worth the detour if you visit the marble quarry (worth the stop too) on the way and end in Naoussa.Take your time, have a coffee and loose your way in the cute little streets (like we did... ;-). The people are VERY friendly and not pushy. Nice shopping.Park on the outside parkings but you can drive down as if you drive past the village and park more below it (coming from the marble quarry). Save you a climb.We rented scooters (faster than quads and more energy efficient!) to do that trip... very nice! Nice scenery.Tip for the scooter : take a 1.5L bottle with you and fill it up with benzine at the gas station and put it in the luggage box on the back of one of the scooters (without other stuff! It smells!). This way you can get 'just enough' gas, you don't have to stress because most of the time the meters don't work and you aren't giving half a tank back to the rental agency. Saves you 5€ per scooter per day...
Lefkes is such a beautiful town ! After visiting and lunch we took the Byzantine Way to Prodromos. Remember to take enough water with you. The experience is one of the best and you will feel a nice perfume and pease the whole way.
Lefkes is a cosy village situated at the slopes of the mountains. There are nice places to sit outside and there are thousands of possibilities to shoot nice photos. Just walk around and take a seat in one of the kafenions or tavernas. Besides it's less touristic than Naoussa which can be very crowded especially in July and August. There are many staircases in the village, therefore these areas are not suitable for wheelchairs.
A beautiful settlement which hide some unexpected surprises. We did know now nor expected to see something so idyllic. the beauty of the streets is completely hidden when the village is seen from the streets.
If you need a break from the beach and all the villages by the sea, spend some time in Lefkes. Walk around the narrow streets, have some great Greek food in the taverns and definitely try the amazing Greek, cold coffee - frappe! We drove there and back, not sure what other transport is like. Overall, great views, taverns and you forget you are on an island...
great drive up here and beyond in our little buggy, quite typical Greek village but well worth a visit and a stop at one of the many nice places for a drink (one by the church was very nice)
