Villa Location
Villa Morea is set on the slopes above the village of Ratzakli, in South Kefalonia. It looks down over olive groves to Mounda Bay, and across the Ionian Ocean over to the neighbouring island of Zante and mainland Greece. The small resort of Katelios, a former fishing village, is 10 minutes' drive along the coast. Alternatively, head to the larger resort of Skala with its long expanse of sand/shingle beach and selection of shops and tavernas, 15 minutes' drive away.

Location features

Local markets and shopping

Katelios has a mini-market and bakery. The larger resort of Skala has a selection of mini-markets, a small supermarket, a couple of bakeries, a butchers and assorted gift shops. Most are located on the main street running from the top of the village down to the beach road.


Bars and restaurants

Skala has retained much of its original Greek charm and offers a large selection of bars, tavernas and restaurants serving local and international cuisine. Katelios also has a few bars and seaside tavernas in the centre of the village and on the waterfront providing the perfect setting for an evening meal.


Beaches

The nearest beach is Kaminia in Mounda Bay a 10 minute drive away. It's a beautiful sandy bay, visible from the villa with crystal clear water. This beach is protected due to it being a nesting ground for Loggerhead Sea Turtles and night-time 'turtle watches' are organised. Skala is well known for its long sand and shingle beach against a backdrop of pine trees and is only 15 minutes' drive away. Both Kaminia and Skala beach have sunbeds and umbrellas for hire as well as a large variety of water sports. Daily cruises and a water taxi depart from Skala Beach to Zante, Ithaka and other beaches. Another great option is Katelios Beach, an un-commercialised sand and shingle bay.


Family fun

Adrenaline seekers will love Kefalonia for its water based activities on offer with jet skis, kayaks and inflatable donuts available for hire from Skala Beach. For a more relaxed way to see the island, boat and glass bottom boat hire is also available from Skala Beach - a range of activities sure to please everyone. Alternatively, venture inland and try horse riding, 40 minutes' drive away near Sami.


Places of interest

Skala Village itself has the remains of a Roman villa constructed in the 3rd century AD. The house belonged to a wealthy owner and the floor has well preserved mosaics depicting gods and animals. Take a boat tour through Melissani Lake, a natural cave system where part of the roof has collapsed, reachable within an hour's drive.


Other activities

The historic Old village of Skala is a great place to explore on foot. Kefalonia is dominated by Mount Ainos which has been designated a national park. A tarmac road goes all the way up to its peak 1,628m above sea level giving panoramic views of the Island and across to Ithaca and Zakynthos. The best time to walk is spring and autumn when the temperatures are lower.

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
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
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
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.

Activity
Scuba Diving
There are places in Lassi, Agia Efimia, Argostoli and Fiskardo that offer an opportunity to scuba dive and our representative will be able to give more information.
