Make a holiday villa in Karavados your home away from home

The Ionian island of Kefalonia offers the nature lover more than they can sink their teeth into. It boasts picturesque beaches fringed by towering cliffs and boasting a host of geological curiosities as well as forested landscapes dotted with mountains. The place is also rich in history having been home to the legendary King Odysseus. Kavarados, a tranquil corner of this magnificent island that sits close to the coastline is favoured by holidaymakers as a base from which to explore Cefalonia, as the Italians call it, and other Ionian islands. And rightly so as they will find a lovely mix of holiday rentals in Karavados to suit their needs. Those travelling as a family will want to book the spacious villas there not least because of the stunning seaside views they command. Most of these Karavados holiday villas have swimming pools among a host of other great facilities.

Things to do

-Beaches: Bordered by amazingly clear turquoise waters and carpeted in soft, golden sands, the Kefalonia coastline is simply incomparable. Pretty enough to have been used as the set for a number of film productions is the Antisamos Beach. This is a stretch of white, pebbly shoreline with such clear waters you can see little fish swimming underneath. It provides everything a sun-starved holidaymaker needs from free parasols and loungers to a selection of bars and eateries.

-Food and drink: Karavados holiday home residents on promenades along Kefalonia’s pristine coastline will find incredible restaurants and bars on the way. They can seek refreshment at the Akri Seaside Bar if they want a place to shelter from the summer sun while sipping chilled cocktails and gazing idly into the endless waters of the Ionian Sea. For an unforgettable taste of lamb prepared in traditional Greek method and served in friendly surroundings one can pop into To Perasma.

-Boat trips: Sailing around the Ionian islands surveying the incredible geological features that punctuate its coastline is one of the delights those booked into Karavados holiday villas can look forward to. There are a number of boat rentals available along the Kefalonia coastline from which tourists can hire vessels to go exploring the secluded beaches, hidden caves and imposing cliffs. The stunning Drogarati Caves and the Koutavos Lagoon are among the attractions they’ll encounter.

-Hiking: Those who would like to hike through the rugged mountainous landscape of Kefalonia will probably want to schedule their visit for autumn or late spring as the heat during summer can be quite oppressive. Along the way hikers will be exposed to the island’s amazing range of flora and fauna, which includes over 200 bird species. When they climb up Mount Ainos they’ll be treated to breathtaking panoramas stretching all the way to the endless blue of the Ionian.

-Historical monuments: History buffs will also find something worth photographing or putting down in their journals in Kefalonia. The Evangelistria Church is one of them and the ancient structures in Argostoli, which include a lighthouse and a Venetian castle, are others. They can top off on visits to these sites with a visit to the Archaeological Museum of Argostoli. Exhibits here include artefacts collected from the prehistoric and Roman eras.

Lovely clean villa and pool. Explored even more of the island this year. Had not visited Sami before. Enjoyed cocktails by the harbour. Visited our old favourites - potami beach, Assos, boat hire from Agia Effimia etc. Greeted warmly by tavernas in Lixouri who remembered us from previous years. Ate in the many tavernas in Lixouri and by ferry to Agostoli. You need a car to get around. Had some good days of relaxation around the pool. Villa and pool both regularly cleaned and Frances and Barry were very friendly and helpful as always. Hope to return again next year!

The views every morning were stunning, village sweet and has everything you need whether you want to eat out or cook at the villa. Amanda visiting the first full day was nice and it was good to have some extra information if we wanted to explore which was our intention but with only a weeks holiday we ended up chilling to the max and having to force ourselves to venture out. The outside kitchen and dining/seating area was a big pull for us when we viewed all villas we liked, this one was great! We would recommend a jeep like car to manage the long rocky track as every time we took our hire car out we winced when we heard a noise in case of sudden damage from rocks to the underside! We did get woken at 7am Sunday morning by a bulldozer close and clearly another villa is going to be built soon so I would consider that build noise if we wanted to book the villa again in 2018. Having all towels and good bed linen provided and changed during our stay was excellent, the robes came in handy after we had jumped into the pool a couple of times- October isn't the best season for unheated pool dipping unless you are very young and don't feel the cold but it was fun nonetheless! Superb laundry area in the cellar which was a reminder that you don't need to pack so much when facilities like this are at your fingertips. A wonderful villa and situated in a fabulous position, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of the villas to others. Kefalonia is beautiful and I know we will be back to the island for sure - especially as we didn't visit the caves or get to hire a local boat etc. Do pack good quality mosquito repellent and if you can citronella tea lights as you may not see the blighters but you feel their bites later on! We did buy and leave a fly swat too for persistent wasps but it's just as we have experienced in other Mediterranean countries. Go, enjoy, you won't be disappointed!
