About Kefalonia: Kefalonia is the largest of the Ionian islands, unspoilt, friendly, with a beautifully varied landscape. The beaches in the South of the island are generally sandy, & many are safe for swimming & provide excellent snorkelling. If you need a bit more from your holiday than relaxing by the pool or beach then there are many places worth visiting; villages such as Assos and the beautiful harbour of Fiscardo which especially in summer attracts many yachting enthusiasts. Also worth a visit is the beautiful church of Agios Gerasimos, the Drogarti caves and the Melissani Lake or a day trip to Ithaca. The dramatic Mount Ainos, 1628m, & its surrounding National Park provides excellent walking opportunities, particularly in the spring & Autumn, & is home to the islands native wild horses, eagles and osprey The famous Robola vineyards are found in the nearby Omala Valley.

About Kefalonia: With only 32,000 resident islanders during the winter time. Lefkas to the north and Zakynthos to the south the island is firmly on a tourist trail and is growing. Despite the annual influx of visitors, mainly English, the island is so big it is still possible to get away to places where you are unlikely to meet a soul for days. Vast tracts of forest cloak the rugged limestone landscape, Mt. Ainos is the highest point, 1628 m. Kefalonia has much to offer to the visitor: caves and lakes of unique beauty, long beaches, bays, gulfs, some of the best shores in Europe.

Lixouri is the capital of Palliki the penisular of Cephalonia opposite Argostoli and is connected by a local ferry. Sami and Poros are the main transport links to Kefalonia, Sami more recently famous for becoming the site for a rebuild of old Argostoli in the Kefalonia box office hit film 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin'.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Our holiday was lovely, over all too soon unfortunately. Villa is as wonderful as I remembered. I did notice a few more lovely touches around the place. It was just what we all needed, total relaxation in wonderful surroundings, my mum really didn't want to leave.

AMAZING VILLA AND POOL IN BEAUTIFUL LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Argante was everything we hoped for and more. It easily accommodated 6 of us and had home from home facilities which meant we had to do nothing more than relax and enjoy our holiday, doing as much or as little as we wanted. The views were amazing, sunsets incredible. As it isn't overlooked, there is a high degree of privacy. It's in a very quiet location and we loved listening to the sounds of the goats, chickens and birds. The local village is great and has a mini market for any supplies you need, a fab bakery, some little tavernas and the people were all very friendly and welcoming. It would have been easy to just stay at the villa and enjoy spending time in the pool, but we did make a great effort to go out and about and am so glad we did. We hired a car and visited some amazing places and beaches. We fell in love with Kefalonia and will definitely visit again. Thank you, Families Stallard, Hodgson and Lisak from South Wales.

COULD NOT HAVE WISHED FOR A MORE PERFECT STAY!

  • 5 out of 5
Villa Argante is beautiful and wonderfully located, amazing views. The pictures do not do it justice! We were delighted with every aspect of our stay, there was a welcome pack of essentials and the entire property was spotlessly clean and wonderfully presented. I would say a home from home- except the villa was even better! Everywhere was exceptionally well maintained from the garden and pool to the inside of the building. In fact we were so happy and content at the villa we spent almost every day lazing around the pool.
Lakothra village is quiet yet has a local shop and restaurants/bar if you don't want to venture out too far. Each morning we walked to the local bakery to buy fresh bread and sometimes a pastry. At the cake shop there is a vast array of lovely cakes, ice creams and baklava to sample at good prices. We also used the obelix restaurant for takeaway giros for €2 each! Everybody we met in the village of Lakithra was friendly and helpful even if we weren't always speaking the same language.
We hired a car for the duration of our stay which we collected at the airport and used to explore the island a little and found some great places to eat in Lassi and Argostoli. It was 5-10 minute drive to the local supermarket (lidl) where we stocked up our fridge and freezer for the fortnight.
Although Villa Argante is only a 10 minute drive from the airport there is no noise from this at the villa. It is so quiet and peaceful. The only sounds come from the local animals and wildlife. The odd goat, a cockerel, birds and insects. It really is a place to relax and unwind.
Costa costa beach at Lassi is lively, with water activities and a bar.
It was very hot during our stay but a couple of minutes of putting the air con on in the villa would cool us right down. There is also wifi provided which we found very handy to keep in contact with home and for entertainment.
I would recommend this place to anybody as it would suit couples and families of any age. Elaine and Dave have thought of everything and each little touch made us feel so special and welcomed during our stay. We would definitely love to return to this beautiful island and stunning villa in the future. Thank you!

FAMILY HOLIDAY

  • 5 out of 5
Have just returned from a two week holiday at villa Argante, and what a villa. I always find some thing missing in our accommodation but not this time,it is so well equipped. The pictures don't do it justice, it's peaceful, spacious, clean and the views are lovely. We spent so much time in the pool and in the evening listening to Greek music and watching the bats drink from the pool. We have been to Kefalonia many times and its like going home we know it so well. This time we took our grandchildren and they had a fabulous time which made this holiday the best by far. Kefalonia is a very special place, and if you want the perfect place to stay choose Villa Argante, we can't recommend it enough.

TWO WEEKS IN PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
only just arrived back & all ready missing that lovely villa before going to kefalionia i read all the other reviews & i can only say they are all right the villa lived up to its reputation. My only concern from last year staying in a villa in rhodes would the air con be cool enought has last year it was so hot & the air con just did not work but the aircon in villa argante was fantastic in fact i had to turn it off after an hour during the night it was cold,The pool was cool & refreshing during the hottest parts of the day villa argante was light bright & clean seen the pool guy atleast twice checking the water.We went to the cake shop but its deadly for waist line but there cream horns are worth it there were two restrauants we tried byrons & ostrix . Byrons has lovely traditional greek food & the portions are large in fact the starters are like main courses. ostrix again nice greek food but is more fast food try their
giros kebabs just 2 euros.We found the beaches from the airport to lassi the best sandy beaches & shallow for the kids. Each night after our meal out we would return to the villa & sit outside by the pool watching the bats flying around the pool they put on a really good display whilst we sat drinking & relaxing.All i can say is thanks david & elaine your villa is 5 star luxury & if we do return to kefalionia we would love to stay at villa argante again.
