Villa Location
Villa Michas is located on the outskirts of Lourdas Village. There are several tavernas and a mini market within 5 minutes' walk, whilst the restaurants, shops and beach in the centre are around a mile away. Lourdas is a laid-back resort, a great choice for a relaxing holiday as well as a good base from which to explore the southern part of the island, including the nearby capital of Argostoli. Villa Latos is next door.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Within a short walk is a bakery and a well-stocked mini market with beach supplies and a cash machine. The beachfront also has a couple of small local shops. There are no markets as such on the island but the nearby capital town of Argostoli has a large array of open fruit and vegetable stalls.


Bars and restaurants

Lourdas has many tavernas and a few bars spread throughout the village, plus the restaurants along the beachfront have lovely views over the beach, and all serve wonderful traditional Greek cuisine. You can even walk to a selection of restaurants and a bar within 5 minutes.


Beaches

The resort of Lourdas is mainly centred around its long sand and pebble beach, where sunbeds and umbrellas can be hired, 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 5 minutes' drive if you fancy a change of scenery.


Family fun

Aside from hiring jet skis in the summer from Lourdas, you can also arrange kayak hire nearby, 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

There is certainly no shortage of things to see and do in the area, the Castle of St George, Mazarakata Tombs and the monasteries of Sission and St. Andreas, to name a few. 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, you may even see the loggerhead turtles swimming between the fishing boats!


Other activities

Melissani Lake and Caves, and Myrtos Bay are 2 of the most popular attractions on the island, both within an hour's drive. There are also some great walking routes around the immediate area, both hilly and flat, which are a great way to see more of the island's stunning scenery.

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
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 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
Mount Ainos National Park
In 1962 Mount Ainos was declared a National Park by the Greek state. The forested area of the range now covers an area of 2826 hectares. The larger part of Mount Ainos is given over exclusively to the unique Kefalonia pine (Abies cephalonica), with its straight trunk, its rich pyramid-shaped foliage and its characteristic pine needles. The species retains its purity on Kefalonia since it is protected by the isolation of the island. The highest mountain on Kefalonia, Ainos, extends like a spinal cord through the southern part of island. It has a total length of 10 km and its highest peak is Mount Soros, at 1628m. Mount Roudi is an extension of this range to the north-west, the highest peak being Yioutari, which rises to 1125m.
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.
