Widely known as the “Caribbean of Greece”, Lefkada island amazes visitors with its exotic blue coloured beaches.
Located in the northeastern part of the island and connected to the mainland through a small bridge, Lefkada is easily accessible by car, so there is no need for a ferry.
Lefkada city is the capital of the island and a unit of Lefkada municipality. Formerly, the capital was built in the Castle of Agia Mavra. Lefkada is the most important town of the island, with a population rising up to 13500 inhabitants mainly engaged in the occupation of fishing, tourism and the land cultivation.
It is ideal destination for couples, families or large groups of friends as it offers peaceful isolated beaches as long as family friendly places or party lovers spots.

Lefkada along with Evia are the only islands in Greece that you can visit by car.
A floating bridge connects Lefkada with the mainland (Acarnania).
The reduction of the distance and therefore the travel time has decreased significantly because of three major projects in the region.

Dear fellow artventurers,
The idea of organizing an alternative camp derived from my love for Music, my Country and Lefkada island – my birthplace . My 30 year experience as a musician and educator, showed me that a person best develops their skills and spirit when acting and living in nature.
Welcome to our ARTVENTURE World
