Exanthia is a traditional and quiet village nestled in the mountain slopes of Lefkada
island. Through the village passes one of the island main roads that goes from Lefkada Town
. The settlement was established in Byzantine times and is one of the oldest on the island. In and around the village there are old churches that can be seen. The houses are stone built, in traditional style with one or two stories and adorned with light brownish tiles.
In Exanthia there are a few tavernas, and a dozen villas and holiday homes which offer the perfect escape from the crowds and busy city life. Some of lodgings and tavernas boast exceptional view to the Ionian sea and the spectacular sunset.
