Villa Location
Located in a group of 4, Villa Lourdas Kerkyra is a detached property set in a residential area above Lourdas Bay. The nearest restaurant from the villa is only a short walk away and the closest mini market is just a couple minutes more. The centre of Lourdas, with its fabulous beach, tavernas and shops, is just a 15 minute downhill walk away. Further afield, the island's capital, Argostoli, is only 30 minutes' drive away. Our villas Lourdas Lefkas, Lourdas Kefalonia and Lourdas Ithaki are all in the same residential road.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

If you are looking for some souvenirs to take home there are a few small shops in Lourdas, but for a wider choice head to Argostoli. Here you'll discover some good clothes shops as well as a local market selling fresh fish, fruit and vegetables. For your daily essentials, the nearest mini market is just 625 yards from your villa.


Bars and restaurants

There is a good choice of traditional tavernas in Lourdas offering a selection of fresh seafood as well as typical Greek cuisine. The resort has a relaxed atmosphere with a few small bars - perfect for an evening glass of wine.


Beaches

Often referred to as the most beautiful in Kefalonia, Lourdas Beach is only 15 minutes' walk downhill from your villa. The sand and shingle beach is the longest stretch on the south of the island, with sunbeds and parasols for hire as well as small motor boats in the summer months.


Family fun

Kefalonia is well known for its beautiful coastline, and the best way to discover all the secluded coves and bays is from the water. Why not rent a boat from Lourdas Beach, pack a picnic and enjoy a day at sea? With clear waters, the snorkelling is superb and great fun for all the family.


Places of interest

The popular resort of Skala is only 30 minutes' drive away, with not only a great beach but also a fascinating history. Take a self-guided walk around the old village, walk along the ancient walls and stop off at the old Roman villa, where you can see the spectacular mosaics. The island's capital, Argostoli, is a harbour town and well worth a visit for the shopping alone, as well as the local museums and fabulous tavernas.


Other activities

Lourdas has some wonderful walking routes through the surrounding countryside. Or, if you are in Skala for the day, why not rent bikes and explore the coastal paths?


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
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.
