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'.

About Kefalonia:

MELISSANI

Melissani is a steep-sided cave (3.5 km long, 40m wide and 36m high) where its salt waters fed by the stream that disappears underground at Argostoli. The water is a gorgeous deepblue and the boatmen enteraining. Melissani lake was discovered in 1951 by the speleologist Gianni Petrochilo .... more ...

Beautiful villa on a stunning island!

  • 5 out of 5
We had a brilliant stay at Villa Argante. The villa, gardens and pool are beautiful and as soon as we arrived, we felt relaxed and at home!
The villa is in an ideal location for exploring the island - Lakithra is a very pretty village which has a lovely bakery and cake shop which we visited regularly! together with a few tavernas, a mini market, a couple of bars and a pharmacy.
Kefalonia is a beautiful island and there is so much to see - we hired a car and had some brilliant days out - we also took the car on the ferry over to Ithaca from Sami which we would thoroughly recommend!
Thank you David and Elaine for letting us stay in your beautiful home - we absolutely loved our holiday and hope to return very soon!

"A home from home"

"A home from home"
  • 5 out of 5
We have stayed in Kefalonia many times and Villa Argante is by far the best property that we have stayed in. The facilities are second to none, whatever we required was on hand which made it feel like a home from home. The views from the upstairs balcony are amazing and the pool a great size. The outside area is such a pleasant space, that we rarely ate out at all, rather choosing to eat at the villa instead. The villa itself is very spacious and simply lovely. David and Elaine are also the most helpful owners, which made for a fantastic holiday from start to finish, thank you.

Suburb villa - excellent location!

  • 5 out of 5
Just returned home and wish we hadn't had to! The villa was excellent and the location was fantastic. Lakithra is a true Kefalonian village with tavernas and a traditional mini market and bakery all of which are only a small stroll from the villa. Conveniently close to the airport (especially up the whoosh whoosh road as my children call it) and suburb views of Argostoli, the mountains and even the Lixouri peninsular.
The villa itself was ideal with its excellent pool and beautiful gardens as well as the feeling of space in every room.
A very relaxing holiday which was just what was needed. Thank you so much to Isobel and her husband for their efforts and David and Elaine for letting us use their beautiful home.
Highly recommended for families and couples - anyone who loves Kefalonia will love this villa.

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.
