Semi-mountainous, built on an altitude of 380 meters, the village of Athani proudly overlooks the enchanting Ionian sea, offering mesmerizing views to the endless blue and the nearby islands. Athani is rather popular in the later years, as it is also conveniently located near the astonishing beaches of Egremni and Porto Katsiki, making it the ideal vacation choice upon visiting Lefkada.
