Villa Location
Villa Lourdas Beach is a detached property with a fantastic location, just above one of the longest beaches on the south coast of Kefalonia, Lourdas Beach. It is a short downhill walk to the beach, where this is a selection of tavernas and bars, as well as a few shops - perfect for those looking to leave the car at home. If you do choose to hire a car, the island's capital, Argostoli, and the Old Village of Skala can both be reached within 30 minutes' drive.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Lourdas has a couple of small shops and mini markets, with the nearest 200 yards uphill from your villa - great for stocking up on holiday essentials. If you are looking for a greater selection then head to Argostoli, with some good clothes and souvenir shops, as well as a local fruit and vegetable market.


Bars and restaurants

An unspoilt and well-maintained resort, Lourdas has a number of good tavernas and bars offering a relaxed atmosphere. Many of the restaurants serve traditional Greek cuisine, but you will also find some seafood on offer too.


Beaches

Lourdas Beach is just 150 yards downhill from your villa and is often thought to be one of the most beautiful beaches in Kefalonia. A long sand and pebble beach, there are sunbeds and umbrellas available for hire as well as some local tavernas for lunch. In high season there is a life guard in attendance, and you can rent small motor boats from the beach.


Family fun

The best way to discover Kefalonia is from the water. Why not hire a boat and explore the pebbly coves and small bays, or spend the day snorkelling in the crystal clear water?


Places of interest

The Old Village of Skala, just 30 minutes' away, has a lot character and is well worth a visit. It's a great place to relax with a coffee or cold drink and enjoy the views, or you can take a self-guided trail around the village and view the old Roman villa with spectacular mosaics. Alternatively, Argostoli is a modern harbour town with great restaurants and shopping, perfect for a day trip.


Other activities

If you enjoy walking then Lourdas has some scenic paths along the coast towards the Monastery of Sission and Katsonas beach.

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
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.
Activity
Captain Correli's Mandolina
Kefalonia was buzzing in the summer of 2000 with film crews and the actors Nicholas Cage Penelope Cruz and John Hurt who were starring in the film Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Most of the filming took place in Sami, a village 9 km south of Agia Efimia, where a huge and beautiful set was built. The campsite of the Italians was built on the beach of Antisamos bay (see left). North of Agia Efimia village you will find the bay shown above (where part of the filming took place), and it can be reached in ten minutes by boat.

Myrtos beach, which is shown to the left and on top of this page was used in the film as well and is situated approximately 5 minutes by car west of Agia Efimia. Myrtos Bay (left) is where the bomb explosion on the beach took place in the film.

For those of you who don't know it - here is the story line -It is 1941 and Captain Antonio Corelli, a young Italian officer, is posted to the Greek island of Kefalonia as part of the occupying forces. At first he is ostracised by the locals, but as a conscientious but far from fanatical soldier, whose main aim is to have a peaceful war, he proves in time to be civilized, humorous and a consummate musician. When the local Doctor's daughter's letters to her fiancé - and members of the underground - go unanswered, the working of the eternal triangle seems inevitable.

You should bring the book with you and spot the locations

The villa was well equipped, clean and comfortable. The pool was fab as was the shaded seating area and the balconies were great for catching those last few rays of sun. Our teenagers enjoyed using both the table tennis and pool tables. The villa was exceptionally well sited for the beach, mini market and beachside tavernas. We had a lovely, relaxing break and although it was tempting to stay put at the villa and Lourdas we managed to tear ourselves away and visit Assos, Ayia Efimia and Sami and looked down at Myrtos beach. Next time we come to Kefalonia we will have to make it up to Fiskardho!
