Villa location

Located on the hillside above the tranquil resort of Katelios, Villa Orchidea has fabulous views over the Southern coast of the island and sea. The resort of Katelios is famous for its fresh fish tavernas and its picturesque beach, all within a short drive from your holiday villa. For anyone wanting to see more of what this beautiful Greek island has to offer, the resort of Skala and capital, Argostoli, can easily be reached by car.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Originally a quiet fishing village, Katelios is slowly developing and has a choice of small mini markets and shops where you can pick up fresh produce to cook up on your own BBQ. A larger supermarket is within a short drive.

Bars and restaurants

The resort has a small selection of excellent tavernas. For a larger selection, venture into Skala which has a great choice of places to eat lining the beach. The area has a large selection of bars, tavernas and restaurants as well as several large mini markets and an ATM.

Beaches

The beautiful beach at Katelios is within a few minutes' drive. The area is also home to the environmental centre where a group of volunteers aim to protect the turtle nesting ground in nearby Mounda Bay. The larger, more developed resort of Skala, with its long sand and shingle beach, is about 4 miles along the coast.

Places of interest

Argostoli, the capital of Kefalonia, is 20 miles to the West of Katelios and is well worth a visit, not only for the choice of facilities here but also for the beautiful scenery. Other attractions in the area include Agios Giorgios Castle, around 30 minutes' drive North towards Peratata, Agios Gerasimos Monastery around 40 minutes away by car, and the Melissani and Drogarati Caves, an hour North in Karavomilos.

Other activities

Motor boat hire is available from the small marina at Katelios. Or a choice of watersports can be found on the beach at Skala.

Remember…

Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Loggerhead Turtle Sanctuary

There is a protected nesting site at Kefalonia called Kaminia beach. The sea Turtle Protection Society work hard and long to protect the fascinating creatures when they come in to nest on the beach. The females heave and tug themselves across the beach to find a nesting site digging holes and laying small round eggs. An average nest would have 120 eggs and once they are safely covered with warm sand the female returns to the water. Some females will lay as many as four times during the nesting season and the eggs take about two months to hatch. The baby turtles dig their way out at night and head instinctively for the sea. This natural pattern can be disrupted by noise and lights. Sometimes the body clock in the baby turtles goes away and they pop out during the day. If you see a turtle its best not to touch it as its essential to their survival that they make their own way to the sea. The Marine Turtle Project was set up some years ago to observe and record the nesting female turtles on the beaches near to the villages of Skala and Ratzakli on the south-eastern tip of the island. This project has continued to this day and incorporated a conservation programme to promote the protection of the beaches where these creatures lay their eggs. Just outside Katelios you will find a little old schoolhouse which has been transformed and is now the base for The Katelios Group for the Research and Protection of Marine and Terrestrial Life. The group was founded in 1994 and consists mainly of local people with an interest in the long term future of Kefalonia
Activity

Boat Hire and Watersports

Hiring a boat is a fantastic way of exploring ,Kefalonia's coastlines. A licence is not required, nor do you need previous experience as novices will receive introductory instruction in boat handling before being let loose! ,

Watersports, yacht charter (skippered or bareboat), scuba diving and riding are also available.

Activity

Agios Giorgios Castle

The medieval castle of Agios Georgios is situated near the village of Peratata, on a 320m ,hill. The castle was built in the 13th century to fortify the island's old capital which was housed here until 1757 AD. The castle owes its name to the large church of Agios Georgios, which is situated in the region.

The castle, along with the island, fell in succession into the hands of the Byzantines, the Franks, the Turks and the Venetians. On 24 December 1500, after a persistent battle with the Venetians, the Spanish and the people of Kefalonia, the castle was liberated from the Turks.

The severe damage to the buildings led to a restoration supervised by the mechanic Tsimaras, which lasted for four years. Until the earthquake in 1636, the castle thrived and housed storage rooms, a hospital, barracks, private residencies and a prison in which the more liberal people of Kefalonia were kept, whom the current conquerors considered dangerous.

The Castle's entire surface area is 16,000 square metres, and the walls are 600 m. long and 1,015 m. high. The three ramparts face Argostoli, the East and Peratata, respectively and ,includes loopholes, observatories and cannon positions. Inside the Castle, ,its possible to ,gaze at ,the tower called "Old Fortress" as well as part of the walls and ,underground arche. There is, in addition the throne of the Venetian Lord and a catholic church, where the nobles of Kefalonia were buried.
Activity

Glass Bottom Boat

Based in the Southern resort of Skala, "Nautilus" is a specially constructed boat of high standards. Due to these high standards there is little movement in the boat, which is absolutely necessary because of the glass ,bottom. The possibility to watch the seabed, to view the rocky coast or to cruise the Ionian Sea waters at a speed of up to 30 knots, feeling the breeze ,and the sea very close will ensure a pleasant cruise.
Activity

Horse Riding

The nearest riding schools are located near Sami and Lixouri where you can learn to ride, improve your skills or simply enjoy yourself. There are mountain trails ,and beach riding ,to swimming with the horses.

Activity

Agios Gerasimos Monastery

Agios Gerasimos is the patron saint of the island. On its feast day, the monastery is swarming with pilgrims. According to tradition, he was born in Trikala of Korinthia and was a member of the famous Notaras family. He became a monk and spent twelve years in the Holy Land and five years in Zakynthos. He came to Kefalonia in 1560 and stayed in the cave of the same name, south of Argostoli.

Later, he founded the monastery and took residence there until his death on 15 August, 1579. Two years later, on 20 October, 1581, his relics were placed inside the monastery. He was canonized in 1622. At the courtyard, there is a big plane tree and a well, which is said to have been dug by the saint himself. Inside, there is a trap-door where he is said to have spent the greater part of his life. On the 15th of August and the 20th of October, big festivals and processions take place. Many miracles are connected to the saint's relics and icon.
Activity

Kefalonia Robola Wine

The Robola wine cooperative winery is located at Kefalonia Island, Ionian Islands, and western Greece. More specific at the plateau of the Community of Omala, in an ,altitude of 700 metres, in the slopes of the gorgeous and green full , Ainos Mountain

In Kefalonia the unique wine, Robola, is grown and produced. A harmonious white wine of high quality, it is one of the most well known wines in Greece (Hellas). Its wonderful balanced taste, strong note and unique white colour are just a few of the qualities which have established its reputation world-wide.The cultivation of this particular grape is known to be really hard work on the slopes of Mountain Ainos, where the soil is poor and stony, and vineyards can be found as high as 800 m.

The winery is open from 9am to 8.30 pm and is well worth a visit.
Activity

Melissani and Drogarati Caves

Located in the area of Karavomilos near Sami, lies the Melissani cave which is undoubtedly among Kefalonia's most breathtaking attractions. Discovered in 1951 by speleologist Yiannis Petrohilos, Melissani cave also includes a beautiful lake with crystal blue waters which is 22 metres below ground level and its maximum depth is about 30 metres.

The complete tour is done by boat, first making a round trip around the first hall with the hole in the roof. Then the boat passes the island on the opposite wall, where a small channel exists. This channel is too narrow to row, but there is a rope at the wall and the gondolier pulls the boat through. The second hall is a huge cavern with an arched roof, which was also formed by a collapse, but this cave is more to the ,centre of the island and because of the slope of the hill, the overlying rock is still thick enough. The second chamber has numerous big stalactites and stalagmites.

Drogarati's Cave, which is also close to Sami is 60m deep and ,was discovered 300 years ago, when a part of it was destroyed because of a strong earthquake, and so the entrance was created. ,Initially the cave was developed and used by the community of Haliotata, under the supervision of the speleologist Mrs. Petrocheilos and since 1963 it ,has been ,open to the public.
