Help needed for location pre sailing

My husband and friends are doing a Sunsail course for a week from Lekfada town next July, whilst the wives and kids holiday in a hotel/villa. We are all sailing in the second week. None of us have been to Lefkada before and have no idea where to stay. I've heard the west coast is 'windy'? Is locating in the south too far, ie. we will need to get up to Lefkada on arrival and departure with all the kids.

Sorry to be so vague, but I seem to be going round in circles on this. Any helpful recommendations would be gratefully received.

Stay anywhere along t the east coast probably Nidri for access to boat trips and things to do for the kids Vasiliki a bit too far

Nidri is best for things for you and the kids to do. It's about a 25min drive from Lefkada town, you can get the bus but with kids and baggage a taxi would be easier! Nidri is a nice laid-back resort with everything you need, a decent bus service, shops and cafes, and boat trips.

The west coast is best for beaches but not great for access,go for a day trip if you can but use the east coast as your base.

Agree with Nidri just back and the Hotel Athos opposite marina was fantastic. Usually go self catering but this made a real change and the views where just amazing best position in Nidri in my opinion.

I walk around the harbour in this trip report and I think I include the mooring areas of the yachts

Yes perfect! We’re probably looking at staying in 3 villas (hopefully all together!) as we have lots of kids between us. I’m not sure if this is possible in this area but I’m looking!
