Villa Location
Villa Chrissos is set on a wonderful hillside position overlooking the bay. It is 10 minutes' walk down to the pretty resort of Lourdas with its beach, restaurants and bars. Lourdas is a relaxed resort and a great base from which to explore the southern part of the island, including the nearby capital of Argostoli, half an hours' drive away. Villa Vounaki is located slightly above Chrissos, making them both ideal for families or large groups.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

The villa is within easy walking distance of a mini market, perfect for purchasing day to day essentials and souvenirs to take back home. Walk through Lourdas and browse the local shops, ideal for topping up on your holiday amenities. Argostoli has a wider array of shopping including a supermarket and also a selection of open fruit and vegetable stalls.


Bars and restaurants

Lourdas has many tavernas and a few bars spread throughout the village and by the beachfront. Argostoli's main street, Lassi, is packed with bars and restaurants where you'll find traditional Greek cuisine, fresh fish, meze, Italian and even some British staples.


Beaches

The resort of Lourdas is developed around its pebble and sand beach, one of the longest in South Kefalonia. Here you can hire sunbeds and umbrellas, as well as small boats and jet skis in the summer months. The small beach of Kanali and shallow sandy bay with beachside taverna at Trapezaki are both within a 5 minute drive, with crystal clear water and soft sand.


Family fun

Kefalonia's leisure activities are mainly water based. You can arrange kayak hire near Lourdas Beach, or why not venture along the coast to Skala which has a larger selection of water sports on offer? Boat hire is readily available in the area, or, if you're feeling adventurous, you can catch one of the daily cruises to the neighbouring islands of Ithaca or Zante!


Places of interest

The island is full of history and culture - there is certainly no shortage of things to see and do. In this area are the Castle of St George, Mazarakata Tombs and the monasteries of Sission and St. Andreas. A little further afield, Gerasimos Monastery (named after the island's patron saint) and the Robola Winery are both worth seeing. Argostoli Harbour is also a great place to visit, where you can see the loggerhead turtles cruising around the fishing boats delivering their daily catch.


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.

Activities and things to do
Activity
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
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
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
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.
