and down to Vasiliki. The beach is narrow sand/shingle but wont be that busy at that time of year. There is also a wide choice of boat trips that leave from Nidri. If you feel that will be too busy then consider Aghios Nikitas the beach is nicer but none of the other options are available.

I'd agree with Vic, if you're going in September you'll find a good choice of tavernas in Nidri and plenty to do. Nidri is not the most picturesque resort in terms of architecture, but the waterfront is lovely, the views across to the islands are fabulous, and there's a wide choice of accommodation, depending on whether you want to be close to the heart of things or back among the olive and lemon groves.

Ag. Nikitas is delightful as a resort and has a lovely little beach, in September it will be quieter but still alive; however, it is not good for access to anywhere else unless you are planning to rent a car. Any of the other resorts would probably be too small & quiet for you at that time of year, except perhaps Vassiliki which will be lively enough but again, not great for access to anywhere else unless you have your own transport.
