Centre of Marantochori - Marantochori Lake

A 2,580m walk, taking 35 minutes and graded 1 for difficulty. We set off from the centre of the village on the provincial road to Lefkada. We then take a country asphalt road, which eventually turns into a dirt track. After a pleasant and relaxing walk we visit the Chapel of Agios Georgios and then end up at a little lake.

00:00 We park in the centre of the village, where there is plenty of space, in front of the cafés (GPS: N38 37 806, E20 38 954, H=80m)  Centre of Marantochori - Harbour of Marantochori (Start).
00:02 We walk up the asphalt provincial road towards Lefkada and after 200m come to a small sign on the left indicating an asphalt road heading to the Church of Agios Georgios; this is the road we must take.
00:05 Staying on the asphalt road and ignoring any small paths turning off it, we gradually walk away from the village.
00:07 We come to a crossroads and take the left turn, as the
00:11 sign indicates. After 280m we come to the monastery, which extends its spiritual protection over the village (GPS: N38 37 930, E20 38 676, H=125m). There is a beautiful chapel where the village celebrates the feast day of Agios Georgios each year.
00:14 We return to the crossroads and take the cement road, after a while finding ourselves at a fork. We ignore the cement road heading up to the right and continue to the left. At this point we come into a clearing and continue along the same dirt track heading uphill to the right.
00:20 Here we ignore a cement road heading down to our left and continue uphill, still on the dirt track. On our left there is a bench with cement blocks and a tin roof; we continue uphill bearing right on the dirt track.
00:28 Here we ignore a small country path on our left and continue straight on uphill.
00:31 We come up against a low wire fence, which we should step over and continue on our way.
00:34 There is a big clump of reeds to our right, concealing the lake behind them. There is a small passage where the reeds have been cut and removed and this is our way through.
00:35 Now there lies revealed before us the little lake, a scene of absolute serenity and tranquility (GPS: N38 38 569, E20 38 400, H=150m)  Centre of Marantochori - Harbour of Marantochori (End). This is a place where we will want to stay awhile and enjoy the peaceful landscape. The return half of the walk is just as easy going as the outgoing half.
