There are lots of different ways to get to Pelican’s House from all over the world. The easiest way is obviously to fly into our local airport Preveza. This is approximately one-hour drive from the house. The best website to use is www.skyscanner.com to find flights from any destination. You are looking for flights into Preveza (PVK).
Flights are available into Preveza from May to mid-October. Outside of these times and during the summer season (if you would like alternatives) you can fly into the following airports:
Corfu: Fly in here, take a 10 minute taxi down to the harbour and grab a ferry into Igoumenitsa. These are the ferry times http://www.corfu-kerkyra.eu/html/english/timetable.htm. From Igoumenitsa it is an easy 1.5 hr drive to Lefkas (I can arrange car hire from there). There is also a bus to Lefkas you can get.
Athens: From Athens it is a 5 hour drive to Lefkas, lots of different options for car hire or there is a bus. There are also flights from Athens to Preveza – check on www.skyscanner.com for these.
For any of you driving from Europe you can take a ferry from Italy – Venice, Ancona or Brindisi. You want to take the ferry to Igoumenitsa and from there as I have said it is 1.5 hour drive to Lefkada.
For those of you driving from closer by i.e. no ferry required please let me know if I can help with the best route to get to us.
A car is essential for staying at Pelican’s House – we are happy to organise car hire for you. If you need information or assistance in booking travel to us please let me know, I have pretty much travelled into Lefkas every way possible!
