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.

Perfect for a long-term Greek island stay

5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Lito for two months in the autumn (October to December) and I can't quite put into words how magical our experience was. From the impeccable interiors to the sublime sea and mountain views, this villa is simply breathtaking and without a doubt the most exquisite place to stay on Kefalonia. The owners are incredibly hospitable and responded to our messages very promptly; although we did not meet in person, we felt very looked after and they were so keen to make sure our stay was seamless. The villa itself is just gorgeous, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs which are tastefully decorated, and on the ground floor the TV room, living area and dining area provide plenty of space for relaxation. Everything has been carefully thought out, and the elegant furnishings make you feel like you're staying in the lap of luxury while also right at home. We came to Kefalonia to work remotely for a couple of months, and we couldn't have asked for a more peaceful property. The inviting terrace was well appointed and meant we could work al fresco while admiring the views towards the sea, or the lights of Agia Effimia twinkling at night. The whole feel was incredibly soothing, with lush gardens beyond the pool and an outdoor dining area offering yet another shady spot for us to work; and the outdoor kitchen was a special touch that we weren't expecting! The location is also a real highlight, as the villa is discreetly tucked away yet it's just a short 5-minute drive to the shops and restaurants at Agia Effimia in one direction, and in the other the legendary Myrtos Beach with its brilliant blue seas. We highly recommend Cafe Giorgos whose staff are very friendly and the food is wonderfully fresh; turn left at the top of the road when you're coming from the beach. Other places not to miss which aren't far from the villa are Assos (by boyfriend proposed to me here!), Sami, Drogarati Cave, Melissani Lake and the beach at Antisamos. This whole area really showcases the best of the island! Overall, Phivos and Lito went above and beyond to make our stay perfect, and helped us so much even long after we had returned to the UK (we had a fleeting weekend visit back to the villa in January, in the snow!). It's this care and attention to detail that makes the whole experience unrivalled. Without a doubt we'll be coming back to this magical place.

Beautiful villa for a relaxing holiday

5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in this beautifully appointed villa with stunning views to the coast. We loved the infinity pool and being able to relax on the patio areas around the villa. The villa and gardens have been finished to a very high standard - the owners had thought of everything to make this an ideal holiday spot.
