Explore the beautiful village of Mytikas

The historic land of Etoloakarnania envied the green emerald sea and decided to dive, to steal some of its beauty. Thus Mytikas, the fairytale fishing village, was created. It is built on a narrow strip of land surrounded by the blue waters of the Ionian Sea, opposite the island of Kalamos, near Lefkada.

Mytikas is a relatively new village. Residents of the surrounding area and mountain villages organized the settlement at the beginning of the 19th century. It is a picturesque village, with deep roots in the land of Xiromero, surrounded by high mountains and with its face turned towards the rejuvenating sea breeze.

The beautiful fishing village may become your ideal starting point for wonderful holidays. It offers excellent-quality food, affordable prices and it is very close to a multitude of amazing destinations. In summer, the largest part of its main paved road is pedestrianized, making it ideal for long walks and cycling.

Your camera will focus on well-preserved mansions, on stone houses with red tiled roofs, genuine samples of traditional architecture, on picturesque narrow alleys, on beautiful gardens and hand-painted power poles.

The spirit feels lighter and the heart calms deeply while the gaze travels upon the endless blue sea or rests upon the green pine trees of Kalamos.
