Lazarata is a village in Sfakiotes locality, 10 km away from Lefkada Town, Lefkada island. It is a relatively bigger village compared to the neighbor villages of Asprogerakata, Spanochori and Kavallos. Nearby is the village of Karya which is one of the biggest inland villages of the island. Lazarata is surrounded by hills covered with trees, bushes, vineyards and small patches of farmland. The village has traditional look and feel, with houses built of stone, windows with wooden covers and roofs with light brown tiles. The stone paved squares are lined with tall trees and get alive in the evening when locals go out for a walk and gossip. There are tavernas and shops mostly along the main street.

There are a few villas and holiday homes for rent which are either old renovated houses or new buildings in traditional style. The location is not a popular place for tourists because it is not at the seaside. People visit Lazarata to enjoy calm, idyllic and tranquil vacation away from the everyday hassle.

Lazarata must-see places are the two old churches of Agios Dionissios and Agios Spyridonas, each over 150 years old. Agios Spyridonas is the older of the two, it has pained icon of Archangel Michael over its door and is known for the 3 story bell tower.
