Kefalonia Holiday Villas

Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian group of islands. Its beautiful and much photographed beaches may not come as a surprise and you may have heard of its scenic pine clad mountains, you may already be familiar with Greek hospitality and perhaps have experience of the Mediterranean climate but this is one island that far exceeds its reputation and really is as pretty as a picture or should we say the picture.

Opportunities for cycling, walking, windsurfing, riding and caving will keep the active busy.  But if you prefer to explore in a more leisurely manner then regular pleasure boats make the short ‘hop’ over to the mythical Island of Ithaca or go ‘island hopping’ taking in Lefkas, Meganissi and Skorpidi (owned by the Onassis family).  If you get hooked by seafaring then you can hire a small boat and take off to discover your own beach. By car you can drive between pine clad hillsides where monasteries dot the countryside or along scenic coastal routes stopping at picturesque harbours where yachts gently bob at anchor and pastel tinted houses line the quaysides.

The island is a natural wonderland; home to wild horses that roam the natural park on the slopes of Mount Aenos, its highest mountain, and nesting ground to loggerhead turtles that come to bury their eggs in the soft warm sand of its  beaches. There are underground lakes and limestone caves and all along its 250 kms of coast where azure sea meets limestone cliffs or pine clad hills in a wash of turquoise at an abundance of small undeveloped bays.

Many of the long sandy south and east coast beaches have grown into small and sophisticated beach resorts but with no building over 3 stories permitted, tourism has been contained, maintaining a pleasant laid back atmosphere.

For those with an interest in the past, Kefalonia has a diverse history which can be explored in the Museum in Argostoli the capital and whilst there, the walk across the 900 m bridge to Drapano  is a must or  the short ferry ride across to the Lixouri peninsular from which you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins in the bay. Stop for a coffee or something more substantial at one of the tavernas on the elegant waterfront or amongst the palm tree lined streets.

The Kefalonians themselves are known for their hospitality so that wherever you go you’ll be greeted by a hardly discernable nod of the head and a ‘yassou’ and very soon you’ll find yourself answering and relaxing into the Greek way of life.

"Just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Kefalonia (your Villa in Kefalonia, Argostoli) Just wanted to let you know we loved it and will be back, please pass on our thanks to Diane who telephoned us on our first day and sorted out our WiFi (our fault we did not look in the Villa file for the password!) and thanks for the cakes left by the owner."

A Palace fit for Odysseus
"Our family of five were the first guests in this beautiful villa. I use the term "guests" rather than "visitors" because while superbly appointed, it retained a homely feel as befits its use in high summer by its Athenian owners. We appreciated the many personal touches and effortless practicality, and the impeccable services of Alexadra for whom nothing was too much trouble. In particular she cares tenderly for the large, newly planted but already blossoming, garden. Late sping is an ideal time to visit, both fully to appreciate the floa and fauna, and to avoid the many tourists who doubtless later pour into the nearby, picturesque harbour of Fiscardo..."
