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.

Weather in Kavarados

Most of the tourists looking to spend time in Kavarados holiday homes go there during the usual holiday months between June and August. At this time of year sunshine is plentiful and rainfall is scarce. Temperatures average between 26 and 28°C which is not to say that there are no days when temperatures soar beyond the 30°C mark. Savvy travellers will land in Kafelonia in September as temperatures are slightly cooler then, though still averaging in the twenties. There are also less tourists hanging about. In winter temperatures average between 15 and 17°C.

Brilliant villa, terrific views and stunning island

5 of 5
The property was ideal – spacious, lovely pool and fantastic sea view. Although there are two other villas nearby it felt really private, with lots of trees and greenery. Housekeepers Ante and Spiros (who built the villa – impressive!) kept it really tidy and refreshed the towels every few days. We tried out lots of different beaches but probably our favourite was Kaminia, just a 5-minute drive from the villa. Scala is just a 10-minute drive away with lots of great restaurants and bars, as well as a large beach. A car is essential, but then it's easy to make lots of day trips to other parts of the island without spending all day in the car. I highly rate this villa and dealing with the owner was easy and straight forward. All in all, the whole family loved it.

Wonderful Kefalonia!

5 of 5
We returned to Villa Petra this summer after first visiting 2 years ago. The villa is perfect for a family of four and we can't fault it! Kefalonia is a wonderful holiday destination - gorgeous weather and a great selection of beaches, restaurants and some good options for half or full-day trips (in hire car). Everyone is so friendly. We had such a relaxing time, even the teenagers didn't bicker (helped by having Wi-Fi!). See my previous review (Sep 2015) for more info! Thanks Pete & Ange!
