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.

The property was clean and well equipped with lovely outside living areas. Spartia village is a beautiful place with several good cafes and restaurants, it caters well for tourists but with the attraction it is not a busy tourist hotspot.

For us, the holiday ticked ALL the boxes - a very well equipped and comfortable villa, immaculate private pool, idyllic peaceful location, within easy walking distance of good eating places & bars, most everyday needs available in the village, only 10 minutes to Argostoli and the airport (but no aircraft noise), the list goes on......... We particularly enjoyed our leisurely breakfasts by the pool with its extensive views over the mountains & sea, and the several places to relax in either sun or shade at different times of the day. Also, if you have a sweet tooth like me don't miss the cake shop! My wife also highly recommends the Martinis in George's Bar. There's not much we can add to previous reviews, and have no hesitation in highly recommending Villa Theos to future guests. Many thanks to Amanda & James for allowing us the use of their beautiful villa.

The villa is excellent with everything you could possibly need, hair dryers, beach towels, adaptors, books, films etc. The pool area is fantastic with an array of seating and sun loungers and built-in barbecue. The location was great for exploring the island and had a large number of really good tavernas only a few minutes drive away. The proximity to the airport was great for arrival and departure and was not a problem. We definitely recommend this villa and would return for another holiday.
