Kefalonia is a beautiful island in the Ionian Sea, west of mainland Greece. It's renowned for its sandy coves and dry, rugged landscapes. Its capital, Argostoli, is built on a hillside overlooking a narrow harbour and its coastline is made up of limestone cliffs, bays and short strips of soft white sand. With its sparkling azure waters, dazzling beaches and deep emerald green mountains, the large Greek island is a popular holiday destination for families, friends and couples alike.
The villa is within a short 15-minute drive of Argostoli. There you can stroll through the markets and pick up unique souvenirs, watch the fishermen bring in their catch at the harbour or pay a visit to the Corgialenios Historical and Cultural Museum, where there's an extensive library of rare books. For lunch or dinner, there's a central square, lined with plenty of local cafes, bars and restaurants. For picking up your own produce, there are also plenty of supermarkets, bakeries and shops nearby.
The nearest beach to the villa is Trapezaki – a beautiful stretch of coastline 15km southeast of Argostoli and 2km from Lourdata village. The 5km long beach has shallower and clear waters that are perfect for swimming or snorkelling, and there are opportunities for you to rent small self-driven boats or take part in water sports like sea kayaking and paddle boats. There are also plenty of beautiful underground lakes and caves around the island for you to discover by boat trips or scuba diving excursions.
For day trips, you could drive an-hour from Argostoli to the picturesque port of Fiskardo. There you'll find charming 18th-century buildings, alongside popular fish restaurants and boutiques. Kefalonia is a short distance from Ithaca, another Greek island in the Ionian Sea. There's a daily ferry that departs from the port of Sami in Kefalonia. You can also hop on a boat to see the nearby islands of Meganisi, Scorpio and Lefkas, and stop off at pristine beaches for swimming.
