Artist's Description

NYDRI, Lefkada island, Greece

Nydri and the surrounding area of the Municipality of Ellomenos are located on the south-east side of Lefkada island.
The large, leeward bay of Vlychos, which extends far into the dry land, constitutes an excellent natural harbour, hospitable to all the boats which sail in the waters of the Ionian Sea. The whole of the Vlychos peninsular is a luscious green which hugs the coast and reaches round as far as the opposite side from Nydri. It is as though the islands of the Prinkiponisa (Prince’s Islands), which are small wooded islands, Skorpios, Skorpidi, Madouri, Sparti and, further away, Meganisi float upon the calm sea. A few years ago, Nydri and its surrounding area was nothing more than a small fishing community. Most of the inhabitants lived in small, semi-mountain villages located higher up, at Rachi, Vavkeri and Platystoma, and were involved in agriculture, live-stock rearing and fishing, as were all the villagers of the island. The rapid development of tourism gave the area a great push and won over the majority of the locals.
