Alkyon Apartments & Villas Hotel
Ranked #2 of 7 Hotels in Lygia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2012

The hotel is in a quiet place, the equipments are very nice (the swimming pool and the decoration beautiful).
The people are very welcoming, the rooms (apartments) are clean and well organized.
A bakery and a supermarket are at 5 minutes by foot, so it is very useful. A very good restaurant is located at 10 minutes by foot on the sea front.

We stayed in Alkyon hotel for two weeks in August/ September 2012. Hotel area is beautiful, pool is very good (also for children), room has everything you need, service is so nice and warm. Location is quiet even tough there is quite a much traffic on the main road.

Lots of bakeries, tavernas and food shops nearby, bigger supermarkets like Lidl about 3 km away. Bicycles provided for your use, free of charge. The lovely owner makes the best frappes in whole Lefkas (maybe even in whole Greece!).

Located near the bus stop, it's less than 10 minutes ride to Lefkada and about 20 min to Nidri, costs less than 2 euro/direction/adult (taxi to Lefkada about 8 euros, to nidri 25). From the same stop you can reach lovely sandy beaches like Katishma (about 3,5 euros and about 45 minutes, bus stays about 15 min in Lefkada bus station, enough time to pick some cold soda etc. from Carrefour located very near the station).

For running we recommend way up to Katouna or along the beach (to left). You can also run in Lefkada port area and on the way to mainland. In Lefkada is a gym and a dance studio on the same road that bus drives to the city.

For shopping, head to Lefkada, for partying to Nidri. Try a boat trip from Nidri port, island-hopping (many variations) or the Meganissi ferry (about 2 euros/direction/adult).

Hotel is very suitable for travelling with kids. Childrens' pool and some water toys, no playground. There is a nice play area (5 euro/kid) near the cafe Seagull, walk to the beach and take the road to right or walk to the main road and then left (both ways less than 1 km). Also some computer games for older kids. Near Nidri beach is a playground (free) and a little amusement park.

To stay in Alkyon Hotel is a real pleasure and perfect for complete resting holidays with family. (we stayed a week before taking doing a sailing trip Ionion Sea)

Its a exellent and safe place to stay with kids (running inside and outside of hotel to the beach) and there are some bikes at disposal for going to the excellent backery or riding near the beach (only 100m from the hotel).

The host, Tassia, is a super woman who is always smiling and at your disposal with kind words and help/support.

If you need a car, her husband Georges, can help you to have a good and safe car (he is renting cars). We recommend to hire a care to visit the beautiful beaches at the west coast

A mini market is near and some nice restaurants right (200-300m) on the beach with tables on the beach. The local fishers bring their fish to the restaurants

The wifi is good and if you balcony is giving view to the swimming pool, you can use wifi from the balcony. Otherwise there is a little nice bar to use your tablet/laptop

The rooms are clean and cleaned every day. Basic kitchen and furniture is present to have agreable stay. We had also air conditioning in the room. The beds are ok

The swimming pool is nice and well regular cleaned. Near the swimming pool is a little bar where you can have some coffee, drinks or ice cream for the kids.

Lefkas town is 10€ taxi or 10min by car or you can take the bikes and is recommended for a visit.

For joggers, there is a nice run on the beach (ask Tassia) to the left of the beach and back (5km) or further to the port and back (9km)

Again, Tassia and her family are so nice that it gives an extra sunshine to the hotel.

I would like to start this review by saying from the heart a big THANK YOU Ms Tassia for the way you make us feel the whole week we spent at your hotel. We spent 7 nights in a 2 floor vila with other young couple like us and have the best vacation in Greece. I will continued others revies by saying that the service was excellent, the rooms were clean, the entire hotel was wonderful. It is a quiet and sophisticated place for anyone who want to relax and enjoy the sun at the pool. Lygia is a lovely small fishermans town with warm people at every step. The Lefkada Island has the best Greek beaches like Porto Katsiki, Agiofili, Egremni, and more. For those who want to have an unbelievable experience go to Lefkas Island, especially to Alkyon in Lygia we( Mihaela, Gabi, Claudia si Florin) can guarantee you the best time of your life!

Went for a 8 day trip to Lefkada at the end of July. We booked an apartment for four people at this lovely location. We were impressed with the excellent service provided by the owner of this hotel, Anastasia. She is very helpful and in the same time ready to provide you with all your needs. We can say that the design of the hotel is sophisticated and the room service impeccable.
We really recommend the place to anyone visiting Lefkada, either for a few days or for a few weeks. Travelers you will not be disappointed!

Stayed for two nights during a business trip, after discovering Alkyon hotel at Tripadvisor. Lovely calm family environment and clean rooms, equipped with dining corner and dishware, as described in other reviews. The big plus is the attention of the owner Tassia and all the employees to their guests (from a welcome cold refreshment, to having a button sewed, to any other need you might have) always with a warm friendly smile and sincere personal care, something you do not meet even in five star hotels. Do not miss the chance to feel this hospitality yourself when you visit Lefkada !

We spent an amazing time at this hotel in September 2011. The property is really beautiful, a complex of villas with more apartments or studios, surrounded by a green courtyard. The pool is excellent and very well maintained. The rooms are very clean and very tastefully decorated. Our studio had a coffee maker, plates and pots, everything that we needed if we wanted to serve breakfast in the room. The owners made us feel at home each day of our stay, they helped us with information on what to see and where to go and they always had a friendly smile for us.
Lygia is a small fisherman village, very quiet, but we had our car with us and we explored the entire island. Lefkada has amazing beaches and the scenery is breathtaking.
