The picturesque mountain settlement of Vafkeri is located in the center of mainland Lefkada, only 9km from Nydri, nestled in the mountains.
It is a very scenic village, with stone-built houses, some inhabited and some tumbledown, with beautiful green verdure. There are two tavernas. One with typical village grill which tends to open only in the high season and the other one has won many awards for its cuisine and it is open throughout the year.
The history of this village goes back to 16th – 17th centuries, but now most of its houses stand empty. It is yet another of the villages which are slowly dying of depopulation.
The view from Vafkeri village, of the shimmering sea of Nydri and Onasis’ “Scorpios” Island, is magnificent.
