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.

Nothing was to much trouble during our stay, Joy was a source of so much local info. Local taverna was outstanding! With delicious local dishes.

The 6 of us enjoyed every day in kefalonia, wether we were out exploring the island or simply relaxing by the pool this property allowed us the holiday we wished for. It is located about 20 minutes from Agolstoli and around 40 minutes from Skala therefore offering a good central location for getting around the island. Wendy and Dave met us at the airport helped us to the villa and aided us with any queries, although there really wasn't much required as far as help goes as the information pack provided to us gave us everything we needed to know about the property, local amenities and even as far as the local Greek culture. We will be booking our next holiday here without any doubt as 1 weeks is nowhere near enough time to see everything this island has to offer.
