Sfakiotes Residency Programme is a privately owned, non-profit artist residency programme in the Sfakiotes mountains of Lefkada island, Ionian islands, Western Greece. Since the popular programme was founded, it has hosted 10-20 international guests yearly.
The program`s mission is to encourage multi- disciplinary artistic creation and art- related scientific work. Artists from all areas, such as visual artists, musicians, film makers, as well as producers, curators and art researchers are welcome to apply.
The rent includes water, electricity, heating, air-conditioning, a WiFi internet and full furnishing including towels & sheets. The residency is a traditional stone house that was fully renovated into an artist residency in 2010. The house is rented as a whole. A maximum of four (4) people can stay at the house for a period of 2 weeks to 2 months at a time. The residency building has 2 open floors, one bathroom with a washing machine, an open kitchen upstairs, a stone garden, a balcony facing north-east and a small, private parking lot. Families and spouses are allowed in this residency.
The drive to the nearest city of Lefkada by car or by public transportation takes 20 minutes and 5,5 hours to Athens international airport.
